Artificial Intelligence: Is it Affecting Humanity?

Published on June 7, 2020

Artificial Intelligence is a term that was undefined before 1955. After a decade, this topic has been a very interesting subject of discussion and also a threat to humanity and mankind to some extent. This term was first coined by John McCarthy in 1955 in Dartmouth Conference. The intriguing part is the topic, was a myth and the conversation was unknown to many. But, now this term has been approached by many scientists in do many different ways. A lot of users from different part of the world are now researching Artificial Intelligence and have accomplished some amazing heights.

Now, since the term has been a turmoil for some faith blinders and has also been a hot topic in many ways. So, today we are going to discuss if Artificial Intelligence has been affecting Humanity in anyways.  Starting with the term Artificial Intelligence itself. It is the simulation of human intelligence in machines. This kind of intelligence is programmed to make machines think like humans and mimic their actions. The term may also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem-solving, designing, walking playing and in the other entire human thing, we can think of.

Some examples about AI:

And around the passage of time, we have seen machines evolving with this trait and habits that are so human-like. And with Robots like Sophia who is the most advanced human-like robot, the future of AI seems very near. The character of Sophia captures the imagination of global audiences. Sophia the robot is surprisingly also the world’s first robot citizen and the first robot Innovation Ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme. She can read feel, get jokes, and much more.   

So, when we hear about such terms and can witness some examples of Artificial Intelligence like Sophia there is a threat that constantly surrounds us. It indicates Artificial Intelligence as something that might be the end of humanity. Some ideology that states Artificial Intelligence as a threat is:

The machine will take over mankind:

Artificial Intelligence

There is this ideology that machine might take over the world someday and it might abolish humanity. Some people say that if Artificial Intelligence starts becoming as advance as it is getting then humans might be the left as nothing more than slaves. We human and our humanity might abolish under the influence of machine and their efficiency.

Machines can corrupt the human life:

Artificial Intelligence at its best

 Another interesting topic is that machines can corrupt human life; people have been so vocal that machines can corrupt human life and although it is true in some ways it cannot be considered true in many ways. There is this conception of how human can be enslaved by machines.

The machine will finish every shred of humankind:

Artificial Intelligence in process

Yet another interesting theory is that the machines have the tendency to abolish mankind and destroy every last bit of it. This is the theory that is followed by super Intelligence replacing human lives. People believe that if machines will start becoming more intelligent and start reciprocating more of its kind then their majority might overpower us. And then they will start enslaving human and finish every shred of humanity that might ever exist on the universe.

So, answering all those above questions what we can tell you is that intelligence and superintelligence are in the process of development and can only cause harms as mentioned above if we let them too. We, humans, are very dedicated to new technology and gadgets that already have AI in them. But, this hasn’t been doing us any bad till date. And since humans are the most intelligent being till date, there remains a threat of having something more dominant than human that might as well be the human creation itself. So, if we start using technology to its lowest from the present time and start minimizing the obsessive use of technology. Then chances are that inventions might not be widespread enough to abolish mankind. However, there will always remain a threat that Artificial Intelligence may degrade humanity but it’s completely upon us to let that happen.

As long as human limit the resource to the AI incorporation. Resources that will be provided to incorporate in the AI then technology can be mans best friend. But, if there is excessive use of dominant nature in technology. Nature like dominance, hatred and negative hardcore feelings on the machine then it can only lead to destruction. It is more like the process of limitation. Where the machine with only good stimulation and submissive behaviour is created so that it doesn’t destruct humanity in anyways.
