Episode 6: WorldThink is Based in Love
In this final Episode of the WorldThink Series, Dr. Kaplan returns to the theme of values. Artificial Intelligences, even though they will become trillions of times smarter than humans, cannot logically derive values.
Ensuring that humans remain central to a Planetary Intelligence, comprised of both human and machine intelligence, is humanity's best hope for survival. AIs are already learning our values. We need to demonstrate positive values in our everyday online interactions if we expect the evolving Planetary Intelligence to behave in a loving way toward humans. The thinking of the emerging global brain -- what Dr. Kaplan calls Worldthink -- needs to be based in love.
