The talk was okay but it has nothing to do with this thread. This thread is about the possibility of weak AI becoming strong AI. His talk assumes strong AI is possible and just around the corner even though there is not a shred of evidence to support his claims other than his imaginations.
I might as well say strong AI coming into existence will happen at the same time with the second coming of Jesus. The assumptions and evidence to support the claims is about the same.
Ill make this simple we all ready have computers that can write programs. This ability will only get better as our technology advances. Eventually computers will be able to stream line there source code its all ready happening. I think the first true AIs will have the same intelligence levels as its creator. However they can run a million times faster so a researcher may spend years working on a project our AI will be able to accomplish this in week or days. Its inevitable that eventually this technology will surpass its creator. The only way this could be avoided is if we stopped trying. And that isnt going to happen the advantages to any country are just to great. If it takes 50 years 100 years or 1000 years it will happen.we all ready have computers that can beat humans in certain tasks,these abilities have all ready advanced our knowledge. We can write simulations that make the need for experimentation to disapear. For example we can simulte aircraft and test it before we even build it,another example is nukes we can test them without any risk. Simulations are the bases of intelligence when a computer can write its on simulations AI will be created. That computer can imagine any scenario and play it out checking the results.
