Chip Walter on 2007

Predicted time for AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:

If we’re using the Turing test, 2030-2050, but I qualify that by saying that even if an AI can pass as a human in such a test, it will still be a long way from human level



Opinion about the Intelligence Explosion from Chip Walter:

The truth is, the moment an AI equals our intelligence, it’s over. Surpassing will be instantaneous and we will have little evolutionary significance
