No, People, Asimov’s Laws Of Robotics Are Not Actual Laws

Posted by in categories: ethics, robotics/AI

Thanks to advances in artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots and warnings by prominent AI researchers that we need to pause AI research lest it destroys society, people have been talking a little more about the ethics of artificial intelligence lately.

The topic is not new: Since people first imagined robots, some have tried to come up with ways of stopping them from seeking out the last remains of humanity hiding in a big field of skulls. Perhaps the most famous example of thinking about how to constrain technology so that it doesn’t destroy humanity comes from fiction: Isaac Asimov’s Laws of Robotics.

Mind-reading machines are here: is it time to worry?

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, ethics, law, neuroscience

Neurotech will bring many amazing positive changes to the world, such as treating ailments like blindness, depression, and epilepsy, giving us superhuman sensory capabilities that allow us to understand the world in new ways, accelerating our ability to cognitively process information, and more. But in an increasingly connected society, neuroprivacy will represent a crucial concern of the future. We must carefully devise legal protections against misuse of “mind reading” technology as well as heavily invest in “neurocybersecurity” R&D to prevent violation of people’s inner thoughts and feelings by authorities and malignant hackers. We can capitalize on the advantages, but we must do establish safety mechanisms as these technologies mature. #neurotechnology #neuroscience #neurotech #computationalbiology #future #brain

Determining how the brain creates meaning from language is enormously difficult, says Francisco Pereira, a neuroscientist at the US National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Maryland. “It’s impressive to see someone pull it off.”‘

Can AI Develop Empathy & Ethics?

Posted by in categories: ethics, robotics/AI

Can we ensure that AI is used ethically? Will AIs themselves develop empathy and ethics? That’s the topic I’d like to discuss today. It’s important.

I recently sat down with Rana el Kaliouby, PhD, AI researcher and Deputy CEO of Smart Eye, at my private CEO Summit Abundance360 to explore these questions. Rana has been focused on this very topic for the past decade.

The Neuroscience of Real Life Monsters: Psychopaths, CEOs, & Politicians (Science on Tap Livestream)

Posted by in categories: biological, ethics, genetics, neuroscience, science

Why do some people live lawful lives, while others gravitate toward repeated criminal behavior? Do people choose to be moral or immoral, or is morality simply a genetically inherited function of the brain? Research suggests that psychopathy as a biological condition explained by defective neural circuits that mediate empathy, but what does that mean when neuroscience is used as evidence in criminal court? How can understanding neuroscience give us an insight into the actions and behaviors of our political leaders?

Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Octavio Choi will explore how emerging neuroscience challenges long-held assumptions underlying the basis—and punishment—of criminal behavior.

‘A gravidez fora do corpo está perto de se tornar realidade’, por Dagomir Marquezi

Posted by in categories: ethics, geopolitics, transhumanism

You can only read this with chrome or a browser that translates to English unless you speak Portuguese. Fascinating read about artificial uteruses in the possible future bought to bring peace to the abortion debate or not, and as a safety measure for an apocalyptic event. This was shared by Zoltan, I think that’s his name, a transhumanist that at one time was hoping to be the first transhumanist elected as president and to base decisions on science or something like that. It’s been a while but he wanted equality and ethics through science/transhumanists goals.

O útero artificial está chegando, para o bem e para o mal. Feministas radicais já lutam pelo direito de matar seus fetos.

Copied from :-

Are you a PhD student working on AI ethics? The 6th AAAI/ACM Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Ethics, and Society (AIES) invites PhD students to apply for the AIES student track, which offers targeted programming, mentorship, and funding to attend AIES in Montreal from August 8–10, 2023. We welcome all disciplines, methods, and backgrounds and strongly encourage applications from underrepresented and/or minoritized students.

Deadline: May 12, 2023

The AIES student track is a competitive program that provides PhD students with targeted programming, mentorship, and financial support to attend AIES. In addition to attending the conference, accepted students present their research in a lightning talk and poster session, participate in breakout groups with peers, and receive mentoring from senior scholars.

Internet Training Data Of ChatGPT Can Be Used For Non-Allied Purposes Including Privacy Intrusions, Frets AI Ethics And AI Law

Posted by in categories: ethics, internet, law, robotics/AI

Keep your eye on the prize, but meanwhile don’t lose sight of other nifty opportunities too. What am I talking about? During the famous Gold Rush era, eager prospectors sought the dreamy riches of unearthed gold. Turns out that very few actually struck it rich by discovering those prized gold nuggets. You might be surprised to know that while panning for gold, there was a possibility of finding other precious metals. The erstwhile feverish desire to get gold would sometimes overpower the willingness to mine silver, mercury, and other ores that were readily seen while searching for gold.

It all has to do with data, particularly data mined or scanned from the Internet that is then used principally to data train generative AI apps.

OpenAI’s ChatGPT and its successor GPT-4 would not exist if it were not for all the data training undertaken to get the AI apps into shape for doing Natural Language Processing (NLP) and performing interactive conversations with humans. The data training entailed scanning various portions of the Internet, see my explanation at the link here. In the case of text-to-text or text-to-essay generative AI, the mainstay of ChatGPT, all kinds of text were scanned to ferret out patterns of how humans use words.

The biggest fear with AI is fear itself | De Kai | TEDxSanMigueldeAllende

Posted by in categories: ethics, existential risks, media & arts, robotics/AI

In this talk, De Kai examines how AI amplifies fear into an existential threat to society and humanity, and what we need to be doing about it. De Kai’s work across AI, language, music, creativity, and ethics centers on enabling cultures to interrelate. For pioneering contributions to machine learning of AIs like Google/Yahoo/Microsoft Translate, he was honored by the Association for Computational Linguistics as one of only seventeen Founding Fellows worldwide and by Debrett’s HK 100 as one of the 100 most influential figures of Hong Kong. De Kai is a founding Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at HKUST and Distinguished Research Scholar at Berkeley’s ICSI (International Computer Science Institute). His public campaign applying AI to show the impact of universal masking against Covid received highly influential mass media coverage, and he serves on the board of AI ethics think tank The Future Society. De Kai is also creator of one of Hong Kong’s best known world music collectives, ReOrientate, and was one of eight inaugural members named by Google to its AI ethics council. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
