Artificial Intelligence: Slaves or Partners?

Sophisticated artificial intelligence is already an integral part of our lives.

Three years ago, we used AI almost exclusively for translation, intelligent web search algorithms and mediocre image-recognition.

Now we are seeing a massive adoption of virtual assistants, self-driven drones, AI-empowered smartphone applications, and all industries are creating complex problem-solving software to replace most tasks assigned to a human worker.

According to sales reports by the world’s smartphone manufacturers, half of the 2.5 billion smartphones in the world have an integrated virtual assistant.

Also, at the end of 2018, there were about 100 million smart speakers in homes and Canalys experts think there will be 225 million by the end of 2020.

We also know that most car manufacturers in the world will sell level 4 and 5 self-driving cars in 2021.

In the next few years, we’ll see exponential adoption of artificially intelligent hardware and software in every aspect of our personal and professional lives.

When AGI emerges, it will accomplish 100% of paid human tasks better than we could and tackle new tasks emerging from new processes, technologies and scientific discoveries better than we could too.

We’ll have many critical decisions to make, and due to the exponential development and deployment of AI technologies, we won’t have much time to figure things out.

We give it eyes (cameras), ears (microphones), touch (contact sensors) and several other senses (gyroscopes for balance, mass spectrometers for smell and taste, and so on…).

Though over the years, we’ve become kinder in our interactions with other animals, we still put other primates in cages, use them in non-consensual lab-experiments and train them to do tricks.

A little over 100 years ago, many humans still considered some races inferior and undeserving of the same rights as the powerful majority.

Looking at the official Webster definition of slavery: “a person held in servitude as the chattel of another” (chattel is a term used to define ownable items besides real estate and objects).

The question is, should we be looking at these AI tools the same way as we look at the gorilla caged at the local zoo, at the household pet or as a piece of equipment with absolutely no rights?

Since today’s AI don’t have feelings per se, we don’t think twice before asking Siri or Alexa for the weather report.

I’m sure we’re comfortable if Google Assistant doesn’t send us an invoice after it does a great job ordering us a pizza.

Does the highly intelligent construct, capable of doing complex brain surgery better than any human surgeon, have rights and obligations equal to a human?

We can program AI to simulate human behavior, even human emotions, like actors on a stage, without the AI suffering the emotional consequences we do whenever we feel negative emotions.

imagine, we’ll feel sympathy and compassion towards AI that imitate us in form or intellect, but that seems to be a human reaction we have learned in our society.

Many cultures today still maintain women don’t have the emotional or intellectual capacity to drive or get a university degree, yet the facts clearly show women are just as capable as men in every way.

However, if we want to live in a world where artificial intelligence is doing all the necessary work, liberating humans from forced labor, we’ll require a reasonable number of self-aware robots.

These powerful self-aware learning AI need the ability to create the next generation of AI to keep up with technologies and scientific understanding of the universe.

It may take the action that will incur less damage on its chassis instead of considering whether one of the accident victims is young, or ancient, for instance.

Just like a human being, a properly “raised” AI that has learned the best social behavior, may be an excellent productive part of our world.

It may not care whether it exists or not, due to its programming, but if we opt to delete its program and it asks to stay alive, should we accept its right to live?

We must treat our surroundings with respect and give every intelligent being the space it needs to thrive and avoid suffering at all cost.
