AI would be better than our current leaders.

The slippery slope to skynet. Looking forward to having no idea if the users online are legit people or AI pretending. Crazy times

At least robots would likely just replace and remove us... might be better than an authoritarian theocracy.

Sounds like something a bot would say... sus /s

I have no idea of what you are speaking. I am a real human person much like the TedcruZ. We are one being and not many inhabitants of a single host entity.

Granted AI is incapable of malice unless programmed, I’d trust an AI more than I would the word of a man, more so if said man was a politician.

“Malice” is something we ascribe to a person with intent. An AI is not capable of intent, which is why it’s not capable of malice. But that also means it cannot exist independently than humans. It will always be a tool humans make and humans evaluate. So, you’re still going to be choosing between humans, not an AI against a human.

And unfortunately, though the AI cannot have malice, it can fail successfully. Consider giving the AI a directive “minimize long-term human suffering.” It may determine that killing everyone instantly is the best way to guarantee that. Qualifying that reward policy is harder than you think.

You’re right. Let’s add that malice is a human trait, but so is morality. Something AI are also incapable of. So of course it can potentially give you such instructions, or any immoral act; or so I believe.

Currently incapable of*.

I don't think it's impossible, through a most likely very far off development that actually builds a capable trained dataset at extreme levels of refinement.

Oh, it's capable of being extremely malicious. Not sure if you got the memo, these things are not programmed in any traditional sense of the word.

Actually it is programmed some. If you search about things the programmer deemed inappropriate, it will tell you so. Also avoids using vulgar language at the programmers requests.

No, they use libraries full of context to try and match the best response based on inquiry. At least that’s the basic gist of it. And by malice I meant more that the program itself would be capable of independently and purposefully causing inconveniences.
