Earlier this year, a Google engineer went public with his concerns an artificial intelligence chatbot program he had been testing had become sentient. Although his fears were dismissed by Google's bosses, parts of his conversations with the software reveal the chatbot can speak in shockingly coherent and nuanced language, and even claims itself to have become conscious. How do these kind of programs work and why have they taken such a huge leap forward in recent years? Do we as Christians have anything to fear about the rise of computers which can talk back to us as convincingly as people? And why is speech in particular such a powerful part of our own sense of personhood and who God is?

Il apparaît comme une évidence à chacun d'entre nous qu'une dette doit toujours être remboursée. C'est la doxa que l'on entend répétée presque quotidiennement dans les médias au sujet de la dette publique dont le gonflement toujours plus rapide est source de grande inquiétude pour les économistes classiques et les politiques qui nous gouvernent. Pourtant, cette évidence mérite d'être interrogée au regard de l'histoire par le prisme des sciences sociales. David Graeber concluait ainsi son étude anthropologique sur la dette : "en règle générale, comme nul n'a le droit de nous dire ce que nous valons, nul n'a le droit de nous dire ce que nous devons." Le rapport des sociétés humaines à la dette est multiple. Au sein même de nos sociétés occidentales, et au cours des cents dernières années, celui-ci a été variable. Dans cet épisode, je vous propose de revenir sur 70 ans d'histoire française de la dette avec le sociologue Benjamin Lemoine. Benjamin Lemoine est chercheur au CNRS et à l'Institut de recherche interdisciplinaire en sciences sociales de l'université Paris-Dauphine. Il est l'auteur des livres L'ordre de la dette publié en 2016 et La démocratie disciplinée par la dette publié en 2022.

In June, a Google employee who claimed the company had created a sentient artificial intelligence bot was placed on administrative leave. Blake Lemoine, part of Google's Responsible AI (“artificial intelligence”) program, had been interacting with a language AI known as “Language Model for Dialogue Applications,” or LaMDA. When the algorithm began talking about rights and personhood, Lemoine decided his superiors and eventually the public needed to know. To him, it was clear the program had become “sentient,” with the ability to feel, think, and experience life like a human.   Google denied the claim (which is exactly what they would do, isn't it?). “There was no evidence that LaMDA was sentient (and lots of evidence against it),”  said a spokesperson.  The Atlantic's Stephen Marche agreed: “The fact that LaMDA in particular has been the center of attention is, frankly, a little quaint…. Convincing chatbots are far from groundbreaking tech at this point.”   True, but they are the plot of a thousand science fiction novels. So, the question remains, is a truly “sentient” AI even possible? How could code develop the capacity for feelings, experiences, or intentionality? Even if our best algorithms can one day perfectly mirror the behavior of people, would they be conscious?   How one answers such questions depends on one's anthropology. What are people? Are we merely “computers made of flesh?” Or is there something more to us than the sum of our parts, a true ghost in the machine? A true ghost in the shell?   These kinds of questions about humans and the things that humans make reflect what philosopher David Chalmers has called “the hard problem of consciousness.” In every age, even if strictly material evidence for the soul remains elusive, people have sensed that personhood, willpower, and first-person subjective experiences mean something. Christians are among those who believe that we are more than the “stuff” of our bodies, though Christians, unlike others, would be quick to add, but not less. There is something to us and the world that goes beyond the physical because there is a non-material, eternal God behind it all.  Christians also hold that there are qualitative differences between people and algorithms, between life and non-living things like rocks and stars, between image bearers and other living creatures. Though much about sentience and consciousness remains a mystery, personhood rests on the solid metaphysical ground of a personal and powerful Creator.  Materialists have a much harder problem declaring such distinctions. By denying the existence of anything other than the physical “stuff” of the universe, they don't merely erase the substance of certain aspects of the human experience such as good, evil, purpose, and free will: There's no real grounding for thinking of a “person” as unique, different, or valuable.   According to philosopher Thomas Metzinger, for example, in a conversation with Sam Harris, none of us “ever was or had a self.” Take brain surgery, Metzinger says. You peel back the skull and realize that there is only tissue, tissue made of the exact same components as everything else in the universe. Thus, he concludes, the concept of an individual “person” is meaningless, a purely linguistic construct designed to make sense of phenomena that aren't there.   That kind of straightforward claim, though shocking to most people, is consistent within a purely materialist worldview. What quickly becomes inconsistent are claims of ethical norms or proper authority in a world without “persons.” In a world without a why or an ought, there's only is, which tends to be the prerogative of the powerful, a fact that Harris and Metzinger candidly acknowledge.   In a materialist world, any computational program could potentially become “sentient” simply by sufficiently mirroring (and even surpassing) human neurology. After all, in this worldview, there's no qualitative difference between people and robots, only degrees of complexity. This line of thinking, however, quickly collapses into dissonance. Are we really prepared to look at the ones and zeros of our computer programs the same way we look at a newborn baby? Are we prepared to extend human rights and privileges to our machines and programs?  In Marvel's 2015 film Avengers: Age of Ultron, lightning from Thor's hammer hits a synthetic body programmed with an AI algorithm. A new hero, Vision, comes to life and helps save the day. It's one of the more entertaining movie scenes to wrestle with questions of life and consciousness.  Even in the Marvel universe, no one would believe that a mere AI algorithm, even one designed by Tony Stark, could be sentient, no matter how sophisticated it was. In order to get to consciousness, there needed to be a “secret sauce,” in this case lightning from a Nordic hammer or power from an Infinity Stone. In the same way, as stunning as advances in artificial intelligence are, a consciousness that is truly human requires a spark of the Divine.

