Sauver le symbole by Marc Roux

Nous pouvons nous accorder avec certains critiques du transhumanisme pour dire que la convergence NBIC met en question notre rapport au langage et aux symboles. Or, il est probable qu’ils contribuent à ce qui fait émerger l’humain. Une pensée transhumaniste peut-elle relever ce défi ? Le symbolisme s’évanouira-t-il dans nos machines computationnelles ?

Why we should create artificial offspring: meaning and the collective afterlife Science and Engineering Ethics

That’s the title of a new article I have coming out. It argues that the creation of artificial offspring could add meaning to our lives and that it might consequently be worth committing to the project of doing so. It’s going to be published in the journal Science and Engineering Ethics. The official version will be out in a few weeks. In the meantime, you can read the abstract below and download a pre-publication version at the links provided.

Non, l’Intelligence Artificielle n’est pas « purement logique » by Alexandre Maurer

Dans les conférences et débats autour sur l’Intelligence Artificielle (IA), il y a une affirmation qui revient souvent :

« L’intelligence artificielle est fondamentalement différente de l’intelligence humaine, car elle est purement logico-mathématique, alors que l’intelligence humaine est faite d’intuition, d’imagination, etc. »

Informatica Journal - Call for Special Issue on Superintelligence Informatica Journal

Since the inception of the field of artificial intelligence, a prominent goal has been to create computer systems that would reason as capably as humans across a wide range of fields. Over the last decade, this goal has been brought closer to reality. Machine learning systems have come to excel in many signal processing tasks and have achieved superhuman performance in learning tasks including the games of Go and Heads-up Poker. More broadly, we have seen large changes in every pore of our society. This remarkable progress raises the questio...

Robot Rights: Intelligent Machines (Panel Discussion) by John Danaher

I participated in a debate/panel discussion about robot rights at the Science Gallery (Trinity, Dublin) on the 29th March 2017. A video from the event is above. Here’s the description from the organisers:

Propriété intellectuelle du vivant, brevets et longévité pour tous by Hadrian Pourbahman

Beaucoup se représentent la propriété intellectuelle sous la forme d’une taxe : taxe sur la copie privée, sur les droits d’auteur… Mais en réalité, cette notion, dont l’origine remonte au XVème siècle, s’est peu à peu immiscée dans tous les aspects de notre société, y compris lorsque que l’on raisonne en terme de droit du vivant et de longévité.

How to Plug the Robot Responsibility Gap by John Danaher

iller robots. You have probably heard about them. You may also have heard that there is a campaign to stop them. One of the main arguments that proponents of the campaign make is that they will create responsibility gaps in military operations. The problem is twofold: (i) the robots themselves will not be proper subjects of responsibility ascriptions; and (ii) as they gain autonomy, there is more separation between what they do and the acts of the commanding officers or developers who allowed their use, and so less ground for holding these p...

Facing a future of technologic wonders: Artificial Intelligence by David Brin

Don’t be demoralized; we’ve faced waves of anti-science mania before. Today, let’s assume we decide to resume being a boldly confident, ever-ambitious, scientific and technological civilization, in which children believe they can be better than their parents… but parents make that goal hard to achieve, in the best way, because we’re improving too!

IEET Affiliate Scholar John Danaher on TED Future of Sex

Danaher, an academic based at the National University of Ireland, Galway, laid out his argument regarding the uncertain future regarding sex robots and their consequences at TEDxWHU last month in a 17-minute talk called “Symbols and Consequences in the Sex Robot Debate.”
