:yahoo: "We Have SUMMIT !"

08June18

Thanks to lBM, Nvidia and Oak Ridge

Intro: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summit_(supercomputer) 

Article w/ 3 minute video: https://www.cnet.com/news/ibms-world-class-summit-supercomputer-gooses-speed-with-ai-abilities/  A section on Super-Computing Meets Al, which needs integration.

ln the Nightly Business Report  - nbr.com - Fri.08Jun18 report, lBM-CEO Ginni Rometty said -in paraphrase- this is another advance in computer supported medical diagnostics.

And the US once again has the faster super-computer.

I suppose it's no different from an illustrated book or animated video, but it just feels too strange. I guess as long as nobody claims that the automaton is actually praying, it's alright, but I'm sure many people will object to this. 

No intelligence is needed to go through the motions of prayer and recite a recording, but that isn't prayer.

Will you want Al as your doctor?

You're right.  It's definitely way more than that!

Personally, l do not like machines doing my thinking for me. l sure as heck do not want to talk to one.

I agree, but it's going to happen. I don't even like my car "thinking". (Stupid stinking "luxury" car!) I drive without GPS as much as I can, I look things up in books, and I see absolutely no need to let some AI decide where I should go, what I should eat, or what I should do. But I'm not typical, apparently. Typical people don't like to think and want things to be easy.

Dis-assembly of E-Waste with Al; Clip on Robotics programming:

https://www.dw.com/en/top-stories/business/s-1431  The video near the bottom. Start at 7:30 

For a 2016 primer: https://waste-management-world.com/a/video-first-e-waste-recycling-facility-n-hong-kong-under-constructions 

What l found most interesting in the video is at the beginning where AI is used to take E-Waste apart.

This author claims that we are already becoming "transhuman".

Do You Want to Be a Cyborg?

A while back, tech-businessman Elon Musk claimed that the only way for humanity to survive the ascent of AI is to become a part of it. 

Are we using technology to "evolve" into something new?

After this video, there are two interesting questions.

Can the interviewing Al be hacked?

Another stated he would try "to make friends with" the Al lnterviewer before the interview.

What do you think about this? 

I don’t think AI can ever “feel emotions” the way we do.

@Ejaz Your link above is blocked by security. What does it say?

  • Material View of Consciousness: Some thinkers have posited the theory of emergence, which is the idea that if you hook up enough non-sentient components (neurons, microchips) then consciousness will appear. Simply put, they believe that out of unconscious complexity arises consciousness. In humans, for instance, consciousness would arise from physical states and the biological processes in our brains . Those who believe in the theory of emergence aim to equate mental phenomena with operations of the brain and to explain them all in scientific terms. This project is often called ‘cognitive science’. However, Sam Harris has argued that the idea of emergence does not really solve the hard problem of consciousness but acts as a “restatement of a miracle” akin to the Big Bang Theory —with emergence something is still posited to arise out of nothing in the great traverse from unconsciousness to consciousness.
  • Quantum Theory of Consciousness: Based on the most profound theories from quantum physics, this theory stipulates that consciousness and the physical world are complementary aspects of the same reality. When a person observes the physical world, that person’s conscious interaction causes discernible change. Schrodinger’s Cat is the famous example from Quantum Mechanics that exemplifies this and those familiar with the Eastern philosophies of non-dualism may intuitively understand this theory.
  • Consciousness as Reflexivity: The first level of consciousness is sub-consciousness, which is where the majority of human intelligence lies and the subconscious powers our ability to make decisions like spot a face. Some AI, such as Google’s face recognition software, can already do this. However, the more critical component of consciousness is the ability to maintain a wide range of thoughts. These thoughts are accessible to other parts of the brain, and it’s this ability to access thoughts simultaneously that makes long term planning possible and gives us the qualitative sensation of consciousness. Consciousness is therefore presented as a sort of meta-cognition involving higher-order thought processes and an awareness of one’s own thought processes. Our ability to maintain a wide range of thoughts broadens our temporal window of the world and comes into play when we need to maintain sensory information over a few moments.

The Emergent Theory of Consciousness

Viewing consciousness through any of these lenses suggests that AI could become conscious

@Ejaz  A one time reading tells me this is 'garbage'. The basic observation for this pronouncement is that there are way too many introduced indices -some mutually excluding- thrown into a mix for one hypothesis.

Secondly, a conscientiousness is a self awareness. A machine can be made self-aware by sensors and programming --which were itemized by the science writer lssac Asimov in the 1940s --the Three Laws for Robots, No.3 Protect ltself -ltself being its physical form.

For example: lf a robot is programmed not to allow itself to be touched -because fingerprints will lead to corrosion of its parts or surfaces- it will move away or defend itself to avoid being touched.

Easy.