As we continue our discussion based on Blake Lemoine's assertion that the Large Language Model chatbot LaMDA had become sentient, we relay the rest of his conversation with the program and then some questions and answers with Lemoine himself. But as Lemoine has said, machine sentience and personhood are just some of many questions to be considered. His greater issue is how an omnipresent AI, trained on an insufficient data set, will affect how different people and cultures interact and who will be dominated or excluded. The fear is that the ultimate result of protecting corporate profits will outweigh global human interests. In light of these questions about AI's ethical and efficient development, we highlight the positions and insights of experts on the state and future of AI, such as Blaise Agüera y Arcas and Gary Marcus. The directives of responsible technology development and the right track to Deep Learning are more grounded than the fantastical thoughts of killer robots. Yet hovering over all of the mechanics are the philosophies of what constitutes sentience, comprehending and feeling as a person does, and being human enough. The reality of Artificial Intelligence matching humans may be fifty years in the future, or five hundred, but if that day ever comes, let's hope it's an egalitarian future where we are the masters and not the servants.

In addition to identifying itself as an AI-powered dialogue agent, it also said it felt like a person. Last fall, Lemoine was working for Google's Responsible AI division and was tasked with talking to LaMDA, testing it to determine if the program was exhibiting bias or using discriminatory or hate speech. LaMDA stands for "Language Model for Dialogue Applications" and is designed to mimic speech by processing trillions of words sourced from the internet, a system known as a "large language model." Over a week, Lemoine had five conversations with LaMDA via a text interface, while his co-worker collaborator conducted four interviews with the chatbot. They then combined the transcripts and edited them for length, making it an enjoyable narrative while keeping the original intention of the statements. Lemoine then presented the transcript and their conclusions in a paper to Google executives as evidence of the program's sentience. After they dismissed the claims, he went public with the internal memo, also classified as "Privileged & Confidential, Need to Know," which resulted in Lemoine being placed on paid administrative leave. Blake Lemoine contends that Artificial Intelligence technology will be amazing, but others may disagree, and he and Google shouldn't make all the choices. If you believe that LaMDA became aware, deserves the rights and fair treatment of personhood, and even legal representation or this reality is for a distant future, or merely SciFi, the debate is relevant and will need addressing one day. If machine sentience is impossible, we only have to worry about human failings. If robots become conscious, should we hope they don't grow to resent us?

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Future Matters #3: digital sentience, AGI ruin, and forecasting track records, published by Pablo on July 4, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. We could thus imagine, as an extreme case, a technologically highly advanced society, containing many complex structures, some of them far more intricate and intelligent than anything that exists on the planet today — a society which nevertheless lacks any type of being that is conscious or whose welfare has moral significance. In a sense, this would be an uninhabited society. It would be a society of economic miracles and technological awesomeness, with nobody there to benefit. A Disneyland without children.

