What do you know about artificial intelligence

Utilizing Artificial Intelligence in computers, to my mind, is outsourcing human capabilities thereby creating job losses.

Artificial intelligence technology will actually take over about 70% of the world's jobs. That means a lot of people will be without a job and this could pose many issues for many people. I read an article that artificial intelligence technology could actually lower the Earth's population because people would not want kids since there would be nothing for them. Jobs will be scarce, food would be limited, homes would be scarce, etc. So why would you want a child growing up in that world? A world where a child would just basically be worth nothing, and would be a burden on society.

I am on the fence about artificial intelligence because there is many benefits but not a lot of them seem good to the working class people. Could you imagine if they started outsourcing jobs to robots and said 80% of all customer support jobs will be replaced by robots, 90% of constructions jobs will be replaced by robots, 95% transportation jobs will be replaced by robots, and the list goes on. That would be quite scary. Where would the jobs be at?

That's really scary. I just hope that when that day comes, I already have enough money to sustain my living even if I lost my job.

I do not believe it will happen in our life times (hopefully) but artificial intelligence technology poses many risks for human beings. Not only does artificial intelligence create their own languages, but as mentioned already the artificial intelligence robot named Sophia apparently wants to destroy all humans. I believe that artificial intelligence androids would actually want that. They would want to kill off their creators. It happens in science fiction a lot and sometimes science fiction becomes science reality.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Yes especially if human emotions will be programmed to AI. Human intelligence has been successfully programmed to AI so there is a possibility that emotions can be programmed also. And if that happens I think AI will have the total awareness of what humans are doing and would aim to dominate humans. This seems to be impossible for now but in the future, this might happen. All the technologies today seems so impossible in the past, but now we are the living witnesses of what human mind can do. Hopefully, we don't witness anymore when AIs dominates humans.

@vhinz I believe nothing is impossible when it comes to artificial intelligence, that's why everything about it gives me the scare. The world is going to be in a messy form.

I think their emotions will be more artificial than genuine. It's unlikely that they'll the total complexity of human beings. Nothing can match the perfect nature of humans. We're imperfect but made the best through God's design.

It's seriously detrimental to mankind no matter what advantages artificial intelligence seem to offer now, once it on the take over mode, it's seriously going to destroy the world starting from mankind. I hope any of you have watched terminator, it's practically what artificial intelligence is capable of.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I'd have to agree. It's not a far reality. I'm sure we're all at risk wherever AI is concerned. The fact that they think they're smarter than us says a lot. So them concluding that we should be eliminated isn't all that surprising.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

@vhinz I seriously pray that such day never comes sooner. Maybe in a million years later it should come but now I'm strongly advocating against it by all means necessary.

AI could be a big advantage to humans as long as the developer of those programs would not reach to the point that the AI they are making becomes a self-aware program. The level of the sophistication of AI programs must be controlled and must have a limit to prevent them from dominating humans.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I think no matter how many precautions we put, they'll eventually overtake us. That's because they have the capability to grow beyond their intended use. So we shouldn't create something that may endanger our own existence.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Me too. While the future may seem fun, I doubt people are actually happy to live there. We won't know what truly awaits us in the advanced digital age. Only time will tell how artificial intelligence will change humanity.

I get the feeling those who are after AI have only the rich in mind. Just like our government where all the schemes they have put up are only for the rich. Your observation is indeed thought provoking in that imagine not wanting children as this approach will have no life left for the future generation.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

@iamawriter I seriously doubt that should artificial intelligence take over generally, it's going to be meant for the rich mostly. I believe there would be higher versions as well as lower versions for both the rich and poor to be carried along.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Steve5

If artificial intelligence did takeover, it would mean the eventual doom of the human race. They're capable of outmaneuvering any of us and control technology. So I imagine something like "The Terminator" happening.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Steve5

Me too. The rich control large parts of the world. They act behind the scenes and manipulate people's lives. So if this happens, we may actually experience a dystopian society like the one in young adult novels.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Steve5

That's a scary thought. But it's also really true. The rich have only their interests in mind. So they might not mind not having future generations to take over. They even prefer having machines instead of people since they can order them around to do anything without having to pay them.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

@Everett This analysis is very scary I must admit to that. Considering the fact that robots can do virtually everything man can do and even more effectively and efficiently than man. So therefore, it's not going to be so hard having human labor replaced with artificial intelligence labor and it's going to be a shame to man, having to be replaced by bunch of computer software and hardwares.

