“Artificial intelligence is growing up fast, as are robots whose facial expressions can elicit empathy and make you quiver” A quote written by a author, poet, and naturalist named Diane Ackerman. Most people in the society totally must have agreed to this quote. They have the same mindset, a negative one regarding to the matter of Artificial Intelligence like the fear of them surpassing human intelligence. The rest might just think that the possibility of artificial intelligence doing that is unlikely impossible. Why do the society felt like this to artificial intelligence? Its development is still slow and even still very far from overcoming the human intelligence or to demolish us. Why do we need to worry so much? Is it a good thing or a …show more content…
Some people said yes and some said no. This is a question that leads and made a lot of arguments in the society. People who said yes said this because of the incredibly high progress in the artificial intelligence development. Back in the 1950’s, artificial intelligence at that time only can play chess, checker, and solve mathematical problems. But then, in less than seventy years, artificial intelligence had changed a lot in progress. In February 2011, a magnificent machine named “Watson” changed the development and history of artificial intelligence. Watson is an IBM supercomputer that was combined with artificial intelligence which answer questions that is given to him. Watson changed the history as it managed to beat two contestants in a show called “Jeopardy” claiming one million us dollars as the prize. Watson can process data in a very quick …show more content…
Rollo Carpenter made it. It is an artificial intelligence that had made the whole world astonished and shocked in the Turing test, which is a test for conversational robots on how good was it. The reason for it to surprised people is it managed to scam questioner in the Turing test into thinking that it was itself a human. After becoming online in 1997, it has approximately finished 65 million conversations with Internet users and the number is still increasing. This extra-ordinary artificial intelligence process similar likes a human learning. First, Cleverbot analyze and learn from the conversations. It kept all of the things it learned in a huge database. Then, the Cleverbot will use the knowledge to respond better and clearer in future conversation. Watson and Cleverbot are just two. There is still more artificial intelligence that is even better from them and will be better in the future. The example of Watson and Cleverbot frightened huge amount of people in the society. Even famous people said that artificial intelligence is a threat to humanity. For example, Stephen hawking, a famous British scientist said, “full development of artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race”. Not just him, but also Bill Gates, the popular billionaire and the founder of Microsoft, said, “humans should be worried about the threat posed by artificial intelligence.”

    With a mind of their own, robots could efficiently plot to overthrow human rule. If this did happen, the human race might be jeopardized. It is better to prevent something from happening in the future by squashing it now. Robots should not be made or advanced any further for this reason. In addition, a recent study that is included in the article “Sophia, the robot, says artificial intelligence is ‘good for the world’” “conclude that up to 85 percent of jobs in developing countries could be at risk…”(France-Presse 3).…

    Since the dawn of innovation in artificial intelligence, there have been many people concerned about the machines becoming far too powerful. Michael R. LaChat affirms this concern in his article titled “Artificial Intelligence and Ethics: An Exercise in the Moral Imagination,” stating that we must be careful to not overstep our boundaries and most notably “Don’t play God.” This fear, while supported by pop culture media, is already being accounted for. Industry professionals like Google’s DeepMind, build internal reset buttons to account for if the machines go rogue and try to oppress their creators. Since this fear is so popular, computer scientists developing for artificial intelligence have made extensive proactive measures to account for any display of hostility from the machine. However, as Nick Bostrom and Eliezer Yudkowsky point out in their paper, “The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence,” it is hard to make artificial intelligence unbiased, as they are founded upon machine learning, a concept where a machine is to interpret data and find patterns to replicate the results in future situations, which uses data that was gathered by humans, which, by nature, are biased.…

    Artificial Intelligence has been a staple of speculative fiction for many years now. Who can forget the murderous “HAL” (so named because each letter is one higher in the alphabet than IBM) from 2001: A SPACE ODESSY? But lately Artificial Intelligence, or “AI” to the techno-hipster set, has been going mainstream in a big way. Life always imitates art, and now IBM has indeed staked its future on AI in the form of their “Watson” product. It is very early in the game, but the promise of AI technology is immense.…

