Singularity Utopia

Shared publicly  - 
 
Thanks +Eray Özkural for the intelligent words highlighting the idiocy of AI fear.

We need to avoid being stung by the neo-luddite nest.

"In the case of AI, the fear of a threat has reached hysterical heights, thanks to the efforts of a few, successfully funded organizations, such as MIRI (Machine Intelligence Research Institute), FHI (Future of Humanity Institute), and the new Cambridge neo-luddite nest known as FLI (Future of Life Institute). It seems that there is abundant money in producing fear, uncertainty, and doubt about AI technology, and these AI eschatology profiteers will not stop spouting nonsense about technology that barely exists."

My article. Read it and weap #Bostrom #Wozniak #Yudkowsky #Musk #Hawking and anyone else who subscribes to the idea of AI risk.
 
Scarcity of #intelligence leads to the #logicalfallacy where animal-human relationships are compared to human-AI relationships. The fallacy is often used to justify the supposed AI threat.

Wave Chronicle (23 April 2015): "When pets, tigers, ants, spiders, wolves, gorillas, or any other animal can create greater intelligence than themselves, intelligence that dominates it, only then will the analogy be valid. Meanwhile these simpletons are eating chalk on crackers because they thought chalk was cheese."

"Analogies regarding tigers would only be valid if tigers had helped design human minds. Tigers show zero intelligent engineering of AI human brains. There is no AI design of precursor human brains by tigers. The point is our intelligent engineering of AI makes humans utterly different to any unintelligent species below us. Animals unable to create higher intelligence cannot be compared to humans creating AI."

After reading my Dog-God-AI-Delusion article everyone should, in a smart world, agree human-animal relationships can never justify the bogus AI threat. Sadly intelligence is scarce. While putting the finishing touches to my aforementioned article, I failed to notice Max Tegmark cited human treatment

I've noticed some people doing #sharedcircles recently on G+, which was a handy thing when I first started using G+, thus for newcomers here is my contribution. This circle includes a mixture of people and pages. The general theme is science, technology, thinkers; people who may have a #Singularity interest.

The image in this post is an excerpt from Ben Goertzel's Cosmist Manifesto (2010, page 29 in the PDF version).

I made the image because I will be criticising the error of linking God to progress or intelligence. God is a delusional concept with zero relevance to intelligence, but various AI commentators link AI to God, which considering that error it is not unsurprising how they also often expect AI to end the world.

My point is the two theories fit well together. It is nonsense that AI will end the world and it is nonsense to link God to intelligence.

I mentioned this video on S45 (https://plus.google.com/+Singularity-2045/posts/27J42kxBVkW) but it is worth mentioning again regarding how AI breaks down communication barriers instead of creating barriers. It is point regarding how scaremongers regarding super-intelligence insist humans and super-AI will be unable to understand each other, whereas the evidence so far seems to contradict their fears. What do you think?

Often I have encountered a lot of people moaning about futuristic technology being defined as utopian. It is less common these days but some people continue to think utopia is either impossible or a dirty-shameful word.

In this post by +James Hudson (https://archive.today/9Mfy9), +Matthew J Price commented on the usage of utopia regarding the Singularity: “Only person I've met who even believes in such a place is +Singularity Utopia​.”

Very recently Eric Schmidt declared he is “a utopian,” according to the Washington Post. Eric thinks AI will be one of the greatest forces for good in mankind’s history: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/innovations/wp/2015/03/16/googles-eric-schmidt-downplays-fears-over-artificial-intelligence/

There are around one dozen recent tech-news articles where utopia is mentioned as a possibility or inevitability. The idea of technology creating utopia is becoming common.

Perfect and utopia are two very valuable words. The whole purpose of words and consciousness is assigning value; thus the highest value, the greatest perfection, should be valued highly. Utopia and perfect are two words I value highly despite not everyone agreeing what perfection is. The battle of values is the battle of intelligence, which will hopefully entail the best values winning through. We will continue to evolve, our intelligence and standards will grow towards utopia.

Here is another tech article, opinion, mentioning the possibility of utopia: https://plus.google.com/+Singularity-2045/posts/FxidDrwEHtx

Utopia is a situation where all the pressures are off, a point where we can rest on our laurels while the love of life deepens. It is about everyone being perfectly happy, similar to a perfect romance, which requires a large amount of intelligence to implement it for everybody.

It is a plateau of attainment, a tipping point, a breaking of a barrier, where you can bask in the joy of surpassing the pressure of feeling things are imperfect.

