Who Determines The Boundaries of Artificial Intelligence?

What is Artificial Intelligence?

It is the science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs. It is related to the similar task of using computers to understand human intelligence, but AI does not have to confine itself to methods that are biologically observable.

Artificial Intelligence involves studying the problems the world presents to intelligence rather than studying people or animals. AI researchers are free to use methods that are not observed in people or that involve much more computing than people can do.

What is Intelligence?

Intelligence is the computational part of the ability to achieve goals in the world. Varying kinds and degrees of intelligence occur in people, many animals, and some machines.

The Artificial Intelligence Dynamics

We are engaged in a permanent dance with machines, locked in an increasingly dependent embrace.

Among all the technological dangers we face, the artificial intelligence problem is one that garners a lot of attention. In the short term, we worry about semi-intelligent UAV drones that make their own decisions about whom to kill. In the longer term (is it really the longer term?) we worry about the possibility of an intelligence explosion, when artificial general intelligence (AGI) systems come online and go into an upward spiral of self-redesign until they reach super intelligence.

It is possible that computers of the future will not merely carry out instructions but act on their own, taking logical decisions based on reason and guided by situations, which has so far been the preserve of humans. They will compute, assess, and act discerningly without interference largely. While this may sound a bit like science fiction, computers could soon reach such a stage

The problem of building a safe and friendly form of artificial intelligence is not about the technical problem itself, it is about the public’s oversight and response to the dynamics of AI. We, the public must be responsible leaders and creators of machines that can perform better in certain areas than us.

The challenge of rogue nations and the criminal intent is real. AI will become the new, improved Weapon of Mass Destruction.

I always wonder if all people really USE their intelligence. I once had an idea in my head for a novel (for teenagers). A computer programmed as the perfect mother control/guard/teach/warn children from the day they are born via a chip planted in the brain. And of course the result - revolt.

Interesting hub about artificial intelligence, dallas. We already have a lot of extremely clever computers. My father, who died in 1989, will not believe his eyes when he step into this world we have now, not to talk about my grandparents. Take care!

MartieCoetser,

Artificial Intelligence is the new frontier... We have a choice: To embrace and benefit from it, or to succumb to it to our chagrin..

An example is the beehive, or ant mentality. By themselves, they are "stupid." Collectively, they exhibit superior intelligence...

The challenge is here and now!

lookatmenow,

The future is here. The potential applications of Artificial Intelligence are abundant. They stretch from the military for autonomous control and target identification, to the entertainment industry for computer games and robotic pets. Lets also not forget big establishments dealing with huge amounts of information such as hospitals, banks and insurances, who can use AI to predict customer behaviour and detect trends.

As you may expect, the business of Artificial Intelligence is becoming one of the major driving forces for research.

The development or evolution of artificial intelligence is a reality. The fundamental processes for simulating humanlike thinking is very real.

Several problems emerge from this new form of technology, the first being someone will attempt to use this technology in a negative way-there is too much history to illustrate that this will not be a reality. Mankind seems to be incapable of not causing some sort of incidents, or problems.

Secondly the assumption that because the machine responds in a humanlike fashion it can be recognized or accepted as being human-Wrong, intellect alone does not make human beings. Wisdom must accommodate intelligence-take for example a young child who we classify as exceptionally intellectual, a child applying that knowledge to relationalships will not always bring about the best solution because the child does not have the wisdom to go along with their perceptions.

SpanStar,

Great valid points. Well said.

If history is an indicator of our future behaviors, there will be many challenges: from ethical to legal... The issues will surface that have not yet been anticipated. The unintended consequences may present opportunites, or "challenges."

We get to decide...

I concur with you Dallas93444. There will indeed be new challenges to face in the future and you strike me as someone looking forward to meeting those challenges.

SpanStar,

Change is constant. Being "aware" and eager to learn; I do eagerly anticipate the future.

Let's face it: we are all dying... some of us live.
