Not everyone is enthusiastic
Google has announced that it is on the verge of creating a comprehensive artificial intelligence. This is an opportunity to learn and manage many different tasks.
Leading researcher at Google’s DeepMind division, Dr. Nando de Freitas, boldly said that “the game is over” and that the scaling of AI will lead to a transition to AGI (Artificial General Intelligence), reports Futurism.
DeepMind is one of the places where scientists are trying to achieve comprehensive artificial intelligence. In practice, he will be able to acquire super-intelligence if he is fed up with sufficiently large and comprehensive databases.
Such artificial intelligence will be able to be used for a variety of tasks without the need for programming from scratch. He will be able to learn different things at the same time and in practice would be similar to the artificial intelligence from the movies.
Achieving AGI has been the number one goal of scientists since the last century. The implementation of such an algorithm turned out to be more difficult than expected, because according to many forecasts, comprehensive artificial intelligence should have already been achieved.
It is believed that the huge number of databases for each aspect of life will facilitate the creation of AGI. However, not everyone is so enthusiastic. Many scientists believe that such artificial intelligence could pose an existential threat to humanity.
