AI gone bad

Posted 11 September 2007 - 07:18 AM

I think this will be more an exercise of imagination than anything...

If a machine could be built that ever could exhibit intelligence (with the ability to learn, reason, predict and imagine), then it could be feasibly applied to: intelligent cars, local and global weather prediction, stock market analysis, etc.

Feasibly, because of the benefits of silicon over organic brains, they may well be able to think at a million times faster than us, and have a memory capacity to at least equal our own.

Ignoring unrealistic sci-fi clichés of AI that involve human-like behaviour, what do you see as an ideal application for a machine that can use highly specialised applied thinking? And what could be the best and worst things that could happen as a result?

Best case scenario - it would relieve humans of the responsibility and neccessity of thinking so we could just spend our lives chillin'
Worst case scenario - Your coffee machine would tell you how you are having your coffee and you can lump it!

I wonder what the matches would be like while it perfects it's algorithms; like making assumptions about the "real" sexuality of the clients based on the data in their profile...

depends on the original programmer of course, but it could put you in a match with your sister or mother or a close cousin at first. when the introduction of family tree into the system and the unacceptability of it. of course it would also have to learn that at a certain level of the family tree would be acceptable (say 6th cousin or something thereabouts). would be interesting at first, of course.

The question was intended to be about how an artificial brain might work, so any programming would only determine basic functioning of the brain (not how it thinks or anything that presupposes what conclusions it might get) and its primary motivation - in this case, motivation to romantically match two people.

There is no such thing. It may develop into a great matchmaker, but there is no such thing as a perfect one. There is too much to be accounted for to match everyone perfectly every time, but it would have a high success rate and probably be seen as perfect, but it still wouldn't be. It definitely wouldn't be born perfect, by no means.
