The Wizards of Smart

Artificial Compassion Is More Dangerous Than Artificial Intelligence.

Bill Gates is worried about artificial intelligence, too. Elon Musk of Tesla is worried about artificial intelligence. And so is Stephen Hawking. Now, these are three pretty smart guys. They’re reputedly geniuses and they are all worried about artificial intelligence. I call these guys the wizards of smart.

“Microsoft’s co-founder joins a list of science and industry notables, including famed physicist Stephen Hawking and Internet innovator Elon Musk, in calling out the potential threat from machines that can think for themselves. Gates shared his thoughts on AI on Wednesday in a Reddit ‘AskMeAnything’ thread, a Q&A session conducted live on the Reddit site.” Obama’s been there, Tim Berners-Lee, who is the World Wide Web founder, not Algore.

Gates said, “I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence. First, the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that, though, the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern.”

They’re worried the machines are gonna become smarter than we are, but they’re not gonna have any humanity about ’em, therefore no compassion and no temperance, no understanding, and we’re gonna lose to the machines. All these guys are dead serious about this.

Instead of computers and instead of machines, I would be really happy if these geniuses would start thinking about artificial compassion instead of artificial intelligence, artificial government instead of artificial intelligence. And by artificial compassion, I mean liberalism. I mean out of control, big government liberalism – when compassion is forced upon us.

… when we are, under the penalty of law, forced to buy health insurance policies that we cannot afford, that covers ailments we may never suffer, such as maternity for men, and doesn’t provide the doctors that we want or need. When we can’t use our doctor, we can’t use the same medical procedures we’ve always used, when regulations, artificial compassion hurt the entire economy, where are these guys there? Where are they on this?
