Two Minute Papers: Artificial Superintelligence [Audio only] | Two Minute Papers #29

Humanity is getting closer and closer to creating human-level intelligence. The question nowadays is not if it will happen, but when it will be happen. Through recursive self-improvement, machine intelligence may quickly surpass the level of humans, creating an artificial superintelligent entity. The intelligence of such entity is so unfathomable, that we cannot even wrap our head around what it would be capable of, just as ants cannot grasp the concept of radio waves.

Elon Musk compares creating an artificial superintelligence to “summoning the demon”, and he offered 10 million dollars to research a safe way to develop this technology.
