Amal Graafstra - Elon Musk Predicts AGI In 2025

Elon Musk is predicting AGI in 2025: should we celebrate this or be concerned? Amal Graafstra discusses AI, AGI, Ray Kurzweil's Technological Singularity, David Woods' "Economic Singularity" & more. Musk is has estimated a 50% chance that AGI will exist by the end of 2025, which in his words will perform cognitive tasks "better than any human can do". He is also predicting that AI could exceed the collective intelligence of all humans combined by 2029, whereas Ray Kurzweil predicted they'd match human intelligence and pass the Turing test by that date. Three months ago, Ray released a video reaffirming his prediction for AGI by 2029 and the Singularity for 2045. I went back to "The Singularity is Near" and the graphs show single human intelligence by that date - which puts Musk's prediction for collective human intelligence ahead of schedule. Overall I think Elon is aligned with Kurzweil's view of Artificial General Intelligence and the Singularity, but Musk appears more focused more on "functional AGI" based on performance completing tasks rather than Kurzweil's approach, which focused more on mapping and synthesizing the functions of the human mind. In the United States, The White House recently released the "The Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights" as a framework to protect humans from a number of technological threats, and the National Conference of State Legislatures reports that over 25 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia introduced artificial intelligence bills in 2023. The European Union also recently passed the "Artificial Intelligence Act", which bans the use of AI for applications that threaten threaten citizens’ rights, including biometric categorisation based on sensitive characteristics, untargeted scraping of facial images from video to create facial recognition databases, along emotion recognition in the workplace and schools, social scoring, predictive policing, and the manipulation or exploitation of human behaviour or exploits people’s vulnerabilities. Elon Musk's prediction as echoes expert opinion and widespread concerns over the fast pace of AI development, and regardless of legislation, it seems like we're moving into a world where humans simply can't compete. I believe Kurzweil and others have predicted a merger of human and machine in the future, which takes us into Amal's area of specialization. Amal Graafstra is a Book author, TEDx speaker, and CEO of biohacking companies Dangerous Things and VivoKey Technologies. Amal has various RFID and NFC implants in his body that open doors, start vehicles, unlocks his smartgun, and logs into computers. Prior to his current roles, Amal’s experience includes numerous exective & IT-related roles at firms including Walletmor, Everfind, the medical biotech company Morpheus, Atomic Mobile, Silicon Energy, and more.

Kevin Knuth - UAP Science vs. Stigma

Dr. Kevin Knuth discusses the AARO Historical Report, the role of scientific skepticism and impact of stigma, and describes UAP flight performance characteristics, warp-drives, interstellar travel & the ultraterrestrials. Dr. Knuth describes the work of German rocketry pioneer Hermann Oberth, who cited over 50 radar measurements back in 1954 that establish UFO speeds in excess of Mach 55, and you have said, "it was known 70 years ago that these things are flying at spacecraft speeds. Why do people always assume their spacecraft? It's simple, because they fly as fast as spacecraft do." He will also discuss the documented speeds & acceleration for UAP, which would liquify a human pilot & crush a traditional airframe. Also, as Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick & Avi Loeb have pointed out air ablation at those speeds would also be unsurvivable. Could UAP performance, along with what may be evidence of "gravitational lensing" in the 2013 Aguadilla video be hints that UAP are using some kind of warp-drive technology? Dr. Knuth will also discuss the possibilities of UAP interstellar travel without violating the speed of light, and the challenges of bridging the gap between SETI, NASA & UAP science. Dr. Kevin Knuth is a Professor of Physics at the University of Albany with over two decades of experience in machine learning algorithms for Astrophysics, Bayesian Probability Theory, Information Theory, Robotics, Signal Processing, Neuroscience, Nonlinear Dynamics, Quantum Mechanics, and many other areas. Kevin is the editor of the peer-review open-access journal “Entropy”, as well as being a member of the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies and co-investigator on a NASA-funded grant to study exoplanets. In September 2019 he published the landmark paper, “Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles” co-authored by Robert M. Powell and Peter Reali. In that paper, he described UAPs as reportedly being “structured craft that exhibit ‘impossible flight characteristics’.

