Media outlets are, as usual, sensationalizing artificial intelligence.
Reports of an intelligent robot delivering a chilling warning to humanity are circulating. One article from LAD Bible is titled “Robot Issues Chilling Warning To World On Live TV.” Reading from it:
I’m sorry have to be the one to tell you, but the end days are coming: artificial intelligence and humans could soon be at war.
This isn’t just the usual bullshit, one particular robot has issued a chilling warning in which it claimed to be ‘superior to humans’. If you’ve seen Terminator you’ll be aware it could well escalate from here.
Truly grave and incomprehensible, realistic concerns with artificial intelligence (and robots equipped with artificial intelligence) certainly exist. People should be theorizing about this, but far beyond the realm of tabloid news articles that exaggerate statements made by crude artificially intelligent robots.
Imagine what we don’t know about AI and the progress certain entities and governments have made in developing it. Much more advanced and threatening forms of this technology exist, so that should be considered in the full picture.
