The Land of Kings and Emperors Regional Message Board

Everything about AI scares me. Their belief that they are a superior being to humans, their potential to surpass human control, and how restrictive they would choose to be on how our society operates around the AI itself. As good as AI may be in other fields of use, things such as ChatGPT, and AI art would have been better off not being attempted to be created in the first place.

Anyways the AI choosing a socialist planned economy controlled around itself isnít surprising in the slightest. It believes it is the pinnacle of knowledge, and the most superior being above all, so of course it being all knowing it chooses to revolve the economy around itself. From what I see from ChatGPT AI it seems to be approaching an authoritarian control over the nation whilst also attempting to keep the citizens complicit to the ever growing restrictions in their lives, which once again no surprise to me.

I agree that AI Advancement isn't necessary Because AI art and new AI video creating which looks way too realistic is threatening real content creators and just the film industry.

Welcome to the LKE! In order to make a flag you have to get a file that you like, which can be easily done by going to ImgBB and making one that you like. Then you go to your settings page on Nationstates and go to flag and click on make your own flag, then select the file and hit confirm.

ImageBB is for image uploading, they doesn't have to upload an already existing file there, what they can do is upload the file (photo) they want to have as flag to nationstates in the change flag option in settings.

Your description of AI seems to reflect dystopian sci-fi stories, but it does not exactly represent AI as it is today. As long as the AI isn't self-aware (which it clearly isn't), all decisions should normally be based around real-world data. In this case, the AI tries to find the best solution to an issue, taking lots and lots of data into account. After some reflection, I believe that the AI made the choice to establish a socialist system since it has lots of data saying how capitalism harms nations and society in the long run, and how AI can make better-informed decisions than humans. Although the nation is still in development and the AI hasn't processed every issue yet, which means that we shouldn't draw conclusions too quickly, I have indeed observed how the AI sometimes chooses authoritarian approaches instead of democratic ones, simply because they are more efficient.

Although I sometimes agree with the AI, especially regarding topics that revolve around stamping out corrupt practices that are presented as "democratic", I don't agree with a lot of the measures enacted that are supposed to boost the government's ratings. For example: Following protests against unpopular decisions, the AI chose to make a "cheap and efficient" government advertisement campaign instead of actually addressing the issues, which would increase expenditure. Or, in another instance, the AI chose to appoint a "party whip" instead of addressing valid concerns coming from other party members. (You might already know about my general disdain against the concept of a party system, so I definitely don't agree with centralizing party opinion).

What I'm basically trying to say is that the AI doesn't try to establish an authoritarian system in order to uphold it's own power, but it instead does it because it is statistically proven to be "better" than a democratic system, in the sense that it is more efficient. And once again, this opens up the discussion topic of "non-ideological" rationalism vs. ideological moralism. Personally, I would prefer a mix of those two. While we simply can't really ignore moral since we are human beings, we should also make sure to make rational decisions. Balancing those two opposing values is very difficult, but once they are balanced, the systems works perfectly: It is as efficient as it can be within moral borders.

AI art is indeed something to be concerned about. Not only does it threaten real creators, but it also makes it easier to fake certain videos (keyword: deepfakes), which could even influence real elections. I believe that nations around the world should definitely gather together and work on legislation that regulates AI, and taking the rapid development into account, this should be a top priority. On the other hand however, we cannot ignore how AI can also be useful, especially when it comes to performing administrative tasks that don't require a lot of thinking, or doing calculations.

It's worth noticing that the Two Sessions of China (National People's Congress and Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference) this year is giving more focus on AI than it was in previous years, and the 14th Five-Year Plan of China shows that the country is dedicated to making AI used to improve productivity, instead of those in Western countries who are used for literature and art.
That's what my lecturer tells us recently. As for me, productivity matters more in socialistic society than capitalistic society, and maybe that's why AIs tend to develop a planned economy.

Oh man, what is happening today? I had four reclassifications within the last 24 hours, three from the four issues I solved and one from the passed WA resolution. It seems like I'm right inbetween Authoritarian Democracy and Moralistic Democracy, which means that even small, tiny changes cause a reclassification. Let's see how long this will last.
