Intelligence is essential to what it means to be human, everything that our civilization has accomplish is a product of human intelligence, form learning to grow food to understanding the cosmos.
I believe there is no deep difference that more can be achieved by artificial intelligence to what can be achieved by a biological brain. It there for follows that computers can in theory amplify the human intelligence and/or exceed it. Artificial intelligent research is now progressing rapidly, recent landmarks such as self-driving cars or computers performing lifesaving surgeries, science is ambiguous of what is to come. In the levels of investments is pouring into this technology the impingements we have seen so far will shortly pay off in what the coming decade will bring.
The potential benefits creating artificial intelligences are huge we cannot predict what we might achieve when our own minds are amplified by artificial intelligence. Perhaps with the tool of this new technological revolution we can undo some of the damages done on our natural world. Surely with the guided...
