With the current basis of our science and technology, Artificial Intelligence in any foreseeable time will only address the augmented and narrow intelligence aspect.
We will further enhance the capability of human sensory power for the regular and challenged of the world. And enhance value in niche areas. This may also be the best use of the current state of AI work in the world.
For the true Artificial General Intelligence, the roots are to be found in Philosophy, Spiritual Sciences. Most likely in ancient scriptures of wisdom. It needs for us in this generation of scientists and technologists to shed the false ego and study those scriptures keeping aside the religious and cultural affiliations.
We haven’t even fully cracked the nature vs nurture puzzle. Genetic knowledge, Morals, Ethics,Reinforced learning, expert systems incl parents to teachers to life in general…
In my humble opinion, Artificial General Intelligence is not just another technological problem to solve but its about understanding human and leads to/by wisdom. It is not going to happen anytime soon with the current direction.
AGI is the ultimate pursuit but i believe the world will explore and benefit more from augmented / narrow intelligence in the next few decades.
Today i received a message extolling the virtues of Punjab and as a tribute to its great son, Maharaja Ranjit Singh on his birthday (13th Nov 1780). Maharaja Ranjit Singh is certainly one of the great sons of this Karma Bhoomi called Bharat. The thing that irked me in the message was a reference to how king Porus of Punjab dared to stop Sikander in his world conquest. It was mainly about the use of the words Sikander and Porus, since both are
సనాతన ధర్మాచరణలో ముఖ్యమయినది కర్మానుష్టానము.
ఈ కర్మానుష్టానమునకు ఉపకరణము దశేంద్రియ మనోబుద్ధ్యహంకారచిత్తమైన భౌతికకాయము.
దీనికి సంస్కరణపరులు మాతాపితృలు, ఆచార్యులు, బంధువులు, సన్నిహితులు, అతిథులు.
వీరంతా సదా మాననీయులు.

My in-laws are moving to another home this week. This morning i enquired with my mother-in-law about the progress of the packing. She said it is pretty much done since a lot of junk that got piled up over the years has been discarded now. She was happy that the moving process helped them clear unnecessary junk that got piled up over the years.
It got me thinking. Isn’t it the same with our lives in general as well?
While chatting random topics while sitting in my living room, the discussion moved to the Lord Padmanabha swamy’s picture on the wall.
The picture of Lord Padmanabha is always a blissful sight for me for several reasons.
Recently in a discussion with friends, it was observed that many in software engineering and other professionals are posting and talking about philosophy and spirituality (not necessarily religion).
For the past few years as I study deeper into software engineering, science, technology, life sciences and society i noticed that there is no difference between these topics and spirituality.
In fact all of them were nothing but different aspects of the same study. Personally it was rather easy for me to understand and relate to the topics if I understood the essence, the common sense thread.
It is like “reaching the point where all roads end from where all roads began”.
