Artificial intelligence is present in world, imagine what the world will be like in one hundred years. There are two examples that show that artificial life is dangerous, Frankenstein and Blade Runner.. The book Frankenstein is about a doctor who brings a creates a monster and then brings it back to life. The movie Blade Runner is about a man hunting down Replicants. These two examples are so different but they have the same point.
Nick Bostrom, a philosopher and the University of Oxford, states, “...superintelligence could emerge, and while it could be great [...] it could also decide it doesn’t need humans around,” (qtd. in Ford). This philosopher, like many other technology critics, can see the effects that artificial intelligence may have on our future, yet there is always the select group of people who cannot foresee the consequences of their actions. For example, Victor Frankenstein is introduced to science at a young age and when he went to college at Ingolstadt he met Professor Waldman, whom shared a similar scientific interest.
The developing knowledge of artificial intelligence is becoming a fear for scientists around the world because of the power it now holds. Stephen Hawking exclaims how technology will one day surpass human knowledge, “I believe there is no deep difference between what can be achieved by a biological brain and what can be achieved by a computer. It therefore follows that computers can, in theory, emulate human intelligence, and exceed it (Mialet).” As artificial knowledge perpetually grows, it harnesses the power to potentially destroy the human race by means of lethal autonomous intelligence.
People all over the world should remember the Go match between Lee Se-dol and AlphaGo. The Lee Se-dol and AlphaGo matches brought about an issue of artificial intelligence. Most people expected that Lee Se-dol could win the match, but AlphaGo won four times out of five over the previous Go champion, Lee Se-dol. In addition, AlphaGo beat Ke Jie, who is the number one Go game player in China without handicap. People need to know there was no advantages for the match; Lee won only one match on the fourth attempt against AlphaGo out of five matches. What if a computer did not make a mistake on Go games? Nobody can expect the results. The development of technology such as artificial intelligence, robots, and the smartphone can make our society convenient,
The US has discussed AI issues with Japan, Korea, Germany, Poland, UK, and Italy. The issue of AI is also being discussed in the UN the G-7 and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. (Source 7). During these meeting it was recommended that the US government should develop a government-wide strategy on international engagement related to AI and should have strategies to account for the influence of AI on cybersecurity. Artificial intelligence in weaponry also raises the concern of “meaningful human control” in life or death situations. This could take the humanity out of fighting, if soldiers no longer have to face the people they may have to kill, who is to say they won’t shoot anyone they suspect of doing something unsavory. This is just a concern that should be addressed when deploying artificially intelligent machines to act in place of an army. On a different note, the use of AI may be able to predict attacks prior to them even occurring. An AI monitoring tool called iAWACS, or internet airborne warning and control system, is able to comb through tweet and images and predict the general mood of digital conversation (Fung). This can be helpful in preventing attacks or riots in an area. However, there is always the concern of cybersecurity and chances of hacking that would provide false information to lead the monitors off the trail of the
Society today is greatly influenced by technology and the impact it has had within the past 20 years. One of the largest breakthroughs, though, is Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). The technology associated with A.I. has greatly developed in the past years, and is only making devices smarter. When someone mentions technology, or even the technological breakthroughs the world has gone through recently, many people go straight to smartphones and computers. A.I. is often overlooked, or put into a general category of "technology". Yet, artificial intelligence is something that should we not be so quick to dismiss, and should be something that gets people talking and even excited for what the future holds.
One example of this is when the stock market index had a quick, but massive crash, losing nearly one trillion dollars, which is “a prime example of the dangers of Artificial Intelligence manipulating stock” (Loubriel). Although human stockbrokers managed to shut down the system and prevent a complete economical crash, once superintelligence is achieved, there will be no way to terminate any AI processes. As soon as self-driving cars exceed the point of human intelligence, people will be completely under the control of their vehicle and will no longer be able to make decisions while driving. In addition, Nick Bostrom, a philosopher at the University of Oxford declared that “[humans] should not be confident in [their] ability to keep a superintelligent genie locked up in its bottle forever” (Bostrom). He emphasized the idea that once superintelligence takes over every piece of technology, it is competent enough to break out of the secure environment that has been created for it. Until self-driving cars are below the standards of being super intelligent, humans are still dominating every vehicle’s decisions. The consequences could be disastrous if they go out of control. Furthermore, physicist Louis Del Monte recently discovered that “[robots] are also learning
Overall, the idea that Artificial Intelligence could soon become better than humans through invention, innovation and improvement brings fear into our world. The preconception that technology will take over the world rendering humans powerless is the basis for why humans, including myself, are afraid of the movie, Ex Machina.
