Singularity will eventually destroy the human race.
Debate Rounds (2)
Here are the possible outcomes that come out from singularity (also my arguments):
1.In order for singularity to happen of course it would require us to create AIs that can become autonomous. In the best case scenario, supported by Ray Kurzweil, all humans will share the benefits of the intelligence explosion by being connected to the ASI through neural implants. There won't be an ASI and us, but a single harmonious entity. The intelligence explosion will continue indefinitely, and eventually spread to all the universe with human-machines. Like I said in the definitions destroy can also mean to change the human race completely into something else. Also what would happen if a virus comes and spreads through these AIs? Wouldn't that mean that the human race is screwed because we are linked to them and we have the possibility to be taken And even the best case scenario supports this what can the worse case scenario possibly be?
2. One of the worse case scenario is that we create AIs that are autonomous with positive feelings. Obviously, we would want an AI with positive feelings only such as being compassionate. Well the thing is that the risk is that creating one positive feeling necessarily implies creating its opposite too. The laws of the universe want that things exist in duality. Heat cannot exist without cold. Light cannot exist without darkness. Also there is the possibility that a bug can happen and it will allow these AIs to perform the opposite of what they were created for.
