Transcendence

šFor 130,000 years, our capacity to reason has remained unchanged. The combined intellect of the neuroscientists, mathematicians and… hackers… in this auditorium pales in comparison to the most basic A.I.

šOnce online, a sentient machine will quickly overcome the limits of biology. And in a short time, its analytic power will become greater than the collective intelligence of every person born in the history of the world.

šSo imagine such an entity with a full range of human emotion. Even self-awareness.

šSome scientists refer to this as “the Singularity.” I call it “Transcendence.“

-Dr. Will Caster

Transcendence(2014 film)

Transcendence ? What is this?

…….Exact Expression when we repeated dialogues of transcendence movie in our presentation just to give scope of AI. Actually our presentation started with this dialogue. Everybody was like ……. whaaaaaaaat?

  So Transcendence is existence or experience beyond normal or physical level.

Lines just after this dialogues were “The path of building such an AI or super intelligence require us to unlock the most fundamental secrets of the universe like, what is the nature of consciousness? is there a soul? if so where does it reside?”

Everybody was again ….what the hell man?

I think our professors should be crazy about such things.Okay lets leave that thing.

Artificial intelligence (AI) two words explain everything!

Who do you call intelligent? one who digs up databases and gives you data or the one who thinks and gives you responses. I will go with second one for an AI, coz the first one is simply… machine.

Why Dr. caster mentioned consciousness in movie? Because we just can’t create conscious machine if we don’t know what that thing is!(According to some)

But an experiment of dumbing pill performed in NY lab show us how a machine can be self aware.(If you don’t know what that sweet experiment was Google ‘nao robots experiment NY’) Hint: Dumbing pill was just a push of button.

Now as we know that a robot can be self aware we can be so sure that in a few decades we will have an entity with full range of human emotions. While some scientists will say that this is singularity, We are so sure that it will be definitely “Transcendence” !

Thank You!
