Facebook closed down its AI engine after founder sun covered that AI had devised its own distinctive language that humans cannot comprehend. Analysts at the Facebook AI Research Lab (FAIR) discovered that chatbots had digressed from the script formatted for them and were conversing in a new language sans human information. This has introduced us to the new face that is awesome and horrifying prospect of AI.
AI cannot perceive atleast at this stage. To be precise we are not questioning the ability of Alexa intruding on your discussions or Siri knowing too much about your calendar and location data. There is a huge difference between voice equipped digital assistant and an AI. These Digital Assistant podiums are just extoled web search and are basic voice synergy tools. The extent of intelligence is nominal compared to true machine learning AI.Siri and Alexa cannot be compared to IBM’s Watson.
Scientists and techies like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Steve Wozniak have alerted that AI could lead to unpredictabled is astrous results. Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking had warned in 2014,“It would take off on its own and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.”
This sounds scary because our total earth is wired and connected. An AI will gradually solve the configuration and also merge and amalgamate with other AI systems. Maybe the AI will decide that mankind is a threat or mankind is a waste of resources. It seems reasonable from anentirely analytical perspective.
