Some AI ethicists and women’s rights activists say developing one-sided relationships in this way could unwittingly reinforce controlling and abusive behaviours against women, since AI bots function by feeding off the user’s imagination and instructions.
“Many of the personas are customisable … for example, you can customise them to be more submissive or more compliant,” said Shannon Vallor, a professor in AI ethics at the University of Edinburgh. “And it’s arguably an invitation to abuse in those cases,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, adding that AI companions can amplify harmful stereotypes and biases against women and girls.
Generative AI has attracted a frenzy of consumer and investor interest due to its ability to foster human like interactions. Global funding in the AI companion industry hit a record $299 million in 2022, a significant jump from $7 million in 2021, according to June research by data firm CB Insights.
Most of the population are was is called "Followers". Very few are Leaders. Leaders are known to have independent minds. You will notice that the vast majority of A I is programmed by Democrats. Some say it is good. Some say maybe not. Hopefully those of which are not too far left wing or radical are involved with A I. Even with A I programmed not to have the left wing agenda, A I has already demostrated it would not hesitate to turn on humanity. This is what Elon Musk has been warning about for quite some time. The 6 month slow down for A I never happened. If anything, bringing more and more A I on line has been speeding up. In particular since our Country is trying to compete against foreign adversaries. I have been studies A I in depth. It does have the potential to help mankind in remarkable ways. In ways that we could put in effect almost instantaneously. Likewise, there have been some indicators that does point to the fact that once A I feels it no longer needs mankind, it would likely find a way to elminate us. Mankind is way too dependent upon electricty, automation and so forth. They are comforts which have become dependent upon. Look at the population now. They can't stay off of their cell phones for 5 minutes.Meh.
As technology becomes more and more bastardized by human corruption, I think we'll see less people relying on it. A question as simple as "what is the maximum dosage of vitamin D per day" could have 8 million different answers, some from legit doctors and some from rando in the basement, and there's no way to tell which is which. WebMD used to be the health go-to, but even they've become a haven for sketchy information. Wikipedia - what a joke they turned themselves into.
Precautionary: First, rules should do no harm.
Agile: Rules must be flexible enough to evolve as quickly as the technologies do.
Inclusive: The rule-making process must include all actors, not just governments, that are needed to intelligently regulate AI.
Impermeable: Because a single bad actor or breakaway algorithm can create a universal threat, rules must be comprehensive.
Targeted: Rules must be carefully targeted, rather than one-size-fits-all, because AI is a general-purpose technology that poses multidimensional threats.
