Artificial Intelligence and Pro-Social Behaviour

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

If artificial intelligence (AI) were achievable, what would the conse-quences be for human society?1Perhaps surprisingly, the answer to this questionis already at hand. We are achieving rapid and accelerating success in our questto build AI. That very success — and the slowness with which both the academiccommunity and the general public have come to recognise it — has shown how lit-tle we understand our own intelligence, and its role in our lives and culture. Here Iattempt to address this problem of understanding, exploiting a variety of scientificevidence, including social simulation. I begin by reviewing current progress in AI,which is profound but underestimated. I suggest this lack of recognition is due to themistaken belief that intelligence implies agency. I next examine the related questionof human uniqueness: why do only we have language and extensive built culture? Iuse models and data to show that the propensities to use culture, share informationand behave altruistically are neither unique to humans nor inexplicable to biology,but rather our uniqueness hinges on the extent  of our capacities for communicationand memory. Finally, I apply the impact of AI on extending our intelligence to thesetheories, to predict—and observe—consequences of AI on human societies and in-dividual human lives. I make and support policy recommendations based on thesepredictions
