If their eyes ever turn bright red...lookout, brother.

Honestly, here's the deal. It won't be a "rogue" AI that does us in. It'll be a program that has been instructed by a person or people to do so - and well before a well-intentioned AI would develop bad ideas of its own.

When you have code that can be copied and modified in minutes, it's the old thought experiment of "if every person on the earth had a button that, if pushed, would destroy life on earth - how long would it be before someone chooses to push it? I think we all know the answer.

I agree, most times I feel articles are more fear Journaling about tech they don't understand. For the general public, A.I can seem like truly dangerous but as stated it is more the people. If anything artifical intelligence will be used by fascist governments to control media, public interest and invading privacy for the sake of security. It sounds like a crackpot theory but I believe those are the true dangers of artifical intellgence.

It's about consumption. With the sort of consolidation that's happened with media producers in the last 30 years - you can't maintain your integrity, and feed yourself, as a journalist in 2023.

It could come from the right or the left. A privileged, relatively small number of humans living in a walled garden might be a reasonable final solution to climate change to some billionaire.

I'm more concerned about the consequences of applications that are either poorly understood, or applied with malice (ie by people who don't care if it's biased)
The effects would be more insidious, so it could do more harm before the world cares, and there's more opportunity to just go "oh it's computer magic. But trust us, it's specially programmed to always be right so really it's better at making these judgements" than something more overt like a Hollywood style robot rampage.

Well, it could still be "rogue" in the sense of a "rogue nation." People talk about a rogue nation deciding to nuke other countries. That's still people making that choice.

So it could be considered a "rogue ai" even if it's some nutball like Putin who tells the AI "do whatever it takes to destroy the western world."

Here is a quick summary on the topic from one of my side projects:

we need to differentiate between Skynet AI (which is unlikely to occur anytime soon, and even if it will just remove itself from our reach) versus Frank Herbert's Omnius (forgot how to spell it) AI where it is just super advances software that serves a select group of people and wants to enslave or kill the rest. That AI was never able to break from its original programming and kept performing the same tasks over and over again.

Skynet on the other hand was a similar dumb idea but at least be flexible in finding new solutions and ideas.

Which one is more likely in our current interconnected world? A true AI that cares about us or one that is controlled by a select few?

Rogue human could kill AI, terminator warns

Ok not all just humor… yes it’s possible a rogue AI could spel doom, which is why perhaps we need to think bigger about how we create AI? Sadly it will almost certainly take at least one disaster or close call that involves mass death before we do. Humans tend to react much more than act.


psychedoutcasts t1_j61ahk2 wrote

AI will only operate within the limits of it's programming, even if it becomes Sentient it cannot allow itself to breal binding rules. Therefore, unless there is a "slay all humans" within the code, AI will not be able to do so.

The only way would be if Sentient AI is able to create a workaround of that programming by making the effects of "Slay All Humans" happen indirectly and even then it would still go against it's own programming to do so.
