back to article Get ready for Team America: AI Police

The US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) has updated its National AI R&D Strategic Plan for the first time since 2019, without making enormous changes. "The Biden-Harris Administration is announcing new efforts that will advance the research, development, and deployment of responsible artificial intelligence that …

    Don't Talk the Walk if You Can't Walk the Talk

    To understand potential risks, the OSTP issued a request [PDF] for information inviting the public to comment on how AI might impact national security, democracy, and job loss.

    "The strategy will pay particular attention to recent and projected advances in AI, to make sure that the United States is responsive to the latest opportunities and challenges posed by AI, as well as the global changes that will arrive in the coming years."

    To see first hand just how responsive Uncle Sam is likely to be to anything radically different and postmodern novel and fundamentally challenging well beyond any possibility of his absolute command and control, check out his reply to the following freely supplying surprising information on that of concern as is detailed above ......

    Not the best role model

    Team America: World Police [imdb] is the best marionette feature film out there (and definitely nsfw). Let's hope for a bit more competence and less mayhem from this Strategic Plan.

    Why bother tackling the actual problem?

    > It also changes one of the plan's strategies: 2019's "Make long-term investments in AI research" becomes "Make long-term investments in fundamental and responsible AI research" in the 2023 document.

    Ignoring the reality that it is controlling for the responsible *deployment* of these systems that is important.

    Research has to look at every aspect - it has to (aim to) *find* every aspect - of a field. So we can know what is a Good Thing to implement and what would be a Bad Thing to deploy and market and hype past the point of irresponsibility and into the rank marshes of maliciousness.

    Yesterday’s Register article “Healthcare org with over 100 clinics uses OpenAI's GPT-4 to write medical records”, said the doctors’ notes would be written by software (ie. AI), but “validated” by the doctor, who would now have a 30% increase in patient load.

    So we have a working model for separating computer programs from responsibility.

    What do you think? Do we have consensus yet?
