Six major inventions made by humans. Is A.I. Androids next?

The Hawking Theory

Stephen Hawking believes Artificial Intelligence is needed and, in fact, essential to sustaining human life in the not so distant future. He does warn against Super AI.I. if you will and says it should be monitored and regulated constantly. Sir Stephen Hawking is a genius and he says if the machine gets smarter than a human then we are bye-bye! Hawking believes that deep space has Aliens and that we have to utilize A.I. in order to discover that and/or discover them. Hawking is in constant study when it comes to this discussion so I felt compelled to include him in this article. I would recommend reading more on Hawking and A.I. as it is very compelling.

Asimo by Honda

ASIMO can do stuff such as: kick a ball, go up and down stairs as well as pour a drink and serve a human as well as thank them or answer any questions you may have.

Thoughts From Bill Gates

Bill Gates, of Microsoft, has long maintained that A.I. was the future but he also warns of its potential dangers just like Sir Stephen Hawking. Do not give a robot the ability to fully learn at a genius level because then the machine will be smarter than humans and it could be horrible for our planet as a whole. Using A.I. Android people to take orders at a fast food joint is awesome but using them with weapons or in law enforcement could be deadly. Gates is interesting to listen to on this topic considering Microsoft uses A.I. and seems to be advancing in that realm rapidly to say the least. So we shall see how they go but what do you guys think of Microsoft and there A.I. goals.

Robotics are Here!

Robots that can learn on there own is a dangerous thing unless completely monitored. Do not get out smarted by computer technology.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence is when any machine shows its own intelligence and smarts. Being able to learn without having programmed knowledge but rather acquiring knowledge by learning just like us! Sound promising or does it sound like more than we can handle? Mankind does not need a Terminator population dominating us or a situation like that on the film I Robot. It may sound farfetched but in reality something similar could happen. The robot could start to envy its position and wonder why humans are there superiors. That is when problems can arise. Serious problems. It could also come in the form of a computer virus. What is your theory? Anything can sound out there but we are learning to do everything and quickly at that but we do not need a robot learning at a pace that we can not keep up with.

Super A.I. ?

How far is too far when it comes to Artificial Intelligence. Never let the machine become the leader.

Is It Dangerous?

Artificial Intelligence can be a great thing and the biggest invention in mankind. But, it has to be controlled at all costs and at all times. Having computers think for you and learn on there own is fantastic but if you give a self driving car more smarts than a person then it may wreck and try to harm you. Think of the film that stars Will Smith called I Robot. We can eventually get to that stage unless we exercise common sense and control the situation. In manufacturing I see why robots are needed but as far as the Military goes that is ridiculous. If they are equipped with loaded guns they may end up turning and shooting everyone.

Self Driving Cars

Autonomous Autos are starting now and in the future we will have cars completely driving you around. This is a form of A.I. As the car learns from you it play the music you like and anticipate places that you like, etc. Do not get me wrong, I am in favor of Smart cars, self-driving cars, electric cars and in the not too distant future, flying cars. Having said that nothing can beat arm and leg robots trying to exterminate you except maybe a car going 120 MPH and it does not slow down. What do you do then? On the other hand, A.I. technology has been outstanding thus far in many fields including the automotive industry.

A.I. in Daily Life

Siri on the I-Phone, the Amazon Echo, take your pick. Both are limited forms of A.I. Once you attach arms and legs and an even more sophisticated brain with A.I. then the problems could potentially be disastrous. Small forms of A.I. are really nice to be honest and I am all for it.

It is What it Is

Like the title says, Is it a good or bad thing? You tell me. Leave your opinion in the comment section at the bottom of this article. Most people agree with minimal A.I. and I understand why but it could turn into major problems?

Cleverbot

A Cleverbot can actually maintain a conversation with an adult and it is a form of Chatterbox. This bot has no answers to your questions in any form via programming as it learns as it listens. Many other A.I. gadgets have come forth such as A.I. from Microsoft and Google. A.I. that lets the computer beat pro Chess players and such.

Final Thoughts on A.I.

I am at a loss as what to think because on the one hand A,I, can be great for humanity but because of our greed it could also alter or end humanity, at least as we know it. I know it sounds scary to me but as long as it is regulated fiercely Super A.I. even is acceptable in my opinion on the matter.
