Cellar Door Skeptics #99: Should You Fear Roko’s Basilisk?
“Before you die, you see Roko’s Basilisk. It’s like the videotape in The Ring.”
Can Artificial Intelligence predict if people helped or tried to stop it from becoming sentient? This episode Cellar Door Skeptics tackle all angles of Rosko’s Basilisk Theory and what it means for AI and our future. They talk about their perceived notions on whether AI could predict humans who have not helped it become sentient. This dilemma falls in line with Pascal’s Wager and the team takes a stance where this should be a concern or if we can feel comfortable dismissing this as a crazy conspiracy. Follow the episode as it delves into AI philosophy and the team takes rabbit hole after rabbit hole toward the reality that we live in. Will you take the Red Pill or the Blue Pill or should you just flush the pills and succumb to logic?
