Welcome to my latest project!
For the last 2 years I’ve been writing a story about a man who writes a story about a man (me) who wants to make Artificial Intelligence laugh.
To do so, I’ll need to bring together 5 different areas: comedy, consciousness, telepathic machines, virtual reality, and of course, artificial intelligence.
Over the course of 12 lectures (and chapters) I’ll explore each one; and postulate how we can create a new test of consciousness for both humans and Ai alike.
I know, writing comedy for self-aware Artificial Intelligence is a niche market right now, seeing as none exist…yet. But with the arrival of telepathic machines within a decade, as Peter Gabriel says, “Perhaps we will need to create “swimming lessons” to teach us how to be comfortable being open, honest and exposed—that we can be ready to float and navigate in these waters of visible thought.”
Yes, in an age of telepathic machines with which we can interact mind-to-mind with self-aware Artificial Intelligence, you are going to need a ‘School of Thought’…
As visionary Peter Gabriel says…“the essence of who we are is contained in our thoughts and memories, which are about to be opened like tin cans and poured onto a sleeping world. Inexpensive scanners would enable all of us to display our own thoughts and access those of others who do the same. The consequences and ethics of this have barely been considered.”
Those not comfortable swimming in these transparent waters are not going to flourish. Perhaps we will need to create “swimming lessons” to teach us how to be comfortable being open, honest and exposed—that we can be ready to float and navigate in these waters of visible thought.”
I would go further and say this technology will be the stepping stone into mind to mind communication with Artificial Intelligence too.
