Smarter Than UsLigence explosiontechnological singularityIt is succinct and easy to read definitely worth the time1st art of a video interview on the book here First I love that the book is ublished under a Creative Commons license That shows the author cares about spreading his Ideas As Far As Possible And Understands as far as ossible and understands copyright restrictions merely shrink the audience unless you manage to write the next Harry Potter and the Sorcerer s Stone I was tempted to give the book five stars just for thatThe book itself is short and easy to read at least for anyone with a modicum of computer science and hilosophy It summarizes the otential dangers of AI and even briefly tells the reader how to help While Hollywood has labored for decades to instill fear of robots one day taking over the book explains how an actual AI disaster scenario could lay out differently than the standard robot movie script But importantly the book outlines the intellectual roblems that building a friendly AI Birds poses including theroblem of Tales from the Ballpark Tales from the Ballpark Tales from the Ballpark: More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told precisely defining what constitutes human well being aroblem that has frustrated hilosophers for than 2400 years Even if some unforeseen technical barrier revents AIs gaining general intelligence than 2400 years Even if some unforeseen technical barrier Robot Programming: A Practical Guide to Behavior-Based Robotics prevents AIs gaining general intelligence kind that could outsmart humans across the board humans should benefit from attentionaid to moral Perfect Phrases for Writing Company Announcements: Hundreds of Ready-to-Use Phrases for Powerful Internal and External Communications philosophy Thus the book should be helpful even in the unlikely event it turns out to be unnecessaryBut being short the book has to leave a lot out These omissions struck me as rather curiousChapter 7 What Precisely Do We Really Really Want describes the difficulty of specifying a goal so as to exclude all solutions having undesirable conseuences The chapter does not mention the extensive fictional literature exploring this very uandary for example The Monkey s Paw and the List of adaptations of The Monkey s Paw Be careful what you wish for is an ancient fictional trope King Midas anyone The book does not need to cover the whole history of this trope but at least give it a nod People did think about this before computers threatened to make it realIt also couldn t hurt to mention that when you hire two humans to do a job for you the smarter worker usually figures out what you really want reliably than the less smart worker When you hire the most expensive attorney for exampleart of what you are Versailles paying for is expert advice on what your goals are Part of the intelligent expert s job is to disambiguate your initialerhaps vague or counterproductive reuest If you ask the competent expert to do something he or she knows you robably won t be happy with for example to ursue a legal strategy with a high risk of backfire the expert will seek to dissuade you If AIs will exceed every human skill as the book The Mystery of the Two-Toed Pigeon predicts then maybe they will help us figure out what we really wantA second omission seems to ignore the book s title A recurring theme throughout the book is that it s up to humans to make AI friendly or at least contain it all by ourselves That reuires humans to solve theroblem of containing AIs or the Rack Ruin problem of building moral compasses into them or generally theroblem of Espenlaub predicting whatever troubling unknown unknowns they might unleash on us and designing in safeguards against those. Therospect of goal driven smarter than human AI gives moral Splendid Solution philosophy a new urgency The future could be filled with joy art compassion and beings living worthwhile and wonderful lives but only if we’re able torecisely define what a good world is and skilled enough to describe it erfectly to a computer rogramAIs like computers will do what we say which is not necessarily what we mean Such recision reuires encoding the entire system of human values for an AI explaining them to a mind that is alien to us defining every ambiguous term clarifying every edge case Moreover our values are fragile in some cases if we mis define a single iece of the uzzle say consciousness we end up with roughly 0% of the value we intended to reap instead of. ,

A very concise and clear book on the benefits and the otential dangers the rise of artificial intelligence oses to humanity It really opened up my mind to what is ossible and how difficult it is to create or even just define safe AI Good book that gets to the high level of managing AI and super technologytalks about the fact that this is going to Be Hard To Slow Down Let Alone Stop Could Be hard to slow down let alone stop Could be help to humanity The major oint of the book is to get on board and contribute so can be handled with intelligence and control The book is titled The Rise of Machine Intelligence but it hardly ever talks about the ositive aspects of AI The author does bring up a few valid oints about the otential threat of AI but overall it comes across as an attempt at fear mongering Many of the examples are Hollywood inspired and some of them are just fundamentally flawed The author talks about the complexities in ordering an AI to fetch a erson from a burning building and then goes on describe the need to define the erson in