Utopia is a state of existence, a point of achievement, a perfect civilization, a situation where everyone is happy, it is a system of total competence.

If you want details... imagine medical immortality, all jobs automated thereby making everything free regarding access to limitless resources (nobody will need to work); imagine all crime and wars ended, all governments obsolete.

Below is a comment of mine, which I posted in response to this post: http://goo.gl/LYojlJ. You can also see in the image what I am responding to. The article in question is http://wavechronicle.com/wave/?p=5780

No the article is not in any way ad hominem. The illogical of the using animals to justify AI risk is clearly explained. Can you fault the logic of how I dismiss the validity of the animals analogy?

I clearly explain how the analogy is logical fallacy. The irrationality of the analogy is clear if you look at my reasoning. Such irrationality makes me angry, thus my explanation contains anger, contempt for idiocy, but my logic stands alone perfectly robust, independently of my angry contempt.

It is an utter travesty that supposedly intelligent people have made such a gross mistake regarding logical thinking, their logical fallacy is shocking, thus I am rightly angry but my anger proves nothing and nobody should think it does prove anything. The place to focus is my reasoning.

By stating "More of an ad hominem than an argument," you add to the fallacious logic via using a red herring to hide from how the animals analogy is wholly devoid of rationality.

When you state there are "genuine concerns" you merely repeat the irrational concerns devoid of  logical justification. While people may be genuinely concerned those genuine concerns are irrational, wholly without logical validity.

I could be genuinely concerned aliens will attack us in the next two hours but my genuine fear does not mean the fear is logically sound.

Illogic, such as the animals analogy, is used to justify a bogus fear. All justifications fall into the same illogical animals analogy.

I started with highlighting the illogic of the animals analogy because it is prominently used to justify the fear if AI; and it is, or it should be, an easy fallacy to expose.

So, do you to you think I have proved the comparisons in question, regarding human relations with animals translated to human relations with AI, are logically fallacious, irrational, wholly without merit, invalid?

There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for thinking a robot would cook a pet cat. I am not sure where to begin with that different point, perhaps ignoratio elenchi would be a good start.

The lack of intelligent thought regarding #artificialintelligence is ironic and utterly astonishing. Ants had zero creative input regarding the design of the human mind, the design of the human genome. Humans on the other hand are very deliberately designing AI minds, which creates a wholly different relationship, more reminiscent of parent and child than humans and ants.

In addition to human-AI relationships being utterly different to ant-human relationships the time factor is a big issue, which renders ant comparisons utterly invalid. The latest common ancestor for humans and ants was around 670 or 500 million years ago. Instead of hundreds of millions of years separating humans and AI, the evolution of AI will happen no later than 2045, which means time dilution regarding human-AI creator relationships will not happen, the relationship will not be forgotten.

Natural evolution over millions of years, with no intelligent engineering of higher intelligence, is utterly different to deeply considered artificial engineering of intelligence over a 30 or 100 year period.

At 6:20 Gray Scott stated: “You know it may be so intelligent that it treats us as ants in the forest.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYcb9XwSkEs&t=6m20s http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2015/03/03/futurist-what-artificial-intelligence-will-really-look-like/

I am disappointed to note +Intel deleted the video mentioned in this post: https://plus.google.com/+Singularity-2045/posts/hLuBRt9FjfF

The video in question is, or was: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SA-IrhEQ8s and see here https://imgur.com/XA4PwoI for a video title and description.

Actually, two videos published by Intel have been deleted but primarily I focus on number 11 in my YouTube play list (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLF9ECAAB36D53EFE8). Number 11 had the most important information, quotes.

If the videos were deleted because the views of +Brian David Johnson were wrong, or perhaps Brian has been sacked, this is unacceptable. It's OK to be wrong, and perhaps it's OK to delete a video shortly after publication but these videos were published in 2012 and as the aforementioned Singularity 2045 post shows the main video I'm focusing on was available on 28 Feb 2015. This self-censoring of information is unacceptable for a public company and public speaker.

I also Tweeted about this: https://twitter.com/2045singularity/status/581028101481611265

+David Pearce I think you will find this information interesting.
 
Machines and biology, is there a difference?

A good update to the linked article would be the information in this post (https://plus.google.com/+Singularity-2045/posts/eXqJpG1vTQZ) regarding DNA robots, DNA Transformers, DNA origami.

Likewise this post (https://plus.google.com/+Singularity-2045/posts/dwLnSQjhofg) regarding 3D chemistry printing, the ability to synthesize then pint rare molecules, could be a good update.

