There's a lot of concern about where we're taking society with all of this artificial intelligence, either in existence or in the works, and frankly I think we should slow it down--or shut it down. If it's not something to help disabled people or otherwise benefit us in a significant way, why bother making machines that will only impact our workforce and even create a danger to us all?
Mo Gawdat thinks Silicon Valley is creating a god and I'd have to agree with him--not just because he's the expert, but because of the potential harm and what we've already seen. Our tech is growing faster than we can keep up with it legally, ethically, and on a global scale. People are already using and abusing it to do everything from create fake DNA to spy on others and it's only going to get worse.
The question is, how do we prevent the harm from happening? We obviously can't prevent the harms that have already occured, but do we need more laws in place to prevent people from furthering artificial intelligence before it dooms us all? Share what you think in the chat.
