A lab full of jerks

Be impossible and improve AI

One of the most difficult aspects of artificial intelligence is learning how to deal with people. The less rational and helpful the person, the harder it is to automate handling them. For now most AI's are being trained by interacting with regular people or even highly trained engineers. This fails to address the instances in which a robot will have to deal with a jerk.

I propose a lab in which robots attempt to convince unhelpful, unkind, uncaring humans to do things. There will be no progress at first, but it will provide a wealth of data that has not yet been attempted. And yes I volunteer.

       And guess what sort of AI comes out of that interaction ....

       We have an ISOFool. I wonder if we need a Worldwide Standardized Jerk.

       303 illegal command. Abort, Retry, Ignore?   

       Just saying that computers can be jerks too.

       What are these things and who is paying to have them done ?
