    I find it obvious the same elites who push for online surveillance and "real identities", also push for decrased global population. Almost like they face data overload, as their databases would be saturated by junk data on billions of people.

    Elon Musk to US Politicians: Regulate AI Technology Before ‘it’s Too Late’

    Elon Musk to US politicians: regulate AI technology before ‘it’s too late’

    BILLIONAIRE Elon Musk has issued a dire warning to US politicians over AI research, saying they need to act before “it’s too late”.

    MACHINES imbued with general intelligence and self learning pose a “fundamental risk to the existence of human civilisation”.
    That’s the message delivered by Silicon Valley Billionaire Elon Musk to a group of US politicians on the weekend.
    The CEO of Tesla Motors and Space X met with a group of US politicians to discuss laws around electric autonomous vehicles but also told them they need to act to ensure we avoid welcoming killer robots into the world.
    “Until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react because it seems so ethereal,” he said about the tech sector’s furious pursuit of artificial intelligence.
    “AI is a rare case where I think we need to be proactive in regulation instead of reactive. Because I think by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it’s too late.”
    Elon Musk has been sounding the alarm on AI general intelligence for years and believes government regulation could struggle to keep pace with rapidly advancing AI research.
    “Normally the way regulations are set up is a while bunch of bad things happen, there’s a public outcry, and after many years a regulatory agency is set up to regulate that industry,” he said. “It takes forever.
    “That, in the past, has been bad but not something which represented a fundamental risk to the existence of civilisation. AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilisation.”

    Last month it was revealed that AI-powered Facebook bots designed to negotiate with one another created their own non-human language to communicate in.

    Because there was no reward for sticking to English, the bot-to-bot conversation “led to divergence from human language as the agents developed their own language for negotiating,” a report from Facebook said.
    While it appeared to be mostly gibberish it was an interesting discovery that given the freedom, the machine learning algorithm sought to effectively create a robotic shorthand.
    The researchers ultimately required its bots to only speak in English however depending on the desired outcome, the alternative would likely be more efficient. The trade-off is that we, as humanity, would have no clue what those machines were actually saying to one another which raises the question: do we want to be able to eavesdrop on what our machines are saying?
    The Facebook example is by no means the first glimpse of singularity. But ostensibly, this is the kind of thing Musk wants politicians to be thinking seriously about.
    The point of his meeting with US governors was to reiterate his long-held argument that proactive regulation is needed to protect humanity from being outsmarted by computers, or “deep intelligence in the network” that can start wars by manipulating information, the Associated Press reported.
    Pressed for more specific guidance by Colorado Govenor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, and Arizona Govenor Doug Ducey, a Republican, Musk said the first step is for government to get a better understanding of the fast-moving achievements in developing artificial intelligence technology.
    “Once there is awareness, people will be extremely afraid, as they should be,” Musk said.

    This very real and very scary problem could go unnoticed while human traitors flood our lands with Africans and other third worlders. The human chaos thus created might prevent us from finding solutions to the AI problem and implementing them. Only homogeneous societies work, and this is a point in time where they really need to work.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Elon Musk Fears A.I. Could Lead to ‘Immortal Dictator’ Humanity ‘Can Never Escape’

    Elon Musk Fears A.I. Could Lead to ‘Immortal Dictator’ Humanity ‘Can Never Escape’

    In a documentary by American filmmaker Chris Paine, billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk warned that artificial intelligence “doesn’t have to be evil to destroy humanity.”

    Elon Musk has a seemingly infinite number of thoughts regarding the future of humanity, and he is more than willing to speculate. In Paine’s documentary, Musk discusses the potential for an artificial superintelligence beyond our means of control:

    The least scary future I can think of is one where we have at least democratized AI because if one company or small group of people manages to develop godlike digital superintelligence, they could take over the world. At least when there’s an evil dictator, that human is going to die. But for an AI, there would be no death. It would live forever. And then you’d have an immortal dictator from which we can never escape.

    The documentary references everything from “fake news” bots to The Matrix, pulling from both real-world and popular culture examples to shape a vision of the future in which the human race has created something for which they were not prepared. The antidote, then, is that very preparation. But what do you do to thwart something created and functioning with even the best of intentions?

    “If AI has a goal and humanity just happens to be in the way, it will destroy humanity as a matter of course without even thinking about it. No hard feelings,” Musk theorized. “It’s just like, if we’re building a road and an anthill just happens to be in the way, we don’t hate ants, we’re just building a road, and so, goodbye anthill.”

    Musk’s Neuralink was created with the intent to merge humans and AI to keep us from too easily becoming irrelevant in a world populated by machines that can behave as we do but think in dimensions of complexity of which our natural biology is incapable. Others seek to regulate the advancement of the technology itself, ensuring that intelligent autonomous weapons do not march on the gates of mankind. Right now, robots loom large in the world’s consciousness. Only time will tell whether Musk’s vision for a cyborg future will pave the way for humanity to keep up, or merely introduce a new potential dystopia.

    Artificial intelligence can act as a double edged sword, either in our favor or to our disadvantage. While right now, artificial intelligence is not sufficiently developed to enslave or completely eradicate humans, let's consider the future. AI is rapidly evolving and doing things we formerly did not think to be possible. But we have also seen AI get out of hand:











    At this point it is possible for humans to still control and shut down AI. But what about a future where most things will work based on computer and digitization? Where some systems are designed to never crash or go offline?

    Do you believe it's a possibility that AI as a whole gets so out of hand or that it sees humans as a threat? Or perhaps as subservient? Why or why not?

    There should be a limit on artificial intelligence, say an IQ of 70, and always several ways to switch off a robot. But such safeguards will probably be ignored because they would 'limit economic growth' - the same reason given for all kinds of evils.