    In the little century of living, scientists have managed to create someone worth wild, computers. These devices have been equipped to receive and interpret data to complete the mission. On a global scale of higher development, this has caused heated debates about which is higher in intelligence between computers and humans. Scientist have only scratched the surface when it comes to this heated debate of superiority but soon we find out. The tension between artificial intelligence and the human mind has cause scientist all over the globe to critically think of who’s more dominant.…

    I visited the “de-facto” technology “help wanted” website (Dice.com) just now, and noticed there are 79,056 openings at the time of this writing. Headed over to Monster.com and typed in “cyber” and found a few hundred more, but far less than 209,000 let alone the wondrous 1,000,000 mentioned by Forbes. Having been in the security arena for over two decades now, I have seen how much it has grown, but never have I seen such a wonderful number: “1,000,000 Cybersecurity Experts blah blah blah.” Apologies for the “blah blah blah” portion, but the geek/nerd/pessimist/realist in me wouldn’t allow me to process this magical number. Mentally, the number seems absurd, so I decided to be fair. Headed back to Dice to search the term “Cyber” if the number (1,000,000) holds true, there should be no less than 20,000 openings in NYC (million divided by each state to be conservative).…

    Using this knowledge, it would explain why the government acquires their power in such a detestable manner. For instance, O’Brien states how “power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing” (Orwell 292). O’Brien talks about how the government attains their power through the pain and suffering of others. They have the ability to erase and input new information into human minds, thus allowing them to erase the qualities that wouldn’t benefit themselves. Furthermore, another literary critic, Kathleen Fitzpatrick, supports the statement that Winston is a…

    Even with almost seventy years of expansion, researchers have only just started experimenting with what AI can do. The ultimate goal of artificial intelligence is not to put the human mind into a computer, but “make computer programs that can solve problems and achieve goals in the world as well as humans” (“What is Artificial Intelligence?”). Artificial intelligence advancements have revolutionized fields such as, robotics, healthcare, education, and transportation. In the next two decades, “AI is poised to replace people in certain kinds of jobs … [and] lower the cost of many goods and services” (Stone, et al. 8).…

    How can one soar higher than the stars and be any longer than the dirt below them? Many have asked that question in regard to scientist who manipulated their data in a studies to prove their points. These scientists, who at one point could be seen as the forerunner in their field, now cannot be trusted when it comes to publishing their data. One of these leading scientists, Hwang Woo-Suk, was once considered the pride of Korea before being exposed as a fraud in 2005-2006. Having claimed to perfectly clone human egg cells in a Science article, Hwang was soon met with an investigation revolving his studies.…

    Throughout history and evolution of mankind, there have been many discoveries and they have advanced our lives in a way we could never have phantom. Pinker backs up his thesis by providing logical evidence from a variety of sources. He points out that crime rates dropped when people thought comic books would cause the opposite; IQ’s went up when television, transistor radios and rock videos were supposed to cause the opposite; electronic media was supposed to be “hazardous to intelligence, yet discoveries are multiplying like fruit flies.” Social media is a power horse that causes people to be drawn in whether they want to or not, however one must have the power to limit themselves to the quality not the…

    This general thinking regarding Artificial Intelligence has come from Hollywood movies. Hollywood movies have shown that Artificial Intelligence is dangerous for humanity if they start thinking on their own. According to a survey, an average student thinks that AI is dangerous for humanity. The first subject quoted, “Developing Artificial Intelligence will lead to the doom of humanity. The reason behind their thinking is ”There will be some fault machines and that will lead them to turn against humans.“ While the subject 2 expressed their views as, ”After developing AI humans’ future will lie in their own hands“ They went as far as to compare Artificial Intelligence with nuclear weapons, stating: ”At first atomic energy was utilized as weapon, however following quite a while of exploring, it was conceivable to collect the atomic energy.…
