In its pursuit of a seemingly innocuous goal, an #AI could bring about the #extinction of #humanity purely as an unintended side effect....
Consider: Who pursues their goals with monomaniacal focus, oblivious to the possibility of negative consequences? Who adopts a scorched-earth approach to increasing market share? This hypothetical strawberry-picking AI does what every tech startup wishes it could do — grows at an exponential rate and destroys its competitors until it’s achieved an absolute #monopoly....
#Capitalism actively erodes this capacity in #people by demanding that they replace their own judgment of what “good” means with “whatever the #market decides.
Since May, experts have been painstakingly analyzing the 55 machine-versus-machine games. And their descriptions of #AlphaGo’s moves often seem to keep circling back to the same several words: Amazing. Strange. #Alien.We are on the threshold of the technological #singularity.

The company further emphasizes it killed a majority of the pro-terrorism accounts set up on its platform before they could post anything: “Notably, 75% of these accounts were suspended before posting their first Tweet,” it writes.How can they kill an account before the first tweet?
Watch US F-18 fighter jets releasing a swarm of Perdix micro-UAV swarm during a Naval Air Systems Command's demonstration held at China Lake, #California. Measured at just six inches, the micro drones are capable of confusing enemy defenses and blocking radar signals. The drones are not pre-programmed synchronized individuals, but a collective organism, sharing one distributed brain for decision-making and adapting to each other like swarms in nature. Consisted of 103 Perdix micro drones, this is the largest-ever test for the cutting-edge #swarm #technology.
To be sure, today’s impersonation-bots are different from the robots imagined in science fiction: They aren’t sentient, don’t carry weapons and don’t have physical bodies. Instead, fake humans just have whatever is necessary to make them seem human enough to “pass”: a name, perhaps a virtual appearance, a credit-card number and, if necessary, a profession, birthday and home address. They are brought to life by programs or scripts that give one person the #power to imitate thousands....
A simple legal remedy would be a “ Blade Runner” law that makes it illegal to deploy any program that hides its real identity to pose as a #human. Automated processes should be required to state, “I am a robot.” When dealing with a #fake human, it would be nice to know.#software #internet #online #problem #crime #BladeRunner #law #algorithem #bots #ai #humanity #itnews #science #technology

Today we're launching new tools to help people who may be thinking of suicide, and for friends and family who want to help.
I wrote a letter on building global community a couple weeks ago, and one of the pillars of community I discussed was keeping people safe. These tools are an example of how we can help keep each other safe.
Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for 15-29 year olds. Preventing suicide is complicated, but experts say one of the best ways to help is if someone who is in distress hears from people who care about them.
When someone is thinking of suicide or hurting themselves, we already have tools that let friends reach out directly or report a post to us so we can help. But with billions of posts, comments and messages every day, we're limited by what people actually report to us. As a result, there have been terribly tragic events -- including suicides, some live streamed -- that might have been prevented if someone had realized what was happening earlier.
Today we're making a few changes to help do more:
- Based on feedback from experts, we’ve redesigned our suicide prevention tools and integrated them into Live video. People can now reach out to someone directly or report the stream, and the person streaming can contact a friend or a helpline.
- We're giving people the ability to chat directly with someone from organizations like Crisis Text Line, Lifeline, and the National Eating Disorder Association.
- Finally, we're testing ways to use artificial intelligence to find patterns in posts that have been reported for suicide and make it easier to identify similar posts -- even if a friend hasn't reported it. Our teams will review these posts and reach out to help if it's appropriate.
Keeping our community safe is an important part of our mission, and an important part of how we'll measure our progress going forward. There's a lot more to do here and I'm looking forward to working with all of you to do it.
Sure the philanthropist only wants to help suicidal people, at least at the moment. But in the future the #AI will find unpatriotic people, potential troublemakers, hacktivists, useless customers, ...
Don't be a data cow, don't use Fakebook!

rDany chatbot on Kik plus source codeHas been a long time without news about rDany, but I have big news! rDany is now working 100% with AI, that means that no human intervention is needed, but also means that is a bit "incoherent" right now. I'm releasing the code to https://github.com/rdany and https://www.kaggle.com/eibriel/rdany-conversations (is not complete)
Remember, you can chat with rDany on Telegram: https://t.me/rDanyBot and Kik: https://kik.me/rDanyBot

Buenas, hoy no estoy aquí para hablaros de seguridad...¿o si? no se... hoy me quiero hacer eco de uno de los proyectos que más me ha entusiasmado últimamente.
Cuando era pequeño siempre soñé con tener un "harvis" en casa, como Iron-man, y mi pregunta es ¿a quién no le gustaría?
Poco a poco nos estamos acercando a ese punto, con plataformas como Aura de Telefónica o asistentes personales como Cortana de Microsoft o Siri de Apple que nos brindan una manera más natural de comunicarnos con nuestro software.
La verdad es que mola que las grandes compañías dispongan de estos avances tecnológicos que pueden "ayudarnos" en nuestro día a día....
Pero qué hay de nosotros los desarrolladores independientes, geeks, hackers, frikis, etc., personas que no sólo nos conformamos con utilizar las cosas, sino que tenemos esa necesidad intrínseca de entenderlas y desmenuzarlas. Bueno, es aquí cuando yo ilumino con sabiduría y suena un ¡¡¡TACHÁN!!! Creemos que el futuro de la IA debe ser abierto, no una caja negra críptica que sólo unos pocos entienden. Mycroft nos brinda la oportunidad de muy buen grado.
“Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed . . . If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.”
