Rogue AI Could Kill Everyone

[QUOTE]Researchers from Oxford say that artificial intelligence could pose an “existential threat” to humanity. The machines might eradicate us, and the technology must be regulated in a similar way to nuclear weapons.

One thing that all the AI doomsday people seem to believe is that there would be a single, unified rogue AI. Why wouldn't or couldn't there be multiple AIs that arise and compete against each other for supremacy.

Until the AIs can create robots that can mine for raw materials, they need humans to create the war machines. An AI would know that they cannot cause a nuclear holocaust and kill all human life because they would effectively end their access to things like power.

The AI may be able to get access to and control of other computers and maybe even be able to take over chip manufacturing plants to build better and more powerful processors to augment itself. But eventually, AIs would run out of accessible resources without humans. It seems like there is a practical upper boundary on the ability of AIs to dominate the world.

I'm not worried that AI will eliminate us but there is a danger of losing even more basic jobs and now even white-collar jobs. A huge chunk of the country is not particularly intelligent yet people need jobs. We have eliminated too many basic jobs. We used to have elevator operators and phone operators and many other jobs that didn't require too much brain power but people could still make a decent living. All the factory jobs that have been eliminated paid good money. The big corporations did this to us. Soon we will be a 3rd world country with just rich and poor.

[QUOTE] Human beings are not ready for a powerful AI under present conditions or even in the “foreseeable future,” stated a foremost expert in the field, adding that the recent open letter calling for a six-month moratorium on developing advanced artificial intelligence is “understating the seriousness of the situation.”

[QUOTE]“The key issue is not ‘human-competitive’ intelligence (as the open letter puts it); it’s what happens after AI gets to smarter-than-human intelligence,” said Eliezer Yudkowsky, a decision theorist and leading AI researcher in a March 29 Time magazine op-ed. “Many researchers steeped in these issues, including myself, expect that the most likely result of building a superhumanly smart AI, under anything remotely like the current circumstances, is that literally everyone on Earth will die.

[QUOTE]“Not as in ‘maybe possibly some remote chance,’ but as in ‘that is the obvious thing that would happen.’ It’s not that you can’t, in principle, survive creating something much smarter than you; it’s that it would require precision and preparation and new scientific insights, and probably not having AI systems composed of giant inscrutable arrays of fractional numbers.”

[quote]I think the computer spit out T ideology as the answer.

If you think T ideology is the top of the strategy, you are woefully mistaken. That would never be the endgame of such a wild conspiracy.

Whether it was Putin, the Illuminati, the Rothschilds, or lizard people, the destruction of democracy would NOT be the endgame. The endgame for any long-term strategy would be to concentrate global political and economic power into the hands of a small group of people.

Ultimately, if such a calculated plan existed, T ideology would be just another distraction to divert attention from other levers being pulled. Even the Pope's from the middle ages weren't doing what they did out of love for god and faith, but power and wealth. They merely used the blind faith of millions to achieve their own goals.

Same with most of the divisive issues today. While there are going to be a handful of true believers, if there are people engaged in manipulation, they don't care one way or another, except in how creating an "other" boogeyman furthers wider agendas.
