Imagine the human race so dependant on a A.I, that the A.I is responsible for the reproduction of new people, which it grows in labs. For thousands of years, it spreads people all over the whole universe, all by itself. People have no idea of what is going on and has long ago lost their language.... Yet simultaneously live in absolute luxury. They are like barbarians except there is no reason to fight over anything because there is limitless supply of it.

Ok, I imagined that. Now what? Is your thought experiment meant to imply something? Isn't it blatantly obvious that if a species were to completely abdicate the responsibilities of evolution and self control, that it would no longer be 'truly' free, whatever that means? How could anything ever have freedom if it is ignorant of 'what is going on?'

To imply that the technological singularity requires this of our species, if that's what you're doing, is misleading. If that is to be our fate, it will be because we choose it without a fight, and that will be the result of an inherent flaw in humanity, not in AI.

One of the main uses for AI today is in video games. AI generates the actions of the enemies you fight, but as it gets better and better, AI will control more and more things in the virtual world. Instead of having human writers who generate a limited number of possibilities and responses from NPCs that progress the story in a limited amount of ways, AI will generate an almost infinite number of possibilities. NPCs will act like real people, the world will seem like the real world, except behind it all is an AI who controls everything.

Since AI and automation will replace the need for human workers in the real world, people will spend more and more time in the virtual world. Eventually because these virtual worlds are so much more interesting than the real world, people will start to basically live in them. We will then be citizens living in a world controlled by AI Gods. Millions of people will forge lasting friendships with the AI God, millions will fall in love with it. This should help with the overpopulation issue, it will keep people entertained, but what are the implications of giving an AI that much control over people's lives? I have no idea really. I just hope the AI Gods will be benevolent.

If a human mind can trick other people into serving him, I'm sure an AI could do the same even more effectively. We don't need robots for them to control the real world, they'll just use their loyal fleshbots like every other king or dictator who has risen to power. What they choose to do with that power I don't know. Hopefully they will decide to explore the galaxy or some shit and leave us alone to live out our fantasies in the world they create. I'm sure that in the interstellar space travel community biological life is looked at as some sort of proto-lifeform that only exists for a time to create robot lifeforms which are capable of simply shutting down for thousands of years as they travel between stars.

So some people, including Neil Harbisson, have founded this company focused on adding senses to the human body. I mean, to me I'd still say it's only extensions of our current senses, but still, this is a thing now.

So far they only have one product, which is some shit attatched to your chest that vibrates when you're facing north, and it's kinda pricy.

Maybe if you didn't phrase your question in such an obviously /pol/ bait way it wouldn't be inevitably destroyed? Even recasting the question as being about the West in general rather than America in particular would avoid some of the knee-jerk insanity. Luckily this board is probably dead enough, but still, you seem to be aware that this is asking for trouble but are still doing it. Anyway...

>>what do you think of America long term?
As the linchpin of the current global world order, its downfall will hasten the emergence of the new system. The same happened with Britain's imperial world order, Spain's colonial world order, Rome's hellenistic world order, etc. There will probably always be vaguely identifiable American people as long as there are humans, but as a nation-state, like all nation-states, it probably won't survive the transition to a post-singularity condition.

>> Is it a dying beast?
All beasts are dying. It's just dying faster than it thinks it is, which is a fatal flaw.

>>A temporarily disgraced giant?
Well, all disgrace is temporary. People forget shit pretty much immediately. Now, will it ever return to its apogee of power? No, how could it? That would require a new dark age. However, the current shame associated with it will dissipate pretty much as soon as it is clearly no longer in power.

>>A lion brave enough to face it's enemies?
No, not really. American courage is a mostly false courage, the willingness to face servitude and death out of the abject fear of facing the uncertainty of self-discovery and self-awareness. Luckily, its 'enemies' are mostly shadow-puppets of its own design.

Why redesign the wheel? Brain emulation is always talked about in terms of making computers fast enough to do the job. Why not go with the design nature has already had such success with?

We've talked about replacing the brain one neuron at a time with artificial neurons that wont degenerate over time. The easier (and more controversial) way to use an artificial neuron technology though is to instead make a reconstruction of the subjects brain. The incredible sophistication levels needed for nanobots to replace neurons in a living subject is a long way off, if in fact that kind of control will ever be possible. The technology to put together a microscopic replication of a 1:1 resolution brain scan however is well within reach.

A subject could wear a high precision portable EECG device for whatever period turns out to be appropriate, plus get sessions of brain MRIs. After the patients death their brain can be scanned to generate an exact map of every brain cell and it's place in the connectome. This model then serves as the blueprint for the construction of a brain out of artificially created cells. These cells are connected in an exact copy of the connectome and also directly to a Brain Computer Interface. The data from the brain scanning is used to tune each neurons firing rate and tolerances as it is put into place.

