Artificial Intelligence: A Decision


The author has decided not to apply for a patent on an artificial intelligence, although he has, for all practical purposes, created one. Why?

Motivation.

The basic problem of an artificial intelligence is its motivation. For what purpose will it exist? Why? What will compel it to interact with the surrounding world, or even just to have an impact on it, and how? What, indeed?

The Solution to the Problem. Part 1.

Let's suppose that we have a certain template, created in accordance with the author's methodology, including both the context and the subtext of a certain text or texts. Let's call it Clone. Now let's suppose that we give Clone a certain Command which is also, beyond any doubt, a text or susceptible of being reduced to a text. This means that we can create a template of the Command. Then we can, following the author's patented methodology, compare it to the template we already have of Clone -- with the subsequent extraction from Clone of a certain set of, say, triads.

The Solution to the Problem. Part 2.

Let's call the whole mass of existing things – video cameras, trees, prostheses, sleds, automobiles, tables, airplanes, etc. – manipulators. It will be possible to find a description of each one of these in the form of a text, for which it will be possible, of course, to create a template. Thus Clone will be able to find the descriptions of certain manipulators necessary for carrying out the Command.

The Solution to the Problem. Part 3.

By means of a standard set of well-established and widely used methods of transforming electrical signals in mechanical operations, Clone is able to make active use of manipulators in order to fulfill the Command.

Learning.

The author understands learning to be the consolidation of certain results of the interaction between the subject and the surrounding world. So, if certain actions on Clone's part lead to the successful carrying out of the Command, the combinations of words (triads, for instance) that were used to this end accumulate in Clone's template by way of the increased frequency of their repetition. Then Clone becomes capable of learning. Also, by way of fairly simple interactions, he becomes capable of initiating and expanding the description of an ever greater number of manipulators.

If…

If Clone's template doesn't contain (for example) a set of triads indispensable to carrying out the Command, Clone is able to seek out the indispensable template that includes this information by turning to a certain database -- by searching on the Internet, for instance. Or by turning to the one(s) who gave the Command for further clarification.

This means…

This means that, to carry out the Command, Clone has access to all human knowledge.

Because…

So, a form of motivation not arising from a human person is possible – the motive of self- preservation, for example. And then a completely new civilization will arise: the Computer Civilization. And it's entirely possible that it would be a civilization without Homo Sapiens, whose existence would have been terminated as undesirable.

[22.176]

"This is an evil in all that is done under the sun, that one fate comes to all; also the hearts of men are full of evil, and madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead." Amen...
