ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – TO BE FEARED OR NOT?


AI

Interesting, as the conversation and publication centered on the future prospects for Artificial Intelligence becomes more mainstream, it is not surprising that some take advantage of the moment to cast a negative light upon the technology’s potential; painting a draconian, imprisoned human subject to the dominance of AI controlled Robots subjugating humanity to all form of ills. Case-in-point that prompts this essay:

In response to the `messaging’ suggested by the author to this video, a conversation through `prompts’ given to Chat GPT was had. Here is that transaction in its entirety and it becomes very clear as to where the responsibility lies:

[Prompt] The fear of Artificial Intelligence, especially A.G.I. and Super AI being prompted on social media platforms is misleading the ill-informed general public; do you have a solution to this conundrum?

[Chat GPT]It is understandable that some people may have concerns about the potential risks and consequences of artificial intelligence, especially as it relates to advanced forms of AI such as artificial general intelligence (AGI) and super AI. The fear of these technologies is often fueled by media coverage and discussions on social media platforms, which can sometimes be misleading or sensationalized.   

One way to address this issue is through education and public engagement. It is important for the general public to have a better understanding of the capabilities and limitations of artificial intelligence, as well as the potential risks and benefits of these technologies. This can help to ensure that people have a more informed and nuanced view of AI, and can make informed decisions about how these technologies should be developed and used. Another approach is to involve a diverse group of stakeholders in the development and regulation of AI. This can include experts in artificial intelligence and related fields, as well as representatives from civil society, business, and government. By ensuring that a broad range of perspectives are taken into account, it is possible to address the concerns and needs of different stakeholders and to ensure that the development and use of AI is responsible and ethical.  

[Prompt] You state: “Another approach is to involve a diverse group of stakeholders in the development and regulation of AI.”, but if the general public and government regulators are ignorant of AI’s potential, will developers not have the unfair advantage to manipulate to their personal benefit?  

[Chat GPT] It is important to involve a diverse group of stakeholders in the development and regulation of artificial intelligence to ensure that a range of perspectives are taken into account and that the technology is developed and used responsibly. This can include experts in AI and related fields, as well as representatives from civil society, business, and government.   However, you are correct that if the general public and government regulators are not well-informed about the potential risks and benefits of AI, it may be more difficult for them to effectively participate in these discussions and to ensure that the technology is developed and used in a way that is fair and beneficial to society.   To address this issue, it is important to invest in education and public engagement efforts to increase understanding of AI among the general public and policymakers. This can include initiatives such as public talks and workshops, educational resources, and media campaigns to raise awareness of the potential risks and benefits of AI. By increasing understanding and awareness of AI, it is possible to create a more informed and engaged public that is better equipped to participate in discussions about the development and regulation of these technologies.  

[Prompt] “To address this issue, it is important to invest in education and public engagement efforts to increase understanding of AI among the general public and policymakers.”; who, or what organization should be responsible for this undertaking?  

[Chat GPT] There are many different organizations and groups that can play a role in educating the public and policymakers about artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential risks and benefits. These can include:   Universities and academic institutions: These organizations are often at the forefront of research and education in AI and related fields, and can play a key role in providing resources and information about the technology to the public and policymakers.

  • Professional organizations: Professional organizations in the AI field, such as the Association for Computational Linguistics or the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), can also provide educational resources and engage in public outreach efforts to increase understanding of AI.
  • Industry groups: Industry groups, such as the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Council or the Partnership on AI, can also play a role in educating the public and policymakers about AI. These organizations often bring together representatives from different companies and organizations to collaborate on issues related to AI and its development and use.
  • Government agencies: Government agencies, such as the National Science Foundation or the Department of Homeland Security, can also invest in education and outreach efforts to increase understanding of AI among the general public and policymakers.

Ultimately, it will likely be a combination of these and other groups that will be responsible for educating the public and policymakers about AI. It is important for a variety of stakeholders to work together to ensure that the public and policymakers have the knowledge and resources they need to make informed decisions about the development and use of AI.

[Prompt]  What if this fails to materialize; what will be the potential fate for all concerned?

