What will be the role of artificial intelligence in the future?
Let’s imagine that an AI was created. And it is more intelligent than any human. This system is capable of self-improvement and self-awareness. Exactly at the moment of creation, this AI will become the dominant phenomenon on Earth. Artificial intelligence will displace humans from everywhere. And humanity will simply become obsolete in an instant.
AI will not be created all at once. But elements of it will appear everywhere: transportation control, construction, robotics, database management, the Internet. Of course, it will be applied as it develops to social networks. And in time, social media will increasingly dominate human life.
More and more data will be uploaded by people to a variety of social networks. For example, medical records, games, relationships, interests, values, and cooperation tightly connected to social networks. Everything in the lives of everyone will be virtualized.
As it develops, AI technology will be adopted everywhere. And, of course, AI will be used in social media as well. It’s already happening, it’s just that these technologies are not visible to the user. No one thinks that AI is picking up interesting news for you on your social networks.
Also, there will soon be a neural interface that will replace smartphones. This is exactly what Elon Musk and his Neuralink project are doing. This neural interface will create a direct connection between the human brain and the Internet.
Social networks will become some kind of global neural network too. The role of corporations and social networks will quickly surpass the role of governments. And it’s already happening, Big Tech has just banned the president of the US.
More and more people will act as one. Hundreds of millions of artificial intelligence will act like one as well, gradually merging with the personalities of users.
Thus, almost simultaneously, a billion people will connect into a global Artificial Intelligence network. And this one of the scenarios of how we can avoid the conflict between AI and humanity.