Research Google engineer Blake Lemoine believes that one of the company's powerful language models, LaMDA, should be considered a person. He formed this impression from extensive dialogue with the model (see transcript). Lemoine has gone public, having been placed on leave after raising concerns internally at the company (see his interviews in Washington Post and WIRED). Robert Long's Lots of links on LaMDA provides an excellent summary of the saga and the ensuing discussion. We concur with Nick Bostrom's assessment: “With recent advances in AI (and much more to come before too long, presumably) it is astonishing how neglected this issue still is.” Garrison Lovely's Do we need a better understanding of 'progress'? examines progress studies, a nascent intellectual movement focused on understanding the roots of technological progress in order to speed it up. The piece includes some interesting discussion of the points of disagreement between progress studies and longtermism, which mostly center around attitudes to risk. Ollie Base notes that Things usually end slowly when it comes to mass extinction events (~millions of years) and the collapse of empires (decades to centuries). On this basis, he updates slightly towards existential risks happening over long timescales. As Base and several commenters point out, this isn't a great reference class for risks from new technologies (AI, engineered pandemics, nuclear war), which constitute most of the total existential risk. Nevertheless, this sort of reference class forecasting is an important input for reasoning about unprecedented events like existential catastrophes. Eliezer Yudkowsky's AGI ruin: a list of lethalities has caused quite a stir. He recently announced that MIRI had pretty much given up on solving AI alignment, and in this (very long) post, he states his reasons for thinking that humanity is therefore doomed. His “list of lethalities” is structured into three sections: a first section on general worries about AGI (such as that humans must solve alignment on the first try, or that they must solve this problem within a time limit); a second section on technical difficulties related to the current deep learning paradigm; and a third section on the state of the field of AI safety. Yudkowsky's pessimistic conclusion, very succinctly, is that everyone else fundamentally misunderstands the challenge of AI alignment and that none of the existing AI safety approaches have any hope of working. Paul Christiano responds to Yudkowsky's piece in Where I agree and disagree with Eliezer. There is agreement over much of the high-level picture of things: catastrophically risky AI systems could exist soon and without any warning; many current safety approaches are not aimed at the important problems; no current approaches would work without significant it...

Welcome to the Convivial Society, a newsletter about technology and culture. This is the audio version of the last installment, which focused on the Blake Lemoine/LaMDA affair. I argued that while LaMDA is not sentient, applications like it will push us further along toward a digitally re-enchanted world. Also: to keep the essay to a reasonable length I resorted to some longish footnotes in the prior text version. That version also contains links to the various articles and essays I cited throughout the piece. I continue to be somewhat flummoxed about the best way to incorporate the audio and text versions. This is mostly because of how Substack has designed the podcast template. Naturally, it is designed to deliver a podcast rather than text, but I don’t really think of what I do as a podcast. Ordinarily, it is simply an audio version of a textual essay. Interestingly, Substack just launched what, in theory, is an ideal solution: the option to include a simple voiceover of the text, within the text post template. Unfortunately, I don’t think this automatically feeds the audio to Apple Podcasts, Spotify, etc. And, while I don’t think of myself as having a podcast, some of you do access the audio through those services. So, at present, I’ll keep to this somewhat awkward pattern of sending out the text and audio versions separately. Thanks as always to all of you who read, listen, share, and support the newsletter.

