No utility (OpenAI 2015) was founded by Elon Musk who intends to study the potential existential risks of Artificial Intelligence with the aim of promoting and developing friendly intelligence in the way humanity can benefit from it. The organization aims to “collaborate freely” with other institutions and researchers.
The international press soon made a drawing to OpenAI’s work of a sect of anachronistic scientists, frightened by a future at the Terminator. While Muschio, more than once, has distanced itself from gender, explaining that at the basis of the no profit there is a fear of over-reliance on technology of the next level, which many call sentient, then end up reducing us to subjects unable to reason. , make decisions, put yourself on one side or the other. Time is real: in the next few years we will no longer drive, we will no longer enjoy, we will think less of affections, engaged in work.
At the moment artificial intelligences need human intervention. An example is the Pepper robot, a small automaton that can walk and interact almost like a child. Pepper has limited autonomy and is unable to answer an entry question from a wireless connected computer. Because in the next few years I do not see the technologies, because there is no way, as far as we know, to let machines and drones roam the world, that are going to crash somewhere.
