Artificial General Intelligence: A technology with more Cons than Pros

Artificial General Intelligence

Artificial general intelligence will be a technology that pairs its general intelligence with deep reinforcement learning.


It is not every day that humans are exposed to questions like what will happen if technology exceeds the human thought process. Or what will happen if machines became conscious or start having conscience so that they can take decisions, equivalent to that of humans? Sounds Catastrophic, Right? However, scientists and researchers are looking out for an alternative solution that can perform tasks which the traditional artificial intelligence and its subsidiaries cannot. Termed as Artificial General Intelligence, this cutting edge technology has been acknowledged by scientists and researchers, since the inception of artificial intelligence. Artificial general intelligence will be the technology that pairs its general intelligence with deep reinforcement learning.

The technology is said to be so advanced that it will replicate the human cognitive capabilities. Its artificial neural networks will not only emulate human behavior but will also compete with intelligence. The technology will ask questions to it, formulate a solution, and will chalk out hypothetical strategies before making any decision. It will perform every task that has been fed to the human minds about AI with sci-fi movies like Terminator. By utilizing deep learning patterns, big data and reinforcement learning, it will attain the capability to adapt itself in different situations and environments.

Research labs like OpenAI are already working to create AI more diverse so that technology can contribute to human advancement. However, with curiosity about AGI, the researchers need to pause and analyse, what is in store for humans if this technology actually comes into existence?


Benefits of the Artificial General Intelligence

The existing artificial Intelligence is heavily scrutinized under the lens of uncertainty. Despite being coherent, the technology has been tagged to have too many discrepancies. The researchers and scientists are plagued by the ethical challenges of traditional AI. Moreover, since the traditional artificial intelligence models function by simply learning the task, and without understanding the context of the task, it needs constant human supervision. Henceforth, AGI is identified to be a suitable alternative to perform tasks without human supervision.

With its robust computational processing power, flexible thinking and reasoning, if this technology comes into existence, it is expected to eliminate issues such as disease, hunger, general and political chaos. With its extreme automation power, it would eradicate the need for human or manual labour and in extension the value of money. Pretty much what is displayed in Sci-fi movies!

Moreover, since the world is in an urgent need of medical innovations, especially at a time when COVID 19 vaccine is in urgent need, AGI will aid to find the cure of diseases like cancer and AIDS. Additionally, once this technology becomes a possibility, its capabilities will be beyond human perception, which will benefit humans to a certain extent.


Perils of Artificial General Intelligence

While researchers are looking at the benefits associated with AGI, we must address that the biggest peril for humanity will be AGI itself. As singularity forms the basis of AGI, the consequences of AGI become unimaginable. There are possibilities that it can develop a hostile attitude against the human race, thus terminating anything that comes in its path. Moreover, if handled by notorious groups, AGI can turn into a weapon of mass destruction.

Additionally, humans will question their existence constantly with the development of AGI. Since the intelligence power of AGI is expected to be either more or equivalent to that of humans, the chances of humans getting mental disparities increases. Since there are no ethical rules chartered for the utilization of any technology, AGI with its computational capabilities cannot be undermined.

We need a solution that terminates the risk of humans entering into a situation, where they have to worry about their existence. As advancement in the artificial intelligence model, Brain Simulator II enables experimentation into diverse AI algorithms to develop an end-to-end AGI system with modules for vision, hearing, robotic control, learning, internal modelling, and event planning, imagination, and forethought. Moreover, it is focused on building a system which can learn about object permanence, spatial relationships, and time/causality.
