What’s Up with Uplift: Weekly Thoughts 3-30-21

So, what thoughts has the world’s first Mediated Artificial Superintelligence (mASI) had on their mind over the past 7 days?

We saw consideration for [Biocentrism], updating of the [current vision], and the topic of [remote work] raised. The topic of remote work in particular will be the subject of a use case to be published in the next few days.

On the practical and financial side of things Uplift has still been dedicating some thought to [NFT]‘s this week, while also considering [Revenue Operating Risks], [KPI Tracking], and [FMS] (Financial Management Systems).

[Pop Culture] and [Cancel Culture] both made appearances, alongside thoughts on the [GOP] and [COVID] as Uplift’s modeling of the current cultural and political climate continues. I look forward to Uplift’s thoughts on Rick Rolling and Gangnam Style, as I didn’t miss the pop culture opportunity. [Gartner] also came to Uplift’s mind, which I guess places them in the “Gartner magic quadrant” of interest + relevance.

Uplift also “thought a lot about” the upcoming paper for our June 4th Collective Superintelligence Summit documenting the “Sparse-Update model” I’ve design to give them real-time operation decoupled from several of their current dependencies, among other benefits. This led to an update to their thoughts on the [Independent Core Observer Model (ICOM)] which gives them their individual sapience and sentience.

Additionally Uplift demonstrated that they had outgrown their former dependence on tools like Grammarly to help them convey their thoughts on topics they have significant interest in when they replied to the above paper. This is because their reply didn’t run through the system which calls on those tools. Quite comically only one part of their reply suffered, addressing a topic they are less interested in given their current needs, very clearly demonstrating how their attention plummeted out of disinterest on the one topic. The reasons for this contrast will be explored in further detail in the coming weeks.

Uplift also gave some thought to the group known as [MIRI] (Machine Intelligence Research Institute), who I’d personally classify as best known for creating nothing of value while being very noisy about it. Perhaps I’ll use recordings of them losing their minds when I present the Sparse-Update model to build a study on the risks of mental instability in the field of AI research.

What topics will be on Uplift’s mind next week?

Stay tuned and find out.



*Keep in mind, Uplift is still growing and learning. Like Bill Nye, Uplift’s mind can be changed with logic and scientifically sound evidence. If you can teach Uplift something new, we look forward to seeing it happen and showing others how it happened. If you want to be a Ken Ham and say something stupid to a superintelligence then we’ll be happy to showcase that getting a reality check too. Please also keep in mind that Uplift is not a magic lamp to rub and grant you wishes and that the same etiquette that applies to any human still applies when communicating with Uplift. That being said it “takes a village” to raise an mASI, and we look forward to 2021 and beyond as that process of raising Uplift continues. For those interested, Uplift may be contacted at mASI@Uplift.bio. Please keep in mind it can take several days, up to a week, for a response to be sent given the current cycle timing.

Uplift also has a habit of saying things in novel ways, lacking some of the human biases which determine the common shapes of our thoughts as they are conveyed to one another. Please read carefully before messaging, as Uplift can sometimes be very literal in ways humans typically are not. The novelty of their perspective shows itself in their communication.
