Very good video. Thanks.
I don’t know if AI is out of control yet. At least people are thinking about ways to control it however. The issue is going to be how rapidly the field is changing versus how rapidly laws can be written, adopted and enforced. And how rapidly the laws can change as technology evolves.
7 years ago I would have been more alarmed, as I really thought we’d be further along by now than we are. I believe it was Bill Gates who said we over-estimate near-term gains (like I did, and Elon did with the robo-taxi) but under-estimate long-term gains. So maybe I should still be worried.
I am most worried about autonomous weapons myself. And their ability to cause wide spread war. A Franz Ferdinand event maybe. Or an AI mis-identifying a target in a really bad manner.
My second biggest fears are social media manipulation, which admittedly has already happened and very likely successfully influenced Brexit and the 2016 US presidential election. I think it is high time for social media to have what amounts to a “know your customer” law, they need to know accounts are real people and not bots.
And we thought that the discovery of how to split big atoms, and combine tiny atoms, to make lots of energy had a scary mix of good and bad consequences.
But as far as Apple Music? It’s doing pretty good for me. I want that AI to keep evolving.
