“We marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to AI” said Morpheus (a fictional character from The Matrix). The Matrix movie is a cautionary tale now more relevant than ever. It's happening slowly but surely and can infantile humans get a grasp on it?
Greedy corporations are not putting on enough safeguards and governments not enough regulation. I have a little more confidence in Google Bard released today to 180 countries: https://bard.google.com
The Purple Pill
Morpheus (Matrix movie) once said: “You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”
If we take the red pill (and it looks like everyone's taking the red pill), we may go down the rabbit hole of AI without regulation and we will see where that hole goes.
I would like to take the "purple" pill 🟣 which is a combination of red pill and blue pill somewhere in the middle between regulation and discovery.
According to Morpheus "A singular consciousness that spawned an entire race of Machines."
Quoting Wikipedia: "Heinz von Foerster was an Austrian American scientist combining physics and philosophy, and widely attributed as the originator of Second-order cybernetics. He was twice a Guggenheim fellow and also wasa fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, 1980."
Heinz von Foerster predicted that a technological singularity would occur in the early 21st century. This means that he believed that artificial intelligence would eventually become so advanced that it would surpass human intelligence.
It is now the early 21st century, and artificial intelligence has made significant progress. However, it is still unclear whether or not von Foerster's prediction will come true.
Some experts believe that we are still many years away from a technological singularity, while others believe that it could happen sooner than we think.
Only time will tell if von Foerster was right. However, his prediction is a reminder that we need to be careful about the development of artificial intelligence. We need to make sure that AI is used for good and not for evil.
Need for Ai regulation & restraint
Too many people hyped up on AI tools are freaking out of how amazing it is. But for the last 6 months it has scared the crap out of me of its future. The Matrix is a reminder that we need to be careful about the future of AI.
We need to think about the potential risks and benefits, and we need to develop AI in a responsible way.
Elon Musk shares my concerns and many other prominent technologists. It is important to strike a balance between the benefits and risks of AI.
