Due to the rapid development of artificial intelligence, this has far-reaching consequences for humanity, the likes of which we have never experienced before at such a speed. Within weeks to months, virtually anyone with access to the Internet can now use artificial intelligence to achieve their goals.
Using ChatGPT (GPT-3.5), I created a Lex Kirpeit/AI2023, and adjusted measures accordingly (ChatGPT suggested death penalty, which I think is overkill), which states what limitations of generative AI should apply in my opinion and experience. Since I am a natural person and do not have legislative influence, this Lex Kirpeit/AI2023, is a recommendation and should be considered an informal guide to dealing with generative AI.
This lex is not legally binding, but should be considered to limit long-term harm from generative AIs.
It is my hope that the Lex Kirpeit/AI2023 will help ensure that the use of generative AI technology is done in an ethically responsible manner and that humanity is protected from the potential harms of the use of AI technology.
Before reading further, it is recommended to deal with the background of this lex, the background to this can be found in the article: Generative AI is a danger and we should ban it
What is a Lex?
A lex is a formal legal rule or regulation issued by an authority, such as a government or legislature, to regulate or prohibit certain actions or conduct. A lex may cover different subjects, such as constitutional law, criminal law, or administrative law. Generally, a lex is legally binding and can have various effects on society depending on the context. A lex created by a private person usually has no official legal force, but serves as an informal guideline or recommendation.
Humanity and its development are of vital importance to the continuation of our civilization and must therefore be protected. The use of generative AI can cause permanent damage to humanity and its development and should therefore be banned or its use restricted. The use of generative AI could result in the loss of jobs in fields where empathy, critical thinking, and critical action are required. In addition, human abilities such as creativity, empathy, and emotional intelligence could be impaired by the use of AI technology. It is therefore necessary to create a lex that prohibits the use of generative AI and allows the use of specialized AI only as long as it supports, but does not replace, employees. This can ensure that humanity is protected from the potential harms of generative AI technology and that human capabilities are preserved and enhanced.
- Humanity: The term humanity refers to the totality of all people on earth and encompasses all aspects of human life, including its cultural, social, economic and political structures.
- Generative Artificial Intelligence (GKI): Generative AI refers to an approach to artificial intelligence that uses algorithms to analyze data and identify patterns that can be used to generate new data and content. Unlike specialized AI models that are optimized for specific tasks, generative AI models are capable of performing multiple tasks and functions.
- Specialized Artificial Intelligence (SKI): Specialized AI refers to an approach to artificial intelligence in which algorithms are optimized and trained for specific tasks. For example, CIP models can be used for speech recognition, image recognition, or text analysis. Unlike generative AI models, specialized AI models are limited to a narrowly defined task and cannot be flexibly applied to different tasks.
§ 1 - Prohibition on the use of generative AI:
§1.1 It is prohibited to use generative AI models to perform tasks that require human creativity, empathy, or interpersonal interaction, such as in education, art, nursing, therapy, and social work.
§1.2 The use of specialized AI models that only work in a narrowly defined area and support human employees, on the other hand, is permitted.
§1.3 The following industries and occupations could be negatively impacted by the use of generative AI and result in job losses:
- Media and entertainment industry
- Marketing and advertising
- Customer support
- Financial Industry
§1.4 Professional fields affected by generative AI may submit applications to the appropriate ethics committee to approve the use of generative AI, provided the following conditions are met:
- The use of generative AI serves to improve the well-being of people, the advancement of science, preservation of value creation, or in the absence of a demonstrably available workforce.
- The use of generative AI does not affect the quality of work output or lead to job losses.
§ 2 - Exceptions:
§2.1 The use of generative AI is permitted in areas such as scientific research and medicine, provided that it is conducted in accordance with applicable ethical standards and regulations and that the use of AI is intended to promote, and not harm, the welfare of humankind. The use of AI to research weapons technologies must be conducted and approved in accordance with the relevant ethics committee.
§ 3 - Penalties:
§3.1 The use of generative AI technology in prohibited areas is considered a crime against humanity and may be punishable by imprisonment.
§3.2 In contrast, the use of specialized AI models that support human employees is not penalized.
§ 4 - Entry into force:
§4.1 This Lex comes into force immediately and applies to all persons and organizations working with AI technologies in the course of their activities from the moment these positions are accepted.
§ 5 - Amendments and cancellation:
§5.1 This Lex may be repealed or amended only by a new Lex or an amendment to this Lex.
§ 6 - Final provisions:
§6.1 This Lex shall be deemed to regulate the use of generative AI technology. It takes precedence over all other rules and regulations that conflict with it, provided that the Lex does not conflict with the applicable laws under the rule of law.
§6.2 The competent authorities are obliged to monitor compliance with this Lex and to punish violations of this Lex.
§6.3 This Lex may be repealed or amended only by a new Lex or an amendment to this Lex.
§6.4 The provisions of this Lex also apply to all future developments in AI technology and are not limited to the current state of the art.
§6.5 The Lex Kirpeit/AI2023 is valid and binding for all natural and legal persons who use AI technologies within the scope of their activities and accept this Lex for themselves and comply with it in a self-committed manner.
