When Playing It Safe Is the Best Strategy: The Case of A.I. Safety

When Playing It Safe Is the Best Strategy: The Case of A.I. Safety

Just like many other people involved in applied science today, I enjoy taking risks. In fact, I鈥檓 a big supporter of the idea that not taking risks is the riskiest thing of all. Nevertheless, when it comes to A.I. taking risks is not only...

This is a rather important subject, Zacharias 馃悵 Voulgaris that is hardly discussed. I find myself rather divided on the entire matter, depending on the circumstance that is. Sometimes, I am a fan of AI and deep learning seeing its efficiency and ability to add more ease to our daily lives. Take something as simple (or as advanced) as Alexa. Although, it is not a perfect AI companion as I have to keep barking orders and requests till it actually returns the right results sometimes, but I like the fact that I can do so from the next room without typing every search word into my phone. After a year of togetherness, it has actually learnt about me way better that I had imagines. However, on the other hand, this is all raw data about me that is on my Alexa and hence somewhere o the Big Data Forum with some (I fear) Big Brother seeing everything. It does not necessarily need to be human (creepy!!!). It reads our chats, and now it can chat with all the idiosyncratic expressions we use in our chats and there is no way our friends can tell us if it is us or Google auto-suggesting my every word. Throughout my life I have felt, the more we divulge to someone, the more vulnerable we are. I feel vulnerable, now.Google knows everything. When I ordered my last pizza, from where, if I ordered in or visited the store and even my favorite toppings. Even if AI does not go rogue, it could be manipulated. What we need is firm control over everything that is happening. Control feels good and happy, and this is the reason why. You get the best of both worlds. I know it's not easy, but I know it's possible.

Harvey Lloyd On the contrary rather than apology I would say thanks are in order. Zacharias's actual goal is educational but in making his case for education around A.I. safety, it fed into my own contemplation of what a perfect storm looks like and how artificial intelligence may aid and abet that perfect storm, and why it is not a safe strategy to address AI safety in isolation. In an America that was governed by checks and balances one can hold a much safer view of artificial intelligence. Unless the go forward solution is anarchy, a system of government is required but as Peter McShane points out in his book "Madison's Nightmare: How Executive Power Threatens American Democracy", we have seen the erosion of checks and balances for many decades. Yet as the US is surrendering safety intelligence, China is strengthening it. In that regard, the way China has gone about sowing up strategic contracts in Africa is incredibly impressive. Why? Since their safety intelligence is looking forward 50 years ahead. Short-term thinking is the dangerous choice. So I contemplate what the perfect storm looks like. With AI there are two obvious inputs. Nefarious use of AI https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/feb/21/ai-security-threats-cybercrime-political-disruption-physical-attacks-report and again China https://www.cfr.org/blog/chinas-artificial-intelligence-strategy-poses-credible-threat-us-tech-leadership The perfect storm has other factors which include militia a.k.a. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/may/15/sovereign-citizens-rightwing-terrorism-hate-us-government and https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/armed-militia-groups-surging-across-nation Safety intelligence is whole system not just AI 馃槉

Roger that! However, it would be interesting to see how the applications in the area of Cannabis create opportunities for further researches in such other disregarded domains.

Epilepsy too Nick. Medical M has great application potential. Nature has so many answers we refuse to allow the world to hear and experience. Quality of life at times takes precedence over longevity itself.

What we dream is what is illusion and therefore the idea that AI will free us to go beyond our beyond is tantamount to our "faith" in there being a yellow brick road. . . or that by clicking your heels magic will become real. .

AI will enhance our employments, not replace. The ability to replace the human mind is not possible. We are not of understanding our own minds yet we try to assimilate.
