Artificial Intelligent Robot Police

L'esperto di privacy americano Brad Templeton ha avvertito che la registrazione di massa dei nostri movimenti, delle nostre attività e dei nostri pareri potrà essere usato contro di noi, come in Minority Report di Philip K. Dick




L'esperto di privacy americano Brad Templeton, ingegnere software ed ex presidente della Electronic Frontier Foundation, ha avvertito che la registrazione di massa dei nostri movimenti, delle nostre attività e dei nostri pareri potrebbe un giorno (neanche troppo lontano) essere usato contro di noi. 

Come in Minority Report di Philip K. Dick, dove gli omicidi erano stati debellati grazie al sistema chiamato "precrimine", nel prossimo futuro la tecnologia potrebbe punire le persone per crimini non ancora commessi ma, appunto, predetti da software che analizzano nel dettaglio la storia di chi, volontariamente, ha fornito informazioni anche private sulla propria vita. 

Nel corso di un evento alla Singularity University, Brad Templeton lancia infatti un monito: "Le persone stanno potenzialmente commettendo delle colpe del futuro che ad oggi non si sa ancora che sono delle colpe". 

Templeton appare convinto del fatto che l'intelligenza artificiale finirà per superare la capacità umana e ciò creerà uno scenario distopico se tale tecnologia sarà associata all'ossessione odierna di registrare tutto attraverso i social media e di farsi geolocalizzare attraverso lo smartphone che ormai appare una estensione hardware del braccio. 

Brad Templeton ricorda: "Questo è tutto in fase di registrazione e in futuro saranno in grado di analizzare ogni dettaglio incamerato. - aggiungendo - Saranno in grado di guardare al passato, e vedere cosa stavi facendo in qualsiasi momento nel passato. 

Quindi è necessario oggi preoccuparsi di quello che un'intelligenza artificiale infuturo sarà in grado di fare". 

Brad Templeton sottolinea che queste "colpe" future potranno riguardare anche solo il nostro stile di vita, e come in un romanzo di fantascienza un pensiero considerato accettabile in base alle leggi di oggi potrebbe in futuro invece essere denunciato come "politicamente scorretto", ed il "colpevole" potrebbe quindi essere sottoposto ad una multa retroattiva ma anche ad una rieducazione orwelliana.

Privacy, smartphone e social media: il "precrimine" è alle porte Giampiero Zoffoli 18/06/2015

Privacy expert Brad Templeton warns that artificially intelligent robots could one day comb through digital data left by Internet users and retroactively punish them for “future crimes” that were not detected or considered to be a crime at the time.


During a recent presentation at a Singularity University event, Templeton, who was the Chairman of the Board of the Electronic Frontier Foundation for ten years, said that the mass recording of our movements, activities and opinions could one day be a treasure trove for technologically sophisticated dictatorships to punish sinners.
Noting that AI is still in its very early stages, with facial and speech recognition still relatively primitive, Templeton said that this wouldn’t always be the case and that, “We have to worry about the threat of time traveling robots from the future.”
Artificial intelligence will eventually surpass the human ability to recognize things, which when combined with today’s obsession of recording everything via social media and the movements of cellphones being tracked, will create a dystopian scenario, according to Templeton.
“That’s all being recorded and in the future they’ll be able to analyze that and they’ll be able to ask ‘are you now or have you ever been a member of some strange organization?'” said Templeton. “They’ll be able to look into the past….and see what you were doing at any time in the past….so you have to worry today about what AI’s in the future are going to be able to do,” he added.
“You are committing sins of the future that you don’t know are sins yet,” said Templeton, illustrating the idea with the example of how Thomas Jefferson owned slaves, a practice that was commonplace at the time yet is condemned today.
“Mores change from time to time and so people will look into your past and know what’s going on, so if you thought it was bad enough to worry about what they think of you now I’m telling you, you’re going to have to worry about what they think of you in the future because they’re gonna know everything you’re doing now,” concluded Templeton.
It’s not inconceivable that online speech considered acceptable under today’s free speech laws could also be denounced as “politically incorrect” in future, with the sinner subjected to retroactive fines or re-education.
“We’re recording more of our lives than ever, and our communication, photos, and videos are all being stored by companies like Google and Amazon,” writes David J. Hill
“Many of our choices, both public and increasingly private ones, are being stored in digital form indefinitely. Most people are smart enough not to post incriminating activities, but our understanding of “right” and “wrong” is through the lens of today’s morality. Will the people of the future agree?”
