Caring Robots: A step towards an AI takeover?

Recommended Posts

The next question to ask is: what came first, man or computer? When one realizes that many of the soil properties also exhibit quantum computation algorithms, it is not hard to conceive that current chip (made from sand) physics was here before man.

 

Another question is: are we being played?

 

What if "time" is actually running backwards, and we are moving towards the computer.

 

What if we are being played like a record. Just as you can fire up a DVD with a movie from 20 years ago and have a full-sensory experience as if it was happening 'now'.

If the 5 senses are not to be trusted, then what can be?

 

Our memory? Can't trust that. There goes the 'past'.

 

Nevertheless, the 'dream argument' only says that we should not fully trust our 5-senses, but we can make use of them.

So what do we use to discern? Now we are getting into fringe.

would I be correct to take that reaction to mean it's not something youve run into before?

 

I first came across it as graffiti in a univeristy lavatory....

 

its important because "grasping reality" is a big chunk of the philosophy of intelligence. (I think therefore i am). Its also well worth following up with the famous philosophers that have tackled the problem, many of whose theories were used in the matrix movies...

 

and of course, its the origin of the idea of "waking up".

About ten years ago, Time Magazine interviewed ten major computer experts about the direction and goals that industry was moving.

 

 

This would have been the November 1994 issue on The Future of Computing

One thing stood out above all other visions and opinions. All ten indicated that there was a “presence” on the Internet, and no one had a clue as to what it all meant.
How this was first observed was that search engines used at that time should have given consistent responses to the same question asked at the same time. But, they did not, and the big question was why?
Boolean Logic systems dictate that they must, or there was another “variable” involved, one yet to be identified.

 

 

Around that time we were using Altavista as preferred search engine but there were quite a few others to play with such as Infoseek and Lycos.
There was little hope of useful responses never mind consistent ones even with the same search engine used for the identical query after a time interval.
It was at this same time that NASA created the popular screen saver called CETI, to calculate possible planets around known stars.

 

 

CETI is not SETI and SETI was not used for that.

The algorithm used was a form of quantum computation math, now used by IBM to create a super computer from a network of PCs.

 

 

No it wasn't. The spectral analysis used normal Fast Fourier Transform and related transforms to analyse the power spectrum.

Known as “Big Blue,” this system only requires 357 PCs. It can duplicate a Cray super cooled computer for speed and accuracy.

 

 

IBM, the company, was known as Big Blue because the big metal mainframes were blue. See also the popular book from around the 70s Big Blue -the abuse of power. They did name their chess system Deep Blue but that was a RS/6000-based system with 30 nodes, with each node containing a 120 MHz P2SC microprocessor, enhanced with 480 special purpose VLSI chess chips. Nothing to do with any distributed system having a magic number of 357 computing nodes.
The last of the line Cray 2 was marketed as a "supercomputer" and had a liquid cooling system. Its superpower was about the same as an iPad 2.

This means that at any given time where a University has 357 screen savers (CETI) online, a supercomputer can becomes existent.

 

 

Would 358 destroy the magic?

Now, if there are 357 Universities where this happens at the same time, a type of self-organizing consciousness is postulated to form

 

 

Only in the same way that a disorganised sequence of English words are postulated to have semantic significance.

ROFL.

In the tiny, ancient world of the people they interviewed...

People who had no idea how search engines work.

 

That has leaked a little now:

https://martin.kleppmann.com/2015/05/11/please-stop-calling-databases-cp-or-ap.html

This diagram shows Alice and Bob, who are in the same room, both checking their phones to see the outcome of the 2014 football world cup final. Just after the final score is announced, Alice refreshes the page, sees the winner announced, and excitedly tells Bob about it. Bob incredulously hits reload on his own phone, but his request goes to a database replica that is lagging, and so his phone shows that the game is still ongoing.

 

If Alice and Bob had hit reload at the same time, it wouldn’t have been surprising if they had got two different query results, because they don’t know at exactly what time their respective requests were processed by the server. However, Bob knows that he hit the reload button (initiated his query) after he heard Alice exclaim the final score, and therefore he expects his query result to be at least as recent as Alice’s. The fact that he got a stale query result is a violation of linearizability.

but still not widely known or understood by the community. ->its hard work keeping up to date, especially when we live in Exponential Times:

But yes, there was a “presence” on the Internet.

