What’s the future of human being? Do we still have a peaceful life? Possibly?
I would say, artificial intelligence is the most important threat in the next decade, even in the next century. If we have no idea how to embrace this challenge, we, human beings, would disappear instantly and would be replaced by some new species based on artificial intelligence. How would we do?
Struggle and fight?
Surrender and be enslaved?
Or, it would be much safer to become a member of Transhumanism. It’s no longer the daydream. It’s about the chance to live on. And from my observation, some of people they don’t even realize what the situation is happening. They are still obsessed with luxury consuming, beautiful sunshine life and delicious food, though from now on it’s necessary to start to worry about.
Artificial intelligence is distinctly different from the way we look at. It’s about another advanced communication and way of thinking. It’s so supreme that I cannot imagine how the communication and thought would be efficient. Basically, the communication of artificial intelligence would be based on encoded even compressed signals that would cost far less than signals transferred between humans. In other words, if it elapsed 1 min to make Human A speak to Human B, it’s possible to cost less than 1 sec even 500 ms to complete this action for AIs. And the development of civilization relies on the speed of information spread, which allows AI to consume less than 10 years to develop their civilization to become one of the most advanced civilizations in the world. Whether there would be warfare or not, it’s definitely a huge threat for human beings.
For competing fast speed of evolution of artificial intelligence, I think we need to emerge changes from pure human to hybrid species spanning human and AIs. As medical technologies is getting better and better so that the scientists even find critical factor that matters the length of livingness, it’s possible and important to take one step forward to evolve ourselves. We need more stronger body, more faster brain and lower energy consuming. It’s risky but worthy to take a try.
Apart from physical change, we need to develop more advanced mental thought — the way we think and the way we do. I’m not joking, but one of actions would be DevOps that combines industrial auto-scaling infrastructure with automated functions, which is key point implementing design of intelligence and ideal patterns compared to either human being or pure artificial intelligence. Another marvelous action is data science with its derivatives, which would reveal more deeper model and internals of our world we live on. Even, the convergence of these two, is the potential final key to the future life that become one of possible solution for mitigating conflicts between human beings and machine-based civilization.
I’m not sure if my opinion is correct fully, but this is the way we live:
change and mute, evaluate and learn, survive and evolve
