The Definition of AI

These days, people wonder about the definition of AI. Does it mean AGI, as in something truly intelligent? Does machine learning count as AI? When I tell people I won’t use AI, one of the first questions they ask is, “what is AI to you?”

People who are wary of AI might also like to know the answer to this question. If you don’t want to use AI, you might like to know what to avoid. Of course, everyone needs to come up with their own moral code about AI. However, I will propose a rule that I believe should be in everyone’s code:

Avoid AI that makes creative decisions.

Why is this so important? It is because in order to have free-functioning of your creative spirit, you should not be exposed to an extremely fast generator of creative suggestion. AI is such a generator. Why should you avoid fast generators of creative suggestions? It is simply because it will crush your own free-functioning mind.

Although I believe that all AI research should be destroyed, and further research should be halted, when it comes to using AI, it might be almost impossible to completely avoid. Some of the products you buy at the store might be made by companies who use AI.

Yet, you still have control over using AI yourself to make creative decisions, such as using AI to write a paragraph of text for you. Because you have this control, you should exercise this control and avoid using AI in this context. This is the only thing that will give you a fighting chance at being a normal human being in the context of AI manipulation of the human spirit.
