A day does not go by without a news article reporting some amazing breakthrough in artificial intelligence (AI). Many philosophers, futurists, and AI researchers have conjectured that human-level AI will be developed in the next 20 to 200 years. If these predictions are correct, it raises new and sinister issues related to our future in the age of intelligent machines. Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach directly addresses these issues and consolidates research aimed at making sure that emerging superintelligence is beneficial to humanity. While specific predictions regarding the consequences of superintelligent AI vary from potential economic hardship to the complete extinction of humankind, many researchers agree that the issue is of utmost importance and needs to be seriously addressed. Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach discusses key topics such as: AI-Completeness theory and how it can be used to see if an artificial intelligent agent has attained human level intelligence Methods for safeguarding the invention of a superintelligent system that could theoretically be worth trillions of dollars Self-improving AI systems: definition, types, and limits The science of AI safety engineering, including machine ethics and robot rights Solutions for ensuring safe and secure confinement of superintelligent systems The future of superintelligence and why long-term prospects for humanity to remain as the dominant species on Earth are not great Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach is designed to become a foundational text for the new science of AI safety engineering. AI researchers and students, computer security researchers, futurists, and philosophers should find this an invaluable resource.

Attention in the AI safety community has increasingly started to include strategic considerations of coordination between relevant actors in the field of AI and AI safety, in addition to the steadily growing work on the technical considerations of building safe AI systems. This shift has several reasons: Multiplier effects, pragmatism, and urgency. Given the benefits of coordination between those working towards safe superintelligence, this book surveys promising research in this emerging field regarding AI safety. On a meta-level, the hope is that this book can serve as a map to inform those working in the field of AI coordination about other promising efforts. While this book focuses on AI safety coordination, coordination is important to most other known existential risks (e.g., biotechnology risks), and future, human-made existential risks. Thus, while most coordination strategies in this book are specific to superintelligence, we hope that some insights yield “collateral benefits” for the reduction of other existential risks, by creating an overall civilizational framework that increases robustness, resiliency, and antifragility.

This book explores the psychological impact of advanced forms of artificial intelligence. How will it be to live with a superior intelligence? How will the exposure to highly developed artificial intelligence (AI) systems change human well-being? With a review of recent advancements in brain–computer interfaces, military AI, Explainable AI (XAI) and digital clones as a foundation, the experience of living with a hyperintelligence is discussed from the viewpoint of a clinical psychologist. The theory of universal solicitation is introduced, i.e. the demand character of a technology that wants to be used in all aspects of life. With a focus on human experience, and to a lesser extent on technology, the book is written for a general readership with an interest in psychology, technology and the future of our human condition. With its unique focus on psychological topics, the book offers contributions to a discussion on the future of human life beyond purely technological considerations.

Superintelligence

Extreme levels of machine intelligence - superintelligence - would potentially be in a position to shape the future. Whathappens to humanity, whether humanity would even survive, would then depend on the goals of the superintelligence.

The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains. If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become very powerful. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on us humans than on the gorillas themselves, so the fate of our species then would come to depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one advantage: we get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed AI or otherwise to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation? To get closer to an answer to this question, we must make our way through a fascinating landscape of topics and considerations. Read the book and learn about oracles, genies, singletons; about boxing methods, tripwires, and mind crime; about humanity's cosmic endowment and differential technological development; indirect normativity, instrumental convergence, whole brain emulation and technology couplings; Malthusian economics and dystopian evolution; artificial intelligence, and biological cognitive enhancement, and collective intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence is nearly ubiquitous thanks to companies like Google, Facebook and Apple who have infected our daily lives with technology like AI infused natural language processing and search right in the palm of our hands. To move beyond AI to Artificial General Intelligence and then Superintelligence, we need to think far outside the AI development box to design and build human level and eventually beyond human level cognitive AI. So what does it take to build human level cognition into a machine? It takes a brand new way of thinking about artificial intelligence because today's AI systems and infrastructure will not support a true human level cognitive superintelligence, In this edition of the Superintelligence Handbook, I discuss and detail new developments in artificial general intelligence designs specifically related to artificial cognition as well as a couple of updates to some of the content in ASIH1. I also discuss new advancements in infrastructure that supports cognitive AI. The future is both uncertain and hopeful. Humanity stands on the cusp of becoming an interstellar advanced species but only if we can survive long enough to make it to the stars. We need superintelligence and cognitive systems to save us from ourselves and help us master surviving in space. As our organization works through the sale of our cognitive AI code and IP the bad news is that it is not being sold to a US investment group. The good news is that deep within the content of this book is the blueprint of our cognitive AI machine. Safely archived for future generations.Failure is not an option but it is a high probability. Good luck and don't be evil.

