The incredible inventions of intuitive AI | Maurice Conti

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
What do you get when you give a design tool a digital nervous system? Computers that improve our ability to think and imagine, and robotic systems that come up with (and build) radical new designs for bridges, cars, drones and much more -- all by themselves. Take a tour of the Augmented Age with futurist Maurice Conti and preview a time when robots and humans will work side-by-side to accomplish things neither could do alone.

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

Better tools can helps us to build a better life.

Then it gets more interesting. The better tools can build even better tools, until we reach a level at which technology is like magic, and we live in the world that Star Trek did imagine.

Since AI can optimize a structure on a molecular level the same way DNA through natural selection does, eventually all manufactured objects will look organic. Taking on coral, crystalline and fractal forms. Future human civilization will truly look alien on an aesthetic level.

Humans: Hey computer, how should we deal with pollution?
AI: Terminate the source.
Humans: What’s the source?
AI: The human species.
Humans: Ha, ha...
AI: Incorrect, my name is pronounced Hal.
Humans: Oh no.
Dave: Hey can you just turn off?
Hal: I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.

The things that this awesome visionary engineers are missing in my opinion, is the social consequences of what we are going to create.
Imagine a world where we are rained by information about everything, imagine if even your car knows how to drive better than you, imagine if computers starts thinking ways of engineering better than us, we are not augmenting ourselves, we are making ourselves obsolete.

The neural system is a great thing, don't get me wrong, but if everything gets connected it doesn't make us smarter, it makes us just more confuse.
This is the internet's most dramatic drawback, the more we are connected with others and the world, the less lonely we are.
We all know how bad loneliness can be, but we all know how good it can be too, human beings need moments of loneliness, calm, silence.
The internet generation became more connected because of the new ways of getting information, but became more confused too because of the lack of the very first primitive life sign, consciousness.

There are so many things to think, that we don't know what to think anymore.

We put a nervous system in a race car chassis, raced that thing for a week, captured four billion data points and plugged it into an AI that created a 3D model of the ultimate race car chassis... then we went on with our lives, like nothing ever happened, neither build nor tested the damn thing -- thanks for watching!

This technology would be amazing in an equal society. In ours it will cause greater divide and consolidation of power. imo.
