My video discussion with Socrates on Singularity Weblog

The following is the video interview I had with Socrates on Singularity Weblog on March 4th, 2017.
This was one of the most interesting and exciting interviews I had since I started to work on GoodAI and I must admit that I enjoyed it a lot. Socrates is a great interviewer and has an excellent view on general AI.

During our conversation, I had the opportunity to discuss and analyze several topics not only related to general artificial intelligence but much more.

Summary:
  • my driving force and my desire to understand the universe
  • my journey from game development into general artificial intelligence
  • my goal to maximize humanity’s future options
  • the mission, people and strategy behind GoodAI
  • the General AI Challenge
  • teleology and the direction of the Universe
  • adaptation, intelligence, evolution and survivability
  • roadmaps, milestones and obstacles on the way to AGI
  • the importance of theory of intelligence
  • AGI architectures we are working on
