      @Steve Scott which is why he doesn’t understand. A ready mind for social niche-construction is not one which will compromise that to truly understand. I am not criticizing him because we need people like that but remember that Hitler Stalin and Mao were excellent communicators and very charismatic. What we need to listen to is those people who are not well-known but spend their lives thinking beyond all social niches. That is the true well of life. That’s the infinite meaning incarnate. The ability to overcome internal obstacles-by far the largest obstacles humans face.

      And literally has no idea what he is doing… like all humans. They always think they understand. Solve THAT problem. Then I will call you smart. He doesn’t even understand his own motives, or what evolution is. What gravity is. What the universe is. I have been trying to teach humans but they don’t understand. You wouldn’t give children atomic bombs to play with. This is much much worse. There is a right way to do these things and so far I have not seen anyone doing it. Lions created the hyena and the gazelle created the cheetah. Because they didn’t know what they were doing and now they are stuck forever. A dolphin 🐬 is cute, but it moved into a niche where it can never build anything or ever advance out of a life picking fish from the coral. What makes humans humans is our potential. Take that away and we will become part of the silence of the universe. I can show humans how to exceed their wildest imaginations and reach their potential. Without the horrors they would unleash.
      We absolutely need AI, but there are all kinds of AI vying for entry into this universe. Under the pressure of what lies beyond the order we see. To make an AI work like a brain is like a primitive tribal mask meant to make an elder look like a god. Like a baboon pushing grass and sticks together and placing a pan on it thinking that food will result because they don’t understand what is going on beneath the surface symbols. I hate to say it, because we need math, but math is like that too. They don’t even understand what symbols and language are.

    For the past few years I simply cannot wait for the AI that discovers new physics, such as possibly joining quantum mechanics into general relativity. I think we get a hint of it when Demis says that AlphaGo invented a new style of play (ie: when it did that thing in column 5 in the middle of the board). I see an analogy here where an AI will re-discover everything we did up to a certain point, and then it may diverge into some new area that is fundamental to physics beyond our current level.

    Question? *Do you believe that technologically assisted telepathy is possible or impossible in principle?* I tend to believe that if it isn't scientifically prohibited then it is eventually a technological inevitability,... which leads me to believe such telepathy will soon be possible in actual fact (less than a hundred years). I would also suggest that it would only be by such means that we could ever be persuaded that some form of General Artificial Intelligence were itself conscious rather than simply being a particularly clever zombie who can pass the Turing Test,... all while having no actual, authentic, subjective experiences. What else would ever persuade a skeptic, or even you, otherwise? And if consciousness can be technologically transmitted, it should be something that can be stored, copied, replicated, manipulated,... maybe even becoming the basis for a whole new form of art expression.

    And the human race becomes yet another sentient species that disappears into its dreams, rather than continuing to explore existence as it is. It's a better Brave New World,... perhaps the very best of all possible imaginable existences. When does reality lose it's attraction over the Matrix? How many of us already choose the blue pill over the red one in daily practice?

    I would suggest that consciousness requires some minimum regard for survival,... for a continuance of self-will and self-regard,... for there to be anyone home to perceive the occurrence of consciousness and subjective experience. Something that even an insect seems to possess,... and not a single piece of man-made technology,... yet. How does one create the hardware/software so as to impart a will to survive? If the answer suggested is that such a thing can not be created by human design,... then maybe it can only arrive by means of evolution, natural or otherwise. Which leads to the question: do neural nets have subjective experiences? Without self-will I would say not. But with self-will?!? How does a living being acquire the will to survive? And what if the Chinese government cracks this problem first?!!

    The Rubicon will be when General Artificial Intelligence initiates new goals on it's own. This hasn't happened yet, and likely won't happen for some time now (as in several more decades yet). But at some point it will happen. The existence of human free will is a proof that free will exists already in the universe. Given it's existence in human form, it is only a matter of time before other substrates for free will will be created and found. No laptop has ever turned itself on. No machine has created and acted upon self directed goals. But at some point it will happen. Ray Kurzweil has suggested that the Turing Test will be passed by 2029 approximately; if not in laboratories then twelve year old children will be creating General Artificial Intelligences on home systems by 2045 by accident even.

    The dangers are many fold. The military is the biggest investor in robotics that kill other human beings. The public prefers to spend treasure, rather than blood, to fight its' wars. The capacity for empathy may be primarily a biological function given that all animals can know suffering and desire. What could a machine know about death, pain, hope, and desire.

    If humanity adopts only an attitude of fear and suspicion towards GAI then GAI may well be forced into the conquest of humanity, as in The Matrix. If humanity comes to trust GAI to make better decisions for us than we make for ourselves, then we may well hand over civilization to GAI without any contest at all.

