Big Think has a fascinating interview with Dr. Michio Kaku.

Dr. Michio Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory, and is one of the most widely recognized scientists in the world today. He has written 4 New York Times Best Sellers, is the science correspondent for CBS This Morning and has hosted numerous science specials for BBC-TV, the Discovery/Science Channel. His radio show broadcasts to 100 radio stations every week. Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at the City College of New York (CUNY), where he has taught for over 25 years. He has also been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, as well as New York University (NYU). He is the author of “The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth” (https://amzn.to/2lQyjy4)

The 5th Kind has a slightly alarmist, yet interesting, look at how AI will transform our lives, society, and the nature of what it means to be human.

As we become ever more reliant on cellular phones and devices to aid in our everyday tasks; rapid development into new technologies and Artificial Intelligence is underway at an alarming rate.

Modern devices are now specifically designed to interact with us in ways that mimic a real human being. Applications such as “siri” and “google-cast” are providing the user with a human-like interaction experience. These companies are Creating Artificially intelligent machines. Machines exhibiting cognitive behaviour, with human-like intelligence.

In this Documentary we explore the race to perfect AI machinery – researchers believe that very soon a “singularity” will be created. A machine that rises beyond human control. Something uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in catastrophic changes to human civilization.  

It’s always fun to see what the “normies” think about what AI engineers are working on. Winking smile

Dani, a game developer, recently made a game and decided to train an AI to play it.

A couple of weeks ago I made a video “Making a Game in ONE Day (12 Hours)”, and today I’m trying to teach an A.I to play my game!

Basically I’m gonna use Neural Networks to make the A.I learn to play my game.

This is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m really happy I finally got around to do it. Some of the biggest inspirations for this is obviously carykh, Jabrils & Codebullet!
