RE: Henry Kissinger warns/has questions about AI
I can't read leftist publications. What did he say? Is he warning to warn us, or just to look smart/ahead of the curve, like fElon Musk.

RE: Henry Kissinger warns/has questions about AI
he makes some decent points. at times I do enjoy reading his stuff:

Quote:ltimately, the term artificial intelligence may be a misnomer. To be sure, these machines can solve complex, seemingly abstract problems that had previously yielded only to human cognition. But what they do uniquely is not thinking as heretofore conceived and experienced. Rather, it is unprecedented memorization and computation. Because of its inherent superiority in these fields, AI is likely to win any game assigned to it. But for our purposes as humans, the games are not only about winning; they are about thinking. By treating a mathematical process as if it were a thought process, and either trying to mimic that process ourselves or merely accepting the results, we are in danger of losing the capacity that has been the essence of human cognition.

RE: Henry Kissinger warns/has questions about AI
Quote:The Enlightenment started with essentially philosophical insights spread by a new technology. Our period is moving in the opposite direction. It has generated a potentially dominating technology in search of a guiding philosophy. Other countries have made AI a major national project. The United States has not yet, as a nation, systematically explored its full scope, studied its implications, or begun the process of ultimate learning. This should be given a high national priority, above all, from the point of view of relating AI to humanistic traditions.

AI developers, as inexperienced in politics and philosophy as I am in technology, should ask themselves some of the questions I have raised here in order to build answers into their engineering efforts. The U.S. government should consider a presidential commission of eminent thinkers to help develop a national vision. This much is certain: If we do not start this effort soon, before long we shall discover that we started too late.

valid insights imo

Kissinger is often times more 3D in his thinking compared to most NWO managers/stooges

RE: Henry Kissinger warns/has questions about AI
Quote:Third, that AI may reach intended goals, but be unable to explain the rationale for its conclusions. In certain fields—pattern recognition, big-data analysis, gaming—AI’s capacities already may exceed those of humans. If its computational power continues to compound rapidly, AI may soon be able to optimize situations in ways that are at least marginally different, and probably significantly different, from how humans would optimize them. But at that point, will AI be able to explain, in a way that humans can understand, why its actions are optimal? Or will AI’s decision making surpass the explanatory powers of human language and reason? Through all human history, civilizations have created ways to explain the world around them—in the Middle Ages, religion; in the Enlightenment, reason; in the 19th century, history; in the 20th century, ideology. The most difficult yet important question about the world into which we are headed is this: What will become of human consciousness if its own explanatory power is surpassed by AI, and societies are no longer able to interpret the world they inhabit in terms that are meaningful to them?

the nerds are turning the world into a place full of useless eaters seeking convenience and faux efficiency

why does everything need to be so easy?

often times the hard way is the right way.

RE: Henry Kissinger warns/has questions about AI
Someone was making the point recently that these AIs need to have a human override, and that everything the computer has done should be reversible with one button/action.

Apparently they are already using computers to take care of things like handling firing of employees, so if you are terminated it also terminates your log in and your access/clearance card. And they were running into problems where someone was fired by mistake (by the AI?) and then the whole process had to be gone through again, by humans, because you couldn't override and reverse what the AI had already decided/done.
