Geek stuff, sci-fi... Technologists and investors gather at the two-day Singularity Summit in San Francisco to discuss the benefits and risks of advancing artificial intelligence--and what to do in the event that machines one day out-think humans.

more AI hype

Its funny that with the imminent disaster of greenhouse warming and the contra sun dimming problem masking that that we are even talking about replacing the human race with AI minds. If humanity survives another hundred years with the earth in the same shape as today, that would be truly far more amazing than seeing AI start to become human like (I don't mean Kismet like).

Also I can't quite equate cochlear or other electronic implants with AI, its mostly DSP cleaning up signals.

The Stanford story about Stanley was from my point of view another mostly DSP story, crunching camera images down to find a path with ever better hardware available.
