The first truly intelligent machine may be humanity's last invention (they need to make).
@fribbledom I doubt we will ever see a truly intelligent machine, in the fullest sense of the word "intelligent" as applied to human beings. Intelligence is just too vast.
Hmm that does sound like quite a lot. Not clear how much are needed, though.
Humans are in a sense machines too, though. No doubt at all human minds will be surpassed to say the least. By many orders of magnitude, potentially. Probably not in our lifetimes, or even originating from our civilization..
@fribbledom have you read Life 3.0? If you’re into artificial general intelligence, it’s amazing.
@fribbledom sooooo not the inclined plane then
@fribbledom AAAAH BAD GLYPH!
@fribbledom SAY HOW YOU DID THIS!!!!!!!
@standsinshock Did what?
@fribbledom TYPING THAT GLYPH.
@fribbledom counterpoint: humans are inherently driven to create things and would continue inventing weird stuff even if they didn't need to make things for practical purposes anymore
I agree, but don't see it as a counterpoint, really. Those are inventions we _want_ to make, don't need to make.
For the same reasons I imagine art and music will probably remain in the human domain for the most part.
@clacke Thanks for sharing, sounds intriguing!
