With the road rules, most of the situations would be resolved by first determining who is at fault. As for the siding in the rain, if the other car was stopped on the road it was in the wrong and will go down the cliff. The computer car should be driving to the conditions anyway, so hopefully nobody has to go off the cliff.
As for being an innocent victim of the computer's choice, just think how bad it is now! The computer may kill you to save lives, a regular driver may kill you because they were texting or changing stations or just got distracted. People are scared of the wrong thing here.

Movies like Her, Ex Machina and others keep us thinking.
I was watching the movie Her for the second time and I was fascinated again about the scene in which the main character played by Joaquin Phoenix got his new operating system with artificial intell...

This is a very familiar pattern. Every time someone finds a technology with obvious military applications, or ideal for control of the masses, they never mention it. Instead they say: "This will help us find cure for cancer and make peace in the world". Then 20 years later it becomes clear none of it is true.

Nick Bostrom: What happens when our computers get smarter than we are? #TED : http://on.ted.com/r0aHX
Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds — within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as "smart" as a human being. And then, says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: "Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make." A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we're building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will our smart machines hel...

As part of the "InnerTube" initiative, YouTube adopted deep learning neural network technology from the Google Brain project for better video recommendations... I've certainly noticed the difference!
To become a "destination" and keep mobile viewers hooked, YouTube realized it had to fix itself, from its development platform to its AI.

It has held true for decades. But that doesn't mean it'll stay put forever. #Moore's law biggest consequence for the industry isn't just faster performance.

Moore's law was a prediction which hasn't faltered even with time and circumstance. But is this law's hold finally coming to an end?

As long as the systems can be properly cooled. I don't see any end in the next 10 years to come.
I think heat is directly proportional to the speed of a processor

I think that with enough complexity, intelligence will emerge. I'm still waiting for "the Internet" (or) Google to say "hello world" of its own accord but I don't think it's that far away. Certainly less than ten years, see you then!

If you cut my arms and legs off, I'm still aware and intelligent. Keep cutting. Is a body actually necessary?!i don't think so

Learning, the ability to learn is the core of AI

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/05/150522105402.htm
Researchers have developed algorithms that enable robots to learn motor tasks through trial and error using a process that more closely approximates the way humans learn, marking a major milestone in the field of artificial intelligence.

Does transhumanist discussion, insignificantly related to current AI research, have a place in this community?

Vote yes if you want to talk about transhumanism, even if it has nothing to do with AI. Vote no if you want transhumanist discussion to only happen in relation to discussion of current AI research.

Why stop there? Why not go all the way to talk about exhumans?

Augment muscle, eyes, cognitive, dna, soon we need to reconcile with -- exhumans.

And yes, if/when the discuss ends up with exhumans, it will be relevant to AI research (full circle). Why? Because if you complete the transhumanist metamorphasis, and cross into exhumans -- that exhuman IS a form of artificial intelligence -- or at least a "way" to get there.

So what would that kind of AI be like, and how it will be different that the "normal" kind of AI -- perhaps we can learn something from this kind of inquisition?

Granted, it's a bit far fetched to even postulate....

Google to use AI on YouTube!

Interestingly, the article predicts that Google Brain (that's the AI behind this) "may someday be more complex than the human brain."

Google to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) for YouTube suggestions

There's a lot of competition out there for +YouTube right now, so to help differentiate itself, Google intends to use Artificial Intelligence (AI):

"Google is tapping into the Google Brain service, which may someday be more complex than the human brain. For now, though, it’s going to help wayward web wanderers find the best new videos to watch on YouTube"

Chinese search giant Baidu says it has invented a powerful supercomputer that brings new muscle to an artificial-intelligence technique giving software more power to understand speech, images, and written language.

Andrew Ng, Chief Scientist of Baidu, will be presenting at RE.WORK Deep Learning Summit on May 26-27. Join us there for more exciting news from Baidu: https://www.re-work.co/events/deep-learning-boston-2015

In other words: providing a controlled sensory input during the early stages, just as with kids.
To create a strong AI, we will first have to create and employ a gigantic AI-kindergarten. Check out my video for more details on what I have in mind:

I might add, that an interesting book that somewhat fits with the "structuring" part of "clear", "dark" and "opaque" levels of an AI would be Tor Norretranders' "The User Illusion" - https://books.google.at/books?id=1GxbZZ64KyUC&q=the+user+illusion&dq=the+user+illusion&hl=de&sa=X&ei=qDhUVbr_KsS0Ue7SgdgF&ved=0CCEQ6AEwAA

An example of the tarnishing of science in the AI area:

"...The latest example of the scientific hype machine is a paper that comes from Alexander Wissner-Gross, a research scientist and entrepreneur affiliated with Harvard and M.I.T. who, according to the bio on his Web site, has “authored 15 publications, been granted 19 issued, pending, and provisional patents, and founded, managed, and advised 5 technology companies, 1 of which has been acquired.” According to one report (by a well-respected science journalist), Wissner-Gross and his co-author, Cameron Freer, “have figured out a ‘law’ that enables inanimate objects to behave [in a way that] in effect allow[s] them to glimpse their own future. If they follow this law, they can show behavior reminiscent of some of the things humans do: for example, cooperating or using ‘tools’ to conduct a task.” A start-up called Entropica aims to capitalize on the discovery; the futurist Web site io9 and the BBC have both gushed about it....:

I can't say I've read it, but I've read articles and samples/excerts and watched his youtube/ted video on it. He's full of it. IMO.
