If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Moderated by Susan Schneider; Surya Ganguli, Andrew Briggs, Olaf Witkowski and Michael Vassar in the panel "Will We Hit an AI Singularity?" at the 6th International FQXi Conference, "Mind Matters: Intelligence and Agency in the Physical World."

The Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi) catalyzes, supports, and disseminates research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality but unlikely to be supported by conventional funding sources.

It is excactly what I explained on the blog of Ellis, we must be prudent , the AI singularity can be an enormous problem for us the humans knowing all the errors that we make due to our sad common past of adaptation and this global non perfect system and this human psychology. We are arrived at a time intriguing technologically speaking considering this AI. Maybe we create a thing and we don t know even what will be the result in a near future.
