Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. It is used by powerful brands like Netflix and Amazon to analyze the reactions and preferences of their customers. However, there are some question marks about this technology. Some people believe that this technology may be harmful or somewhat not useful for us. This leads us to questions like “Does AI that fascinates us these days come along without any harm?”, or “Why some people think so?”
Making robots that can make decisions on their own can look marvelous for technological development. However, pioneers in this area like Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking believe that artificial intelligence can be harmful for humanity and they think that we should take precautions considering the adaptation of AI into our daily lives. Even the idea of developing a large, red button to stop all the functions of artificial intelligence, even when necessary, has been put forward. So they think that measures should be taken for this. Well, does artificial intelligence really harm humanity?
Elon Musk is one of those who thinks that artificial intelligence can be dangerous because they are emotionally deprived and that they can make decisions leading to dangerous situations. Musk thinks that artificial intelligence technology can develop much faster than us and take control on our lives. On the other hand, Nick Bostrom, a digital philosopher, argues that artifical intellegent will help people in every aspect of daily life. Moreover, he claimed that AI may fall in love with people and make them happier.
Also, Today’s investors find it favorable to invest in AI. Samsung, Microsoft and Sony have announced that they have been working on new AI projects. Moreover, only US invest $ 28 billion a year in artificial intelligence technology and it is growing day by day.
As a result, it is entirely up to you to consider artificial intelligence as good or bad, considering all these possibilities. No one can know what will happen in the future but we can recommend you to watch movies that will deepen your ideas about AI like ‘Westworld’ and ‘Artificial Intelligence’.
