For so many years, people all over the world both scientists and physicians tried to get into a reasonable responses as to whether Artificial Intelligence (AI) will actually help bring about human advancement or it is to oust us into slavery in the near future.
Well, this debate has been going on for so many years, and people like Stephen Hawking, a renowned Physician, warning about its dangers yet to come in human lives, and others like Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of Facebook App, focusing on how it will actually advance human lives in the near future.
Stephen Hawking before his death had previously voiced concerns that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be dangerous in the near future, if appropriate measures are not considered.
“I fear that AI may replace humans altogether. If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI that improves and replicates itself. This will be a new form of life that outperforms humans.” He said.
Definitely, his advised has driven a reasonable worry to many, especially those in the world of Science and Physics, and certainly taps into somewhat naturally fearful to the human population across the world. This fear comes from the concept that humans are weak and replaceable, and any Artificial Intelligence which can outlive human lives will ultimately replace them. And in a more primitive sense, humans are afraid that an Artificial Intelligence may one day actively seek to harm them like the era of slavery.
In either sense, they are concerns worth noting and taking into consideration all other opinions about its future positive aspects. After all, many other experts, like Bill Gates, consider Artificial Intelligence as the “Next Big Thing” and believed there will be technological renaissance that will transform our society when the time comes.
As skeptical as I am like what the wild goat in the forest will say “I’m just crying for crying seek, but the forest has no power to save me from the hunter” so as the minority people in the world are, towards Artificial Intelligence in the near future and it dangers in human lives or perhaps it will just look more like any other technology – one that is used for both benevolent and malevolent purposes.
