My thoughts on: Superintelligence

Originally this post was to be named Artificial Intelligence: An Introduction. However, after struggling to write this post for the past 2 months I’ve realised it is a lot more than that.  Even then, 2 months is nowhere near the amount of time I would allocate to a post like this because the information is always changing and innovation is around every corner. Although procrastination has come to an end and I’ve got to start somewhere. So here we go.

Who, Where, Why, am I? (the question)

It can be extremely depressing to think of these things. They are not questions for the weak to answer. The question in itself is unbearable. Not a single person is capable of answering it. Perhaps this is why we pursue paths towards superintelligence. Despite the fact that each and every one of us is part of the human race, we all view the world from an individual perspective. With the exception of books, movies, art, any creation where we are able to see, feel and experience the perspectives of others through a specific medium. So who’s to say creating a form of intelligence capable of surpassing the collective intelligence of the entire human race would even benefit us, the human race, in any way.

I would think that we are trying to create this intelligence out of sheer curiosity. Without even pausing to consider the outcomes. If we analyze the worst problems that we are currently facing as the human race, I guarantee a superintelligence is not required to solve a single one of them.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac

    1. Hi Jan,

      Thanks so much for your feedback.
      I’ve checked out your blog as well, you’ve got a ton of great information posted I really enjoyed the posts on Bitcoin as I’ve been really interested in that topic lately. One thing I found difficult navigating through your blog was the quantity of content displayed. I found it a little overwhelming trying to pick the right post to look at. Besides that very good job I can see you’ve posted a lot more than I have!
      In terms of promotion I haven’t done much either as I’m only 17 and cannot sign up for AdSense yet. Analytics is something I’d like to get for my blog as soon as possible though. I’ve also been thinking about starting a weekly post from someone in my community on my blog, if you had something worth sharing I’d love to have it on my site and vice versa.

      Sincerely,

      Cameron
