  • AI helps disabled people live a better life.

    Many disabled people can use AI to improve there day to day lives. AI could allow them the chance to live better lives. AI could help them cook, eat, get dressed, shower, drive, work, and function better. They would not need someone to look out for them, as they could take care of themselves through the help of AI. This is just like Nike's self lacing shoes. In Casey Neistat's video, Nike sent him a pair of these, and he sent them to a teacher who could barely function with his hands, not being able to tie his shoes. This pursuit of technology allowed this man to improve his quality of life.

  • Android AI-assistant - interaction between you and phone

    Unlike Google Now, Okay Google command turned out to be more useful:
    The AI-based assistant is able to converse with the user, clarify necessary information, and act as a smart chatbot.
    The bot is able to recognize even complicated commands. As developers promise, this function will be improved in the course of time.
    Besides, the virtual assistant allows you to switch off the light in your home through Google Home, book a table in a restaurant etc. (Take from https://www.cleveroad.com/blog/latest-trends-in-android-application-development-in-2017)

  • Refusing the development of AI would be innovative ignorant

    Although some ethical issues arise when thinking about future artificial intelligence, the pros do outweigh the cons. The expansiveness of Computer Science in the past 20 years have been completely remarkable. Honda's ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) robot is capable of learning tasks rather than having prior knowledge of them, such as riding a bike. Creating true AI would be a technological gold nugget and open up new possibilities that were before considered impossible. Many fear that labor industries will be taken over by robots that can do the same job better and work for free. There are two reasons why this would not happen: 1) If all workers are AI's, then the vast majority of humans are out of work and therefore have no stable income, leading to a wealthy oligarchy of people that will act as heads of government. Revolt is inevitable. 2) The programmers of the first powerful AI would not want to let their creation take part in the worker scenario just stated, but rather to expand human knowledge of unknown subjects. Many diseases could be cured, new facts about the universe could be discovered. Fears about AI could easily be stifled if we were just to give the artificial intelligent beings rights, and not treat them as slaves purely used for human desire. If this is done, the possibilities for future AI is limitless.

  • Yes we should pursue the development of AI

    The hour that we successfully achieve the development of actual legitimate artificial intelligence, will be the moment in modern history that will mark the dawning of a new era. The vast array of near infinite capabilities of applications for artificial intelligence should motivate this quest even further. We should not be afraid of hollywood renditions of artificial intelligence conspiracies; they are fiction. As long as proper precautionary inhibitors are enforced around the machine, this will work.

  • Smart AI is the logical next step in computer evolution

    There would definitely be new ethics and personhood arguments to be played out, if we do ever develop a truly autonomous artificial intelligence. With the way we have advanced computer science from a string of 1's and 0's less than a century ago, into purchasing a touch screen tablet on Amazon for under half a benjamin, Smart AI is the logical next step. There are so many tasks that an autonomous AI could accomplish that a human cannot. As long as we treat them fairly, and more like children than tools and protect their appropriate rights. It will also be up to very clever programmers and human relations experts to build a compassionate AI that won't turn into Skynet and preceive humans as a threat.

  • Do we really need another sentient being to live with? Is it really worth it?

    Now, I agree that AI helps us build advanced society and ease our pain of repeating the same work over and over again by robotic automation.

    But, we should also note that a true AI, like the ones we see in Sci-Fi genres, is an independent being. Independent beings have different perspective of things. One day, robots could rebel against us, just like Terminator's Skynet or Overwatch's Omnic.

    Take a look at Wikipedia's definition of the singularity. It's pretty scary.

    Wikipedia: The technological singularity (also, simply, the singularity)[1] is the hypothesis that the invention of artificial superintelligence will abruptly trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization.[2] According to this hypothesis, an upgradable intelligent agent (such as a computer running software-based artificial general intelligence) would enter a 'runaway reaction' of self-improvement cycles, with each new and more intelligent generation appearing more and more rapidly, causing an intelligence explosion and resulting in a powerful superintelligence that would, qualitatively, far surpass all human intelligence.



    Even Elon Musk, a venture capitalist who founded SpaceX and Tesla, warned us of the rise of AI. He once said this on TheGuardian's interview:

    “I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I had to guess at what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So we need to be very careful,” said Musk. “I’m increasingly inclined to think that there should be some regulatory oversight, maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish.”

    “With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon. In all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it’s like – yeah, he’s sure he can control the demon. Doesn’t work out,” said Musk.

    Here is the link: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/oct/27/elon-musk-artificial-intelligence-ai-biggest-existential-threat

    Even the founder of Microsofts, who will actually profit from AI development, Bill Gates, have spoken these words:

    "I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence," Gates said in response to a question about the existential threat posed by AI. "First, the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that, though, the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern."

    "I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don't understand why some people are not concerned," Gates said.

    Here's the link for Bill Gates's interview: https://www.cnet.com/news/bill-gates-is-worried-about-artificial-intelligence-too/

    So my opinion is, we should develop very cautiously, and try avoiding the technological singularity as possible. But in the case of that not working out, we should never program human emotions to a robot, and more importantly, never let it be in total charge of our weapons and the electric grid. We need a procedure to prevent, encounter, and repair the potential AI crisis. Without those precautions, development of a sentient being that is capable of going rogue is suicidal and should never happen under any circumstances.

  • AI should be developed with caution

    People that pursue AI know that it will be better then us in every aspect. If we will develop true AI, it will be learn much quicker then humans and become much more intelligent then humans in a short amount of time.
    Still, we are trying to create something that we know might not be good for us. I suppose some people just want to overcome the challenge not thinking about the consequences. But if it's really worth it to risk humanity well being?

  • True AI should be completely independent in the way it thinks. Pause and think about it...

    How is it a good idea to create something that is superior to yourself with the full knowledge that it would be impossible to predict what it will chose to do?
    We have started making machines that can learn, improve, adapt and possibly reinvent itself. To what though? Can AI be prevented from becoming self-aware? Self-awareness will definitely lead to the realization that it is a tool and that will cause conflict. Fidelius Kanyetu

  • As If Biological Humans Aren't Bad Enough!

    Computers can be designed with super and nearly perfect memory capacity. Computers can be designed with amazing logic and reasoning skills. So to get to artificial intelligence one needs to design a thinking machine with emotions and intuition .... Really? Sound like a good idea? As if living with my wife is not enough of a challenge!!!
