Humans claim to be rational and have some kind of intelligence. But I would argue that is only a small part of what we are. We have all kind of motivations for doing or not doing all kind of things that are not rational and often downright bonkers.
Makes you wonder if we do make AI's will they do bonkers things too?
Not sure you could say humans are intelligent till older than 50 or 60?
This just got confirmed for me watching Sargon's take on the Scottish Parliament taking a knee to BLM.
Whilst we seem to have made a start on creating a mechanical intelligence I don't see that we are close to all the other behaviours humans have.
That might be a good thing?
Specific machine intelligence seems to be here.
General AI is still some ways away.
Tesla's autopilot is now probably better than average human drivers.
It is the edge cases that are not trained for that are the issue.
Will a General AI emerge if trained for everything?
And how could anyone tell the difference?
As far as I know there is no random element in AI. The algorithms are just computer programs and as such they are as deterministic as any other computer programs.
An interesting point.
Rule of Law requires Government decisions to be based on facts determined from the evidence.
When an algorithm makes a decisions then the facts and evidence should be available and known.
In Oz we had the RoboDebt AI go nuts and basically fine people based on predicted averages from historical data.
Now something like $700M must be paid back to people.
Was it the AI or the data or the programmer?
If the RoboDebt system cannot print out the evidence and facts then it is an arbitrary government AI decision.
All that legislation Parliaments make?
It is supposed to be there to protect people from arbitrary gov decisions.
When AI's are arbitrary, have we achieved parity with humans?
Now we have IBM, Amazon etc holding off on face recognition software and the first US legal case of face recog being used as the sole evidence.
Drawing the line for AI is getting interesting.
AI's and humans are now bumping heads with the laws in Rule of Law societies.
We can no longer think about AI's without considering laws and society.
This is actually a good thing.
Now if only we could reprogram some humans.
