General AI isn’t required to have the Robot Kegger problem, only Retailers who, say, share the sentiment behind Citizens United, at which point you have Robot Keggers in all of the targeted Principals’ houses 24/7. The application of the hidden shared oppositional incentive causes the trouble, not the implementation details of that application.
Corporations don’t have shame, but one would expect them to respond to the threatened cost of exposure of their intentions and re-establishing their cloak over same.
Because our legislative agents have been Retailed I don’t hold much hope for a legal solution unless the incentive balance can be changed by mass action, such as mass returns, noisy word-of-mouth, etc. which would be immediate, higher intensity and beyond attenuation by stalling in the legislative process anyway.
Haven’t had a chance to look at it, but hopefully your book “Designing Agentive Technology” will heighten the sensitivity of the reading public to the P-A-R dynamic *and* encourage an abiding long term interest in acting collectively against it. We’re going to have this issue for a long time, looks like.
