If We Succeed | Since its inception, AI has operated within a standard model whereby systems are designed to optimize a fixed, known objective. This model has been increasingly successful. I briefly summarize the state of the art and its likely evolution over the next decade. Substantial breakthroughs leading to general-purpose AI are much harder to predict, but they will have an enormous impact on society. At the same time, the standard model will become progressively untenable in real-world applications because of the difficulty of specifying objectives completely and correctly. I propose a new model for AI development in which the machine’s uncertainty about the true objective leads to qualitatively new modes of behavior that are more robust, controllable, and deferential.

During the first half of 2020, Parvin, a young woman from Iran, entered Greece six times in an effort to claim asylum in the EU, only to be repeatedly pushed back to Turkey. The violence she was subjected to during her pushbacks is diverse in nature, spanning detention, torture and summary expulsions in the Evros/Meriç, apprehensions deep inside the Greek mainland, ‘drift-backs’ in the Aegean Sea, and extended periods of detention in quarantine camps in Turkey. Parvin was also an early witness to the violent events at the Kastanies/Pazarkule border fence in late February 2020, which would leave at least two dead, Muhammad al-Arab and Muhammad Gulzar, and several more injured. Parvin digitally recorded many of her crossing attempts via location sharing, video recordings, voice and chat messages, and photographs. We analysed this material in order to corroborate Parvin’s testimony and reconstruct her journey and experiences of ‘pushback’.

Quote by C.S. Lewis: “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
