To that end, I offer an Artificial Intelligence Manifesto, modeled of course on the Agile Manifesto.
We are developing computational models of cognition. Through this work we have come to value intelligence that
- bases its decisions on benefits and costs, rather than politics and religious dogma
- exposes the depths of its uncertainties, rather than saving face and scoring points over opponents
- continually learns from failure, rather cherry-picking the facts that fit its opinion
- takes its goals from the needs of modern society, rather than the distant needs of biological survival and domination
