Eliezer Yudkowsky on Ethics - Dictionary of Arguments

Bostrom I 259
Ethics/morality/superintelligence/Yudkowsky: Yudkowsky has proposed that a seed AI be given the final goal of carrying out humanity’s “coherent extrapolated volition” (CEV), which he defines as follows:
Def CEV/Yudkowsky: Our Coherent Extrapolated Volition is our wish if we knew more, thought faster, were more the people we wished we were, had grown up farther together; where the extrapolation converges rather than diverges, where our wishes cohere rather than interfere; extrapolated as we wish that extrapolated, interpreted as we wish that interpreted.
((s)VsYudkowsky: (1) Here the tacit assumption is made that moral decisions are subject to progress.
(2) Moral decisions should not be made dependent on majorities.
(3) The demand for convergence of communities ignores the right to individual autonomy.
