Artificial intelligence I pursue
Tell me what your definition of artificial intelligence is.
What’s your definition of A.I.?
Something that completely replicates, and even surpasses, all the human capabilities? Something vastly superior than the human mental and physical capabilities?
No, such a technology doesn’t exist. I don’t think A.I. that will be better than human in every aspect will ever exist, because to be human and have the human capabilities, you need a biological human body.
For example, I don’t expect A.I. to be self-serving, sexual, and procreative like humans.
I talk more about this on my YouTube channel and podcast.
I don’t think A.I. will ever be creative like humans, because it lacks the biological human body. To create something like humans, you need to feel, think, and have desires like humans, which A.I. can never do.
I think believing in and pursuing a technology that will surpass humans in being human is juvenile and foolish, because it doesn’t consider the physical reality, and the biological design and capabilities of the human body.
The A.I. that I envision and pursue is one that replicates some portion of the human information processing, planning, task execution, and language capabilities.
I expect A.I. to be a subset of the human capabilities, not a superset. I expect AI to be dumb, limited, and unable to operate without a human.
But I do think A.I. and robots can and will become capable enough to do the mechanical mental and manual tasks they can’t do now. That’s what I’m after: machines that can perform more complex mechanical mental and manual tasks, machines that can understand and answer simple, factual questions better. My conclusion is that human creativity, taste, judgment, and caring will always have to be provided by humans.
Will AI be able to understand and create mathematics and computer code in the future? Maybe. But I think AI will always lack human aspects and capabilities, since it doesn’t have the human body. Acquiring and creating knowledge requires sensing, experiencing, and complex data processing; A.I. will never be able to acquire and create knowledge like humans, since it lacks the human body.
In my view, the much hyped A.I. that will surpass humans in every aspect, and possess the intelligence vastly superior than the human intelligence, is a marketing tool for getting attention, that in reality cannot be. A.I. runs on physical hardware: in reality, every piece of hardware has a physical limit, and A.I., no matter how advanced it becomes, can never be free from the fundamental physical limits. A system, the human body included, is always constrained by the physical limits and reality. No matter how advanced AI becomes, it cannot think and create instantaneously, because of the fundamental physical limits; the process of knowledge development and technological inventions will always take time, because that’s how the physical world is fundamentally designed.
I don’t believe in the AI that will be more intelligent than humans, because to think and experience like a human, you need a human body, which AI lacks: I believe in AI that will be advanced enough to be more useful to humans.
I don’t believe in the AI that can do what humans cannot do. I do think that AI will be able to do some mechanical tasks more and faster than humans.
No need to try to create a super-intelligent machine species with self-serving will that will take over humanity.
My approach is improving humans via biotech, and advancing AI and robotics for doing more useful mechanical mental and manual tasks for humans.
Humans already possess self-preservation, self-service, self-replication, and self-expansion capabilities. I pursue replicating a portion of the human intelligence in machines that will help humans to pursue more of the human self-preservation, self-service, self-replication, and self-expansion. A vague, mythical technology that will somehow be superior than humans and surpass humans in every aspect is not what I consider and pursue: I stick to operating within the bounds of fundamental physical designs, limits and realities.
In my product, titled “Transhumanism Secrets”, I specify how I look at the human intelligence, and what artificial intelligence should be. It’s available at Robocentric.com/Products. If you’re interested in my view and definition of human and artificial intelligence, you should check it out.
