Coming of Age in the Singularity

A boy talks very articulately about technological advances in artificial intelligence. He is researching language and thinking about what makes an AI truly conscious. Published 2013 on vimeo.

Conceptual thought often obfuscates speech. Developing AI to replicate specific human behavioral interaction in robotics will be great for selling cars, but the real payoff will come with prolonged interplanetary travel. Robotic "entities" formed by organic crystal technology can "sleep" through extended time frames, then "awaken" to apply programed specialized knowledge through highly developed AI. These crystal beings will survive the enormous gravitational forces of the heliosphere, which will lead to colonization of comets as transport vehicles.
