This AI Prediction was made by Gary Cottrell in 2007.
Predicted time for AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:
(Hover for explanation)Types of advanced artificial intelligence: AGI (AI that can perform many tasks at a human-level), HLMI (more advanced AI that surpasses human intelligence in specific areas), and Transformative AI (AI that could significantly impact society and the world)
When they get to the level of being our best friends (or worst enemies) I would guess 2070-2100, to pick a reasonable number
Opinion about the Intelligence Explosion from Gary Cottrell:
Flycer’s explanation for better understanding:
Humans and robots are becoming increasingly intertwined in our lives. It is estimated that by the year 2100, robots will have become our best friends or worst enemies. This prediction is based on the current rate of technological advancement and the increasing presence of robots in our lives.
The future of humanity with AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:
