The AI hype cycle has gained up a lot of momentum in the past six years. With Machine and deep learning in the spotlight, AI is acting as the showstopper. Predictions are made and criticised with every tiny AI move. Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) Wipe Out Entire Work Force? Or will it only be a support and a technology for the human race to achieve their utmost potential?
Much of the fear is over the situations like AI taking our jobs or as shown in one of the best grossing AI science-fiction I, Robot. So, is AI hype really that threatening to the future us? Now let’s talk about the current scenarios contradicting the hype that AI is getting in which some of them as very wrong reasons.
Faux Pas AI
Everything till now about the AI is how it becomes our helping hand for optimum result. But, every other day we read about an AI singularity. And here comes some self-aware general intelligence that lacks any trace of ethics.
This is all while not denying the negative fact checker like the Twitter chat robot Tay which started as a fun experiment to an ugly Internet troll racist in a gust of wind. As a result, Microsoft pulls the plug on Taytweets after deleting some very offensive tweets.
Some of those foul tweets:
Sophia the robot has been one of the closest and one of the most popular AI Robot. But even after its co-creator who said “Oh yeah, she is basically alive,” Hanson Robotics CEO David Hanson said of Sophia during a 2017 appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show. Nevertheless, Sophia’s co-creator says Sophia is not a true AI, but a work of art.
Robots are taking off in Japan, and several companies manufacture them for service. Japan’s first robot-staffed hotel: The Henn-na Hotel in Sasebo, Japan. Even from the start, the bots required a constant human intervention. So now the hotel has discontinued the services of its 243 robots and its love for them.
Even the hype that started with the Autonomous cars and the self-driving car has not resulted in any fruitful results yet. Between all of the predictions and declarations still has many flaws to absolve.
Consequently, the reality is much less dramatic: Artificial intelligence has come a long way in just the last few years, but it still far far away from even being on the list of dangers to us. Even the chatbots that everyone is using have various limitations. Bots like Alexa, Siri and echo, are nothing more than the voice detectors and search results inputted on them.
The artificial intelligence hype cycle, for now, has reached to its fullest. Don’t just believe the trend. The AI Today is really not that clever.
This all continues to show if only humans do not use AI on weapons and destructions, but just for human good with ethics in consideration then there should be no fear of having robots and machines as our enemy. As history is our witness, the destruction only occurs with evils and greed of human minds. Overuse of science and technology has always been destructive to humanity. That is what truly brings fear of Artificial Intelligence.
Some Smash Hits of AI
Moreover, we have already discussed so much on how Artificial Intelligence is helping us to grow in many ways and at almost every level. Here, Artificial Intelligence portraits how it’s just a subtle way of reaching better conclusions quickly without being any threat:
