The Singularity & Prediction – Can there be an Intelligence Explosion? – Interview with Marcus Hutter
Can there be an Intelligence Explosion? Can Intelligence Explode?
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. What could it mean for intelligence to explode?
We need to provide more careful treatment of what intelligence actually is, separate speed from intelligence explosion, compare what super-intelligent participants and classical human observers might experience and do, discuss immediate implications for the diversity and value of life, consider possible bounds on intelligence, and contemplate intelligences right at the singularity.
