    A 7th reason to pump the brakes on AI:

    "MIT Creates An AI Psychopath Because Someone Had To Eventually...

    Like so many of these projects do, the MIT researchers started out by training Norman on freely available data found on the Web. Instead of looking at the usual family-friendly Google Images fare, however, they pointed Norman toward darker imagery. Specifically, the MIT crew stuck Norman in a creepy subreddit to do his initial training...

    The MIT team hit the nail on the head when it said: 'Norman suffered from extended exposure to the darkest corners of Reddit.' Fortunately, there’s still hope for this disturbed AI...

    Either way, it reinforces one very important fact about AI: that the worldview of an AI is very much determined by the information it gathers while learning..."

    The same thing is true of people. I wish there was more concern for that. :eek:

    Just like humans do. The difference is human decision making is conditioned upon sensory input and other intrinsic factors such as reasoning, emotions, etc. and like capability than can differentiate and filter raw data streams.

    Bottom line - until science can fully understand the workings of the human brain and its interactions with the rest of the body, AI is more fiction than science. And if that day arrives, the likelihood of applying that knowledge externally is far in the future.

    AI has limited current potential to enhance human's lives. It likewise misapplied has potential to negatively impact human lives.
