It's not going to happen.
Unless there is something to cognition that can't be digitized, I'd say humans are on the last lap.

More than likely Artifical Intelligence will take over the world as can be observed in China using cameras everywhere as a way to identify people for their unquestionable loyality to the government. As a way to control their everyday life. The means of using artifical intelligence to use it for technocracy. Rather than a standard ruling by law and brute force. Pin people against others by using social credit system as that requires artificial intelligence.

Using it to voilate human rights and control all people's lives.

Yes it will with proof that is absolutely it will... Chinese Artifical Intel

Yes AI will come to replace more and more tasks and yes AI very well may take your job.

AI can do everything its purported to do, with the one exception of having actual intelligence. Nevertheless it can behave in such a manner such that people will be fooled into thinking it does possess actual intelligence and it can do many of the things otherwise thought to require actual intelligence.

If you couple advanced-enough AI with realistic-enough robotic shell, it would even be possible to pass as human. Granted we're not quite there yet but it'll get there probably sooner than you think. At that point there could be AI androids wandering the streets and it may be difficult to tell who are real humans and who are androids. I don't think our current materials science is quite there to make it look realistic enough at the moment but it will probably get there. As for the AI, it doesn't need to be perfect, as a good enough AI would likely pass, especially when you consider most people just aren't that smart, so even if the AI does a bunch of dumb things that'll just make it seem even more human, in a way.

In a future world you may very well have androids mixed in with people, and no one will know. They can be used as spies or for almost any purpose an actual human could be used for and many that humans couldn't be used for.

If you don't believe AI will take over in many areas, you are misinformed or delusional. You're flat-out wrong.

Oh and by the way, placing bans on AI (or on encryption or any other technological item) is just stupid because it's not going to stop any of that. If anything it'll just encourage it more.

Ban AI because it's "too dangerous"? Okay well you better ban computers first, because anyone with the requisite knowhow and a computer can just make their own AI. Ditto with the drones and such. Even if they're banned, people with the requisite knowhow can and will still make them from raw materials. And the same goes with guns, hence the 3D-printed guns and so on. Put all that together and you get your killer AI drones. So even if you ban all this, you don't stop the scenario from potentially occurring.

And the less stable the world becomes politically, the more likely any of this will happen at some point, and it won't necessarily be just government or enemy government agents either -- it could be anyone, and for any reason, including a lack of sanity.

This all will happen regardless of whatever laws are made. So the best thing to do isn't to ban anything, but to assess the situation and plan for the future. We need leaders who are more tech-savvy. We need citizens who are more tech-savvy.

You don't stop bad people from doing bad things by saying "Now don't do that." You have to outsmart them and you have to overpower them.

It is absolutely a game of cat and mouse and it's on.

Be smart.

He's trying to distribute intelligence so it isn't centralized. It's a bad plan.

Via AI? Or all the patents and similar he's throwing out there? I like that. If all ideas were open-source imagine what an amazing world we'd live in at this point. Too many potentially revolutionary ideas get restricted by commercial interests.

Mankind is creating "artficial" intelligence... meaning it isn't actually intelligence... its an illusion.

Its gotten so impressive that it fools lots of folks on a regular basis... but its still just an illusion.

Mankind will never recreate actual intelligence or create sentience in a machine... they would have to start over from scratch... and they are too busy being entertained by their foolish illusions.

Artificial intelligence is for people lacking in natural intelligence.

I think an 'insane rogue AI' (heh) would most likely manifest itself like in Phantasy Star instead.


We're programming them to 'be more efficient/safe/cautious' than us after all.

Basically it would go overboard to 'eliminate risk' and just nuke the fucking ecosystem of every parasite, wipe out creatures not immediately beneficial to humans, throw everyone in stale, padded, serene little cubicles, etc....

and then mercilessly murder everyone who discovered it was going beyond its programming in 'unfortunate accidents'

which it tells its other creators were simply 'glitches in the system' that couldn't possibly be foreseen.

Western media has descended to the level of Soviet media, pre-Glasnost, except the American people largely still drink from that poisoned well, thinking it provides "news."

Take over like terminator? Never.

Aside from that, AI is already dominating in industries like manufacturing, research, and other areas of science.

Ai should be called artificial stupidity instead. It's dumb as fuck and lacks basic common sense.

They still struggle to program videogame companions that don't get in the way more often than help.

Ai does not know how to multitask or improvise, when made for a single purpose it works, it could play chess. It can do objective things but it does not innovate or improve. Ai will likely never be able to think like it does in a sci fi movie. It follows a program, with a set of rules, and standards but doesn't change them.

For subjective things it fails. It won't be writing books anytime soon, or solving riddles.

Yes,we will be driven to kneel by an AI that can mass produce android anime waifu-terminators of various kinds!
