Preventing Skynet is Online May 23, 2009Posted by Matt Brown in Transhumanism.
Preventing Skynet is the new blog created by Michael Anissimov, founder of the Immortality Institute and owner of Accelerating Future. The purpose of the site is to showcase some of the dangers that synthetic intelligence could pose if we are not careful (for those of you living in a cave, Skynet is a reference to the fictional SI in the Terminator movies.)
So far there are only three essays up but content will grow as people submit writings. More importantly though, one of the articles up there is mine! Yes, that was a bit of shameless self-promotion. Anyways, the essays up are quite good and the themes they touch on are ones we need to be thinking about and discussing. Give it a look.
