With all of the technological advancements the question “Will AI take over the world?” is a serious question. Would that even be possible, and if so what would the end result look like?
What is my opinion?
Will AI Take Over the World
Yes. Unfortunately, our superior intellect has already started to make this happen. Luckily, Artificial Intelligence currently behaves exactly like the humans that make it… for now.
The world that it owns
We are extremely close to a Technological Singularity. Meaning that we are already creating an Artificial Consciousness.
Those words are huge and I hate them. Normal people don’t speak like that, but what you may have heard about is an algorithm.
We allow algorithms to help us learn, to show us relevant advertising, and to even set up behavioral and spending habits.
We use the algorithms to help us fight crime, and set people up for success.
Algorithms at work
When I was younger I remember taking placement tests throughout school. One thing I noticed was that a few months after these tests you would notice people being pulled from your classes. One group was ‘the slow’ class, and the other group was advanced placement. Then all the rest were average people.
The average people weren’t necessarily average, they were outside of this algorithm and couldn’t be placed. Because the 2 groups were actually treated very similar… however we thought they were completely different.
The ‘slow’ group had smaller class sizes… the advanced placement? Smaller class sizes.
The ‘slow’ group were deemed more visual learners… advanced placement? they got to go on field trips and have awesome hands-on experiments so they could see what they learned in action.
The fact is this algorithm is completely wrong because even the average kids would benefit from these tactics.
Closing for now…
So how has AI taken over? I guess you need to tune in tomorrow to find out.
