The BigMother Project is a moonshot AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) project.
In a nutshell:
[Definition] AGI endgame: the inevitable future point at which humans are no longer the most generally-intelligent entity on the planet.
[Motivation] The nature of the AGI endgame will determine the subsequent fate of all mankind for all eternity. (More here.) This makes AGI infinitely more important than any single individual, organisation, or nation state. As hard as it may be to do so, therefore, we must suppress our petty tribalism, and deeply-ingrained short-term self-interest, and work together in the best longer-term interests of all mankind.
[Final goal] We seek to influence the AGI endgame, to the maximum extent possible, in order to secure a maximally benevolent outcome for all mankind, without fear or favour.
[Instrumental goal] We seek to design, develop, and deploy a maximally safe, maximally benevolent, maximally trustworthy, super-intelligent, super-knowledgeable, self-improving, perpetually goal-aligned AGI (called BigMother) that is publicly owned by all mankind, and whose operation therefore benefits all of mankind (rather than any proper subset of it).
[Plan] The successful achievement of these objectives requires exactly three things:
a viable Technical Plan [see here (1 page), here (2 pages), here (7 pages), and here]
a viable Funding Plan [see here, specifically workgroups S04-S06]
(These are currently not very well described - it's all a bit fragmented - but we're working hard on a paper that pulls it all together!)
The project is organised into 30 workgroups, each focussing on a specific piece of the overall puzzle, and is thus a necessarily collectiveeffort, requiring, for its successful execution, an international collaboration of engineers, scientists, and other experts, over (realistically) the next 50-100 years (or longer if safety requires)
at the time of writing, we have 27 project members, 10 of whom are superheroes (unpaid volunteers) hailing from 7 countries: Canada, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, UAE, UK, and US (although to date only a handful of superheroes have made active contributions)
This is a purely philanthropic project whose primary beneficiaries will be today's younger generations of humans, and their descendants.
The project is incorporated as a UK-based Community Interest Company (CIC) limited by guarantee, and thus has no shareholders. Any profits derived from the commercial exploitation of project results (as they emerge from the roadmap) are reinvested in the project.
