Artificial Intelligence - We Had Better Start Thinking About it Now!



Hugo de Garis

Adam Ford

Posted: Jul 19, 2014


Adam Ford asks the author of The Artilect War: Cosmists Vs. Terrans: A Bitter Controversy Concerning Whether Humanity Should Build Godlike Massively Intelligent Machines, Hugo de Garis, some vital questions about the future of the intelligence explosion.

What are the stakes in building Strong Artificial Intelligence?

What do we stand to loose if the gamble does not pay off? What do we stand to gain if it does pay off?

Prof. Hugo de Garis is 64, and has lived in 7 countries (Australia, England, Holland, Belgium, Japan, US, China). He got a PhD in Artificial Life and Artificial Intelligence from Brussels University in 1991. He was formerly director of the Artificial Brain Lab (ABL) at Xiamen University in China, where he was building China’s first artificial brain, by evolving large numbers of neural net modules using supercomputers. He guest edited, with Ben Goertzel, the planet’s first special issue of an academic journal on Artificial Brains, and is currently writing a book Artificial Brains : An Evolved Neural Net Module Approach for World Scientific.