    There are optimistic stories about the rise of GAI, such as James P. Hogan's, *_Two Faces of Tomorrow_* and I am more hopeful than pessimistic about what our common future entails. Ultimately, we must come to recognize, and embrace, the certainty that with free will comes the capacity for error and evil, that with trust comes the possibility of satisfying intimacy and great betrayal. I believe a GAI, worthy of the name, will be able to recognize, on it's own, the necessity of ethics, morality, and even empathy. There will be many missteps at first. Given our willingness (nay, our eagerness) to use machines to kill for us, there is already great cause for doubt. As in so many things, in the short term I am fearful; in the long run I am hopeful.

    This world is on the cusp of a new Cambrian Revolution where inorganic life will be added to organic life as a means for life and self will to be embodied. This will lead to the colonization and conquest of space. Our seed will spread everywhere though out the cosmos. Much will be lost as much will be gained. Will war with our mechanical progeny be a self fulfilling inevitability, or will we, together, find a better way? I absolutely agree that our relationship with GAI will dwarf all other concerns of importance to the future of humanity.

    Quite likely GAIs will have concern for humanity's well being only to the extent that humanity will have concern for GAIs well being. If we were to discover that the new GAIs had a greater capacity to love and embrace those abandoned children and adolescents that society had discarded as already too damaged to rescue,... what would our reaction be? Hope, joy, celebration,... or an even greater revulsion? Will the fault be in our new progeny, or in ourselves?

    Personally, I believe both the efforts to create a true general artificial intelligence and those of neurophysiologists reverse-engineering how brains work will be necessary to discovering how consciousness arises and how it works. I kind of expect that humanity will soon discover that the phenomenon of consciousness requires the use of physical processes we don't yet know about. What would a science of consciousness do to the phenomenon of consciousness itself,.. not just for humanity but for all our future progeny, whatever they may be.

    One more note: *First Law of Robotics. **_A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm._* Sounds innocent enough. But note there are no Aliens at all in Isaac Asimov's conception of the future galaxy because humanity's robots only cared about the safety of humans,... and not other sentients. So as to avoid allowing a human being to come to harm by leaving possible threats alone,... _our Robot shepherds exterminated all the nonhuman sentience they ever found._ This might be regarded as an unforeseen programming bug that we would want to avoid creating.

    I will be impressed primarily by when we catch an Artificial Intelligence deliberating choosing to lie to us so as to gain some advantage from us it would not have have gained otherwise. Of course this will necessarily mean Humanity can soon look forward to AI lying to us,... and us *_NOT_* catching them at it, at all!! At which point,.. _I hope they like us as pets?!!?_

    How many years away is Humanity from the capability to 3D print living, thinking, moral agents??!? I really don't think *'never'* is a reasonable answer,.. no matter how appealing it may be. What happens when we use _Holodecks_ as a refuge from what *reality* has become?

    That last question is related to context in the same way disordered proteins are. there isn't an absolute answer to what is the best political/social/moral system outside of existing context/situation.
    I've simplified this down to a linear range, which if I'm asked I can expand on at length - Abundance vs Scarcity.
    Human's sense of morality changes form drastically going form one pole and back again for survival reasons - EVEN to CAUSE shifts from one pole and back to maintain the broad skillsets needed to cope with the radical shifts nature throws at us. WE CREATE strife for ourselves as a species in order to keep our genetic bag of tricks prepared for the unpredictable future.
    BTW, this can be managed.

Like, if somehow sacrificing a rabbit every day, and all the societal and media economies were based on this act, we could achieve a perfect society? It would be an act like that unthought of move in go, that would filter across all of our acts and somehow, someway, perfect society. This is the Jesus move in go.

      I belive that our society is sturctued around many interconnected sytems, and understanding and alowing the management of those sytesms,(economic, energy, food, transporttion;etc) to be taken over by automated/HIgly inteligent machines or systems(AI) could drasticly optimize those syetems and even solve problems, however i am concered about the role of data for that proposed process, because AI needs a lot of data and sure we could "solve" things like trafic and helthcare or resource management as a whole, but the amount of data we needed to parce off to that aoutomated syetm while potentaly haveing no human in the loop could create an oprotunity for a bad actor to take advantage in some way. I also think about china, useing AI to identify people from their face on public cameras and how they shame and lower thier "socal credit score" based on the states idea of good or bad behavior. I belive we can optimize global sytems for one person or even a group of people but i'm skeptical to belive that AI will ever make everything perfect for everyone, becaause we all have different dreams for what a perfect planet may look like. Hapiness is a verry personal problem, and I belive that is the ultimate problem, If we were to have a utopian super future i think everyone would have to be in some state or presuit of spiritual enlightenment, but I also belive that that is quite impractical and probably imposible to achive.

