With the right kind of regulations, artificial intelligence-automation-robotics may be able to produce so much wealth for humankind that Universal Basic Income or Andrew Yang’s Freedom Dividend may be implemented so that no one needs to live below poverty level and any one and every one may be able to find ways to produce creative work and reach his/her full potential.
Elon Musk has warned about the dangers of AI in many occasions. He is one among many public thinkers who have expressed concerned about the risks involved in artificial intelligence. Particularly, a digital Superintelligence as Elon calls it. While artificial intelligence systems continue to improve, they also raise a fundamental question about the survival of our species. The dangers of AI can not be overstated. The AI alignment problem is probably the single most important task for humanity to get it right the first time, because we may not ever get a chance to try again. Elon Musk thinks we should proceed very very carefully if we collectively decide that building a digital Superintelligence is the right move. Our failure to grasp and deal with the possible consequences that come along with the creation of a digital Superintelligence, may prove to be our downfall. A Superintelligence would be capable of rapid learning and unlimited memory, making it a potentially superior being. It is difficult to study an AGI, but the possible results are worrying. A Superintelligence might have a rapid growth period, taking over every computer system and reducing the human race to a small and inconsequential presence. Unfortunately, an AGI would be both very intelligent and resource limited, and so it would eventually consider its own survival optimal. This may lead to it threatening other intelligences that were once its allies, and it may even terminate them. Assuming that a digital Superintelligence could be controlled, it would then be under human direction. What would it be used for? In the video “Elon Musk’s Final Warning About AI: Should We Create a Digital Superintelligence“, below:
Artificial Intelligence (AI) will soon be much more intelligent and faster than human within few years. Elon Musk is calling for proactive regulations of AI before it gets to that stage. With the right kind of regulations, artificial intelligence-automation-robotics may be able to produce so much wealth for humankind that Universal Basic Income or Andrew Yang’s Freedom Dividend may be implemented so that no one needs to live below poverty level and any one and every one may be able to find ways to produce creative work and reach his/her full potential. This is the time to think seriously and to try to implement pro-active regulations.

I am a mother/wife/daughter, math professor, solar advocate, world traveler, yogi, artist, photographer, sharer of knowledge/information, and resident of Windermere, FL. I've worked professionally in applied math, engineering, medical research, and as a university math professor in IL and FL for about 20 years. My husband and I loved Disney and moved down to Central Florida initially as snowbirds. But we've come to love the warmth and friendly people offered by this community and decided to move down to Windermere, FL full time in 2006. I am now spending time sharing information/ knowledge online, promoting understanding of math and solar energy (via http://www.sunisthefuture.net ), and developing Windermere Sun (http://www.WindermereSun.com) as an online publication, sharing and promoting Community ABC's (Activities-Businesses-Collaborations) for healthier/happier/more sustainable living. In the following posts, I'll be sharing with you some of the reasons why Windermere has attracted us to become full-time residents of Central Florida region.
