Artificial intelligence is on the point of taking humankind into a new age. The turning point will come when AI has advanced so far that it matches human intelligence in every way. Human intelligence, whilst slower in some respects, is still more flexible than AI.

But, once AI has caught up, it will take no time before surpassing humans by a huge distance. That scary prospect is termed artificial superintelligence (ASI).

In “The Sentient Robot: The Last Two Hurdles in the Race to Build Artificial Superintelligence” Rupert Robson argues that we are now just two conceptual hurdles from developing ASI. The first of the two hurdles is to embed consciousness in AI, thereby giving us a sentient robot. This will enable ASI to see the world through our eyes. The second of the two hurdles concerns the developmental step needed in AI design to achieve human-level flexibility in thought.

A new world is about to open up before us. We need to understand it and prepare for it.
