Gaming the Future: Technologies for Intelligent Voluntary Cooperation
Opportunities for bright futures enabled by bio, nano, and computing technologies are now within our reach. Their proliferation also comes with risks and authoritarian attempts at control. We explore how technologies of intelligent voluntary cooperation can help us navigate the traps. Cryptocommerce enables decentralized, secure cooperation across humans – and AIs. This unlocks Paretotropian futures of high technology in which valuing entities can pursue their highest function through iterative play.
This episode is a discussion on chapter 9 of the book: WELCOME NEW PLAYERS | Artificial Intelligences
Voluntary cooperation is a main feature of the civilizational game. It got us to where we are today. We explored how to improve and defend this dynamic from within the game. Gradually, non-human intelligent players are entering the playing field. In a few more iterations, they will be major players. If we want to continue our Paretotropian ascent, we better make sure our cooperative framework is set up to handle a diversity of intelligences pursuing a diversity of goals.
