• Ed Boyden on Singularity 1 on 1: Let's Bring Engineers into Studying the Brain

    http://www.singularityweblog.com/ed-boyden/ The first time I met Prof. Ed Boyden was at last year's Global Future 2045 conference in New York. There I was highly impressed with Boyden's impressive work in neuroscience in general and optogenetics in particular, as well as the profound implications it would have on our ability to understand and manipulate the brain. And so I knew instantly I must bring him for an interview on Singularity 1 on 1. During our 1 hour conversation with Ed we cover a variety of topics such as: his interesting career path from chemistry to physics to electrical engineering and into neuroscience; the loop of understanding and why the brain is where we need to go; the importance of philosophy; optogenetics and whether the brain is a classical computer or not; the P...

    Ray Kurzweil is an inventor, thinker, and futurist famous for forecasting the pace of technology and predicting the world of tomorrow. In this video, Kurzweil suggests the blueprint for the master algorithm—or a single, general purpose learning algorithm—is hidden in the brain. The brain, according to Kurzweil, consists of repeating modules that self-organize into hierarchies that build simple patterns into complex concepts. We don’t have a complete understanding of how this process works yet, but Kurzweil believes that as we study the brain more and reverse engineer what we find, we’ll learn to write the master algorithm.

Together with British quantum physicist Sir Roger Penrose, Hameroff is the co-author of the controversial Orch OR model of consciousness.

  • Condorcet: The First Singularity Theorist by Mahendra Prasad

    While several models of a technological singularity have been created in recent years, the first person to have put forth a singularity hypothesis seems to be 18th century French mathematician/philosopher/revolutionary, Nicholas de Condorcet. While there are many versions of the hypothesis, the basic idea is that rapidly growing knowledge and technology will radically change human economic, political, social, and biological structures. Occasionally, Condorcet has been mentioned as a proto-discoverer of the hypothesis based on his rough descriptions of it in his philosophical work. What goes unmentioned is that in his math research, he actually created a mathematical model for the singularity. Much of Condorcet’s philosophy can be understood as an attempt to figure out how to live lives ben...

His work focuses on the quantitative analysis of personality traits and how a better understanding of human behavior can lead to more human technology. The study of psychometrics is of interest academically, but psyML is pursuing practical applications. The idea, according to Buckwalter, is to give people more insight about themselves so they can change their behavior. He suggested, for example, that people struggling with credit can learn to spot detrimental behaviors and triggers to improve.

One of my main themes, and I’ve developed this thesis over 30 years, is that information technology grows exponentially; the power of computers are understanding the human brain, specializes solution of brain scanning, the number of bits we move in the internet. Many different measures of information technology double every year, or every 11 months, 13 months; depending on what you’re measuring. These technologies will be a million times more powerful within 20 years. In fact, the speed of exponential growth is itself speeding up. So, in 25 years these technologies will be a billion times more powerful than they are today. And we’ve already seen that kind of progress. When I was an undergraduate we all shared computer at MIT that took up half of a building. The computer and your cellphone today is a million times cheaper and a thousand times more powerful. That’s a billion fold increase in price performance of computing since I was an undergraduate. By 2029, and I’ve been quite consistent on this date, we will have completed the reverse engineering of the human brain. And we’ve already made very good progress on that. We’ve reversed engineered a number at different regions, like the cerebellum, which is responsible for our skill formation and slices of cerebral cortex where we do our cursive thinking and the auditory cortex, the visual cortex and so on. By 2029, we’ll have reverse engineered and modeled and simulated all the regions of the brain. And that will provide us the software/algorithmic methods to simulate you know, all of the human brains capabilities including our emotional intelligence. And computers at that time will be far more powerful than the human brain. And we’ll be able to create machines that really do have subtlety and suppleness of human intelligence. And they’ll combine that power with ways in which machines are already superior to us. They can impart us all of human knowledge with the few keystrokes, it can remember billions of things accurately. They can share knowledge in electronic speeds that are million times faster than the human language. So, it will be very powerful combination.

Ray Kurzweil is an inventor, thinker, and futurist famous for forecasting the pace of technology and predicting the world of tomorrow. In this video, Kurzweil suggests the blueprint for the master algorithm—or a single, general purpose learning algorithm—is hidden in the brain. The brain, according to Kurzweil, consists of repeating modules that self-organize into hierarchies that build simple patterns into complex concepts. We don’t have a complete understanding of how this process works yet, but Kurzweil believes that as we study the brain more and reverse engineer what we find, we’ll learn to write the master algorithm.

http://www.singularityweblog.com/robin-hanson-on-singularity-1-on-1/ Robin Hanson is not just a well known economist with seminal work in prediction markets. He is also a physicist, philosopher and AI researcher. Besides being a polyglot he is also an extremely likable fellow and both of those make him very hard to argue against. Add up the fact that it's been over a decade since my study of economics and you will get a better idea as to why I struggled to keep up with him during our conversation. Well, regardless of my poor performance I have to say that enjoyed talking to Hanson very much. So I plan to bring him back for a follow up interview where we can spend more time talking exclusively about his upcoming book on the economics of brain emulations. During this Singularity 1 on 1 interview with Robin we discuss a variety of topics such as: his wide spectrum of interests such as physics, phylosophy, economics and artificial intelligence; the general lack of academic engagement with issues related to the singularity; why cheap energy will not be a panacea to our problems or even a major boost to our economy; the singularity and his definition thereof; the two major ways to Artificial Intelligence; the economics of brain emulations (what he calls Ems)...

