The power of Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is growing up fast, as are robots whose facial expressions can elicit empathy and make your mirror neurons quiver.Artificial intelligence is growing up fast, as are robots whose facial expressions can elicit empathy and make your mirror neurons quiver. A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.Anything that could give rise to smarter-than-human intelligence - in the form of Artificial Intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, or neuro science -based human intelligence enhancement - wins hands down beyond contest as doing the most to change the world. Nothing else is even in the same league.Artificial Intelligence leaves no doubt that it wants its audiences to enter a realm of pure fantasy when it identifies one of the last remaining islands of civilization as New Jersey.A lot of movies about artificial intelligence envision that AI's will be very intelligent but missing some key emotional qualities of humans and therefore turn out to be very dangerous.Most of the intelligence out there must be artificial intelligence. We keep looking for critters like us living on a planet like ours, where in fact the majority of the intelligence out there is not biological. That would be my argument..There are lots of examples of routine, middle-skilled jobs that involve relatively structured tasks, and those are the jobs that are being eliminated the fastest. Those kinds of jobs are easier for our friends in the artificial intelligence community to design robots to handle them. They could be software robots; they could be physical robots.I am suggesting that we recognize that in network and interface research there is something as profound (and potential wild) as Artificial Intelligence.It's going to be interesting to see how society deals with artificial intelligence, but it will definitely be cool..
