An AI program that learns from what humans know and write about, would naturally pick up on all the biases and figure that they are normal. Basically, this implies that the negative aspects of human behavior will simply be rolled over onto Artificial Intelligence. ⁃

When the creator of the Internet speaks, people ought to listen, but they will not. The technology that was meant for good is being used for unchecked evil, and is steering us straight into Scientific Dictatorship.
Technocrats who build only because they can, ultimately create many more problems than they solve in the first place. Increasing complexity invariably results in ‘system overload’ where the whole thing spins out of control.
Just 2 weeks ago, GE CEO Jeff Immelt told us that “This notion of the war of the robots happening in the short term, that’s more of a Silicon Valley vision than the real world.” This story is part of a rash of stories out of China about massive robot-replacement that prove that Immelt is either an idiot or a liar.
Technocrats and Transhumans alike see the future of man in the galaxies, rather than on earth. Both Bezos and Elon Musk, among other tech elites, want to colonize the moon as well as Mars.
Elon Musk and Ray Kurzweil both foresee a hybrid cyborg future for mankind, where connectivity will be merged into the human brain. Cell phones will appear as dinosaurs.
Instead of Technocrats running society, how about robots build by Technocrats instead? There is a major societal shift taking place even as this article is posted.
This development is likely what caused Google’s Technocrat/Transhuman Ray Kurzweil to declare that Singularity will be reached in 2029 instead of 2045. Remembering is a dangerous outcome if they are faulty to begin with, or worse, prejudiced against inputs that created them. Based on AI ‘memories’, learning will definitely increase, but will further learning be based on reality or just a wishful computer model?
When diverse AI programs develop their own languages to communicate with each other, humans may or may not be able to translate, especially if the AI learns how to build its own encryption to ‘hide’ from humans.
Major travel agency H.I.S. Co. on Wednesday celebrated the opening of its second robot-staffed Henn na Hotel. The new location is near the Tokyo Disney…
