    Default Can AI Wipe Out The Human Race?

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete...s-mankind.html

    Google has set up an ethics board to oversee its work in artificial intelligence.

    The search giant has recently bought several robotics companies, along with Deep Mind, a British firm creating software that tries to help computers think like humans.

    One of its founders warned artificial intelligence is 'number 1 risk for this century,' and believes it could play a part in human extinction

    'Eventually, I think human extinction will probably occur, and technology will likely play a part in this,' DeepMind’s Shane Legg said in a recent interview.

    Among all forms of technology that could wipe out the human species, he singled out artificial intelligence, or AI, as the 'number 1 risk for this century.'

    The ethics board, revealed by web site The Information, is to ensure the projects are not abused.

    Neuroscientist Demis Hassabis, 37, co-founded DeepMind Technologies just two years ago with the aim of trying to help computers think like humans.

    Me ridiculous? Consider your avatar. Last season the Redskins came in just ahead of the joke team known as the Houston Texans. Even the talentless Raiders did better.

    I read the thread title as "Can I Wipe Out The Human Race?"

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    Not really because AI can not be held responsible for its actions. The creators of AI would be responsible..

    You know what they're saying. It's like asking, "Can atomic bombs wipe out the human race?" We all know who makes these bombs. Not aliens, and not some ancient civilization existing deep inside the Earth.

    However, the AI they're talking about would be the ultimate product: a device that is as or more intelligent than humans. We're not talking about human mimicry, but a machine so advanced that it can no longer be distinguished from any other intelligent, self-aware being.

    AI wouldn't have much common sense/common sense wouldn't be natural to AI. It would have to be programmed anyway.

    Well yes, just as we're all "programmed" to learn from experience, and to learn the practices and ways of the cultures we all live in. The same would be true of AI.
