Putin reveals fear that robots will one day “eat us”

Russian President discusses the potential of AI.

Post first appeared on RussiaFeed.


Russian President Vladimir Putin has weighed in on the artificial intelligence debate being hashed out by Silicon Valley tech leaders like Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.

Speaking to Arkady Volozh, chief of the Moscow based internet giant Yandex, Putin discussed the common fear that robots with artificial intelligence will one day “eat us”.

The Russian President asked the Yandex executive how soon AI will become mainstream.

Volozh said he hopes AI ‘never’ really takes over the planet as he sounded an optimistic note on the issue.

Earlier this month, Putin said whoever becomes master of Artificial Intelligence will rule the world.

At the beginning of this month, Putin said that AI is ‘the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind’.

But he also said that alongside its ‘colossal opportunities’ are ‘threats that are difficult to predict’.

He added: ‘Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.’

The president also promised to share any ‘know-how’ that Russia acquires in the field to avoid conflict over the technology.

But in expressing his concern about the future of AI, he joins Tesla founder Elon Musk, who is strongly in favour of regulating its development.

The South African-born billionaire worries that robots could one day take up arms against humans, a view recently challenged by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who remains ‘optimistic’ about the future of AI.

If the unilateral sanctions imposed by U.S. toward N.Korea has to be obeyed internationally, not by sides in particular, what’s the Guarantee newly installed AI regulations won’t be unilateral? Self AI development only Guarantee! And it’s a river of no return. That is what will lead us to extinction. That is exactly why “the robots will eat us”. Looks like we can listen to the war narrative for decades, but behind that curtain something much much bigger going on. Not to mention mandatory vaccination of newly born children against odd, so called “child diseases” (chicken pox, etc.), despite the fact… Read more »

Ok, I’ll take the bait. I assume it is bait, because, otherwise, I do not understand why this report is posted. First, let me refer you and The Duran readers to the broader context of Putin’s remarks concerning “AI”. http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/55493 These are Putin’s remarks at the Sept. 1 “Day of Knowledge” event. Sputnik https://sputniknews.com/russia/201709011057000758-putin-schoolchildren-world-lord/ then picked up Putin’s more specific remarks on “AI” from the exchanges that took place later. The former, officially posted and prepared remarks were the context for the later, more specific remarks, and they are both the context for the remarks about robots eating us made… Read more »

Hehe Good one GeorgeG. They dont even know what consciousness is, yeah, its material aka our Brains neurons farting, and down to cell level where the complexity is sky rocketing as we speak, and we end up drooling about Science contra religion, where I see the problem, old dying paradigm’s contra new ones, and to me, AI is an joke, period, nothing but an idiotic meme, like the memes they created by inventing computers, with Hard disk as an “brain” whom communicates thru wires, with an “language”, and so on, nice PR campaign but have nothing to do with reality… Read more »
