How to be Human
There is a new approach to stalling the takeover of human civilization by Artificial Intelligence. That’s right, we’re going to teach it right from wrong – using crosscultural metamanual moralgorithms.
Taken from phys.org:
“Researchers Mark Riedl and Brent Harrison from the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology believe the answer lies in "Quixote"—to be unveiled at the AAAI-16 Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. (Feb. 12 - 17, 2016). Quixote teaches "value alignment" to robots by training them to read stories, learn acceptable sequences of events and understand successful ways to behave in human societies.”
And this is where sh** starts to get real, folks.
“"The collected stories of different cultures teach children how to behave in socially acceptable ways with examples of proper and improper behavior in fables, novels and other literature," says Riedl, associate professor and director of the Entertainment Intelligence Lab.”
