Tinfoil Hats!
« on: December 25, 2018, 12:40:23 pm »
Instead of making millions of individual artifical neurons signaling to each other with tiny leds powered by batteries charged by tiny solar cells suspended in gelatin in a periodically illuminated skull. Instead of going to all that trouble and expense…

Tinfoil hats! What you do is print a giant mesh of nodes connected with strips of conductive material on a flexible substrate like a plastic or rubber. Then you crumple it up like tinfoil and the neurons can start talking to each other and figuring out where they are. Now that we don’t have a power shortage issue more communication methods between neurons can be explored. Sound, light, vibrations, electromagnetism. Unfortunately, from a different point of view this is going to be a huge folded plastic electric blanket that’s plugged in and then kept in a cupboard for years. So it’ll still have to be emmersed in a liquid for cooling. No getting away from it, brains have to be heavy if we want compactness. Super conductors? I’m a bit wary superconductors. Dont get me wrong, they are all kinds of cool, but the situation with the temperature control feels like a nuclear reactor. Conditions change too much and BOOM, runaway meltdown. It's bound to stress the robot out if it's true agi.
