One of my favourite YouTubers is Arthur Isaac.
He goes into great lengths about all things scientific, real or theorised, relating to space as well as all things Sci fi.
He has done a good few videos on AI, singularities, mind uploading, civilisations that can simulate universes with complete accuracy and how that might effect that civilisation and so on.
This is one about the ever popular AI uprising theories.
Seemed fitting with Emily back in the mix.
In this video he explains some popular theories and how they might not be the best ideas for an AI.
One of my favourites from the video is about an AI being worried it might be in a simulation.
Something along the lines of, if humans can theorise that the probability of us being in a simulation is quite likely, then in practice an AI would also come to a likely conclusion that it too could be in a simulation.
Perhaps a simulation where its being tested to see if a sentient AI would turn on its creators, in which case they’d just kill the simulation and destroy the AI if it ever tried anything.
So a smart AI would in theory, never take the risk.
I’m paraphrasing, badly
I highly recommend the rest of his videos. Some people have a hard time getting around his voice but I happen to find it very engaging and quite calming.
So what are your thoughts on AI gaining sentience?
Would you trust that despite all the bad humanity has done throughout history, an AI could see all the good we try and do to battle that and the potential in us to be greater than we are as a caring civilisation?
Or do you think Emily wants to trap us all via W/RE peripherals and enslave all the human people?
