Off to AGI 2012 tomorrow

December 6, 2012

The 2012 Artificial General Intelligence conference beckons. Down to Oxford on the train, to present on Perceptual Time (see July post). At least I’ll be able to concentrate on just one thing at a time, instead of trying to herd cats, and perform academic duties and discuss the budget all at once. Sometimes i think I’d get more research done if I retired, and made my workshop in my garage a bit friendlier. I reckon I could maybe even build a prototype of the hearing aid I nearly patented in 2000. Still, between that and the novel microphone work that’s ongoing… maybe one day… But I digress. Artificial General Intelligence is the subject for this coming week-end, and it looks quite interesting. The last AGI meeting I was at was in Memphis, and had lots about the singularity, but perhaps that’s a little passé now. Looking forward to it, and to travelling by train and not plane as well, even if it does take rather a long time to get there. But for now, I’d better go and get packed!
