One of the thing I am doing to better myself is learn more about AI and a great place is in IBM for the Great AI Debate.
Here is the panel. Starting from the left
The next billion
and moderated by Guy Burgess
Personally, I take a positive outlook when it comes to AI. People who like AI gave positive answers and not apocalyptic improving us and looking at the history through the industrial revolution, the life of horses after the cars came. For horses, it wasn’t good, but England had a 30% of farmlands dedicated to feeding horses and that 30 % was opened up.
Again I am biased to this question but none of the other people convinced me to be afraid. All they were saying is that we should fear the unknown and one person was talking about that we are only a little bit better than the rest of the animal and should fear something better than us. One said that if we created an AI smarter than us then are they smarter than us?
The point is people are looking at the worst of humanity that we cant teach it to be good. Is it inadequacy that makes you look at the flaws of humanity and not the marvel we have created?
We have constructed beast of steel that breaths steam and exhale black fogs that travels much faster than we have ever before.
We have constructed weapons of mass destruction that were truly feared to ignite the atmosphere if it goes off.
At the end the day it is intent. It is so far off from a realised self-aware AI.
Fear of the unknown is something that stagnates us.
