IT Conversations | Singularity Summit | Eliezer Yudkowsky (Free Podcast)
Yudkowsky differentiates three definitions of the singularity.
"Co-Founder & Research Fellow of the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence and one of the world's foremost researchers on Friendly AI and recursive self-improvement. He created the Friendly AI approach to AGI, which emphasizes the importance of the structure of an ethical optimization process and its supergoal, in contrast to the common trend of seeking the right fixed enumeration of ethical rules a moral agent should follow. In 2001, he published the first technical analysis of motivationally stable goal systems, with his book-length Creating Friendly AI: The Analysis and Design of Benevolent Goal Architectures. In 2002, he wrote "Levels of Organization in General Intelligence," a paper on the evolutionary psychology of human general intelligence, published in the edited volume Artificial General Intelligence (Springer, 2006)."

Gizmos Grabowski: Technology Suffers from Pragmatism
That's pragmatism, the philosophy of "it's morally right if it works." Problem is, that's not a rule on which to base technological advances. It's pragmatism that creates technology for survelliance systems, machines of torture, and biological weapons to

may 2005 by mshook - A "Don't Be Evil" lesson
Watching Google over the years, I've not seen a violation of this principle. Surely Google has huge power (see, for example, Jeff Jarvis' recent rant), but as long as it earns my trust in its use of that power, I'll remain a customer.