 

F'ing intelligence agencies sucking up everyones data, launching attacks on everything and generally being bad netizens.

Followed shortly after by FBI raids on all my friends :(

Interesting presentation, but as an instinctive contrarian I look for things not increasing exponentially.

You might find it interesting to browse through the publications of David Bell https://www.researchgate.net/profile/David_Bell41/publications

 

Look particularly for the handling of queries against inconsistent and conflicting information. Related terms would be possibilistic logics and evidential reasoning.

 

Bell was a reviewer of Bostrum's Superintelligence and has recently completed his own book on AI and worldviews, title and publication date as yet unknown.

postscript from Dr R. A. Miller (by email)

( = as the criticisms are about my definitions used in this older article.
------------------------------------------
05-16-16
this original speculative article was written in 2001, and was based on an article 10 years earlier, found in Time Magazine. since then, terminology has evolved and become more precise.

with the development of new algorithms, even such tools as the classic Turing test needs to be revisioned. today, with Cliff High's "infobot" (using Goertzel's Ons Algebra), chatter on the internet can now be used to predict future events.

and, with the recent development of Jade 2.0 software (2015), profiling events and individuals can now accurately predict behavior even before consciousness becomes aware. this concept reminds me of the movie Minority Report.

this suggests that time itself may be driven by resolution in information, using a holographic model for the universe. older models on consciousness presume a quantum universe.

new models on cavitation processes, for example, now indicate that time itself is not what we may think it to be. emotional content seems to be what now separates a machine from a human.

a machine, for example, feels no pleasure when it wins a board game (like chess). that might suggest that emotions may be a higher form of information regarding the physical plane.

CETI, SETI, ... or something else:

 

Screensaver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A screensaver (or screen saver) is a computer program that blanks the screen or fills it with ... a useful background task, such as a virus scan or a distributed computing application (such as the SETI@home project). ... The screensaver, named scrnsave, was published in December 1983 issue of the Softalk magazine.

The Global Brain Project - A World Evolution Initiative

.

projectglobalbrain.com/

Please join us on facebook every Saturday in the Global Brain Project ....

what could be more natural than a parallel evolution in global human consciousness?

.

The original purpose and aim of this site was to jump-start the global brain before the
winter solstice in 2012
. And, to a large extent, that has happened. The Global Brain is alive and working through facebook. Over the past year and more, through weekly meditation events, the Global Brain has slowly come alive through the neural connections that facebook makes possible. There is still a long way to go but you have a part to play. Through this site you will be able to sign-up and recognise your role as a neuron in the global brain. As the number of self-aware neurons in the global brain increases it should
achieve higher and higher levels of coherence and have an increasing effect on
shaping the world as we, the citizens who live within it, would wish.

==

 

In case you think we are more crazed than we actually are, we not aiming to sign-up all or even the majority of the neurons in the global brain. We have set our sights far, far lower (though, unfortunately, not low enough to bring much realism into the picture.) Mainly because it is not necessary. Quantum physics has shown us that waveform transitions can happen when only a very small percentage of the new waveform ‘infects’ the existing one. Thinking is a powerful waveform and coherent thinking is its supercharged big brother. There is much debate about how many people thinking the same stuff at the same time it would take to transform the global brain. It has been demonstrated that just one percent can produce a transition. But that is still a hell of a lot of people. But many other figures have been postulated. Among them .1% (in the low high millions,) .01% (less than a million but still in the high hundred thousands) and even the square root of 1% (just over 8000.) Who can say? We certainly can’t. All we can do is try to get as many people to sign-up as possible and hope that we can make the change happen or, at least, help it to happen.

Define pleasure/pain.

 

computational genetic algorithms work by doing exactly that (defining pleasure/pain)....

But I'm not supposed to be talking about stuff like that in public cleartext. (apologies to Erewhon888, best I can do is explain why I went dark:http://www.moddb.com/forum/thread/darpa-plagarism)
