Professor in the Research School of Computer Science at Australian National University
Way before the singularity, even when setting up a virtual society in our imagine, there are likely some immediate difference, for example that the value of an individual life suddenly drops, with drastic consequences.
Mathematician, computer scientist, and pioneer in the field of artificial intelligence
The ultimate risk comes when our greedy, lazy, masterminds are able at last to take that final step: to design goal-achieving programs which are programmed to make themselves grow increasingly powerful.
AI researcher who popularized the idea of friendly artificial intelligence
Yudkowsky argues that as AI systems become increasingly intelligent, new formal tools will be needed in order to avert default incentives for harmful behavior, as well as to inductively teach correct behavior.
Moral philosopher at Oxford University. His work focuses on the big picture questions.
His current research is on avoiding the threat of human extinction and thus safeguarding a positive future for humanity... He is a leading expert on the potential threats and opportunities posed by advanced artificial intelligence over the coming decades
New and available technologies will increasingly allow multinational brands and retailers to bring production closer to markets. Ultimately, ASEAN’s TCF [textile, clothing and footwear] sector may no longer offer jobs to millions who are looking for formal employment opportunities.
Let's think hard now about the rights of thinking machines, so that well before recursive self-improvement arrives we can test our conclusions in the real world with machines that are only slightly aware of their goals. If, as I predict, we thereby discover that our best effort at such ethics fails utterly even at that early stage, maybe such work will cease.
The real danger, then, is not machines that are more intelligent than we are usurping our role as captains of our destinies. The real danger is basically clueless machines being cededauthority far beyond their competence.
