21 Quotes About Artificial Intelligence : The Good, The Cautious & The Scary


 

Whether you buy into the dystopian rhetoric of Elon Musk, or the more optimistic utopianism of Mark Zuckerberg, Artificial Intelligence is a hot topic with only one certainty, that it will become a key pillar of how we live our future lives.

The only other certainty at this stage, is the amount of headline grabbing opinions being generated by this subject, as an example ….

The “We think it’s a good thing” Crowd

“Artificial intelligence would be the ultimate version of Google. The ultimate search engine that would understand everything on the web. It would understand exactly what you wanted, and it would give you the right thing. We’re nowhere near doing that now. However, we can get incrementally closer to that, and that is basically what we work on.” – Larry Page

“I truly believe Ai is the key to unlocking the full potential of human focused digital, so it is important that we understand what AI is, in order to understand what it is going to mean for design. Because now that it is here, we have a solid foundation to start creating more intelligent, invisible experiences that make us more human by design. We are at the precipice of one of the most significant discoveries of development since we learnt how to light a fire.” – Pete Trainor

“Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So instead of artificial intelligence, I think we’ll augment our intelligence.” – Ginni Rometty

“You have to talk about ‘The Terminator’ if you’re talking about artificial intelligence. I actually think that that’s way off. I don’t think that an artificially intelligent system that has superhuman intelligence will be violent. I do think that it will disrupt our culture.” – Gray Scott

“It’s going to be interesting to see how society deals with artificial intelligence, but it will definitely be cool.” – Colin Angle

“Someone on TV has only to say, ‘Alexa,’ and she lights up. She’s always ready for action, the perfect woman, never says, ‘Not tonight, dear.’” – Sybil Sage

“Artificial Intelligence is not a Man versus Machine saga; it’s in fact, Man with Machine synergy.” – Sudipto Ghosh

“Artificial intelligence will reach human levels by around 2029. Follow that out further to, say, 2045, we will have multiplied the intelligence, the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization a billion-fold.” – Ray Kurzweil

“But on the question of whether the robots will eventually take over, it will probably not happen, for a variety of reasons. First, no one is going to accidentally build a robot that wants to rule the world. He says that creating a robot that can suddenly take over is like someone accidentally building a 747 jetliner. Plus, there will be plenty of time to stop this from happening. Before someone builds a “super-bad robot,” someone has to build a “mildly bad robot,” and before that a “not-so-bad robot.” – Michio Kaku

“Why command a robot not to do harm—wouldn’t it be easier never to command it to do harm in the first place? Aggression, like every other part of human behavior we take for granted, is a challenging engineering problem!” – Steven Pinker

“As more and more artificial intelligence is entering into the world, more and more emotional intelligence must enter into leadership.” – Amit Ray

The “It scares the hell out of me” Lobby

“Competition for AI superiority at national level is the most likely cause of WW3” – Elon Musk

“I visualize a time when we will be to robots what dogs are to humans, and I’m rooting for the machines.” – Claude Shannon

“When artificial intelligence comes of age, the first thing it’s going to do is get rid of the inefficient parts. And guess who that will be! And what will happen to us? Well, to find out the answer to that question all you have to do is see what we do with all of our unwanted rubbish.” – Anthony T.Hincks

“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race….It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.” – Stephen Hawking

“The attribution of intelligence to machines, crowds of fragments, or other nerd deities obscures more than it illuminates. When people are told that a computer is intelligent, they become prone to changing themselves in order to make the computer appear to work better, instead of demanding that the computer be changed to become more useful.” – Jaron Lanier

“The upheavals [of AI] can escalate quickly and become scarier and even cataclysmic. Imagine how a medical robot, originally programmed to rid cancer, could conclude that the best way to obliterate cancer is to exterminate humans who are genetically prone to the disease.” – Nick Bilton

“I don’t want to really scare you, but it was alarming how many people I talked to who are highly placed people in AI who have retreats that are sort of ‘bug out’ houses, to which they could flee if it all hits the fan.” – James Barrat

“I’m more frightened than interested by artificial intelligence – in fact, perhaps fright and interest are not far away from one another. Things can become real in your mind, you can be tricked, and you believe things you wouldn’t ordinarily. A world run by automatons doesn’t seem completely unrealistic anymore. It’s a bit chilling.” – Gemma Whelan

“People always have such a hard time believing that robots could do bad things.” – Rita Stradling

“the exponential progress of technology is altering the phenomenological experience of human sensation, robbing us of our ability to get in touch with our humanity and reflect upon the triumphs and madness of our techno-society. Ironically, in our obstinate desire to humanize robots and Artificial Intelligence, our individual existence is, in turn, being digitized and robotized by our own technological inventions” – Danny Castillones Sillada

“Whoever perceives that robots and artificial intelligence are merely here to serve humanity, think again. With virtual domestic assistants and driverless cars just the latest in a growing list of applications, it is we humans who risk becoming dumbed down and ultimately subservient to machines.” – Alex Morritt
