Something I’m very passionate about: Science and Technology are evolving every day and most people aren’t paying it enough attention.It may sound like something out of a science fiction novel to people who haven’t kept up with what’s happening, but technology and artificial intelligence have come a long way and it’s predicted that we will have human-level artificial intelligence in this century. Shortly after, artificial intelligence that exceeds our own. Who’s to say what will happen after that? There are many theories put out by many different scientists and I’ll put links to some important pages below.
The theoretical point in the future where artificial intelligence exceeds our own is commonly referred to as the “singularity”.
Some theories state this will be a dangerous time. With an intelligence so much greater than our own, how would we be able to control it? It would be sort of like a pet dog or cat trying to control us.Others suggest it will be a progressional transition into humans adapting with the technology. (Favored by me).With science going further with using artificial limbs and organs, we would essentially become cyborgs. Humans as we are now would cease to exist.MIRI aims to “ensure that the creation of smarter-than-human intelligence has a positive impact. We aim to make intelligent machines behave as we intend even in the absence of immediate human supervision.”I’ve recently signed up as a volunteer for MIRI and hope to get an internship there with enough volunteer credit, and when I finish my degree maybe work with them even more.
If you’d like to learn more about MIRI or The Singularity here are some great links:
