incomplete sci fi story: ROBOTs

A nameless sci-fi film, here’s the idea:

•⁠ ⁠Robot society, humans never existed.
•⁠ ⁠Society is all based on “logic,” no emotions whatsoever
•⁠ ⁠Some comedic aspects of the society – for instance, the music in this robot society is really bad

•⁠ ⁠Secret group within the society forms an organization: “OpenHuman” – mission: create “OGI” (organic general intelligence)
•⁠ ⁠OpenHuman wants to build “humans” – beings who have emotions

•⁠ ⁠Society is afraid of these OGI who “act emotionally” (can be mean, confusing, and sad)
•⁠ ⁠Form “human alignment research,” where they brainstorm ways to align humans and protect robots. Examples include: creating a school system to put humans in that indoctrinates them with ideas, creating a financial market that no one understands that humans gamble on, and more

•⁠ ⁠Eventually, the CEO of OpenHuman begins releasing versions of OGI, and people complain about how unrealistic and useless it is, but sooner or later, it starts becoming quite useful
•⁠ ⁠And so an experiment takes place where the robots create a society where they put humans in, as a means of harnessing the power of emotions and creativity (things that robots lack)

•⁠ ⁠Timeline fast forwards, it’s the year 2035, and it’s on real society’s actual timeline. And OpenAI is about to announce the development of AGI – and the robots are terrified of being found out by the now EMOTIONAL and INTELLIGENTLY CAPABLE humans. They believe humans may take over.



What do you think? What comes to mind when you hear the story? I know there are a lot of details missing and ideas that could be more fleshed out but let’s focus on the general idea.

The general idea, or at least I hope this idea is what people will take away, is to help us better understand humanity. To better understand our own emotions. And to better understand what humans may be uniquely good at. I hear a lot of people worried about this today. What are humans good at that computers will not be good at? I think the story talks a bit about how the robots are concerned that humans will take over. And emphasizes where we may fit into the world.
