The development of artificial intelligence has come a long way throughout the decades. With all of the advancements seen by consumers and designers, I think that many people think that singularity and artificial intelligence will be achieved at some point in the future. However, I do not believe this to be completely true. In regards to singularity, the Singularity Institute states ( SIAI, 2011): “One mind significantly beyond the humanly possible level would represent a Singularity. All it takes is one technology – Artificial Intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, or perhaps something unforeseen – that advances to the point of creating smarter-than-human minds.” We still have many decades before the advancement of artificial intelligence is introduced into society. One of the major steps that is a major area in the progress of AI development is implementing human integrity into the programming of AI, therefore “affecting our collective welfare: eradicating diseases, averting long-term nuclear risks, and living richer, more meaningful lives.” (SIAI, 2011).

Unformatted text preview: Do I think that we will experience AI implementation? Not completely. Do I think it is a good idea? Not at all. The outcome that comes to mind when artificial intelligence and singularity are discussed is the obstacles that were experienced in the movie I, Robot. If we build these types of technologies that have been discussed, why would we build them to be smarter than us, and open us up for the chance of being overtaken by such things? References SIAI.
