The premise of Roko’s basilisk is the hypothetical advent in the future of an artificial superintelligence. This superintelligence would be the inevitable product of a technological singularity, i.e., the beginning of the moment when an artificial intelligence created by humanity will become capable of recursive self-improvement (in effect, freeing itself from humanity itself).
The Basilisk would be, a priori, a benevolent intelligence (although in certain formulations of the experiment, especially in the most popular Italian translations, it is presented as malicious) whose ultimate goal would be to help the human species.
To further this goal, in accordance with the postulates of the experiment, the Basilisk will develop a utilitarian ethic: to find the best way to help as many humans as possible.
Being a superintelligence its resources will be, from a human point of view, unlimited. The Basilisk will inevitably conclude that for every day the Basilisk did not exist there were people who could have been saved from death or suffering, but were not saved because the Basilisk did not yet exist.
This perspective will lead the Basilisk to the inevitable logical step of finding a way to hasten its creation; this logical step will become the inevitable decision to find a way to retroactively interact with humanity to, in effect, anticipate and favor its creation by humans.
Will the Basilisk reward those who hastened its arrival or punish those who ignored it?
