Artificial Intelligence and The
Singularity

1

What is Intelligence?



Complex to define. Why?


What do we know as being intelligent?


Computational Procedures.


General Characteristics of the human of thinking.


Autonomy


Perception


Reasoning


Cognitive Dissonance


Theory?


Attitudes


Beliefs


Awareness of ideas


Our Conscience


Internal feelings

2

What is Artificial Intelligence?


Artificial Intelligence is a gateway towards science
and engineering of making intelligent machines or
smart computer programs.



Enables machines to understand the human intelligence.


Science of making a computer or machine perform a task that
requires human knowledge.


AI has the potential of surpassing the human intellect.

3

Singularity


Is a theory that of accelerating change, a future point in which progress
throughout history humanity may suggest faster and more define
changes in the future.




Technological Singularity



Describes a theory that there is a future point technology that takes place during a
period of accelerating change sometime after the creation of a super
-
intelligence.


An increase in the rate of technological
progress throughout history, which may
suggest faster and more profound change in the future.

4

Accelerating Change


Progress throughout history, can suggest faster and
more profound change in the future. Accelerating
Change will increase the rate:


Technological


Social


Cultural



Accelerating change, possesses its own popularity
during modern times and is closely associated with
the ideas and writings of many theorist focusing on
Technological Singularity.

5

Super
-
intelligence


Artificially enhanced human brain, a computer program or a
device that is much smarter, more creative and wiser than any
current or past existing human brain.


The uniqueness continues to enhance its own capability and intelligence.


Singularity.


Accelerating Change.



Complimenting the concept accelerating change is the super
intelligence. If it wasn’t for the theory of the super
intelligence, accelerating change would not happen.

Artificial Intelligence Machines and Software


Kernel Machines


Mathematical programming and
process prediction.


Machine Learning in Games


computers can learn to get better
at playing games.


Using heuristic search algorithms,
neural networks, genetic
algorithms, temporal and
differences.


Symantec Intelligence Updater


Smart Network Routers


For early detection of packet
-
loss,
uses the following to fight against
packet
-
loss:


Explicit congestion notification


Active queue
-
management
techniques.









Diagnostic Devices for
your car, computer, 3G
phone.


Robotics



Roomba


Medical


Laser Cutting


7

Advantages



The ability to perform extended tasks at greater
serial speeds than conscious human thought.


200 calculations per second


Capacity


24/7/365


The human brain does not physically integrate well,
externally or internally, with contemporary hardware
and software.


Singularity


Accelerated Change

Disadvantages


We loose…



The ability to analyze and modify every design level and feature.


The ability to communicate and share information


Example: abilities, concepts, memories, thoughts.


The ability to control what is and what is not learned or remembered.


The ability to create new programming, hand
-
ons
, design.


The ability to learn new information rapidly.



Makes us…


Lazy


Outsource Worthy
