It’s the hypothetical event when computers could surpass the intelligence of humans. Imagine a computer that could re-write and correct its source code… makes you think of Skynet right? While this probably isn’t super new news to you, it’s predicted that we should see technological singularity this lifetime.
I’d like to share an interesting series of videos by Jeff Hawkins that gives you his take on where things are at the moment. The founder of Palm, Jeff Hawkins, solves the mystery of Artificial Intelligence and presents his theory at the RSA Conference 2008. He gives a brief tutorial on the neocortex and then explains how the brain stores memory and then describes how to use that knowledge to create artificial intelligence. This lecture is insightful and his theory will revolutionize computer science.
