GoodAI CEO Marek Rosa on the General AI Challenge and comment on the youtuber's video

Comment: While it is true that intelligence can be beat in certain scenarios, it is the key to surpass unevolvable roadblocks in the design of an organism.    You see animals evolving to be faster, to fly higher, to see further, yet it is our machines that surpass them in most if not all categories, at the very thing they specialize.

With advanced synthetic biology, we will be able to design organisms far beyond anything that has evolved.     Unless there is something like spontaneous wormholes into other universes actually being made by nature, or some other means of surviving the end of the universe, it is intelligence that can if there is a way find a way to survive the end.

Out of all the solutions by evolution, there is only one that allows you to eventually intelligently design and modify the underlying genetic code arbitrarily allowing for access to all possible evolvable and unevolvable phenotypes .   Only technology, enabled by intelligence, allows you to sequence all organisms, take their benefits, combine them, and even transcend them.

Nice Comment regards aging at kurzweilai

Aubrey is trying to drum-up funding.
As he should, we have animals lasting for multiple centuries, and their tissues showing no signs of aging, yet here we are dying after a few decades riddled with disease.
We know that lifeforms can live even for several millenia, and even tens of millenia, it is likely tissue composed of cells can be made indefinitely lasting and self renewing. Nothing in physics seems to stop this possibility. We all have a gun pointed to our heads, every single human has a ticking time bomb in the design of their body, yet almost none care or do something about it, because COUGH HEAVEN COUGH. Irrational, simply irrational.-C
