Tera Thomas O’Brien sees a few problems with the future of technology.
If music can be created by artificial intelligence that is indistinguishable from music created by a human (or a pop band), how far are we from reading articles in our favorite trade rags or online newspapers that are created by similar artificial intelligence?
No far, I fear.
Already some action games– completely artificial in nature– are difficult to tell from similar actions on TV shows and in movies. How far are we from movie stars and TV stars that are not human at all, but merely digital creations that look and act human, and for now, fully controlled by humans and programmers, but that’s only first generation. How much longer before those created programs begin to program themselves?
I see this coming and it makes me a little uncomfortable when so-called artificial intelligence can look, perform tasks, write, sing, and play music like a human.
