NLA representative Interview

A month ago, the nations of our world gathered in an exceptional meeting following the horrific events of Shangaï. We cannot, under any circumstances, let this happen ever again. This is why, with the help of legal experts working with researchers in machine learning, yesterday, we came to an agreement, and wrote the New Laws of Asimov International Treaty. This is a victory towards worldwide safety.

The nations that have agreed to follow this treaty are as follows: The United States of America, Japan, every member of the European Union, the United Kingdoms, China, Egypt, South Africa and North Korea. Russia refused to sign the treaty, followed by Turquie, Tunasia and South Korea. Mister Putin has said "undermining research on A.I. development is undermining our future". However, allowing A.I. research to go on unregulated undermines our safety, and that, we can no longer tolerate. Russia's refusal to cooperate will, with no doubt, have consequences, and those are being discussed as we speak.

[...]

Finaly, I would like to announce the founding of the NLA department, which, under article 13, will take charge of inspecting and judging cases involving A.I. But judging those cases are only reactions. The whole point of this treaty is prevention. This is why the NLA department will also be in charge of inspecting and regulating A.I. research, with the help and support of every government that signed this treaty, and any undeclared work will be sanctionable.[...]

Interesting agreement. I was surprised by the fact that A.I.s can't access the web. RIP Siri! :P

28 Jul, 2018 14:52

Actually, siri is not really an A.I., it's a ressearch engine with a few functionality here and there and a voice engine. An A.I. is capable of learning new things, at least that's mostly how I define it. It's capable of evolving by itself. And if you let something like that on the internet... Well, it copy paste itself everywhere to make sure it's not alone on the task, download all the data in the world, read it all in a few Days tops, and then surpace human knowledge and inteligence in a matter of seconds as one of the machine learning principles is basically that an A.I. evolution rate is exponantionaly accelerating as it learns how to evolve and where to go from there. Short story: let AI on the internet, and you create an almost all knowing god like machine. I could be completly wrong but that's my understanding.

here's a little quote for you : In computer science colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is applied when a machine mimics "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem solving".   I'll write an article about what A.I. could do in 2041 and how they evolved until when we are now in the world S.A.V.E. :3

28 Jul, 2018 14:56

I know, just kidding around :) I'm intrigued about that Shangai thing that happened and everybody freaked out about. Is there an article about it?

28 Jul, 2018 15:05

there will be... èwé

28 Jul, 2018 20:07

I'll send you a discord DM message when I come up with an actual definition of A.I. in my world :3

31 Jul, 2018 01:01

Shanghai incident article written! (again, a missing audio-log... But I'm going on an all nighter to do as many prompts as I can so we'll make do until then! èwé )

28 Jul, 2018 15:13

I like this style of writing! I want to know what happened in Shanghai now. Skynet level? Very good stuff!

28 Jul, 2018 20:09

Thank you, glad you liked it! I'll be writting the shangaï article soon, probably as shortest war prompt (woops, spoiler alert). Skynet... That name rings a bell but I can't tell what it is.

As I mentioned in discord, I love the combination of common sense and the tiniest bit of paranoia you can see these rules were made with. :)

28 Jul, 2018 20:08

Thanks Yuki! And thank you for helping me with editing this ;)

I've finally gotten around to reading the finished version of this \o/   I've got a question: If something like Siri does not qualify as an A.I. and they are not allowed to pass a Turing Test (which is kind of used as a "definition" of A.I. in the philosophical sense today)... what is an A.I. in your world?

28 Jul, 2018 20:06

I think this is a very interesting and important question... Which I will answer to in my A.I. article, that or I'll just make a new article in the NLA stipulating what is an A.I. If that's what I end up doing though, I'll repost it in summer-camp-chat and send you a link as a discord DM

28 Jul, 2018 20:10

I've followed this world, so there's a chance I'll notice anyway ;-)

28 Jul, 2018 20:23

Thanks!
