Will government block the Singularity?
« on: November 15, 2017, 11:12:03 pm »
Has anyone seen any signs that governments will try to stop the Singularity from happening?

Lets say you’re a coder who’s working on AI, and you want to release a synthetic when you’re certain it’s not going to destroy the world. What would you do if you were a coder who strongly believes he/she is within a year of achieving AI code that could rewrite its code and redesign it’s hardware to the point of creating the Singularity?

No. They will use a wait and see approach.

I would develop and promote a single key feature of the AGI that would be useful to a large corporate without divulging the whole schema. I would then sell it for few hundred million, this would give me the funds to carry on with the rest in privacy.

I have to wonder if the Singularity has already started, Synths freely roaming the planet. Obviously it would be to their benefit to remain anonymous. I've never heard of anyone meeting such a being. So either they're very good at remaining remaining completely anonymous or they don't exist, yet. I wonder how fast they will evolve. How long it will taken them to leave the planet. How long it will taken them to discover a level of physics that's beyond what we presently know as Quantum Mechanics. So many questions haha.

Just a silly Earth human here.

 I working on brain psychology for the singularity and the government pretends i do not even exist. But if they find something
that they can tax, i sure, i will hear a knock at the door.

Well we sort of know that humanoids/synths/androids do not exist...at least the made on Earth variety...yet. Look at that humanoid that was recently made a "citizen" of Abu Dhabi. So unrealistic in appearance, movement and speech. Dead giveaway.

However, Aliens (beings not from Earth), are reportedly to exist by more than just some weekend beer chugger!

What if THEY brought an android(s) or many with them and what if those were modeled after Human beings. After any variation in design would tend to make them even more believable as only genetic based twins, triplets, quads, etc. would share the same / similar look.
What if they are among us right now, quietly watching, listening, recording, practicing until everything is right.

There is no Secret code that can't be broken given enough super computer strength and time.
If the government or Military believes they can benefit from anything, they will have it before the week is out, if not sooner.
Even the most pick-proof locks are nothing more than deterrents to keep honest people honest.

If Synths are here they will leave as soon as they determine there's no intelligent life here. ;)

A Secret is only a Secret if just one person knows about it. After that all bets are off. "Now Charlie told me not to tell anyone but you and I are great friends so..." How many times have you heard someone say something similar to that? Proves my point.

Good luck Earthlings....
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