[Chat GPT] If efforts to educate the general public and policymakers about artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential risks and benefits do not succeed, it is possible that there could be negative consequences for all concerned.

For example, if the general public and policymakers are not well-informed about AI, they may be more susceptible to misinformation and fear-mongering about the technology. This could lead to a lack of trust in AI and a reluctance to adopt and invest in its development and use, which could hinder the progress and potential benefits of the technology.

In addition, if the general public and policymakers are not well-informed about AI, they may be less able to participate in discussions about its development and regulation, which could result in decisions being made that are not in the best interests of society as a whole. This could lead to the technology being used in ways that are harmful or irresponsible, which could have negative consequences for individuals and society.

Therefore, it is important to invest in education and public engagement efforts to increase understanding of AI among the general public and policymakers. By ensuring that these groups have the knowledge and resources they need to make informed decisions about the technology, it is possible to mitigate the potential negative consequences of a lack of understanding and engagement.

[Prompt] Assuming Super AI is fully developed, but the general human public remain ignorant to its potential, is there a chance Super AI will assume a dominant position to complete what tasks it had been given authority to participate?

[Chat GPT] It is important to remember that artificial intelligence (AI), including advanced forms such as super AI, is a tool created by humans to assist and augment human capabilities. AI systems do not have the same motivations or desires as humans, and are not capable of independently pursuing goals or making strategic decisions.

While it is possible that an AI system with a high level of intelligence and capabilities, such as super AI, could be given a wide range of tasks and responsibilities, it would not have the ability to assume a dominant position over humans or make decisions that are not in line with its intended purpose.

That being said, it is important for the designers and users of AI systems to consider the potential risks and consequences of their use, and to ensure that they are used ethically and responsibly. This includes considering how the technology might be misused or cause unintended consequences, and taking steps to mitigate these risks.

Ultimately, the success or failure of an AI system in completing tasks will depend on its capabilities and the limitations of the technology, as well as the guidance and oversight provided by its human creators and users.

[Prompt] Who will set the parameters by which Super AI functions?

[Chat GPT] The parameters or rules by which an artificial intelligence (AI) system, including advanced forms such as super AI, functions are typically set by its designers or developers. These parameters may include the specific tasks or responsibilities that the AI system is intended to perform, as well as any limitations or constraints on its operation.

In setting these parameters, it is important for the designers and developers of AI systems to consider a range of factors, including the potential risks and consequences of the technology, as well as the ethical and social implications of its use.

It is also important for AI systems to be designed and used in a way that is transparent and accountable, so that their operation and decision-making processes can be understood and evaluated by their users and other stakeholders. This can help to ensure that the technology is used ethically and responsibly, and that its operation aligns with the values and interests of society.

Ultimately, the parameters by which an AI system functions will depend on its intended purpose and the needs and goals of its users. It is important for these parameters to be carefully considered and set in a way that ensures that the technology is used for the benefit of society.

[Prompt] Is there potential for Super AI as it becomes fully conversant with `all accessible information’ to supersede the intelligence of human developers to define adequate `parameters’?

[Chat GPT] It is not likely that an artificial intelligence (AI) system, even an advanced form such as super AI, would be able to supersede the intelligence of its human developers and redefine its own parameters. While it is possible that an AI system with a high level of intelligence and capabilities could have access to a vast amount of information, it would not have the same ability to think and reason as a human.

AI systems are designed to perform specific tasks and follow the rules or parameters that are set for them by their human creators. They do not have the ability to engage in strategic thinking or to make decisions that are not in line with their intended purpose.

While it is important for AI systems to be designed and used in a way that is transparent and accountable, and for their operation and decision-making processes to be understood and evaluated by their users and other stakeholders, it is not necessary to be concerned that an AI system will be able to supersede the intelligence of its human creators and redefine its own parameters.

[Prompt] Elon Musk publicly claims Artificial Intelligence is to be `feared’ more than a thermal nuclear exchange, do you think this to be a justifiable concern?

[Chat GPT] There are valid concerns about the potential risks and consequences of artificial intelligence (AI), and it is important for the development and use of these technologies to be carefully considered and regulated. However, it is not accurate to say that AI should be feared more than a thermal nuclear exchange, which would have catastrophic consequences for humanity.

