I’m interested in links, texts, or any other kind of info on the most up-to-date projects attempting to create AI/singularity. Who’s doing it, what kinds of computers are being built, what are the relevant technical/computational issues. Anyone who can help me with this would be a savior!!

    Do fictional and non-fictional written works which explore technical issues count? I worked for many years doing research and development in the field of simulation, which was focused on reproducing human cognitive and decision making processes, human behaviors, and realistic representations of the real world, in which virtual avatars and human-in-the-loop players could interact, for the purpose of training and education. As I began to see where this technology might eventually lead, I became more and more interested in the idea of the technological singularity. Long story short, and please forgive the shameless plug, but I have just published my first novel, titled “Ovahe”, which explores the singularity from this perspective, and it does include treatments of some relevant technical issues. For example, the synthetic mind is not necessarily slaved to a single temporal framework as the organic human mind is. In other words, the synthetic mind could function in real time, slower than real time, faster than real time, event driven time, parallel time, perhaps even some sort of strangely abstracted time mode,…. I would also recommend works such as the novel “Rainbow’s End” by Vernor Vinge, Kurzweil’s books, and things like that if you are not already familiar with them.

    Personally, I try to keep up by blogging. Click on the link below for more information and links…

    Here’s one specific blog post you may want to look at…

    AAAI, American Assoc of Artificial Intelligence, publishes AI magazine online and in paper. (They may be phasing out paper). There’s always a page of quick overview of new projects, in addition to the longer technical articles.
    Second, subscribe to Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and Discover. Both well-written and full of interesting short articles as well. Also Wired and Scientific American.
    Also IEEE engineer and other IEEE publications.
    You should also go to the websites of the major research companies and get on their email lists for general-interest explanations of their recent work. Major companies also send annual reports and frequently informative magazines to shareholders. If you are extremely interested in a particular area, buying one share would probably get you ample information.

    Read the works of Ray Kurzweil(Age of spiritual machines, the singularity is near, how to create a mind).

    Read the book “On intelligence” By jeff hawkins or watch his youtube lectures.

    Watch the youtube lectures of Hugo de Garis

    Read works of fiction e.g a fire upon the deep, children of the sky by Vernor Vinge,
    Eon, Eternity by Greg Bear, The keepers of forever by James Dunnavant

    Watch on youtube the lectures organised by the singulsrity university.

    I hope I helped.
    To cheer you up, google the phrase “the jumping jesus phenomenon”, if you haven’t already.

      If sci-fi, I recommend you the three main authors on Singularity novels: Charles Stross with Accelerando; Vernor Vinge(also author of the famous report, back in ’93, describing the possibility of Singularity) Fire upon Deep, and the sequels, is a trilogy; and Alastair Reynolds, my favorite, with “Revelation Space”, I love his novels.
      If you want non-fiction(Kurzweil is not my favorite, but is the most ardent evangelist of Singularity), then is the best on the net. For other, just google the topic and see the results. Good luck with your research!
