Artificial Intelligence—and its components, machine learning and algorithms—have a big advantage over us: it has its purpose hardwired in already. We have to develop ours deliberately and slowly.
AI might never exterminate us, but it’s already begun slowly enslaving us. A tempting taskmaster, as AI gives us what we want, it also redesigns what we want. Meanwhile, we work building the fortunes of those algorithms’ owners. (see https://farm.fyi/freedom/vs-serfdom/)
At least we should hedge our bets, with algorithms by humans and for humans. FARM is an organic algorithm, rooted in 10,000 years of taming nature—and ourselves, and the wisdom that generated.
