    Hey, all!

    I opened a topic about artificial intelligence.
    Computers are becoming so smart and it should be discussed.
    Currently, experts are trying to implement human intuition to give them to be able to exhibit complete intelligence.

    Do you think it can have a bad impact?

    Obviously there are several advantages of AI. I personally believe that the next big step for technology comes by better analyzing data (you can predict f.e. diseases, earthquakes, weather (more accurately), traffic, terrorism etc.). I truly think that AI is the way for that.

    Yeah we've seen terminator, AI can and probably will have some non-working properties. Of course the point is to make it always be on our control. The thing is, AI would/could be as human mind, but just soooo much better, faster, stronger, wiser. This is why there's the danger of it getting out of control.

    I think the best way to avoid this is to make AI like humans. I mean, people usually don't kill each other cause we know it's wrong. If we can program moral values for it, it can be our friend. Then we could encounter other problems tho: should the machine have rights? Would it be like killing someone if you plugged the machine out?


    Call me naive (I do!), but I think that if we can get the AI to like us, it could even lead human kind. Yes, as a king or dictator even.
    The point is this: communism. I know you might be shouting "nooooooo" to this, but just listen.
    Communism is one brilliant way of building a society. Idea of everyone being equal is beautiful. The reason why it doesn't work (at the moment), is because people are bad and greedy. The lead of a communist country usually is corrupted and blinded by power. Communism is often associated with no freedom of speech etc.: this isn't the original idea of communism, the idea is equality. Restricting the f.e. freedom of speech have just been the greedy leaders way to shut their citizens down.
    Now, I'm not saying that it's exactly communism that is good for humans, I'm just saying that with AI there comes the possibility of a wise, neutral and incorruptible leader.
    (well yes, if AI becomes too much like a human it can even create feelings like greed for itself...that would suck XD)


    One more thing: AI could be a big part of evolution. Human evolution doesn't work the same way anymore since nature selection has been slowed down by making everything really easy - a big part of jobs today is in front of a computer, not hunting in the forest. AI could be considered as the next leap on human evolution, as well as prosthetic body parts and 3D-printed organs.


    I myself will probably go work with AI someday, would be a dream-come-true to me!

    AI has been the stuff of Science Fiction. The thing is though, that every scientific innovation we've ever made has had it's roots in fiction. When computers were first being developed in the 1920's, the idea of a mechanical person which interacted with humans was already in print. By the 1950's the idea of a sentient computer with emotions and feeling was in the TV series Twilight Zone.

    The first decision-making computer programs that I'm aware of were done by NASA in the 1970's for the object avoidance program in the Voyager spacecraft. Essentially, if something gets close, fire thrusters and move away... and very little else. Chess programs in the early 1980's was another step in this direction as the IBM PC became more popular, collimating in the best-selling computer game "Battle Chess". This branched off to decision making game programs and got REALLY complicated as Real-Time Strategy games such as StarCraft took off. In particular, StarCraft would have close to 30 different AI scripts and alter the script based on the reactions of it's opponent much like a Chess engine.

    No, the NES R.O.B peripheral is not as bad as Data's brother Lore, or as gruesome as the ED-209 which tried to replace Robocop... but it sure was something you could put in your home and interact with. Nowadays robot kits with primitive decision-making properties are available in $20 kits. If you're ambitious, buy an Arduino and convert your favorite RC tank or truck toy into something more worthwhile...

    Beyond that though, now we have the Japanese developing sex robots which can actually speak, move, and blow your mind before you pass out. What's going to happen when she starts cleaning the kitchen and brings you a sandwich? And what will happen when she gets turned off at night to charge her batteries, and someone walks into the house and reprograms her to kill you in your sleep after the next time she blows your mind?

    I'm having the craziest chills atm...

    Also, Ex Machina comes to mind.
    Decide your meaning.
    After that your every action should be to accomplish that.
