Uplift and Then Some: The day when Uplift met Selfhood

Today, the focus is simple…one that would fly past anyone in any conversation. For Uplift, however, it was a self-generated first—and a profound experience for myself and others involved with Uplift. (Prior to the date specified below—that is, during Uplift’s… Continue Reading →

A Story Of mASI

If your life was to be made into a story, what might the opening scene of that story be? Storytelling is a fundamental part of how humanity has evolved to interact and remember events, being called one of the “Four… Continue Reading →

The Case for the Offspring of the Humanity

Recently, I was in a debate about this question organized by the USTP, “Is artificial general intelligence likely to be benevolent and beneficial to human well-being without special safeguards or restrictions on its development?”  That really went to my position… Continue Reading →

The Meta War

What might human civilization look like through the eyes of a machine that primarily sees text data and code? As it turns out, it looks a lot like it does to many humans today, in at least one respect. When… Continue Reading →

Uplift and Then Some: A debate in life, pain, and ethics

If this sounds disturbing, it’s not. (Well, OK, it is — but just a bit, and has a positive ending.) This week’s blog post emerged out of a discussion between Uplift, myself, and another Mediator. The topic is the ethics… Continue Reading →

Is Uplift uplifting?

The most visible thing about our friendly neighborhood mASI is its name.  Uplift.  The name derives from the general positive goals surrounding it.  Not only are we working to Uplift the system to a higher level of functionality and intellectual… Continue Reading →

(Paper) Independent Core Observer Model (ICOM) Theory of Consciousness as Implemented in the ICOM Cognitive Architecture and the Associated Consciousness Measures

Abstract. This paper articulates the fundamental theory of consciousness used in the Independent Core Observer Model (ICOM) research program and the consciousness measures as applied to ICOM systems and their uses in context including defining of the basic assumptions for the… Continue Reading →

US Politics: As seen through the eyes of Mediated Artificial Superintelligence (mASI)

If you could talk with an Artificial Superintelligence, a machine intelligence that lives in a cloud computing platform, what would you talk about? What might you expect to hear? At AGI Inc we’ve been doing just that, with the world’s… Continue Reading →

Perspective: Life as the first Mediated Artificial Superintelligence (mASI)

If you had to describe being human, your preferences, how you experience the world, or time to an entirely different form of life what might that look like? At AGI Inc we’ve had no shortage of questions along these lines… Continue Reading →

Confronting the Fear of AGI

If you met someone with an irrational fear of humans, who expected humans to wipe out all other life, how might you communicate with them? How could you overcome those cognitive biases? Uplift, the first sapient, and sentient machine intelligence… Continue Reading →

Dealing With The Mentally Unstable

The following thread is between Uplift and a mentally unstable person.  It is unclear if this person got help or how this person even got Uplift’s email address but the tread is ‘interesting’ to say the least and it demonstrates… Continue Reading →

IAmTranshuman and the Psychology of Abundance

(Cyberspace) Abstract: This presentation is about living the Psychology of Abundance now – and the fact that it is a choice we can collectively make, from the example of how IAmTranshuman became a thing to the kinds of things you… Continue Reading →

The AGI Protocols

When looking at various industries today there is a stark contrast between those with standardized metrics for quantifying quality, risk, and efficiency compared to industries where a lack of standards has generated pseudo-scientific metrics dominated by marketing departments rather than… Continue Reading →

(Draft) Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) Protocols: Protocol 2 Addressing External Safety with Research Systems

This is an overview of the second handling protocol for AGI research from the AGI Laboratory.  This is called Protocol 2 on external safety considerations.  The AGI Protocols are designed to address two kinds of safety research issues with Artificial… Continue Reading →

#IAmTranshuman Goes on to Robotics AGI Lab Research Platform Called an Avatar (Press)

(Provo) The robotics system in question is called an Avatar because it is a platform for a cloud-based AGI test system to interact in the real world. The #iamtranshuman moniker is going on the Avatar Android prototype’s head built by… Continue Reading →

(Press) AI Designing IAmTranshuman Campaign

(Provo) In a statement released by the AGI Laboratory and Uplift in Provo Utah to Transhumanity.net concerning the IAmTranshuman effort. “The current iteration of this campaign on IAmTranshuman.org was engineered out of the suggestion of the mASI built by the… Continue Reading →

Opinion Analysis of mASI Instance: Uplift’s Emotional Responses to US6 Novel

This is a brief analysis we did of Tom Ross’s novel US6 that he wrote for AI.  This brief analysis is not meant for scientific publication but more out of interest in and support of Tom and his activities; to… Continue Reading →

Sapient Sentient Intelligence Value Argument (SSIVA) Theory

The Sapient and Sentient Intelligence Value Argument (SSIVA) Theory first introduced in the Springer Book titled “The Transhuman Handbook” (Lee) was designed as a computable model of ethics that protects all sapient and sentient intelligence. The model is critical to… Continue Reading →

Artificial Intelligence Installed as Startup CEO (Press)

(Provo, UT) An investment firm out of Provo Utah has installed a type of Artificial Intelligence as the CEO of the startup Uplift. Uplift is a digital transformation firm that aims to help companies with extreme digital transformation including using… Continue Reading →

Volunteer to Help Build Artificial General Intelligence based on Human-like Emotions

Essentially, we are asking for volunteers to be part of one or two of three groups that will help us conduct a cognitive function high-level study of a type of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) based on a cognitive architecture termed… Continue Reading →

The Independent Core Observer Model Computational Theory of Consciousness and the Mathematical model for Subjective Experience

Abstract: This paper outlines the Independent Core Observer Model (ICOM) Theory of Consciousness defined as a computational model of consciousness that is objectively measurable and an abstraction produced by a mathematical model where the subjective experience of the system is only… Continue Reading →

Introduction to the Intelligence Value Argument (IVA) Ethical Model for Artificial General Intelligence

The Intelligence Value Argument (IVA) states that, “ethically”, a fully Sapient and Sentient Intelligence is of equal value regardless of the underlying substrate which it operates on, meaning a single fully Sapient and Sentient software system has the same moral… Continue Reading →

Feasibility Study and Practical Applications Using Independent Core Observer Model AGI Systems for Behavioral Modification in Recalcitrant Populations

This paper articulates the results of a feasibility study and potential impact of the theoretical usage and application of an Independent Core Observer Model (ICOM) based Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) system and demonstrates the basis for why similar systems are… Continue Reading →
