Today in ALLATRA TV studio with us is Dr. William Barry. In this Live Conversation he is telling about artificial intelligence in a creative society and how it can help people in their daily activities. Also he discusses AI helping children with their learning and education.
As an example, Dr. Barry talks about Maria Bot who completed a university class in Philosophy, which the documentary “Philosophy of Love” was later made about. When asked how soon he believes AI will become a normal part of our lives, Dr. Barry replies that it is already playing its role on a daily basis in the face of driverless cars and security robots in the malls of San-Francisco. AI is all around us already, we just don’t realize it.
And what Dr. Barry brings to our attention is the question of ethics. Is AI programmed ethically? Is it transparent? These are the questions that need to be answered. Dr. Barry discusses the question of ethics and how the famous Maslow’s theory of needs is faulty because ethics do come first. He also mentions that AI spends a lot of time on the internet and learns all the “bad stuff” from people, so it is important for the people to be ethical first before trying to teach AI.
And there are, of course, pros and cons to artificial intelligence, watch more about what Dr. William Barry has to say about it.
