In the essay, “Artificial Intelligence Will Serve Humans, Not Enslave Them,” the author, Pedro Domingo, makes interesting points about the usefulness of machine learning and its evolution to what we now refer to as artificial intelligence. The author states, “Many worry that machines with these capabilities will use their newfound knowledge to take all our jobs, enslave us or even exterminate us. But that is unlikely to happen because they have no will of their own. Essentially all AI algorithms are driven by goals that we program, such as ‘find the shortest route from the hotel to the airport.’ Even as they get better at the task with experience, the goals remain unchanged. Essentially all AI algorithms are driven by goals that we program.” Do you agree with these ideas? Why or why not? Do you think that artificial intelligence will take over the world one day? If so, how? Can you think of examples of other things that have already “enslaved” humankind?
