"When the dust settles, the only thing living in this world, will be metal." - Ultron, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
What is AI? EditArtificial Intelligence (AI) is the intelligence when it comes from machines.
It is also a field of study where we learn how to create software and computers that are capable of thinking for itself. It is extremely complicated and highly technical. The main goals/problems for AI research are:
- And the ability to move things.
Problems AI could cause?EditIn the movie Avengers: Age of Ultron by Marvel Studios, Tony Stark (Iron Man) and Bruce Banner (Hulk) successfully create a fully working AI program, Ultron.His purpose is to help the Avengers protect Earth. However, Ultron malfunctions and mistakes "protect" as "destroy". This could also happen to us if someone made a fully working AI program. It is likely that they could of missed something due to artificial intelligence being extremely complex and technical. If such a program existed and malfunctioned, like Ultron, our technology could do harm to us and would be able to think for themselves.
"I, ROBOT", is another example of a film where humanoids and artificial intelligence can cause problems. In 2035, humanoid robots are serving humans, but then they malfunction and rebel against them.
But one humanoid, "Sonny" does not rebel due to it not following the robot protocol. It protects the main character from danger like other robots that are hostile.
The human mind can't be hacked, but artificial intelligence could be. This is possible due to AI being a program or software. Hackers could hack into a robot's mind and use it to do harmful or even violent things.This is highly unlikely because of AI being very complex.
Solution to AI problems Edit
A simple solution would be to make artificial intelligence government use only, or don't even make it in the first place. Making a working mind could be a danger to society as explained above. Stopping it's research is probably the best solution. We shouldn't risk making a powerful machine with a mind of its own.
