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 […]

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 […]

The Conversation: Augmentation technologies are here but are people listening?

On July 24, 2012, in News, by Adam Ford

I recently was made aware of an article that popped up on The Conversation: Augmentation technologies are here but are people listening?  Very interesting article, short and to the point, worth a read. “There’s an implicit judgement at play: being the traditional purview of philosophy and genre fiction, the sociological and ontological ramifications of these […]

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 […]
