Artificial intelligence: world improver, profit optimizer or top spy? (Review of ‘Scary smart’) Mo Gawdat)
Everyone seems to be concerned about COVID, but the impact of the virus on our society is insignificant compared to what is happening to us right now with artificial intelligence. Robots and computers can easily beat humans at chess or the complicated GO-game and an expert audience is hardly able to distinguish a Bach composition by the computer from a real Bach composition. Computers are learning themselves literally everything and this process is irreversible.
Not everyone has a passion for computers, but there is a revolution going on in the world of machines. We should no longer close our eyes for this evolutionary development if we want to improve the conditions for people, animals and the earth. Fortunately for people who are not interested in computers there are people like Mo Gawdat. They understand the art of explaining artificial intelligence in understandable language.
