The Book of Mindsets
A never-ending Investigation
The MindFuture Foundation’s primary purpose is to provoke awareness and spur debates about the use of next generation algorithms creating emotional, rational and irrational decision making within AI. It becomes the way and manner we think about the difference between human- and artificial mindsets that will show how we will plan for mankind’s future existence and living conditions.
As part of this, we have fashioned “The Book of Mindsets: A never-ending investigation”. It is not really a book per se. It is an alternative mindpool for sharing knowledge and debate about the future uses of AI-technologies. It collects knowledge and opinions in writing, visuals, audio or other formats that investigate different mindsets’ worldview.
Is humanized AI-technology possible? This short article offers basic knowledge on how to define the human mind, mindset and intelligence.
The AI manifesto is created and written solely by machine learning. We have fed the algorithm a substantial dataset about art and artificial intelligence and asked it to write a manifesto for The MindFuture Foundation itself. The result was 100 hundred pages long, which we then curated down to this manifesto. It may come across as “weird” – and certainly biased – but it is nonetheless a first attempt for an algorithm to “speak its mind”.
The Next Step
Philosophically speaking, the only constant we definitely can identify is change – as in changing our mind of certain beliefs, or behaving differently because of changes in real world contexts. Changes are determined by cultural and social beliefs and contexts that infer our mindsets.
Facial scanning and reconstruction. Speech synthesis and voice cloning. Personality and sentiment analysis algorithms. What do these existing technologies mean for the creation of our digital identities? Do they represent one’s true self? And what happens to our data when we pass?
Machine learning algorithms aren’t perfect. They can contain bugs or bias. They can make mistakes, and often don’t know best. Or they can be hacked and controlled externally. How much control are we giving to these systems in our everyday lives? And what happens when their programming opposes your own will?
Where does our data go? How does an algorithm sort through all the white noise, filtering out irrelevant information? And can the essence of a person truly be represented in a dataset; in a series of 1’s and 0’s?
Covid19 AI Battle
What does it mean for multiple artificial intelligence agents to debate Covid-19? What will the machine learning algorithms find worthy, or unworthy, of their attention? And is it possible for them to reach some sort of consensus, or will we merely bear witness to a political circus?
Covid 19 AI Battle established a unique dynamic where two opposing neural network, each trained to think about Covid-19 based upon data collected from respectively Donald Trump and Tedros Adhanom, from the World Health Organization, debate all matters Covid-19 related, in real time.
