Arthur C. Clarke on nanotech and AI

from the megabrains-via-nanotech dept.
Scientific American reports Arthur C. Clarke's views on machine intelligence via nanotechnology: "Quoting himself (Clarke's third law), Clarke remarks that 'any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic; as technology advances it creates magic, and [AI is] going to be one of them.' Areas of research that target the ultimate in miniaturization, he adds, may be the key to making good minds. 'When nanotechnology is fully developed, they're going to churn [artificial brains] out as fast as they like.' "
