Machines could leave more than half of the population Jobless in the next 30 years, according to a computer scientist who said on Saturday that Artificial Intelligence’s threat to the economy should not be underestimated.
Robots Could Leave Half Of The World Unemployed, says Experts
Expert namely Moshe Vardi told American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), “We are approaching a time when machines will be able to outperform humans at almost any task.
“I believe that society needs to confront this question before it is upon us: If machines are capable of doing almost any work humans can do, what will humans do? The question I want to put forward is, ‘Does the technology we are developing ultimately benefit mankind?”
Last year same warnings were issued by Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and Elon Musk. Stephen Hawking warned that Artificial Intelligence “could spell the end of the human race” and Elon Musk said it portrays “our biggest existential threat”.
Vardi maintained that machines will obviously make our life easier but humanity will have to face a tough challenge.
“I do not find this a promising future, as I do not find the prospect of leisure-only life appealing,” he said. “I believe that work is essential to human well being.”
Vardi has also observed that what will happen if the Artificial Intelligence will take place of human labor. Vardi also composed the topic for the Atlantic. In this topic he questioned whether future needs us or not.
He describes the problems that are with Artificial Intelligence, namely the economic restructuring that would be needed for this type of society and that too for our own welfare. He further said “People tell me that my concerns apply only to a future that is so far away that we need not worry about it,”.
“I find this answer to be unacceptable. 2045 is merely a generation away from us. We cannot shirk responsibility from concerns for the welfare of the next generation. We cannot blindly pursue the goal of machine intelligence without pondering its consequences.”
So, this is all about the Artificial Intelligence that may put half of the world at distress because of the unemployment. Human Labor would soon decline and Robots could take place of it, thus affecting economy of the humans. It is true that Robots will save our time and benefit us, but at same time they also have numerous disadvantages. Give your opinions about the AI in the below section.
