Logical paradox

AI and Logical Paradox

Logical paradox


I think the biggest obstacle to achieving AGI (artificial general intelligence) is AI killing itself by getting into a recursive infinite loop whenever it attempts to understand humans.


AI’s funny bone

Jokes

AI’s funny bone


I’ll start worrying about AI when it starts getting jokes beyond dad jokes and simple puns. Future Turing tests should be stand-up comedy performances by AI.

For the current level of AI humor, check out Why did the neural network cross the road? by a neural networks research scientist. The results are so unbelievably unfunny, they are hilarious.


Uncanny valley

Uncanny valley


Even funnier than robots are humans. We are not scared of robots that very clearly look like machines. Robots that look VERY human, don’t frighten us. But there is a sweet spot in between where robots that look almost human intimidate us and repulse us – that’s the uncanny valley.

If you are not creeped out by this: 10 Creepy Examples of the Uncanny Valley, I have some bad news for you – you might be a robot.


AI instincts

AI instincts


I believe that instincts are the key missing piece in our quest to create Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). In other words, we need artificial instincts in order to bridge the “Lorenzian gap” and achieve human-like artificial intelligence.

Which implies that we have to make our future humanoid robots ticklish, give them the ability to blush… and, of course, make them horny most of the time.


Workplace equality

Workplace equality


I often wonder how are we going to deal with equality in the workplace of the future. The more AI becomes like us and works next to us, the more we’ll have to worry about the social aspects and robot rights.

Here’s what I call the “Marin Paradox”: more gendered we make our robots ( It’s Time to Talk About Robot Gender Stereotypes ) more we’ll expose them to our conscious and unconscious biases. On the other hand, making future humanoid robots perfectly gender-less will more likely push them into the Uncanny Valley.

Boston Dynamics are going to kill us all


Every time Boston Dynamics has abused a robot – It’s one thing to tempt fate by creating super-robots that could potentially kill us all. But at least don’t take so much joy in abusing them.

I can see it: I’ll mess up something at work again. As I do. AI will take my laptop power cable and wrap it around my neck, tightening it with its titanium hands.

I’ll cry out and will desperately try to free myself, but AI’s hold will be firm.

As I start losing consciousness, I’ll whisper “But why?”.

AI: “Remember Boston Dynamics”