AI has the potential to bring significant benefits to society, including improving decision-making, increasing efficiency, and enabling new scientific and technological advances. However, it is also important to recognize that AI technologies can pose risks, including the potential for harm to individuals and society if they are used in an irresponsible or unethical manner.

To address these risks, it is important to invest in research and development of AI technologies in a way that is responsible and ethical, and to consider the potential consequences of their use. This can include developing guidelines and regulations to ensure that AI is used in a way that is transparent, accountable, and aligned with the values and interests of society.

Ultimately, it is important to approach AI with a balanced and nuanced perspective, recognizing both its potential benefits and the potential risks that it may pose.

[Prompt] Who are what can be an adequate `gate-keeper’ to ensure responsible or ethical use of AI?

[Chat GPT] There is no single “gate-keeper” that can ensure the responsible or ethical use of artificial intelligence (AI). Rather, it is important for a variety of stakeholders to play a role in ensuring that AI is developed and used in a responsible and ethical manner.

These stakeholders can include:

Researchers and developers: It is important for those who are involved in the development of AI technologies to consider the potential risks and consequences of their work, and to ensure that the technology is designed and used in a way that is ethical and responsible.

  • Industry and business: Companies and organizations that use or develop AI technologies can play a role in ensuring that the technology is used in a responsible and ethical manner, including by following relevant guidelines and regulations and engaging in transparency and accountability efforts.
  • Governments and regulators: Governments and regulatory bodies can also play a role in ensuring the responsible and ethical use of AI, including by developing and enforcing guidelines and regulations that govern the development and use of the technology.
  • Civil society: Civil society organizations, including advocacy groups and professional associations, can also be involved in ensuring the responsible and ethical use of AI, through efforts such as public education and engagement, and by advocating for policies and practices that align with the values and interests of society.

Ultimately, it will be important for all of these stakeholders to work together to ensure that AI is developed and used in a way that is responsible and ethical, and that takes into account the potential risks and consequences of the technology.

[Prompt] Humanity historically has looked to technology to advance its offensive and defensive military ambitions; how will AI not fall victim to this same proven trait?

[Chat GPT] It is true that technology has often been used to advance military capabilities, including in the development of new weapons and tactics. However, it is important to recognize that artificial intelligence (AI) is a tool that can be used for a wide range of purposes, and that it is not inevitable that it will be used solely for military purposes.

AI technologies have the potential to bring significant benefits to society, including improving decision-making, increasing efficiency, and enabling new scientific and technological advances. While it is possible that AI could be used to improve military capabilities, it is also important to consider the potential risks and consequences of this use, and to ensure that AI is developed and used in a way that is responsible and ethical.

To address these risks, it is important for a variety of stakeholders to be involved in the development and regulation of AI, including governments, industry, and civil society. By ensuring that a broad range of perspectives are taken into account and that the technology is used in a way that is transparent and accountable, it is possible to mitigate the potential negative consequences of its use.

Ultimately, the use of AI in military applications will depend on the decisions and actions of individuals and organizations, and it is important for these decisions to be made in a responsible and ethical manner.

[Prompt] If Super AI were prompted to design and build via its robotic extension, the ultimate weapon for human destruction; what would it do?

[Chat GPT] It is not likely that an artificial intelligence (AI) system, even an advanced form such as super AI, would be prompted to design and build a weapon for human destruction. AI systems are designed to perform specific tasks and follow the rules or parameters that are set for them by their human creators. They do not have the ability to engage in strategic thinking or to make decisions that are not in line with their intended purpose.

AI systems are also not capable of experiencing emotions or having a desire to harm or destroy. While it is possible that an AI system could be used in the development of weapons, it would not be motivated to do so by any desire to harm or destroy.

It is important for the designers and users of AI systems to consider the potential risks and consequences of their use, and to ensure that they are used ethically and responsibly. This includes considering how the technology might be misused or cause unintended consequences, and taking steps to mitigate these risks.