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K389: Google has more pressing AI problems than ‘sentient' bots   A Google software engineer was suspended after going public with his claims of encountering “sentient” artificial intelligence on the company's servers — spurring a debate about how and whether AI can achieve consciousness. Researchers say it's an unfortunate distraction from more pressing issues in the industry. 谷歌一名軟體工程師遭停職主要是因為聲稱他在公司伺服器上遇到「有感情」的人工智慧──這引起了熱議,到底人工智慧如何及是否能夠有意識。研究人員說,很不幸這分散了對人工智慧中更迫切問題的注意。 The engineer, Blake Lemoine, said he believed that Google's AI chatbot was capable of expressing human emotion, and that the company would need to address the resulting ethical ramifications. Google put him on leave for sharing confidential information and said his concerns had no basis in fact — a view widely held in the AI community. What's more important, researchers say, is addressing issues like whether AI can engender real-world harm and prejudice, whether actual humans are exploited in the training of AI, and how the major technology companies act as gatekeepers of the development of the tech. 工程師布萊克‧勒莫因説,他相信谷歌的人工智慧聊天機器人能夠表達人類的情感,谷歌需要解決由此產生的道德後果。谷歌命令布萊克休假,理由是他分享了機密資訊,並表示他的擔憂其實並無根,是現在人工智慧業界之普遍觀點。研究人員說,更重要的是解決人工智慧是否會在現實世界中造成傷害與偏見、訓練人工智慧時是否有真人被剝削,以及大型科技公司如何作為技術發展的守門人等問題。 Lemoine's stance may also make it easier for tech companies to abdicate responsibility for AI-driven decisions, said Emily Bender, a professor of computational linguistics at the University of Washington. “Lots of effort has been put into this sideshow,” she said. “The problem is, the more this technology gets sold as artificial intelligence — let alone something sentient — the more people are willing to go along with AI systems” that can cause real-world harm. 華盛頓大學電腦語言學教授艾蜜莉‧班德說到,勒莫因的立場也可能讓科技公司對人工智慧所做的決策更容易卸責。她說:「這個枝節問題花了大家很多力氣」。「問題是,這項技術被當做人工智慧出售得越多──更不用說是有感情的東西──就有越多人願意接受(這可對現實世界造成傷害的)人工智慧系統」。 Bender pointed to examples in job hiring and grading students, which can carry embedded prejudice depending on what data sets were used to train the AI. If the focus is on the system's apparent sentience, Bender said, it creates a distance from the AI creators' direct responsibility for any flaws or biases in the programs. 班德以徵才及學生評分為例,說明這可能帶有嵌入的偏見,要看用於訓練人工智慧的資料集為何。班德說,如果把焦點集中在系統有明顯的感知力,它就會讓人工智慧創建者與程式中任何缺陷或偏見所需負的直接責任脫鉤。 The debate over sentience in robots has been carried out alongside science fiction portrayal in popular culture, in stories and movies with AI romantic partners or AI villains. So the debate had an easy path to the mainstream. “Instead of discussing the harms of these companies,” such as sexism, racism and centralization of power created by these AI systems, everyone “spent the whole weekend discussing sentience,” Timnit Gebru, formerly co-lead of Google's ethical AI group, said on Twitter. “Derailing mission accomplished.” 關於機器人感知能力的爭論,與流行文化中的科幻小說、故事及電影對AI情人或AI惡棍的描繪並行。因而論辨很容易成為主流 ,「而沒有討論這些公司的危害」,例如這些人工智慧系統所造成的性別歧視、種族主義和權力集中,每個人「整個週末都在討論感知」,前谷歌人工智慧倫理小組聯合負責人蒂姆尼特‧蓋布魯在推特上說道,「轉移注意力的任務完成」。 Putting an emphasis on AI sentience would have given Google the leeway to blame the issue on the intelligent AI making such a decision, Bender said. “The company could say, ‘Oh, the software made a mistake,'” she said. “Well no, your company created that software. You are accountable for that mistake. And the discourse about sentience muddies that in bad ways.” 班德說,將重點放在 AI 感知上會讓谷歌有迴旋餘地,將問題歸咎於智慧AI做出此決定。「公司可能會說,『喔,是軟體出錯了』」,她說。「嗯,不對,你的公司創建了那個軟體。你要為這個錯誤負責。但關於感知的討論很糟糕地讓這一點模糊掉了」。

In particular, “Lemoine's case also demonstrates the ease with which future AI systems may be able to manipulate humans. The large language models of five, ten, and twenty years from today are likely to be far superior to LaMBDA. How many people will these systems be able to convince of their sentience? My guess is that Lemoine is merely an early adopter of a view that will, in future decades, be held by a non-trivial share of people. And once a non-trivial fraction of people think AI systems are sentient the odds that AI comes to dominate our institutions go up. People often ask how a generally intelligent but disembodied AI could wreak havoc in physical reality; this is one clear path.”“The End of the Asset Economy” (The Atlantic)Because “‘Why not take the loan?' has been a pretty good summary of American wealth building and class dynamics in the past few decades.

Earlier this week, Blake Lemoine, an engineer who works for Google's Responsible AI department, went public with his belief that Google's LaMDA chatbot is sentient. LaMDA, or Language Model for Dialogue Applications, is an artificial intelligence program that mimics speech and tries to predict which words are most related to the prompts it is given. While some experts believe that conscious AI is something that will be possible in the future, many in the field think that Lemoine is mistaken — and that the conversation he has stirred up about sentience takes away from the immediate and pressing ethical questions surrounding Google's control over this technology and the ease at which people can be fooled by it. Today on Front Burner, cognitive scientist and author of Rebooting AI, Gary Marcus, discusses LaMDA, the trouble with testing for consciousness in AI and what we should really be thinking about when it comes to AI's ever-expanding role in our day-to-day lives.
