Four Background Claims

MIRI’s mission is to ensure that the creation of smarter-than-human artificial intelligence has a positive impact. Why is this mission important, and why do we think that there’s work we can do today to help ensure any such thing?

In this post and my next one, I’ll try to answer those questions. This post will lay out what I see as the four most important premises underlying our mission. Related posts include Eliezer Yudkowsky’s “Five Theses” and Luke Muehlhauser’s “Why MIRI?”; this is my attempt to make explicit the claims that are in the background whenever I assert that our mission is of critical importance.

Claim #1: Humans have a very general ability to solve problems and achieve goals across diverse domains.

Claim #2: AI systems could become much more intelligent than humans.

Claim #3: If we create highly intelligent AI systems, their decisions will shape the future.

Claim #4: Highly intelligent AI systems won’t be beneficial by default.

Dabiskā inteliģence atbilstoši katram ārējās pasaules stāvoklim un procesam rada tās modeli un izvēlas atbisltošu izturēšanos. Dabiskā inteliģence nebioloģiskā vidē vēl nav izveidota. I.V.
