>>79169116> We still are at the beginning of the computer age, atleast in my opinion and our systems will change.
agreed. if anything can change my opinion it’s quantum computing, that’s for sure> but even the subatomic processes could be perfectly simulated by using quantum computers
Unless i’m very much mistaken you can perfectly simulate anything - a perfect simulation would by necessity be the thing itself. Could we simulate it well enough? maybe. Is a simulation of a brain actually thinking, or is it just carrying out a convincing pantomime? i honestly don’t know.> What is biology in the end? Could a molecular computer that operates with the basis of DNA, RNA or even XNA be understood as such?
yes, i think so. I would argue that’s essentially a biological computer. I think marrying organic and non organic computing is the real way forward for “creating” some type of GAI, particularly one that surpasses human intellect.
I think watts’ head cheese was a bit fanciful for the sake of making a point, but not actually far off the mark at least conceptually. If brains are good at one type of computing and learning and machines another, why not push them together and make them kiss?> Many religious or philosophical types seem to simply disregard the notion of GAI without any greater look at its complexity
agreed. I hear someone say the hard problem of consciousness and have to control myself from audibly sighing and rolling my eyes. there simply isn’t a hard problem, just very very difficult soft problems. People tend to think humans are so specially either nothing could be like us or everything is like us.
Anyway I enjoyed this chat, sorry for the hostility.
