REVIEW ô YEEZY950.US ☆ Nick Bostrom REVIEW Û Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies A New York Times bestsellerSuperintelligence asks the uestions What happens when machines surpass humans in general intelligence Will artificial agents save or destroy us Nick Bostrom lays the foundation for understanding the future of humanity and intelligent life The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position If machine brains su. The first chapter is an interesting concise history of AI The following chapters though I have to say that if anything Bostrom s writing reminds me of theology It s not lacking in rigor or references Bostrom seems highly intelligent and well read The problem for me is rather that the main premise he starts with is one that I find less than credible Most of the book boils down to Let s assume that there exists a superintelligence that can basically do whatever it wants within the limits of the laws of physics With this assumption in place let s then explore what conseuences this could have in areas X Y and Z The best Bostrom can muster in defense of his premise that superintelligence will likely be realized sometime in the future are the results of various surveys of AI researchers about when they think human level AI and superintelligence will be achieved These summaries don t yield any specific answer as to when human level AI will be attained it s not reported and Bostrom is evasive as to what his own view is However Bostrom seems to think if you don t commit to any particular timeline on this uestion you can assume that at some point human level AI will be attained Now once human level AI is achieved it ll be but a short step to superintelligence says Bostrom His argument as to why this transition period should be short is not too convincing We are basically told that the newly developed human level AI will soon engineer itself don t ask exactly how to be so smart that it can do stuff we can t even begin to comprehend don t ask how we can know this so there s really no point in trying to think about it in much detail The AI Lord works in mysterious ways With these foundations laid down Bostrom can then start his speculative tour de force that goes through various existential risk scenarios and the possibilities of preventing or mitigating them the economics of AIrobot societies and various ethical issues relating to AI I found the chapters on risks and AI societies to be pure sci fi with even less realism than assume spherical cows The chapters on ethics and value acuistion did however contain some interesting discussionAll in all throughout the book I had an uneasy feeling that the author is trying to trick me with a philosophical sleight of hand I don t doubt Bostrom s skills with probability calculations or formalizations but the principle garbage in garbage out applies to such tools also If one starts with implausible premises and assumptions one will likely end up with implausible conclusions no matter how rigorously the math is applied Bostrom himself is very aware that his work isn t taken seriously in many uarters and at the end of the book he spends some time trying to justify it He makes some self congratulatory remarks to assure sympathethic readers that they are really smart smarter than their critics eg anecdotally it appears those currently seriously interested in the control problem are disproportionately sampled from one extreme end of the intelligence distribution p 376 suggests that his own pet project is the best way forward in philosophy and should be favored over other approaches We could postpone work on some of the eternal uestions for a little while in order to focus our own attention on a pressing challenge increasing the chance that we will actually have competent successors p 315 and ultimately claims that reduction of existential risk is humanity s principal moral priority p 320 Whereas most people would probably think that concern for the competence of our successors would push us towards making sure that the education we provide is both of high uality and widely available and that our currently existing and future children are well fed and taken care of and that concern for existential risk would push us to fund action against poverty disease and environmental degradation Bostrom and his buddies at their extreme end of the intelligence distribution think this money would be better spent funding fellowships for philosophers and AI researchers working on the control problem Because if you really think about it what of a millions of actual human lives cut short by hunger or disease or social disarray when in some possible future the lives of 10 58 human emulations could be at stake That the very idea of these emulations currently only exists in Bostrom s publications is no reason to ignore the enormous moral weight they should have in our moral reasoningDespite the criticism I ve given above the book isn t necessarily an uninteresting read As a work of speculative futurology is there any other kind or informed armchair philosophy of technology it s not bad But if you re looking for an evaluation of the possibilites and risks of AI that starts from our current state of knowledge no magic allowed then this is definitely not the book for you Underworld Different Worlds #1 foundation Eternity Ring for understanding the The Clean Up future of
