Comment Re:Until true AI is developed.... (Score 1) 318

In the end between the robot companies, the programers and the robot maintainers you end up with more or less the same number of jobs than those that were lost just with higher productivity and better results.

You're insane.
For every robot company worker, programmer or robot maintainer there will be hundreds of low-level service workers who will have no way to break out of poverty, if automation keeps increasing at its current rate.

Comment Re:This researcher lacks vision... (Score 1) 262

Anyone following the latest results in deep neural networks (with recurrent designs for temporal or sequential pattern recognition and recent-memory emphasis) can see that it won't be too much longer before a good "general intelligence" architecture emerges.

How much longer is "too much longer"?
Ten years?
A hundred years?
A thousand years?
I have no idea, and neither does anybody else.

You won't need a Turing test, because it will act alive

Too bad you will have no way of recognising whether it is "acting alive" or just faking.

It will have to say "ouch!" and really mean it when you stick it with a pin

Again, you will have no way of knowing whether it "really means it" or is just faking.
The whole issue of machine sentience is moot - and a foolish waste of time.

Crazee Edeee, his prices are INSANE!!!
