FAQ: Why didn't organization X get an award?

All the other organizations (Future of Life Institute (FLI), Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI), the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI) and so on) are WRONG!
They basically say that we SHOULD do AI, but do it RIGHT. But you cannot control a super intelligence, this is explained thoroughly in my projects.
Amazingly, "neo-luddism" is the ONLY organization that says this simple conclusion in no uncertain terms: STOP BUILDING ANY KIND OF AI !!!

#IfOtherCrimesWereTreatedLikeAI




I wonder why Google doesn't like this website...?




Site's name slogan & logo


It's no coincidence that the original Luddites' rebellion was against the "Jacquard Loom". That machine was practically the first computer ever built. It even had software (chain of punched cards) and a keyboard (punch for Jacquard cards).
That was the first time that a machine replaced not the muscle power of man but his brain power, took away man's livelihood, and turned man redundant.

Today the enemy of the Neo-Luddites is the self-replicating technology (artificial intelligence, nano technology, genetic engineering), as described in "Why The Future Doesn't Need Us" by Bill Joy.

Our logo is the raised fist of rebellion holding a sledgehammer from the 19th century ready to break the self-replicating machine (notice that the cog-wheel has an offspring inside it) of the 21st century. (small, medium, big).
