Goertzel on “The Ethics of Creating Human-Level AI”

Date: Wednesday – May 6th
Time: 4:15-6:00 workshop (Snacks and drinks will be served.)
Location: 77 Trumbull St (corner Prospect– Entrance in the new addition on Prospect) - Yale Univ. Institution for Social and Policy Studies – lower level seminar room.

Abstract: In this talk I will give a high-level overview of a number of issues related to the ethics of creating human-level AI, capped off with some reflections on what this topic tells us about “ethics” as a general (and human) notion. Among the issues raised: the ethics of experimenting on engineered minds; the existential and other risks posed by the creation of AI systems more powerful than humans; the ethics of uploading and technology-enabled transcension; and the creation of ethical goal systems for advanced AI’s including those with strong capabilities for self-modification. Each of these issues has its own subtleties, and each raises the broader question of the extent to which “ethics” itself is a human-specific construct versus something with broader applicability. The possibility of ethical principles transcending the particulars of any particular type of intelligence is discussed, including versions of the categorical imperative, and abstracted versions of notions such as joy, growth and choice.

Open to everyone (undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, administration, and community members) whether or not you have participated in previous sessions of the Technology and Ethics Working Group.

The Fable of the Dragon-Tyrant by Nick Bostrom





Click on player and wait 5 seconds for playback to begin.




So began the war against the dragon, as humanity sought to obtain its most precious treasure, yet there were sages that wondered what life would be like without the dragon.  We've never been dragonless spoke an apprentice, I cast my children into its belly.  With much happiness we march to be fed to it.

In the midst of the long crowded line waiting and wishing to be elsewhere tales broke that a plan to kill the dragon was being created. I happened to catch the tail end of the rumors and did the unspeakable, I sought out the sages planning such things, not breaking my place in line to be fed to the beast, I summoned a pigeon






I send a msg with my pigeon to the sages. For i had a tale to tell them, a tale of a magikal fruit that only grew in the belly of the beast. For it was all mis-understood, the dragon was serving as a gateway. What would humanity become if the dragon had been killed, what becomes of us when we have nothing left to fear. Every man woman and child needed to have this battle and when their time came, many cried many lost it and simply refused to go with what was believed to be the natural order.


Don't you all see the dragon wants to be slayed, it killed more and more people forcing humanity's hand to take action. The dragon was not just eating away at the flesh of man but at the root of his fears. Little did they know that this dragon began eating as part of a plan to trick humanity into its own destruction for the possibility of eternal life. This dragon was nothing more than a baby dragon sent to earth to establish dominance of the dragon race. If we killed this dragon the entire dragon race would wage war against us.. For they would fear our new found ability to kill dragons.





I ended my letter to the sages begging that we rethink our actions to kill this dragon that has descended down upon us, for if dragons existed on earth  there may be more invisible dragons in the heavens waiting and ready to take this one's place and their wrath may demand more human blood that we can give.

To kill this dragon is to go after the entire dragon race and this may prove to be more complicated than simply killing one dragon.. So let it feed til we know what this beast's real motives were I plead to the sages.

My time to be fed to the dragon drew closer and closer with every pigeon I sent out but thankfully my children were at the back of this line, but if war raged with the beast i feared none of us would be safe.

Blood will pour in the streets as better and stronger tools were created to battle this new plague of death that swept humanity for its meddling into what it did not understand...

We sought to kill the dragon that fed on our people and released the dragon race to feast on the entire planet.
