Tom Gilbert's insight:

Many science fiction cultures interpret artificial intelligence as a generally bad thing, is this because of our fear of the unknown? that we could possibly build something more sophisticated than our brain (fun fact: the brain is the only thing to have named itself,profound, i know...) or is this general fear of artificial intelligence root from the fact of how unnatural a concept it is to us. Recently nasa has been concerned of coming asteroids, as far enough as to plan for  some sort of planetery defense mechanism, so comparing artificial intelligence to the impact of an asteroid with the earth shows not only how seriously some are concerned about developments in the technology, but for many it may cause them to feel less threatened by the AI, because of how tangible an asteroid is. If we can see it; it poses a larger threat.

Nicholas Smith's curator insight, March 21, 2013 9:29 PM

This is a particularly interesting article which tells readers that artificial intelligence may be more of a threat to humanity than disasters, such an asteroids, global warming and even nuclear war. This theory should definitely be taken into consideration as we are already making huge advancements in artificial intelligence and in the near future, robots will most likely be smarter than humans.

 

The aim of this article is to put forward the idea that robots could do more harm to us than help us. Robots could also be a threat in the sense that they may be misused and used for harm and not for good, more so. This article is extremely interesting and is definitely something that could happen in the future, if artificial intelligence is misused by people. This was generally a worthwhile read and was useful to my research at it provides an alternative idea for the uses of artificial intelligence, stating that they could pose an extremely large threat to us.

 

The limitations to this article as that it is extremely long and draws out the information throughout the article. I still believe that this is an extremely useful article and something that can be used in my research topic as it directly relates to the future of artificial intelligence.

Tom Gilbert's insight:

Even though most see the development of artificial intelligence as a future full of robots to do our every whim, it is very likely that it will be discovered through militiary actions, much like most of the technological marvels invented over the past century. Plato infamously wrote that democracy ultimately ends with government becoming tyrannious and turning against their people, and it has been shown through history time and time again, in germany, spain, italy, japan even, so one must ask themself how long until history repeats? our leading nation in science and technology (yes, america) may very well use forms of artificial intelligence in militiary scenarios and bring more death to the world with only mechanical parts being risked; no human lives on their end.

The use of robot in the military.
Nicholas Smith's curator insight, March 21, 2013 4:00 AM

This article aims to speak about the use of robotics and Artificial Intelligence in warfare. Writer Jason Dorrier speaks about UK's new robot aircraft and speaks about numerous other drones which are used for warfare.

 

This article raises a strong point in roboethics, in the sense that these robots are being misused to cause harm, instead of doing good. This article is quite helpful in regards to the misuse of robots and what possibilties are ahead for not only warfare, but robotics in general. The author of this article focuses on bringing up the points about whether these military robots will be misused by people and the future of drone technology.

 

This piece of information will help greatly with my research topic as it gives a general idea as to what the military may use robots for in the future.

Scientists Have Built an Internet for Robots

Scientists Have Built an Internet for Robots | 1012ICT Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
Scientists in Europe have put together a "standardised knowledge base for robots," through which robots can exchange information with other robots using cloud computing.

Artificial Intelligence has been created enabling other Artificial Intelligence (such as robots) to communicate wireless through a cloud network. They are even able to access other information (on the internet for example) to use to "communicate" with the other Artificial Intelligence.
Rachel May's curator insight, March 22, 2013 2:54 AM

1. Artificial Intelligence / 2. Cloud Computing

 

A 'standardised knowledge base for robots' has already been developed, allowing robots to share information through cloud computing. This alleviates any issues of individual robots needing to 'learn' as any 'lessons' are accessible through the cloud. This also results in a decreased need for internal memory which means the physical robot would require less power etc.

This raises questions for me about these 'lessons' and the human that is 'teaching' this robot. Who says that the way I want my shirt folded is the way my neighbour wants theirs folded? Obviously this is a very small scale, but when you think about the intentions of potential teachers, does this open up a wide range of different network security or personal security issues? Is there a third party approving new 'lessons', and how would this be managed?

Studies show that a newly developed wireless, implantable, rechargeable brain-computer interface has been created and that in the future it may be used to help people with bad motor functions and paralyzed people to use the power of their brain to do tasks such as move a robotic arm or even access information using a wireless connection.
