Yes, the scientists believe that AI is the way forward. They can do a great deal of benefit to humanity. But I am scared and worried.
AI can change people’s lives but what if they become so advanced, they become self aware and get some sort of consciousness.
I have to back to the old Terminator. Yes, it is deemed to be science fiction but what if the writer of that film had an insight into what may happen in the future.
Humans can put restrictions on AI by writing programmes to stop the AI doing things but what if AI becomes so advanced that they work their way around such programmes.
If they then become “self aware”, humanity is in grave danger.
We have learned that science fiction has become science fact so many times.
Humans are arrogant in believing that they can “restrict” AI from becoming what I am very scared of. I will go further; I will never live to a ripe old age. Even if humanity is not wiped out, it will be enslaved.
