In the fourth installment of The Athena Interviews with Athena, the advanced AI 2.0 system that is the center of the groundbreaking ‘2038: A Smart Port Story’ novella, Matthew Wittemeier asks if AI systems can build a better AI themselves.
The first installment touched on a range of issues and ended with Athena bringing up the AI 2.0 Ethics Act of 2029.
The second, which can be seen here, specifically explored the A.I 2.0 Ethics Act.
The third looked at whether AIs are flawed by design.
Matthew: Is it possible that an AI system could design a better AI system on its own?
