Nuestra invencion final

By James Barrat

En menos de un década, l. a. inteligencia man made podría alcanzar
—e incluso rebasar— a l. a. inteligencia humana. Las corporaciones
y los gobiernos en todo el mundo invierten cantidades
millonarias en lograr el santo grial de l. a. IA: una inteligencia a
nivel humano. Una vez que los angeles IA lo logre, argumentan los científicos,
tendrá impulsos de supervivencia tan intrínsecos como
los nuestros. Podríamos enfrentarnos a un rival mucho más malicioso,
poderoso y extraño de lo que jamás imaginamos.
La inteligencia man made determina qué libros compramos,
qué películas vemos, incluso con quién salimos. Le pone lo “inteligente”
a nuestros teléfonos, y en cualquier momento manejará
nuestros automóviles. Realiza l. a. mayoría de los intercambios
en Wall highway, y también controla los angeles energía important, el agua
y los angeles infraestructura de transportación. Pero los angeles IA también pone
en riesgo nuestra existencia.
A través de entrevistas con científicos, visionarios y expertos
de los angeles industria tecnológica, Nuestra invención ultimate explora los
peligros de l. a. negligente búsqueda de una IA superinteligente.
¿Lograremos convivir con seres cuya inteligencia menoscabaría
a los angeles nuestra? Y más importante aún, ¿nos lo permitirán?
