Just heard Joseph Sirosh interviewed on BBC Click, and it had me feeling uneasy. He was asked what AI was and wittily answered that it might be the opposite of "natural stupidity". Then he asked what he wished for AI systems - and he said "instant learning". Now I was ruminating. It sounds good, "instant learning". But there can be nothing instant about learning, even to a machine. It would require the machine, and us, to accept the things we can learn without questioning. That is not really learning. It is parroting the thoughts and ideas of others. Naturally, a highly paid ecxecutive needs to provide exciting prospects for consumers. I get concerned when the solutions of tomorrow have no determinist path, when they create reality rather than enhance it. Perhaps they are creating it on behalf of greedy multinationals, weapons producers, regime stakeholders. How does morality figure in any AI intelligence scenario?
