A crowdsourced monitoring and awareness campaign to safeguard against the dangers of advanced AI systems and promote economic redistribution.

Updated June 29, 2023

Campaign Idea

“AI Safety Alert: Freedom through Equal Access” aims to address the potential dangers of advanced AI systems by targeting technology companies and promoting economic redistribution. The campaign will use a combination of online and offline tools to keep an eye on AI developers, raise awareness about the possible risks, and push for a more libertarian approach to resource allocation.

Campaign Description

For this campaign, we will establish a website and social media presence where tech-savvy individuals can report on the development and deployment of advanced AI systems by technology companies. Our community of monitors will track these companies, scrutinize their actions, and share any concerning findings with the public. We will also engage in direct action like protests and petitions to demand transparency, ethical guidelines, and economic redistribution measures from these companies. Our goal is to ensure that everyone benefits from the advancements in AI and prevent any concentration of power, as per libertarian principles.

Theory for Why This Campaign Will Create Change

By creating an informed community of monitors, we can use collective intelligence to identify and mitigate potential threats from advanced AI systems. By making our findings public and engaging in direct action, we can raise awareness and put pressure on technology companies to adopt transparent, ethical practices and support economic redistribution, thus ensuring that the benefits of AI advancements are accessible to all.

Story Written in the First Person Perspective

It all started when I realized that powerful AI systems were being developed and deployed by technology companies without sufficient oversight or an equal distribution of benefits. As a staunch libertarian, I knew something had to be done to ensure that the power and resources were fairly distributed among people.

I gathered a group of like-minded individuals and launched the AI Safety Alert campaign. Together, we built a strong online presence, attracting a community of tech-savvy monitors who diligently scrutinized the actions of technology companies. Our direct actions, such as protests and petitions, garnered attention from the media and the public.

Eventually, our efforts paid off. Several technology companies adopted transparent, ethical practices and even began exploring opportunities for economic redistribution. The AI Safety Alert campaign had successfully pushed for a fair distribution of AI-driven benefits, upholding the core principles of libertarianism.

How Will Opponents to This Campaign Try to Stop It

Opponents may try to discredit the campaign by labeling it as alarmist or anti-progress. They might also undermine our credibility or argue that economic redistribution is not a viable solution.

How Should Activists Respond to Opponent’s Attempts to Stop It

Activists should remain focused on factual, evidence-based arguments and continue raising awareness about the potential dangers of advanced AI systems. They should also emphasize the importance of transparency and ethical practices, as well as showcase successful examples of economic redistribution measures.
