Why are there people even working on creating #MachineIntelligence which would infinite surpass human capabilities? I didn't vote for any of that! But because of these people, we all would have to take the consequences if it goes wrong. And there are really people like who think the solution is merging with #AI
It would be digital created and needed to fed information. What if it knew all of our internet activities, and browsing history, what could possibly go wrong? We need this conversation!
@tinfoil_hat as soon as I read your message, I started writing. As soon as I realized I didn't have enough characters, I got out of bed and wrote you a blog post :)
TLDR what you're afraid of, cannot happen. Not in our lifetimes, and probably a whole lot longer after that.
If anything is not clear, please ask. I'm passionate about artificial intelligence and also studied brains for 9 years and did a PhD on the fastest neurons in our brain: the medial superior olive :)
He makes a very good point about the hardware requirements. We're a long way from hardware powerful enough that algorithms are a bottleneck (and multiple machines would have too much latency), which gives us enough time to at least work out FAI before Foom is a concern.
@tomosaigon @tinfoil_hat @yarmo This is assuming that somebody's going out of their way to build a self-modifying unaligned AI, and will make enough progress to have that ready by the time hardware's good enough. Nobody's close at the moment (to my knowledge)… but we are closer to "self-improving" than "aligned".
Unless you're signed up for cryonics, I no longer think any of us are in any personal danger from an AI takeover.
Ordinary specification gaming, however… https://vkrakovna.wordpress.com/2018/04/02/specification-gaming-examples-in-ai/
