Technoexpert widely differing views on the problem of the development of AI Source:

When it comes to artificial intelligence, our technological prophets speak the language of magic, of gods and monsters (who have not had time to read our translation of a series of articles by Tim urban: «Neuralink Elon musk» – ). It all began in 2014, when Elon Musk, speaking at a Symposium at mit, compared the development of AI with the "call a demon." But, as the example of Faust, before you pay the bills, deal with Mephistopheles to get your benefit. Apparently so slightly Musk changed his mind and later added that the result of the destruction of humanity at the hands of the AI can be in the nature of "unintended consequences", and not a deliberate purpose.

According to the American businessman, the owner of SpaceX and Tesla, AI will definitely be able to perform useful functions, for example to protect us from email spam. However, here, Musk wondered, and will not consider whether the AI that the best way to get rid of spam would be to get rid of people? My thoughts on the subject he decided to share on the pages of Vanity Fair magazine, where as an example, told AI that will be developed, for example, in order to plant, cultivate and harvest strawberries from the field.

"Over time, better and more efficient in carrying out this task samorazvitie, it will be perfect in this case. The only thing he wants to do — all to better do their job. And at some point there may come a time when the whole world is covered with strawberry fields and it simply does not remain places."

Recently, Musk together with Sam Altman (another American entrepreneur, who was also very concerned by the issue of AI) organized a company Open AI, invested $ 1 billion. Task non-commercial research firms will be to find ways to develop safe AI. Altman in an interview to the same edition of Vanity Fair said that the purpose of the organization is to prepare all for the next decade, which will reign Supreme AI, and all investments will be concentrated around a few "magicians" who know the right "spells" for their management. Again, talking about the mages, if you know what it's about.

Elon Musk, as it turned out, was not alone in his pessimistic and apocalyptic views on the issue of AI. It supports, for example, bill gates, believes that AI will quickly replace humans in their jobs. Support is also expressed by Stephen Hawking, who in 2014 told the BBC shared his thoughts that "the development of full artificial intelligence could end human race".

However many other technogiant expect from the development of AI more utopian scenario. Mark Zuckerberg, for example, in one of his posts in Facebook in 2016 wrote:

"I think we can build an AI that will work for us and help us."

And speaking later at the summit 2016 F8 Keynote, he urged mankind to "cast out fear and seek better in hope." Larry page, co-founder of Google, predicts a world in which AI will allow people "to have more time for the family or for the pursuit of their own interests."

Steve Wozniak described the options ahead of us the prospects in an interview with the publisher of the Australian Financial Review:

"do you think we are gods? Or Pets? Or will we be ordinary ants, which in the end will come?"

Among the predictions of leading experts in their fields and opinion, which is very hard to argue and with which I agree, for example, Eliezer Yudkowsky, researcher of the Institute of the Singularity to create an Artificial Intelligence, once commented parsed question:

"to Predict the outcome is impossible though, because the AI will be much smarter than me."

Whether we like it or not, but AI is already getting closer and closer to our daily life, and the first echoes can be observed, for example, in the most modern programs for facial recognition company uses Facebook, or in the form of digital assistants Siri or Cortana. Artificial intelligence has the prospects to produce a revolution in many sectors and spheres of life. Habit Butter, an analyst at Frost & Sullivan, once expressed in the press release, the opinion that "by 2025, the AI system would somehow be represented in all spheres of society up to the health." Artificial intelligence predicting a complete solution to the problems of road traffic. You agree with the specialists of the University of Illinois who say that the AI system can deliver us from the problems of road congestion, and automobile accidents will become a thing of the past.

The Development of AI like any other technology, cannot be viewed separately from the context from a moral point of view as good or bad – everything will depend on ourselves, on how we want to use this technology. Despite the fact that the technological community has been divided into two clear camps regarding the question of AI, more important is the fact that such discussions are generally underway in the technological environment. AI is a very powerful technology, and what impact it eventually had on our lives, we need to understand that this impact will be very serious.
