Superintelligence - EN:DE

Postby encode_decode » Sat Dec 02, 2017 12:07 pm

    I dont know why, perhaps because I am not super intelligent but:

    I have always imagined that a superintelligence would not encounter the problems that we the human race encounter and have encountered.

    The movie Soylent Green comes to mind. Efficient and utilitarian use of a commodity?

    I have never seen the movie so I looked it up on Wikipedia. Are you saying that an efficient and utilitarian use of a commodity is a super intelligent thing to do based on the definition I gave or that a superintelligence would exhibit this type of thought - I am leaning toward the former as a guess to what you meant - and perhaps both.

    A point that stood out in the Wikipedia article was contained within the plot to the movie and is as follows: The 20th century's industrialization led to overcrowding, pollution and global warming due to the greenhouse effect. It now has me wondering whether industrialization or overcrowding shows that we are intelligent at all - even though I intend some sarcasm, surely a superintelligence would be able to avoid such problems with forethought.

      But the point remains that you can't get at that meaning before grasping the surface meaning
      - which is to say there is always meaning.

      So, you reject negation? What's that make you exactly? What's your embraced position?




      Negation is like a scale, put an equal weight to counterbalance one on the other scale. But scales are deceptive and inaccurate and they do not eliminate each other, they merely tip the scale, and how long that lasts is only a measure of expediency. They remain and are constantly revalued.

        I recently read something similar to the following and is related somewhat to the Reality vs Perception thread:

        I envision that a superintelligence would know what the positions and velocities of every particle in the universe are in any given moment and be able to calculate their past and future arrangements too. Such an intelligence would find past and future alike "present to its eyes".

        I am not sure whether it is entirely necessary to go this far to define a superintelligence however.

            Such an intelligence would have serious issues. Not only would it require literally infinite memory capacity, but also more than infinite processing speed in order to keep up. And then to make it even worse, when such an intelligence realizes its own actions as a part of what is happening and will happen, the earlier concern for infinite processing ability suddenly seems infinitesimal in comparison. And even further, the issue of The Three Body Problem makes calculating many situations literally impossible, whether future or past.

              A superintelligence has to be more than the intelligence of even the most intelligent man in existence. Not only must it remember more but it must be able to process more and even think in a extra dimension or more - changing the general paradigm of mind that we currently adhere to.

                It is not necessary for me to take superintelligence as to be godlike - superintelligence just needs to be defined as something more intelligent than the human being to begin with because that is the benchmark we mainly use in philosophy - along with reality, existence, perception et cetera.

                Yes I agree such an intelligence would have serious issues and for the reasons that you mention and much much more.

                How then do we define a superintelligence? Can we say that a superintelligence is just our collective intelligence? or must there be a means to also process what we already know as in AI for example? Either way, a superintelligence is more than the intelligence of one human being because that is what we take as the benchmark for a regular intelligence. It may be true to say that not even the most intelligent person is a super intelligence.
