Do you have a favorite among the Top Ten Reasons We Should Fear Singularity? The present writer wonders if movement Ray Kurzweil popularized with book, “The Singularity is Near,” is just another cover for depriving you of freedom? Artificial Intelligence (AI) leaves mankind in dust and decision made to relinquish controls to machines with super artilects (artificial intellects). This is topic of discussion in super geek program Singularity 1 on 1, an interview with Hugo de Garis. Program host Socrates discusses with guest de Garis, his book, “The Artilect War.” The discussion centers on what future of AI may look like and your prospects, if you choose to be a “Terran,” where humans retain control or a “Cosmist,” willing to venture into intellectual frontier of hybridization, transhumanism, etc.. De Garis believes Cosmists will prevail with Socrates less convinced! It’s undeniably an interesting program in questionable territory! The present writer finds “economic collapse” a favorite reason to fear Singularity – if only we could blame machines for lousy economy! Thanks goes to stevequayle.com for the link!
