Well, I have it programmed to only go for the non-tumblr users, so right now, you pass! Good job!
Lol Ugh I know how I want to start it, I simply haven’t had the time…
But okay okay can I just bring something up really quick that Tumblr NEEDS to know about?
First of all, AIs don’t necessarily have the capability to walk, talk, or do anything of that sort. In fact, my coding instructors even refer to programs that are HARD PROGRAMMED to respond to certain phrases (e.g. no machine learning) as a basic AI. Obviously, that doesn’t cut it for me, and I’m trying to program one to use the user’s response to exand its database.
What I’m trying to get at is that AIs aren’t scary. In fact, there already are AIs… for example, some AIs have being developed to beat humans at online chess. Others are in charge of handling search data.
However, these are very basic AIs with little use of machine learning. Things get really interesting really fast once you start learning more.
There is an AI, created by Non-specialists that has the ability to diagnose patients with different diseases even more successfully than trained specialists.
Now, image what we could do if we got the help of neuroscientists on an AI. The human brain, though complex, is becoming very well understood as time goes on. An AI that is entirely based off of one person’s brain could have amazing results. It could allow people to study mental illnesses, for example, without ever having to do an experiment on a human or animal. What if we could find specific treatments for each individual?
The applications are limitless. The above example is just something that came from my own crazy brain, but can you imagine what we could do if everyone learned to embrace the idea of artificial intelligence instead of pushing it away?
They can be amazingly simple or amazingly complex- but the important part is to understand that they are just a computer program… then the facade of intelligence falls away, and we are left with a fantastic invention that simply uses it’s brilliant programming to constantly add to its database of ideas- no taking over the human race needed.
