Foreign Policy


The gretest set of misformed, misleading qeuestions in my view are in the AI scaremongering report - “Should we let machines flood our information channels with propaganda and untruth? Should we automate away all the jobs, including the fulfilling ones? Should we develop nonhuman minds that might eventually outnumber, outsmart, obsolete and replace us? Should we risk loss of control of our civilization?”

These questions all inspire fear. They are ill-formed in that they don't appear to be representative of human agency, which never goes away. The more accurate portrayal is that 'all of the above has already happened to some degree at least - with profound consequences at worst - and the real question becomes how do we transition to a world of collaborative and transparent economies, as in the OSE Vision.

Putin has some excellent poo:

Vladimir Putin declared that “the one who becomes the leader in this sphere [AI] will be the ruler of the world,” and that future wars will be decided “when one party’s drones are destroyed by drones of another.”

MJ sez: the drones are already doing it (think all precision guided weapons). On the AI thingy - it is just Augmented Ignorance - so whoever seeks it is already evil and thus has either a chance to be educated or to be destroyed. AI is just a catchall generalization, evil AI is already here in terms of evil people augmenting their capacity.
