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 […]

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? […]
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? […]
