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 […]

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: Alan Turing – Visionary and Genuis

On August 11, 2012, in News, Panel, Summit, by Adam Ford

Of special significance this year is the centenary of Alan Turing’s birth. This panel will have focus on Alan Turing and his unique impact on the history of computing, computer science, artificial intelligence, developmental biology, and the mathematical theory of computability. Panelists include Marcus Hutter, David Dowe, and James Harland. Craig Pearce will give an […]

Panel: Technoshock! The Promise and the Peril in a World Radically Changing through Technology

On August 1, 2012, in News, Panel, Summit, Video, by Adam Ford

This panel will be the closing panel at the Singularity Summit Australia. Chair: Peter Spinks Panelists: Marcus Hutter, Randal Koene, Meredith Doig Video of Panel: What excites you about the future? What frightens you? How might the future change the way we live? And how might we change the way we live in the future? […]
