Thread of Artificial Intelligence

I read an article these days, which is about the thread of artificial intelligence. The idea of that article is basically about the growth curve of intelligence, which is a logarithm curve, and our human are in the time of the knee point where is the start of very fast intelligence increasing period.[1]

There is a simple reason that with the higher and higher processing speed of machines, we can do more and more calculations, and we aim to make them as smart as possible. However, we can already feel that, faster machines increase our working efficiency very much, it means that we can already do something that make the world more intelligent in an efficient way. We cannot imagine, how fast will the intelligence increases as if all the machine can also “Thinking”.(The real artificial intelligence).

But why fast intelligence increasing is not always good? We just afraid that the speed is too fast to be controlled by our human being. We afraid that robot will control our human just like in the science fiction movies, because we prefer sustainability, we prefer stability.

However, in my opinion, the real thing we should afraid of is the loss of affection between human and the degeneration among human. Because it is so common that people play their phones during a meal instead of chatting with people, that people getting use to shopping online without hanging a friend’s hand and people don’t even want to go to class and put a robot there, being a virtual themselves and being controlled by their master at home.[2](Luckily it’s only for sick student now)

All in all, let the intelligence grow fast, but don’t let our mind working slowly. Put away your phone when talk to a real people and balance the dependency between robot and your own body.

    Do you think that having an intelligence help us maintain our relationships would be normal in the future? This seems like a balance between keeping your mental well being in shape and our demands for smarter devices.

      Yes, you are right, I just hope the balance point won’t be more and more closer to the demand side.. 😛

    I don’ t think that’s going to happen. I think everybody prefer real contact above virtual contact. I think this technology can help to maintain relation s. Like long distance relation, …

      We hope it won’t happen, however, like some young generation, they are getting used to chatting via sms, although the contents are boring. They will focus on their phones without interacting with families.
