The Dangers of Super Stupidity: Why We Should Be More Concerned Than Afraid of AI

Super Stupidity is the real enemy, not super intelligence

I was invited to take part in a large event where I will be discussing Artificial Intelligence and Super Intelligence with some experts (I do not consider myself an expert).

This TED talk from Grady Booch was just what I needed to help me prepare for my presentation.

No matter whether you agree with or disagree Mr. Booch’s view, it’s clear that we still live in an era of weak AI. We are far away from general AI and even further from a possible Super Intelligence. Machine Learning offers us a huge opportunity today. It is possible to use algorithms in conjunction with humans to help solve our greatest challenges, such as climate change, poverty and health.
