ED: 1951 was when Economist Journalists first met Von Neumann in Princeton and decided that the intended mediation futures of The Economist founded 1843 (to assist Queen Victoria in redesigning Empire maps towards Commonwealth goals of ending poverty and ending hunger through designing above zero-sum trade) and alumni of Princeton's maths TEN (Turing Einstein Neumann) were humanly, as well as logically, convergent.
Von Neumann et al used the term artificial machines (probably coined historically by Babbage!)- Neumann's last work (written during his last 18 months ) is book "The Computer and the Brain". This is fundamental to deep discussion of Human and Inhuman Artificial Intel!. Recent media frenzy demanding 6 months halt to AI seems to be as unreasonable as demanding a halt to economics -at least from perspective of 73 year learning curve
| Titles of last parts of Neumann book on Computer & Brain are: Digital and Analogue parts in the Nervous System; Role of Genetic mechanism
Codes & Their Role in the functioning of a machine: complete code, short code
|As early as 1945 Von Neumann had told his wife - my supermaths generation's work on energy is going to make scientists both the most hated and wanted of people; one day the exponential consequences of artificial machines will be even more climactic to our species future. We hypothesise the exponential systems mapping intel around Ten alumni is where to find foundations of today's crisis of opportunity and threat in HAI "double loop". Von Neumann asked Economist journalists to continuously interview (brand charter) leaders- what goods will peoples unite wherever they are privileged to first access at least 100 tines more tech per decade? The first of The Economist's decade-long learning curves concluded 1961 (see right)
|1961 reveals 5 geonomic place labs exploring 100 times mo(o)re tech from now until computer memories exceed humans capacity: Swiss corridors where coms worldwide sectors began at ITU 1865 and since 1945 UN's digital tech twin; the two UNDPrincetion corridors N to Boston via eg IBM and Yale; South by S.West via DC to Houston soecialising in energy/nuclear and space. West Coast :Francis-Clare corridor with Stanford as its epicentre. Japan south coastal belt which by 1961 had linkedin Korea S and emerging Taiwan (as Chinese minds first lab in entrepreneurial freedom) since Brit's 1860 opium wars had closed down China's trading relationships. President Kennedy approved this 5-intel-space map 1962.
Please note the actual twinning of AI Labs (MIT and Stanford) was advanced by McCarthy 1960 on. Chatgpt credits Macarthy with coining the term AI but adds this : John McCarthy, who was one of the pioneers of artificial intelligence (AI), did refer to John von Neumann's book "The Computer and the Brain" in his own work.
