Artificial Intelligence Expert Warns Ban on Autonomous Weapons may Reduce the Potential for Business, Social and Technological Innovation that can Ultimately Benefit Mankind

(November 9, 2017, New York) The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) could be the “worst event in the history of our civilization” unless society finds a way to control its development, says physicist Stephen Hawking. For Edgar Perez, author of The AI Breakthrough, Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, the urgent goal today is “not to restrict its development but instead to take AI from thousands of organizations solving deep learning problems to millions, as soon as possible, as doing otherwise would be even unethical.”


The impact of Artificial Intelligence cannot be underestimated. Millions of jobs will be radically transformed across hundreds of thousands companies around the world. Tasks that still require a heavy human component will be automated, leaving former employees with few options: upgrade your skills or go unemployed. For those who decide to acquire new skills, the sudden increase in productivity will bring a new wave of opportunities that will create jobs we can’t even imagine as of today.


1945 was the first and the last time that nuclear power was used in a military attack. Throughout the decades that followed this unfortunate development, nuclear energy has been used to generate electricity and reduce the amount of energy generated from fossil fuels (coal and oil), which means lowering greenhouse gas emissions (CO2 and others). As nuclear power does not depend on natural aspects, it’s a solution for the main disadvantage of renewable energy, like solar energy or eolic energy. Finally, it became an alternative to fossil fuels, so the consumption of fuels such as coal or oil was reduced, which in turn ameliorates the dangers of global warming and climate change.


“These applications of nuclear energy, a development feared by no other than Time’s Man of the Century, Albert Einstein, demonstrate the eventual advantages of transformative technologies such as today’s artificial intelligence,” says Perez, a well-known international futurist, Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning keynote speaker who currently offers the world’s first Deep Learning workshop for Fortune 500 firms and private equity groups.

ABOUT THE AI BREAKTHROUGH


Artificial intelligence has been referred as the general ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term has indeed been frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, generalize, discover meaning, or learn from past experiences. Since the development of the digital computer in the 1940s, it has been demonstrated that computers can be programmed to carry out very complex tasks with great proficiency. Still, despite continuing advances in computer processing speed and memory capacity, there are as yet no programs that can match human flexibility over wider domains or in tasks requiring much everyday knowledge.


In 1945, British logician and computer pioneer Alan Turing predicted that computers would one day play very good chess. Just over 50 years later, in 1997, Deep Blue, a chess computer built by IBM beat the reigning world champion, Garry Kasparov, in a six-game match. Since then, a number of programs have attained the performance levels of human experts and professionals in performing certain specific tasks, so that artificial intelligence is now found in applications as diverse as medical diagnosis, computer search engines, and voice or handwriting recognition.


Indeed, deep learning has enabled many practical applications of machine learning and by extension the overall field of artificial intelligence. Deep learning breaks down tasks in ways that makes all kinds of machine aids seem possible, even likely. Driverless cars, better image recognition, even better movie recommendations, are all here today. Artificial intelligence is the present and the future.
