“AI Will Not Displace Humans, It’s Going to Enhance Us”

Posted by Peter Rudin on 10. November 2017 in News

Ray Kurzweil, chief engineer for Google and famous futurist, spoke in a discussion held at the Council on Foreign Relations early November, this year. He emphasized how AI would enhance humankind, despite the possibility of “difficult episodes.”

In short, according to Kurzweil, there will be a melding of humans and machines as a result of the singularity and the growth of AI. Kurzweil said that we’re already experiencing this with our smartphones, which he referred to as “brain extenders.”

Kurzweil’s view corresponds with Scenario 2 of our recent essay titled” What happens when Artificial equals Human Intelligence”, posted on November 3, 2017.
