Cigarette 29 (27a) Well, the problem with AI is still in my mind. What do we expect from an artificial intelligence? Oh wait, wrong question! Out at the loggia, smoking another of this deadly cigarettes, I thought about determination. For what reason shall we - as humans - develop an AI? AI as a slave, trapped into a small cage of human imaginations or another AI byond of our limits? We humans tend to imagine everything within our own limits. Why? A new born child has a simple inherent program only: survive, keep the race alive and die after a short period to offer room for younger and new individuals. That's the way we became the dominant race on planet Earth. Wich means: survive, kill all your enemies and have sex as often as possible until you die. Everything else is a product of trancendental projections. Philosophy, religion, social rules ... whatever. We try to design our life by several improvements. Some use fitness-studios to build a better body, some go to an university to build a better mind. Some combines both. Nice, but it's all gathered into the small cage we all live in. I like the idea of the basic determination: survive, learn and improve. Not as a program code but as an ability. No goal at all. Just let the dogs out. Would such an AI respect us humans as serious partners? I doubt it. At this point experiance and acceptance of failors becomes important - at least for the survival of humans. But this is just another trancendental part: forgiveness. It's a very special part of human existance. To be honest: what is it good for? Just to keep the number of clan members at a serious level to be able to win next fight against the other clan. Remember folks, our early ancestors were barbarians. Sooo ... What do we want? A slave AI or an open, not determinined AI without all this so called "values"? We want a slave AI. This will be a bastard, shrinked by our confused imaginations and historical and biological determinations. HARRRR!
