Former Secretary of Condition Hillary Clinton told radio sponsor Hugh Hewitt that humanity is definitely âracing headfirst into a new era of artificial intelligenceâ without sufficient preparations showing how that will impact the world.
âBill Gates, Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, a lot of really smart people are sounding an alarm that weâre not hearing,â Clinton said in an interview promoting the girl new book. âAnd 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.â
Artifical intelligence (AI) is theÂ 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 includingÂ smart homeÂ assistants and automatedÂ 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.
âWe just donât knowâ? ***************************)
Contrary in order to Clintonâs claim, Microsoft co-founder Costs Gates hasnât actually said that âartificial intelligence is not our friend.âÂ In the forewordÂ of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadellaâs book, Gates wrote that will âAI is on the verge of making our lives more productive and creativeâ while also highlighting natural challenges: Â âHow do we help people whose jobs are replaced by AI agents and robots? Will users trust their AI agent with all their information?â
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 âfundamental risk to the existence of civilizationâ 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 âcould be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. Or the worst. We just donât 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.â
âWe are totally unpreparedâ
Speaking in order to Hewitt, Clinton highlighted the potential unfavorable consequences of integrating AI straight into society.
âYou know, what are we going to do when we get driverless cars?â she continued. âIt 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.â
Whatever happens, Hawking stressed, humans ought to be ready.
âUnless we learn how to prepare for, and avoid, the potential risks, AI could be the worst event in the history of our civilization,â he toldÂ the Internet Summit technology conference in The capital city, Portugal earlier this month. âIt brings dangers, like powerful autonomous weapons, or new ways for the few to oppress the many. It could bring great disruption to our economy.â