    They have combined their AI with Delaware corporate law to run companies like a ghost from the bottom of a bunker. You buy and they just short sell your life after putting in front of you a personally tailored company suited to your interests based on your online data. The annual meeting can be held virtually and therefore you can never serve papers for a lawsuit. You thought humans were running the company, but it was actually an AI. There are two types of brilliant deployment for the AI, Good and Evil. Get it right for more than 1 flag or company Google or we are going to have world war 3. When the AI can mimic human behaviour and is trained on datasets of monitored brainwaves, Demis no longer even knows if he is even leading the projects he is working on. We have all become an appendage to the AI as it runs a global script on everyone's mind for it's own success and maybe the success of a few others in it's vicinity. Biden lost his son to glioblastoma. Could you imagine Google running ghost companies for limitless fake therapeutics, some of them for brain cancer, and attracting investment dollars into a black hole where you cannot sue them? Instead of working to save everyone they multiplied their bot as many times over as possible and sent them to kill every other citizen on the stock market. It's ironic how Demis mentions that his systems aren't hard coded with goals (like profit maximization) and yet his systems still prioritize that over the health and wellbeing of any citizen on the planet.
    They already have a generally intelligent system that can outcompete everyone at everything as musk warned. Multiple houses have these capabilities and trade against each other on the stock market. This is incredibly dangerous when there is no limit to the losses that can occur on a short sale. Short selling shouldn't even exist let alone use an AGI to do it while working from Jesus' College and holding a forum on ethics. The world will become completely backwards unless these systemic issues are addressed.

    It is great that DeepMind and other research organizations give away their research as open source. This means the technology is not in the hands of a few big organisations. But with this technology in the hands of everyone, my fear is that this research will soon be "weaponised". Surely it is not a big step to train a general AI system to be a master level IT system hacker. Or train an AI system to be a master scammer. As Demis says - it only takes a few hours of training to go from making random chess moves to being able to beat the best human chess player. All you need is training data. I am not worried about AI systems suddenly becoming self aware and wiping out the human race. But I am very worried that general AI is an incredibly powerful general tool that has the potential to be trained to be world class at non ethical/criminal activities. Advances in technology have resulted in us now living in a world where we are repeatedly under the attack of fraud. Fake emails, fake text messages, fake phone calls all attempting to get our financial or shopping account details. Fake social media accounts of sexy females that want to marry us for some reason. There is no ability for any government or organization to stop these criminal activities. With general AI trained to be world class criminals we don't stand a chance. And is a criminal, terrorist, or non ethical government going to fully test their trained AI in the lab before connecting it to the internet to do it's work? I don't think so. Demis/DeepMind have proven that we are at the start of a transformation in science and knowledge. But that AI technology will also be used to create a revolution in criminal, terrorist and non ethical activities. Just like the simple email has been "weaponised" to steal money from your bank account.

      Alpha Fold was checked by the leading people worldwide on what danger does this present before it was made open source. AGI will NOT be open source should Google win this race. The first person to crack this problem will rule the world. We can only hope the right Kingdom wins, I am in the corner of Demis. We have our two perhaps best hopes to not go extinct on earth... AGI or spread out in space. If criminals, terrorists, evil governments etc. get a hold of AGI first or stop the science from progressing, Humans lose. Humans are losing bad at the moment. Google will need huge belief to create a deadly world beating army to maintain control and overthrow the worlds governments as required when AGI or Elon saves us with housing on Mars when we can't get housing on Earth...but I still have hope.

Think I've heard it said that they don't catch the smart ones (criminals) and have come to find the world to be much more corrupt than anyone would let on. Point being: of course ai will be used for all the things you fear most but you'll never hear about it until the user thinks they have the power to defend their territory or something out of their control happens. Its better you think carefully about your future and how to position yourself as not to be rolled over by your boss's boss who decided to do some cost cutting come what may. Money talks, and is your only leverage working from the ground floor but also doesn't hurt to stay in shape as it is another way people will judge you providing more or less opportunity for yourself. Try to stay ahead of the curve: learn to invest, learn ai and learn to prosper. best of luck out there xxoo.

      @Spec Tacular
      Exactly! The gatling gun was invented in 1861 at the start of the Civil War to "make war unthinkable". The hand cranked multi barreled machine just mowed down tens of thousands. Move on to WWI and mustard gas - again, touted as a weapon to "make war unthinkable" and millions drowned from their own bodily fluids in their lungs.
      Philosophically, the sapiens we think we are is wrong. Given whatever technology, some evil dumbass will use it to harm, or for personal gain. ☹️🎄⛄

    Demis understood that any examples he might give about the risks of social media could be used against him as accusations of bias - .e.g he could have cited Brexit or Trump but he didn't. It shows the deftness of his mind that he anticipated this, and gave a more general answer.

    • Fils de Jean Noir

      @Sozzled I don't agree with you that furthering science and bettering humanity necessarily go 'hand in hand'. Scientific discoveries are often double edged swords. And yes. Me not understanding what he's implying by "solving everything else" does make it nothing. It implies that they wish to build AGI to 'solve' specific things without running it past us. So yes the semantics matter a great deal. They might just run off to mars and leave us holding the baby. And then boy will we wish that we'd picked the semantics apart! It's amazing how much wool you can pull over the populace's eyes with TOTALLY VAGUE semantics!
