Abstract

The specter of Artificial Intelligence (AI) looms before us, continuously growing in power, soon to match, and then exceed human capabilities. To explore this, we read and discussed books by experts, and learned about the exponential nature of technological progress and the difficulties of halting or even slowing it. Technological improvements trend towards an autonomous AI capable of replicating, if not exceeding human thought and interaction, a complex adaptive system with an input stream, isomorphic model of reality and output mechanism, fully capable of passing the Turing Test. How a system is organized is a key determinant of the processes it can perform, so achieving processes such as intelligence and self- awareness requires suitably organized systems in proper environments, one such system being the brain currently reading this. AI will use advances in evolutionary algorithms, recursion, machine learning and self-organizing computational networks to develop the complex organization necessary for advanced cognitive functioning. These systems are evolving, and it is up to us to learn as much as we can about them.
