intelligence explosion

IBM paper says: Silver Bullets, Core Values, Emergence, and Emulation

– connectionism and neural nets
– computationalism (symbolic AI, Good Old Fashioned AI GOFAI)
– logical AI (sentences in a mathematical logical language)
– planning
– Genetic programming
– Robotics, embodied AI

Whole brain emulation
– Uploading

Human-machine interfaces


Biological (eg embryo selection, gene hacking)

Game AIs, worlds getting more and more rich
