The HUMANOBS Workshop is focused on the impending paradigm shift from constructionist to constructivist methodologies for building artificial intelligence. Constructionist refers to traditional top-down software design, which places serious limitations on scaling, while Constructivist refers to self-organizing systems that manage their own growth.
Update, August: Please note that the final program agenda is subject to change. Final details are kept up to date on the official HUMANOBS workshop website. Continue reading HUMANOBS Workshop on Constructivist Methodologies for Building Artificial Intelligence
A valued colleague of ours, researcher & author Dr. Ben Goertzel, was recently interviewed by PhysOrg.com journalist Stuart Dambrot, discussing questions put forth by Goertzel at the Transhumanism Meets Design conference: (A) “How can we design a world (virtual or physical) so that it supports ongoing learning and growth and ethical behavior?” (B) “How can we design a mind so that it takes advantage of the affordances its world offers?””
