Super Artificial Intelligence
Renaissance or Requiem
Somewhere in the not too distant future a machine weeps softly ....
Not for the passing of a fellow machine, but for humanity and the entire
The future of humanity has never looked so uncertain and dangers confront
us in many guises.Some are beyond our control and others such as global
warming we may still be able to address. Yet possibly the greatest threat ever
to our future existence seems to be sliding quietly under the public radar.
Artificial Intelligence is already here and continues to grow at an astonishing
rate, permeating almost every aspect of our daily lives. Efforts are now
consciously being directed towards advancements towards General AI,
the development of a machine intelligence level which could equal or even
surpass that of humans.
Yet this is not our greatest worry. The single most important threat to the future
of mankind is what may follow. Could a General AI system ‘evolve’ itself into a
Super Artificial Intelligence, or as it’s more dramatically known a ‘Singularity’?
And if so could humanity cope or even survive, in a future world where we are
no longer the masters?
'Super Artificial Intelligence...' delves into what may be potentially mankind's
greatest challenge. Artificial Intelligence not only offers the potential for
unlimited benefits, but at the same time provides equally unlimited scope for
untold harm. Will it be humanity's Renaissance or Requiem?
