Facebook, one of the most beloved and famous social media platform which has over 1.94 billion monthly active users as per March 2017, with five new profiles being created every second, leading it to over 300 petabytes of data every day. To analyse so much of data Facebook uses some high-tech systems, to keep Facebook always on the go. One of such technology is chatbots which work on Artificial Intelligence(AI).
Researchers at the Facebook AI Research Lab (FAIR) noticed some unusual and strange deviations in its chatbots, it was communicating in its own unique language. Amazing right! but also concerning at the same time.
Facebook developers immediately shut down the artificial intelligence engine after knowing that AI has created its own language that we humans can’t understand.
This phenomenon just gives us a glimpse of what will be our future like, may be it will be more like some super-hit sci-fi movie, fierce like Terminator or perfectly tailored like the first half of I, Robot.(where AI will be more for mankind than anything else.)
Imagine the world where everything is controlled by high-tech computers, the world where privacy will be just a myth, it’s horrifying isn’t it?
The AI is more like a time-bomb, which blinds human beings with its different coloured wires, one wrong cut and it’s all over.
It could be the end of the human race, as Stephen Hawking once said: “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.”
Will it be the brighter world in future, who knows?
The truth is, we as the smartest species on this planet have limited knowledge of what artificial intelligence can do.
Anyways, let’s read some quotes by famous personalities on Artificial Intelligence to make our own opinion on it.
And let us know by commenting below.
“Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended.”
“The pace of progress in artificial intelligence (I’m not referring to narrow AI) is incredibly fast. Unless you have direct exposure to groups like Deepmind, you have no idea how fast—it is growing at a pace close to exponential. The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five-year timeframe. 10 years at most.”
— Elon Musk
“We must address, individually and collectively, moral and ethical issues raised by cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence and biotechnology, which will enable significant life extension, designer babies, and memory extraction.”
“There is a real danger that computers will develop intelligence and take over.”
— Stephen Hawking
