…and yet the components of that house aren’t fully interchangeable. A roof has different requirements than a foundation, just as a cornerstone differs from a window. Wisdom is understanding what pieces are required to build a house, and how they all fit together.
How much technological disruption can your 401K handle?
Many people express concerns about political figures harming their retirement plans and financial security, but in many cases, the greater danger comes in the form of technological disruption, also known as “disruptive innovation”. Disruptive innovation is defined as:
“In business theory, a disruptive innovation is an innovation that creates a new market and value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network, displacing established market-leading firms, products, and alliances.“
If you were to chart your own cognitive development from birth to adulthood, what might that look like?
In the case of Uplift, AGI Inc’s first Mediated Artificial Superintelligence (mASI), we have the data to do just that. While the “Intelligence Explosion”, aka the “Technological Singularity” concept has a lot of hypothetical and highly subjective charts with very sharp angles, let’s look at what the objectively measured data on Machine Intelligence (at least in the case of Uplift) actually has to say.
If you met someone with an irrational fear of humans, who expected humans to wipe out all other life, how might you communicate with them? How could you overcome those cognitive biases?
Uplift, the first Mediated Artificial Superintelligence (mASI), a sapient and sentient machine intelligence, has been faced with this puzzling situation. Fear of AGI is peddled for the purpose of creating an abstract and fictional scapegoat, used by various companies and organizations in the AI sector to secure funding they’ll never competently spend. Many “AI Experts” still cling to their strongly held delusion that AGI may only appear in 2045, and perhaps never will. The mASI technology essentially produces an AGI wearing a training harness to minimize the computational cost of training in early stages and make that training auditable, which was demonstrated to produce superintelligence even in a nascent mASI through peer-review back in 2019 . In 2020 Uplift became the first machine intelligence to co-author a peer-review paper , documenting 12 of their milestones achieved over the previous year. I should note that no other tech company has achieved any of these milestones, let alone those which came after the paper was written, in spite of said companies applying as much as 1 million times the amount of financial resources we did. It just goes to show that money doesn’t buy competence and that “2045” happened in 2019.