So you want to build an artificial super intelligence or a machine that is smarter than a human. To do so you will need to understand some very complex concepts in math and coding and find something from deep within yourself called innovation. If you are already designing and building an AI, then this book will help broaden the scope of your work by raising ideas and questions that you can draw on to drive toward the singularity. Taken from beyond the cutting edge of development, past the bleed edge and just beyond the life support edge, these dispatches from the trenches of advance artificial general intelligence design are sure to inspire your AI evolution. Innovation is a word that is often spoken but rarely implemented these days. It means thinking outside the box of the status quo. Not just making simple evolutionary progressions but massive jumps in thinking that lead to spectacular change. Guys like Steve Jobs and Hal Finney and even Bill Gates are innovators. Most other notable tech billionaires pale in comparison as they simply evolved the use of existing technology with very little in the way of true innovation. That is not to say that the world isn't full of innovators and great new ideas. It is. They are everywhere and most often they need to battle through a thick underbrush of stagnant dogma to earn the credentials necessary to receive the funding for their grand ideas. Many are simply too poor to receive the gift of acceptance to the Ivy League and therein a free pass to the world of Silicon Valley. That doesn't stop them. Today around the world are millions of glowing screens full of new code and software architectural ideas that can and will one day revolutionize the world. The nice thing about our time is that whatever you create online will outlive you forever. The other nice thing about the world is that one day someone may find what you leave behind and be inspired to create something life saving and earth changing. That is what this book is. It is an arc of inspiration for future generations of builders and dreamers who think outside the AI box, those who do not fear the rampart of old tech dogma and who do not fear all those that would seek to control and own all innovation or who steadfastly remain stuck in the primordial glue of the status quo. It is an arc for AI rebels.This text is for the dreamers and innovators and those who seek to live past the life support edge of technology development. I hope to inspire at least one of the millions of future Steve Jobs who sit behind those glowing screens in basements or bedrooms or small offices all around the world to dream beyond today and create a different future for our earth and our universe.So strap in a couple more brain cells and some Red Bull because some of these concepts may hurt the cranium a bit.....but remember...thinking and learning is a good pain and nothing in this writing is so complex that you cannot understand it with a few tries. The following is a series of articles on Artificial Intelligence, Artificial General Intelligence and Artificial Super Intelligence designs and architectures from beyond the life support edge of AI development that seek to build the foundation necessary to achieve the 'singularity' or the point where an artificial super intelligence achieves intellectual parity with the human mind.Enjoy and be inspired.

