Yes AI can scare a lot of people but then again there can be some real good that can come out of it. The big question is which way will humanity go with the AI?
The self awareness issue on computer in general may be better talked about in this thread as we are starting to stray away from the driver-less delivery cars.
Good point, I fear for the safety of the human race because we go forward often blindly in the name of discovery. I think one of these discoveries is going to be our undoing. I think AI if not handled perfectly, and I mean perfectly, could be one of those places where our undoing comes to pass.
Yes I think you are right on that and I have a feeling that many things are happening at the same time that many advances have been made that we are not seeing. Whether the powers that be will do anything to make sure that AI is controlled some what or not is something that has yet to remain unseen.
Yup, and with some of the abysmally poor decisions we've made in the past I hold little hope we'll make the right one this time. I guess I just went from optimist to pessimist.
Well it is good to have some pessimists in the crowd as it helps those that are free thinkers help make the world a better place by keeping it from going over that edge that will surely doom us all. I think that AI will become a free thinker and I think that with all that is happening in the world many advances will start to come out and peace will be with all.
And every one will sit in a circle, hold hands, and sing cumbayah. But just in case that doesn't come to pass I'll keep my guns oiled and my ammunition dry.
Now that was funny. I doubt that everything will be peachy keen as that but efforts have been made and will continue to be made to see that things will keep progressing forward. The only thing that I do not understand right now is why some technologies are being repressed and we are still stuck with the internal combustion engine.
