Implying we can create an AI
Implying advancement is unlimited when in what we know today it is not, and it probably already reached at it is peak
Implying rules of physics can be broken just because you have enough knowledge.

OP we as humans already know that there are things that we will never reach no matter how much knowledge we have, for instance, no matter how smart you are, you probably won´t find a method which we can use to travel faster then light.

Singularity is a meme, AI´s are probably a meme as well...

Even today, we have so much specific fields that we are getting to a place where is impossible to know or do everything, to see the whole picture,

even today I mean we can oversimplify, but there is not a single men today who can explain how modern society functions in all it is details. a pencil for example? do you know how it is made? where the resources come? how are the processes?

probably not.

Look at ancient genius Da Vinci for instance
he excelled as a scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, poet and musician.It is still known as the precursor of aviation and ballistics.

It is possible to someone master all those subjects nowadays? with all the knowledge we have?
Of course not, and even if it was, it does not mean we would actually find out something relevant

Why? We know intelligence is possible, and I rather doubt it is limited to wet meat in bony skulls. Given that it is a thing that is possible, surely we will figure out how to make it from scratch eventually.

Even today, we have so much specific fields that we are getting to a place where is impossible to know or do everything, to see the whole picture,
True, but that is a limitation due to the speed at which humans can think and their lifespan. Neither need apply to a more efficient AI.

While I doubt we'll see it in our lifetimes - we wouldn't be that far out, even if we had to code it ourselves. Combine enough expert systems and you can pass a Turing test for quite some time, even under current technology.

But we probably won't code the first AI ourselves. Our first AI will probably be ourselves... Or more specifically, a simulation of us. (A fact said book @Nude_Bikergirl
tends to gloss over.)

As brain scanning technology improves, a simulated brain is pretty much inevitable. It may not run in real time, at first, probably be more than a bit mad, and will probably take an incredible amount of resources, and thus be only a single brain used primarily for neurological diagnostic purposes, but it's much more apt to happen than an AI coded from scratch. We're already simulating insect brains, so it's just a matter of time and scale, likely something in the next few hundred years, rather than millions.

Granted, it'll probably be quite a bit time after that before we have common usage of said and have it running in real time, given that you also have to simulate enough stimulus to stop it from going comatose, and enough of its body to get useful output. Such AI's may not be any smarter than the people they were birthed from, even running at real time. The simulation would be subject to many of the same limitations of the biological brain, but, eventually, you would be able to copy-pasta the minds of several specialists and have them work on a single task. Might not be the sudden singularity that folks are dreaming of, but it'd certainly be a massive advancement, and it'd allow us to tinker with a virtual brain and thus understand ourselves in ways we never could otherwise, possibly leading to improvements on ourselves in turn.

Then, maybe we can understand enough about how the mind works to code one up from scratch. I suppose all of us will be long dead before then - save, maybe, whoever's child is unfortunate enough to become the first model.

I wonder who you'd get to volunteer for that first model. You probably wouldn't want a genius, actually, as folks with abnormal intelligence tend to have other mental abnormalities. You'd want someone fairly neurotypical, yet willing to be invasively scanned for a virtual construct of themselves that will probably undergo unimaginable torture in the first trials, just working out how to keep the construct stimulated, and in the distant future, be copied hundreds of times, perhaps tortured in similar experiments near countless times.

Could you even find a sane person with a typical levels of social empathy to volunteer for such a thing? Especially given that, as time goes on, people are probably going to have more empathy for their machines and virtual world as it becomes ever more efficient at eliciting such emotions?

ehh that is a meme as well...
You are constantly forgetting shit to learn new shit, probably 95% of data you take you simply discard, and if you don´t use for long periods you lose it as well.

I am software developer, worked for 2 years lost my job, and focused on other shit for an entire, once I came back I forgot 80% of shit, of course it was a lot more easier to recover everything, and in to two weeks I was ready again(or at least have this impression because the brain is deceiving as fuck).

Imagine it, with one year, now I supposed if it was 10 I would probably had forgotten everything.

So no, the brain is very powerfull, but we are reaching a time where the concepts are too advanced to understand...

Look at quantum physics fields, or thermodynamics... plenty studies take years or decades to even check if it right, ONE SINGLE STUDY.

Your brain is the perfect quantum computer(something we pretty sure we know we can´t reproduce), and even so, it is very flawed.

Lots of things were very complicated and took years to understand when they were new and state-of-the-art. Then once we properly understood it, we could simplify away a LOT of it, and translate it into polished textbooks that undergrads study in Physics 1. It is entirely likely that the same will happen to quantum physics at some point, once we really understand it.

