Our mission is to make sure the most advanced intelligence systems are created and controlled by a large number of good people that have no vested interest other than the safety of humanity. We are creating an online society of people of good will to guide and control the process of the safe and ethical artificial intelligence development.
Robotus has a democratic structure which provides for just governance and representation. The top layer of our governing structure is the society of Guardians. Connected in a network, Guardians discuss matters of AI development, decide by voting on important programs and topics, petition for discussion or voting on any subject, elect Councilors to represent them or fire them if necessary. All this is done from anywhere by accessing the incognito personal account in our online system.
The second layer is the Guardian Council. The Councilors are well known public figures, humanitarians, educators and philanthropists, who serve the Guardians. They moderate the discussion of the topics to translate the will of the public and provide immediate control and supervision of the activities of our organization. Councilors also perform their service by accessing their accounts from anywhere.
The third layer is the Board of Governors. The Governors are the stewards of the funds and controllers of the work on the ground. Governors run the organization under the surveillance of the Guardians and the Guardian Council. The job of the Board is to govern the hired staff in the development of our online system and A.I. foundation. In coming years, when our online system is robust, fully tested and serves our purposes, the functions of the Board will also be integrated into it and make its job location irrelevant.
The bottom layer of our organization is the staff. This is the workforce that is hired to do the job of developing a human-first version of A.I. This is our talented personnel that will bring to life this whole idea and support its existence.
Creating checks and balances is probably one of the hardest tasks we must carry out. How do we protect Robotus from human corruption? How do we make sure any person or group under the influence of a special interest doesn’t compromise the structure of our governance? How do we reveal and eliminate moles and traitors?
We are here to serve humanity. The purity of intentions should be in the core of our activities. Over the years we should develop a moral philosophy to become our guidance. Publicly recognized moral codes are more powerful than any law.
History shows that even the best systems of rules can become corrupt. Before we can create and protect our safe and ethical AI, we must develop a sustainable system of public control. We will use technologies like blockchain in our voting and decision-making engine. We will develop a floating access authorization to sensitive information. We will use multi-location servers for storing our dynamically stripped data. We will use existing technologies that allow for protection of the Guardians’ input, our staff’s data, and eradication of unwanted infiltration from outside operators.
Given that our system could become corrupted, especially by one of the most commonly used methods of influence, intimidation, we must provide a way to expose and remove it. Most people of good will are afraid of retaliation when they must go against a corrupt system. We will create a system of Guardian identity protection, where the participants’ identities are scrambled without affecting their equal access to contribute.
While we will let authenticated users share their thoughts with us, ultimate decisions will be discussed with registered Guardians only. We will arrange discussions about the structure of our organization and its public control, artificial intelligence advancement and its possible impact on humanity.
The best solutions are discovered in discussion. Each Councilor will have a discussion board. He or she will share their thoughts with Guardians and offer different topics for discussion. As servants of Guardians, in these discussions the Councilors will gain the validity of their decisions in the task of oversight.
The Guardians will have a capability to present their constructive ideas, promote solutions or organize public opinion. They will do this with dignity, in a polite and respectful manner. Since the idea of these discussions is to reveal the common opinion, even a slight participation is a giant contribution to our mission.
