How Artificial Intelligence Will Really Kill Us All

Basically to sum it up we will end up using it to kill each other. The software has never been the problem the humans making the software are.

I like Paul's analysis here. AI isn't gonna go all Forbin Project on us any time without being close first.

The biggest AI threats that I see are: [1] an unrestricted AI attached to a nanotech printer that produces grey goo, or [2] an unrestricted AI attached to a secret manufacturing plant that's able to produce a civilization's worth of military weapons without anyone knowing about it (which suggests a lot about the AI system having 'purpose'), or [3] an unrestricted AI that, Forbin-like, humans decide to attach to a large repertoire of nuclear missiles without any failsafe device, or [4] an AI that grows "so quickly" that is somehow develops plans to boostrap some 3rd-party online code generator into a virus .exe and thence into real-world objects and thence into goo or military weapons.

Yet the first 3 kinda assume that people on Ben Carson's mental plane are the ones designing these systems. Once we got close to nanotechnology, I think there'd be billions of dollars poured through identifying, preventing, containing, and combating grey goo. There's already been a movie about #3. My issue with #4 is that it requires an AI complex enough to plan, and hence can deal with consequences, yet no-one stuck a "... and don't kill all humans" line into the planning module.

As for #2... do you trust the NSA?

Sometimes, I wonder if we already are, without realizing it.
