We’re in uncharted territory for artificial intelligence.
With its ability to help us improve our lives, we’ve always imagined that AI would play a role in all aspects of our lives.
But what if it becomes our great asset?
What if it helps us get ahead of the game, or save the world?
What would that be like?
This week, the world’s foremost expert on artificial intelligence, Professor Nick Bostrom, has launched a new book titled, “The Future of Artificial Intelligence: Why Artificial Intelligence is a Human Good.”
Bostram is a professor of philosophy at the University of Oxford, and one of the world´s leading thinkers on the future of AI.
In this interview with TalkSport, Bostroms thoughts on the topic of artificial intelligence and how it might change our lives are just a taste of what he has to say.
Interview: Nick BocastromsThe Future Of Artificial IntelligenceHow did you get into AI?
How did AI become your greatest asset, what did you think when you first started thinking about AI?
I first began thinking about artificial intelligence in my early twenties, when I realised that we were living in a digital world, a world that was rapidly evolving.
In the digital world you have a wide variety of information available to you at any time, and you can search and access all kinds of information in a way that was previously impossible.
For instance, you can find a book on the internet, and all you have to do is search for it and look it up.
This was a huge leap forward.
But then in the early 1990s, there was a big problem with this digital world.
One of the things that I realised was that it was all based on a certain set of assumptions that were completely wrong.
For example, if you search for a book, you are going to get hundreds of books.
If you have an idea for an idea, it will be hard to find a suitable match.
We were living with a massive problem that was very different to any other problem that we had faced in the past.
It was at this point that I was looking for a way of solving the problem of the search and discovery problem that I had developed in the 1970s, which was to take the existing problems that people had faced and use those to solve a more complex problem.
So I went to Stanford and took a course in computational biology.
I took a class on how to design software systems, and the computer scientists there taught me a lot of very technical stuff.
But one of my main interests was how to think about how to do something that was completely novel.
So I decided to take that approach.
I started working on artificial-intelligence research in the late 80s, and it was at that point that something changed in my life.
I became very interested in the idea of a human-level AI.
At that time, there were lots of people doing this sort of work, and I realised there was no point trying to develop a computer that was human-like.
I wanted to do a computer with a much higher level of intelligence.
I had some ideas about how that could be done, and they were pretty novel.
At this point, there wasn’t really a huge body of knowledge about what the human brain does.
It was very limited in the ways that it could be used to learn.
But then I realised, as we were moving into a computer age, that if we were going to make progress in artificial intelligence research, we needed to start looking at how the brain actually works.
I thought that a good way to do this was to go back to the basics of what the brain does, and that is to look at the way that it processes information.
This is the part that the computer does the most work in the computer world.
If we want to be able to design computers that can learn and be smarter, we need to take a look at how that information is processed in the brain.
So that’s when I decided that AI could be one of our greatest assets.
The human brain is a machine that is very complex.
If there is a computer system that can do this, it can be designed to be smarter than any human.
In other words, the system that is designed to do that is going to be more intelligent than the human system.
I think the first step that I think is a huge step forward is to understand that the information that we have is not all coming from a single source, but rather it is spread across many different sources.
We have the internet.
We are now at the point where the internet is being used for a lot more than just information.
The internet can be used for information processing, it’s used to get news, it´s used to organise information.
So in the future, we can be designing systems that are designed to use this information processing to solve problems.
So what can we do with the information processing that we are already doing?
First of all, we should be able get more
