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 […]
