Grand theft consciousness: How quantum algorithms will backdoor human-level AI


The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, as the legend goes, was invented
when two oblivious young people walking around eating boring snacks
accidentally crashed into each other on a city street. Grab one
while you read about an even better mash-up: the one between
machine learning and quantum computers that’ll eventually,
accidentally lead to human-level AI. But first, behold the 1980s in
all its goofy glory: Now back to our electric dreams of sentient
machines that love, care, and think. The path there probably
won’t be unlike the one in the video above. Sure, it’s possible
some genius will have a…
