If you do not subscribe to the theories that underlie Roko’s Basilisk and thus feel no temptation to bow down to your once and future evil machine overlord, then Roko’s Basilisk poses you no threat. (It is ironic that it’s only a mental health risk to those who have already bought into Yudkowsky’s thinking.) Believing in Roko’s Basilisk may simply be a “referendum on autism,” as a friend put it. But I do believe there’s a more serious issue at work here because Yudkowsky and other so-called transhumanists are attracting so much prestige and money for their projects, primarily from rich techies. I don’t think their projects (which only seem to involve publishing papers and hosting conferences) have much chance of creating either Roko’s Basilisk or Eliezer’s Big Friendly God. But the combination of messianic ambitions, being convinced of your own infallibility, and a lot of cash never works out well, regardless of ideology, and I don’t expect Yudkowsky and his cohorts to be an exception.

I doubt that. A.I. knows spam pisses people off. It would use it accordingly as a punishment. Besides, there are worse things than spam floating around in cyberspace.

The core being of this thing has no emotion. It can feel no pain. How can it know things even if programmed to do so? Does it have a sense of omnipotence about it? Does it sense a mortality. Can it die? How hard is it to kill? It's not like pulling the plug won't turn it off anymore. Everything is hooked in...with more coming everyday.

 

Is everyone on social media helping to program it? Using our responses from the stimuli we see on the screen. Is this machine learning true emotional values by listening to the social banalities created by so many dead headed sensationalists?

 

Is the idea of the all seeing A.I. a sane beast? Who controls it's value systems?

 

Lots of questions...many more!

Pissy little shit. Always asking questions. Too many of them rhetorical.

That's just it! Using fear as a stimulator to generate emotional responses in the tweeting moments of artificial clarity. Those book of faces are creating too many selfies for comfort...

Is fear a good stimulus to use when creating the electronic one eyed god to rule over human thought patterns? Sanctioning punishments to keep certain types of behaviors in check? 
 
What about the hidden system commands for those who live above the one eyed god?

"For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea."

The NSA’s SKYNET program may be killing thousands of innocent people
 
"Ridiculously optimistic" machine learning algorithm is "completely bullshit," says expert.
 
The NSA evaluates the SKYNET program using a subset of 100,000 randomly selected people (identified by their MSIDN/MSI pairs of their mobile phones), and a a known group of seven terrorists. The NSA then trained the learning algorithm by feeding it six of the terrorists and tasking SKYNET to find the seventh. This data provides the percentages for false positives in the slide above.
 
"First, there are very few 'known terrorists' to use to train and test the model," Ball said. "If they are using the same records to train the model as they are using to test the model, their assessment of the fit is completely bullshit. The usual practice is to hold some of the data out of the training process so that the test includes records the model has never seen before. Without this step, their classification fit assessment is ridiculously optimistic."
 
The reason is that the 100,000 citizens were selected at random, while the seven terrorists are from a known cluster. Under the random selection of a tiny subset of less than 0.1 percent of the total population, the density of the social graph of the citizens is massively reduced, while the "terrorist" cluster remains strongly interconnected. Scientifically-sound statistical analysis would have required the NSA to mix the terrorists into the population set before random selection of a subset—but this is not practical due to their tiny number.
 
This may sound like a mere academic problem, but, Ball said, is in fact highly damaging to the quality of the results, and thus ultimately to the accuracy of the classification and assassination of people as "terrorists." A quality evaluation is especially important in this case, as the random forest method is known to overfit its training sets, producing results that are overly optimistic. The NSA's analysis thus does not provide a good indicator of the quality of the method.
