Predicted time for AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:

The whole new game level of greater than human AI could be in the 2030-2050 timeframe or a tad before depending upon when we can use molecular nanotech or other tech to make a lot of optical, quantum computronium.



Opinion about the Intelligence Explosion from Brian Wang:

AGI pushing those frontiers will also still find it slow going even if they are faster than us.


Flycer’s explanation for better understanding:

Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is pushing the boundaries of what is possible, but progress is slow. Even if AGI is faster than humans, it will still take time to make progress. AGI is still in its early stages of development.



The future of humanity with AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:

People will have slip-streamed in behind with tight integration and adopted other enhancements.


Flycer’s Secondary Explanation:

1. People are following the lead of others and adopting new enhancements.2. These enhancements are being tightly integrated into existing systems.3. This is known as slip-streaming.
