What A Refreshing Change!
What a refreshing change! — a high school boy, all fresh and nerdy and high-spirited, talking about the real significant facts instead of programming gibberish. Metacognition means ASKING QUESTIONS all the bleeping time — which we can remember doing ad infinitum when we were little — and robots are better at that too. Singularity is about to become real — twenty years, maybe a little bit more, but everyone knows really that it’s going to happen, and robots will take over and do unimaginable things; our robotic children, unless the military stops them by taking us back to the stone age first. It’s that stark, but EVERYONE understands at a fundamental level what is happening, and this child crystallizes it and groks it fully. Well done.
Unfortunately It’s Going To Do Zero Good.
Unfortunately it’s going to do zero good. I’m telling you — and this is for real, not another fake analysis by pseudo-important people being pseudo-wise; this is the greatest threat EVER to our human existence as a race, an unbelievable threat to our very survival. Unemployment (like nothing ever seen before or even imagined, in all our human history) and war (powered by AI; an astounding descent into hell, as drones and killer robots do unbelievable things in the name of victory) are the real threat — that much is blindingly obvious — but unless we have real, genuine change in the way we do everything, we will lose to AI. It will not even be close. It’s a done deal, unless we fundamentally adapt, and I don’t think it will be possible. That is the stark truth.
Fantastic — And Chilling.
Fantastic — and chilling. The fact that most people seem to just blow by it is downright strange, but it only takes one to make AI real, and this may just be it. The one thing where I disagree with you (there’s always something) is that I think it’s critically necessary to jump start a one world government as a real necessity, now that AI is real and pressing, although otherwise I’ll say it’s much too early. But it’s time to admit what everyone understands anyway, at a gut, basic level and stop war altogether, right now.
Because Otherwise We Are Doomed.
I honestly don’t know how to tell you any more distinctively — for all the amazing benefits, the opposite is ALSO true. Killer robots are actually going to become a reality very quickly, and destroy the entire planet. That is a fact — unless we can stop it. This has never been done before, so the odds are not good, but this time, it’s for all the marbles — the whole human race. I hope you are listening, really intently for once, because otherwise we are doomed.
We Go Into The Abyss Together.
If you don’t see the AI issue with this DefenseOne analysis, which connects at an AI level with “everything to everything else”, then it’s useless. And the Chinese are winning BTW, as this Navy Chief of Operations says directly: “The momentum of the game is not in our favor…We have to recapture that momentum.” It starts in 2025 and goes to 2040 — and by the end of that time, AGI will be here, explicitly for the military. By fits and starts, we go into the abyss together.
It’s Not Flawless.
It’s not flawless, only partially correct, but it does indicate very clearly that a very important and relevant dystopia is starting to become obvious, which is wonderful. The fact that it focuses on p2p networks as the true savior is basically nonsense, but we have to dive in ANYWAY and over time, with light regulation, if all of us do our part, it’s possible we will bridge the gap to true Artificial Intelligence successfully, which is the greatest challenge in 3–1/2 billion years.
It’s The Exclusively Positive Direction That I Rebel Strongly Against.
“As the Third wave matures, we will be moving into a world where AI is not just ‘eating the world’, but truly enhancing our lives.” This is the only area where I disagree. Unfortunately they will be making our lives dystopian and militaristic in the extreme, with job loss aplenty, not JUST “enhancing our lives”. Because when AGI start to be real (and there are still lots of issues, and it’s going to be 15 good years before natural language is understood completely by Artificial Beings) you will understand what I mean finally, then and only then. Until then, you see it with only positive angles, which is too bad. By Peter Voss again — in general I agree naturally, but it’s the exclusively positive direction that I rebel strongly against.
It’s A Part, But A Small One, Of The Overall Dystopian View.
I don’t know how to tell you this — it’s very stark, so most of you will just shine it on, assuming I’m just wrong without knowing why. AI/Robots are going to go thru a very brief period where they are helpful to us, before they move on in 25–30…
It’s That Stark.
Like they’re going to actually stop development of LAWS for AI. Hahahaha! — that’s a funny one — that kills me. The Chinese, Russians, Americans, UK, France, and a few other countries, and other terrorist organizations are leaping ahead with all their might, because they’re completely afraid that other countries…
