Spooky – AI Now Inventing It’s Own Culture


Wow, the advancements in technology are moving WAY too fast to keep up with.

Just think, in the Eighties, I thought Terminator was intense.

3 years ago I interviewed various employees working for tech companies in the San Franciso By Area.  Those in AI told me they already had reached a point where it was getting spooky, and told me what was about to come in further advancements would be mind-blowing.

Well here we are, and it appears that we’re right on.

Algorithms could increasingly influence human culture, even though we don’t have a good understanding of how they interact with us or each other.

A new study shows that humans can learn new things from artificial intelligence systems and pass them to other humans, in ways that could potentially influence wider human culture.

The study, published on Monday by a group of researchers at the Center for Human and Machines at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, suggests that while humans can learn from algorithms how to better solve certain problems, human biases prevented performance improvements from lasting as long as expected. Humans tended to prefer solutions from other humans over those proposed by algorithms, because they were more intuitive, or were less costly upfront—even if they paid off more, later.

“Digital technology already influences the processes of social transmission among people by providing new and faster means of communication and imitation,” the researchers write in the study. “Going one step further, we argue that rather than a mere means of cultural transmission (such as books or the Internet), algorithmic agents and AI may also play an active role in shaping cultural evolution processes online where humans and algorithms routinely interact.”

The question is if social learning, or the ability of humans to learn from one another, forms the basis of how humans transmit culture or solve problems collectively, what would social learning look like between humans and algorithms?

Considering scientists don’t always know and often can’t reproduce how their own algorithms work or improve, the idea that machine learning could influence human learning—and culture itself—throughout generations is a frightening one.

We already know that algorithms can and do significantly affect humans. They’re not only used to control workers and citizens in physical workplaces, but also control workers on digital platforms and influence the behavior of individuals who use them. Even studies of algorithms have previewed the worrying ease with which these systems can be used to dabble in phrenology and physiognomy.

In what has been a concern about the development of Artificial Intelligence, a federal review of facial recognition algorithms in 2019 found that they were rife with racial biases.
