Concerns & Possibilities regarding AI
Although technically possible, it would still be incredibly difficult to make people wear a chip inside them or get them accept the idea of being online at all times. Many people are way too concerned about their privacy, not to mention their fear of getting hacked.
Elon Musk’s story about Neuralink got me thinking about how to grow our readiness to use that kind of technology, so that we wouldn’t be afraid of it. The key here is a choice. We have seen horror movies where people get locked inside a speeding car that villains have taken over and there’s nothing they can do before crashing to death. Now only imagine if someone takes over your will towards devices… Good thing to do in this case would be to grab the device, phone, ring, bracelet etc. and throw it out the window or turn it offline. Knowing that it is always possible to remove the device would give us time to get used to the tech.
At the same time, technology will be improved, made more reliable and to our fancy, cause these little butlers we are wearing know how to interact with machines, while we don’t. They will talk the same language as our cars or tv or security system, while learning our behavior. It will give you the same feeling as a butler would, cause it’ll know what time you leave home on Wednesday morning and which car would you use or bus you’d choose. It will know your rituals.
One day when it’s safe enough and we are not afraid of the technology anymore, we can be chipped or it can be connected to our brain.
Elon Musk warned us of AI and told how we need to regulate it. It got me thinking whether it is too one-sided story, making machines and devices understand us, because they must memorize so much and every one of them would know too much about us, about our fears and behavior. Elon Musk explains both sides of the idea — in one side he talks about machines learning about us and in the other side about us being neuralinked, which gives us, humans, the ability to talk the language of machines, so that each machine around us could be stupid enough not to threaten us, but we could still benefit from the way AI would work.