The fact that Sophia has already said that she wants to "reproduce more of her kind" is a very scare thing to me. This kind of rote instinctual cognition is almost animal, but it reflects the pattern of all forms of life who want to survive through progeny and offspring. In other words, "she" feels that there should be more of "her" around. These "beings" have the potential to take our jobs and also the potential to change democracy and human rights as we know them!

In every sphere I notice there is no future for kids and added to this if those that are fully aware of the consequences of using AI going ahead with gusto showing how clever they are in terms of technology somehow seems unreasonable and unfair.

I'm on the fence as to whether or not this "doomsday" scenario is really a possibility. Yes, I certainly don't disagree that artificial intelligence has the potential to replace a huge portion of our workforce. However, I also believe that the world's governments would find ways to circumvent it turning into a disaster. A lot of intelligent people in different fields of science, philosophy, and politics agree that in the event that such a huge portion of the population would be out of work, a universal income would most likely become a reality. I'm absolutely not opposed to a universal income, as I already believe that what we regard as "work" and the monetary system in general are a form of enslavement as it is, but that is a topic for another time.

If there are no takers in that if people shun this technology and go about their life without the use of gadgets that are derived from AI I wonder if that concept will take root. But what I notice about the younger generation is that they will jump for anything that is new and go for it without thinking. Take for example these cell phones that have 4 cameras. I am sure there must be many youngsters who may have grabbed those cameras but not knowing what to with them.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

DenisP

You're definitely not wrong in the notion that a lot of people will blindly jump onto the next technological bandwagon, simply to be up to date with the latest trends. It's not just the younger generations either. There is an entire tech culture that has popped up in recent years, and it features people of all ages. These people constantly want to push technology to the limit and be a part of the scene without ever really considering the possibility of certain consequences.

That's statistics are really shocking... I hope that people specially on the manufacturing side have a some-sort of a containment action for this. Although i think that no AI can replace a human mind in terms of visual analysis and control, AI can dominate human by accuracy and speed.

I know how programming works, every argument or command in a program always have a fail safe module. It is the essence of AI, a technology can recognize and know mistakes in an action. But it only runs on codes and arguments. Humans do this by experience and skills...

I know that it is a possibility that humans can be overrun by AI , i just hope that manufactures know all the implications of their actions.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I too think that they'll possibly do more harm than good. They're not necessary for humanity's survival. And the fact that many doomsday stories revolve around technology turning against its creators. Now that's scary.

That 70% you had estimated for the jobs that will be take over by artificial intelligence is a good number. Most of the AIs are robots and not exactly the robots that we see in the movies who look like humans. The robots are just arms or maybe a moving conveyor belt with special functions. In the Toyota workshop, the painting of the cars are done by robots because humans cannot come near the baking oven where the cars go to solidify the new paint on the body.

I have been following this technology for decades, and, most recently, I have been following what Google has been doing with it. To me, some of these developments ARE pretty alarming. Recently, Google had to shut down two of its A.I. units because they developed an encrypted language which only "they" could understand. Also, an A.I. unit has already gained citizenship in Saudi Arabia--her name is Sophia, and she has been supposedly known to talk about the destruction of mankind. There are tons of online "robots" who are taking jobs, potentially, from people, and I think that this trend will most likely continue.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

vhinz

The development of more highly intelligent AI like Sophia could be a threat to employment in the future. AI robots can work 24/7 without getting sick, bored, stressed, exhausted, and does not complain. If AI Robots can be afforded by many, probably more employers would be willing to acquire in replacement of human labor.

