Quantum machine learning techniques are likely to have far-reaching effects on many of the technologies we have become accustomed to.
Being weak and fragile, it stands to reason that sending AIs to do the looking for us saves both time and blind hope.
The inflection point at which computers, ‘thinking machines’ and AI may become infinitely powerful is no more than 20–25 years away.
Humans are not an end, but a beginning. They need not fear imaginary gods, but need instead to create minds more powerful than the gods.
Counter intuitively, the primary obstacles are not technical. Rather it is government inaction, in both funding and regulation.
Entrepreneurs are flocking to the final frontier, where Moore’s Law has unleashed massive, enduring opportunities.
One thing we don’t have to worry about is the fevered warnings of utopians and dystopians about AI making humans obsolete.
Governments must proactively seize the opportunity that the material wealth of AI will grant us, and use it to reconstruct our economies.
Major theoretical breakthroughs in AI have finally yielded practical applications that are poised to change our lives.
We are going to have to start thinking about how to minimize the looming A.I.-fueled gap between the haves and the have-nots.