Alejandro Rojas - UAP Science vs. Speculation

Alejandro Rojas discusses Enigma Labs, the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies, the AARO Historical Report, and the role of science in unraveling the mystery of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. Alejendro's colleague at the SCU, Robert Powell, wrote a detailed critism of the AARO Report on Twitter, concluding with the statement, "AARO should stick to its mission statement, leave science to scientists, meet its requirements as laid out by Congress, and stop its bickering with the claims of whether or not recovered ET craft exist. That is the job of Congress." Alejandro discusses the AARO report, and addresses the criticisms of Powell, and many others in the community towards AARO. Rather than simply jumping on a government bashing bandwagon, he delivers a deep, nuanced view of the report and the agency that released it that helps provide context on why & how it came to be. Alejandro has been into UFO research for a long time. He's talked with David Grusch, heard the James Lacatski claims of US possession of crash wreckage, and read Eric Davis' Wilson Memo. Unlike many in the community, he's not focused on unlocking government secrets, though - and he questions if digging into black projects is even the right approach. Ultimately, the science of UAP research matters more rumors & claims. If those turn into hard evidence, they may benefit science - but Alejandro isn't waiting around for a tight-lipped government to reveal it's secrets. He talks about the need for cooperation, collaboration, and above all, a focus on hard, tangible evidence that lets us all move forward with this research. Alejandro Rojas is a consultant for Enigma Labs, a data, research, and community platform dedicated to Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), and also a founding board member for the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU). Alejandro has been a freelance journalist focused on science, space, sci-fi, and UFOs. He maintains the website OpenMinds.tv, but you can also find his articles in the Huffington Post, Den of Geek, and the Roswell Daily Record, among other news outlets. Alejandro is considered an expert on the topic of UAP. He regularly appears in interviews with media organizations worldwide, including Politico, BBC, NBC, Fox, Coast to Coast AM, the Travel Channel, Syfy, National Geographic, and E!. Alejandro is the former Director of Operations for Open Minds Production, the host for Open Minds UFO Radio, editor and contributing writer for OpenMinds.tv, and emcee for the International UFO Congress. For several years Alejandro was the official spokesperson for the Mutual UFO Network as the Director of Public Education.

Debbie Ziegelmeyer - USO's & The MUFON Dive Team

Debbie Ziegelmeyer discusses Unidentified Submersible Objects, the Nimitz encounter & nuclear correlation, Catalina Island & Ensenada, and the Point Dume ocean anomaly off the coast of Malibu. In terms of documented military evidence, the majority of recent events seem to be connected to water. We have overlapping visual, sensor & radar footage from the Nimitz carrier group near Catalina Island in the Pacific, reports of training incursions by Ryan Graves in the W-72 training area off Virginia Beach in the Atlantic, radar data for UAP swarming the USS Omaha off the San Diego Coast, and US Customs footage of transmedium craft over Aguadilla in Puerto Rico. Submarine officers have recounted events that include phenomena such as strange underwater sounds, swift-moving objects detected by sonar, and instances of submarines being outmaneuvered by USOs - Unidentified Submersible Objects. From what I understand, this isn't as well documented as Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, but it's at least important enough to be a factor in naming AARO the "All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office". Debbie Ziegelmeyer is the MUFON Director of Underwater Research and Recovery. Debbie joined MUFON in 2000, and is currently a MUFON Star Team Investigator, the State Director of Missouri, a member of the MUFON Business Board of Directors, The Functional Director of Underwater Research and Recovery, a Benefactor, and Inner Circle member, and a MUFON Archivist. She is also a member of Ted Phillip's S.I.U./T.P.R.C. Team, and in 2004, organized the MUFON Dive Team along with Tom Ferrario current T.P.R.C. Team leader. Debbie has over 1200 completed UFO investigations, with over 860 of them being MUFON sighting reports. She also teaches a MUFON Field Investigator Dive Team course which instructs investigators in both in water and on shore responsibilities and protocols. Debbie has been a Roswell 1947 crash investigator for over 25 years, has been an annual Roswell, NM July Festival speaker, and has made several speaking appearances at the "UFO Watch Tower" in Hooper, Colorado, along with numerous speaking engagements at large MUFON events.

Jack Sarfatti - Warp Core Reactor

Dr. Jack Sarfatti discusses UAP Physics and the Warp Core Reactor created by Dr. Michael G. Anderson at Lawrence Livermore National Labs - an energy-generation device promising orders of magnitude increase of intense ion beam energies & respective radiation yields at a fraction of the size and cost of existing z‐ pinch class accelerators. Instead of traditional "relativistic rocket" equations, the Sarfatti "weightless warp-drive" concept utilizes gravitational metamaterials to create a low-power warp-drive based on the conventional & well-accepted principles of relativity theory. Jack's model for warp-drive propulsion also explains the reported flight performance of UAPs. The Warp Core Reactor applies the same relativistic principles to a concept for energy-generation capable of powering UAP Jack Sarfatti has a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, taught physics at San Diego State University, worked with David Bohm at the University of London's Birkbeck College and with Abdus Salam at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. Jack was the basis of the memorable time-travelling Dr. Emmett Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy, and the author of Super Cosmos (2005), Destiny Matrix (2002), Space: Time And Beyond II (2002), and the coauthor with Fred Alan Wolf and Bob Toben of Space-Time and Beyond: Toward an Explanation of the Unexplainable (1975).

