Is Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) a threat to humanity?
Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is a threat to humanity.
Surrendering increasing areas of decision making to AI will likely lead to more social disconnect, alienation and loneliness among humanity.
It is difficult to ensure that an AI understands and shares our values and goals in all of their complexity.
An AGI may rapidly expand its influence via the Internet. There's a lot of easily hackable hardware around. One cannot simply turn it off if something goes wrong.
An advanced AI would be capable of self-improvement, rewriting its own code better than a human could. This can lead to a positive feedback loop and an exponential increase in its capabilities.
AGIs could be exploited by individuals and groups with malicious intentions.
AI systems are already superior to humans in various areas, such as games and driving vehicles.
An AI would have no reason to threaten humans.
AGIs will likely never be created.
Humanity would likely create more than one AI system. These systems could likely keep each other in check.
It is likely that the arrival of AGIs is still a long time away. By then AGIs may no longer be a threat due to humanity's advances.
Artificial general intelligence requires "world knowledge", which may require an artificial consciousness. Artificial consciousness may require subjective experiences, which may not be achieved without fully replicating the physiological and mental constraints of human beings.
One must be artificially intelligent to understand the threats AI may or may not pose to humanity.
Humans tend to feel threatened by and are afraid of all kinds of things, even when that's not appropriate. Human perceptions are therefore not a good guide for evaluating whether AGIs are an actual threat.
The possibility of "intelligence explosion" is predicated upon the as yet unfounded assumption that IQ is equal to data processing and faster processing will lead to more IQ.
Is Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) even possible?
Artificial Intelligence (AI): Should an artificial general intelligence be created?
Artificial Intelligence (AI): Limiting an AI's freedom of thought is unethical.
