Proactive Evolution and Transhumanism According to the Economist

“…Lately we have begun to consider the possibility that technology might change us more in a generation or two than evolution has done over millions of years.” The always excellent Economist takes on the issue of transhumanism and the Singularity in a thoughtful and well-rounded piece. I’m hard-pressed to find anything to make fun of here, even coming up with some snarky or cheeky comment is proving kinda difficult. So, just have a read! [VIA THE ECONOMIST]

Despite an Exponentially Growing Knowledge Base, Learning to be Human is Painfully Slow

We are getting better, much better… But it’s slow, and hard.  This NYT article focuses primarily on “top-down” AI projects – projects seeking to actually find a way to manually express the complexity of natural movement, behavior, and understanding in the physical world.  That seems terribly challenging.  For researchers seeking a more…  organic, or spontaneously emergent kind of AI or NBI (non-biological intelligence), see the work of Dr. Andrew Ng.  And please don’t be put off by his junior high-level site design – this really is a case of not judging the book… [VIA NEW YORK TIMES]