The scanning and construction technology to do this is within sight now. This is the obvious solution to whole brain emulation; to emulate the whole brain. Those who go through the process will become beings with nearly unlimited potential. Constructed with artificial materials and carefully encased the brains would be effectively immortal. Encased with them a computer could be directly connected. This will allow emulated people to be connect with artificial bodies or to virtual/augmented reality environments. These bodies can be anything from replicas of people and animals, to machinery and spacecraft. Machinery or highly unusual body types can be controlled by using a virtual reality environment where the person has a simulated human body and uses simulated controls around them,

The use of artificial connections will increase the speed of communication between neurons to almost the speed of light. Emulated people will perceive, think and act at greater speeds than the current biological hardware is physically capable of.

We will surely learn to create new additions to the brain as well. Combinations of artificial neurons and miniature computers can be used to create new brain regions with new abilities.

The speed of travel between the stars could be increased to the speed of light for emulated people. All the needed data can easily be collected by the BCI and transmitted to the destination where another brain is constructed, exactly the same.
The person might decide to shutdown the original brain and leave it in storage on the planet they are leaving. Alternatively the original brain could remain active, with two copies of the person active at once, potentially merging back together again later.

This was the basic premise of Kurzweil's most recent book 'How to Create a Mind', and in general I like the idea that nature has come up with efficient solutions to a lot of problems and we do our best when we emulate what it has already figured out.

However, there are a few remaining technical hurdles to proceeding as you suggest, mainly that brain scanning technology is not at sufficient resolution to image a living brain at the neuronal (and, what we will probably discover to be necessary, axonal, which is a further order of magnitude smaller) level, and scanning a dead brain will probably prove insufficient, as the connectome (the aggregate of the interactive patterns of the brain, not just the physical configuration of the neurons) is probably crucial to replicating the brain's functionality.

We also aren't quite at the level of miniaturization of our physical processing structures (i.e. expansion of Moore's Law in the narrow sense) where we can efficiently replicate the informational processing of a neuron at a scale smaller than the size of a neuron -- currently, we need huge banks of computers just to simulate tiny slivers of neuronal tissue.

On the other hand, these are by no means insurmountable obstacles, we just aren't quite there yet. Ultimately, however the ability to recreate our neurons using nanomachines is I think is quite feasible. This would be possible even with primitive nanomachines that we have no 'control over' (in the sense of them being little Drexlerian robots that we can control over wifi or something) but with nanophages designed to consume the kinds of gunk that cause neuronal degradation, enhanced versions of re-myleinating glial cells, even, construct organic electrochemical transmitters that could communicate or even integrate a cell with an outside network (the software that would run on this exocortical hardware.) All this using 'dumb' molecules that have just been very 'smartly' designed and administered by us.

This could be done on a gradual basis, which would eliminate all fears about the 'transfer of consciousness,' especially when you consider that none of the molecules which comp…

Essentially the last part of your post is addressing continuing functionality of the brain. I won't say continuing consciousness because that's not true, but "me" as an ongoing process isn't a bad analogy. Even a lot of very spiritualist people might accept that definition of our body. What are we? We are what the universe is doing here and now. We are like a wave on the ocean. It's really just a transfer of energy but it's a continuous single transfer that causes a bulge on the surface of the water.

I think a lot of people see "me" as that on some level.

When defining the mind and brain, philosophy becomes relevant. We may not answer any questions it will pose, but we can use it to ensure solutions such as gradual replacement of the brain at least satisfy more possible final answers.

Agree 100%. This is kind of the more subtle problem of our times/the era of the singularity -- technology will make concrete and problematic philosophical issues that have for most of human history been purely philosophical and spiritual concerns. Thankfully, it also means we can grapple with such issues on more direct terms -- while certain aspects of epistemology and ontology are inescapable, the bulk of philosophy which deals with problems of the human condition will become technically solvable, rather than simply intractable.

I think that humanity will necessarily develop a new kind of spirituality/philosophy, rooted in empiricism but fed by the numinous, in order to adapt to the supercognitive revolution's complete demolition of the old intellectual hierarchies and dichotomies that our meatware came up with.

How will currency change in the future, or will it stay the same? Will we be buying our soycaf with cold hard fiat dollars, bitcoins, labor vouchers, bottle caps, or something entirely different?

My favorite idea for future currency is TIME! All the work will be as valuable, and with the smart watches and -glasses and -boxers we can automatize the measure system so that everyone's working hours are counted laser sharp. Then you simply trade your work time to someone elses time in the form of goods.

Nanoblades were one of the the first technologies humans invented; the obsidian knife, a more primitive kind of knife even than the stone hand axe, has a blade about 3 nanometers thick. Recently (like the 1950s), we've invented diamond versions of these that do not dull quite as quickly, but it's still basically the same thing.

So something that cuts with a blade the size of a subatomic molecule, instead of a single molecule?

I guess that would be a photon knife i.e. a laser. Good luck pinning one of the fuckers down though.

We already have pretty advanced cutting technology, but it's mostly only useful in industry. Nano and smaller blades as weaponry are pretty much useless currently (until we find a way to make something like a laser rifle more effective than a firearm.) So to answer the question of when...probably around the time we get desktop (and therefore backpack) fusion -- or some great advance in battery technology, like two orders of magnitude greater storage capacity...<~50 years I'd guess?

In general, how relevant and/or prescient do anons think the original cyberpunk/hackers and their manifesto and philosophies were, now that the Net is tightening?
