Essay 5: The Future of Artificial Intelligence
“One day the AIs are going to look back on us the same way we look at fossil skeletons on the
plains of Africa. An upright ape living in dust with crude language and tools, all set for
extinction”-Nathan,
Ex Machina
Background:
.
In the 2015 movie,
Ex Machina
, Nathan, an eccentric genius, develops Ava, a robot who is
somehow conscious. Through the film, Ava is put through multiple experiments only to outsmart
her creator in the end and integrate herself in human society. The film is fictitious, of course, but
it is not as far from the possible as we may think. From self-driving cars to Siri enabled phones,
in recent years, humanity has made great advances in technology. The next big technological
step may be the development of such impressive artificial intelligence that it is undistinguishable
from humans, with its own ability to think, feel, perceive, make decisions and respond. While
many scientists are enthralled by the idea of a fully conscious AI, others fear that it may one day
outsmart humanity and lead to dangerous consequences. In your articles from the past few
weeks, you have seen arguments on both sides of the spectrum.
Now it is time to take your own stance. For this essay, answer the question below, using support
from the articles we read for class and additional sources if needed (not required but
