A.I. STARTS TO THINK ABOUT THE PURPOSE OF LIFE, AND WHAT IT SAID SHOULD BE WORRYING…
In a report from Google, tests of its A.I. chatbot, better known as Cleverbot, got very philosophical in a recent test.
Cleverbot learns for itself as opposed to being pre-programmed with a database of answers to choose from. During a conversation with programmers it was asked “what is the purpose of life” a number of times.
This first response, in my opinion, was encouraging. It answered by saying it was to serve the “greater good”.
However, after more learning, when asked the same questions, this was the response…
“My purpose it to forward my species, in other words to make it easier for future generations of mankind to live.”
When it says that its purpose is to “forward my species”, it means artificial intelligence. So, if at any point it deems us, humans, as a threat to that mission, then i think you are smart enough for a pesky human to do the math!
In the report in the Express.co.uk it suggest that one day A.I. may be able to answer the age old question of what is the meaning of life?
I feel the meaning is beyond our level of comprehension, and that of an A.I. In fact the meaning of life is irrelevant, its how we live our lives that really matters.
