RE: [agi] Religion-free technical contentEdward Porter:I don't know about you, but I think there are actually a lot of very bright people in the interrelated fields of AGI, AI, Cognitive Science, and Brain science. There are also a lot of very good ideas floating around.
Yes there are bright people in AGI. But there's no one remotely close to the level, say, of von Neumann or Turing, right? And do you really think a revolution such as AGI is going to come about without that kind of revolutionary, creative thinker? Just by tweaking existing systems, and increasing computer power and complexity? Has any intellectual revolution ever happened that way?
