The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains. If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become very powerful. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on us humans than on the gorillas themselves, so the fate of our species then would come to depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one advantage: we get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed AI or otherwise to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation? To get closer to an answer to this question, we must make our way through a fascinating landscape of topics and considerations. Read the book and learn about oracles, genies, singletons; about boxing methods, tripwires, and mind crime; about humanity's cosmic endowment and differential technological development; indirect normativity, instrumental convergence, whole brain emulation and technology couplings; Malthusian economics and dystopian evolution; artificial intelligence, and biological cognitive enhancement, and collective intelligence.

A day does not go by without a news article reporting some amazing breakthrough in artificial intelligence (AI). Many philosophers, futurists, and AI researchers have conjectured that human-level AI will be developed in the next 20 to 200 years. If these predictions are correct, it raises new and sinister issues related to our future in the age of intelligent machines. Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach directly addresses these issues and consolidates research aimed at making sure that emerging superintelligence is beneficial to humanity. While specific predictions regarding the consequences of superintelligent AI vary from potential economic hardship to the complete extinction of humankind, many researchers agree that the issue is of utmost importance and needs to be seriously addressed. Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach discusses key topics such as: AI-Completeness theory and how it can be used to see if an artificial intelligent agent has attained human level intelligence Methods for safeguarding the invention of a superintelligent system that could theoretically be worth trillions of dollars Self-improving AI systems: definition, types, and limits The science of AI safety engineering, including machine ethics and robot rights Solutions for ensuring safe and secure confinement of superintelligent systems The future of superintelligence and why long-term prospects for humanity to remain as the dominant species on Earth are not great Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach is designed to become a foundational text for the new science of AI safety engineering. AI researchers and students, computer security researchers, futurists, and philosophers should find this an invaluable resource.
Artificial Superintelligence Concerns those who believe in a fundamental (causal) theory of everything. Combining the top most categories of reality, the idea of pure intelligence, the major constructs and facts of science and mathematics, the author proposes a theory of powerfully intelligent machines superior to human minds.

Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device Inside your cranium is the thing that allows you to read, your brain. Animals have other abilities like knifelike claws and powerful muscles. But our brain has let us create a system for verbal communication, science, electronics, and intimate public arrangement. Each generation has done better and progressed farther than the previous generation.We have the dominance, because we can build the things. We could build a superintelligence that could safeguard human values. But we'd only get one chance, because if the superintelligence became unfriendly, getting rid of it or changing it would be next to impossible.It seems possible that sometime soon there could be an artificial intelligence advancement. And a couple chapters of this book are devoted to possible pathways to that. But the majority of the book is devoted to what happens next. The powers of the superintelligence, the decisive choices available. Then how do we mold the conditions to get a survivable and favorable outcome. Towards the end we look at the big picture and how to avoid catastrophe.There may be things in this book Bostrom fails to take into account, and he may draw some wrong conclusions. There is uncertainty and it is expressed when necessary.Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn When You Download Your Copy Today * How Artificial Intelligence Works And The Way It Will Change The Future * The Reason Why It Would Be Difficult For One Organization To Dominate The Artificial Intelligence Industry * Learn How The World Needs To Work Together In Order To Create A Safe And Responsible Form Of Artificial Intelligence Download Your Copy Today!

