Dealing With Machine Intelligence Explosion. Machines, especially through the power of AI, will surpass humans in Intelligence, effectiveness, and functionality.
Though there are some areas where humans will hold the dominance; mostly areas that require feeling and emotion.But overall, machines will have capabilities that far surpass even the most Intelligent of humans.Areas like Computer Vision, Natural Language processing, problems that require optimization etc. will all add up to give Machines a dominating edge. Imagine when all this is then combined with Quantum Computing? Madd ohh!
Does this mean Machines will overtake the world in some Dystopian Hollywood style? The answer is, No.Nevertheless, even though Machines will not overrun the world as painted in numerous Hollywood movies, humans are still at existential risk if the development and applications of Artificial Intelligence are not well managed.
There are two main ways I believe we can contain and manage Machine Intelligence explosion.
1. Through Regulations that forces Machines to stay as machines no matter how smart they may become.
2. This is method actively suggested by Elon Musk, it involves integrating the Machines into our Biological and neurological functions (merging humans with machines).
Both methods listed above come with their own unique set of challenges. In coming posts on this series, I intend to share more deeply on the implications of following either approach.
Note: I believe there is a big difference between Intelligence & Wisdom. This is discussion for another post. Please do share your ideas and thoughts in the comments section on the issue of what happens when Machine Intelligence explodes far beyond human level Intelligence.
