Age of A.I.: And Our Human Future, Henry A Kissinger, Eric Schmidt, Daniel Huttenlocher.
Por razones que Henry Kissinger explica de este modo:
“I think the technology companies have led the way into a new period of human consciousness, like the Enlightenment generations did when they moved from religion to reason, and the technologists are showing us how to relate reason to artificial intelligence.
“… kind of “epoch-making transformations” they will deliver may send human history in a dangerous direction.
“We are moving into a new period of human consciousness which we don’t yet fully understand. When we say a new period of human consciousness, we mean that the perception of the world will be different, at least as different as between the age of enlightenment and the medieval period, when the Western world moved from a religious perception of the world to a perception of the world on the basis of reason, slowly. This will be faster.
“So you are then in a world of potentially total destructiveness and substantial uncertainty as to what you’re doing…” TIME, Henry Kissinger’s Last Crusade: Stopping Dangerous AI.
The Economist, “The Age of AI is a salutary warning to handle this technology with care and build institutions to control it. Human values and peace must not be taken for granted, the book urges. “While the advancement of ai may be inevitable,” it concludes, “its ultimate destination is not.” With his co-authors Mr Kissinger has, at the age of 98, used his vast experience and versatile mind to make a muscular contribution to one of the 21st century’s most pressing debates.” → Henry Kissinger and Eric Schmidt take on AI.
Las negritas son mías.
Muy groseramente, a juicio de Kissinger, la Inteligencia artificial anuncia una nueva era de contornos sombríos: Dios (Edad Media) y la Razón (Ilustración) dieron un “sentido” religioso o racionalista a la marcha de la historia. La Inteligencia artificial anuncia un mundo sonámbulo, imprevisible, sombrío, dominado por fuerzas cuya “ceguera” escapa a nuestra razón y conducen a la humanidad por una ruta peligrosa e inquietante.
