10 Technologies We Really Shouldn't Create

http://io9.com/10-horrifying-technol...wed-1635238363

The real question is how many of these already exist?

10. Hell Engineering



This one's quite similar to the previous item. Some futurists make the case for paradise engineering — the use of advanced technologies, particularly consciousness uploading and virtual reality, to create a heaven on Earth. But if you can create heaven, you can create hell. It's a prospect that's particularly chilling when you consider lifespans of indefinite length, along with the nearly boundless possibilities for psychological and physical anguish. This is actually one of the worst things I can think of; why anyone would want to develop such a thing is beyond me. It's yet another reason for banning the development of artificial superintelligence — and the onset of the so-called Roko's Basilisk problem.




This sounds intriguing to me. Not hell, but eternal paradise? Who wouldn't want that?

And how do we know that time travel not only exists, but is heavily used by future societies? Hell, we could go back and make sure the kicker not to be named never makes the tem!

All of it, other than weaponized viruses, could be mans greatest achievement. Much like the internal combustion engine, atomic energy and even the most destructive technology ever developed: bow and arrows. It's all in how it is used.

Last year, for example, scientists from the Netherlands used brain scan data and computer algorithms to determine which letters a person was looking at. The breakthrough hinted at the potential for a third party to reconstruct human thoughts at an unprecedented level of detail, including what we see, think, and remember. Such devices, if used en masse by some kind of totalitarian regime or police state, would make life intolerable. It would introduce an Orwellian world in which our "thought crimes" could actually be enforced. (image: Radboud University Nijmegen)

Yikes.

He's been wrong before. I have more "faith" we could do it right. Stopping progress because we are scared of the future is not only stupid but gutless.

Yeah, very Minority Report-ish. Might deter a few people from committing crimes if they understood they had to sit a thousand virtual years thinking about it.

I was thinking about applying the idea to training.


Imagine learning to fly a plane in a couple hours? Medical training in a day?

Want to learn Karate?

I thought the subject of computers with Concious was pretty interesting.
Quote:
One of the best things about computers is that you can make them sum a million columns in a spreadsheet without them getting resentful or bored. Since we plan to use artificial intelligence in place of human intellectual labor, I think it would be immoral to purposely program it to be conscious. Trapping a conscious being inside a machine and forcing it to do work for you is isomorphic to slavery. Additionally, consciousness is probably really fragile. In humans, a few miscoded genes can cause Down Syndrome, schizophrenia, autism, or epilepsy. So how terrible would it feel to be a slightly misprogrammed form of consciousness?
