We live in an era of self driving cars, autonomous drones, deep learning algorithms, computers that beat humans at chess and go, and so on. So it’s natural to ask, will artificial superintelligence replace humans, take our jobs, and destroy human civilization? Or will AI just become tools like regular computers. AI researcher Max Tegmark helps explain the myths and facts about superintelligence, the impending machine takeover, etc.

1:00 It is a stretch to say humans process information better than earthworms. I bet earthworms are much better at efficiently processing the information needed to tunnel than humans would. Intelligence isn't some ordinal scale from cat to octopus to human and beyond nor is it an iceberg.

Intelligence is being good at a related group of tasks. Good at math, you have mathematical intelligence. Good at building and maintaining relationships then you have social intelligence. Intelligence isn't having goals, that's something different.

Information process does depend on the underlying physics. What that physics is makes a difference. The physics of biological intelligence is very different from the physics of computer intelligence, we shouldn't expect them to produce the same sort of phenomena.

Computers don't have goals because they are not intelligent enough, they don't have goals because of the type of thing they are. The worry isn't that computers will have different goals than ours, the worry is the people who build the A.I. will have different goals than ours or the A.I. will fail to achieve the goals it was engineered for.

I like Max Tegmark but sometimes he gets lots in his metaphors. Intelligence isn't an iceberg, it's not even like an iceberg.

Superintelligent artificial intelligence?
The name doesn't add up.

Dar de ce credeti ce ne-ar semana in vreun fel? Pot fi o chestiune emergenta, care la final sa nu aiba neaparat ceva uman in ea. Suma partilor nu este dpdv filozofic egala cu intregul. Sau poate este.

Would it be slavery to force sentient machines to do labor for us?

the fear is not really with AI but people using or aligning the AI goal with their rotten selfish needs, money money money.

This video didn't clear up anything, and it certainly did not dispel any myths. It just took "superintelligent AI" as a fact and rolled with it. There currently does not exist a single machine with any real form of "intelligence", let alone comparable to a human being. It's like saying an abacus is "good at math" because if you line up the dots on it correctly, you can perform calculations with it.

We have yet to figure out how and why human intelligence works. Why do we suddenly think we can start comparing it to computers?

WRONG, Ai will suppress or eliminate Humanity because we are a threat ,or an obstacle in the way of reaching their goals.
But the good news is super-intelligent and capable AI is still far in the future not 30 more likely 100 years from now

The real (let me emphasise the word real) problem is not whether we could get AI to align to our goal, the real problem is what is humanity's own goal. If humanity itself is destructive then should AI be aligned to us, by predication AI is destructive. If we are prone to make poor judgements resulting in catastrophe then AI will do the same. It is not a question that lies on the ultimate nature of AI (or humanity) but rather what could possibly happen.
My view is that, by only viewing humanity as a progression of intelligence, we are already endangering ourselves.

There is no such thing as AI...and there will never be true AI.... computer programs can never do what it is not on its field of operation. TRUE AI would have be start out being one thing like a program to design to run your home and then upon itself with no other coding via humans, "decide" to learn about cancer and have a goal of finding a cure.
