Should We Fear Artificial Intelligence?

February 17, 2019

One thing I can say for sure; artificial intelligence (AI) will remain artificial.This type of intelligence will not replace the brilliance of the human mind that created it. It's much like an artificial plant. It will never grow like a "real" plant. Can you imagine trying to use artificial plants to grow food! Perhaps the many movies, podcasts, and articles about artificial intelligence has many people, well, afraid. There may be cause for concern as humanity has a tendency to lean towards destruction whenever a new idea is brought to fruition.The saying "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely" applies here. 

 

Artificial intelligence is much like a new toy or challenge. As integrity goes out the window, the need to destroy and goad the world's very existence and structure becomes an obsession. Instead of forging to "nourish society" we become tyrants with a thirst to "destroy." As Walter Scott wrote in 1808 (no it wasn't Shakespeare) in his poem 'Marmion' "Oh what a tangled web we weave / When first we practice to deceive."  The saying encapsulates wholly AI progression.

 

I discovered the two podcasts below regarding artificial intelligence, but there are many! I selected these two for no particular reason other than that they offer differing views. You may also find the article "9 Artificial Intelligence Trends You Should Keep An Eye On In 2019" from ZeroHedge interesting as well. Enjoy and do your own research there's plenty of information out there!
