How New Default Consensus Realities Instantiate

Encore Post - Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence

Okay, I’ll post this as a “second wind” effort to keep this video moving with a few crucial personal caveats:

  1. Please address the question, “How can we possibly pursue Artificial Intelligence, when we don’t even know what Actual Intelligence is?”
  2. It seems to me that Jeff Hawkins simply must be recruited for the board of this important organization; if for no other reason than to help us not stay drunk on our own Kool Aid. C’mon, if you can bear McKibben, Hawkins is a pussycat.
  3. One key goal of SIAI ought be EI. It’s fine to keep the legacy term for the purposes of continuity, but the OBJECTIVE of AI simply must include EI - Emulated Intelligence.
  4. Following #2, Hawkins book, On Intelligence, should probably become part of the mandatory curriculum for everyone associated with SIAI. Not because we must agree with Hawkins, but because his Memory-Prediction Model is uniquely essential to maintaining a productive balanced approach to this crucial endeavor.
  5. Now, please watch the video if you haven’t already done so, and please do all you can to support this crucial work. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0A9pGhwQbS0]
