This is all getting quite exciting if I may say so ;)
Some new company is again making big claims. They say
they've succeeded in creating the world's first true
AGI , which they call PIBOT, and that they're going to
unveil PIBOT to the world in a series of press
conferences starting at the end of this year. See:
Sounds like a hoax to me. I've read the stuff on the
web-site and hey, even I could write something more
plausible sounding and clever than that ;) I see no
evidence they've even got a rudimentary AGI theory.
Still, it all adds to the general fun I suppose.
--- My own top-down theory of metaphysics is finally completed. A far more coherent summary piece than anything I've posted to SL4 can be found here: http://www.toequest.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1334 Why did I waste so much time fiddling around with philosophical hot-air on SL4 you may all ask? (3 years I've been thinking about it now actually, and 95% of everything I said was shit). The answer is my belief that if you don't get the fundamentals right you're screwed from the start. These are, I claim, the correct fundamentals at long long last. My theory has 9 'Universal Utilities', which I claim, form the correct moral invariant that any working AGI has to be built with - see the 'Table Of Universal Utilities'. The ideas as intended only as a very very rough top-down strategy towards AGI. Before I hear the inevitable howls and flames about how useless philosophy is again, let me point out that a very rough and fuzzy document which is correct (no matter how crude it reads) is better than a million clever 1000-page technical documents that are wrong ;) Since my general top-down philosophical strategy is completed at last, I am now moving to trying my hand at design. --- I've also finished the 'Singularitarian's Internet Directory', my listing of what I judge to be the top-100 web-sites relevant to AGI/Singularity stuff from the perspective of those wanting hard science. The directory is divided into 4 main areas: Reality Theory, Cognitive Science, Mathematics and Info-Tech.
