Longevity is the concept of living a vital life for a longer than normal period. Why Longevity? That’s another story… How, then?
Rational Ethics, or True Morality, is a system of principles that helps us both to discover what it means to live well, and to achieve…
The only viable interpretation of determinism implies that the future cannot in principle be determined. Ever.
Our real long-term goal is AGI – systems that can think, learn, adapt, and reason as well as, or better than, humans.
General human-level artificial intelligence, or AGI, has certain specific requirements. These cannot be met by any narrow techniques.
60 years ago the ambition was to build machines that can learn and reason like humans. Human-level AI is now possible.
We have ‘self-aware, conceptual reasoning’, or SCR for short. Future machines that have SCR will also have moral agency.
Any AGI must at a minimum possess a core set of cognitive abilities – as a simple description of human intelligence will confirm.
We actually need advanced AI to help guide us through this stage of human evolution, to help save us from ourselves.
Improving computer-based intelligence will be significantly easier and faster than trying to hack human brains.