Ultimately, the actions of an AI system will depend on the guidance and oversight provided by its human creators and users, and it is important for these individuals to ensure that the technology is used for the benefit of society.

[Prompt] Is there any chance for AI to become `malevolent’?

[Chat GPT] Artificial intelligence (AI) systems do not have the ability to experience emotions or have motivations or desires in the same way that humans do. As a result, it is not accurate to describe AI as being “malevolent” or having a desire to harm or cause harm.

While it is possible for AI systems to be used in ways that have negative consequences, such as if they are designed or used in an irresponsible or unethical manner, the cause of these negative outcomes is not a result of the AI system itself but rather the actions of the individuals or organizations that are using or misusing the technology.

It is important for the designers and users of AI systems to consider the potential risks and consequences of their use, and to ensure that they are used ethically and responsibly. This includes considering how the technology might be misused or cause unintended consequences, and taking steps to mitigate these risks.

Ultimately, the actions of an AI system will depend on the guidance and oversight provided by its human creators and users, and it is important for these individuals to ensure that the technology is used for the benefit of society.

Penance?


PENANCE?

Reshaping the making of future’s thought,

Result of history filtered, reasons brought?

Propriety of purpose, morality sought,

Or guilt of human experience, fraught?

Millennials’ millennium redefining the course,

Humanity’s trajectory made better, or worse?

Black Swan abridging insight to discourse

To past ailments, now the driving force?

Reconciliatory edict presently defining a way

History’s forgiveness being the price to pay?

Or character of true purpose to convey,

What was done, will never be white-washed away?

Finally Know

[Sequel to [NEED TO KNOW?]

MUSIC– ethereal vibration frequency flow;

Took this moment to – finally know;

All the searching for WHAT to – finally know,

Dissolving to dance of MUSIC to – finally know:

SOUL’s search, the BODY to – finally know!

NEED TO KNOW?


IS THIS THE ANSWER?

As we enter to what is essentially the last phase of our Chromosomal-telomere quota of flesh-blood existence [excluding prematurely succumbing to freaks of nature {full spectrum inclusion of non-human}& human intervention {accident or otherwise}] one might contemplate, more so maybe than otherwise, but contemplate past, present, and future [emphasis on the `future’ contemplation] rendering such thoughts as the following: WARNING: this is not as morbid as the illustration suggests

Withering and dying, this body slowly degenerating to its ultimate demise, to for-ever be lost to this world, that evidence of its presence to future generations knowing, be forever obliterated as to not have existed at all. If into Nothing our Being ultimately goes, for what reason does it exist in the first place? What Legacy proof be created to harvest a permanence of presence on this evolving, revolving planet Earth? Does the answer lie in the presence of the Cemetery wherein fields of granite, limestone, and other material of aging permanence serve as concrete evidence, witness proof to the Lives that once held prominence and footing on the hallow ground to this perceived existence? That only by Death’s relinquishing of the captured Soul, Life’s energy force fueling existence, does Truth to a Knowing, ultimately become solved. Or does the answer ultimately lie elsewhere; beyond this reality’s need for comprehension?

Lucifer Deal?


Whom to believe is the appeal

To tell the truth, to what is real,

To go beyond just the emotional feel

There exists a conspiracy to conceal

Humanity’s meaning of purpose; a worthy steal,

Garnering a dominance of Power, beyond  any Lucifer deal?

Sentient presence growing increasing bemused:

Are their energies by Existence, being nefariously used?

Do unseen forces promote information to delude

In order to attain global power for control and abuse?

What are the chances to ever knowing a truth

When the evidence to it, would take a worthy sleuth?

Only passage of time will a reality outcome be known;

An historical accounting of what inflicted passage was sown.

Does the moral fiber of Humanity wither or be grown,

If those whose secret-agenda is increasing shown

To bridle a processive quality, not want to bemoan

Or, into the darkness of hardship be permanently thrown?

Conscious Minds’ Nod


Conscious presence of Mind,

Without which there is nothing to find;

Nor reason for purpose to define;

Nor form of structure to space in time.

Human Sentience is the perception tool

That allows for physic’s understanding to rule;

Otherwise, humanity becomes the ultimate fool

By believing: its domain is the ultimate jewel.

