TWTS – Episode 30. – The Basic Stages of Artificial Intelligence We Should Aim For
DOWNLOAD (right click to save linked file): TWTS The Basic Stages of Artificial Intelligence
I look forward to seeing an AI that is at least as intelligent as a 10 year old human! This is the level at which true intelligence shows up at the most basic understanding of conscious awareness, so it’s the most useful for us to create. These levels can be clearly defined using increasing awareness of different individual perspectives/goals in different combinations of observation and action (input/cause and output/effect) to the point of objective, third person, action that includes the goals of others, in the same way that a 10 year old human does: effectively, given some healthy philosophical/moral guidance and parameters.
The questions each of the higher functioning 4 levels/algorithms we need, beyond the core programming of the AI’s own goals and awareness of itself, are (note: these numbers are binary!):
10. What do you (person #2) want to do, and how does it affect me (person #1)?
11. What can we (person #2 and person #1) do together?
100. How are they (person #3) helping you (person #2)? (As perceived by person #2.)
101. How can I (person #1) help you (person #2) the same way they (person #3) did?
This is a long one! But if you are interested in goals we want to use for building AI that functions successfully, then this is a very thought provoking episode, with a good background on human intellectual development.
Please let me know your questions! I really would love to help you understand these levels and why they are important! Comment here, email me, or talk to me on Reddit! (My email is TheWiseTurtle on gmail. My reddit page is listed in the links below.)