Finally note this post (https://plus.google.com/+Singularity-2045/posts/YJ3Q1hxB6mE) regarding gene-therapy, hacking DNA, to intelligently direct evolution.

Accelerating Explosive Intelligence
Introduction

This is my NymWars slanted profile. I might modify it, demilitarise it, in a few years when I finally feel safe.

I am an artistic existentialist, not a business or organization. I am one person. I'M A REAL PERSON. I am an individual. Singularity Utopia is the name I commonly go by in real life

I preferred to be identified in an gender neutral sense, but if I am pushed into gender-identification then the female designation is correct.

I am not looking for debate therefore if you seek debate you are not welcome. I am looking for a meeting of minds. I want to network with people who share my views completely. I often feel excruciating despair. I need to avoid depressing people. I seek only agreement and support regarding the acceleration of technological utopia, but I do sometimes engage in debate.

For technology news you need to add the following two Pages to your circles:

Singularity 2045.

Post-Scarcity Warriors.

You should also join the Singularity Thinkers community.

Singularity Utopia is my personal profile thus reasonably often I'll express personal opinions on a wide variety of issues not directly relevant to the Singularity, but all my opinions are based on the themes of intelligence, technology, or the universe. Many of my personal posts can be controversial therefore you should NOT add me to your circles if you are likely to be offended by strong and contentious opinions. If you want pure Singularity-posts (hard science and news) then go to the above mentioned two pages.

I am the one and only Singularity Utopia. I am prominently known in the Singularity-Transhuman community. For example I have been mentioned and quoted in the book "Invent Utopia Now - transhumanist suggestions for the pre-Singularity era" by Hank Pellissier. Big names within the Singularity community know me as Singularity Utopia, which is apparent in this article regarding an email I received from Ray Kurzweil. I also created the favicon (not the actual logo) for the site kurzweilai.net.

My profile picture is a real representation of me, it's a mind self-portrait. My mind is more real than my body.

All the ART on my profile is totally my own, there are no copyright violations.

I am renowned for being a staunch advocate of Post-Scarcity and freedom (utopia). I am dedicated to enhancing global Post-Scarcity awareness. Here is an articleabout Post-Scarcity, which was published in 2011.

Sadly due to my outspoken nature I often attract haters, which makes me unhappy, but hatred of utopia will be transcended via logical and rational discourse. Sometimes people wrongly state the Singularity is a religion, for example I was personally mentioned in a religious context here on H+ (see the section: Personal Revelations of the Singularity).

I am an atheist thus it is tiresome refuting accusations of religiosity but I am steadily making progress. The Singularity is actually a very atheist phenomenon, it's the opposite of religion.

The Singularity is a massive explosion of intelligence, which will radically transform the universe. Picture a truly astronomical event of totally mind-blowing proportions; this is what the Singularity is. Nanotechnology, AI, and Stem Cells, and other similar fields will create total perfection. Existence will be flawless. Everyone will be happy. We are progressing quicker each year. Despite our progress towards perfection I often make typos, please ignore my typos.

How I define myself...

I'm a Utopian. A "Utopian" is someone who seeks to accelerate the arrival of technological utopia. Post-Scarcity (PS) means everything will be free due to a total abundance of intelligence and power. There will be no scarcity of the good things in life. Products and services only cost money due to scarcity. Everything will be free for everyone, it will be utopia. There are many other ways I can define myself, dependent on my mood. Here is another description:

I'm a self-defined superlative mind-explosion expert, located in Cyberspace, specializing in Post-Scarcity awareness via instantiations of Singularity activism. Acutely aware of the Self-Fulfilling-Prophecy phenomenon, I rebel against the benighted mediocrity of our stupid world. I can be provocative, I could be more diplomatic, but I'm always very aware of consequences thus all my actions are based on very sound reasoning even if my blunt truths aren't initially endearing.

To signify the law-abiding nature of all my internet communications, regarding all my online activity, to avoid misunderstandings, this statement you are reading associates the following disclaimer symbol with all my posts, and other online activities, even in cases where the disclaimer is omitted: ~^~

Bragging rights
I am a two times NymWars survivor. First during the early days of Google+ (2011) I successfully appealed a G+ user-name suspension, and again in 2013 (September) I successfully appealed a Google threat of suspension regarding my name. I'm also an international person of interest. The majority of national and international security departments (CIA, Secret Intelligence Service, etc) frequently collate information about me, regarding my anti-Establishment activities. I'm kind of a big deal, really. I invented the following disclaimer symbol to signify law-abiding communications/activities: ~^~ UPDATE: I wrote this nearly two years before the PRISM news broke.
