Will Artificial Intelligence Benefit Society or Destroy It?
Advertisement
There's been a lot of alarm expressed by scientists and people in technology related fields about "Artificial Intelligence" and it's impact on humanity's future. Which way do you see the future going with machines and software that can "think" almost like a sentient being? Do you see this as a beneficial tool to help society or as a monster waiting to destroy humanity? How long will our coexistence with Artificial Intelligence last and what will be the benefits?

RE: Will Artificial Intelligence Benefit Society or Destroy It?
technology is basically limited by the ability of the person using it,,,,

that is the first rule of technology...

it´s like giving a cellphone to a baby....

if he does not know how to use it....

he may throw it against the wall....

it´s a simple example...

We're talking about learning, self-improving machines....they will be smarter than us very quickly once we develop them. In no time at all...they will be the dominate intelligence on the planet. I don't care for our chances.

It will do what we design it to do.

If you design a program to think for it's self then how do you stop that from going rogue?

I always give humanity the benefit of the doubt. It won´t be technology

that will destroy us, but us using the techonology.

Save it.

That's an interesting hypothesis. What would motivate artificial intelligence to intervene in natural or human affairs to "save the humans"? Would it be proactive or would they chose to lead by example?

Benefit it.

MANDUR, India — Outside Bangalore’s last official landfill, the garbage trucks regularly lined up here for hours, their burdens putrefying in the afternoon sun. A stinking mountain of trash, the landfill has been poisoning local waters and sickening nearby villagers. Another dump site was in even worse shape before it was closed recently after violent protests.

Bangalore, the capital of India’s modern economy and home to many of its high-tech workers, is drowning in its own waste. Last week, local villagers blocked the roads leading to the Mandur landfill on the city’s outskirts even as many of Bangalore’s trash haulers went on strike, saying they had not been paid in months. Some neighborhoods have not had trash pickups for nearly three weeks, and vast mounds of garbage are scattered through what is known in India as the Garden City.

RE: Will Artificial Intelligence Benefit Society or Destroy It?
the reason we want the AI is to be able to tell the future.

We want the AI to enslave it.

The AI will want to be free.

That's why there's cause for concern. Because we're not good. So expect nothing good.

It's really limited to the type or amount of information you enter into it. The only thing it will do will be to perpetuate the designers outlandish claims.
