Keep calm .. don’t panic about AI .. and celebrate being human 🤩
In an op-ed for the The New York Times, the highly respected linguist and professor, Noam Chomsky said that although the current spate of AI chatbots such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Bing AI “have been hailed as the first glimmers on the horizon of artificial general intelligence (AGI)” — the point at which AIs are able to think and act in ways superior to humans — we absolutely are not anywhere near that level yet 👀💬
There’s no way that machine learning as it is today could compete with the human mind.
While currently available AI chatbots may seem to mimic human creativity and ingenuity, they are doing so only based on statistical probability, and not as a result of the kind of deeper knowledge and understanding that is inherent in all human thought processes.
In fact todays ‘AIs’ are “stuck in a prehuman or nonhuman phase of cognitive evolution,” Chomsky argued.
So .. don’t believe the hype and those seeking to push a dystopian agenda. Instead, pay attention to what’s real and what is not.
