Kurzweil discusses the future of artificial intelligence in Friday's US diplomatic relations association. Although he accepted Tesla CEO Elon Musk proposed super AI has a potential threat, but he claimed that if that happens, humans will be able to overcome it.
He pointed out: "There is always an inherent risk in the advancement of science and technology, and artificial intelligence should no longer be seen as a threat. Technology has always been a double-edged sword. The fire brings us warmth and food, but it also burns us The house of World War II resulted in 50 million deaths, of course, the result of technology was caused.
Turning to fears that intelligent automation may replace humanity, Kurzweil repeatedly emphasized his previous answers to the future. He argues that while there will be unemployment, new posts will also be created. But exactly what position he is not clear, because that kind of situation has not happened.
He put forward his main point of view: "Artificial Intelligence will benefit our humankind as much as the previous technologies, and I do not think Artificial Intelligence will replace us but enhance humanity, just as success has now come." For Kuzweh If, however, this singularity comes, it will not happen that the machinery replaces human consequences. He predicted that it would be more likely that there would be a state of symbiosis in which machines would elevate human capabilities.
Kurzweil predicts a hybrid artificial intelligence will come out in the 2030s. This kind of artificial intelligence allows people to tap their own brain for direct accesscloud service, With what he calls a neocortical connection. Kurzweil previously predicted that human augmentation will come from nano-robots, and he thinks nano-robots will shuttle through the body by 2030.
In short, according to Kurzweil's thoughts, as singularities and artificial intelligence emerge, humans and machines will converge. Kurzweil said that we have a similar experience with the smart phone, he called the smart phone brain extension tool. He claims: "Without today's brain extension tool who can do his job?"
Kurzweil said that in addition to the human brain connected to the machine through cloud services, these neocortical technologies also connect people to the cortex of other people. As a result, people will become smarter and more interesting. Technological singularity will lead to more diverse thinkers, but will also enable human expertise to achieve deeper levels of development.
Kurzweil predicts that the rise of artificial intelligence will not be eliminated by humankind, as humans become smarter as the machines get smarter. Of course, this is just one of his speculations, we can only hope that Kurzweil's guess is correct.
