Any fan of Star Trek NG or Orville knows the theory of molecular synthesizer driven economy making money obsolete. True AI combined with humanoid robots can accomplish the same goal and more. A farm and home robot with an Azimov’s 3 laws operating system like in I Robot NS4 hardware plus a creative life seeking application like in Short Circuit could be helpful in all aspects of work and be interesting inspiring greater ideas and projects for humans to work on as volunteers instead of as wage slaves. Another potential benefit is more practice of equality instead of hierarchy.
I propose OpenAI spin off a Work Freedom Institute to develop a humanoid robot and software capable of feeding and caring for every family that has one, instantly raising the standard of living around the world. My start in this direction is partly documented at [www.reliablerobots.com]
One key to real AI is programmig the highest level of intelligence, not addressed by most AI projects. For example an IBM Watson video says it cannot understand Bible parables. Doug Lenat’s Cyc program is said to operate at a 4th grade level - after buying the desktop encyclopedia they use it is obvious why - the text they are encoding is written at a 4th grade level. So the evidence points to the need to parse the Bible enabling generation of sermon level text in the way humans do and the ability to answer questions about each output.
A Q/A loop between two Bible level AI’s could do some very advanced thinking. Consider the goal of pursuing absolute perfection Everyone could be doing church as Jesus’ Gospel says instead of as Paul’s establishments. This would lead everyone to become spiritually empowered through stages of student, apostle, shepherd, overcomer, and Rev. 12:5 man child. A real heads up compared to traditional work.
Recently a TED talk showed a Japanese attempt to gain college entrance for an AI failed because the flat AI’s NN’s produce do not have enough meaning. Let’s produce all the systems needed to put 3 laws safe robots (NS4’s) in everyone’s hands to give each person the equivalent of all the best technology has to offer. That should minimize world hunger, poverty, illiteracy, crime, terrorism, and war.
If OpenAI won’t fund this who will? (A serious question - any leads?)
