While sailing to the islands of Aegina and Hydra, delegates attending a conference on the new economy were told computers will never acquire common sense; therefore, humans will always be useful and necessary. Even in the next century, robots will not attain the intelligence required to compete with the human race.
That was the central conclusion drawn from the conference “Cruising Towards the New Economy,” which took place on Sunday, June 17th, that gathered more than 250 representatives from the business and academic world of the New Economy. This innovative event was organized by iForce Communications in collaboration with Newcroft Conferences & Conventions.
The conference was initiated by the Presidents of iForce Communications and Newcroft Conference & Conventions, Fokion Zaimis and Christos Stoforopoulos. The keynote speaker, Dr. Michio Kaku, said his research showed that the smartest robot has the intelligence of a retarded cockroach, nowhere near the brainpower possessed by a human being. Dr. Kaku also discussed Moore’s law, which states that computer power doubles every 18 months, leading to the revolution which will make chips as readily available and inexpensive as paper.
“Soon, microchips in your clothing will monitor your blood pressure and alert you when something is wrong,” said Dr. Kaku. The above deductions were achieved by Dr. Kaku’s interviews with more than 150 world-renowned scientists for his book “Visions.”
