14. Is the recent progress of humanoid robots a threat?

 

My thoughts are as follows:

Crimes are motivated by desires. Desires are linked to biological properties of human beings. As long as humanoid robots do not include the biological properties linked to desires, humanoid robots will not be able to self-plan and self-execute any crime. However, humanoid robots could be the tools for bad guys to use in a process of committing crimes. But, such scenario could be avoided with built-in software which evaluates and monitors the consequence of humanoid robots’ actions.

13. Google CEO Sergey Brin, “I didn’t see Artificial Intelligence coming. How wrong was I?”

My short response to his question is as follows:

If we believe that Artificial Intelligence simply means computer-aided human intelligence or computerized human intelligence, then we have already achieved a great deal in this direction. And, all the data-based decision-making systems are good examples of such achievements.

If we believe that Artificial Intelligence should mean machine’s, or robot’s, self-intelligence, then only very few people are making the progress into this direction. And, we are still in the infant stage in this direction. Most importantly, I believe that much more resources should be put into this direction, instead of continuing to speculate about computer-aided human intelligence or computerized human intelligence.
