Our brains are remarkable instruments. It has helped in understanding the evolution, in devising superior technology that facilitates effortless lifestyle, and at the same time, in creating weapons that could wipe out humanity. The most fascinating and unbelievable one is, it can process evidence even when unconscious.
Our intellect is capable of everything, but can it create intellect in a machine.
You can’t refute a computer’s ability to process reasoning and logic, but can it think?
The term, ‘Artificial Intelligence’ was first coined by John McCarthy in 1956.
With so many innovations going around, it is only a matter of time when artificial intelligence would be developed in its true form.
How will it decode the world around it that is so massive, complex, and inscrutable?
“The reality of such technology is so possible, the development of full artificial intelligence could spell ”, said theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, ramifications of that, in his words, could be, “the end of the human race”
Friendliness is something human beings are born with, AI’s will be born only with objectives
That was just one hypothetical situation that describes the problem-solving ability of artificially intelligent machines.
AI are only born with objectives and they estimate the result of an event based on the data it possesses at that particular moment.
We would be foolish to imagine that we had the means to control it
Once an artificial intelligence surpasses us, we would be basically a fool to think we could ever keep it under control. Still, we must endeavor to create a machine that will serve not supersede us.
Controlled outcomes work only when you set definite parameters for your program.
Hence, when designing artificial intelligence, we also need to design ways to restrain it, control it, or one day it will control us!
An automatic threat
A supercomputer that can think hundred thousand times faster than the smartest human is automatically a potential threat.
There is nothing such as good or evil; it is only a matter of perspective!
Hence, if an unbright artificial superintelligence (ASI) ever saw us as a threat, it could lead to the extinction of mankind
It could be hostile instead of friendly
A uninhibited ASI can get incredibly friendly or turn hostile in the blink of an eye.
What happened here is someone fiddled with your assistant and made changes in order to suffice ones’ evil needs. They used the AI to track every move of yours and used that knowledge to find the best time and place to target you.
Slightest sense of human-like compassion can enable the ASI to solve crimes, radicalism, global warming, poverty, or do exactly the opposite, create total chaos.
We are experiencing science from the perspective of lab rats currently. A horde of technology is awaiting to be discovered, developed. What shape it will take, only time can tell!
