For purposes of this post my definition of a “Synth” is a humanoid robot with at least the intellectual and emotional intelligence level of an average human. Their appearance may or may not be human, and will be determined by use case and local regulations.
I love this post. Great writing Ben!
Thanks for the clarification. Great article by the way. I'm 70years young and would love to see a few of your predictions come to pass. Thanks again.
Thank you for an insightful article. I have always enjoyed your articles. you think way ahead of others who lack the vision you have.
If as you predict Synths are coming (i am not doubting you!) much sooner than we expect or want, it is really worrisome of what is going to happen to the human relationships as we know. With the advent of cell phones, we have already lost touch with connecting to people and there is an increasing tendency to feel isolated. This will definitely accelerate the decline of human population and unintended consequences.
What's AGI. Thanks.