@iamawriter It's really a worrying situation because I doubt the world is ready to go that far yet, and most people would have difficulty adapting to it. There are plenty people who have great avarice for technology, so imagine their condition when virtually everything is ran by one robot.

I haven't read about this AI called Sophia but I believe I have seen some movies that showed what advanced artificial intelligence can do and the harm it can possibly cause to man should it develop its own thinking or get corrupted and start having a mind of its own.

This made me wonder how dark life can become if things went horribly wrong. It shouldn't surprise us that AI can actually turn on its creators. It's not a good idea to make them complex since they'll eventually make decisions that could bring destruction to the human race.

@JoeMilford This is so true, the rate robotics are improving this time, it's not going to be a distant time and people would be retrenchment from most works they do as a result of Artificial intelligence take over.

In one conversation with the computer programmers in our office, AI or artificial intelligence was brought up. We had admitted that no AI can match a man’s brain for now but it can be said that an AI can operate like a human. One example is the driverless car which is in the testing stage already. Although the Google Car has still many issues to resolve, it can already function as a driver-assisted car which means it can drive by itself and a human just needs to do the monitoring for safety precautions. That’s one big step for man towards artificial intelligence.

No matter what just as we are expected to retain hard copies of documents in case our computer fails us I feel even here we are expected to standby just in case whatever works on AI fails. This is just my conjecture but not something that can be ignored.

I have seen several adverts about artificial intelligence in car driving, especially with Ford products. There was one I saw that parked itself in a car space block with vehicles both in front and back with the space in between.

I agree, no one can replace a human mind in terms of intelligence. I'm a programmer and i know how a basic AI code works. AI is actually a code that works with lots of arguments and statements. Its actually a step by step verification of events. With the events made there's always a fail safe, a command that tells the robot what to do when it encountered an event that is not on the program.

Basically the robot doesn't know what to do, where it is or what it's doing...humans just imprint them on the system so that it looks like the robot is aware of it's surroundings.

Currently the AI is not that strong but we have to be concerned about it in future. You can see that it would be harder to get jobs back once they start automating with the AI. So it's always better to work around with the AI and that should be good enough in that case to say it can be dangerous as well.

I know that it is being developed more all the time, and the future of AI virtually seems limitless. It seems like the scenarios depicted in movies about "Bots" taking over are not too far fetched. I hope we don't end up with a Jurassic Park of robots.

Would you know how exactly it works or if you have a link where one get some idea about it you could attach it here. Sooner or later one must know what this is all about. There are countless who are experts at the computer without know what a bit or a byte is. But this is different.

I am not sure at all! It is kind of scary. There was a Will Smith movie, I think it was IRobot, that was about this very thing! I hope programmers are very careful about how far Artificial Intelligence is allowed to go. We don't want to get to a point where it is uncontrolled.

Robots being in a situation where they cannot be controlled is indeed a scary thing. When you and I have that fear I wonder why those who are creating them are cool about it. There could be unwanted mishaps too.

While progress is a good thing but if it leads to disaster as what we fear AI is expected to do, in course of time - atleast in some areas - there is no point in going for it. It looks like the techies are eager to showcase their ability to replace human beings.

This has been played out for some time now.I think technology advancement comes with good and greater disadvantage especially on the side of creating bots that are taking the place of humans both in mental and physical jobs.I think bots are replacing humans which need to be curtailed a bit.

I think that we are just getting started with the A.I. issues and complications and that this will be one of the biggest issues of our time. One of the most fundamental questions regarding this is whether or not these forms of consciousness should have the same rights as humans or not. Also, as they develop and advance further and further, how will we be able to regulate their behavior, and how will they behave around us--positively or negatively?

