Remaining 2019 BSR Shows

Hi Everyone!

I have a conflict with a Holiday Event this week, so the show for Thursday 12/19 will be cancelled.

The show for 12/26 is currently "very likely".

No matter if/what you celebrate, I hope you have a safe and joyous Holiday season!

Peace,
Illya

Due to some real life(tm) issues, Bomb Shelter Radio for Thursday the 20th of February is cancelled. " The paperclip maximizer is the canonical thought experiment showing how an artificial general intelligence, even one designed competently and without malice, could ultimately destroy humanity. The thought experiment shows that AIs with apparently innocuous values could pose an existential threat . " -- Less Wrong Wiki To keep your brains lubricated for next week's show, may I suggest this article concerning AIs manufacturing the humble paperclip? The simulator (game) referenced in the article is amusing and makes you think. https://www.theverge.com/tldr/2017/10/11/16457742/ai-paperclips-thought-experiment-game-frank-lantz And a link to the simulator's author... https://twitter.com/flantz/status/917450884552036353 RELEASE THE HYPNODRONES!

Be afraid BUT read the article. Be afraid BUT take action. (I know, easier to say than to do) From the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists - Used without permission https://thebulletin.org/doomsday-clock/current-time/ " Humanity continues to face two simultaneous existential dangers—nuclear war and climate change—that are compounded by a threat multiplier, cyber-enabled information warfare, that undercuts society’s ability to respond. The international security situation is dire, not just because these threats exist, but because world leaders have allowed the international political infrastructure for managing them to erode."
