With companies and organisations alike developing A.I systems, it is hard to keep track of and keep in check these new systems. According to Demis Hassabis, head of Google’s learning business and a world renowned authority on Artificial Intelligence, states that like any new powerful technology, A.I has to be used responsibly as if used irresponsibly it can cause great harm.
Like Demis, there are others that call for debate on the topic of Artificial Intelligence and what can be done to ensure the safety of the public whilst being sure to not hinder the growth and research into the topic. One things researches and A.I experts fear is the misrepresentation of A.I to the public. From movies like iRobot and Terminator it paints A.I in a pretty negative light, and before i started these blogs i thought A.I was all bad. Don’t get me wrong, that A.I has the potential to be catastrophic, but it also could be the best thing to happen to humanity since the discovery of electricity.
Artificial Intelligence could provide us insight into areas we hadn’t thought to look into and answer questions we haven’t even asked.
