HOW WOULD you program a god?
Rapid advances in artificial intelligence research make it increasingly likely that we’ll see a functional machine intelligence sometime in the 21st century. Our guest, Dr. Hugo de Garis, author of The Artilect War: Cosmists vs. Terrans, believes that such a development will inevitably lead to a global conflict for survival that could cause the deaths of billions.
The big question: Can we create an autonomous superintelligence that won’t destroy us?
Here is the link to our previous interview with Dr. de Garis, and here is the essay on X-teched creatures (link opens a PDF document) we referenced during the show. And if you haven’t already, you should listen to Dr. de Garis interviewed by Basil and Gonz on Canary Cry Radio.
Derek and Sharon Gilbert will be at the Prophecy in the News Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit July 25-27, 2014 at the Marriott Hotel in Colorado Springs. Watch for information here.
