分集大纲,高频决策的伦理考量

尤瓦尔·赫拉利在《未来简史》中预言,数据将统治一切,人作为个体的价值将不复存在。科技与人文之间的张力我们直觉就可以感受到。绝不含糊地说,这部剧集中Harold是我最佩服的角色,因为他最突出的两点——独创性及道德观(智性和德性),正是我最看重的,也是我毕生的追求。Harold造神,但他是人。实际上,任何领域的独创性都让我叹服。在这里我更想讨论Harold的道德观。为此,我们需要在不同的坐标中梳理一下Harold的道德抉择。
the Machine vs. Smartisan S3E22中Decima头目Greer与Harold
对话:Harold表示自己被当作AI之父是意外的副作用。他对AI的诞生持悲观态度,因为自己不能控制其进化。对此Greer的态度非常明显——Uncertainty.
Your personal abyss.
关于机器的建成,Greer一度认为是出于创造力而非利他主义。对此Harold承认,他的确感受到创造的力量,而同时也一直声明他建造机器是为了拯救生命。以S3E20结尾他不杀议员的抉择作例证,再合适不过。盾与剑,这也正是the
Machine与Smartisan最大的区别。 Since we started this, things have
changed. We’ve changed. But the mission, our purpose, has always been
constant– to save lives. If that’s changed somehow, if we’re in a place
now where the machine is asking us to commit murder… That’s a place I
can’t go. I’m afraid this is where I get off. Vigilance vs. the
Government
S3E19中Vigilance头目Collier与Harold同样也有一番对话,Harold坦言,他们可能难以相信,自己同意Vigilance的诉求,只是不赞成他们的暴力手段。在S3E23的审判中,我实在为Harold的勇气所折服,他与Collier激烈争辩:从建造机器的第一天起,他就在担心它可能造成的危害,他对自己的作品感到不安,始终不敢说自己做这件事是否正确。如此强烈的道德感甚至可以用珍贵来形容。Nothing
wrong with a dictatorship, so long as you’re the dictator.
这恐怕是Collier能够给Harold的最高敬意。Harold承担责任的勇气和为此付出的一切,S3E21中他将被交给Decima时展露无遗。
From the day the machine went online, part of me knew that I would never
be able to sever myself from it… And that anyone I ever cared about
was in danger. It was foolish to imagine otherwise. I tried to guard
myself, stay hidden, from the government, the authorities, people
looking. Here we still are. This moment was inevitable. This moment was
always looking for me. I have to accept it. Carter & Reese
Carter的意外死亡给Reese带来沉重的打击,他开始怀疑,怀疑机器存在的意义,怀疑救人的意义。他堕入虚无的深渊,或许救与不救没有区别,人总有一死,不过早晚。而此时Harold了解这些,也同样悲痛。剧情至此提出一个相当艰难的问题——如何与不可避免的结局抗争。在Harold与重整旗鼓的团队身上,我仿佛看到加缪《鼠疫》中的里厄医生,这奋力的反抗分明是人道主义之光。
The machine only gives us numbers, because I would always rather that a
human element remain in determining something so critical as someone’s
fate. We have free will. And with that comes great responsibility and
sometimes great loss. I miss her dearly too.
然而我们不可避免一个问题,坚守这样的道德观,其意义何在。其实Harold的道德观相当精英主义,真正的精英主义。也难怪S4E01中安排Harold为客座教授时,他所教授的课题是the
ethics of high-frequency decision making
对高频决策的伦理考量。这正是Harold日夜面对的难题,也是唯Harold才有资格讲授的课题。可是面对空荡的教室,Harold与他的课题究竟该何去何从?

You are being watched.
The government has a secret system,a machine that spies on you every
hour of every day.
I designed the machine to detect acts of terror but it sees
everything,violent crimes involving ordinary people.
The government considered these people irrelevant.
We don’t.Hunted by the authorities,we work in secret.
You’ll never find us.But victim or perpetrator,if your number’s up,we’ll
find you.

21、Grace,there’s somrthing you should know about me.
    There’s nothing you can say that will make me run away.
    If we let him walk out that door,Decima wins.Samaritan will go

22、I like your plane,Frankie.–He put it together himself.(Vigilance
Collier)
    向第三方私人公司,提供政府授权监控,然后第三方再把信息出售给政府…政府得到的好处仅仅是责任推诿…这是脑子进水了吧?
    这集没什么具体内容(The
control–政府要员、Finch、Greer-Samaritan)…被Vigilance绑架…
    好奇Vigilance的信息来源,这种有预谋的大规模恐怖行为,the
machine居然没有示警…Vigilance可以靠短信找出Greer的位置,The
machine也找不出…
    这集把我的好感快耗完了…
    The
machine的延伸度?一方面它让root救人以备后续,一方面它对眼前的危险似乎看不透彻?

23、Two hours have passed since the city of New York plunged into
darkness.
    Authorities have not yet ruled out the possibility of a terrorist
attack.
