Four (not entirely) easy steps to General artificial intelligence (AIS)

“For 15 years, since I first introduced the term “artificial General intelligence” (AGI), the area AI has advanced considerably. Today we have driverless cars, automated facial recognition and image capture, machine translation and expert players in the face of AI, and much more,” says Ben Goertzel, CEO decentralized network SingularityNET. Hereinafter in the first person.

However, these achievements essentially remains in the sphere of “narrow AI” — artificial intelligence, which executes the tasks, based on specifically designated data or rules, or in carefully designed learning situations. AI that can work, in General, in case of emergency and to confront the world as Autonomous agents, remain part of the future.

General artificial intelligence (AIS): what is it?

The question remains: what do we need to turn the tools of modern narrow artificial intelligence, which joins the business and society, in the same General artificial intelligence, a dream which futurists and science fiction writers?

Despite the huge diversity of perspectives and lack of lack of technical and conceptual ideas on the way to the OII, among the experts there is nothing like an agreement on this issue.

The varied landscape of proto-AIS

For example, the main founder of Deep Mind of Demis, Hassabis long been a fan of relatively strongly brain inspired approaches to AIS and continues to publish work in this direction. On the other hand, the OpenCog project-oriented AIS, a co-founder which I began in 2008, uses less brain-oriented approach – it includes neural networks, thus powerfully drawing on symbolic and logical representation and probabilistic insights, as well as the evolutionary training program.

What I’m getting at, it’s the fact that once we have several working approaches to manned flight – the planes, helicopters, rockets, etc., can be just as much work approaches to AIS, some of which are largely inspired by biology than others. And, like the Wright brothers, today’s pioneers, they are guided largely by experimentation and intuition, partly because we don’t know yet useful theoretical laws of General intelligence to guide the engineering approach to AIS movement theories; theories, they evolve organically as you practice.

Four (not entirely) easy steps to the AIS

I believe that these four steps are, in principle, attainable for the rest of my life, maybe even in the next 5-10 years. Over each of these steps employs a team of the smartest people in the world, including but in no case not limited to my own teams in SingularityNET, HansonRobotics and OpenCog.

The good news is that we do not need radically new, better hardware, and radically different algorithms or sensors or actuators. We just need to use our computers and algorithms are more reasonable, performing the following steps.

#1. To make cognitive synergy practical

Today we have many powerful algorithms AI, but we don’t use them together in a rather complicated way, so we lose a lot of synergetic intelligence that could emerge from a conscientious of their use. Conversely, the various components of the human brain are configured to work together with interesting feedback and interaction. We need to create a system that will provide a rich and full coordination between the different agents AI at different levels in a single, complex, adaptive network of artificial intelligence.

In the OpenCog architecture, for example, we are trying to implement this by creating different algorithms for learning and reasoning, working together Atomspace Hypergraph that allows you to create hybrid networks of symbolic and podsolnyh segments. Our engine probabilistic logic that processes facts and beliefs, our engine of evolutionary learning program that handles practical knowledge, our deep neural networks that process the perception – they all work together, updating one set of nodes and links of the hypergraph.

On another level, the web AI on the blockchain SingularityNET, we are working on cognitive synergy, allowing different agents AI use different internal algorithms to query each other and exchange information and results. The idea is that a network of agents AI, using a special token for exchange of values can create a common cognitive economy of the minds with intellect of the highest level, which is beyond the intelligence of individual agents. It is a modern implementation of the idea of AI pioneer Marvin Minsky of intelligence as a “society of minds” on the blockchain.

#2. To connect character and positvely AI

I believe that they can most effectively be achieved by the combination of algorithms that use low-level intelligence, such as perception and movement (e.g. deep neural networks), with algorithms that are used to abstract high-level (logical engine).

Deep neural networks have achieved remarkable success in recent years in the treatment of various types of data including images, video, audio, and, to a lesser extent, text. However, it becomes obvious that the immediate architecture of the networks is not very well treated with abstract knowledge.

My own intuition tells me that the shortest way to they will be to use deep neural networks where they are most suited, and make them a hybrid, to give more like methods in AI logical systems, so they can handle the more advanced aspects of humanoid consciousness.

#3. The architecture of the whole organism

People– not only the consciousness of the mind but also the body, the body, therefore, the achievement of human-level AIS will require the inclusion of AI systems in a physical system that can interact with the everyday human world in subtle moments.

“The architecture of the whole organism” (WHOA!) – a lovely phrase, represented by my colleague in the field of robotics David Hanson. Currently we are working with the wonderful robotic creation, “Sofia”, software which I translated into a platform for experimentation with artificial intelligence Open Cog and SingularityNET.

General intelligence requires humanoid body, and the body does not require. However, if we want to create the AIS, which, in particular, shows a human-like knowledge and can understand people, that they would need to have a unique combination of cognition, emotion, socialization, perception and movement, which characterizes human reality. Obviously the best way for they to obtain this kind of feelings reside in the body, which will at least roughly resemble a human.

The need for architecture whole body is connected with the importance of experiential learning for the AIS. In the mind of a human child all kinds of data are mixed in complex ways, and the goals and objectives must fit within the category structure and the dynamics of the world. Even the difference between myself and others need to understand. Ultimately, they will have to hold such kind of training for myself.

Although provide the AIS data from the texts and databases are not so wrong, you need to create a system that will interact with the world, to perceive it and explore autonomously and create its own model of itself and the world. The semantics of all that she learns, therefore, will be based on her own observations. If it is to learn something abstract, like a language or mathematics, she will have to justify the semantics of these disciplines in your own life, and abstraction.

Experiential learning does not require robotics. But the robotics one-piece body provides extremely natural way beyond the modern educational processes, for example, experiential learning AI.

#4. Scalable meta-learning

They must not only learn but also “learn to learn”. OOI will have to apply their own algorithms for reasoning and learning recursively to itself, to automatically improve their own functionality.

Ultimately, the ability to apply learning to improve learning must allow AIS to move far beyond human capabilities. Currently, meta-learning remains difficult, but critical task. In SingularityNET, for example, we start to use OpenCog artificial intelligence for pattern recognition in personal efficiency time to improve their own performance.

In the direction of friendly AIS

If my point of view they hold, as only one of these four aspects will move beyond the current state, we get it — AIS of human level and beyond.

I find this prospect extremely exciting and a little frightening. I also know that some observers, including great men like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, expressed exactly the opposite way: more fear than admiration. I think almost everyone who is serious about the development of AIS, puts a lot of effort to mitigate the associated risks.

One of the conclusions to which I came in the course of my work on AI and robotics, is the following: if we want our AIS could absorb and understand human culture and value, the best approach will be to include these AIS in social and emotional contexts with people. I feel that we are doing the right thing in our work with “Sofia” at the Hanson Robotics; in recent experiments, we used “Sophia” as a guide for meditation.

In the last few years I also became interested in the work to ensure that AI has evolved to become egalitarian and distributed throughout the economy in the world, and not settled in large corporations or military governments. Simply put, I would prefer that the supermind has become a friendly, loving AI, not a robot-killer advertising engine or hedge Fund AI. With this motivation I started the project SilgularityNET— to use the AI and the blockchain together and create an open market where anyone on the planet could use the world’s most powerful AI in any order. If they be born of the “economy of consciousnesses” of this nature, he is most likely to have appropriate ethical and inclusive thinking.

We go to unknown territory, not just intellectually and technologically but also socially and philosophically. Let’s do our best to the next stage of our collective journey proceeded wisely and cooperatively, and reasonably exciting.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
