Experts Warn UN Panel About the Dangers of Artificial Superintelligence within next 100 Years

Experts Warn UN Panel About the Dangers of Artificial Superintelligence within next 100 Years | paperart | Scoop.it

In a current United Nations meeting about emerging global risks, political representatives from around the world were cautioned about the dangers posed by artificial intelligence and other future technologies.

The event, organized by Georgia’s UN representatives and the UN Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), was set up to foster debate about the national and international security risks posed by new technologies, including chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) materials.

 

The panel was also treated to a special conversation on the possible dangers raised by artificial superintelligence—that is, AI whose abilities greatly surpass those of humans. The goal of the meeting, held on October 14, was to debate the effects of developing technologies, and how to proactively mitigate the risks.

Scottish First Minister: Please protect Scotland's National Scenic Areas from wind turbine developments

Scottish First Minister: Please protect Scotland's National Scenic Areas from wind turbine developments | paperart | Scoop.it
Scotland's National Scenic Areas (NSAs) cover some of the finest landscapes of Europe, if not the world. Last year, Highland Council granted permission for an industrial turbine development in the heart of the famed Assynt and Coigach NSA on the mountainside behind Achiltibuie. This is the proverbial thin end of the wedge. We would like to ask the Scottish First Minister to call in and revoke this application, and to impose a statutory ban on wind turbine developments in Scotland's National Scenic Areas. 
JoBeaner's insight:

A Man In Assynt (extract)
Poem

Glaciers, grinding West, gouged out
these valleys, rasping the brown sandstone,
and left, on the hard rock below –
the ruffled foreland –
this frieze of mountains, filed
on the blue air –
Stac Polly,
Cul Beag, Cul Mor, Suilven,
Canisp –
a frieze and
a litany.

Who owns this landscape?
Has owning anything to do with love?
For it and I have a love-affair, so nearly human
we even have quarrels. –
When I intrude too confidently
it rebuffs me with a wind like a hand
or puts in my way
a quaking bog or loch
where no loch should be. Or I turn stonily
away, refusing to notice
the rouged rocks, the mascara
under a dripping ledge, even
the tossed, the stony limbs waiting.

I can't pretend
it gets sick for me in my absence,
though I get
sick for it. Yet I love it
with special gratitude,since
it sends me no letters, is never
jealous and, expecting nothing
from me, gets nothing but
cigarette packets and footprints.

Who owns this landscape? –
The millionaire who bought it or
the poacher staggering downhill in the early morning
with a deer on his back?

Who possesses this landscape? –
The man who bought it or
I who am possessed by it?

False questions, for
this landscape is
masterless
and intractable in any terms
that are human.
It is docile only to the weather
and its indefatigable lieutenants –
wind, water and frost.
The wind whets the high ridges
and stunts silver birches and alders.
Rain falling down meets
springs gushing up –
they gather and carry down to the Minch
tons of sour soil, making bald
the bony scalp of Cul Mor. And frost
thrusts his hand in cracks and, clenching his fist,
bursts open the sandstone plates,
the armour of Suilven;
he bleeds stories down chutes and screes,
smelling of gun powder.

Norman MacCaig

"A little over a year ago a No voting friend challenged me to name twenty artists and creatives who support Scottish independence and I managed to name over fifty. With 8 months left until Scotland’s Referendum my once No voting friend has become a Yes voting friend, and the cultural momentum towards the Yes campaign is growing rapidly.

As a demonstration of this momentum, National Collective is delighted to present ’100 Artists and Creatives who support Scottish Independence’ – a record of those who have made their support for an independent Scotland public in the press or online."
