Superhistory, not Superintelligence︎︎︎
Venkatesh Rao, 2021



What does AI do? 

Simply saying that it renders machines 'intelligent' would
put us deeper into the vicious cycle of circular definitions. Venkatesh Rao says that AI produces time.

He reformulates artificial intelligence as prosthetic “Artificial Time” that turns humans into age-centaurs. Rao's insight is crucial to our proposal. We suggest that in addition to densifying, expanding, and qualitatively reforming time,
AI also transforms space.
