Having fulfilled the DeepMind individuals in my function with the MIT Media Lab, I understand their definition of “intellect” is so rough that it does not extend past the abstract calculations which an algorithm could attain, and totally fails to realize human intellect is embodied and dispersed throughout our bodily selves — and really between them, at the mirror neurons that fire at sympathy once we see a priest or assist an injured buddy. Simply speaking, it is not just sad, but it is bad science.
Artificial intelligence of this type Google promotes can perform even — in a pinch — recognise Bach or even Picasso. It cannot create Bach or even Picasso, less comprehend the complexity of societal forms and civilization which made their lives possible.
When we entrust the education of people who will establish the future connection of machines and people into a business whose core belief is that all of human experience could be reproduced by algorithms, we all can expect is that global warming wipes out us prior to the machines perform.
