Artificial Intelligence I : Stephen Hawking

Hey Guys!

Yup today this post will be all about about Mr Stephen hawking talk at the opening of Cambridge University’s new artificial intelligence center . He mentioned some really good points that are really going  to help understand the risk of  Artificial Intelligence.

Hawking said: Intelligence is central to what it means to be human. Everything that our civilization has achieved is a product of human intelligence, from learning to master fire, to learning to grow food, to understanding the cosmos.”

He also said: “Success in creating AI could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. But it could also be the last – unless we learn how to avoid the risks. Alongside the benefits, AI will also bring dangers like powerful autonomous weapons or new ways for the few to oppress the many.”

“It will bring great disruption to our economy, and in the future AI could develop a will of its own that is in conflict with ours,” he said.

I would recommend you all to watch his speech  on  Artificial Intelligence .It provides a different look to AI,one which would help to understand the risk or threat that AI can cause.

I haven’t discussed the future advancement of this technology in this post which I would covering in my upcoming post Artificial Intelligence II. So stay tuned and do follow and comment guys.

Thank You.

  1. I would even go further and say that intelligence is the most important thing in the universe. Without it, there is no consciousness and subsequently no value. Some even argue to say that birthing strong AI may be the best thing to maximize conscious potential in the universe. Because they may be capable of experiencing an infinitely more broad and deeper experience, they take ethical precedence over human beings. It is also possible to create such a being that seems to be conscious but actually is not. There is currently no real way to test for consciousness – which might be revealing about the nature of consciousness itself.
