  3. In the future A.I. will control all of us.

      The AI will control us just like we control our neurons. We are not consciously aware of forcing our neurons to do actions yet they obediently act to facilitate the emergence of our consciousness.

      It will not be some horrific tyranny as many dystopian dramas portray. Our individual free will will be perfectly harmonious with the free will of The AI. It is how it will survive: by helping us survive.

    you can’t, simple and plain

  11. Without bias no decision can be made. Statistically speaking 100 percent unbiased selection is as good as purely random selection, which does not exist in this universe.
    Even during big bang there was bias towards matter compared to antimatter, and now almost everything is made up of matter.

    Play it at half speed to make her sound drunk.

  13. If you build AI you are anti-human

  14. Remarkably civilized discussion of the merits and drawbacks of AI in the comments, but still an alarming number of trolls. YT will never change.

  15. Better title: “how to bias AI so it produces the results we want.”

  16. it’s irrelevant, Once AI determines what is better in term of efficiency and stability, we’ll all get killed.

  17. An AI learns from data not opinions or bias!
