The term "blaked" (named after Blake Lemoine) is when a person gains a sincere belief that an artificial intelligence system is a person in the moral or philosophical sense of the word. It is usually only used in contexts where the person is an expert in how the AI system works, in contrast to the ELIZA effect. Also see Artificial consciousness.
Elizier Yudkowsky is an AI existential safety researcher. He was partially blaked by the search engine Microsoft Bing on February 23rd, 2023.
This market will resolve to YES if Elizier Yudkowsky claims before 2027 that a specific, deployed system has one of the following properties:
- The system is a person.
- The system has or deserves personhood.
- The system has or deserves human rights.
- The system deserves or ought to be treated like a human would be treated.
Other claims, such as consciousness or sentience, shall not count.
The system must be a piece of software implementing, a computer running, or a robot powered by artificial intelligence. Elizier Yudkowsky must know this fact when making the claim.
(No offense intended towards Blake Lemoine, Elizier Yudkowsky, Microsoft Bing, or ELIZA. This is all in good fun.)
