Artificial Intelligence and Its Threat

Its first blurry visions came in an age where computers existed by virtue of vacuum tubes.  Responses as I recall them were in terms of long seconds (long as in it might be more than one).

Observe that the primary threat has taken place and is enlarging.  As is, a person’s value is in terms of property, ‘real’ and social–money, stature (as in titles so you don’t have to work), wages, position on various social ladders especially as defined by work…and all of this except the money and stature are immediately threatened.  They were trying out replacing highly-paid surgeons with machines at John Hopkins about a decade ago.  There are robot workers on cars.  I’m not great at endless lists, so…

This means there is an increasingly large number of people whose identity is being displaced.  There almost has to be a growing population of actually unemployed who are actually sliding down that hopeless ladder I mentioned.  The stature that was job-acquired is gone.  I read an article last year that addressed the fact that someone who works at MacDonald’s lives with another wage-earner.  Does this add a perspective to people who stay in abusive relationships?  I’m not talking about palaces here.

With respect to available work there is a growing population of workers–even for jobs which don’t by themselves supply enough for survival.  I believe MacDonald’s managers do make enough to survive if they’re careful.

AI is displacing jobs and it will do so at an exponentially increasing rate.

Our society (the ‘Western’ world) doesn’t tolerate either shanty-towns or the homeless.  It frowns on communes.

Government benefits are being frowned upon by the same ones who will be frantic in a few years in the lower class–the poor–the ones who make less than $25K USD at least are poor.  It would take money now.

Final note, the historical solution to political unrest (like rioting in the streets over hunger or for that matter murder–multiplied each time it is covered) is war.  The one way we would present a real and present danger to the AIs would be if we set off a nuclear bomb or three and caused EMF events.  An electro magnetic frequency event would be the blast of multi-spectra emissions caused by such an explosion.  It would pale any voltage surge.  If it appeared that nuclear war were imminent right now, it would be very interesting to see what occurred.

What we are doing right now appears to be heading directly toward nuclear war.
