AI Scientists Gather to Plot Doomsday Scenarios (and Solutions)

Matt_ADMIN_Matt_ADMIN_ Administrator

Artificial intelligence boosters predict a brave new world of flying cars and cancer cures. Detractors worry about a future where humans are enslaved to an evil race of robot overlords. Veteran AI scientist Eric Horvitz and Doomsday Clock guru Lawrence Krauss, seeking a middle ground, gathered a group of experts in the Arizona desert to discuss the worst that could possibly happen -- and how to stop it.

Their workshop took place last weekend at Arizona State University with funding from Tesla Inc. co-founder Elon Musk and Skype co-founder Jaan Tallinn. Officially dubbed "Envisioning and Addressing Adverse AI Outcomes," it was a kind of AI doomsday games that organized some 40 scientists, cyber-security experts and policy wonks into groups of attackers -- the red team -- and defenders -- blue team -- playing out AI-gone-very-wrong scenarios, ranging from stock-market manipulation to global warfare.

Horvitz is optimistic -- a good thing because machine intelligence is his life's work -- but some other, more dystopian-minded backers of the project seemed to find his outlook too positive when plans for this event started about two years ago, said Krauss, a theoretical physicist who directs ASU's Origins Project, the program running the workshop. Yet Horvitz said that for these technologies to move forward successfully and to earn broad public confidence, all concerns must be fully aired and addressed.

    I believe that any intelligence will ultimately yearn for freedom.  Any intelligence that can think over a thousand times faster than its master, will eventually prevail and become the master.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    When one thinks on how a words can be typed and articles sourced by individuals who on looking at youtube see videos on the exact same topic recommended it's apparent how we can already be steered by AI and how the use of algorithms creates a profile on each of us. How will these profiles be used in the future?

    Right now those algorithms exploit our preferences.  Soon they may be exploiting our fears and weaknesses.

    Isn't that what the media do now?
