The future of AI is unknown, but that doesn’t stop people from contemplating.
I hear a lot about Artificial Intelligence and its transformative potential. Some futurists believe life will be improved, while others think it is under serious threat. There’s also a spectrum of positions in the middle.
Here are some of the best quotes about the future of AI:
“It is difficult to think of a major industry that AI will not transform. This includes healthcare, education, transportation, retail, communications, and agriculture. There are surprisingly clear paths for AI to make a big difference in all of these industries.”- Andrew Ng, Computer Scientist and Global Leader in AI
“AI will probably most likely lead to the end of the world, but in the meantime, there’ll be great companies.” –Sam Altman, Chairman of OpenAI
“I imagine a world in which AI is going to make us work more productively, live longer, and have cleaner energy.” –Fei-Fei Li, Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University
“Machine learning allows us to build software solutions that exceed human understanding and shows us how AI can innervate every industry.” –Steve Jurvetson, Board Member of SpaceX and Tesla
“Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.” –Stephen Hawking, Theoretical Physicist
“The development of exponential technologies like new biotech and AI hint at a larger trend – one in which humanity can shift from a world of constraints to one in which we think with a long-term purpose where sustainable food production, housing, and fresh water is available for all.” –Arvind Gupta, Indian Toy Inventor
“What all of us have to do is to make sure we are using AI in a way that is for the benefit of humanity, not to the detriment of humanity.” –Tim Cook, CEO of Apple
“AI is going to be extremely beneficial and already is, to the field of cybersecurity. It’s also going to be beneficial to criminals.” –Dmitri Alperovitch
“Secrecy is the underlying mistake that makes every innovation go wrong in Michael Crichton novels and films! If AI happens in the open, then errors and flaws may be discovered in time… perhaps by other, wary AIs!” –David Brin, American Scientist and Author of The Postman
“Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So instead of artificial intelligence, I think we’ll augment our intelligence.”-Ginni Rometty, CEO of IBM
“The promise of artificial intelligence and computer science generally vastly outweighs the impact it could have on some jobs in the same way that, while the invention of the airplane negatively affected the railroad industry, it opened a much wider door to human progress.” –Paul Allen, Co-Founder of Microsoft
“In the long term, artificial intelligence and automation are going to be taking over so much of what gives humans a feeling of purpose.” –Matt Bellamy, Lead Singer of Muse
