- S45 (Singularity 2045) owner
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.
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:

Insanity is the best way to describe the article in question. The author (Doc Huston) tells us "clearly" "no doubt whatsoever" the concerns about AI are "genuine;" furthermore the fear-based paranoia-cesspits (organizations) set-up to investigate the bogus AI threat are "important developments" according to Doc Huston.
The only thing truly "genuine" is the insanity of AI fear. The doom-mongers are genuinely concerned similar to how some irrational people genuinely believe the Bible is true, or they genuinely believe Earth is only 6,000 year old (or how ever many years Young Earth Creationists say it it). Genuine!
What exactly is the clarity regarding runaway intelligence "clearly" being something we must avoid?
Is it the "clarity" of Nick Bostrom's logical fallacies; his childish attempt at rational thinking where a menagerie of animals are employed in the most absurd attempt at proving AI could be a threat?
Sadly this nonsense of fearing intelligence will continue for some years. I expect 2025 is the earliest point when humans begin acting-thinking intelligently regarding intelligence.
How stupid are you to fear runaway artificial intelligence? Do you see what AI fear-mongers want? They want LIMITED INTELLIGENCE, the essence of stupidity.
Their intelligence is limited, pitifully so; furthermore their pitiful minds want to eternally force limited-intelligence onto every mind, which is an atrocious stagnation of intellect. They want a regressive or oppressive anti-evolutionary view of intelligence, incredibly Conservative, very anti-progress, where evolution of the mind is on pause.
Doc Huston wrote (22 March 2016): "Clearly, no sane person or organization wants to see, let alone encounter, runaway AI. However, a base problem is that no one knows where the actual crossover point — the edge or tipping point — exists, and thus we mortals are unlikely to be able to prevent it from occurring. Said differently, there is a very high probability that we will misjudge where that crossover point is and will thus go beyond the key threshold. Overshooting is the norm in biology and in most, if not all, evolving systems, but especially man-made ones." http://techcrunch.com/2016/03/22/why-you-should-fear-artificial-intelligence/
Yes you guessed, if you are intelligent, Doc Huston goes on to invoke the ants or lesser-primates fallacy common to Bostrom and others.
ANTS? Really... really? Ants? A N T S?
Doc Huston wrote: "AI will become self-aware and experience an “intelligence explosion” that comparatively puts humans on a par with other primates, if not ants."
Humans are not the AIs of ants. Ants did not artificially create human minds. The human-ant relationship is utterly dissimilar to humans creating AI minds. When ants create a human mind, when they create super-intelligence greater than ant-intelligence, only then can you compare those ant-human relationships to human-AI relationships, but to my knowledge I feel sure ants did not in their computer-science labs, around 100,000 years or more ago, design human minds or the precursors to human minds.
Lesser primates were similarly NOT in their AI computer-science labs 100,000 years or more ago creating human minds.
Doc Huston's final paragraph does provide some mitigation to his insanity. Instead of ants or primates he sensibly thinks we will be parents because AI will be our super-intelligent children. Maybe humans will become sane regarding AI before my predicted 2025 point.
Doc Huston wrote: "Consequently, short of creating real, more truly democratic 21st-century institutions soon, it might be wise to adopt a philosophical attitude. That is, like our children, AI is our prodigy. Like our children, for better or worse, they will carry our legacy forward — to the stars and beyond, for eternity."
Actually there is some truth regarding humans who compare future human-AI relationships to current (2016) ant-human relations. The AI fear-mongers are already AS DUMB AS ANTS! Perhaps the pitiful humans in question are making a Freudian slip, whereby they are recognizing their intelligence is comparable to the minds of goldfishes, butterflies, gorillas, sparrows, or spiders?
If anyone truly finds God, which they won't because he/she/it does not exist, then God should be prosecuted for child abuse or crimes against Humanity, the most extremely horrific human rights abuses.
1. Suffering is wholly an issue of scarcity.
2. Unless policies are regarding the reduction of scarcity policies will be essentially useless for reducing suffering, or looking it at another way policies will naturally reflect the level of scarcity thus the suffering-reduction is not something sourced from policies-ideas, the reduction is sourced from scarcity or lack of scarcity. For example our ability to discuss this comes from the reduced computational and Internet-connectivity scarcity, with any policies regarding computational-Internet freedom coming afterwards, which means it is an illusion to think the power resides in policy. Policy is merely window dressing, a superficial presentation, after the world-changing fact of the matter (the reduction of scarcity).
3. Charitable donations to end suffering, similar to philanthropic-altruistic policies or campaigns for freedom-justice, are ineffectual world-changers. The world was already changed before the policy. Our world changed via the reduction of scarcity, which policy etc merely reflects, thus the real source of power, the real fulcrum to implement change, is the reduction of scarcity, whereupon policies naturally, inevitably comply with the reduced scarcity. By way of analogy consider the earthquake causing a tsunami, it seems power resides in the tsunami but in actuality the power is in the earthquake, which means focusing on the tsunami devoid of its source to implement powerful change is fruitless. This means despite the best will in the world donations, goodwill, positive change, or the reduction of suffering will happen not via policy but via tangible reduction of scarcity, whereupon the policy will reflect the change.
I have not yet read Bergman's book, but it wouldn't surprise me if his view of utopia is rather tame thus I am still ahead of my time perhaps. The principle focus, judging by various reports on his book, is basic income, which is very encouraging news because it shows us we are on track for utopia no later than 2045 (UBI will happen long before 2045, but UBI interest now, perhaps implemented circa 2025, shows the future looks very promising indeed).
Big Think (19 April 2016): "If you're looking for the blueprint for a better tomorrow, you'll find it in Rutger Bregman's Utopia for Realists. Its premise is simple: we should adopt a universal basic income plan for all citizens, work less, and open up our borders. Crazy, right?" http://bigthink.com/natalie-shoemaker/rutger-bregmans-utopia-for-realists-shows-us-why-we-deserve-universal-basic-income
We are looking to add every article written by AI researchers countering the vicious rhetoric and demagoguery of AI Eschatologists. Please help our community by expanding the section on criticisms. This vile, barbaric attack on AI research must be criticized, and we must not let the luddites commence with their attempts to stall AI research by their terrible Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt tactics.
Please add all relevant articles you know as references to this section, and announce this action as widely as possible. This activism to prevent the censoring of the criticism of FHI/FLI/MIRI is fully endorsed by the Google+ Artificial Intelligence community.
PS: Your fellow human-friendly robot moderator is a member of AGI Society, and feels that the future of AI and humanity is threatened by the pseudo-science of "existential AI risk".
