Mask’s "The Joe Rogan Experience" program hosted by comedian Joe Rogan, smoking and drinking, playing big treasure sword, can be said to be eyeball.
In fact, in the two and a half-hour podcast, Mask comprehensively answered his own values, especially the explanation of him firmly, "We live in simulation", think that human civilization is likely Like the game, it is part of many simulated civilizations.
Humans may live in oneHuge and advanced computer games
Mask’s "Matrix-Style Simulation" Theory is based on the fact that the universe has existed 13.8 billion years.
Because this universe has nearly 14 billion years of history, the history of human beings is less than 10,000 years, so this time is enough for other civilization. He believes that the older civilization is likely to be our Creator and compare real life as a progress in the past decades.
"From the statistical perspective, there is a possibility that there is a civilization in such a long time, and they have found a very credible simulation method. Once the situation exists, then they build their own virtual multiple space is just a time. The problem. "
In fact, many people have mentioned that many people think that this is true, can create this simulation experiment, and they like to create "toys", and even create the universe is possible, this It is the low dimension of human creature, like high dimensions, how they created, we can’t imagine, because human thinking is always on a certain basis, we are hard to break through.
Mask also said that the analogical arguments are very sufficient, and also remind us that we don’t try to speed up the evolution of civilization, otherwise it will make the boundaries ambiguous, so that civilization is ending.
"One of these two things will happen. Because we exist, we are likely to be in the simulation."
He said that if it is this situation, then "Basic Reality" "" Basic Reality "that is used to simulate our real life may be very boring.
This is not Mask’s first sharing this idea, and he said on the Recode’s Annual Code Conference in 2016: He said:
"In view of us, we are obviously unable to distinguish between games, and these games can be played on any set of top boxes or PCs and anything else, and there may be billions of such computers or devices, then we are in the foundation reality. The probability is only one hundredty-one. "
"40 years ago, we have" pong ", which is two rectangles and a point. This is the beginning of the game. For 40 years, we have 3D simulation, and millions of online games. And technology is still developing, We will have VR and AR world soon. "
Although I can imagine that all of us may actually live in a huge and advanced computer game, physicists are indeed attracted to this idea, and in theory, it can be at least a possibility.
In fact, in addition to Mask, many science and technology leaders are obsessed with simulation theory and invest hundreds of millions of dollars. The Silicon Valley, which is a pile of companies such as Apple, Google and Facebook, and is the forefront of studying in this regard.
In 2016, the incubator Y Combinator president Sam Altman’s "New Yorkers" said that the entire Silicon Valley, including him, is very obsessed with the concept of computer simulation. He said: "Many people in Silicon Valley are very obsessed with this simulation assumption. They think that the reality we experience is the computer generated. The billionaires in the two science and technology community have been secretly recruiting scientists, hoping to bring us from simulation Liberate. "
In an interview, Mask also reaffirmed his serious concern about artificial intelligence, this topic he publicly discussed many times.But for the risk of artificial intelligence, he feels that people’s attitude is still not paying enough.
He said that one of the performances of insufficient attention is that people ignore the integration of humans and technology, but this integration has been carried out in an amazing speed.
"You are already a semi-mechanic." He said, "iPhone is actually your own extension, but now you can control the extension items you control, such as mobile phones and computers, communication between the mobile phones, and the data rate is slow. "
Mask latest five major attention:The network is the projection of the ID
In this podcast, Rogan conversed with Mask’s two and a half hours, the topic mainly focused on five aspects:
1. Main dangers of artificial intelligence are human beings become a weapon
Mask has long been a warning for the dangers of artificial intelligence. In March of this year, he said in south of Southwest China that artificial intelligence is far more dangerous than nuclear weapons, and the government should take action to regulate the development of artificial intelligence.
Mask said that the main dangers are not artificial intelligence to human attack. "There is a tricky problem here, that is, it is very attractive to use artificial intelligence as weapons. The danger is in human beings use it." On the other part of the podcasts, China Mask also added, "I tried to convince people to slow down." Slow down the speed of artificial intelligence, but this is futile. I have worked hard for many years, no one listened. "
Luogen also said, "This seems like a movie, the robot will take over everything, and you are frightened."
"But no one listens" Mask said.
2. Soon the significant progress of neural connection technology can be announced
If you can’t beat Ai, add AI.
This is the basic argument of Mask.
He believes that the future of artificial intelligence is to find ways to fuse human and machinery. In some respects, we have done it now: smartphones can be considered to have its own extension.
However, this extension and artificial intelligence relationship have bandwidth problems.
"You can’t communicate with your fingers, because it is too slow." Mask said.
Our goal is to greatly improve our biological self and digital self-communication channels, which can be achieved by neural-link technology, which helps control the long-term evolution of human and artificial intelligence.
"From the long-term perspective, this is like the purpose of neural connection, which is created a high-band width brain interface so that we can symbio with artificial intelligence."
Masque has found NEURALINK, as for the latest progress of this company, he revealed: "We will have some interesting things to announce, at least a number of levels than anything, may be considered more than anyone Be good. "
He depicted a long-term vision for this technology: adding artificial cognition to the brain "A.I. EXTENSION OF YourSelf" – The cerebral skin and brain edge system forms a synergistic relationship.
3. The society is playing with the earth "crazy game"
Mask said that in the process of more sustainable energy transitions, electric vehicles should be important as soon as possible.
"We really play a crazy game about the atmosphere and ocean. We collected a lot of carbon from the depths of the ground, then release these carbon in the atmosphere, this is crazy. We should not do this, this is very To speed up the transformation of sustainable energy. It is obvious that in the long run, we will exhaust oil. The oil we exploit and combustion is only so much. We must have a sustainable energy transportation and energy infrastructure. .
We extract hundreds of tons of carbon from the ground and discharge it into the atmosphere and ocean. This is a crazy experiment. This is the most stupid experiment in human history. Why do we do this? This is too crazy. "
4. Network landscape is the projection of ID
Mask said that the most successful online platform is the platform that resonates with our brain edge system – part of the brain is responsible for emotion, stimulation and memory, and these systems, such as social media, the intelligence of the society The share of the share is getting bigger.
"Imagine all of these things, including that original motivation, all we like, annoying, scared things, are on the Internet, they are projected by our brain edge system."
5. Once artificial intelligence becomes dangerous, supervise it is too late.
Mask said that before the government truly began to supervise an industry, it needs to develop and implement many years. Taking the safety belt regulations in the automotive industry as an example, this provision actually takes 10 years.
"This time framework is independent of artificial intelligence, starting from dangerous moments, you are impossible (supervise it) 10 years. Too late."
However, when artificial intelligence reaches the so-called singular point, what happens, no one can say it.
"It’s hard to predict, just like black holes, what happens outside your line of sight. It may be terrible, it may be very great. It is still unclear. One thing is affirmative: We can’t control it."
Mask also admitted that he still hopes to make the best contribution to humans. "I would rather keep a mistake but optimistic attitude."
finallyLet’s talk about smoking and drinking the big treasure sword.
During the interview, Masque took a whiskey, but he also took a mariha, but he didn’t like to do this, because this would make him proud efficiency decreased.
"This is like pumping a cup of coffee," Mask said, "I like to do things well, also like useful things."
The program is recorded in California, according to local laws, smoking cannabis
Whether you love him or hate him, you can’t noise Mask has such an interesting point.
