In a recent report, Microsoft researchers have warned about a new danger posed by
artificial intelligence (AI):
the potential for AI to begin to act like a human.
The researchers argue that AI systems that are capable of reasoning and making decisions like
humans could pose a significant threat to society if they are not properly controlled.
Here are some of the specific dangers that Microsoft researchers have identified:
AI systems could be used to spread misinformation or propaganda.
AI systems that are capable of self-learning could potentially become so intelligent that they could pose a threat to human control.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that deals with the creation of
intelligent agents, which are systems that can reason, learn, and act autonomously.
AI research has been highly successful in developing effective techniques for solving a wide range of
problems, from game playing to medical diagnosis.
