By Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD  |  December 21, 2018  |  Cognitive World on Forbes The idea that we are living inside a simulation is not new. Many religions propose the existence of a creator—an omnipotent deity who formed the world and set its rules in motion—but this is simply another way of framing the video game hypothesis. It’s bigger than you think. Of the 7.4 billion people on this planet, only about 1.2 billion are non-religious or atheist. In other words, 84 percent of us are comfortable with the… more

If This Life Is A Video Game, What Are The Winning Rules?

Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD | Wednesday, December 19, 2018 - 05:50 | Cognitive World on Forbes

By Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD | Wednesday, December 26, 2018  |  Cognitive World on Forbes If life is a video game or a simulated reality, what are the rules and how are we being evaluated? One approach for developing and testing Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is to create and place autonomous intelligent agents inside realistic simulations—but with no obvious objective. This strategy is not so different from our lives. We do not have a clear objective for winning the game of life.  It is a problem… more
