When Is the Revolution Going to Come?
Elon Musk and Bill Gates joined Stephen Hawking in voicing concern that Artificial Intelligence, AI, will overtake man in the near future. Hawking felt that would come within the next 100 years. Musk was worried that Google might unleash the AI monster by accident. Gates feels it will start off great before the AI advances enough to turn on us.
All three agree on the general idea that if we don’t use care and caution as we create AI we may soon bow down to it. All three are some of the smartest men on the planet and it is hard to argue against them if they say something is going to happen and I don’t plan on it. I agree the robots are coming. I just reach a different conclusion. They say caution, I say, “All hail our new robot overlords.” After all, they’ve already taken up sword fighting (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cR-YlZ9NdIA ).
