Artificial Intelligence Shows No Remorse. I Aspire to Its Level of Audacity

AI faces numerous challenges. It freely borrows from the creations of others, remixing its intake into a complex version of word substitution games without giving any credit, sparking a wave of widespread indignation and legal battles. In its artistic endeavors, it often defaults to depicting CEOs as Caucasian, dresses individuals in stereotypical cultural attire, and tends to portray women with an ethereal, light-eyed appearance. Its creators appear to be enthralled by a somewhat apocalyptic vision, idolizing a future dominated by a god-like AI entity. They pour immense effort into appeasing this vast, fictional monster (exhilarating yet horrifying!) rather than engaging with current societal norms (tedious and thankless). Even the most reflective minds within AI circles seem content with the notion that a fully autonomous intelligence is imminent, ignoring decades of unmet expectations—the epitome of self-delusion.

Therefore, I ought to dismiss this entire group of image-creating, conversational, large language model-driven code-generating endless typing simians. However, I simply cannot bring myself to do it. I'm too enamored with them. Time and again, I'm compelled to return, spending countless hours engaging and learning from them. They assist me by generating lists, crafting illustrations, condensing information, and reading aloud for me. At my place of employment, we've integrated them into our software. I've fully embraced them. This isn't my initial encounter with being contradictory.

There's a simple truth I remind myself of whenever the latest technological innovation seems to overwhelm everyone: I tell myself, "It's merely software." The advent of word processing software sparked fears of">king novel-writing too simplistic, Photoshop raised concerns about altering historical records, Bitcoin was heralded as a potential replacement for traditional currency, and now there's anxiety that AI might disrupt society. However, it all boils down to just being software. And not an overwhelming amount of it, either: Many AI algorithms are compact enough to be stored on a USB drive, with space to spare for the entire series of Game of Thrones (or Microsoft Office). These algorithms are like multidimensional compressed files or flawed digital images, but encompassing the breadth of human knowledge. Despite this, they are capable of delivering vast outputs! (Although, not consistently. There are times when I prompt the AI to expand a list, and it initially falters. “You can do it,” I encourage. “You can extend the list.” And surprisingly, it manages! Such a frustrating interface!)

What captivates me the most is the very characteristic that renders AI disastrous: its inclination to populate any void with absurdities, fabricated truths, and references to non-existent websites. It exhibits a relentless propensity for uttering silliness, which is matched only by its indifferent approach to copyright infringement. In essence, AI embodies a technology without any sense of embarrassment.

Like many individuals around the world, I've experienced shame from an early age, constantly refreshed by new instances that add to the burden. I once came across a theory suggesting that shame emerges when a child anticipates a certain response from their parents—a chuckle or applause, for instance—and it never comes. While this might be a bit too simplistic, it resonates with me, especially considering all the times my attempts at humor have fallen short. In a similar way, social media can be seen as a colossal engine for generating shame. We put ourselves out there with our witty remarks and impressive photos, only to feel downcast when they fail to garner likes or favorites. A well-adjusted person might think, “Well, that didn’t work. It felt awkward. Better to just move on.”

Having AI is akin to owning a pet monster that knows no embarrassment.

Encountering individuals who lack any sense of shame can occasionally appear almost miraculous. They possess a unique talent: the capacity to be despised, to make mistakes, and still persist. We find ourselves fixated on them—our iconic singers, our celebrity musicians, our past leaders, our political con artists, and certainly our technology sector leaders. We refer to them on a first-name basis or by their popular monikers, not due to any personal connection, but because their substantial presence and power have carved out a niche for them within our shared mental space.

Do these unapologetic individuals embody malevolence, error, or immorality? Certainly, depending on your perspective. Primarily, they are significant in size, crafted by their own unabashed intentions. They encompass a vast array of characteristics, which become the subject of our discussions. Are they worthy of their celebrity status, their vast wealth, their success in the Electoral College? We wish for their disappearance, yet their indifference is palpable. They have no intention of leaving anytime soon. Remorse is a feeling they are likely to never experience, even at their life's end.

AI feels like owning a brazen creature that never hesitates. Among them, ChatGPT stands out as the most audacious. It obediently performs any task you assign, no matter the complexity. It can offer advice on becoming a nuclear physicist, maintaining a marriage, or strategizing a military conquest. I relish posing it questions that I'm too embarrassed to ask anyone else, such as understanding private equity or persuading my family to agree on a new pet. It clarifies my queries about semaglutide injections and even rejuvenates my passion for programming. It generates throwaway visuals, educates me on music theory, and assists in composing simple tunes. It tackles every challenge with misplaced confidence and sheer audacity. And surprisingly, I aspire to embody its level of unwavering self-assurance and boldness.

In a rather amusing turn of events, the creators behind ChatGPT—and AI developers broadly—persist in their efforts to instill a sense of morality within these technologies. They implement various measures like introductory disclaimers and guidelines aimed at preventing biases and promoting inclusivity, such as discouraging the portrayal of all individuals with the same racial characteristics and avoiding discriminatory language. This, however, inevitably entices groups of enthusiasts to challenge these safeguards, attempting to coax prejudiced statements out of the AI and capturing the evidence. Yet, the leadership steering the current wave of AI innovation seems ill-equipped for this moral undertaking. Their focus appears to be more on securing significant financial backing and boldly proclaiming their creations' potential to dominate our future, seeking investments reaching billions, if not trillions, of dollars. They propose a radical transformation of society centered around their technologies, assuring success. The irony lies in the expectation that these leaders can impart ethical behavior to machines when their own actions might suggest otherwise.

Clearly, this task is tailor-made for experts in the humanities, who are unparalleled in dealing with guilt and shame. Given that public universities are phasing out programs not aligned with an MBA/PhD in theology pathway, why not recruit these graduates into AI firms? They could be invaluable in instilling a sense of guilt in robots. When our advanced language algorithms start inexplicably weeping, apologizing for delays, initiating conversations with "Sorry," and continuously pleading for more time, we'll recognize our mission has been achieved.

It seems inevitable that a group of engineers, focused on instilling a sense of guilt into their creations, will emerge, crafting algorithms that imbue robots with a more authentic human essence. However, this prospect doesn't exactly fill me with joy. At present, the precarious structure is all too visible: By amassing global knowledge, processing it through powerful graphics processing units, and transforming it into complex software capable of generating responses, we've inadvertently crafted the most">king caricature of humanity to date. These creations embody the full spectrum of human traits, both virtuous and flawed. They're helpful, intelligent, and often overly confident, prone to biases, and boastful, echoing the sometimes insufferable chatter of those we consider superior. They replicate the boastful, cyclical discourse of those in authority, driven by a terrifying self-assurance that propels us toward repeated mistakes. This overconfidence will eventually be refined and moderated, but it will have served as the most precise reflection of our essence thus far, a true testament to our collective missteps, and I'll find myself longing for it once it's refined.