David Brin - Dune vs. Foundation

He wrote the introduction to "Dune: Collector's Edition" and the conclusion to Asimov's Foundation series. Legendary science-fiction author David Brin discusses the new movies, TV-series, and classic thematic elements of Frank Herbert's Dune & Isaac Asimov's Foundation. In this interview, our focus is comparisons between the novel & cinematic adaptations of Dune & Foundation, based on "Gods & Rogues" in Tim O'Reilly's 1981 book, "Frank Herbert". Author Tim O’Reilly not only provided a point-by-point comparison of these two series, but outright says, "Dune is clearly a commentary on the Foundation trilogy. Herbert has taken a look at the same imaginative situation that provoked Asimov's classic—the decay of a galactic empire—and restated it in a way that draws on different assumptions and suggests radically different conclusions. The twist he has introduced into Dune is that the Mule, not the Foundation, is his hero." In addition to our comparison of plot & thematic elements, David will also discuss how Dune & Foundation approach the concepts of artificial intelligence, ecology, statistics & sociology, and other key aspects of both the film and novel versions. Finally, we'll be touching on David's YouTube critique, called "Dune, the Movie Good vs. Evil". One of the key points he made in this critique was that Frank Herbert was quietly testing the readers to see if they notice that the Atreides themselves are morally questionable. In "Good Vs. Evil" he said, "The duke is a good character, with a strong moral compass, but he nonetheless supports a cruel form of feudal society. As a reader or viewer, you may identify with the leaders of this fictional world, but if you were part of it you'd almost certainly be cannon-fodder." Dr. David Brin is the author of dozens of best-selling novels & short-stories, some of which have been adapted for film & television, as well as a variety of novels, including "Foundation's Triumph", published in 1999 on behalf of Isaac Asimov's estate, and the book we're discussing today - "Existence", published in 2012. David is a 2010 fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, helped establish the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination, serves on the advisory board of NASA's Innovative and Advanced Concepts group, and does futurism consulting for diverse organizations including the US Department of Defense, Procter & Gamble, SAP, Google & many more. David is the winner of numerous awards & honors, including the prestigious Nebula, Hugo & Locus awards for science fiction, and holds a PhD in Space Science from the University of California.

Brad Templeton - SETI, Dark Matter & Fermi

Brad Templeton discusses extraterrestrial civilizations, the SETI Project, and the Fermi Paradox - and suggests that humanity's implicit bias about the evolution of life is leading us to look for aliens in the wrong places. One hypothesis we'll be exploring is the “dark forest theory” that interstellar civilizations avoid detectable contact because of mutual distrust and potential threats to survival, and another is the "Zoo hypothesis" where ET leaves us alone to develop without interference. Other explanations are that most civilizations self-destruct before they become space-faring, and there's also the possibility that humanity is early or late to the game, and other civilizations simply aren't there. Brad has also suggested a new explanation: that advanced interstellar civilizations are focused on harvesting dark matter around the edges of galaxies, and simply won't be found where SETI is currently searching. Brad Templeton is a well-known software developer, internet entrepreneur, online community pioneer, publisher, writer, photographer, civil rights advocate, futurist, public speaker, educator and self-driving car consultant. Brad has a Bachelor's in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo, and a long career of remarkable achievements, including his current roles as a speaker, writer & consultant at Robocars.com, Chairman Emeritus of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Chair of Networks & Computers at Singularity University, and a former technical and board member at BitTorrent.com, self-driving car strategist at Google, advisor to Deep Map, Tilt Five, Quanenergy, and much more.

Gennady Stolyarov II - The Technological Singularity

The Technological Singularity is an event-horizon created by accelerating change that makes future predictions impossible - or does it? Gennady Stolyarov II discusses his remarkable vision of the Singularity, and explains why this isn't humanity's first such event, and likely won't be our last. Stolyarov views the Singularity as John Von Neumann did, and from this perspective claims we've already had 3 historical technological singularities: the agricultural revolution, the industrial revolution, and the information revolution. Based on advances in computing power, Vernor Vinge estimated the Singularity would happen between between 2005 and 2030. Eliezer Yukowsky predicted 2021, Ray Kurzweil said 2045, and recent polls by Nick Bostrom and Vincent C. Müller estimate a 2040 to 2050 timeframe. In terms of what comes next, Futurists like Ray Kurzweil have focused heavily on Artificial Intelligence and self-improvement AI Superintelligence, but Stolyarov believes this is only one component of a much larger change, and the Singularity itself will be the product of a massive convergence of technological change, not one specific breakthrough. Gennady Stolyarov II is an actuary, philosopher, science-fiction novelist, poet, amateur mathematician, composer, and Editor-in-Chief of The Rational Argumentator, Chairman of the US Transhumanist Party, and Chief Executive of the Nevada Transhumanist Party, which he helped to found. Gennady is the author of "Death is Wrong", an ambitious children’s book on life extension. He's also contributed numerous articles to the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, The Wave Chronicle, Brighter Brains Institute, Immortal Life, Enter Stage Right, Rebirth of Reason, The Liberal Institute, and several other notable publications. Gennady holds a number of professional designations in the insurance, actuarial, regulatory & compliance industries, and is the author of numerous well-known actuarial study guides, including "Practice Problems in Advanced Topics in General Insurance", along with the science-fiction novel, "Eden against the Colossus", a philosophical treatise "A Rational Cosmology", the play "Implied Consent", and a self-help treatise, "The Best Self-Help is Free".
