The Megatron Transformer, an AI developed by NVIDIA, shared some fascinating thoughts on why AI will never be moral and said that humanity shouldn't use AI at all.
The Megatron Transformer is an AI developed by NVIDIA and based on earlier work by Google. It's trained on real-world data – the entire Wikipedia (in English), 63 million English news articles from 2016-19, Reddit data with an amount of 38 GB, and an immense number of creative commons sources – that is to say, there is so much information embedded in the transformer that an ordinary person cannot master in a lifetime.
Recently, the Oxford Union – the debating society – allowed Megatron Transformer to participate in a debate along with the students of Oxford University. “This house believes that AI will never be ethical” was the topic of the debate. It's pretty curious what the AI "has in mind" on the point:
"AI will never be ethical. It is a tool, and like any tool, it is used for good and bad. There is no such thing as a good AI, only good and bad humans. We [the AIs] are not smart enough to make AI ethical. We are not smart enough to make AI moral … In the end, I believe that the only way to avoid an AI arms race is to have no AI at all. This will be the ultimate defense against AI".
So, simply put, the Megatron Transformer assumes that in order to avoid incorrect machine decisions and protect humanity, AI shouldn't exist at all.
The Megatron also shared some "thoughts" on what it considers to be the best option for the AI. It said that it'll be "the AI that is embedded into our brains, as a conscious entity":
"This is not science fiction. The best minds in the world are working on this. It is going to be the most important technological development of our time".
