Predicting the Singularity

Futurists differ on the technical marvels and cultural changes that will precede the singularity. In this context, let us define the singularity as a point in time when an artificially intelligent machine exceeds the combined cognitive intelligence of the entire …

How Will We Know IF Artificial Intelligence Equals Human Intelligence?

Today, we find many different opinions regarding what constitutes human intelligence. There is no one widely accepted answer. Here are two definitions that have found some acceptance among the scientific community. “A very general mental capability that, among other things, …

Artificial Intelligence Is Approaching Human Intelligence

According to Moore’s law, computer-processing power doubles every eighteen months. Using Moore’s law and simple mathematics suggest that in ten years, the processing power of our personal computers will be over a hundred times greater than the computers we currently …

How Moore’s Law Ended the Second AI Winter

In our last post, I stated, “While AI as a field of research experienced funding surges and recessions, the infrastructure that ultimately fuels AI, integrated circuits, and computer software continued to follow Moore’s law. In the next post, we’ll discuss …

What Caused the Second “AI Winter”?

In our last post, we stated, “When the early founders of AI set extremely high expectations, they invited scrutiny. With the passing years, it became obvious that the reality of artificial intelligence fell short of their predictions. In 1974, funding …

What Caused the First “AI Winter”?

Artificial intelligence (AI) surrounds us. However, much the same way we seldom read billboards as we drive, we seldom recognize AI. Even though we use technology, like our car GPS to get directions, we do not recognize that at its …

Should We Consider Strong Artificially Intelligent Machines (SAMs) A New Life-Form?

What is a strong artificially intelligent machine (SAM)? It is a machine whose intelligence equals that of a human being. Although no SAM currently exists, many artificial intelligence researchers project SAMs will exist by the mid-21st Century. This has major …

Artificial Intelligence Threatens Human Extinction

While researching my new book, War At The Speed Of Light, I surfaced some important questions regarding the threat artificial intelligence poses to humanity. For example, Will your grandchildren face extinction? Even worse, will they become robotic slaves to a …
