    WHAT HAPPENS WHEN COMPUTERS GET SMARTER THAN WE ARE?……By Syed Qasim Shah

     

    Now we live in a world controlled by artificial intelligence. How did we let this happen? Will we able to survive? is this the end of the world?

    If you have not read my first article about 50 year into the future the go back and read that first. This will give you more clear ideas about robots. https://english.chitraltimes.com/2019/04/08/whats-going-to-happen-with-you-50-years-into-the-future-syed-qasim-shah/

    The days with AI like Siri and Alexa, that made our lives better are now over. We no longer control AI, in fact. If it wants to, it can control us.  With the super intelligent being created, there is no telling what it would do.one thing we do know is this Ai would be far smarter than any human being. It would quickly create new technologies that human today could never even dream of. But wait, how did we get here? The very first digital computer was invented in 1937 as a way to help humanity. And for the most part computer and AI have given us a lot of good. In addition to giving us smart phones, the internet and video game consoles, it also allowed us to explore the galaxy, make new medicines and even robots, human intelligence let to the birth of technology. But as we continue to improve artificial intelligence, Ai may become smart enough to start running itself. Technology will become so advanced, that it would not need humans to operate it anymore, becoming uncontrollable. As the AI is free to do whatever it pleases, it will continue to improve on itself becoming more advanced with every passing second. This is known as technological singularity. This technological singularity may allow AI to do almost anything, even physically. Such as robot taking over our manufacturing machines. When that happens, they can create their own machines. And let’s be honest, by the time some thing like this happens human will most likely have created an AI can make its own physical objects. If some like this happens. It can pretty much only mean bad things for us humans. And unfortunately, this is more of a WHEN IF than a WHAT IF. Since the 1980s, thought leaders in AI and technology have been predicting that it could happen.  Some thing it could happen by the middle of this century. If it did happen, what it would it mean foe us as a human being? Well, that would really be up to our AI overload. In this world, humans would essentially be useless bags of meat taking up space. Insulting, I know, but Ai took control of everything, we really would not be all that useful. Any thing that the AI wanted to do or accomplish would be slower and less efficient if done by humans. But if the AI were to somehow allow us to live among them, then what would happen? Well, lets hope they would not pave over our crops to build more robot factories. Since AI does not need food, they most likely would not create about our feeble human needs.

    And what do humans do with these things?

    Unless they allow to continue to manufacture and grow our own food, it would deplete over time, leaving us human with nothing. The only reason AI would keep us human alive, is if they somehow like us enough to keep us aa what would essentially be pets. We could spend time with them, keep company with them, maybe even cuddle with them, just like our pets do for us. A life like this would not be so bad. Hanging out at home all day, being well fed, not really having a care in the world.

    That would probably be the best bet for humanity, because there is virtually no chance of us overruling a super intelligence in our current state. One way we could compete with this AI is if we fused our bodies with technology and became cyborgs. Allowing the humans race, a different kind of evolution, one that includes artificial intelligence. But could be really do that?

    That should like another article of mine.
