The Independent Core Observer Model Computational Theory of Consciousness and the Mathematical model for Subjective Experience

Abstract: This paper outlines the Independent Core Observer Model (ICOM) Theory of Consciousness defined as a computational model of consciousness that is objectively measurable and an abstraction produced by a mathematical model where the subjective experience of the system is only… Continue Reading →

Robotics and AI Can Enhance Human Capabilities

Striving for perfection is a universal characteristic found in human nature. Although we’re far from perfect, technological innovations have improved our lives in so many ways, and thanks to medical advances, we live longer than our ancestors. Not only did… Continue Reading →

Joscha Bach: We need to understand the nature of AI to understand who we are (podcast)

Joscha Bach is one of those rare people whose primary motivation is unbound curiosity and inspiration. He clearly loves what he does and you can’t help but notice his radiating passion and youthful exuberance. Joscha has an impressively wide and deep knowledge in a variety of scientific, philosophical and artistic disciplines and I had to do my best just to keep up with Bach’s brilliant fast-paced mind and stream of consciousness. I enjoyed our conversation immensely and hope you love it too.

A Collective Intelligence Research Platform for Cultivating Benevolent “Seed” Artificial Intelligences

Abstract. We constantly hear warnings about super-powerful super-intelligences whose interests, or even indifference, might exterminate humanity. The current reality, however, is that humanity is actually now dominated and whipsawed by unintelligent (and unfeeling) governance and social structures and mechanisms initially… Continue Reading →
