    Hi everyone,

    I posted these videos almost 3 years ago. I want to get your feedback.

    When I made them, I didn't think to get feedback, but now that's changed. Watch each video in sequence and fast forward where I repeat stuff.

    Please tell me what you think. @Ren I especially want to know what you think. Thanks.

    Thank you so much! Take your time though, I'm not the best writer.

    Sure something to play with or use in a dumbed state but to open Pandora's box much less to integrate with it is not a great idea, not sure why this is a flame for which some moths are attracted to but many are too aware of the risks.

    Make sense to me. But I've heard you talk about this stuff before, so its easy for me to follow. I'm not sure it would be very palatable for people that are not familiar with these concepts.

    Have you considered reading it yourself. Or paying someone to read it... Personally, I prefer reading than listening.

    I'm not really sure that AI is a "pandora's box". The fear mongering is really common, but a lot of it is very poorly thought out.

    I don't subscribe to fear even that the vast majority of humanity does that said I does make me wonder how some can't see the risks but then again the genie was let out of the bottle when it came to a lot of other things like GMO foods ect. I guess humanity must learn the hard way as always, perhaps when they've integrated they loose things like emotions and free will then wonder as to why a big part of themselves is missing.

    "Being smart is not the same as wanting something". Pinker got it right, I think.

    As far as I can tell (and based on what you say in your videos) there is no sufficient reason to assume that:

    a) AI will develop a semantics
    b) AI will develop reasons for action and actually act on the basis of those reasons.

    Searle is good at articulating a), while people like Chomsky (and apparently Pinker) are good at articulating b).

    Now, in the absence of both a) and b), or even in the absence of either one, the grounds are insufficient to consider AI as scary or spelling the possible end of the human race. There is no sufficient reason that AI would 1) articulate the desire to erase humanity; 2) be able to act upon that desire; 3) have the resources to do so. The need to correct for error is also related to 3).

    In terms of your videos as presentations on a particular topic:

    I think you have all the right content (which is a great start) to make your point, but there are a number of elements that can distract from it. The most obvious one is the use of the simulated voice. It would be much better if you were making those points yourself and we saw your expressions etc.

    The second is that I think you spend too much time expanding upon examples and not enough time organising your claims (especially in the last video), so the listener may get a little lost, especially if they don't have prior familiarity with the issues at hand. I think that one concise example per point is good enough; you don't need to have multiple examples every time. Just make sure that e.g. every two minutes the reader is reminded of the point that you are making.

    For me as someone who cannot speak and understand English so well, these videos are incomprehensible.
    I would rather be able to read the spoken text in parallel.
    Or have it as real text, which I could then have translated.
    For this reason I did not watch the videos, but switched them off after 5 seconds.
