Dr. Koene presents the concept of substrate-independent minds (SIM) and gives an outline of a feasible approach to SIM by means of whole brain emulation. 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 […]
This talk covers the motivation for human technological augmentation and reasons to go beyond biological life extension. Slideshare online here Video of Talk: 1. Biological Life-Extension is Not Enough Randal A. Koene Carboncopies.org 2. PERSONAL 3. No one wants to live longer just to live longer. Motivation informs Method. 4. Having an Objective, a Goal, […]
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? […]
Video of Lecture at Singularity Summit AU 2012: The unseen side of the visual brain! The visual system helps us look at the potential for brain regeneration and repair. How the visual brain works unconsciously. Is there potential for the brain to repair itself? Endogenous neural stem/ precursor cells lead the way. James Bourne completed […]
“Humans evolved through natural selection to be well-adapted to a specific environment and specific challenges. The challenges are changing and will change more drastically as time goes on. To meet those challenges, we need to be more adaptable, while preserving that which we ultimately care the most about – what we call “being”, which is […]
Twenty Years of the Science of Consciousness: Lessons from a nascent science Abstract The mainstream empirical science of consciousness is now two decades old. What has been learned? What are its prospects for the next two decades? We now have a small, stable terminology and an embryonic education system. Twenty years has also delivered what […]
