Panel: Intelligence, Substrates, Computation and the Future

On August 14, 2012, in News, Panel, Summit, Video, by Adam Ford

Randal Koene, Marcus Hutter and Colin Hales will discuss the future of intelligence on different substrates, whether particular substrates won’t be amenable to computing intelligence. Is intelligence computable?  What aspects of intelligence are difficult to compute? How does the human brain compute intelligence? Are all aspects of intelligence (and consciousness) computable on any arbitrary substrates? […]

Panel: Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality – Possibilities for Navigating Mixed Reality in the Next Billion Seconds

On August 14, 2012, in News, Panel, Summit, Video, by Adam Ford

Virtual reality (VR) is a term that applies to computer-simulated environments that can simulate physical presence in places in the real world, as well as in imaginary worlds. Most current virtual reality environments are primarily visual experiences, displayed either on a computer screen or through special stereoscopic displays, but some simulations include additional sensory information, […]

David Dowe

On July 18, 2012, in Presenters, Summit, by Adam Ford

In 1997, David Dowe presented the relationship between (algorithmic) information theory and the inductive inference part of intelligence, before similar but independent work by Jose Hernandez-Orallo also in the 1990s. In the posthumous (2005) book “Statistical and Inductive Inference by Minimum Message Length” by the originator of the Minimum Message Length (MML) principle, Chris Wallace […]
