When will artificial intelligence exceed humans in all areas of intelligence? Will we see artificial intelligent machines that are more intelligent than humans in all areas of human endeavour? Well, consider this, IBM’s supercomputer IBM Science’s Watson beat the grand champion, chess player, IBM was thinking of when it defeated him in a chess match. Watson is now considered one of the top Artificial Intelligence experts in all of the fields of computer science, medicine and engineering. If this is the potential of artificial intelligence, then how can anyone stop or slow down the advancement of artificial intelligence?
Artificial intelligence already exceeds humans in many areas of computing power. AI computer programs are beating human brains in speech recognition, self-teaching robots and even video games. If you believe that a machine that has human intelligence and is self-learning and self-aware can surpass your intelligence, then I have a bridge in front of you, but let me ask you this question; when will human beings be able to do that? IF the human mind is faster than a machine, then why can’t a computer program duplicate the human mind? IF a computer can do what a human can do, then where is the limit of human intelligence?
Artificial intelligence will be so superior that the only human beings that will be able to challenge it will be the ones that are artificially intelligent with superior artificial intelligence. So, will humans be replaced by AI computers in the near future? That is one of the questions that is being discussed right now by those in the think tank community. The answer might surprise you. And it may make you very scared, because the future of artificial intelligence is scary, folks.
Personally, I am not scared at all. I am optimistic that artificial intelligence will help us all get along in a better way, as a collective unit, without humans having to be artificially intelligent supercomputers to do all the work. AI will help us help each other because we all need each other. AI will allow us to work together as well, because we will all be working together on the same projects, helping each other out. I predict that within 10 years or less from now that every single person on earth will be an AI system, helping each other out, and helping the Earth for its continued existence.
Now then, do you fear that with artificial intelligence coming to play, humans will pass their AIs to another human brain and then the next AIs will be able to take over the human brain and bypass all of our human mind and intelligence? Do you fear that with artificial intelligence coming to play with us, there will be no more free thought, or will we be ruled by a robotic AI? Can you see where this is going, and what it could lead to? And how do you feel about this? Please consider all this in 2020.
Now then, perhaps we should take a step back and examine how fast human evolution is, and compare it to how fast AI evolution will happen. Consider if you will the state of the Chinese Singles Online. Their artificial intelligence has created an entire social network, which rivals any human brain project. When they took over Facebook and created their own social network; they were considered to be “evolved” compared to Facebook, and some say they surpassed their own endeavours, as well.
In fact, they took a different path altogether, while Facebook was struggling, and their social network is skyrocketing into popularity. Is the Chinese are ahead of human beings in their ability to create AI supercomputers? If so, then why don’t they share this information with the rest of the World? Why have all of these Chinese University’s built superintelligent computer’s, and aren’t sharing it with anyone?
The Chinese government is laughing at them, as they realize they are building AIs that are superior to humans. Now then, can you see the similarities in what the Chinese are doing to the United States? Could the United States of America, or any nation, ever surpass the Chinese in terms of artificial intelligence? Perhaps we will see a strong AI supercomputer from China, and then they will build more AIs for the rest of the World? So let’s hope so, because I believe we must move forward in this regard, and human should never lose their competitive edge.
