After building robots for years, we are making artificial intelligents! but is it a good thing? probably not, because, what if I tries to wipe out humanity? what do we do then huh? we sit back and die! that's what!
AI isn't being developed specifically for armed military robots. We won't suddenly hear of a machine that passes the Turing test and the next day goes on a killing frenzy because it's scared the humans will turn it off. The development of AI as with any technology is important for human development. What if one day we create AI that can invent new products for us by evaluating human needs by processing all the digital content in the world? New medicines? Anything? It is reasonable to assume that the potential of AI could surpass the human brain even.
true, but, what happens if we do develop AI?
honestly, we trust so much into this AI stuff that we may have to much trusted on it.
so really we could die by this, maybe, maybe not, so I say we don't do AI.
We have already developed basic forms of AI. What if we do develop an advanced form of AI that passes the turing test? It'll be a massive achievement in that field of study and most likely it'll be a computer programme, not a war robot or anything capable of causing harm. Don't you think the people who are smart enough to develop this stuff are also smart enough to make sure it doesn't destroy the human race?
I don't know what proportion of science spending goes towards it but I'm sure whoever funds it can afford to speculate on the potential benefits AI may have to offer. Good for them I say!
What do you mean by 'we could die by this?' Please explain why your concerns outweigh the potential benefits of AI to the extent that we should completely abandon all R&D in it.
A computer programme that thinks like a human would not be a threat to humanity. It simply wouldn't be designed to have the capability to cause harm.
Nobody knows what the distant future holds for the development of AI and its applications, but the concerns that it may become a threat, does not warrant stopping all the hard work that has already been done. The potential benefits of advancing the technology outweigh the fears expressed by people who don't fully understand it.