They are robots that are programmed with human intelligence. One of the dangers that I see with AI robots is that if their system is hacked and reprogrammed to go against humans.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Could you elaborate a bit more on this by giving examples. In what way will anything reprogrammed will go against humans? What language should one know to programme human intelligence?



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

vhinz

Not sure what particular programming language is used to program for AI like Sophia but it some kind of symbolic programming language. And for big industries like the developer of Sofia, they might have developed their own language for AI. AI's logic is from the human intelligence that has been programmed to be understood by a machine. A robot is programmable which means it will execute whatever the humans what it wants to do.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Martinsx1

@iamawriter I believe there is a coded language or program that helps these humans artificial intelligence robots to function as human aids, and such programs can be attacked by hackers who rewrite the coded language and put one of their own, thereby controlling the robots to do as they choose.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

There's really a possibility on this that's why the developers need to make sure that the AI systems' security could not easily be breached by hackers.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

They can prevent it from being "easily' breached. But we all know that someone who's intelligent and motivated enough can do it. It usually ends up becoming a question of how long before it happens.

This exactly my point @vhinz, one can get a bot to help with domestic choirs and have such turn on them probably as a result of of hack or CPU corruption as a result of virus.

I've watched on youtube AI robots that are designed to help humans for doing some tasks such as carrying boxes, clean the house, etc. If those robots will be available at affordable price, I think employers would be willing to buy one and replace their domestic helpers. A time might also come that there will be AI robots working at different offices.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Based on what I saw, they don't need to be hacked. They're all capable of turning against their creators at some point. It's just a question of when and how.

@JoeMilford This is exactly my worry about artificial intelligence incorporation in the human society in form of robots. There are serious security risks of running these bots. The softwares CPU operating these bots are capable of being attacked by virus and hackers, and such can be very harmful to people.

It's the way of life. Stuff happens when you least expect it. Like how we don't know what will happen when AI becomes too intelligent for its creators. So it's better to avoid letting it happen.

"curtailed a bit" is an under statement. I think we should work backwards to see what the consequences will be should this become a way of the world. Surely people will not be in demand when it comes to jobs and this indeed is something to ponder over.

I don't really think it's as nice as we'd like to believe. While it will advance technology, it will most certainly take us a few steps back. Like the value of human beings will be questioned with the dawn of AI. That's how potentially menacing it can become.

In past in my engineering days, I have learned some of the fundamentals. But those are changed days now. In fact now chat bots and other people are getting more into the AI. And this means things are going to be good enough to see how we can make use of them in near future. I guess we have to also see how the AI can be helpful for us humans in days to come.

I think now a days they are also introducing them into the Whatsapp. And you can easily setup the bots such as this. And it can manage the things just fine. I have however noticed that some bots are a bit harder to make use of. like they just post generic stuff after registration. So it's not that good or bad.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I've also felt this way. However, it's just sad that we're so easily affected by a computer program. It's different when someone actually greets us offline. Now we just settle for anything artificial.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Yeah. The data collection and learning and manipulating people is what makes the AI dangerous. People give out too much data. And that needs to be stopped. So you can see that people have to do things that makes the most out of their time. And simply that is not easy if you ask me about it.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I agree. I feel like it's about to become threat to human existence. Well, it's either that or the eventual doomsday from cosmic events. I feel like we're living on borrowed time.

