A sharp dichotomy has emerged in the big debate about where technology is taking us (or vice versa). In one high-profile camp are technologists and scientists sounding the alarm about the perils of artificial intelligence. Elon Musk likens AI’s emergence to “summoning the demon,” calling it the biggest single threat to our survival. Stephen Hawking…

Systems thinking is very useful to curb your own intuitive enthusiasms. Here I graphed the relatedness of 34 sentences from science and tech leaders about their fear of #AI and found concern about regulation to be most central. This is a conclusion that I don't think I would have arrived at otherwise—and not one that has been widely expressed.
We cannot stop small groups of rogue humans, but we can spread the benefits of these technologies, and the knowledge about these technologies as widely as possible. Our true protection is in our generosity.

In Kahneman’s parlance, these images of robots and renegade AIs are available to our imaginations. The challenge for the technology industry then is to make visions like Hawkins’ intelligent machines more available, more vivid, and more compelling than “The Terminator.” An assist from Hollywood would be helpful as well.
Reacting to the threats of AI is an attempt by technologists and scientists to regulate themselves before governments do it for them, and not as well.

It is very interesting that Numenta thinks that weights are much less important than rewiring. I'm wondering, though, whether what some call weight might be better described as permanence. I'm coming at this from the perspective of certain memristor technologies, specifically conductive bridge RAM. We have been trying to tout that we can tune over an order of magnitude, or so, continuously, but at the higher resistance values, the bridge is very fragile, and can disolve readily. At lower resistance values, the bridge is more stable. This may say something about how we learn- that if we don't persist at certain activities for some time, then learning won't occur because we haven't reached a permanence threshold. Just a thought in the middle of the night.

Leading the new era of machine intelligence
Introduction

Numenta is leading the new era of machine intelligence.  We have developed a cohesive theory, core software technology, and numerous software applications all based on principles of the neocortex.  Our innovative work delivers breakthrough capabilities and demonstrates that a computing approach based on biological learning principles can do things that today’s programmed computers cannot do.
