The "father of artificial intelligence" says singularity is 30 years away

#artificialintelligence

You've probably been told that the singularity is coming. It is that long-awaited point in time -- likely, a point in our very near future -- when advances in artificial intelligence lead to the creation of a machine (a technological form of life?) smarter than humans. If Ray Kurzweil is to be believed, the singularity will happen in 2045. If we throw our hats in with Louis Rosenberg, then the day will be arriving a little sooner, likely sometime in 2030. MIT's Patrick Winston would have you believe that it will likely be a little closer to Kurzweil's prediction, though he puts the date at 2040, specifically.

Father Of Artificial Intelligence: 'Singularity Is Less Than 30 Years Away'

#artificialintelligence

The father of artificial intelligence has sounded the alarm, and the clock is ticking down to the singularity. For those who haven't been following the advancements in AI, maybe now's the time, because we are approaching the point of no return.

The purpose of the conference was to exchange ideas about the creation of artificial systems with general intelligence at, and ultimately beyond, the human level. GI-09, the Second International Conference on Artificial General Intelligence, was held March 6-9 in Arlington, Virginia. Ben Goertzel chaired the conference, and Marcus Hutter and Pascal Hitzler chaired the program committee. Continuing the mission of AGI-08 (which was held March 2008 at the University of Memphis), the purpose of the conference was to provide a venue for exchange of in-depth scientific ideas and results between researchers working directly toward the original goal of the AI endeavor: the creation of artificial systems with general intelligence at the human level and ultimately beyond. The first day of the conference featured in-depth tutorials on leading AGI systems and approaches, including introductions to the SOAR, Texai, and OpenCog software, and overviews of the logic-based, reinforcement learning and program-induction approaches to AGI.