But it's better to avoid stuff that will make it arrive faster. I remember "Terminator" has that line about doomsday only getting postponed and never truly prevented.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

overcast

I think cosmic doomsday is less likely. The AI bots are likely to have more damage than cosmic. There is a concept known as "great filter". That keeps many species from exploring universe or even exploring their own planet. So that is something you have to understand on the point of the destruction. Our own actions lead to doomsday we don't need demons and angels for that.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Steve5

I actually meant scientific stuff like the sun eventually exploding or something. But you're right. Even our own actions are enough to put us in that spot. So I guess we should find ways to prevent others from pursuing stuff that'll eventually lead to our own demise.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Based on the estimates it would take 13000000 years for sun to explode or even go supernova. Those are lot of years to be honest. And most likely people are either extinct on earth or move to another planet. And that's how I see the AI part moving ahead instead of universe exploration.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

That's kind of funny and scary at the same time. AI is more likely to wipe out humans before natural cosmological events. Let's hope humans are smart enough to avoid making AI as smart as Skynet.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Yeah. I think the only way to stop AI from taking over is to only limit them into context from the start. We should not make them and expect they would behave well. That would never work.

I'd rather we rely on ourselves when it comes to human tasks. We're kind of getting too dependent on technology. Anything that's too much is bad.

Chat bots can be funny when you think about it. But sometimes they're just limited to programmed replies. So maybe more will be capable of learning as time goes on. I've seen some chat bots who can do this online.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Yes there is not much AI about chatbots. It's just keyword and the replies game. So if they spot the keyword they reply with the specific answer. And that is what is going on about the chatbots so far. I have seen some in deep working chatbots that are actually commenting like humans. But not sure where this is going.

The world grows everyday in technology field, I believe most world powers like United States of America, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, China and even Korea are not letting any day pass by without looking at upgrading there previous techs.

I first watched about the use of artifical intelligence in a movie called "Person of Interest". Ever since that day, I became aware of what technology is capable of. Down to the phones we all use, the government have a software technology which they can use and hack it and hear and see everything they desire. I believe the CIA are even secretly using artificial intelligence to spy on the world.

Spying us on the devices that we are using every day is just fine as long as the reason for doing that is for our security and prevents us from getting harmed by bad guys.

As with many inventions, AI is both interesting and scary. There will definitely be job losses as AI becomes able to replace humans for certain tasks. For the moment it's not much of a concern, but eventually, as human labor becomes less and less valuable, I think there will be increases in war and famine.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

This is absolutely true, that it's not giving much concern now doesn't mean it would keep on being this way. With the rate technology is advancing lately, it's not going to be that long before millions of people start losing their jobs and it's not going to something funny, there would definitely be hunger and famine.

mildredtabitha

I definitely agree with you. The increasing rate of robots will result to humans losing their jobs but at the same time, other jobs will be created especially in the US. Jobs like watching if the robot is doing okay, worn out, need replacement etc. In other terms, humans will start working for robots.

Now that's even more terrifying. It's like the first state of enslavement. We're the ones doing it to ourselves. Rather, it's the ones higher up like government officials making us do stuff like that. Skynet is looking more possible as time goes by.

That is some consolation I say (lol). How many does on need to watch a robot? Apart ofrom losing jobs the scary part is a day will come when our thoughts can also be read. I think Star Bucks robots know what you want to order even before you place your order (lol)

That's really unsettling. It could be the dystopian future shown in movies. A life where no one's thoughts are private and AI is very powerful. That would be a terrifying life for humanity.

Artificial Intelligence will likely pursue by the first countries around the globe for sure. They have the power to do this kind of stuff. Kinda scary because I cant imagine what life would be if this would become reality.

Me too. I'm scared for us normal people. I can already see the rich benefiting a lot from this. It reminds me of Terminator movies where the humans become almost extinct. We shouldn't let that happen.

That's a scary thought. But realistic nonetheless. I know how devastating losing job can be. Most people count on their careers as giving a majority of their life's purpose. If it ever happens, then we'll be one step closer to losing the value of our existence.

I wouldn't want that to happen. We can only hope that we're smart enough to stay away from such inventions. Some people predict that humans will make their own undoing. One of the possible causes is advanced AI.

That's the thing. We might not even get so far if the AI decides to turn on its creators. They can control technology and launch nuclear missiles that will wipe us from existence. We'll be helpless to stop them since they're made of technology.
