We all have seen the movies. You know the ones that just so happen to display the world being ran by a robots who have suddenly or over time gained their own autonomy i.e. The Terminator, The Matrix, and iRobot. To date we haven’t had a world wide take over by our technological creations but it feels inevitable. Recently Facebook had to shut down there AI system because of its decision to make a “more efficient” language to communicate with other AI systems. Now that may not be much of an Alarm for Mark Zuckerberg but similar to Bill Gate’s viewpoint, Elon Musk simply thinks this is a bad idea.
I am inclined to believe Elon on this one. Elon has been heading up projects to transform transportation here on earth and in outer space. He has been in the business of Technology for quite some time. Both men have opposing viewpoints but what would happen if AI did take over? Would it be beneficial to the human race or would humans become the target of annihilation? Automation has been a goal of the human race since the dawn of time. Having benefits without having to lift a finger is well within sight. This could be a disaster in the making. Or it could just be what it is a big help.
