Damage of the Artificial Intelligence
With more acceptance of artificial intelligence, many damages are expected to take place. However, since none of the national constitutions have recognized Artificial Intelligence (AI), it will be difficult for the human creations to assume responsibility over the damages caused. The damages include loss of control of humans over the universe as robots and computer software will take charge. AI is outsmarting humans in speech recognition by outstripping human control. There is fear that imminent dangers will face humans in the future including climate change and global financial crisis (Bostrom 129). It is ambiguous how humans will adapt to more automated and less human force required to work. All real systems fail because of faults within the components. The engineered elements are complicated as the faults within them. Artificial intelligence applies highly intricate approaches, which may require similar intricate solutions to problems as they arise (Korbicz 43). Increased artificial intelligence in weaponry might result in more wars as robots are assumed to take over control from humans.
Scientists like Stephen Hawking have welcomed the arrival of smart software but have warned of the danger of the artificial intelligence ending human race, as these creations are capable of outsmarting human beings in the their daily activities and responsibilities. AI is created to demoralize activities. For instance, the availability of independent weapons when left under control of wrong people may result in mass casualties (Korbicz 68). To overcome being under the control of the enemy, the weapons may be created to make them difficult to turn off. This would further shift the control to robots, which is a risky encounter. To achieve beneficial activities, the AI is designed to apply destructive methods. This damage has occurred when the goals of the AI are not aligned with human goals. For instance, an intelligent car can transport a person to the airport at a very high speed, which may be biologically unhealthy to the user.
Benefits of Artificial Intelligence
As technological encroachment is increasing, humankind is left to enjoy the benefits of this sentience, such as the performance of dangerous roles to humanity like blue-collar jobs. People enjoy their hobbies as these devices can perform the necessary daily activities. Emotionless labor force would be performed by the machines, which would save most companies the cost of team building activities (Kushman 49). Intelligent networks have enabled humanity to redirect packets in occurrences of network failure using highly developed engine rules. Economically, humans have salvaged lots of money, which could have been wasted on lending schemes. Using sets of rules, the aircrafts have been directed to appropriate gates, an act that has led to stagnating economy. Through advanced application of the AI, the virtual body can be easily managed. The application has further enabled the creations to assume skills and tasks previously absent within them. Humanity has managed to plan for the future using GPS systems. Smartphones are presently understanding speech and intentions. The AI algorithms can detect faces in pictures posted on social sites (Davidson 72). Through AI, millions of search results, books’ recommendations, and traffic predictions have been made possible. Languages can be translated easily while speed-ups in the personal computers can be made easily, as human operations have been detected. Medically, physicians are presently able to rate patients at higher risks of complications and those with serious medical side effects. Automatic cars have been invented with partial and no human oversight.
