Hillary Clinton on Artificial Intelligence, AI

Hillary Clinton on Artificial Intelligence, AI

Former Secretary of Condition Hillary Clinton told radio sponsor Hugh Hewitt that humanity is definitely “racing headfirst into a new era of artificial intelligence” without sufficient preparations showing how that will impact the world.

“Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, a lot of really smart people are sounding an alarm that we’re not hearing,” Clinton said in an interview promoting the girl new book. “And their alarm is artificial intelligence is not our friend. It can assist us in many ways if it is properly understood and contained. But we are racing headfirst into a new era of artificial intelligence that is going to have dramatic effects on how we live, how we think, how we relate to each other.”

Artifical intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human cleverness processes â€? such as learning, thinking, and self-correction â€? by devices. The technology has advanced quickly in recent years, leading to innovations including smart home assistants and automated stock trading. At the same time, the particular evolution of AI has resulted in fears that AI could ultimately surpass human understanding and upend societies.

‘We just don’t knowâ€? ***************************)

Contrary in order to Clinton’s claim, Microsoft co-founder Costs Gates hasn’t actually said that “artificial intelligence is not our friend.” In the foreword of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s book, Gates wrote that will “AI is on the verge of making our lives more productive and creative” while also highlighting natural challenges:  “How do we help people whose jobs are replaced by AI agents and robots? Will users trust their AI agent with all their information?”

Tesla and SpaceX TOP DOG Elon Musk is perhaps the most apocalyptic voice when it comes to AI, asserting the fact that technology poses a “fundamental risk to the existence of civilization” and it is the most likely cause for Globe War III.

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking is ambiguous on AI, recently stating that creating efficient AI “could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. Or the worst. We just don’t know. So we cannot know if we will be infinitely helped by AI, or ignored by it and side-lined, or conceivably destroyed by it.”

‘We are totally unprepared’

Speaking in order to Hewitt, Clinton highlighted the potential unfavorable consequences of integrating AI straight into society.

“You know, what are we going to do when we get driverless cars?” she continued. “It sounds like a great idea. And how many millions of people, truck drivers and parcel delivery people and cab drivers and even Uber drivers, what do we do with the millions of people who will no longer have a job? We are totally unprepared for that. What do we do when we are connected to the internet of things and everything we know and everything we say and everything we write is, you know, recorded somewhere? And it can be manipulated against us.”

Whatever happens, Hawking stressed, humans ought to be ready.

“Unless we learn how to prepare for, and avoid, the potential risks, AI could be the worst event in the history of our civilization,” he told the Internet Summit technology conference in The capital city, Portugal earlier this month. “It brings dangers, like powerful autonomous weapons, or new ways for the few to oppress the many. It could bring great disruption to our economy.”
