Joscha Bach is one of those rare people whose primary motivation is unbound curiosity and inspiration. He clearly loves what he does and you can’t help but notice his radiating passion and youthful exuberance. Joscha has an impressively wide and deep knowledge in a variety of scientific, philosophical and artistic disciplines and I had to do my best just to keep up with Bach’s brilliant fast-paced mind and stream of consciousness. I enjoyed our conversation immensely and hope you love it too. (More)

Title: Strong AI: Why we should be concerned about something nobody knows how to build
Synopsis: At the moment, nobody fully knows how to create an intelligent system that rivals or exceed human capabilities (Strong AI). The impact and possible dangers of Strong AI appear to concern mostly those futurists that are not working in day-to-day AI research. This in turn gives rise to the idea that Strong AI is merely a myth, a sci fi trope and nothing that is ever going to be implemented. The current state of the art in AI is already sufficient to lead to irrevocable changes in labor markets, economy, warfare and governance. The need to deal with these near term changes does not absolve us from considering the implications of being no longer the most intelligent beings on this planet.
Despite the difficulties of developing Strong AI, there is no obvious reason why the principles embedded in biological brains should be outside of the range of what our engineering can achieve in the near future. While it is unlikely that current narrow AI systems will neatly scale towards general modeling and problem solving, many of the significant open questions in developing Strong AI appear to be known and solvable.

"I see the AGI conference as an attempt.. to get back to the original idea of artificial intelligence - to see computational systems as an avenue to developing an understanding of how the mind works. I think this is at its heart a philosophical issue, a philosophical enterprise... but the methods that we need are some that we do not find in contemporary philosophy - so my idea is not to build applications or to develop formalisms that can be used to build applications, but it's about maybe a subset of analytical philosophy; it's in a way 'computational philosophy' where analytical philosophy allows you to express anything that can be, or use anything that can be expressed in a formal language in principle - I want to narrow this even further down. There are things that can be expressed in a computational system that are computable; that can run. This means you do exclude paradoxes which excludes not only those things that you cannot specify, but also excludes things you can specify but are paradoxes which could run - so eventually the proof that you have understood something from the point of view of a computer scientist is that it works. And I do think that you need such an approach as it has pervaded most of physics for instance already - you need such an approach in philosophy of mind too." (More)

Today’s guest is Sam Harris, philosopher, neuroscientist and best-selling author of books including “Waking Up,” “The End of Faith,” “Letter to a Christian Nation,” and “The Moral Landscape.” Jason and Sam explore a wide range of topics, including the ethics of robots, the value of meditation, Trump’s lies, and his most recent obsession AI, which stemmed from an initial conversation with Elon Musk. Sam argues that the threat of uncontrolled AI is one of the most pressing issues of our time and poses the question: Can we build AI without losing control over it? The two then discuss why meditation is so important for entrepreneurs and business people. Sam has built his brand and fan base around radical honesty and authenticity, so the conversation naturally segues to Trump and his lies. This is only the first of two parts, so stay tuned for much more. (More)

Meet the amazing tribe of women behind “bias,” a documentary film that highlights the nature of implicit bias and the grip it holds on our society. Director Robin Hauser is joined at the Tribe Table by producers Christie Herrie and Tierney Henderson, and film subject * Professor, Lois James to talk to Amy about unconscious and implicit bias and how it relates to gender and race, coming to terms with our own unconscious biases, and Harvard’s “Implicit Association Test”. The film explores bias through all walks of life: from CEOs and police enforcement to professional soccer player, Abby Wambach. With the toxic effect of bias making headlines every day, the time to talk about “bias” is now. Watch the trailer: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7137804/?ref_=ttpl_pl_tt (More)

As humans we’re inherently biased. Sometimes it’s explicit and other times it’s unconscious, but as we move forward with technology how do we keep our biases out of the algorithms we create? their programming? Documentary filmmaker Robin Hauser argues that we need to have a conversation about how AI should be governed and ask who is responsible for overseeing the ethical standards of these supercomputers. “We need to figure this out now,” she says. “Because once skewed data gets into deep learning machines, it’s very difficult to take it out."

Artificial Intelligence as it has come into the foray in the recent years is a lot more focused on automation. The best of minds right now working in the field are busy decoding how to train AI to automate as much of the time-consuming human tasks as possible. Despite what sensationalist media would have you believe, ‘automation’ not ‘making robots sentient’ is the pressing goal of the AI researchers. However, one of the biggest obstacles that they currently have is that the world is not designed for AIs to comprehend. Most of the products, machines, interactions, etc that we encounter every day are designed for human users, not an artificial intelligence. Hence, at times it becomes quite a challenge for programmers and researcher to train their AI to comprehend these designed-for-humans system. (More)

The future of AI is already here: AI and its "cousin technologies" are starting to permeate our lives and societies. As it gains insight and decision power, AI needs to empower the dynamically evolving values and growth of humans and societies in turn. Rather than getting caught up in dystopian futures, we should harness AI's vast potential for positive transformative change responsibly. To that end, we need a new global multi-stakeholder institution organizing a representative congress to negotiate a modern, digital Magna Carta and to govern AI transparently within and across borders. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx (More)

Perhaps the most nightmarish, dystopian film of 2017 didn't come from Hollywood. Autonomous weapons critics, led by a college professor, put together a horror show.
It's a seven-minute video, a collaboration between University of California-Berkeley professor Stuart Russell and the Future of Life Institute that shows a future in which palm-sized, autonomous drones use facial recognition technology and on-board explosives to commit untraceable massacres.
The film is the researchers' latest attempt to build support for a global ban on autonomous weapon systems, which kill without meaningful human control.
They released the video to coincide with meetings the United Nations' Convention on Conventional Weapons is holding this week in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss autonomous weapons.
"We have an opportunity to prevent the future you just saw, but the window to act is closing fast," said Russell, an artificial intelligence professor, at the film's conclusion. "Allowing machines to choose to kill humans will be devastating to our security and freedom."
In the film, thousands of college students are killed in attacks at a dozen universities after drones swarm campuses. Some of the drones first attach to buildings, blowing holes in walls so other drones can enter and hunt down specific students. A similar scene is shown at the U.S. Capitol, where a select group of Senators were killed.
Such atrocities aren't possible today, but given the trajectory of tech's development, that will change in the future. The researchers warn that several powerful nations are moving toward autonomous weapons, and if one nation deploys such weapons, it may trigger a global arms race to keep up. (More)
