Whenever it happens, we should expect AI to surpass our own intelligence in many ways. As for now, we have no idea what it would look like, or even when it will happen. However, we do know the day will eventually happen.
The age of singularity
What is a singularity you ask? Well, it’s when humans can no longer predict what an AI will do. As expected, many folks view a future of singularity AI to be a huge problem humans must refrain from bringing into existence, but Damien Scott, a Stanford University business and energy and earth sciences graduate, doesn’t quite agree.
“We’ll start to see narrow artificial intelligence domains that keep getting better than the best human,” Scott told Inverse in an interview. “Calculators already outperform us, and there’s evidence that within two to three years, AI will outperform the best radiologists in the world.”
From what Scott is saying, the singularity is already here, but broken up across several different industries where AI exists. Soon enough, every industry will have an AI calling the shots, but to us, the real problem would come into play if humans create an artificial intelligence with every imaginable information baked into its brain.