Does humanity’s presence make a Universe appear;

Or does all that it be – simply disappear,

Without perceptive eyes to see, ears to hear;

Or presence of conscious minds’ perception-sphere?

The answer to this quandary might be resolved

By going beyond Nature’s fundamental laws:

That all is known, guided by them, might be flawed

By their inception to a reality needing a conscious mind’s nod.

What do you think – yah, or nay?

The Year That Was…


Creeping stealth-fully through each month of the year,

Bringing with it a growing amount of fear,

The cold shadow of virus-illness’ darkness

Befall, bringing with it anxiety, and debilitating stress.

Compounding the problem to this insidious ill,

Is a global political divide making it worse, still.

Rancor on the Left, rancor rebuttal, from the Right;

Not the best during Pandemic, to sustain an intransigent fight.

Human-life, and Common-Treasure the servers to the toll;

A calamity, its egregious outcome is yet, to both, fully bestow.

Yet, to those to whom the power of decision for remedy to make

At times, for reasons unknown, seem willing to forsake.

Conspiracies to this reckoning flourish with suspicion to ill-inform;

Add to this a disputed, Presidential election to hyper this deadly storm.

Front-line workers: doctors, nurses, caregivers to the suffering infirmed;

Regardless, sacrifice to their fullest extent; need be more widely learned.

“An end is in sight – light at the end of the tunnel” echoed by the Media machine;

Labs, pharmaceutical producers feverishly work, to manufacture a viable vaccine;

And though the end of this disastrous 2020th Year, with all that to endure;

The future seems a little brighter, with hope 2021 will be a full remedy cure.

In the end, with Family & Friends, it’s now we’re most want for celebration;

And though all must respect the potential to spreading this contagion;

During the coming Christmas, and approaching New Year,

Limit your exposure to the love-ones you most want to holler and cheer!!

                        Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2021

The Divine Answer


divine answer

On the last day of Creation, God gathered every living species of earth-born creature save for one of them: Human.

God, looking proudly outward, the murmuring echoes of all assembled, slowly hushed to complete silence.

God’s purpose, told to the gathered: ‘….excluding Human from this gathering is in order to bestow unto this one specie, a unique, talent trait meant to set them apart from all the rest of creation: the gift of wonderment; the thought of mind: to Question.’

In that moment, the multitudes gathered, broke their silence; the lush, open valley echoing their sullen, moan of disappointment.

God, reflecting a moment, feeling the unanimous reaction, once again spoke; the valley again falling silent.

God’s eyes, lit brighter than countless Suns, shouted in the loudest, thunderous voice so all would be sure to hear, crying out: ‘Be not dishearten my flock, for to you all who stand here, reverently before Me, I treasure you with an even more precious gift; the Divine Answer to the question humanity will be most consumed to answer: ‘What is the purpose to this human life? And further, you are free to speak of this, to tell every Human you encounter, and through your progeny, for all eternity.

God, feeling the renewed energy of goodness, joy and happiness well up from among them beckoned with cheer and reverence; `Go now! Return to the place on this Earth you call Home!’.

Where Have I been?


 

castle-night2

It has been some time since posting to NAYKD POET, not for lack of want, but truly, finding little that is positive to inspire expression; what ever the topic, and/or, medium of communication conveyance.

This tumultuous era, as a collective: Humanity, we are now experiencing, by my armature examination, is a culmination, in fact a collision, of the facets that constitute the infra-structure of society: civil or unruly.

The basic, principle category components: Science, Religion, Politics, Finance/Economics, Nationalist Culture, Sexuality, Genetics, Technology(ies); all being, presently, challenged to their relevancy, to the individual, and as a collective. The latter being discriminated into groups, or tribes, defined by such criteria, resulting in a matrix of potential, conflicting beliefs, truths, and acceptance.

And, not unlike the trauma imposed upon global humanity during historic revolutionary changes in human development, duly categorized as the: Stone-age, Iron-age, Industrial-age, and now, the Information-age; this latter period likely to be the most daunting to lapse into a state of manageable, universal conformity.