The founder of the Yale Transhumanist Society and the coach of the debate team proposes a solution to save civilization from the danger of the so-called singularity, urging us to take the future of our evolution into our own hands and enhance human consciousness with machines. David Vincent Kimel was born in Israel and divided his childhood between Tel Aviv and New Haven. He graduated from Harvard University Summa Cum Laude in 2005 with a BA in Classics and was the top-ranked debater on the national circuit that same year. Following graduation, he worked at the POSCO steel factory in Pohang, South Korea, hiked trails in North Korea, Japan, and China, and eventually started his own business with his best friend from college: Imperial Publishing. He is now a fifth year PhD candidate in the History department, the coach of the Yale Debate Team, and the founder of the YSSST (Yale Students and Scholars for the Study of Transhumanism). He is thrilled to be joining the other speakers at this year's conference. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

http://www.singularityweblog.com/stuart-hameroff-quantum-consciousness/ Dr. Stuart Hameroff is a Professor of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona. Together with British quantum physicist Sir Roger Penrose, Hameroff is the co-author of the controversial Orch OR model of consciousness. I first met Dr. Hameroff at the recent GF2045 conference where the usually mild-mannered Ray Kurzweil went out of his way to make it abundantly clear that the Orch OR model is totally wrong. Other scientists I met there called it "speculative," "non-testable" and "unscientific". By now both Stuart and Roger must have become accustomed to such attacks, and I have developed a lot of respect for the calm but firm way they are daring to stand their ground. Furthermore, if the Orch OR model were to be correct, then, there will be profound implications on variety of fields and disciplines such as medicine, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, quantum physics and philosophy. And so I decided to bring Dr. Hameroff on Singularity 1 on 1 where we can confront the controversy head-on. During our 1 hour conversation with Stuart we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: how he got interested in studying consciousness and the definition thereof; why understanding anesthesia is the route to understanding consciousness; the hard problem of consciousness; why the brain is more than a classical computer; how Hameroff reached out to Roger Penrose after reading The Emperor's New Mind; the Orch OR model and why the vast majority of scientists are disdainful of it; the best ways of proving or disproving the Hameroff/Penrose model and the most important implications if it is indeed correct; out-of-body experiences, quantum souls, afterlife, and reincarnation; Hinduism and Buddhism; cryonics and chemical brain preservation; Stuart's upcoming paper [together with Roger Penrose] where they will review and present new evidence in support of the Orch OR theory. This is by far the highest quality, best produced and most expensive interview that I have done so far. It would have never happened without the generous support of Richard and Tatiana Sundvall. [Richard not only produced but also edited this interview] I am also very obliged to videographer Carl Geers not only for doing a great job behind the camera but also for putting up with my mercilessly caustic sense of humor for three long days. Finally, I want to thank Dr. Stuart Hameroff for welcoming a "Singularity/AI type" like me in his operating room, as well as his genuine willingness to address any and all of my tough questions on the spot, without preparation and prior approval.

http://www.singularityweblog.com/jacque-fresco-the-venus-project/ Jacque Fresco is a futurist, inventor, social engineer, visionary and technician, best known for the Venus Project. In his Future By Design documentary about Fresco's life and ideas, Emmy winning filmmaker William Gazecki called the 97-year-old Jacque "a modern day Da Vinci." Others have called him "a new Buckminster Fuller." Now, I have to admit that I really like Jacque as a person -- he just seems to have a unique combination of wisdom, life experience, sense of humor and personal humility. I also admire his multi-disciplinary accomplishments and his seemingly never-ending enthusiasm and scientific curiosity. This, however, doesn't mean that I agree with him on everything that he says or proposes, and you would see a few of those moments during our 72 minute interview. At any rate, best thing you can do is to watch the interview in full, read Jacque's book -- The Best That Money Can't Buy, and judge for yourself. During my conversation with Jacque Fresco we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: how he sees himself; scarcity and money as the root of all evil; the Venus Project; the need for unambiguous language; why he claims that most people are "unsane"; whether philosophers are bullshitters; the clash of civilizations and the nation state; education and the scientific method; the modern culture of bread and spectacles; resource based economy; Ray Kurzweil, artificial intelligence and the technological singularity; the Zeitgeist movement; Ayn Rand and objectivism; death and cryonics... My favorite quote that I will take away from this conversation with Jacque is: "Study the meaning of science and apply its methods to the social system!"

