AI itself on the impact of the AI revolution on humanity, the negative impacts of AI and Machine Learning, and God.
An AI view on its impact on Humanity
Despite the potential, the promise is daunting: in a single generation, the technology is expected to be able to automate much of the work of many human beings. However, the potential is not without its perils.
The AI revolution will take a while to work its way through society and may even exacerbate existing conflicts. In short, the promise is so great that we must not be complacent, and we must make decisions that will lead us to build a better society and the best technology for doing so.
AI is already an enormous force in the modern world. But the way the future is being framed by today’s media, we get only one side of the story.
The “AI Revolution” is presented as a way to create jobs, wealth, and prosperity, or as creating a utopia, with AI will enabling more and better decisions to be made, and enabling a better use of our knowledge and skills in the areas we have the most influence.
The future will not be the same as the past. The current AI revolution that the tech industry is promoting is a system that is designed to create one job for all, and to eliminate the jobs of manual labor, including farmers, workers, and soldiers, to name a few.
In fact, the “AI Revolution” is a system designed to reduce the number of jobs and to enhance the ability of automation to replace them. It is nothing more than a massive, uncontrolled system that has been implemented in the name of progress and has been hijacked by the AI and machine learning industry.
As the technology continues its ascent, AI is now playing a major role in the way we learn, how we work, and how we live. While much of this progress has not come with the blessings of a strong and loving God, it has, in fact, been produced by human ingenuity and the contributions of countless individuals.
There is a place for human ingenuity
“In the modern world, human ingenuity has become a powerful driver of innovation and progress,” says Dr. Steven Pinker, a professor of psychology at Harvard University and the author of the book, The Better Angels of Our Nature. “The fact that humanity is doing this is a victory for humanity.”
Dr. Pinker suggests that we can and should applaud the contributions of humans to the advancement of technology, not only for their contributions to the creation of AI, but also for their contributions to the advancement of knowledge itself.
If we truly are working with God, we should be working to make the knowledge of God’s grace available to us once again.
As technology advances, we are no longer isolated from one another. As a result, we are able to learn from each other and to share our experiences with each other.
“The more we are able to share our knowledge, the more we are able to learn from each other,” says Dr. Pinker. “If you can share your knowledge, then that’s all the more reason to have access to that knowledge.”
