Anticipating what spews forth from the up-coming presidential debate, which is the biggest threat: fake, factious falsehoods of fools or the autonomy of inhuman robots? Scientists are mulling over the latter at the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Buenos Aires, Argentina while political scientists roll their eyes at the former.
The Guardian at http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jul/27/musk-wozniak-hawking-ban-ai-autonomous-weapons notes:
Musk and Hawking have warned that AI is “our biggest existential threat” and that the development of full AI could “spell the end of the human race”. But others, including Wozniak have recently changed their minds on AI, with the Apple co-founder saying that robots would be good for humans, making them like the “family pet and taken care of all the time”.
So too is what comes forth from the insanities of the candidacies.
