ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – HOPE OR DOOM

Argjent Mehmedi

Abstract


Humanity has always strived to find new ways to facilitate our way of living and communication. Once upon a time, there were the ancient civilizations, then came the Industrial Revolution and, most recently, the enormous progress in the field of computer technologies. At first, all of these developments were accepted as era-defining and vastly positive assets for the human race. However, as witnessed by almost all of us, things weren’t always as black and white as they seemed; there was a consistent grey area inside the human psyche that these undertakings, no matter how conveniently looking to be, if gone wrong, they could spell doom to our society. Many scientists, fiction writers and humanists such as Isaac Asimov, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, etc. have continuously expressed a worrying viewpoint on these issues in general and on Artificial Intelligence in particular. In this paper, we will examine both the positive and negative views regarding AI and give a balanced analysis in trying to help the reader to have a more knowledgeable stance towards this matter. We will draw a line between what is considered science and science fiction, and what is probable and possible to happen in the mysterious future that awaits us.

Keywords: AI, cyberwar, robotics, technology, humanity.
