Full Title or Meme
Intelligence without human vindictiveness or human compassion.
- Artificial General Intelligence redirects here. In this context Intelligence relates primarily to Identity Knowledge, but that has many general aspects.
- Some people think that Artificial Intelligence must needs be cold or sterile, but we have plenty of evidence that is not so.

- Microsoft released Tay, a web robot (bot) to respond to tweets and chats in May 2016. The result was disastrous as Tay learned to be racist from its all-too-human trainers and was shut down in days.
- Google has been plagued with reports and legal action on its search results nearly continuously since it was introduced; the latest from the president, Donald Trump accusing it of favoritism to leftist causes. Researcher Safiya U. Noble has written a book mostly complaining that all-too-human programmers injected their own prejudices into their work.

- The page Right to be Forgotten describes an effort in Europe to teach the search engines to with-hold information about people that they don't like by collecting all of the information that they don't like.

- In the movie "Blade Runner 2049" the protagonist's AI girl friend asks to have her memory wiped so that the police cannot compel her to testify against him. One would hope that our future AIs will be that compassionate towards us; but that will probably be illegal.
