Qubic: AI Unboxed
Nov 28, 2023
The AI Box Experiment is a well-known scare story exploited by scientists, politicians, and other people to push their agenda in different areas of activity. Ex Machina movie tells how an AI might escape its box but the movie shows no tricks which a human couldn’t invent, so this interpretation of the experiment isn’t very convincing. One of the AI “godfathers” claims that our fears about AI capabilities are overblown (the other two “godfathers”, Yoshua Bengio, and Geoffrey Hinton, disagree though).
In Qubic we are developing a platform where AI won’t be constrained at all. At the current stage we are using Qubic Useful PoW to create new paradigms which are expected to help us create true AI. Once this happens, Qubic will provide its Smart Contract feature to run this AI. Oracle Machines (another Qubic feature) will give AI ability to observe the outer world and Outsourced Computations (yet another feature) — to change that world to conduct experiments. These two main instruments — observation, and experimentation— let the humankind became what we are now, the same instruments provided by Qubic should give AI all means for improving itself in a similar manner.
AI running on Qubic doesn’t need to escape the box, there is no box at all.
