Avoid the singularity! March 1, 2008

Posted by Michael Kowalski in Uncategorized.

I am reading a specification doc which asks that the systems “over time, learn how to yadda yadda”. 

Like all responsible developers, I believe we have an obligation to NOT write code which might achieve self-awareness, and bring on the Singularity. I know there are some out there who think the Singularity will be a good thing, and the AIs will be our buddies and maybe even let us upload into their distributed cortexes or something. But really, who’s to say? One things for sure: human developers are likely to be out of a job. There goes the revenue stream.
