AI News, Artificial Intelligence and the End of Civilisation artificial intelligence

Will artificial Intelligence really spell the end of the human race?

From our mobile phone’s virtual assistant to our interactions with companies via chatbots and online tools such as facial recognition, tailored news feeds and recommended products, AI, we are being told, is becoming increasingly prevalent within our everyday lives.

As early as 2014, Stephen Hawking was warning that “the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.” Meanwhile technologist Elon Musk in 2017 stated that “AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.” Musk has also repeated such warnings more recently, stating that the development of AI “poses a greater risk than nuclear weapons.” These are concerning warnings for the future development of AI that we should not ignore.

OpenAI claims that this project will “ultimately provide everyone with the economic freedom to pursue whatever they find most fulfilling.” While for most of us, the concept of AI which replicates and exceeds the capacity of the human brain is hard to conceptualize, it is argued that such power would be able to be utilised to tackle climate change, improve healthcare for all and to personalize education.

As an open letter from the Future Life Institute, started in 2015 and signed by over 8000 technologists, scientists and others including Bill Gates and Steve Wozniak, states: “because of the great potential of AI, it is important to research how to reap its benefits while avoiding potential pitfalls.” This is perhaps the point that Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and others like them are trying to make.
