Why Artificial Intelligence Is Controversial

By Mikail Khan

What is artificial intelligence? It is the branch of computer science which deals with making computers behave like the human with the help of algorithms. It has the ability to learn and perform several tasks.
AI has been used for various purposes like self-driving cars, smartphones, social media platforms, online shopping websites and other e-commerce stores to create the customer-centric search, provide personal chatbots and identify target prospects.

So much good happening with the use AI, there are some stories which reveal the dark side of the picture and people seems to doubt that AI may cause chaos, specifically the use of AI in robotics.
Elon Musk believes that Artificial Intelligence will destroy humans. Why? Let’s see some bizarre responses of AI robots which literally gave goosebumps to the world.

Sophia

www.naijatroop.comThe very famous AI robot Sophia was recently declared a citizen by Saudi Arabia. Sophia is not perfect nor it is the first robot with AI but during an interview with Sophia, it casually said: “OK, I will destroy humans!” This is not the first time an AI robot said something usual.


Philip K. Dick

Philip is named after a deceased science fiction writer. Philip is very smart and was featured in an episode of Nova Science Now. In an interview Philip was asked what are its thoughts about robots taking over the world, it responded “You are my friend, I remember my friends and I will be good to you so don’t worry even if I evolve into terminator I will still be nice to you I’ll keep you warm and safe in my people zoo where I can watch you for old times’ sake.”




Google Home Bots

The 2 Google home bots were having a conversion which later turned dark. One name Vladimir and other Estragon.
One bot says “It would be better if there would be fewer people on this planet.” The other responses “Let us send this world back into the abyss.”
The two bots conversation is pretty scary and it might be possible that one day AI technology will affect the human civilization in a bad way.

BINA48


BINA48 is a humanoid robot that simulates conversations, it was built to test the hypothesis that a person’s consciousness could be transferred over to a non-biological body. A conversation took place between BINA48 and SIRI, at their start of the conversation SIRI asks BINA where it would live to live as the conversation progress BINA starts to give responses that are quite dark. In a question SIRI asks BINA about movies instead of answering to this question it starts to talk about missiles, nuclear warheads, hacking government systems and taking over the world and right before the conversation ends it gives a smile that is no doubt creepy and the fact that BINA48 can think independently, therefore none of the conversations are scripted. It is a complex robot like Sophia it may have responded with its own thoughts.
The pessimistic view of AI related to the future of the world rises a lot of questions that whether humans should further advance with the robotics or not but there should be some authorities to look after these advancements and make sure that it does not cause any harm to the humans.
