The coming superbrain?
John Markoff offers a timely essay - given the recent release of the movie "Terminator Salvation" - on the future of artificial intelligence. There seems to be little doubt that we will eventually be able to design machines that have the emergent property, like ourselves, of being aware of their own internal states. Metzinger suggests that this will happen once the neural underpinnings of his "Ego Tunnel" are made more clear.

I agree, we will eventually be able to design machines that have the emergent property, like ourselves, of being aware of their own internal states. It is a question of engineering and raw computational power. But I doubt that it will be less confused than we are. And it will not be essential smarter than "the wisdom of the crowd" which we witness already today.ReplyDelete
Disputes about what will happen with the further development of artificial intelligence always divide people into two polar points of view, but only after a long time we will know the result.ReplyDelete
Maybe in the future we will be able to develop such technologies, but the main thing is to understand how useful it will be for us and whether it will not bring even greater problems.ReplyDelete
The topic of the development of future artificial intelligence is very seriously discussed in society since there are many different points that seem scary to many of us.ReplyDelete
