Luke Muehlhauser Discusses The Singularity And Super-Human AI




 Artificial Intelligence
At this year's Singularity Summit, Luke Muehlhauser took on those who argue that superhuman artificial intelligence will forever remain beyond the capabilities of technology.
Luke Muehlhauser, Executive Director of the Singularity Institute, took on skeptics at this year's Singularity Summit who argue that superhuman artificial intelligence will forever remain beyond the capabilities of technology.

"If you make these kinds of predictions about what machines can't do, you're going to end up on the wrong side of history," says Muelhlhauser.

Muehlhauser joined the Singularity Institute in 2011 as a researcher, but was quickly appointed Executive Director. He has written dozens of articles and papers on meta-ethics, intelligence explosion theory, and the cognitive science of rationality and human motivation, including the Singularity FAQ and Facing The Singularity.

Previously, he hosted the podcast Conversations from the Pale Blue Dot. He also organized and implemented (with Anna Salamon) Singularity Institute's 2011 rationality training minicamp, and was the lead author of our strategic plan.

The Story of the Chessboard


The classic parable of how the inventor of the game of chess used his knowledge of exponential growth to trick an emperor is commonly used to explain the staggering and accelerating growth of technology. The 33rd square on the chessboards represents the first step into the second half of the chessboard, where exponential growth takes off.

33rd Square explores technological progress in AI, robotics, genomics, neuroscience, nanotechnology, art, design and the future as humanity encroaches on The Singularity.
