This is our 2nd episode thinking about possible paths to superintelligence focusing on one kind of narrow AI each show. This episode is about embodiment and robots. It’s possible we never really agreed about what we were talking about and need to come back to robots.
Future ideas for this series include:
personal assistants (Siri, Alexa, etc)
search engines (or maybe those just fall under tools
social networks or other big data / working on completely different time / size scale from humans
augmentation (computer / brain interface)
0046: Paths to AGI #1: Tools
Robots learning to pick stuff up
In which we talk about Westworld, among other things.
Are people better than robots?
Human augmentation may be a way for humans to advance on par with non-biological beings (AIs), but do ethical guidelines make that less likely to happen?