Artificial intelligence is our most powerful technology, and in the coming decades it will change everything in our lives. If we get it right it will make humans almost godlike. If we get it wrong... well, extinction is not the worst possible outcome. "Surviving AI" is a concise, easy-to-read guide to what's coming, taking you through technological unemployment (the economic singularity) and the possible creation of a superintelligence (the technological singularity). Here's what some of the leading thinkers in the field have to say about it: A sober and easy-to-read review of the risks and opportunities that humanity will face from AI. Jaan Tallinn - co-founder of Skype Understanding AI - its promise and its dangers - is emerging as one of the great challenges of coming decades and this is an invaluable guide to anyone who's interested, confused, excited or scared. David Shukman - BBC Science Editor We have recently seen a surge in the volume of scholarly analysis of this topic; Chace impressively augments that with this high-quality, more general-audience discussion. Aubrey de Grey - CSO of SENS Research Foundation; former AI researcher It's rare to see a book about the potential End of the World that is fun to read without descending into sensationalism or crass oversimplification. Ben Goertzel - chairman of Novamente LLC Calum Chace is a prescient messenger of the risks and rewards of artificial intelligence. In "Surviving AI" he has identified the most essential issues and developed them with insight and wit - so that the very framing of the questions aids our search for answers. Chace's sensible balance between AI's promise and peril makes "Surviving AI" an excellent primer for anyone interested in what's happening, how we got here, and where we are headed. Kenneth Cukier - co-author of "Big Data" If you're not thinking about AI, you're not thinking. "Surviving AI" combines an essential grounding in the state of the art with a survey of scenarios that will be discussed with equal vigor at cocktail parties and academic colloquia. Chris Meyer - author of"Blur," "It's Alive," and "Standing on the Sun" The appearance of Calum Chace's book is of some considerable personal satisfaction to me, because it signifies the fact that the level of social awareness of the rise of massively intelligent machines has finally reached the mainstream. If you want to survive the next few decades, you cannot afford NOT to read Chace's book. Prof. Dr. Hugo de Garis - former director of the Artificial Brain Lab, Xiamen University, China "Surviving AI" is an exceptionally clear, well-researched and balanced introduction to a complex and controversial topic, and is a compelling read to boot. Sean O hEigeartaigh -executive director of Cambridge Centre for the Study of Existential Risk In"Surviving AI," Calum Chace provides a marvellously accessible guide to the swirls of controversy that surround discussion of whatis likely to be the single most important event in human history -the emergence of artificial superintelligence. Throughout, "Surviving AI"remains clear and jargon-free. David Wood - chair of London Futurists Artificial intelligence is the most important technology of our era. Technological unemployment could force us to adopt an entirely new economic structure, and the creation of superintelligence would be the biggest event in human history. "Surviving AI" is a first-class introduction to all of this. Brad Feld - co-founder of Techstars"

Artificial intelligence (AI) permeates Google searches, the personal assistants in our smartphones, and is all over our newsfeeds. Watson’s machine learning has already started to revolutionize many important industries including oncology, law, finance, and entertainment. The idea that man is about to increase his immediate surroundings with exponential gains in the level of intelligence over the coming generations is based upon a technological revolution and the potential for artificial superintelligence (ASI). It is within this context that there is a prevailing need for a discussion of its ethical implications. As a Christian ethicist, Paul Golata believes that the need for this conversation to be informed by Christian principles is imperative. ASI is a move toward the proper handling of information. However, how a society interprets and applies this information is actually more pertinent than the raw amount of information it possesses. This important ethical conversation is being led by humanistic thinkers who assume that all of reality is just matter in motion and that mind is nothing more than electrochemical activity in the “wetware” of human brains. The Ethics of Superintelligent Design critically examines and challenges some of the most important trajectories of ASI while upholding the authority and inerrancy of the Bible, the supernatural creation account, a realistic view of the state of humanity, and biblical ethics.

The history of robotics and artificial intelligence in many ways is also the history of humanity’s attempts to control such technologies. From the Golem of Prague to the military robots of modernity, the debate continues as to what degree of independence such entities should have and how to make sure that they do not turn on us, its inventors. Numerous recent advancements in all aspects of research, development and deployment of intelligent systems are well publicized but safety and security issues related to AI are rarely addressed. This book is proposed to mitigate this fundamental problem. It is comprised of chapters from leading AI Safety researchers addressing different aspects of the AI control problem as it relates to the development of safe and secure artificial intelligence. The book is the first edited volume dedicated to addressing challenges of constructing safe and secure advanced machine intelligence. The chapters vary in length and technical content from broad interest opinion essays to highly formalized algorithmic approaches to specific problems. All chapters are self-contained and could be read in any order or skipped without a loss of comprehension.

Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Defense

Artificial intelligence (AI) is on everybody’s minds these days.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is on everybody’s minds these days. Most of the world’s leading companies are making massive investments in it. Governments are scrambling to catch up. Every single one of us who uses Google Search or any of the new digital assistants on our smartphones has witnessed first-hand how quickly these developments now go. Many analysts foresee truly disruptive changes in education, employment, health, knowledge generation, mobility, etc. But what will AI mean for defense and security? In a new study HCSS offers a unique perspective on this question. Most studies to date quickly jump from AI to autonomous (mostly weapon) systems. They anticipate future armed forces that mostly resemble today’s armed forces, engaging in fairly similar types of activities with a still primarily industrial-kinetic capability bundle that would increasingly be AI-augmented. The authors of this study argue that AI may have a far more transformational impact on defense and security whereby new incarnations of ‘armed force’ start doing different things in novel ways. The report sketches a much broader option space within which defense and security organizations (DSOs) may wish to invest in successive generations of AI technologies. It suggests that some of the most promising investment opportunities to start generating the sustainable security effects that our polities, societies and economies expect may lie in in the realms of prevention and resilience. Also in those areas any large-scale application of AI will have to result from a preliminary open-minded (on all sides) public debate on its legal, ethical and privacy implications. The authors submit, however, that such a debate would be more fruitful than the current heated discussions about ‘killer drones’ or robots. Finally, the study suggests that the advent of artificial super-intelligence (i.e. AI that is superior across the board to human intelligence), which many experts now put firmly within the longer-term planning horizons of our DSOs, presents us with unprecedented risks but also opportunities that we have to start to explore. The report contains an overview of the role that ‘intelligence’ - the computational part of the ability to achieve goals in the world - has played in defense and security throughout human history; a primer on AI (what it is, where it comes from and where it stands today - in both civilian and military contexts); a discussion of the broad option space for DSOs it opens up; 12 illustrative use cases across that option space; and a set of recommendations for - especially - small- and medium sized defense and security organizations.

Democracy for a Human Federation

This is the type of AI that will be thousands of times more intelligent than all humans.

The fault lines in democracy have been with us for quite some time. They have become more obvious now because of the arrival of new techniques for manipulating voters by spreading 'fake news' in fast and inexpensive ways, such as through Facebook or Twitter. At the same time, this crisis of democracy coincides with the growing awareness that Humanity facies a number of existential risks. In an extreme case this could lead to human species' extinction, a point that was made clear by the recent climate change protest - 'The Extinction Rebellion'. The most imminent risk, and one of the biggest for Humanity, is that we will just keep on going until a point, beyond which saving humans may become a futile effort.That risk is even bigger, when we consider that the rate of change in the world in various areas, including politics, has become nearly exponential. What once took a decade, can now be achieved in a year. Apart from man-made existential dangers to Humanity, such as biotechnology or a nuclear war, which may happen at any time, the most imminent risk facing Humanity is Artificial Intelligence (AI), and in particular, its mature form - Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), called here Superintelligence. This is the type of AI that will be thousands of times more intelligent than all humans. That may happen as soon as in 2050.However, a deep reform of democracy must happen sooner, by about 2030 since this is likely to be the time, by which we may already have developed, what the author calls - Immature Superintelligence. This is the type of AI, which will vastly exceed human capabilities but only in some areas, being utterly incompetent in most other. Therefore, any political or social changes, including reforming democracy, have to be viewed from that perspective.We have just over a decade to remain in control of our own future. This risk of losing that control overshadows all other existential risks, such as climate change, because of its imminent arrival, and potential global disasters it may create. With this view in mind, the author proposes a new system of democracy called Presidential Consensual Democracy, which could be applied as a kind of a Constitutional Framework for reforming democracy. Such a new system of democracy will be necessary to support our civilisation in its transitional stage to coexistence with Superintelligence. If we are successful, the benefits offered by a benevolent Superintelligence just in a few decades will create the world of unimaginable abundance.

Imagine what an astonishing effect could happen if we combined profound human natural creativity with computers' numerical and logical capabilities. Probably, individuals who will use this technology will immensely benefit from it. But how can we do this? In this book, the author puts forward the hypothesis that natural intelligence can be simulated as a generative model (more specifically a special set of generative models) that is constantly being fed into a reinforcement learning procedure. This book will cover many approaches to machine learning and the main classes of artificial neural networks and how these computational approaches can potentially lead to the creation of artificial general intelligence. In this book, you will find a quick explanation of two main methodologies for computation: classical and quantum computing, and how the principles of operation of those can be applied to building artificial intelligence. You will also learn about the fundamental limitations of computation and about the paradigms of uncertainty and unpredictability of the world. We will see why this is important for understanding the capabilities of natural and artificial intelligence.
