Artificial Intelligence

Do you think it is possible? Could computers really take over the world if they ever got to intelligent?

From a cognitive science perspective, not likely for a long time. From an engineering perspective, in possibly less time.

From right now, it's very difficult to predict the timescale of advances in technology and therefore the future, but it looks like a long way off. But the things that advance quickly/slowly are never the things that you expect.

You have to define what you mean by AI. You also possibly have to accept a certain view of what human intelligence is.

One day it will be possible with ultra powerful quantum computers, but thats a way off yet.

Memristors offer a good power/processing ratio. Currently HP are using them for the creatively named "The Machine" which I think is a server of some kind. But they allow for lots of parallel processing, storage and computation in the same component. - Much like Neuron.

It's taken 13.7 billion years for them to get to their present infantile stage. they'll get there.

No. As above, taken that long for humans to get to their infantile stage. how about real biological intelligence first?

google the Jinn ternary logic processor which is being financed through the NXT asset exchange

A computer will never be able to think for its self, it will always be reliant on human input
