Artificial Intelligence (AI) will Match Human Intelligence by 2062
Sydney: In less than 50 years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will match humans on traits like adaptability, creativity and emotional intelligence, an expert has predicted. Speaking at the “Festival of Dangerous Ideas” at University of New South Wales in Sydney on Sunday, Professor Toby Walsh said AI will match human intelligence by 2062. “He considers 2062 the year that artificial intelligence will match human intelligence, although a fundamental shift has already occurred in the world as we know it,” the university said in a statement. Walsh argued that we are already experiencing the risks of AI that seem to be so far in the future.
“Even without machines that are very smart, I’m starting to get a little bit nervous about where it’s going and the important choices we should be making”, said Walsh who has written a book “2062: The World that AI Made”. Untangling the ethics of machine accountability will be the second fundamental shift in the world as we know it. “Fully autonomous machines will radically change the nature of warfare and will be the third revolution in warfare,” Walsh said. Walsh believes the issue is creating machines that are aligned with human values, which is currently a problem on other platforms driven by Artificial Intelligence. (IANS)
