Why are there people even working on creating which would infinite surpass human capabilities? I didn't vote for any of that! But because of these people, we all would have to take the consequences if it goes wrong. And there are really people like who think the solution is merging with

It would be digital created and needed to fed information. What if it knew all of our internet activities, and browsing history, what could possibly go wrong? We need this conversation!

@tinfoil_hat as soon as I read your message, I started writing. As soon as I realized I didn't have enough characters, I got out of bed and wrote you a blog post :)


TLDR what you're afraid of, cannot happen. Not in our lifetimes, and probably a whole lot longer after that.

If anything is not clear, please ask. I'm passionate about artificial intelligence and also studied brains for 9 years and did a PhD on the fastest neurons in our brain: the medial superior olive :)

@yarmo I read trough it and some things bother me about it:
1) I learned that humans can't use all their brain capacity in fact just some of it. But the AI can do that.
2) Good AI's run on supercomputers (whatson, stockmarket AIs etc. you can't compare their capabillities to normal computers see next
3) there's Uni courses about writing an AI so it would be peossible for an individual or a group to let it off the internet / botnet what would stop some madass to push "the red button" on purpose



2) Supercomputers to me don't mean much. Until we get access to quantum computers, I'm not worried and even then. Remember how I said neurons can work in nuances and transistors with just on and off? Quantum computers could do that but they are not usable yet (according to friends in academia who work with them). But even then, man will never make a machine that can be as refined as our brains have become by millions of years of evolution. We can't in my opinion.
