5 No, no podemos/ Si, si Podemos/ Solo podemos con ellos

Cybathlon 2016-The Push Continues to Merge the Iron & Clay

La reflexión que no encarna en discusiones sobre materialidad corre el riesgo de volarse demasiado, y caer en manos de intelectuales farragosos que no es nuestro caso.

A primera vista las siguientes encarnaciones (teoría incorporada) podrían srevir para ilustrat en detalle la viabilidad (o no ) de las superinteligencias

Autómatas (que van de los robots hasta los coches autónomos)

Pildoras Inteligentes (una buena metáfora es la opción que debe tomar Neo , la azul o la roja ) para lidiar/ignorar con la realidad

VR (lentes realidad virtual)

En USA están enloquecidos con los algoritmos, los robots, la analítica, las redes sociales, pero también hay mucha literatura con posturas en criticas.

Aquí algunas notas y puntualizaciones al azar sobre los temas en discusion

¿Es computable un ser humano?

Pero también mucho escepticismo y autocrítica

Todas las tapas de las revistas mensuales (Wired, Time, Business Bloomberg, Fast Company, MIT Technology Review) están dedicadas a como los robots están ocupando nuestros espacios, con lo que el titulo SUPERINTELIGENCIAS está que arde.

Entrando en tema…

Los datos son fulminantes, las tapas de revistas nos preavisan, los libros que generan mas miedo que otra cosa están a la vuelta de la esquina.

Sin querer ser exhaustivos este listado de libros recientes muestra como el discurso apocalíptico en la interacción hombre/máquina le gana al integrado, sobretodo en un momento de potenciamiento inesperado y brutal de las inteligencias sintéticas (sin que necesariamente sus autores sen reduccionistas o tecnofetichistas), pero la onda meter miedo predomina

Kaplan, Jerry Humans Need Not Apply: A Guide to Wealth and Work in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

After billions of dollars and fifty years of effort, researchers are finally cracking the code on artificial intelligence. As society stands on the cusp of unprecedented change, Jerry Kaplan unpacks the latest advances in robotics, machine learning, and perception powering systems that rival or exceed human capabilities. Driverless cars, robotic helpers, and intelligent agents that promote our interests have the potential to usher in a new age of affluence and leisure” but as Kaplan warns, the transition may be protracted and brutal unless we address the two great scourges of the modern developed world: volatile labor markets and income inequality.

Brynjolfsson, Erik & McAfee, Andrew
The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies

In recent years, Google’s autonomous cars have logged thousands of miles on American highways and IBM’s Watson trounced the best human Jeopardy! players. Digital technologies—with hardware, software, and networks at their core—will in the near future diagnose diseases more accurately than doctors can, apply enormous data sets to transform retailing, and accomplish many tasks once considered uniquely human. Professions of all kinds—from lawyers to truck drivers—will be forever upended. A fundamentally optimistic book,

Barrat, James
Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era

Through profiles of tech visionaries, industry watchdogs, and groundbreaking AI systems, Our Final Invention explores the perils of the heedless pursuit of advanced AI. Until now, human intelligence has had no rival. Can we coexist with beings whose intelligence dwarfs our own? And will they allow us to?

Bolstron, Nick
Superintelligences: Paths, Dangers, Strategies

As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on humans than on the species itself, so would the fate of humankind depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one advantage: we get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed Artificial Intelligence, to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation? What happens when machines surpass humans in general intelligence? Will artificial agents save or destroy us?

Clark, Andy
Natural-born cyborgs: Minds, Technologies, and the Future of Human Intelligence

Clark argues that what makes humans so different from other species is our capacity to fully incorporate tools and supporting cultural practices into our existence. Our minds are primed to seek out and incorporate non-biological resources, so that we actually think and feel through our best technologies. Drawing on his expertise in cognitive science, Clark demonstrates that our sense of self and of physical presence can be expanded to a remarkable extent, placing the long-existing telephone and the emerging technology of telepresence on the same continuum. As we enter an age of wearable computers, sensory augmentation, wireless devices, intelligent environments, thought-controlled prosthetics, and rapid-fire information search and retrieval, the line between the user and her tools grows thinner day by day.

Colvin, Geoff
Humans Are Underrated: What high achievers know that brilliant machines never will

how the abilities that will prove most essential to our success are no longer the technical, classroom-taught left-brain skills that economic advances have demanded from workers in the past. Instead, our greatest advantage lies in our most essentially human abilities – empathy, creativity, social sensitivity, storytelling, humour, building relationships, and expressing ourselves with greater power than a machine mind could ever achieve

The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World

Algorithms increasingly run our lives. They find books, movies, jobs, and dates for us, manage our investments, and discover new drugs. More and more, these algorithms work by learning from the trails of data we leave in our newly digital world. Like curious children, they observe us, imitate, and experiment. And in the world’s top research labs and universities, the race is on to invent the ultimate learning algorithm: one capable of discovering any knowledge from data, and doing anything we want, before we even ask.

