superintelligence

superintelligence

An intellect that is much smarter than the best human brain in practically every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom and social skills. The operational definition of superintelligence includes those who are viewed as intellectually gifted and savants, and in informatics as programs that have extremely intelligent search algorithms.

Superintelligence is coming and it could extinguish the human race, but there is little governments can do now to control it, philosopher and futurist Nick Bostrom said on the closing day of the sixth World Government Summit (WGS 2018) in Dubai, UAE.
Tegmark claims that only superintelligence can reengineer the universe to make enough gravity to grapple with dark energy so as to prevent the end of the universe.
The first principle sets the primary goal of AI research to be "to create not undirected intelligence, but beneficial intelligence." And the last two state: "AI systems designed to recursively self-improve or self-replicate in a manner that could lead to rapidly increasing quality or quantity must be subject to strict safety and control measures" and "Superintelligence should only be developed in the service of widely shared ethical ideals, and for the benefit of all humanity rather than one state or organization." (Tegmark 2017) These principles, though well-intended, may be insufficient in and of themselves unless AI and AGI succeed in attaining and maintaining higher levels of ethical ideals than humanity has yet achieved.
The prompt is open-ended--and students might produce an imaginative speculation of what music will sound like, the risks and rewards of artificial superintelligence, likely directions in demographics and politics, or a meditation on how the world we live in now may be changed.
The concept of superintelligence was developed only a little after the birth of the field of artificial intelligence, and it has been a source of persistent intrigue ever since.
Musk tweeted the article and wrote "On the list of people who should absolutely *not* be allowed to develop digital superintelligence..."

Neuralink serves this goal, too, because Musk is among those who believe that to build a machine smarter than yourself is, as Nick Bostrom, the author of "Superintelligence," puts it, "a basic Darwinian error." Yet, given rapid progress on artificial intelligence, and the multiple incentives for making computers even smarter, Musk sees no way of preventing that from happening.
In fact, some of the very interesting work that's being done now concerning superhumanly intelligent AI presents the possibility that it's dangerous just because humans don't know what they want (see, for example, Nick Bostrom's book Superintelligence).
However, the philosopher Nick Bostrom, in his book Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies, has argued that silicone-based machine intelligence is not only inevitable but inherently quite dangerous, whether in the context of armed conflict or not.
