Developing Intelligence

Steve Grand, author of “Creation: Life and How to Make It” as well as a principal designer behind the groundbreaking artificial life game “Creatures“, was recently interviewed over at MLU.

It covers a smattering of topics: recent proposals for a completely synthetic lifeform; analog computation; advantages of embodiment (not what you think!); animal intelligence and imagination; future directions in computational neuroscience.

    Thanks for this, I found it to be a very interesting interview. Good timing, I’m currently 3/4ths of the way through his book “Creation: Life and How to Make It” and am finding it quite interesting. We differ on a few points but he appears to be the most capable AI theorist I’ve read yet. Excellent stuff :)
