Why Badly Trained AI Is a Bigger Threat Than a Robot Uprising

At the present level of AI development, humanity doesn’t have to worry about a machine uprising just yet. However, the use of improperly trained AIs in important fields and attempts to use it to exercise control over people’s lives may pose a real threat in the near future. This was the topic of a seminar on ‘The Unexpected Threats of AI’ recently hosted by the HSE University Laboratory of Transcendental Philosophy.

Svetlana Klimova’s article «Mikhail Lifshits’ logomythy: “the art of discrimination”» in “Studies in East European Thought”, 2016

The article reconstructs an original concept of myth developed by Mikhail Lifshits. He invented the term “logomythia”, as the “art of discrimination”, to show the ambivalent nature of creative work, where archaic myth dies as a historical nonsense and resurrects as a human meaning. Logomythia demonstrates the overcoming of the irrational element in the life of societies by linking it to the rational or meaningful content of artistic images. And, on the other hand, the concept contains more than a hint of the crisis of rationalism in the twentieth century which destroyed the harmony of man with nature.
