David Dowe – Turing Machines and Recursive Turing Tests

On January 3, 2013, in Abstract, News, Presenters, Summit, Video, by Adam Ford

Video of Lecture at Singularity Summit AU 2012: Abstract: The Turing Test, in its standard interpretation, has been dismissed by many as a practical intelligence test. In fact, it is questionable that the imitation game was meant by Turing himself to be used as a test for evaluating machines and measuring the progress of artificial […]

Randal Koene – Substrate-Independent Minds

On November 3, 2012, in Abstract, News, Organisers, Presenters, Summit, Video, by Adam Ford

Dr. Koene presents the concept of substrate-independent minds (SIM) and gives an outline of a feasible approach to SIM by means of whole brain emulation. Slideshare slides here http://www.carboncopies.org/singularity-summit-australia-2012 Abstract: Every aspect of modern science relies upon creating representations of things. And when we do, we pick the signals that interest us and the behavior […]

Marcus Hutter – Can Intelligence Explode?

On August 23, 2012, in Abstract, News, Presenters, Summit, Video, by Adam Ford

Title: Can Intelligence Explode? Abstract: The technological singularity refers to a hypothetical scenario in which technological advances virtually explode. The most popular scenario is the creation of super-intelligent algorithms that recursively create ever higher intelligences. After a short introduction to this intriguing potential future, I will elaborate on what it could mean for intelligence to […]

Universal Artificial Intelligence

On August 23, 2012, in Abstract, News, Summit, Video, by Adam Ford

Abstract: The approaches to Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the last century may be labelled as (a) trying to understand and copy (human) nature, (b) being based on heuristic considerations, (c) being formal but from the outset (provably) limited, (d) being (mere) frameworks that leave crucial aspects unspecified. This decade has spawned the first theory of […]

James Bourne – The machinery of the visual brain: plasticity and regeneration

On August 3, 2012, in Abstract, Presenters, Summit, Video, by Adam Ford

Video of Lecture at Singularity Summit AU 2012: The unseen side of the visual brain! The visual system helps us look at the potential for brain regeneration and repair. How the visual brain works unconsciously. Is there potential for the brain to repair itself? Endogenous neural stem/ precursor cells lead the way. James Bourne completed […]

Andrew Dun

On August 2, 2012, in Abstract, Presenters, Video, by Adam Ford

Video of Andrew Dun’s presentation “Zombie Rights”: A discussion of the rights of sentient entities. Drawing inspiration from quantum complementarity, defends a complementary notion of ontological dualism, countering zombie hypotheses. Sans zombie concerns, ethical discussions should therefore focus on assessing consciousness purely in terms of the physical-functional properties of any putatively conscious entity. Slides for […]
