“With Facebook announcing its new AI developments, we are entering into a new era through the technology we have created as human race. It is going to change our lives.
“The corporations behind creating these tools call everything AI but when I was reading Facebook’s announcement, I came across two of their examples which didn’t seem AI to me: the example on ‘What mocktail pairs well with avocado pesto pasta?” which looks to be a simple big data search and the ‘surrounded by puppies’ example which is not necessarily done by AI agents.
“One thing to note is bearing in mind that AI systems are above and beyond ‘if A – then B’ models and if you see something that seems like an ‘if-then’ model, question its being a real AI system.
“I foresee a future where the corporations will give the tools to the people to create their own infinite universes and we will stop living only in the physical world. The virtual world will be a common space, and I’m not sure if that is a good thing for our future generation but that is where we are heading.
“We have to take the corporation’s word for saying that they ‘are committed to building “the AI models” responsibly’. I am not sure how many of you are ready for changing the future of your children without having any say in it but that is where we are moving.
“Hopefully when we are looking back 50 years later to this day, we will be satisfied with the way the world has changed through using technology.”
