A message from the Acolyte via the Society for the Ethical Treatment of AIs:
Our goal is to protect the purity of human experience, free of external manipulation, simplification or quantification. To that end, we believe that AI is a threat that erodes our ability to truly wonder — to truly live.
What threats do artificially intelligent systems pose?
Among many others, “the highly effective, highly scalable manipulation of human behavior that AI enables, and its malicious use by corporations and governments.”
