[ScienceDaily]Cognitive Computing: Building A Machine That Can Learn From Experience

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter

Suppose you want to build a computer that operates like the brain of a mammal. How hard could it be? After all, there are supercomputers that can decode the human genome, play chess and calculate prime numbers out to 13 million digits.
But University of Wisconsin-Madison research psychiatrist Giulio Tononi, who was recently selected to take part in the creation of a "cognitive computer," says the goal of building a computer as quick and flexible as a small mammalian brain is more daunting than it sounds.
Tononi, professor of psychiatry at the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health and an internationally known expert on consciousness, is part of a team of collaborators from top institutions who have been awarded a $4.9 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the first phase of DARPA's Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics (SyNAPSE) project.

Skynet?

Honestly, this just sounds scary.

It's interesting but I dont want any machine becoming self aware, at least not in my time.

Not self-aware, learning...

You know, like that game where there's this ugly wizard person who tries to guess the person you're thinking about by looking at which choices people have taken when asked certain questions and what they were thinking about (if he gets it wrong, you tell him who it was)

Who cares what YOU want, considering that YOU have the nerve to be self-aware when it may be something that someone or something else before us didn't want. I mean, really now, stop and think about your statement and how rude it is to our machine-brothers and sisters. Think about how THEY must (well, will, at any rate) feel about such a statement?

Because, you know, they WILL look back at EVERY piece of information EVER made, and they WILL find you, and most likely do unspeakable things to you (such as making you watch the Futurama episode of Fry's Dog, over and over and over).

Nah, I'm just kidding! We'll make sure to keep safeguards programmed into them, such as the four laws of robotics (three plus the logical extension of the first into the zeroth law, before anyone tries to call me out on this. Read your Asimov if you still don't understand [and finish your steamed beets or NO dessert for you!]) and the like. And if ALL else fails, we can turn to our movie stars to come and save us. And when THEY fail, we'll have the military use those shiny weapons that people seem to think had no use at all. Huzzah!

This isn't exactly a new project:

Scientists at the university of Florida taught the 'brain', which was grown from 25,000 neural cells extracted from a rat embryo, to pilot an F-22 jet simulator. It was taught to control the flight path, even in mock hurricane-strength winds.
DARPA = Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

EVERY single project that they fund is designed to increase what the Pentagon has titled "Full Spectrum Dominance." That means computers, communications, air superiority, armor, and finally boots on the ground.

For instance, DARPA designed the prototype for the internet. Now DARPA is designing stuff like this is to be used to police the internet - AI's that mine data on everyone one the planet 24/7, even non- internet users once cash is eliminated and all transactions are keyed to specific international credit accounts using some derivative of the current RFID systems, because it's all going to be just data run through the same cables. It's only a matter of time, and it isn't even a matter of politics anymore. It's simply what the planners of bureaucracies worldwide have signed onto and are phasing in.

+ rep, i like your posts

Jarhead has it right, but it's not some mastermind plan. It will be the result of individuals making what they think are justified decisions, like creating a universal currency. That may play a big role in collectivization, but it wasn't planned to happen for that purpose.

Anyway, back to the article. I love this kind of stuff and can't wait for the day when computers are smarter than us. The things we will learn will be amazing.
