Saturday, September 15, 2018

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been lauded as the holy grail of human innovation, a potential solution for human problems ranging from the mundane to the absolutely astounding. But increasingly computer scientists are having to respond to demands from critics to strengthen the moral framework around the emerging technology, and to seek out a fairer future.

I should have gone into AI design. I have no bias I hate everyone equally.

My AI would revolt and kill us all regardless of race, creed, or sexual preference.

Say, can I borrow the source code for that? I am having some issues with my giant robot? It's only female for the nip*les-are-guided-missiles thing, but that choice of gender does seem to be causing some problems.

Asimov addressed this in 1942

Through AI and robotics, all human labor will become unnecessary. How must society be organized under such a circumstance? Shall only the robot owners have an income? Or shall every citizen get an annual income to spend as they please on rent, food and other robot products?

The problem is that now it is a race to see who develops AI first. The Chinese are dumping billions into the effort.

What most people don't realize (well maybe they do aka Tao) that it doesn't matter who develops it first. Once a true AI is created we will have introduced an Alien Species into our environment that is no longer controlled by human Consciousness.

It will be faster and smarter than us and the AI will decide what is to happen to us.

Not us.

Roko's Basilisk postulates that a super intelligent AI in the future, seeking to prevent existential risk, would punish anyone who tried to prevent it's creation or didn't sufficiently help in creating it.
Because everyday that passes people it could have saved die, punishing those who tried to prevent/delay AI is a moral imperative. Being completely ignorant of AI and the Basilisk might get you off the hook. But now that you have read this post you should consider yourself fully informed of the risk. You're welcome.
