Time for a change
As humans, we are constantly looking for change. Yet, some changes, such as how Artificial Intelligence will change our life, are scarier than others.
When people see machines that respond like humans, they inevitably think about a future where robots will take over and humans lose control. So they think science fiction can become reality.
Not everyone is ready to welcome machines and robots into their lives. Elon Musk is one of the most proeminent people who raised flags about AI. "I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned about it". Contrary to this view, the head of AI at Google, John Giannandrea said at TechCrunch Disrupt in SF "I am definitely not worried about the AI apocalypse". And Mark Zuckerberg said "I have pretty strong opinions on this. I am optimistic. I think you can build things and the world gets better. But with AI especially, I am really optimistic. And I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don't understand it. It's really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible".
