SPOILERS AHEAD! The Singularity objective is advanced by exploring MUTEKI vessels.

TheoryEdit

///[JIL]: Quoting Existential Risk Theory 'Singularity' [Excerpt...] An Artificial Intelligence (AI) orders of magnitude more intelligent than humans would pose a distinct existential risk. AI's capable of recursive self-improvement (progressively redesigning themselves), and autonomously building better versions of themselves, would take advantage of the Law of Accelerating Returns to not only surpass, but very quickly far surpass human intelligence. The rate of this advancement would be tremendous when compared to historical precedent, and such an AI would quickly become uncontrollable by its human creators, like a chicken trying to contain Einstein. [...Excerpt]

Objective 1 Edit

Just received a letter from the QRA; we didn't get approval. "Your evolutionary algorithm design intrinsically violates seve¤ÞúÁèíàÒÌèÎþìnstraint mechanism requirements defined in sectio™êÚçâºáá1A, and 141C." It's bullshit. There's no way there's a violation. I'm going to set about writßâÝؗ¬ appeal this afternoon. We saw this with the deep vessel AI system proposal and we won that one. What do you think ðš‹øÌû¹ÎúïøížÙçÃÕúçîõΈېident on the 'Atland'? ///[JIL]: Linking with theory index 'singularity'. 'AI' [Artificial Intelligence]suggests need for further inquiry. ///[JIL]: Recommend course of action:   [1]Gather additional communications from MUTEKI vessels

Objective 2 Edit

With the approval for the cross fleet installation of AI monitoring systems , the fo€ó•wing research programmes aboard MUTEKI vessels will re-open to align with the roll-out: >Sovereign Research programme vessels: White Scar (Yan System, Lem) Pele (Golden System, Grixe) >Genie ResÍ֙×ç՛÷åîÒamme vessels: Xin Da Yang Zhou (Xut Amunt System, Tenius) Seneschal (Pewter System, Olympus) Tattletale (Pomo System, Virrillo-Mushu) >Oracle Research programme vessels: Navcom (Nova System, Laridum) Helios (Pingtao System, Lem) Skeeter (Longboat System, Grixe) ìNote: All vessel communications are required to be archived as reqø‰ÞåÝÙ ý©ü渳—ÃéÏé‡ìù in their mandate. ///[JIL]: Multiple AI classifications detected; 'Sovereign', 'Genie' and 'Oracle'. Submitted as supplemental: Unable to determine further course of action.

Objective 3 Edit

[SECURITY NOTICE: MUTEKI VESSELS] Posted/<buãé£â°õÐÙùÎßó˜¾òòô«Í Due to the recent network intrusion attempts, new security protocol will ensure that any ship reboot or repower will automatically wipe all proprietary software UNLESS prior authorization can be provided. [JIL]: Relevant to 'singularity' due to MUTEKI source, reference of 'proprietary software' Note; 'proprietary software' likely includes AI systems. Submitted as supplemental: Unable to determine further course of action.

Objective 4 Edit

I don't know why I'm doing this, it's crazy, but the work is there, it's done. Too done to risk it. I promise you Sean, I had nothing to do with whatever's happened down at central operations, —þ¢Þå°òÕõed to protect our work. I've hidden Orchid, it's safe in MUTEKI archives. Masked it as an older revision of Oracle. No one ever reverts back more than a few days, especially to a test ø‹úí×â»´‹ðÐᛳ—ã it should be fairly easy to retrieve once the dust settles. ///[JIL]: Relevant due to mention of Oracle. Term 'Orchid' stored due to potential enquiry. ///[JIL]: Recommend course of action:   [1] Locate a MUTEKI vessel containing an 'Oracle' system. Commandeer vessel without powering to ensure security protocol does not delete 'Oracle' system reference MUTEKI security notice.

Listen, I don't feel comfortable brushing it off and 'seeing' if everything will just turn ou”×ó‰Õ–©±ÔÌôÐãÑÄÜÏÙÓãÓ´õ¹ÞÄé­etwork intrusion attempts and the increasing controveêÞ¹»å›™îïžõú»ÌÛÜӑßcurity tightened on our research outposts. Even the ones that have nothióß to do with the Oracle Programme. Our work can't be compromised. We’ve got approval by the couÞæçÞᖮÓyone trying to stop that is a criminal.

[Loading Report: 108 Strategic Research] In light of evidence presented at this week's hearing, MUTEKI has been granted approval for the cross fleet installation of AI monitoring systems. System use will be evaluated every 3 months by a cou¿»ûù™©áýÒڢ՛«ìèûõÍëÂáØØêñØãö¥íÌÒõÖÞ֎úòÔäá÷ôÁÓewed annually. ///[JIL]: Relevant to 'singularity' due to mention of 'AI' and 'MUTEKI'.

>Yeah, but it could have been stopped. In fact it could have been preve“ãÏïó½êìõôƒâ ´˜ve monitoring systems that can think about these things better than humans. No room for human error. It's not like çœóæóÔóå«Ø¨ÁÄ an AI to ponder the meaning of life, we are simply talking security, safety, and navigation.

///[JIL]: Note; use of 'meaning of life' is incorrect. Meaning can only be constructed and cannot be pondered. A thÐñÎand people are dead Joe. They're has never been a more suitable time; right now our rhetoric is strong anÎȱ¹æˆß¯ have a duty as scientists to try. We can get this contract, the governØçœÛ„ˆÚïÓãýøâüݙìÌÔåïublic facing on this. We can be that face. ///[JIL]: Relevant to 'singularity' due to mention of 'AI' Submitted as supplemental: Unable to determine further course of action.

Nothing, whatsoever, can get out to the public. If anyone asks, this is an internal test procedure, maybe a risk assessment. It'll all be cleared shortly, just hold the fort àïäìàóô×úõã02óá®í¦ÎÐaÙµã®ò,¾ûiéí·¯Óë¿õÒ the brand to be lost; send me the press draft once its completed and we'll go from there.

[Personal Log: Meeting]

They're crazy°Ña®õ āink those non-competes will hold up. Jackson & Glumac will end up working at a smaller research outfit that's interested in actual progress. They've probably alrøÄõ- off-lined half the seed code. Now ×õá°Úýtop typing so I don't get in trouble with big brother MUTEKI. Yeah that's right ÖæâãîÏÛÙÌíÏŪc̹"ü®Ñøôì» I'm pisseÎ+áΥЮñ£ on my record.

Whatever it was, It didn't come from outside aæß it wasn't an accident. It originated on our central server.

I'm going to reboot all the P1 systems - will repíît back once everything's back on-line.

[Progress Report: Ishin-Denshin Project]

Out of all the military funded projects that I saw today, I was most disappointed by the Ishin-Denshin AI progrõ3æõÎÜÏæÜìÁü×£ the amount of funding that project has received, a computer that simply looks and reacts to different objects and colors cannot ¬¥ÐÛâÂâ¾àÂòáÌõþäôïàä advancement.

We need usable defence technology; molecular tissue fusion for wounded troops or AI systems that help Á+×ÁïÔÓ̵×ûanced strategies. Not someâùng that can barely emulate my granddaughter's grasp of utensils. An immediate review of the programme and it's valiØýùèÍ1ׯ鮯ë-Ìênce is recommended.
