This is what Google denied, that this robot is behind the expulsion of a software engineer and said that it claims that the "lambda" robot is conscious and aware of itself and its surroundings, due to its ability to speak fluently.
The scary side of artificial intelligence
And the expert in the field of information technology and business, Shukri Eid, said in an interview with “Sky News Arabia” that the frightening aspect of artificial intelligence is the stage at which this intelligence will reach a level of superior intelligence that exceeds what exists in humans, and therefore we will be faced with a dilemma related to how to Take advantage of this intelligence, and at the same time how to convince ourselves that we can control something that is smarter than us.
It is also about who will get “super artificial intelligence”, whether it is a country, a company or an individual, which means that the enormous and frightening power will be concentrated in a small group, which will cause an unimaginable gap between the people who have this power and those who do not. .
the fate of mankind
Shukri Eid warned that the most frightening aspect is that a super-intelligent program is out of control, as the development of artificial intelligence in an irresponsible way may make the fate of humanity in the hands of a force that does not see things from a human point of view, calling not to create a being that surpasses humans in strength and intelligence. Before resolving the dilemma of how to control it.
According to information technology expert Shukri Eid, the continuous development has led us to different directions, some of which may lead to a human race supported by the intelligence of machines, noting that the second trend that is being worked on is to reach an intelligence that parallels and represents the way the human mind works and is called Whole Brain Emulation. .
As for the third trend, it is related to super artificial intelligence based on “algorithms” capable of creativity and logical thinking, up to the stages of feeling, perception and sensation.
In an interview with "Sky News Arabia", Professor and Head of the Department of Economics at LAU Ghassan Diba said that despite the recent developments, specifically with the Google robot, artificial intelligence systems are still very far from having human awareness, as the These systems are still powered by models that rely on "induction of patterns", which allows them to produce "brainless words".
Diba, a university professor of artificial intelligence economics, explains that artificial intelligence systems or robots that are currently available can answer questions, because they have been trained to do so by deducing language patterns and sequencing the words that humans use in writing or speech, stressing that these systems that do not You have a "memory" like a human being, not conscious, but only having the high computing power to synthesize a specific context of speech without understanding what you are talking about.
Threat to the kingdom of man
According to Diba, there are many threats posed by the question of the impact of robots on the economy and society, even if it does not reach the stage of awareness or what is known as super intelligence, as it will lead to technological unemployment as well as to inequality between the owners of capital and workers, and this is happening now.
But if we reach the stage of super-intelligence and robots become a new “family” in addition to humans, this may threaten humans on an existential basis, especially if these robots have goals other than human goals, or they compete for resources.
