You might someday be much, much smarter than you are now. That's the hope of neuroscientists focused on understanding the basis of intelligence. They have discovered that the brains of people with high IQs tend to be highly integrated, with neural paths connecting distant brain regions, while less intelligent people's brains build simpler, shorter routes. But no one knows why some brains construct much longer-range connections than others.
Superhuman AI Future
Mind Ramblings: Superhuman Intelligence, Super Absurd?
Now that super-human AI seems plausible, some of us have become worried about safety regarding the future AI development. They typically come in two forms. The first concern is that due to our inability to understanding the technical issues involved in complex systems, an AI system may end up exhibiting behavior or achieving a goal much different than what the designer purported. If the capabilities of this system are super-human in most aspects, it may end up unintentionally being dangerous to humans.
995 experts opinion: AGI / singularity by 2060 [2021 update]
By Emma Innes. Sci-fi has long been fascinated by the idea of creating a race of people with superhuman intelligence, but two experts have now argued that this is far from a good idea. Theoretical neurobiologist Mark Changizi, and philosopher Mark Walker, have both spent more time contemplating the issue than most.
As we continue to speculate the plausibility of superhuman AI, some have become concerned about our future regarding such technologically advanced entities. Their concerns are chiefly of two forms. Some concerns are regarding the possibility of AI systems achieving goals or exhibiting behaviors that are much different than what the designer originally purported.