Famous visionaries such as Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking share that belief as well. Bill Gates once stated that “First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent… A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern.” Stephen Hawking’s has as a similar concern. He said that “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell out the end of the human race.” Both of their quotes are implying that artificial intelligence will help us out greatly but in the end it will kill us. Artificial intelligence isn’t built because we should but because we can. These famous visionaries have come to agree that AI will soon be the end of human
Writers Vernor Vinge and Ray Kurzweil have written about a historical event that will occur with artificial intelligence (AI) technology, where we create a new form of intelligent life. This new AI will make us question our existence and what it means to be “human”, a point of no return for technological history. Kurzweil focused on AI development and the fusion between computers and humans, and while this may sound improbable, we have seen the impacts already: Google’s DeepMind, IBM’s Watson, changes in technology for transportation (self-driving cars, car share services/taxis), medicine (Google’s verily, deep learning algorithms for medical diagnosis), the financial sector (bitcoin/digital currency trading, ‘robot advisors’), consumer sales
Artificial intelligence, or AI for short, is “the intelligence exhibited by machines or software.” AI is found in many forms in our society, from video games to traffic predictions to the autocorrect in our phones. When machine personalities are no longer distinguishable from human ones, however, there will be implications for humanity. This advancement will at first be met with skepticism, and the first people to interact with these AI will not consider them sentient beings. Artificial intelligence will eventually be complex enough to exhibit human-like personality, and it is at this point that we will embrace machines, and redefine selfhood to include artificial beings. Once we consider AI sentient, they will rapidly advance until they are
Artificial intelligence has become a big controversy between scientists within the past few years. Will artificial intelligence improve our communities in ways we humans can’t, or will they just cause danger to us? I believe that artificial intelligence will only bring harm to our communities. There are multiple reasons why artificial intelligence will bring danger to humanity, some of them being: you can’t trust them, they will lead to more unemployment, and they will cause more obesity.
We know that robot could also be dangerous for humanity. For example, they may power the autonomous weapons. The autonomous weapons is that killer robot that could pose a threat to all of us, it could hunt and kill without further human involvement. According to the research by Max Erik, an MIT physics professor, artificial intelligence could have benefits things that could help people in some ways, but at the same time, it has dangerous and negative effects that could hurt people. In his article titled ” Benefits & Risks of Artificial Intelligence,” he writes, “Autonomous weapons are artificial intelligence systems that are programmed to kill. In the hands of the wrong person, these weapons could easily cause mass casualties. Moreover, an AI arms race could inadvertently lead to an AI war that also results in mass casualties.” Here, Erik emphasis that artificial intelligence might be programmed to do something devastating that hurt people’s life and increase the violence. Also, we know that the autonomous weapon can take people's lives away if it is controlled by wrong people who want to spread hate and killing people. In addition, we know that in our society now there are a lot of people who spread violence among others and if they use this artificial intelligence which is the autonomous weapons that might be dangerous for our
Artificial Intelligence is a topic within the public media that has existed for decades, but is now a concern due to the reality of human advancement and innovation in the field of science and technology. Many people believe that computers will become self-aware or sentient and view humanity as a disposable resource and gain supremacy. Reasoning that research on the technology should halt and not become more advance. Whereas others believe they will help catapult research and the economy forward, supporting the operations and innovations the technology offers. The complicated and divided solutions to the debate aren’t obvious, but there are more benefits to improving artificial intelligence than there is stopping it. Therefore, the negative effects people believe will occur can be resolved.
Artificial intelligence is an expert system in which exhibits machines that are programmed by humans and acts under the authority of its creator. Such systems and programs range in various shapes and sizes while conducting various methods of exercises as to how or what the machine was taught to do to assist humans in various fields including the military, automation, as well as a maid working in a household (Stuart & Norvig). The mere progression of artificial intelligence doesn’t only follow orders given by the human in which created it, but also learns how to reason on its own.
