DARPA recently posted a video about the evolution of Artificial Intelligence. The objective of the video is to demystify AI and provide a no nonsense understanding of its current and future trends. However, the video entirely omits an important stream of AI research that will have significant consequences in the near future.
In this video I summarize the opinions currently expressed about superintelligence into six consensual positions and indicate why five of these are completely incorrect and the sixth is misunderstood. Left unchallenged, these positions can become misleading truisms.
