Exploding Intelligence The dangers of A.I

2 years, 3 months ago

I just want to start a dialog on the many different advancements in robotics and intelligent machines since the beginning of this decade. And would be very interested to hear every ones thoughts on such futuristic predictions as Ray Kurzweils ‘Singularity’ and other related works. Do you think it will ever be possible for a machine to become ‘Self-aware’?.

We can only create such a system when we fully understand our brain and then think of it again. For we don’t even know what our consiousness does, the only thing we understand is that we can do great love and great harm, and build shit..

So if we create a system self aware of itself based on our logic, how can the system feel the warmth of love. And if it doesn’t how mad will it become…

@spiraltouch I get what your saying but if a machine can imitate emotion how do we know if there real or not? Its an interesting subject. Here’s what I wrote on A.I systems a few weeks ago.

A.I
In the past few years many different philosophers, scientists and futurists have been becoming increasingly concerned about the current path of A.I development.
Even in Aristotle’s time myths of mechanical men and higher intelligence where the prevailing stories of the time. But to understand man’s fascination with creation we needn’t go that far back. Even in the 1950’s writers and philosophers where making prophecies of how the human race will meet its end at the very hands of our own creations. Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ is a prime example of how a person’s own creation can become that person’s personal bogyman.
Some of the most successful films of all time are about our evil robot creations turning on us, from The Terminator to the matrix, stories about malevolent machines coming to kill you seem to captivate.
But is all that just movie stuff? Or is there actually a creditable threat? Futurists like Jaan Tallin and Andrew McAfee and writers like Isaac Asimov clearly think there is cause for concern. Even Ray Kurzweil, one of the foremost campaigners for the advancements in A.I, has advised caution.
But most of the arguments about destructive A.I seem to rest on the assumption that one day people will run the world and the next robots will. This is a mistake. I believe that this change will happen slowly, so slowly that very few will even notice. Less than a decade ago mobile phones where the size of bricks and iPods had yet to be invented. As each generation embraces the technology of its predecessors it becomes easier and easier to accept new technology.
Soon the human race will have the technology to do things which where once thought impossible. But with this great achievement comes an unparallel amount of responsibility.
