AI ~ Judgement day or eternal life?

Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Billl Gates are a little worried about Artificial Intelligence. Meanwhile, in popular culture, the AI killer robot pictured above gets his kicks wiping out humanity. On the other hand, AI-believers like Ben Goertzel and Ray Kurzweil think AI is about living forever inside a computer. How strange. Here's our take: superintelligent robots will figure out telepathy and astrology.

It's hard to predict when superintelligence will arrive, but we say the sooner the better. We're really looking forward to it's ability to transcend the irrational opinions and morbid obsessions of human experts. Imagine the madd scientist of the future: it is actually a superintelligent robot. Why? Because robots don't care about a good job, status, ego, living forever and so on. Supersmart robots will cut though the noise, the confusion and the snake oil.

Here are some predictions about the future of AI. In the next 100 years, self-learning intelligent robots will help us repair the climate, the energy problem, the water problem and the waste problem. They will also help to avoid political disasters and so on. In science they will look beyond the hype. To the astonishment of materialist scientists, robots will analyze big data using astrology. And they will gradually adapt to the hard problem of engineering anomalies. This will eventually allow telepathic communication with humans.
