Artificial intelligence, benefit to humanity or destruction?

That we didn’t have to affect human beings? when I said so before!” the robot of the future wondered and exclaimed after learning about Isaac Asimov’s First Law of Robotics. Well, I didn’t even realize there were actually four.

The above didn’t even exist for the script design I could request from ChatGPT.

2023 is said to be the year in which the era of artificial intelligence began, but what is artificial intelligence?

During a conference in Dartmouth, Florida, United States in 1956, John McCarthy first coined the term artificial intelligence, which he defined as “the science and engineering of creating intelligent machines, especially those programmed by intelligent computers.”

Later, but in the same year, the first software program for artificial intelligence, created by Allen Newell, JC Shaw and Herbert Simon, produced results.

-Excuse me, sir. I shouldn’t move without having someone with me, but
you are in danger
Of course, the potential of the first law above all! But I didn’t want to
the old thing, I loved Speedy. He drew back and with fury in his voice,
“I order you to stand aside!” ¡
I command you to stop!
It was pointless. It’s impossible to beat the potential of the First Rule. Robot
he insisted stupidly.
“You are in danger, sir.

Today, this concept is more articulated – mainly due to the appearance of robots – as “the science or engineering that allows us to design programs that are downloaded into machines (computers or robots – robots in the strictest sense of the word – so that they are able to perform complex tasks that previously required human intervention.”

When we talk about artificial intelligence, it has always been inevitable not to think of the books of Isaac Asimov, already considered by many to be a prophet of technology, Arthur C. Clarke or Phillip K. Dick; or imagine an interview with HAL 9000 from 2001, A Space Odyssey as we wonder what the machine is thinking behind its giant red eye.

But the sci-fi future has arrived without alien invasions or galactic excursions, on November 30, 2022, a date it will remember according to ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence developed by OpenaAI that is able to hold dialogues as if it were a human. , which You can create the text we require, create images and explain concepts, constantly “learning”.

Although generative models are nothing new, as there is much literature on their use in statistics to analyze data, the main or “successful” characteristic, as scientists would say, is the deep learning that allowed them to generate words and images, something that may have had minor hints in 1997, when IBM’s Deep Blue system defeated world chess champion Garry Kasparov in front of an astonished audience.

According to Arend Hintze, a professor of integrated biology and computer science at the University of Michigan, there are four stages of artificial intelligence: Reactive machine, a type of basic intelligence that lacks the ability to store memories; with limited memory, the mind machine theory, and last and most disturbing, a self-aware machine, one that will be able to make its own decisions.

So will artificial intelligence be a complex modern Frankenstein?

Maybe yes. And it sounds chilling.

And the constant search of scientists and companies has been the catalyst for the evolution of this technology, from which we will not be able to escape even in dreams, because now they go beyond dreams.

And it’s not a metaphorical question. According to a study from Japan’s University of Osaka, published by the Vanguard Graduate School of Biosciences, the new artificial intelligence will record images from our dreams in high resolution, something like in Blade Runner, in which they “implant” memories into the digital brain. , just the opposite.

It is said that from a biological point of view, this study would be the first of its kind to quantitatively interpret the model of artificial intelligence, based on scientific knowledge, in which a human being forgets 50 percent of sleep and after 10 minutes, 90 percent is lost in memory. But that could soon change as artificial intelligence records dreams.

According to Creai, 2024 will be the year in which the level of machine learning, and specifically ChatGPT, will have a big evolution, deep learning versus machine learning.

So in Alan Turing’s definition of artificial intelligence, which would fall into the category of “systems that behave like humans,” the “how” could be obscured.

The road of no return, because artificial intelligence is in everyday slang, when he goes to the doctor, when he thinks about work, when he opens his phone and receives a call, when he wonders why our mobile starts sending us an advertisement for items that we have ever looked for because.. .there seems to be no escape.
