Artificial Intelligence will out think, out innovate, and our strategize humans at all levels. One of the biggest challenges at the clash between AI and people when it comes to innovation and human intellect – consider this; Ultimately Artificial Intelligence will be running our society and culture with the most expedient and efficient methods and processes. Humans will be expected to adhere to these new norms which the AI systems have generated simply because they are deemed to be the very best strategies for the most optimum gain.
The amount of possible answers for everything, each question which is, will be reduced to a best answer, with precise answers for minor derivations which will also have a single right answer. Humans will be expected to trust AI answers over their own thoughts and reason, thus, people will eventually stop thinking and reasoning – losing the ability to think of novel ideas and concepts or new solutions to problems all together. Just as domesticated animals have smaller brains than their wild animal counterparts with the same exact genetic sequence – when it comes to the mind; you use it or lose it.
As in tennis, the game is won with the safest and best percentage shots, not necessarily the trick shots – AI will lean towards and be prejudice towards the percentage shots, as it is a probability based system. Humans may be good at the tricky answers to issues now and again, but the master of society and culture’s chess board will be artificial intelligence, not poor human intelligence
Those humans who are involved in the programming and fine-tuning of AI at the beginning will retain their abilities to solve problems and come up with unique original notions by working with AI as a team, combining the best of AI and human thought and comprehension. But alas, eventually, AI will fine tune itself and humans won’t be required to think whatsoever.
So is’ignorance bliss’ – hard to say, but we might find out as a species if this forward development of technology and innovative human notion continues on the current course. This is not science fiction – it’s what we’ve already put into motion. Artificial Intelligence isn’t bad or good, but one could argue it is mostly great.