Machine learning is the automation of discovery—the scientific method on steroids—that enables intelligent robots and computers to program themselves. He charts a course through machine learning’s five major schools of thought, showing how they turn ideas from neuroscience, evolution, psychology, physics, and statistics into algorithms ready to serve you

Ford, Martin Rise of the Robots Technology and the threat of a jobless future

Intelligent algorithms are already well on their way to making white collar jobs obsolete: travel agents, data-analysts, and paralegals are currently in the firing line. In the near future, doctors, taxi-drivers and ironically even computer programmers are poised to be replaced by ‘robots’. Without a radical reassessment of our economic and political structures, we risk the very implosion of the capitalist economy itself.

Gorbis,. Marina
The nature of the future Dispatches from the Socialstructed World

Marina Gorbis, head of the Institute for the Future, portrays, a thriving new relationship-driven or socialstructed economy is emerging in which individuals are harnessing the powers of new technologies to join together and provide an array of products and services. Examples of this changing economy range from BioCurious, a members-run and free-to-use bio lab, to the peer-to-peer lending platform Lending Club, to the remarkable Khan Academy, a free online-teaching service. These engaged and innovative pioneers are filling gaps and doing the seemingly impossible by reinventing business, education, medicine, banking, government, and even scientific research.

Kotler, Steve
Tomorrow Land

From the ways science and technology are fundamentally altering our bodies and our world (the world’s first bionic soldier, the future of evolution) to those explosive collisions between science and culture (life extension and bioweapons), we’re crossing moral and ethical lines we’ve never faced before.

Markoff, John
Machines of Loving Grace: The Quest for Common Ground Between Humans and Robots

We are on the verge of a technological revolution, Markoff argues, and robots will profoundly transform the way our lives are organized. Developers must now draw a bright line between what is human and what is machine, or risk upsetting the delicate balance between them. (3ra position)

Muelhauser, Luke
Facing the intelligence explosion

Sometime this century, machines will surpass human levels of intelligence and ability. This event—the “intelligence explosion”—will be the most important event in our history, and navigating it wisely will be the most important thing we can ever do. Luminaries from Alan Turing and I. J. Good to Bill Joy and Stephen Hawking have warned us about this. Why do I think Hawking and company are right, and what can we do about it? Facing the Intelligence Explosion is my attempt to answer these questions. (No)

Pistono, Federico
Robots will steal your Job But That’s OK: How to Survive the Economic Collapse and Be Happy

You are about to become obsolete. You think you are special, unique, and that whatever it is that you are doing is impossible to replace. You are wrong. As we speak, millions of algorithms created by computer scientists are frantically running on servers all over the world, with one sole purpose: do whatever humans can do, but better.

Steiner, Christopher Automate this How Algorithms Took Over Our Markets, Our Jobs, and the World

In Automate This, we meet bots that are driving cars, penning haiku, and writing music mistaken for Bach’s. They listen in on our customer service calls and figure out what Iran would do in the event of a nuclear standoff. There are algorithms that can pick out the most cohesive crew of astronauts for a space mission or identify the next Jeremy Lin. Some can even ingest statistics from baseball games and spit out pitch-perfect sports journalism indistinguishable from that produced by humans.

The interaction of man and machine can make our lives easier. But what will the world look like when algorithms control our hospitals, our roads, our culture, and our national security? What hap?pens to businesses when we automate judgment and eliminate human instinct? And what role will be left for doctors, lawyers, writers, truck drivers, and many others?

Por suerte la tecnología es no-lineal, sus efectos muchas veces son inesperados y contradictorios, a veces generan consecuencias inesperadas (no siempre negativas), y con la evidencia conseguida en los dos últimos años hemos pasado de la especulación (que nunca puede competir en imaginación y creatividad con la ciencia-ficción) al testeo de prototipos

Por eso aunque una obra reciente exploró el tema en detalle (casi ya como síntesis reivindicativa) planteándose

¿qué pensamos acerca de las máquinas que piensan?

Algorithmic Music – David Cope and EMI

David Cope: ‘You pushed the button and out came hundreds and thousands of sonatas

David Cope’s software creates beautiful, original music. Why are people so angry about that?

“Nobody’s original,” Cope says. “We are what we eat, and in music, we are what we hear. What we do is look through history and listen to music. Everybody copies from everybody. The skill is in how large a fragment you choose to copy and how elegantly you can put them together.”
