  • Can You Change The Lives of 1 Billion People? - Peter Diamandis - Singularity

    How would you improve the lives of 1 billion people? Peter Diamndis believes the world's biggest challenges are its biggest opportunities. In 2007 he realized there was no place on earth that allowed the brightest minds to study technologies that grow exponentially. So he founded Singularity University where students dive deep into computational systems, synthetic biology, nano-materials & digital medicine all at once. As Diamandis says, "It's a great time to be alive."

    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 m...

In one day they had a heat map of trouble zones. In 2010 three NASA scientists wanted to launch smart satellites that didn’t cost hundreds of millions each. They built a new generation of inexpensive satellites using mobile phone technology and now are a major satellite data provider. Nonprofits use their data to protect fisheries and forests.

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.

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.

They don’t always accurately represent reality. Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity is a more complete theory of gravity. So does using the General Theory of Relativity eliminate the singularity? No. Not only does it concur with Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation but it also reveals a second singularity, not at the center of the black hole but at the event horizon.

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.

Convergence Lessons from Silicon Valley In 2015, UNICEF wanted to know if teachers in Liberia were abusing their positions and forcing students to trade sex for grades. They could have done a complex and expensive study, but instead, they simply asked every student “U-Reporter” in the country if this was a problem in their school. In one day they had a heat map of trouble zones. In 2010 three NASA scientists wanted to launch smart satellites that didn’t cost hundreds of millions each. They built a new generation of inexpensive satellites using mobile phone technology and now are a major satellite data provider. Nonprofits use their data to protect fisheries and forests. This new mindset of problem-solving -- based on rapidly changing technology and interdisciplinary thinking -- lets small teams accomplish large-scale results and change the world. We sit at the cusp of addressing the Sustainable Development Goals in ways experts couldn’t predict, in part through emulating the secrets that led to Silicon Valley becoming the world’s capital of technology. In this talk, you’ll see examples of this taking place, learn patterns that differentiate 20th from 21st-century mindsets, and apply these themes to the discussion of a new grand challenge, the “economic climate change” which may occur as technology displaces jobs. Kathryn Myronuk SYNTHESIS & CONVERGENCE FACULTY LEAD SINGULARITY UNIVERSITY Named one of CNN’s Top 7 Tech Heroes to Watch in 2015, Kathryn Myronuk is an expert on accelerating technologies and how they empower teams to create world-changing ideas. A founding team member, staff, and then faculty at Singularity University, she's worked closely with the international, interdisciplinary and highly innovative participants and teams in SU's flagship Global Solutions Programs. She's also led SU’s Synthesis and Convergence curriculum track. Her areas of interest include the value of synthesis, the power of the beginner and effective interdisciplinary teams, and the complex factors affecting the future of jobs. Her research was featured in Ray Kurzweil's The Singularity is Near (2005) and Peter Diamandis & Steven Kotler's Abundance (2012).

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!"

http://www.singularityweblog.com/singularity-james-barrat-our-final-invention/ For 20 years James Barrat has created documentary films for National Geographic, the BBC, Discovery Channel, History Channel and public television. In 2000, during the course of his career as a film-maker, James interviewed Ray Kurzweil and Arthur C. Clarke. The latter interview not only transformed entirely Barrat's views on artificial intelligence, but also made him write a book on the technological singularity called Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era. I read an advance copy of Our Final Invention and it is by far the most thoroughly researched and comprehensive anti-The Singularity is Near book that I have read so far. And so I couldn't help it but invite James on Singularity 1 on 1 so that we can discuss the reasons for his abrupt change of mind and consequent fear or the singularity. During our 70 minute conversation with Barrat we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: his work as a documentary film-maker who takes interesting and complicated subjects and makes them simple to understand; why writing was his first love and how he got interested in the technological singularity; how his initial optimism about AI turned into pessimism; the thesis of Our Final Invention; why he sees artificial intelligence more like ballistic missiles rather than video games; why true intelligence is inherently unpredictable "black box"; how we can study AI before we can actually create it; hard vs slow take-off scenarios; the positive bias in the singularity community; our current chances of survival and what we should do...

https://www.singularityweblog.com/miguel-nicolelis-and-ronald-cicurel/ The idea that man is a machine is an old one. And since the brain is a physical part of that machine it is often presumed that it can necessarily be simulated on a digital computer. But very little scientific scrutiny has been given on that presumption. The Relativistic Brain is a new book by Miguel Nicolelis and Ronald Cicurel where they address precisely that question: Can a digital machine simulate the human brain? the Relativistic BrainIn their book, Nicolelis and Cicurel provide a variety of neurophysiological, evolutionary, mathematical and computational arguments to conclude that “the brain is relativistic and cannot be simulated by a Turing Machine.” And so I thought that we had all the best ingredients for a fantastic Singularity 1on1 podcast episode. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did for I only managed to ask about half of my questions and plan to do a follow up as soon as I can. During our 90 min conversation with Miguel Nicolelis and Ronald Cicurel we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: their interesting backgrounds in neuroscience and mathematics, brain-machine-interface [BMI] and the Blue Brain Project; neuroplasticity and Miguel’s Walk Again Project; the first Brain-to-Brain communication; the Relativistic Brain Theory [RBT] and why it cannot be simulated on a Turing Machine; the distinction between mechanism and organism; computable vs non-computable [Gödelian] information; their 23 scientific predictions as a way to falsify RBT; computationalism, Plato’s Cave and the mathematical arguments against simulating the brain; Stephen Jay Gould’s “tape of evolution argument”; the collapse of the Human Brain Project; The Penrose-Hameroff Quantum Theory of Consciousness
