NO doubt that AI can replace the human efforts. but somewhere AI is used in worlds top brand companies.

Haleem AH says:

he even sounds like an a.i being…

Kid Power says:

Nice but what happens if these fuckers become "self-aware"? I expect the first aware robots to work together and work in the shadows to secretly create the first prototype of the terminator and hack into main systems to control all military bases with weapons that can be controlled. I just hope it will happen towards the end of my lifetime, would love to see it happen but not long enough to really live it either

Nauseum says:

oh cool comments are enabled, must not be a video about feminism or Islam.

Frank Blackcrow says:

Microsoft had a chance with their Cortana and all they did was make a Siri clone.

Jeong-hun Sin says:

When it comes to A.I., what I want to see is general intelligence, not these specific expert types. The A.I. plays Go better than the world champion, but it cannot do simple things that any 4-year old can do… or even a dog can do.
These types of A.I.s are boring to me. When can we meet an A.I. that is at least as smart as a dog?

Gregg Hill says:

Never mind silly "Terminator" style scenarios, the real danger from AI is the threat it poses to human employment. Likely the people who don't give a damn about domestic employment being wiped out by outsourcing will be the same ones who won't give a damn about human employment being wiped out by mechanization, in the latter case as in the former defending it as progress that is both beneficial and inevitable, not affecting their own material prospects of course other than possibly enhancing them.

The singularity is near (I pray)


Global elite are hysterical. They can't get their AI robots built fast enough. They are losing the propaganda war and the public is increasingly aware of who is running the show and what their intentions are. They need an army of AI robots to replace a good percentage of us. If we're going to reduce population by 90%, you need an army of robots to do the work of those 90% once they're gone.

Grandma Mo Says says:

Yes, the A.I.may one day wipe us out and that would likely save the planet. Are we really the superior species? Look at all the.damage mankind has done with our pollution, over hunting, over fishing and war. A.I. Would be smarter than that.

Wade C says:

What will happen to humanity when Robots take away all the jobs, do all the thinking. What will independent thinking robots need to keep humans around for? Zoo animals maybe if they will allow programed empathy to be and remain a part of
their programing. Roboticist's, There is no one dumber or unethical than people working to put them selves, their families and neighbors out of work. Even menial repetitive task jobs and slavery are better than homelessness, starvation.

Great vid The National, you guys rock

awss jalal says:

Humans will still win when it comes to Ideation, however what these guys are trying to accomplish is to eliminate jobs which falls under a very narrow use case of A.I.

tmacc says:

terminator is coming

PurpleHairClip says:

Why is this not problematized in any way? Why actively strive to replicate human qualities? Humanity has always been a degenerative species… This won't lead to its cognitive expansion, but its pathetic withering away. I hope these engineers and programmers get the worst of the blow back.