Imagine what an astonishing effect could happen if we combined profound human natural creativity with computers' numerical and logical capabilities. Probably, individuals who will use this technology will immensely benefit from it. But how can we do this? In this book, the author puts forward the hypothesis that natural intelligence can be simulated as a generative model (more specifically a special set of generative models) that is constantly being fed into a reinforcement learning procedure. This book will cover many approaches to machine learning and the main classes of artificial neural networks and how these computational approaches can potentially lead to the creation of artificial general intelligence. In this book, you will find a quick explanation of two main methodologies for computation: classical and quantum computing, and how the principles of operation of those can be applied to building artificial intelligence. You will also learn about the fundamental limitations of computation and about the paradigms of uncertainty and unpredictability of the world. We will see why this is important for understanding the capabilities of natural and artificial intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence is nearly ubiquitous thanks to companies like Google, Facebook and Apple who have infected our daily lives with technology like AI infused natural language processing and search right in the palm of our hands. To move beyond AI to Artificial General Intelligence and then Superintelligence, we need to think far outside the AI development box to design and build human level and eventually beyond human level cognitive AI. So what does it take to build human level cognition into a machine? It takes a brand new way of thinking about artificial intelligence because today's AI systems and infrastructure will not support a true human level cognitive superintelligence, In this edition of the Superintelligence Handbook, I discuss and detail new developments in artificial general intelligence designs specifically related to artificial cognition as well as a couple of updates to some of the content in ASIH1. I also discuss new advancements in infrastructure that supports cognitive AI. The future is both uncertain and hopeful. Humanity stands on the cusp of becoming an interstellar advanced species but only if we can survive long enough to make it to the stars. We need superintelligence and cognitive systems to save us from ourselves and help us master surviving in space. As our organization works through the sale of our cognitive AI code and IP the bad news is that it is not being sold to a US investment group. The good news is that deep within the content of this book is the blueprint of our cognitive AI machine. Safely archived for future generations.Failure is not an option but it is a high probability. Good luck and don't be evil.
Current AI offerings fall far short of superintelligence, which would arguably require genius-level ideas and world-views at least as rich as our own, including, for example, high quality evaluation and representation capabilities, in addition to very powerful hardware. They also lack other important things such as consciousness and even a sense of humour.
"[C]ognitive enhancement's return on investment [...] happens to be the motivation for The Roving Mind. There is a long tradition of improving one's mental function yet only in the latter half of the 20th century have the effects risen and the investment—time, risk, effort, and capital—decreased to such an extent that certain aspects of cognitive enhancement have become a worthwhile pursuit." The Roving Mind: A Modern Approach to Cognitive Enhancement is a guide to improving human intelligence. Detailing various methods from ancient Roman mnemonic techniques to scheduled pharmaceutical substances to brain-machine interfaces, Mr. Simola has produced a convincing treatise on the timely topic of cognitive enhancement.
Our life consists in a permanent quest for a more uplifting and rich experience. We love to travel, listen to music, talk to others, and mostly create. We all love to create something, either a family, a business or an impact on society with what we do. We desire respect, recognition and appreciation. And, this is why we love to be praised, admired and receive gifts. All these things contribute to our evolution as a human being, as a species and as a spiritual being, and that’s why they all directly affect our IQ. Although others have divided our brain in IQ, EQ, and many other Qs, they are all connected. Therefore, although we may separate our brain in parts for a more specific analysis, it would be unwise and unreasonable to try to judge someone’s IQ without taking into consideration his emotions and lifestyle, because they affect our IQ, but foremost and above anything, our decisions. The way we make decisions is affected by our IQ level, and that’s why the IQ test is so important in recruitment processes. Nevertheless, we can improve our IQ by improving the way we make decisions and this is only possible with the development of thought patterns through self-surviving activities. We already know that anyone learns fast when our life depends on it, when we need a job to pay our bills and food in the table, but few know that we learn much faster when motivated with positive stimulation, such as dreams, ambitions and desires. Few people know that we can’t change unless we desire it, but such desire can’t be faked or imagined. This is why honesty is the key to radical transformations in life. When we hear about stories regarding rags to riches and how some individuals have made it out of nowhere to achieve their dreams, we’re noticing the impact that an action fueled by desire has in one’s life. And, even though some people may seem special when compared to others, they’re not as much if we notice how unmotivated most of the rest is. Most people have learned to accept what they have as a fact, and for this reason they can’t and won’t ever change their status. Their personality is directly linked to their believe system, so they also attribute their results to the character that they’ve learned to accept. This is why being a loser is a state of mind, not a condition. We are who we choose to be, literally. We’re not what we have but what we accept. So, the IQ isn’t as valid as what we accept or believe to deserve. When children receive the results of their tests in school they learn to accept that grade as a definition of who we are. Few would dare saying: “who the hell are you to judge my intelligence?” or more simply think “I don’t deserve this!”. I was one of the few children that do this. And, as such, I was ridiculed by my classmates and teachers. In fact, even Psychologists would tell me to forget higher ambitions as I wasn't, according to them, fit for college or technical jobs. My parents, based on the same conclusions, would tell me not to work so hard because I wasn't in the same level of the others but I could also get any job, including as a waiter. Being surrounded by people that reinforced a label attributed by these governmental institutions doesn't help in changing our status, and that’s why even the most brave eventually fall behind. The pressure and lack of support is just too much for one single child or teenager to help himself. So, we grow up thinking that an IQ is a representation of how much we deserve in life. It’s not, even if we were born in a family of idiots and raised without toys, surrounded by children that didn't grow up to have a brighter future. I know this as a certainty, because I had a low IQ all my life, my parents had less than 4 years of school education, some of my friends died from drug overdose or finished in jail, nobody in my neighborhood went to college, but I spent my entire life studying the topic of intelligence, and with what I have learned and applied, was able to achieve what everyone thought to be impossible. I finished college, worked as a University Professor for over 6 years, in 5 different Universities, published over 150 books and even built a career as a famous music producer. Today, my IQ is 40% higher than 20 years ago and many believe that I’m either a genius or unreal. What I am, however, is just someone that did something that experts in Psychology don’t recognize to be possible of doing. I have increased my IQ with very simple principles and in this book I will tell you why and how you can do it too.
