The looming threat of Artificial Unintelligence: Dumb algorithms | Zero Moment


curated by | March 23, 2015

“I’m not arguing that AI is entirely harmless. If anything, it’s inevitable that autonomous algorithms will cause harm to humans. But just as there’s a difference between recognizing the inherent danger of defunct satellites turning into lethal space junk, and ranting about a future filled with orbital lasers and mind-control satellites, the risks associated with AI should be assessed for what they are, and with at least a modicum of sanity. The AI that’s poised to ruin lives has nothing in common with supervillains like Ultron, and won’t be what anyone would consider superintelligent. More likely, the AI that hurts us will be very, very dumb.”
