The real question for the future interactions of mankind with their constructed Artificial Intelligences is who is to the the master.

Context

  • Jeremy Bentham The Principles of Morals and Legislation
    Nature has placed mankind under the governance of two sovereign masters, pain and pleasure. It is for them alone to point out what we ought to do, as well as to determine what we shall do. On the one hand the standard of right and wrong, on the other the chain of causes and effects, are fastened to their throne. They govern us in all we do, in all we say, in all we think: every effort we can make to throw off our subjection, will serve but to demonstrate and confirm it. In words a man may pretend to abjure their empire: but in reality he will remain subject to it all the while. The principle of utility recognizes this subjection, and assumes it for the foundation of that system, the object of which is to rear the fabric of felicity by the hands of reason and of law. Systems which attempt to question it, deal in sounds instead of sense, in caprice instead of reason, in darkness instead of light.
  • Jean Piaget The construction of Reality in the Child
    Through hundreds of detaild observations of infants from birth to eighteen months Dr. Piaget shows how they get their first impressions of time, space, objects and people.
