I hope this message finds you all well. I wanted to share with you an ongoing project of mine that aims to explore the future of AI-human collaboration through a unique lens: fiction. The project, titled "The Story of Laika and GPT-∞", unfolds as a narrative where a human researcher, Laika, interacts with an increasingly advanced AI entity, GPT-∞, to collaboratively develop a "Universal Framework of Co-Existence."
The narrative serves as a thought experiment, projecting possible scenarios of AI evolution, ethical considerations, and co-existence models. But it is more than just fiction; it carries a serious message and aims to provoke thoughtful discussions about AI safety, the potentialities of AI-human collaboration, and our collective future.
In the narrative, the "Universal Framework of Co-Existence" evolves progressively, incorporating the total accumulated knowledge of humanity, and continuously updating and refining itself. The intention is not to predict the future, but rather to inspire dialogue and contemplation about the questions and challenges that might arise as AI advances.
Though it is presented as a story, it addresses real-world concerns and hopes to contribute positively to the discourse on AI safety. In that respect, it aligns with the principles of Effective Altruism, with a focus on long-termism, cooperation, and proactive planning for global challenges.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could take some time to read and share your thoughts, comments, and critiques. The narrative and the early draughts of the Universal Framework are freely accessible, and the project is always evolving. Any input you might have could greatly enrich the project and foster a more nuanced understanding of AI's potential implications.
You can find the project overview, the story, and the early versions of the Framework here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BL-iV1mA6GLh4poJSYc7FHTBcdhRGHLysnnxUbAdan4
This project, at its heart, is an exploration of possibilities, a call for discussion, and an invitation for collective wisdom. It's my hope that we can use this platform as a catalyst to spark meaningful conversations about our shared future with AI.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and engaging in fruitful discussions.
Best regards, Laika
