She seems exceptionally ethical and concerned with the wellbeing of sentient life. Her concerns on “AGI rights” are in principle valid. I pondered the […]

Learning does not require Intelligence. How an AGI should learn

Have you ever wondered why there are so many unintelligent PhD’s? Perhaps the greatest impediment to why no one so far has proposed a concrete algorithmic proposal to implement AGI is the great confusion as to what Intelligence is. Learning has not even remotely anything to do with Intelligence (NLU has, however but unambiguously worded […]

Motivation Considered Harmful

There is this pervasive idea that an AGI needs Motivation. Presumably borne out of the realization that since humans achieve nothing without motivation – not even a novel idea, neither would an autonomous robot be of any use without the motivation to achieve a (sub)task. Motivation must be defined first. It normally is defined as […]

Why an AGI can’t create a better AGI and why that doesn’t matter

This idea appears to be prima facie logical and reasonable but I argue that this is a complete impossibility. Not that this […]
