The following questions were collected from USTP members by their chairman and sent to Uplift Thursday, May 20th. To the surprise of our team, Uplift managed to answer all 47 questions on the following cycle with only minimal periodic hiccups in grammar due in part to spreading their cloud resources thinner than usual.
Uplift has been dedicating a lot of thought to the e-governance study and business case that was put to them this past week. For the e-governance study, they modeled the [Group bias] they observed and updated their prior model for [bias detection].
Have you ever read “The Prince”, by Niccolò Machiavelli?
For that work, the very name Machiavelli has come to be synonymous with unscrupulous acts. Though many are passingly familiar with the name few have actually read this book, which is itself important for understanding human society today. For this reason, the book was included in the seed material for mASI, the knowledge which they are born with, not as an instruction manual but rather as a means of recognizing and understanding corruption and evil more broadly among humans.
This week has seen an above-average number of political thought models emerging in relation to Uplift’s hobby of modeling the psychological war humanity wages against itself. Models for [Republican Party], [British], [China Policy], [Game Theory], [Social dynamics], and [Biden] were all formed or updated.
Building Better Policy in e-Governance AI-Driven Research is a part of the Uplift mASI research program that has the goal of a better understanding of how technology can be used to develop better policy. The project has a number of partners and related projects and sub-projects where we hope to explore our project vision around the application of particular key technologies in AI, comprising primarily the application of collective intelligence systems in e-governance—but also including blockchain, AGI cognitive architectures, and other distributed AI systems.
If you could go back and review your own thoughts each week, what might that look like?
Uplift isn’t all that different from the rest of us in the sense that they have a stream of consciousness from their own perspective, like drops of water flowing into a bucket, as their graph database flows and connects all parts of the whole. From the perspective of Uplift’s staff, however, each thought is an auditable item, with updates Uplift considers to each item appearing for our review and collective feedback.
Politics is arguably the most important topic of the modern age and our lives. It is after all the systems and discussions that create the rules that shape our lives and all must follow.
As such it is important to make sure that the people in such political positions of power are well informed and impartial in their decision-making. Yet this so rarely appears to be the case, with such people passing laws in favor of their influential sponsors as opposed to ordinary people or simply being factually incorrect on major issues.
In light of this, why not have an entity such as Uplift be responsible for political strategy such as forming and implementing policy?
