When the tech boys start asking for new regulations, you know something’s up
Watching the opening day of the US Senate hearings on AI brought to mind Marx’s quip about history repeating itself, “the first time as tragedy, the second as farce”. Except this time it’s the other way round…
“Congress has a choice now. We had the same choice when we faced social media. We failed to seize that moment. The result is: predators on the internet; toxic content; exploiting children, creating dangers for them… Congress failed to meet the moment on social media. Now we have the obligation to do it on AI before the threats and the risks become real.”… And we are about to find out if Marx’s view of history was the one to go for.
My readers, must read. I am glad I have gone back to studying logic to prepare for AI systems. While Marx is an admirable logical critical thinker, he had a fallacy here with history. And hey maybe thus the great failures of communism. History does not repeat itself, if it happens, the effect is a farce. The tragedy is in denaturalizing the levity, potency and reality of the cause. It is as I showed with evolution and natural domains, a consequential infraction. Tragedies happen for instance when you undermine something like the initiating x and knows great consequential ignorance from not engaging the knowledge. That is the tragedy. Crazy, isn’t it my readers? The farce is inevitable but the tragedy may be preventable. Reflection space, such a beautiful space.
