( A two minute read that could save your humanity)
There, not a day that Artifical Intelligence is not in the news – Social Media, Davos, TV, Magazines, Flipboard all telling us that we are going to be replaced by Robots.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, Creating a common future in a fractured world.
It seems that we are all to be made redundant, to live in a world run by Algorithms that have no conscious while our imaginations run wild.
In my last post ( Soon there will be no need to wait for the return of Jesus) I said: ” If you are expecting some kind of warning when computers finally get smarter than us, think again.”
You only have to look around you to realize that if we as a species continue to ignore the warning signs life its self will be hacked.
Then the question will be who or what should own the data.
Should it be a few Corporations that live in the cloud or should data that is biological in its nature be owned by all of us?
Algorithms without any human values or responsibility for their decisions are already making decisions on our behalf.
If this continues unabated without any form of regulation we are going to have a world of vast inequality and bias.
The programmes that will drive machines like robots in the near future will carry the contamination of the values of there owners.
Our ideas about responsibility are out of date.
Does our conscious rule what we are responsible for.
If we are just biological Algorithms is it our intelligence that gives us consciously or is it our imagination that is the governor or the other way around.
A question that has many answers but would you befriend a robot that has no responsibility.
If you had Alsimers you might as there is no end point in your life.
This is why we need to ensure that all Robotics ware their nonhumanity on their sleeves so we are fully aware of what association we have with AI.
We need new stories new thinking to match the new technology,
This Fourth Industrial revolution requires a solution that is global not a race to the bottom in a fragmented world.
It’s time to get our faces out of our smartphones and become smart before it’s too late.
All human comments appreciated. All like clicks chucked in the bin.
