I'd normally post this for actual friends on Facebook, but given that the majority of people pictured are Googlers, I guess I should post it here too. Thanks for hosting me for a talk & dinner in Seattle! BTW sky blue is the new black.

Transcript from my @FuturesAPPG talk has a bunch of points I've been meaning to blog but haven't had time:
* AI safety has been studied for decades
* shaming academics who show what you can do with AI is wrong
* the singularity is history, but AI is producing existential threats

Argh! Why has +Google replaced the desktop version of gmail with the old html version? I just want to see what email I have, not open it all!

Outcomes of anonymous surveys at an #AIEthics Debate May 2018
Observations:
1) @UniofBath is largely technophilic,
2) More people think AI is incompatible with democracy than bad for society.
Blogpost for slightly more details:

"As a result of the acquisition, Flickr accounts will be governed by SmugMug’s Terms of Service for Flickr and Privacy Policy for Flickr. The Terms of Service and Privacy Policy of Flickr’s current owner, Oath (formerly Yahoo), will not apply to the use of Flickr after the acquisition. "

Wait, Yahoo! is Oath? Flickr doesn't know you spell Yahoo! with a !? Or is this another company? Also, does anyone know anything about SmugMug, besides that they aren't afraid of PoC (which is a nice start)?

Joanna Bryson commented on a post on Blogger.
+Jung irum – I can't get blogger to let me reply to your question as a thread, maybe you should try from google+ if you have an account there. Anyway, those are great questions. I think some researchers are trying to distinguish themselves so they use the different language in the posts above. Probably a few of them have written manifestos you can find about how right they are to develop a new term. With respect to why build AI, it's to make humans smarter, not to replace them. Well, a particular company or function may need fewer people, but every person will be more productive so there will still be plenty for people to do. You might like this web page, where I start with that question: http://www.cs.bath.ac.uk/~jjb/web/ai.html

I've observed people using the concept of AGI to do good work, but they could do better work if they got just a little further ways over that concept.

I'm doing another reddit AMA in a couple hours. It hasn't been nearly as popular so far as the January 2017 one, but that means I'm more likely to answer any questions people do come up with. You have two more hours to enter questions! This year's emphasis is on the whole question of regulation – transparency, accountability, that kind of thing. https://www.reddit.com/r/science/comments/8fytu0/im_joanna_bryson_a_professor_in_artificial_and/ #transparency #accountability #reddit #ai #ethics #regulation
