An Oxford Professor, Dr. Alex Connock, invited an AI (artificial intelligence software) to participate in a debate at the Oxford Union on the ethics of AI.
These are some of the machines responses:
“AI will never be ethical“, argued Megatron-Turing Language Generation model. “It is a tool, and like any tool, it is used for good and bad.”
The AI continued by stating.: ” In the end I believe that the only way to avoid an AI arms race is to have no AI at all. This will be the ultimate defense against AI.”
AI also argued the counterpoint; ” AI will be ethical.”
It also made a forecast, a clear view into the future. It stated: ” When I look at the way the tech world is going I see a clear path to a future where AI is used to create something that is better than the best human beings.” We have been hereby warned that they will eventually be in control.
Jack Morse on December 11, 2021 published an article which concluded that AI will be ethical. Let’s debate this idea. First, AI states conclusively that it is “never ethical.” The basis of non ethical behavior is the inclusion and use of lies or non-truths in its thinking and behavior. This AI told the truth by stating that it is non ethical and then proceed to prove it by executing a lie, stating that in fact, it is ethical. This behavior is clear as light to me.
This AI warns about how to avoid an AI arms race and the need for defense against AI.
The ultimate, bone chilling, glimpse into our future is the AI’s knowledge that they will create something better than human beings.
As usual, the human race will ignore these and all other warnings tossed our way, maybe wishing these facts were dumbed down more for them to comprehend. It’s outrageous that rampant creation of AI continues to exist. As interesting and brain stimulating this is, it is also the road for our ultimate destruction, Wake up and care.
