While we nerds think that “AI could solve all the world’s problems” and talk proudly that Silicon Valley will be able cure death but the other side of the world enjoys magic of daily life routine full of mysteries and myths. These people can’t be preached that technology is the next religion and the only way to extend your life is to throw away your body and become cyborg.
Artilect War or Utopia, Nobody can tell.
If left to tech billionaire, super intelligence will invent anything that we can’t even foresee or imagine. Everyday ordinary carbon based human being will be gone.
We start believing that we are transitioning from biology/carbon based humanity and it was just a stepping stone to achieve some final goal we yet need to know. Till now man was a tool making animal but now we are creating tools that will create more intelligent tools than our tools
Huge funds are propelling this development of advanced AI, and tech billionaires are pushing more ghosts in their black boxes, and getting rich off us and want to feed us the crumbs.
Soon AI will augment your brain and blur the lines between what is real and what is not; and we are allowing technology to supersede us. Cow moo moo sound is nothing to us, useless sound; stand up against super intelligence — and human way of doing things appears totally inefficient and useless.
in his book Darwin Among the Machines, George Dyson says:
“In the game of life and evolution there are three players at the table: human beings, nature, and machines. I am firmly on the side of nature. But nature, I suspect, is on the side of the machines.”
There is no way,now. We can’t stop this god-like massive super intelligent network that we are building and soon we may lose our place as the dominant species on this planet.
But all this is good that we are stepping away from the idea of being “productive” and “efficient’; and may be find “happiness” this way.
