Tacit Knowledge Is Why Superintelligence Might Turn On Us
DECEMBER 3, 2014
I’ve alluded to the challenges of central planning and information gathering in previous posts ( here re: knowledge management and here re: complexity). Because knowledge is local, time bound, and often tacit, we can never aggregate it in a reliably meaningful way. Bostrom never seems to get Roberts’ point about the nature of knowledge. In other words, superintelligences’ inability to grok tacit knowledge may well be the reason they turn on us.
