Artificial Intelligence Smarter than Humans – It’s Coming
November 10, 2011
We know that technology is changing faster than ever. But did you know that the rate of technological advancement is a double exponential?
John Smart is a futurist who believe that in the near future computers will actually equal and surpass the human ability to think.
And if you really want to have your mind blown, this article will do the trick.
The article opens:
An analysis of the history of technology shows that technological change is exponential, contrary to the common-sense “intuitive linear” view. So we won’t experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century — it will be more like 20,000 years of progress (at today’s rate).
What do you think? Is it possible for computers to outsmart us? Is it even possible for a computer to build a smarter computer? Will society allow technology to get that “out of control”?