While several models of a technological singularity have been created in recent years, the first person to have put forth a singularity hypothesis seems to be 18th century French mathematician/philosopher/revolutionary, Nicholas de Condorcet. While there are many versions of the hypothesis, the basic idea is that rapidly growing knowledge and technology will radically change human economic, political, social, and biological structures. Occasionally, Condorcet has been mentioned as a proto-discoverer of the hypothesis based on his rough descriptions of it in his philosophical work. What goes unmentioned is that in his math research, he actually created a mathematical model for the singularity. Much of Condorcet’s philosophy can be understood as an attempt to figure out how to live lives beneficial to humans in a world with a singularity. But sadly, much of this is unavailable in English because many of his works have not had complete translations. I hope to elucidate Condorcet’s mathematical model of the singularity to encourage translation and study of his important contributions tackling social and ethical issues related to the singularity hypothesis. Mahendra Prasad was born in Memphis, TN. He grew up on a farm with chickens, quail, horses, goats, and sheep outside of Memphis. He is currently a PhD candidate in political science at the University of California, Berkeley.

Right now anyone with a smartphone and average 3G connection can video chat with their friends on the opposite side of planet Earth. Twenty years ago this would have been science fiction. More impressive, only a few weeks ago Google’s DeepMind team created an AI that became the world's best player of the game Go within 3 days, a game that is regarded as the most complex board game ever invented This week join us and our special guest Dr. James Hughes, founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies and Editor in Chief for the Journal of Posthuman Studies. Dr. Hughes is a Fellow of the World Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a member of Humanity+, the Neuroethics Society, the American Society of Bioethics and Humanities and the Working Group on Ethics and Technology at Yale University. He also serves on the State of Connecticut Regenerative Medicine Research Advisory Committee. You won’t want to miss this week’s discussion as we dive into topics like: * Which technologies, especially new ones, are likely to have the greatest impact on human beings and human societies in the 21st century? * What ethical issues do those technologies and their applications raise for humans, our civilization, and our world? * How much can we extrapolate from the past and how much accelerating change should we anticipate? * What sort of policy positions can be recommended to promote the best possible outcomes for individuals and societies?

J. Galen Buckwalter said the quantitative study of personality is finding new tech applications. Buckwalter developed the matching algorithm at eHarmony and is now chief technology officer at psyML. His work focuses on the quantitative analysis of personality traits and how a better understanding of human behavior can lead to more human technology. The study of psychometrics is of interest academically, but psyML is pursuing practical applications. The idea, according to Buckwalter, is to give people more insight about themselves so they can change their behavior. He suggested, for example, that people struggling with credit can learn to spot detrimental behaviors and triggers to improve. Buckwalter said he also hopes the algorithmic tools providing this behavioral mirror will lead to more empathetic, understanding machines in the future.

A colleague of mine recently shared a Snapple™ lid with me, which said “The nothingness of a black hole generates a sound in the key of B flat.” That sparked my curiosity. I did some internet digging and found an article on www.science.nasa.gov that further inspired me: “Astronomers using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have found, for the first time, sound waves from a supermassive black hole. The "note" is the deepest ever detected from any object in our Universe… In musical terms, the pitch of the sound generated by the black hole translates into the note of B flat…57 octaves lower than middle-C…this is the deepest note ever detected from an object in the Universe.” Steve Allen, an investigator with NASA, says, "The Perseus sound waves are much more than just an interesting form of black hole acoustics. These sound waves may be the key in figuring out how galaxy clusters, the largest structures in the Universe, grow." Those of us involved in choral music have always known that singing brings people together in cosmic ways. Now we know that music may also be intrinsic to the very structure of the universe! Singularity in Bb uses overtone singing over an opening B flat drone to symbolically represent the sound of the Perseus black hole and the “music of the spheres,” morphing quickly into a rhythmically-swaying, hypnotic setting of Walt Whitman’s lovely poem Gliding O’er All, accompanied by a subtle use of the hymn tune TERRA BEATA (This Is My Father’s World). I hope you enjoy it! -Timothy Michael Powell

Watch Full Documentary by Ray Kurzweil and Michio Kaku - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2TOkwjoxy4 In 1958 Stanislaw Ulam wrote about a conversation with John von Neumann who said that: “the ever accelerating progress of technology … gives the appearance of approaching some essential singularity in the history of the race beyond which human affairs, as we know them, could not continue.” Neumann’s alleged definition of the singularity was that it is the moment beyond which “technological progress will become incomprehensibly rapid and complicated.” Other related resources - https://www.singularityweblog.com/17-definitions-of-the-technological-singularity/ Technological singularity https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity The Singularity is Near https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Singularity_Is_Near There’s More to Singularity Studies Than Kurzweil http://ieet.org/index.php/IEET/print/4168 What's the technological singularity? | HowStuffWorks http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/gadgets/high-tech-gadgets/technological-singularity.htm Other Singularity Videos - Ray Kurzweil: The Coming Singularity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uIzS1uCOcE Michio Kaku on The Singularity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTPAQIvJ_1M Noam Chomsky: The Singularity is Science Fiction! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kICLG4Zg8s
