Ever heard about superintelligence?
I’m sure you would have.
A superintelligence is an intelligence system that quickly improves its intelligence in a short period of time, with the goal of surpassing the cognitive aptitude of a typical human. Superintelligence has been used in science fiction and artificial intelligence debates to grasp some of the implications of a rapidly growing intelligence model in IT.
Part of the concept of superintelligence is that some types of artificial intelligence work have the potential to cause a “Runaway reaction,” in which artificial intelligence surpasses human thinking capacity and begins to influence or control humans in certain ways.
The concept of superintelligence is linked to the concept of “Singularity,” which is based on the idea that a catalyst or trigger will create fast change that is beyond human comprehension.
As a result, superintelligence figures prominently in many conversations regarding artificial intelligence ethics, how to proceed with artificial intelligence progress, and how to protect mankind from some of the risks associated with a potential runaway AI model.
The belief that superintelligence will come to damage humanity is predicated on the idea that artificial intelligence may find ways to control humans without leaving a specific interface or system, which does not appear to be very realistic given present technology.
Concerns about superintelligence may become more well-founded when interfaces and systems grow more interactive and humans approach virtual models of communication.
In conclusion, the notion of superintelligence, a rapidly expanding field of study aimed at better understanding what such computers would be like, how they might emerge, and what they might mean for humanity’s future.
