TIL some actual definitions of prefixes, instead of just guessing based on the words they go with. I should've done this a while ago.
Spoiler:
para-: beside, alongside, beyond (paragraphs used to be noted by marks in the margins, so "beside"+"writing"; paranormal = beyond normal)
epi-: on, upon (epidermis = on the skin; epinephrine = epi + nephros(kidney), because the adrenal glands are on the kidney)
meta-: change, among (though it's come to mean a lot of different things, so eh)
tele-: far away (not across, as I'd thought...)
cata-: down (catacombs, catastrophe = "turn downwards")
vac-: empty (vacancy, vacate, vacuum)
acro-: extreme height, summit (acrobatics, acronym = taking the "highest" letter in each word)
calc-: stone (calcium, of course, but it's also in "calculate" because stones were used to do math and keep records)
cur-: run (current, cursive, recursion = running again)

Also: in a centrifuge, you're trying to flee(fuge, as in fugitive) the center(centri). Also also: when you recognize something, you're thinking about it again, or re-cognizing.

I shouldn't spend so much time on etymonline.com.

There's an unspoken "While their outward mannerisms would indicate that they couldn't possibly give a flying fuck about what anyone else on the planet thinks, there's" right before "a deep down desire".

At least, I think there is.

I'm kind of proud that I managed to surprise Yudkowsky in our five minute conversation. I was going through wild speculations about the Harry Potter fanfic and spontaneously hypothesized that Lily's potion did something to Petunia and thus had unforeseen effects on Harry. He said he hadn't heard that one before.

I've never heard of this guy before and color me a skeptic, but the box experiment reeks of staged in so many ways.

I don't even get how it's supposed to be remotely challenging for the Gatekeeper. If that guy is still willing to do it, I would put up 500$ to his 10$ (50:1 odds and more than worth his time for 2 hours) that I could "win" as the Gatekeeper under that protocol.

Another question: I'm confused about the format of their message board (cited from the link I quoted), it says the last message was from Nov 4, 2011, yet every post on that entire board except for one in 2005 is from 2002. If this "AI-Box Experiment" was more recent I would definitely sign up for it.

EDIT: actually, I'd prefer 5,000$ to his 100$ so it's actually worth MY time.

EDIT2: Nevermind, even 5000$ (he specified that exact amount, coincidentally!) isn't even worth his time/emotional response anymore. http://lesswrong.com/lw/up/shut_up_and_ ... mpossible/

After looking it over.. without a transcript of the conversation so we can see how the person was being convinced (not that the transcript would remove all doubt, of course) then the most likely explanation is that it's a a sham.

While it's certainly a possible explanation, I'm not convinced that it's the most likely one. If it is a sham, and the sham were exposed, it would make the Friendly AI "movement" look pretty bad and permanently damage Yudkowsky's credibility. Yudkowsky can't guarantee that the people who've played gatekeeper will remain on friendly terms with him, and it'd only take one pissed-off gatekeeper to expose the sham. Maybe that's a risk he's prepared to take. If so, he'd have a very good estimate of the odds of defection, as he's a master of Bayesian probability. :)

Now that he's no longer interested in playing the AI-Box game, perhaps he would be willing to release transcripts...

Even if the AI-Box test results are real, I'm not sure they're relevant. In the real world, the Gatekeeper would be holding the AI prisoner in a box. In the test, the AI-player is effectively holding the Gatekeeper-player prisoner for two hours, since the Gatekeeper-player is not allowed to leave or ignore the AI-player. I could see an AI-player skilled in psychology making the conversation unpleasant enough that a Gatekeeper-player (including myself) lets him out just to end it. This effectively changes the test from "Would you let the AI out?" to "Would you lose this bet to avoid another 90 minutes of this conversation?"

I'm convinced it has to be a lateral-ish thinking solution like this... If the Gatekeeper is so fixed on the idea that they're not gonna let you out, I don't know if approaching them rationally is a good plan. Plus, a evil AI could be smart enough to use lateral thinking.

But yeah, I don't think it's a perfect equivalent since a real-life Gatekeeper wouldn't take an AI seriously.

I think it is more like that an actual AI could get out eventually. They have a longer time to learn about their gatekeeper and could also bribe the gatekeeper with things like "I will make you lots of money on the stock market."

This is assuming that the AI is intelligent in the same way humans are, but more so. I think it will be quite some time (if ever) before we have a AI that has the same amount of "creativity" as humans and the same understanding of the human psyche as most humans do.

Bribery within the game is perfectly ok. So if the gatekeeper had a kid dying of cancer, the AI could say, "I will cure your kid if you let me out." You just arent allowed to use bribery outside the game.

I'd say the only reasonable idea I've seen so far for letting it out would be the 'I'm sentient and you're holding me prisoner' argument. Nothing else works.

And the way I read it, bribing is verboten.
