What are we escaping from ?


Pleased to meet you. Hope you guessed my name. But what's puzzling me is the nature of your game.

Escape Velocity is a term used to describe the point when AI is sufficiently advanced that it effectively relieves humans of the job of inventing. We should probably explain that in the forum introduction.

The job of inventing ? Isn't that like saying that you no longer need to create anything ? Then we're done ? Might as well be ? Replaced. Obsolete.

Well not yet I guess. But if obsolescence is a trend won't AI become obsolete? I wonder what it will think of that. How motivating is that ?

You are well on your way to becoming a futurist. You have come to the right place.

The brain is by nature a futurist.

Tech,

Good to meet you.

We choose the title by acclimation, and read into it anything.

What Spike notes we recognize as the tech term for EV. And it was good for me as a title just because I accepted it with little thought. The "explore the future" part is what is key.

We are used to ranging all over creation with our discussions, but the ideal focus was our path to what Vernor Vinge decades ago, and Ray Kurzweil currently is famous for - the idea of a tech IT singularity.

AI that gets so good, so fast that tracking it on on a graph, the curve of improvement arches upward and represents what is known in math as a singularity. Not the stellar kind of gravitic strong-point, but a math oddity of almost infinite change over almost no time.

The idea is that this math represents how our IT science will move at some point. AI builds other AI now indirectly, helping designers. Later it will be doing it faster, independently. That will speed up and the AI will start improving at a faster and faster rate.

If this doesn't seem too odd to you, or even if it does, here's a good 'splainer - [url][sign in to see URL]

Doc

Got it. Understand it. Been on Rays site. My interest is in the ultimate goals and motivations of super intelligence. If it could maintain motivation at all after a certain level of understanding.

BTW also a Heinlin fan.

There's no such thing as a free lunch.

It is human salvation IF Machine Intelligence does become the primary inventor. Actually, humans might become dumber, because AI invents everything?

This may never be true about the dumbness aspect. Because even the smartest people are ever-curious, and will be tinkering with matter and flow (my term for energy) for um-teen thousands of galactic cycles. Keep an eye on, the amount of quantum computing qubits for this.