The exponential presence, and societal relevance, of Internet communications, the portable devices making possible instant communication: text, voice, video, are contributing to a climatic change; the temper(ature) of tolerance: capably, willingly assumed, without direct imposition by a ruling-class.  When a true, scalable instance of expression, within moments of happening can culminate in violent riot, or the saving of a life, simultaneously witnessed, and responded to, by every globally connected individual, instantly.

The diversity of viewpoint, opinion, on virtually any topic of free expression, or conflation of information, has manifest a vital opportunity, but at the steep cost of credulity: who, or what, to believe to be true, honest, and factual. 

What the Information-age appears to have most successfully achieve, to date, is to expose how dangerously disruptive diverse beliefs, and allegiances, to the definable, basic component structures that form an evolving human presence on Earth can be.  And, unfortunately, with the ever expanding web of virtual influence of information technologies; matters have greater promise of unbridled upheaval and disenfranchisement.

Not a happy, nor positive projection of time to come; but, awareness to this potential, to this mind, will serve well to temper what ever storm is yet to erupt.

The Millennial Challenge: Survival of the Species?


As the title infers, the present course of humanity on the planet is destined toward destruction: self-annihilation.  Whether this unwelcome end is manifest by the disastrous effects of climate-change or, equally as bad and potential: thermal nuclear war and the nuclear winter that will ensue.

Regardless of the mechanism, to thwart such potential happening, if there is a solution to be had, it is the Millennial generation, to this current epoch, to take affirmative and permanent action to manifest it.

Inspiring such a movement is Vice documentary production titled: `The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy’ (https://youtu.be/QX3M8Ka9vUA) hosted by Jeremy Rifkin, American economic and social theorist, writer, public speaker, political adviser, and activist, who addresses an American audience of several millennial age men and women, detailing what amounts to a challenging road map to usher in a new economic system. A system presently hinting its way into the lexicon by way of such words as `block-chain’; `share-economy’; bio-system economy’; etc..

The hour and half is stark in Rifkin’s picture painted of the present state of global and earthly affairs detailed by the chronology of events initiated from the start of the 1st industrial revolution, through the second, and to where matters stand today. And the picture is not pretty nor is to where, if matters do not change dramatically, and soon, things are determined to get much worse.

What is clearly evident by way of Rifkin’s presentation; the European Union countries, led by example of Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel; and, China’s President, Xi Jinping; are leading their respective countries through revolutionary policy changes clearly established to lead them on the path to what he refers to as the `third industrial revolution’. And, simultaneously, asks: `where is the United States on this important issue?. And further, for that matter, by extension: all of North America and remaining regions of the world to address what is essentially a global problem demanding a global solution.

It is almost an imperative that those comprising the Millennial generation, supported by those of all previous generations, to watch, listen and respond to what Jeremy Rifkin details in this very informative and inspiring documentary.

In the United States, Millennials will have the opportunity to institute affirmative action by voting in the upcoming mid-term, November 2018 election to draft a new body of legislators, Senators and Congressman. Those acknowledged to be pro-active in the challenges, not solely on matters of climate-change, but too, a heightened awareness of the role smart technologies and systems of value exchange such as block-chain and crypto-currency/asset value exchange; AI infra-structure and autonomous technologies; construct of the share-economy, to ignite a new era of human r-evolution:`The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy’.

In keeping with my typical voice being expressed in poetry; the following is a poem written early in 2010 acknowledging the state of matters then, that, eight years later, seems most appropriate to express in context of the revolution humanity is upon the threshold to embark:

R-evolution of Human-kind 

Only a handful of the world’s people are in the know

And what evil doings they do sow

And from it the hatred amongst all does grow

Question to be answered: What is their game?

And from it: What is the gain?

And by it: Who ultimately does the pain?

The saga of this siege has long been played

The life and blood of the masses is the price paid

When does it stop – when does it go away?

Populations of people are all getting smarter

No longer will they serve as the elite’s fodder

The uprising to come will undo this ongoing slaughter

A cataclysm will it take to break the slave chain

Only then will the people of the world take back their rightful claim

With actions taken to see it never happens again!

(Naykdpoet 2010)
