Google's New AI Has Learned to Become "Highly Aggressive" in Stressful Situations
I'm immediately struck by the sensational science reporting - you could tell this story in a lot of ways but they choose to go with the doomsday terminator apocalypse language again because that's the only pop-culture narrative for AI.
The real problem with the Terminator narrative is hat the AI angle is ultimately incidental to it. Crazy generals have been staging military coups and oppressing the fuck out of people since the dawn of recorded history.
Exactly this. There are very few (if any) arguments against any technological innovation that don't boil down, upon closer inspection, to an argument against talking primates. However, talking primates are renowned for their complete lack of accountability, so we are required by law to find some other root cause to blame. It's the old - guns don't kill people - conundrum.
