RE: Are You Drinking the Transhumanist Kool-Aid?
Problem I think is not with the technology or the innovations or AI.
It is the intent for which they are being built. Greed. Greed for more profits/money, more power more control. Most BIG wigs that sponsor (or who can sponsor) don't get into it for general welfare!
What happens when you develop a stealth machine that can do anything that humans can do and much better/faster - it does it without question.
What happens when you gift it with intelligence, it mocks our own intelligence and as I said before, those who are bulding these are (for most part) Greedy.
If these machines emulate those characteristics, they will DO a better job at being greedy for control and power than humans ever did. Lucky for them, they don't have a heart to hurt...
So yeah, we should be scared about the abuse the AI may come to yield
We should also be excited about the possibilities it will open humans to
The concern is, should we be more excited or more scared?!
Time will tell!
