Elon Musk, Stuart Russell, Ray Kurzweil, Demis Hassabis, Sam Harris, Nick Bostrom, David Chalmers, Bart Selman, and Jaan Tallinn discuss with Max Tegmark (moderator) what likely outcomes might be if we succeed in building human-level AGI, and also what we would like to happen.

The Beneficial AI 2017 Conference: In our sequel to the 2015 Puerto Rico AI conference, we brought together an amazing group of AI researchers from academia and industry, and thought leaders in economics, law, ethics, and philosophy for five days dedicated to beneficial AI. We hosted a two-day workshop for our grant recipients and followed that with a 2.5-day conference, in which people from various AI-related fields hashed out opportunities and challenges related to the future of AI and steps we can take to ensure that the technology is beneficial.

On Wednesday December 6th, two teams of UTS academics and industry partners gathered at UTS for the hotly anticipated “Humans, Data, AI & Ethics – Great Debate”. The rhetorical battle raised the provocative proposition that:

“Humans have blown it: it’s time to turn the planet over to the machines”
The debate was preceded by our daytime Conversation which featured engaging panel discussions and Lightning Talks from UTS academics and partners in government and industry.

The debate took place in front of a large audience of colleagues and members of the public on the UTS Broadway campus. The Affirmative team (The Machines) argued that a productive relationship between humans and machines will help us to build a fairer, more efficient and more ecologically sustainable global society. Numerous examples of humanity’s gross dysfunction in governance and management were raised, from human-induced climate change to widening inequality and the recent election of unpredictable populist leaders. The team argued that finely (and ethically) tuned machines will help humans to solve these immense social and environmental challenges and maintain standards of equality, fairness and sustainability.

The Negative team (The Humans) cautioned against the rapid adoption of these hypothetical “ethical machines”, raising concerns about existing human prejudices and biases being built into AI. The team envisaged a dystopian world in which machines deny the possibility of human creativity, error or “happy accidents”, which have lead to so many important moments of discovery throughout history. According to the Negative, there are also numerous social services which as yet cannot be performed by AI. Healthcare provision for example, strongly depends on complex emotional intelligence, human tact and an ability to empathise and build rapport.

Ultimately, the Negative were adjudicated as the winner of the debate, to the relief of humanists and ethicists in attendance. The theatrical and good-humoured event was a rousing success, giving leading thinkers in the data science field an opportunity to flesh out challenging ideas surrounding data, AI, society and ethics in a responsive public forum.

Geordie Rose, Co-founder of D-Wave starts new AI company Kindred; compares AI tech to 'Super intelligent Aliens' & to Lovecraft's great 'old ones'! Listen to his speech!!!
Technology is a conduit for the demonic world to mingle with the human world. The binary computers have limitations but with the arrival of Quantum Computers, these limitations are removed as Quantum computers use resources from other dimensions (demonic dimension) to work. With the creation of Quantum Computing, building an Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become easy. This AI is one day going to evolve into the Image of the Beast of Revelation 13 and would control the entire world through the Mark of the Beast system as the Image of the Beast, a sentient AI is demonically inspired to where it actually has demonic intelligence, more than just what man has programmed it with. Geordie Rose is literally building a bridge between our world and the 4th dimension, the realm where the demonic entities resides. H.P. Lovecraft was an occultist and Geordie Rose actually compares these 'super-intelligent AIs' to 'aliens' and Lovecraft's 'Old Ones' which are both demons deceptively masquerading as aliens and gods. ("And he (False Prophet) had power to give life unto the image of the beast(Antichrist), that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he (False Prophet) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast (Antichrist), or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast(Antichrist): for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six(666)." Revelation 13:15-18, KJV.)
Notice the Hexagon logo of Tech Vancouver; Hexagon is a 6 sided polygon which signifies 6. The Hexagon in the logo with its outer line, middle line and the inner area signifies 666, the number of the Antichrist. Also notice the symbol on Geordie Rose's T-shirt, its the symbol of Ouroborous, which is an occult satanic symbol representing a serpent eating its own tail. This is a representation of Satan- the old serpent (Revelation 12:9, KJV). It also symbolizes the transcendence of duality. Its not hard to guess that Satan called the Serpent and Dragon in the Bible and the spirit of Antichrist are the inspiration behind this company which seeks to build a bridge between our world and the demonic world to allow the crossover of demons into our world.
Geordie Rose, Founder of D-Wave (recent clients are Google and NASA) believes that the power of quantum computing is that we can `exploit parallel universes’ to solve problems that we have no other means of confirming. Geordie Rose is a co-founder and chief technology officer of D-Wave. D-Wave is the first company in the world to sell quantum computers, which have the "cubic" chip, which those involved with CERN have admitted to pulling resources out of "other dimensions" and storing them in the "cubic," which may sound like sci-fi, or something created by "conspiracy theorists," but scientists have expressed the same concerned about "worm holes" and "parallel dimensions," while worrying about what is being brought though. A top scientist at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) says that the titanic machine may possibly create or discover previously unimagined scientific phenomena, or "unknown unknowns" - for instance "an extra dimension". "Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it," said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN.

Will progress in Artificial Intelligence provide humanity with a boost of unprecedented strength to realize a better future, or could it present a threat to the very basis of human civilization?
