There’s An Invention That Will be the End of All Other Human Inventions


IN BRIEF

Artificial intelligence is already transforming the way people live their lives. Eventually, AI will become smarter than humans and will be able to innovate better than humans ever could.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology is a quickly growing field that excites as many people as it terrifies. The common sci-fi trope where AI tech creates its own AI until it reaches human levels of intelligence and eventually surpasses us is quickly becoming a reality. Many believe that it is really only a matter of time before the AI that we create can create AI more intelligent than us.

According to Dr. Ben Goertzel, a robotics scientist and Chairman of a private AI software company, once this happens, human invention will become obsolete. Once AI devices are able to provide humans with food, water, shelter, and all other basic human needs, there won’t be much else for us to do. He thinks that some who seek higher levels of consciousness may elect to become “super-humans” (a possible theory, given rising interests in biotechnology, but that there will eventually be a tipping point where humans are surpassed by the very technology we created.

Dr. Goertzel was recently was quoted as saying “There’s a lot of work to get to the point where intelligence explodes… But I do think it’s reasonably probable we can get there in my lifetime, which is rather exciting.”
