Does artificial intelligence approach to a state in which it poses a threat to humans? Is the android, which replicates the human brain, the robot model that integrates among us?
Do we really need to feed the technological fear of overtaking robots? I believe that the answer is, rightly, no.
In reality the technology of machines, artificial intelligence and automation has taken a different path from that pictured in many shi fi movies or described i perfect details in many novels of the last century.
At the last meeting of the World Economic Forum, a report set, by 2020, the replacement of 5 million human jobs, with equally robots, in 15 countries around the world.
The gap between the five driver automation countries and the other one hundred and ninety-one of the world should become the theme of political agendas, much more and before the fear of labor saving.
The five major areas of the world ahead in robotics will take advantage of the technological boost on growth factors, on the one hand, but will also be found later in social policies and in the formation of human capital necessary for automation.
In Asian countries, starting from China, double-digit growth has leveled, as it should be, wages and treatments with the rest of the world.
It is in China that today, paradoxically, the most incisive phenomena of labor saving and of the “Robot replace human” are recorded in the traditional sense.
Conversely, the decline in labor costs as a factor in Asian delocalisation suggests possible returns to manufacturing in the West.
The nightmare of the “Robot replace human” and of the destruction of the jobs omits all this: the human work in the factory is not destined at all to disappear.
If we look at the big picture, which is starting to become impressive, robotic machines in service activities are not the naive model of the handyman and independent robot, proposed by science fiction films.
Compared to the initial expectations of techno-utopism, the prediction of exceeding the threshold between the intelligent computer and the human brain moves further and further into time.
In 1997 the most impressive of the intelligent computing companies was also the most bitter of the denials of techno-utopism: a robot can surpass, undoubtedly, the human brain in computing power, but it fails to perform anything that may even resemble the thinking of a newborn in the state, just, precognitive.
The difference between mind and computer will remain, perhaps forever, confined to the distance that passes between the computing power of a computer and a robotic machine and the ability of learning of the human brain.
In no conceivable robot can emotion ever be wired: the specific prerequisite of knowledge and functioning of our brain.
Franco defines itself as a person trapped in a sedentary lifestyle, however, he is an avid fitness “addict” and like, many more in his environment spends vast parts of his leisure time on a gym, running, cycling.
