Artificial Intelligence will kill us: Jay Tuck

Artificial Intelligence will kill us: Jay Tuck

“Artificial intelligence is smarter than you are.. In fact a lot of people who work in artificial intelligence believe that artificial intelligence is thousand times smarter than we are. It will be moving at speeds that are a hundred thousand times as fast as we think and it will be digesting information and data a million times more than we can.

What is artificial intelligence? There are a lot of confused ideas about this outside in the world. But the answer is very simple. It’s one sentence. Artificial intelligence is software that writes itself. It writes its own updates.

We normally tend to think of software is stuff that we created in the we wrote and the machines do what we tell them to do and we own it. This is not any longer truth. It writes itself at speeds that we can hardly comprehend people who write it know that you can take it apart again and figure out what it’s done. It writes independently, autonomously, develops its own way of thinking and there are dangers associated with that.

A lot of people ask when is going to happen when its artificial intelligence going to be smarter than us people. Some people say 50 years, some people say 30 years, some say five years. I say it already has surpassed us in many areas of our society.

  1. Much of what Jay is referring to is the use of AI by the military. This would seem to be inevitable. Whoever is the first to develop fully autonomous (i.e., independent of human control), lethal and advanced military forms of AI and robotics is going to dominate all battle scenarios. It is going to become futile to wage war against AI, and against a military power with the most advanced AI and military robotics. Current drone attacks would seem to be now based upon mobile phone, landline and Internet traffic, which is picked up by Echelon type AI systems and then relayed to human operators, without any form of ground intelligence from human sources.

    Currently, according to media reports, the British overseas military intelligence service, MI6, employs mostly females, and MI6 recruitment adverts indicate that probably the most common purpose of an MI6 employee is that of a translator. Thus we have an army of non-combatant translators merely passing on information to the military. Thus placing James Bond-type spies on the ground in foreign nations has been replaced with Echelon type observation. In the war between the modern human being and the religious fanatic, the religious fanatic has no hope of success; however, a current problem would seem to me, to be that the world’s most advanced military power (i.e., America) is a nation and government dominated by religious fanatics in control of AI.

    Currently, we have a mob-connected, casino-owning gangster capitalist, who is surrounded by billionaire gangster capitalists and religious fanatics, who are allied with the world’s major promoter of Islamic jihad, Saudi Arabia. So we have gangster Capitalists and Abrahamic religious savages in control of military AI.

  2. Depending on how you measure intelligence, it happened 50 years ago or it will never happen.

  3. Depends on the measuring cup used for counts.
    As memory for knowledge, already.
    As reliability, already.
    As faster with algorithms, done.

    As a being, aware of self, not until understanding of connectome involvement and emulation.

  4. What’s with all the fear-mongering articles? AI is nothing but statistics. You have the same chances of being killed by tensorflow than being killed by a large excel spreadsheet.

    1. you are right but some famous guys like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk are afraid too much though they are dealing with AI.

  5. I don’t distrust Musk or Hawking, but they are good on their respective fields. Being good in one area doesn’t make one expert in everything. We, however, tend to look upon important persons and demand answers from them. We asked Einstein about religion, and the Dalai Lama about quantum physics, and that’s a mistake. I understand their fears, but AI can be used to process large amounts of health data, thus saving lots of lives.

    The problem is not the tool; the problem is the mind using the tool. I can use a hammer to build a house or to bludgeon someone’s head. That doesn’t make hammers a danger.
