According to 82% of scientists, artificial intelligence does not pose a threat to humans if we use it for the proper purposes, and it does not fall into the hands of criminals, Science Alert reports.
Today, artificial intelligence has become an integral part of human life. For example, web browsers use special algorithms that, based on the history of finding information on the Internet, offer us interesting materials. Artificial intelligence is used in modern technologies to receive and deliver electronic information. However, many famous scientists, including physicist Stephen Hawking, believe that artificial intelligence could pose a serious threat to humanity in the future.
The artificial intelligence used today is the so-called "narrow-spectrum" system. It is widely used to identify individuals, operate unmanned aerial vehicles, or make Internet recommendations. They only perform pre-given tasks.
However, in reality, artificial intelligence performs many tasks better than humans. Deep Blue, for example, was the first digital device to win the 1997 World Chess Championship.
There is also a "wide range" artificial intelligence that mimics the human mind. They can think and solve specific issues. The creation of such robots is still at the starting point.
Some scientists see the danger in creating such a strong "broad-minded" artificial intelligence.
Specifically, what dangers can artificial intelligence create:
Strong artificial intelligence not only obeys orders, it learns based on experience and knowledge.
Most experts fear that artificial intelligence in the hands of the wrong people can become dangerous.
The artificial intelligence used by the modern world is very useful to humanity. And if misused, it can become a serious threat, although most scientists think this threat will not be fatal.
