I'd like to keep and maintain our Bill of Rights...the U.S. Constitution. Any erosion of the freedoms it protects thus far has been man made, but AI is manmade as well, and it arrived some time ago. No matter how crazy the activities or appearance of a smart machine may appear, its brain is occupied with algorithms based on "if/than" logic created by a human. One of the first lies will be "the AI took over and there was nothing we could do."
There is the idea that smarter machines will look to increase efficiency and therefore move to eliminate inefficiencies but as far as it relates to humans and life, Eugenics and Euthanasia are human ideas and would certainly be nothing new. Look to more affluent nations and try to understand how they treat their average person, and their addicted, their poor, their elderly and homeless. Would all care and opportunity provided or offered be improved upon or lessened if responsibility could be placed on machines? In terms of truths, the instant replay in sports and the increase of cameras everywhere, as well as all the other data points that can be obtained, would seem to imply that no one could possibly get away with anything illegal but some people always do, don't they?
Someone a while back wrote about how AI could be combined with mediocrity, like most customer service these days, and that would eliminate a lot of human jobs. I found that insightful. But I don't fear robots.
I don't fear that some mean machine will tear me limb from limb. I'm afraid that a smaller and smaller group of people will control the brains behind the machines.
So the real question is not what to do with AI and robots but "who decides" what it does/they do.
Fortunately we live in a democracy where the people decide...
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
