Artificial Intelligence Vs Artificial Intelligence

The human mind has been constantly evolving and advancing over the generations, and as it advances, so does its creations. Artificial intelligence was created as an attempt to replicate human intelligence; however, it’s capabilities have surpassed initial human intentions by unimaginable means. Modern day computers can compute algorithms and execute calculations considerably quick compared to the average human. Technology has been rapidly advancing, to a point where artificial intelligence could potentially gain consciousness and be able to think on its own. Currently, society’s artificial intelligence is syntax based, meaning that the computers can only compute algorithms given by humans. However, for artificial intelligence to be a true replica…show more content…
Essentially, this means humanity is attempting to create a being that can think for itself and have emotions, but is not biological. If this technology is developed, it could mean that big corporations can use this technology to manipulate the public. If artificial intelligence becomes able to detect emotions from humans, companies can use this tactic to make people believe that these robots care for them. Detecting emotions can lead to synthetic reactions from the robot, which can be misinterpret as real emotions from the artificial technology. Robots will never feel all human emotions because they are not biological creatures, for example robots can never feel hunger because they do not have hormones or DNA (Maciamo Hay). Additionally, if big companies get their hands on strong A.I., they can truly learn about human emotions and thinking processes from a logically point of view. Researching and testing on strong artificial intelligence will allow these companies to gain information about the human mind and how it functions; this can be dangerous because they could potentially use this newly found information against the public. Catering their ads, products, and services to human weaknesses is now possible through strong A.I. This new form of data can be implemented into every new design and business plan rendering humans to become…show more content…
Currently, computers can calculate and run algorithms much faster than humans, and if strong A.I. was to exist, these technological beings would be intelligently superior to human kind. Elon Musk, a world renowned technological genius, fears Silicon Valley’s rush into artificial intelligence, because he believes it poses a threat to humanity (Dowd, Maureen). Musk stated that “one reason to colonize Mars – so that we’ll have a bolt-hole if A.I. goes rogue and turns on humanity” (Dowd, Maureen). The possibility of this outcome is real because if strong A.I. was to exist, they have the potentially to surpass humans in every aspect. The main difference between A.I. and humans is that humans are conscious beings that can think for themselves. If A.I. was to develop consciousness, they would be able to do every task much more efficiently than humans. According to Stephen Hawking, “If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI that improves and replicates itself. This will be a new form of life that outperforms humans” (Sulleyman, Aatif). This world-renowned physicist believes that A.I. will begin to self-improve upon themselves through an algorithm that allows A.I. to learn. Ultimately, this technological being will advance to a point where it realizes that it does not need humans anymore. “Back in 2015, he [Stephen Hawking] also
