The development and acceleration of artificial intelligence are extremely worrying. This is not the same as other historical step changes in helping mankind; it could actually be a threat to mankind. Artificial Intelligence is perhaps OUR BRAIN replicating itself into an alternative (better) life form. These ‘machines’ can ‘learn’ and at a rate far in excess of our own capability and capacity. How long would it be before AI is beyond our own comprehension?
How long would it be before AI is beyond our own comprehension? Centuries, Years, Months… they are learning at a rate faster than anything before. It is a very scary scenario and one that so far, the WORLD has failed to understand and control.
True some if the AI machines will aid mankind, as we still control the ON/OFF switch, but if we are to believe the science these machines will learn their own weaknesses and resolve without our knowledge.
Watching these developments very carefully. Soon we will need a ROBOT TAX as governments will lose PAYE and employment tax revenue as more and more tasks are de-humanised. Who wants driverless cars and WHY are we letting this happen?
