Vladimir Putin calls for a series of ‘moral rules’ to guide the interaction between people and AI
It is a problem that some of the greatest spirits in the world are currently facing, from Bill Gates to Elon Musk.
Elx Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, described AI as our “greatest existential threat” and compared its development as “calling the demon.”
He believes that super intelligent machines can use people as pets.
Professor Stephen Hawking said it is an “almost certainty” that a major technological disaster will threaten humanity in the next 1,000 to 10,000 years.
They can steal jobs
More than 60 percent of people fear that robots will lead to fewer jobs in the next ten years, according to a 2016 YouGov survey.
And 27 percent predict that the number of jobs will decrease ‘a lot’. Previous research suggests that employees in the administration and services sector will be the hardest hit.
In addition to a threat to our jobs, other experts believe that AI can become “rogue” and become too complex for scientists to understand.
A quarter of the respondents predicted that robots would be part of everyday life in just 11 to 20 years, while 18 percent predicted that this would happen within the next decade.
They can become ‘rogue’
Computer scientist Professor Michael Wooldridge said AI machines can become so complicated that engineers don’t fully understand how they work.
If experts do not understand how AI algorithms work, they cannot predict when they will fail.
This means that cars without drivers or intelligent robots can make unpredictable decisions that are ‘out of character’ at critical moments, which can put people at risk.
The AI behind a driverless car could, for example, choose to turn around in pedestrians or crash into barriers instead of driving sensibly.
They can destroy humanity
Some people believe that AI will completely destroy people.
“Ultimately, I think human extinction is likely to occur, and technology is likely to play a role,” said DeepMind’s Shane Legg in a recent interview.
He distinguished artificial intelligence, or AI, as the “greatest risk for this century.”
Musk warned that AI is more a threat to humanity than North Korea.
‘If you don’t worry about AI safety, you should do that. Much more risk than North Korea, “the 46-year-old wrote on Twitter.
‘Nobody likes being regulated, but everything (cars, planes, food, drugs, etc.) that is a danger to the public is regulated. AI should be too. “
Musk has consistently argued for governments and private institutions to apply AI technology regulations.
He has argued that controls are needed to protect machines against human control
