What Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Why We Should Be Wary Of It – You Will Be Shock ~ April 19, 2018

This is worth thinking about  folks. It seems we are closer than ever, and getting closer in an exponential way to seeing AI unduly influence our lives…oh wait, isn’t that happening NOW? Please read this article from Prepare For Change, know that AI will never understand Love, and…

InJoy!

Artificial Intelligence is any task performed by a program or a machine that, if a human carried out the same activity, we would say the human had to use human intelligence to accomplish the task.

Although that is a broad definition AI system will typically demonstrate some of the following actions associated with human intelligence: problem-solving, planning, learning, reasoning, knowledge representation, perception, motion, and manipulation and, to a lesser extent, social intelligence and creativity.

AI is used to recommend what you should buy next online; AI influences many of the choices we make on social media and shopping sites. Ever wondered how Facebook can program us. By using algorithms, algorithms have the ability to determine what content we see on our News Feed and recommend who we should date. AI is what is used to understand what you say to virtual assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri. AI is also used to set your insurance premiums, and if you can’t get a loan, it’s because an AI-based system denied it. AI is also used by many companies to screen job applicants. These are but to name a few.

We should be wary of AI seeing that in a few decades we will find that our lives are over controlled and we find ourselves unable to deviate from the life path that AI decides, we will be slaves to a machine that determines our future.
What makes this scenario so dangerous is that it is currently being planned by some overarching master intelligence or machine overlord. We are currently creating the very technology that could lead to our demise, every click every like, and every share is feeding the machine. This makes it difficult to protect ourselves against the AI system and impossible to control it. In Machines would instead take over in a piecemeal fashion. Whether it arrives today or in decades, the threat posed by AI is real.

Although the he “Terminator Scenario” is a real possibility, it’s something that we can easily avoid and create measures to protect ourselves against it, via legislation and in how we design robot intelligence. Arguably the greater threat from AI comes from developing machines that are better decision makers than we are. Consequently, we could become the slaves of automated decision makers and whoever controls them. That is why experts like Stephen Hawking, has said that” efforts to create thinking machines pose a threat to our very existence.” Even Elon Musk has given his opinion on the matter, watch his take regarding AI in the clip below;
