Artificial intelligence is technology’s way of mimicking human beings and forges a new path for technological advancements because human beings are imperfect (Shaw, 2008). When we use AI technology, we can account for human error and fix the inconsistencies. When we use any form of technology, there are advantages that eliminate the risk human beings pose to themselves and other living beings.

Daniel Dong10/9/17The Potential Benefits and Ramifications of Artificial Intelligence, Artificial General Intelligence, and Artificial Superintelligence Often, when people think of artificial intelligences, they envision a malevolent machine akin to Skynet from The Terminator. However, such constructs are not the only types of artificial intelligence, nor are artificial intelligences necessarily ‘evil’. Artificial intelligences have no subjective feeling as humans do; they simply attempt to achieve their goal in the most efficient method available to them. Scientists have classified three different types of artificial intelligence, each having their own benefits and ramifications. The three different types of artificial intelligence being:
This paper will: define AI, discuss positives and negatives involved with implementing AI systems, explore several types of different ways AI equipped systems are tested, and venture into the current stage of AI systems primarily IBM’s Watson project. Artificial Intelligence (AI) Defined Artificial intelligence (AI) can simply be defined as “the application of human intelligence to computers” (Shelly & Vermaat 2010). John McCarthy, a professor at Stanford University in the Computer Science Department describes AI as, “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs. The similar task of using computers to understand human intelligence, but AI does not have to confine itself to methods that are biologically observable” (McCarthy 2007). The book Management Information Systems, written by Kenneth Laudon and Jane Laudon (2012) describes AI as, “technology, which consists of computer-based systems (both hardware and software) that attempt to emulate human behavior” (Laudon & Laudon, 2012, p. 457).
If each robot is specially set up to help with, for example, kidney transplant, the robot would be capable of being an expert and learning how to make these procedures more efficient. Some may argue that robots would be inadequate in the operating room because they may not recognize certain situations. How will we know what these systems can and cannot handle until we try? Scientists now are formulating a plan to program these machines with knowledge that would easily be retrievable. The scientist will word situations in a certain way so the robots can easily identify the information they need to solve the problem (Masci).
Although there are many more advantages than disadvantages in AI, there are still some potential threats such as AI malfunctions. Insight on the concept of “man vs. machine” will be a large role in controlling the advancements. The acceptance of AI is the primary intent of providing ethically sound information. Despite growing fears against AI, artificial intelligence is not a question of unethical humanity but one of scientific advancement, which will produce the ability to reach an alternative to human labor. The field of AI advancement was founded on the campus of Dartmouth College.
The human brain is a complex marvel capable of many processes. It can imagine, reason, produce works of great wonder, and make sense of intricate disciplines, such as politics or economics. Can the same be said for Artificial Intelligence (AI)? Can a robot, equipped with a sense of awareness and an ever growing base of knowledge, complete the same tasks more efficiently? Better yet, can AI be called into existence without looking at some of the problems inherently linked with intelligence surpassing that of humans?
However, these are merely situations that are can be unethical. People have been discussing about this topic a lot and some ethical concerns that will be humanoid robots and robots taking over the work industry. Ethics is according to Britannica (2015) is the “discipline concerned with what is morally good and bad, right and wrong.” This paper examines some of the ethical issues and sides that is happening because of (A.I.) First, humanoid robots has had many ethical problems. Now with robots that
Another theory is that the mind is made of some “extraordinary form of matter” like that which was used to build Pinocchio. Perhaps brain tissue, as this form, emits the mind? If we accept the fact that something physical and not immaterial allows humans to be intelligent, then perhaps it isn’t some unexplainable material, and instead it is the patterning of the material. The information is what is important, not some magic material or immaterial orb. Information and human intelligence do not come from sheer chance.
Therefore, the ethical question whether robots should be replaced by humans is evaluation by three sources that giver their perspective on this issue. This ethical question is found in Alone Together: Why we Expect More From Technology and Less from Each Other, by Sherry Turkle, a book Forces of Production, by David Noble, and a scholarly article “A Survey of Socially Interactive Robots,” by is written by Terrence Fonga, Illah Nourbakhsha, and Kerstin Dautenhahn. These three sources give their pe... ... middle of paper ... ...match because this topic is very broad and there are so many ways robots can be used. Therefore it is just not a question whether robots should or shouldn’t replace robots but why should we and for what reason. Works Cited International Federation of Robotics.
In the wrong hands, artificial intelligence can be a serious threat and can lead to mass destruction. Also, machines superseding humans would be a thing people would constantly fear about. Artificial intelligence can undeniably help us conduct research with superhuman efficiency, to such an extent that ethics would be a cognitive pursuit and in the quality of moral thinking, they could easily surpass humans. (Bostrom, n.d.). However, having said this, everything created in this world, either it is collectively or individually, is the constant result of intelligence.
