Rodney Brooks at the Singularity Summit about strong AI (here is the video and here is the transcript):
“Before we have the fully general one [general AI], we’re going
to have one that’s almost that good, in the same way
that chimpanzees are almost human, gibbons are almost
chimpanzees, etc. So, it’s not going to happen accidentally.”
There are two kind of “almost AIs”: almost intelligent robots (for war, household or care), or almost intelligent NPC in MMROPGs. What do you think is more likeley?
