Does a surrealist dystopian nightmare await us if an artificial super intelligence decides to enslave the human race in the future?
Well no, AI doesn’t work like that. The nightmare scenarios that most experts see as a possibility involve us being wiped out rather than enslaved. AIs will only work towards the realization of the goals that they’re programmed to reach. There would be no moral consideration only action meaning, working towards the fulfilment of its programming, if it there is a more efficient use of the Earth’s resources than sustaining the 7.5 billion people the AI would simply pivot towards that use of the resources. We wouldn’t become enslaved because we’re just not that efficient at doing jobs compared to machines that have been specifically designed to do those jobs.
Grim I know, so how about a bit of inspiration to lift our spirits? What we need is Inspiro Bot. Inspiro Bot is the world’s first Artificially Intelligent bot designed to create inspirational quotes. AI is our friend you see. A very weird friend but a friend no less.
Inspiro Bot is perfect use for advanced machine learning algorithms in today’s social media dominated world. Why say something when you quote some hero from days gone by, can now be replaced by why say something when you can simply throw some automated quote at the world. The big thing here though is that it is not randomly generated gibberish. It is soulless gibberish but then aren’t 95% of all Instagram accounts soulless anyway?
The inrpirational posters spat out by Inspiro Bot can be funny, can be intelligent, can be dark and sometimes they can even be inspirational. They all make sense though on some level, which is a real achievement. They are definitely not human, however, which is why I felt like was living in a robot version of George Orwell’s 1984 when I was going through them. They’re exactly the type of thing I’d expect an AI Big Brother to be screaming at me, throughout the day, to take away my will to challenge the futility of my own existence.
They are cool though and as I’m living today in a free society I can celebrate them for the novelty that they are. Check out some more below and then head over to Inspiro Bot yourself.
