The day machines surpass us in intelligence

What will happen when artificial intelligence surpasses human intelligence is the biggest concern of computer scientists right now, according to a article from BBC Mundo that explains the three stages of this phenomenon with presumably fatal consequences.

The Artificial Superintelligence (AI)notes the medium, will be the last of the three levels, described as an “intellect much more intelligent than the best human brains in practically all fields.”

While humans spend years being lawyers, doctors or engineers, with AI it could be done “immediately,” says Ignacio Gutiérrez, a public policy researcher at the Future of Life Institute.

According to experts, we are currently going through “Narrow Artificial Intelligence” (ANI), the first of three possible scenarios, named for responding to a single task and “performing repetitive work within a range predefined by its creators.”

“All programs and tools that use AI today, even the most advanced and complex ones, are forms of ANI,” says the article, which gives examples of cell phone applications such as GPS maps, the virtual assistants Siri and Alexa, and the Google search engine.

However, given the belief that we are on the verge of reaching the second level, Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), more than a thousand technology experts have asked AI companies to abandon training for at least six months in those most powerful programs. than GPT-4, the latest version of ChatGPT.

The founder of this chat, Sam Altman, told the United States Congress that it was “crucial” that his industry be regulated by the Government as AI becomes “increasingly powerful.”

alarmed and hopeful

Artificial Superintelligence has two opposing groups: those who consider it beneficial to humanity and those who see it as a threat, points out BBC Mundo.

On one side, appears the American futurist Ray Kurzweil, AI researcher at Google and co-founder of the University of the Singularity in Silicon Valley, announcing immortality for humans in 2030 thanks to nanobots. From another, the late British physicist Stephen Hawking, who envisioned “the end of the human race.”

Ignacio Gutiérrez reflects on “a future in which an entity has so much information about each person on the planet and their habits (thanks to our Internet searches) that it could control us in a way that we would not realize.”

However, he assures, the worst scenario “is not that there are human wars against robots, but” that we do not realize that we are being manipulated because we are sharing the planet with an entity much more intelligent than ourselves.