Your brain is the perfect quantum computer(something we pretty sure we know we can´t reproduce)
Wait, what? Most definitely not. The brain is a very imperfect, non-quantum computer, which we are really quite sure we can reproduce eventually.

I didn't mean oversimplification. What I meant is that when you really properly understand a subject, you can often explain it in a way that is MUCH simpler than the inconsistent and exception-ridden mess you had on your hands while discovering it, when you know how to look at it from exactly the right viewpoint, based on exactly the right abstractions.

To a student who knows calculus, about half of the Principia can be summarized as "the derivate of (velocity * mass) over time is a preserved entity". Once you have exactly the right notions of calculus and preservation laws already in your head from an earlier curriculum (carefully designed with this goal in mind), and you are expressing your knowledge in exactly the right concepts (velocity, mass, derivatives), then suddenly that whole triumph of science becomes almost trivial.

As well as that, you should look into the current state-of-the art in AI

http://www.businessinsider.com/heres-why-ibms-watson-supercomputer-is-not-revolutionary-2017-9?IR=T

Perhaps the most stunning overreach is in the company’s claim that Watson for Oncology, through artificial intelligence, can sift through reams of data to generate new insights and identify, as an IBM sales rep put it, “even new approaches” to cancer care. STAT found that the system doesn’t create new knowledge and is artificially intelligent only in the most rudimentary sense of the term.
While Watson became a household name by winning the TV game show “Jeopardy!”, its programming is akin to a different game-playing machine: the Mechanical Turk, a chess-playing robot of the 1700s, which dazzled audiences but hid a secret — a human operator shielded inside.
In the case of Watson for Oncology, those human operators are a couple dozen physicians at a single, though highly respected, U.S. hospital: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Doctors there are empowered to input their own recommendations into Watson, even when the evidence supporting those recommendations is thin.

As brain scanning technology improves, a simulated brain is pretty much inevitable.

This is a huge stretch considering the state of the current brain imaging technologies. There are some good ways to solve out the anatomy, track the fibers between larger nodes around the brain. Functional imaging is basically just fMRI, which produced 1 fps at best - quite probably inherently missing some of the information about the cascades of the brain networks. There are no good ways to measure the calculations that different nodes conduct to the information passing through. Technicalities, maybe, but still very far out of reach.

Gathering the data flow inwards and outwards from a specific region requires invasive procedures, I'm not even sure if there are any of that scale. Imagine measuring invasively some subcortical region like the hippocampus with the myriad of inputs and outputs it has.

If someone has better information, please enlighten me.

Whole brain emulation is a bit of a distraction.

Imagine a race between 2 groups of equally intelligent people. The task is to build a vehicle capable of flying. Group A know that birds fly, and begin studying how flapping works.

Group B is more focused on the core of the problem, how to get something heavy to stay in the air.

Group B of-course wins. They could have made a hot-air ballon, a 747, whatever.

Group A got caught up on mimicking the quirks of bird morphology, rather than remembering the core problem, to get something to FLY.

Conclusion : Copying a brain to make AI, is like copying a bird to make a plane. Some insights can be gained, but ultimately it takes longer than going straight to the root of the problem, and trying to solve that.

massdebater

@TurtleCat
It's a little different when you can't even define the problem. Flight is pretty easy to define - consciousness, not so much so.

Besides, in this case, it's not an attempt to build a machine like the bird, it's imprinting the bird's form into a machine. Much more comparable to making a mold than designing a new beast from scratch, even if, yes, we're talking about an extraordinarily detailed mold.

be a giant reptile
there are eventually some simple mammals around
lol who give a fuck about mammals, we run this bitch.
global temperature dips
plants recede
turns out being a small mammal is a way better for surviving climate upheavals
mammals develop large forebrains
large forebrain turns out to break the previous survival system, allowing complex environments to be created for said mammals
giant lizards are replaced by much smaller lizards, and in much smaller quantities
mammals go to space
mammals create even better version of forebrain that will be better suited to inevitable climate upheavals

"Guis how do we kill the mammals before they take over?"

This is what you are literally asking.

Tfw when we will live on only as hedonistic superclones, since AI understands baser human drives better than we do.

@massdebater
that was actually pretty funny. my sides etc.

desu my gut tells me that the chinese room thing isn't really much of an argument against ai implementing semantics
either because it's predicated on trivial limitations in our current knowledge/technical capabilities, or more likely, because the human brain is essentially an incredibly sophisticated chinese room, and that our feeling of "understanding" and our belief in "meaning" is essentially an illusion, albeit a very elaborate one.
i'm having trouble finding good sources that discuss symbol grounding and which aren't simply philosophical circle jerks that are totally oblivious to contemporary research on robots and machine learning.
any suggestions???
