Most of all this is possible, it is one of the most unknown scientific directions. The closest approach to this issue has been through the use of science fiction films, which many times Artificial Intelligence (AI) it avoids planned control and attempts against humanity.
This is probably one of the greatest prejudices that exist with regard to artificial intelligence. But what is true in all these myths?
John Atkinson He holds an Artificial Intelligence degree from Edinburgh University, who spent most of his life studying this topic.
Atkinson always sought to know more about this area, so he then demolishes and confirms some myths created by collective imagination.
Does artificial intelligence used in enterprises mean job cuts?
Reality IP automates tasks that are less robust, thus reducing "traditional" jobs. However, this is not typical of AIs, because the inclusion of traditional IT has had the same effect several years ago.
For example, the procedures that a customer would personally need to do at a branch, which is now done electronically from your mobile phone or your home.
Does artificial intelligence in the future tempt people?
Reality Although it can not be achieved at clearly-functioning levels within organizations. However, at international strategic level, this can sometimes happen in some areas.
For example, an autonomous weapon has already been created in the defense industry, which, of course, if unchecked, can affect not only the community but also humanity. Therefore, several international organizations are defending and demanding that AI protection be prohibited.
Does artificial intelligence used for transportation like airplanes or buses mean a higher risk of accidents than a man?
The use of Myth AI for autonomous driving of different types of vehicles is long lasting and generally has far more advantages than risks.
For example, in commercial aircraft, "autopilot" (GPS-controlled) flight modes have been used for years. Car rental is both a matter of time and flight time and take-off / landing.
Also, the machine is not "tired" while driving, it is perceptual information that there is no human driver, it can be "trained" with absolute compliance, it can predict in advance the situation on the route.
At some point, artificial intelligence could create feelings in robots?
Reality There are AI models that allow not only machines to base their emotions, but also their intentions and beliefs about the "world" they perceive.
On the other hand, the inclusion of emotions and beliefs is essential for practical interaction with people and their adoption. For example, depending on the machine's intentions, emotions and beliefs, the customer's commercial claim could be satisfied, one way or another, very different and rude.
Is it possible that in one of the next artificial intelligence will develop a chip that lets you store the memories one chooses from memory (as shown by the Black Mirror chapter)?
Reality In the memory-related aspects, there has been significant progress both in understanding where it is located and in electrometric information related to our brain neuron schemes.
Extracting and transferring this information to one of the physical devices is not only possible, but there are already organizations that in the medium term offer such "services" that even exceeds the "death" of the person, where both consciousness, because the memory can be transferred to "incarnation" representing post mortem.
Artificial intelligence is full of features and elements of the world, which many are not known.
This issue, like others, for example, cybersecurity, environment and innovation, is a matter which various national and international experts are addressing at the Society Innovation Meeting held until Friday, November 30 at the Marine Polytechnic Academy (APOLINAV) in Valparaiso.
