Robert Bradbury on 2007

This AI Prediction was made by Robert Bradbury in 2007.


Predicted time for AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:

But if you are asking whether there is this holy grail of AI that can transcend human intelligence I question whether that is feasible. […]If you want to know when you can have robots that can work in most low-paying jobs, I think probably around 2025-2040.



Opinion about the Intelligence Explosion from Robert Bradbury:



Flycer’s explanation for better understanding:



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

One does not need AI to solve the problems of significantly increased human longevity or nanotechnology. Insights and tools we currently have can deal with those problems. I would even argue that inexpensive AGIs pose significant risks due to their abuse potential


Flycer’s Secondary Explanation:

AI is not necessary to address the issues of increased human longevity and nanotechnology. We already have the necessary tools to tackle these problems. Inexpensive AGIs may pose a risk due to their potential for misuse.
