2030 Cyborg Uprising? | Artificial intelligence
We often hear about the eventual robot uprising, especially when it comes to the advances being made in artificial intelligence. Bright minds like Tesla co-founder Elon Musk and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban warn of the potential downsides, hinting at a possible Skynet scenario playing out in real life. But if you ask Ray Kurzweil, and AI expert and futurist who works at Google, what his thoughts are on the subject, he will tell you that we will be cyborgs within the next couple of decades.
During a question-and-answer session last week at the Council for Foreign Relations, Kurzweil talked about the fear people have, that AI threatens the progress we have collectively made and could lead to our extinction.
