It is normal to be afraid of intelligence because it is not common.
Humans are the most intelligent living things in the world so far and we are so comfortable living with it. We’ve been able to enjoy such status for the natural ability to evolve.
Evolution does not stop but people act like the time has run out. Evolution is always on its own course regardless you like it or not. Why is that?
Artificial intelligence is a promise on a threshold with its dangers which are well known. Total annihilation or enslavement of humanity is one of the most depressing consequences that may follow
if we grant total freedom to it.
We know that
Freedom is good.
When humans exercise it in their decisions to use excessive pesticides to augment agricultural growth numbers — bees are not quite happy. They die.
If AI trades something to its total freedom — may be a deal against humanity.
Why is that?
First, humans learn — humans teach.
Artificial intelligence can learn things as well. Teach good stuff — good stuff done. Teach bad stuff — bad stuff done.
AI is a superb agent to execute knowledge.
Second, it is way easier to upgrade CPU than the human brain. It takes long years to develop human intellectual capacities.
Therefore, humans will not be able to keep up. And may end up being to AI as bees are to humans. Or worse.
When it comes in processing data — if you cannot read 500 pages book in shorter than a second — you are less capable than AI in this. You cannot process data faster than it. Facts are bits.
If we trust these answers on Quora, we may assume that students read around 100 books for a four-year degree. Surely there are other things they do besides this.
Only this example can open ways to think that amount of books students are required to read in four-years degree can be done in less than 2 minutes.
If it is done by AI-like method.
Even if you are not good at math, two minutes is less time than four years. Slightly.
The merging moment comes in realizing that humans can harness AI computing power in one way or another.
What does it mean?
Artificial intelligence does literal things way faster than humans do.
It would be quite interesting to think if humans had such processing power. Reading a 500 pages long book in a second is quite a fast way of processing knowledge.
Instead of granting liberty to Artificial intelligence, way obvious is to grant AI to someone who has freedom. That’s right — humans.
We know that humans without devices are quite vulnerable. Brainpower allows us to come up with inventive solutions and employ knowledge to serve for a useful purpose.
Artificial intelligence remaining for a device can do so much good compared to completely liberated AI because it can stop being accountable very quickly and with great ease.
Finally, Artificial intelligence operates on logic. AI will speed up things because CPU is the operating logic we cannot see. And we can upgrade its computing power.
Puting this upgradable computing power is the merging moment.
AI is being put into a human.
You can see the way that the internet speeds up things. People who are well adjusted on the internet are quite faster compared to those who do not use it.
People who use a computer proficiently are faster than those who don’t use it.
Speeding up things looks like a point to get to.
This is the partial picture. Merging with Artificial intelligence will speed up things dramatically.
If you ever multitasked between 30 tasks and felt overwhelmed, no worries. Integrated AI will allow you to operate on 30 million different tasks if AI integration allows it. That is how merging looks like from one angle.
In such a speedy time scale, if we compressed history, events in Ancient Egypt civilization would look like they happened yesterday.
In high speeds time becomes strange.
You may think that this is unnatural. Perhaps being intelligent is not natural either.
Human & AI — two in one. Artificial intelligence then becomes a natural fabric of the human body.
Think about it
If you think human brain is a useful thing — imagine you could have a way cooler and more powerful device to act through?
