Artificial Intelligence Explained — In this concluding segment, physicist Louis Del Monte discusses supercomputers and artificial intelligence. Based on the rate that computer science is progressing, by the year 2029 computers will exist that can replicate the human mind, become self-aware, and be considered a life form. In time, they will be able to replicate millions of human minds, and in a sense, become a “universe.” By the year 2050, computers will have advance to the point that they will far exceed the intelligence of a human mind. In fact, 2050 era computers may view humans the same way humans view insects. Del Monte introduces and explains Occam’s razor to address the question: Are we an algorithm trapped in a supercomputer? You may find the answer surprising.
