Can discussions about the technological singularity go here?
If it pertains to politics?
Like why have a bunch of humans running the government when you can use an artificial intelligence. The main reason is that it will function with less bias and make more rational decisions. No, it’s not going to simply be up to “how it’s programmed” and that argument is so stupid because it’s going to be “programmed” in the exact same way people are. Both humans and the intelligence would be given an inherent set of instructions i.e. eat, life, reproduce, learn or learn, adapt, reprogram, respectively, then develop themselves based on the vectors of their environment and in turn, their decisions which shape themselves. Why I put an emphasis on “less” bias, is because even a super higher intelligence will still function with bias, but you can bet your bottom dollar that their decisions are going to be less affected by it than the standard human, especially if they can acknowledge their own biases. Time and time again, it can be proven that a machine (in this sense, a program) can out preform a human at any ask, and I believe running a government is no exception. Granted, it won’t be perfect, but it will be a lot better than what any number of humans could pull off, especially since human error is also a thing. Additionally, said artificial intelligence would always have the internet at it’s disposal. Imagine the cross referencing it could do on a senate floor. Right on the spot, it can give statistics from any number of sources for global warming, crime rates, and so on.
