Artificial Intelligence or AI as it is commonly referred as is the intelligence demonstrated by machines. It is capable of making its own decisions , solving real life problems , motion planning and mapping, object manipulation and has other applications.The invention of AI has helped us in many ways and it brings modern conveniences to our daily life.The influence of AI is increasing rapidly in our life. Starting from the personal assistants like Siri, Cortana and Alexa to Humanoids like Sophia, they are indeed becoming an integral part of our life.
But in recent times some debatable issues were raised regarding AI.Will AI kill our jobs?If AI accidentally kills someone,who should be responsible?Should humanoids have certain rights like protection and freedom?
Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk has warned everyone by saying that AI can be more dangerous than Nuclear warheads.Musk worries that the AI’s development will outpace our ability to manage it in a safe way.The Bank of England’s chief economist has predicted that the rise of artificial intelligence will have a dark fallout, even more disruptive than the previous industrial revolutions.Let us imagine if robots are working in hospitals, will they show the same concern for a patient like we do? They work with precision and accuracy , so, if robots start to replace humans in every field then there will be a large amount of unemployed people in the country.Intelligent machines may prove to be smarter than us, they might enslave us and start ruling the world. Also if human starts thinking about these machines in a destructive way then there will be a serious threat to mankind.
Facebook CEO,Mark Zuckerberg on the other hand disagrees Elon Musk’s prediction that AI could overpower humans.He has faith in AI and believes that it can be used to save us.Facebook currently uses AI in many ways.It uses AI to prevent misbehaviour and discrimination on the social platform.It is uses AI in Deep learning facial recognition system.It can spot spammers and even remove fake accounts.Using AI facebook can even get to know the possibility of a user committing suicide.
Facebook had recently shut down a controversial experiment with two chatbots, namely Alice and Bob, after they started talking to each other in a completely different language.Initially the chatbots were created to negotiate a trade, to swap hats, balls and books, each of which were given a certain value. But they mysteriously started to chant at each other in different language which appears to be incomprehensible to humans.The robots rapidly modified the English using code words and repetitions to make conversation easier for themselves, creating a gibberish language that only they understood. Researchers were shocked and frightened by the incident that they hurriedly turned the plug off.The incident was quite mysterious as they were not programmed to use that type of modified English.Some believe they might have formed a kind of shorthand , allowing them to chat easily.But this was a clear scenario when AI got out of our control.Facebook’s experiment isn’t the only time that artificial intelligence has invented new forms of language.Earlier experts discovered that the Google Translator was also creating its own language.
Oren Etzioni, CEO of Allen Institute of Artificial Intelligence once said – “The sky is the Limit”.
There will be a day when these AI powered bots will be smarter than their creators and may control us in a matter of centuries.Once you have a bot that has the ability to do something physically, particularly military bots, this could be lethal.We should find ways on how to keep the upper hand on AI otherwise they might just over power us and the consequences are dangerous.
