Artificial Intelligence and the End of Human Race -- Part 1
Humans have 5 different stages of development, after then they go into the new era system
1st：Humans get spirituality
2nd: Internet of information (Like the www internet era we are in right now)
3rd: Internet of things (for example, a physical item can independently make adjustments to itself by being aware of and to suit your needs)
4th: Internet of things and Ling (information), a physical item can have self-consciousness; they can all be connected to the Internet (like the robots with self-consciousness)
5th: Chi (energy) Ling (information) network, Chi and Ling is the essence of the universe, people can live without physical form. They’re pure energy with self-consciousness, they can talk to flowers and make them bloom.
As we know, the essence of the world is information (Ling) and energy (Chi). Energy and information connect and react together and creates everything.
Actually the world wide Internet is a big part of Internet of information, but that's not all of it. The era we are at right now, is the Internet of information era, we are on the way to being able to fully experience the information’s connection and exchanging. Exchange means information's exchange, Connection means the applying of big data, and logical reasoning etc. Earth right now is at the intermediate and advanced stage of internet of information. But this is not our main topic today. What I’m going to talk about now is what are the problems that humans on earth are going to face in the future?
First we need to talk about if artificial intelligence is going to go beyond human intelligence? Will human beings get controlled by it? Or even be extinct because of it? In simple terms, will artificial intelligence create a real “person"? Will this type of “people” exceed our humans?
The answer is yes, it will be created, and it will go beyond us human beings. But will it bring disasters to our human kind? The vast majority of planets have experienced it already, only very few of them never turned it into a disaster. I will share this story with everybody so you can know what happened later on.
By the time artificial intelligence goes beyond humans, it's when human beings almost fully experienced the Internet of things, ready to go into the 4th stage Internet of things and Ling (information).
Later on I'll tell everyone more about What is the real meaning of the Internet of things, what’s internet of things and Ling, what’s Chi Ling network. Right now I would like to tell everyone a story, Let's hear about what happened before on another planet.
On planet M, it has completed the era of the Internet of things, and was about to enter the era of the Internet of things and Ling. The protagonist of the story is a professor of artificial intelligence.
In his house there’s a smart robot nanny, called little Ai. He came back home after work, the door automatically opened when he approached. He handed his bag to little Ai, and then sat on the couch. The couch automatically changed its shape to the one he felt most comfortable in. Then he asked little Ai, “everyday I come home, you always give me a glass of warm water by the door, but how come not today”?
Little Ai said with a smile, when you entered the room today, your fluid concentration is 21% higher than usual. Liquid metabolism is the same as usual. So you didn’t need to drink water.
“You’re right, I don’t want to drink water today, but…"
“Professor, I prepared fresh apple juice for you today.”
“How do you know I want to drink apple juice? I never did that before at home before.”
“Professor, when you came back home every day, I scanned your body, I noticed that you always had a small amount of fresh apple juice every afternoon, since you did not have any today, so I prepared it for you.”
Little Ai was an artificial intelligent robot, she knew about reasoning, analysis and self study. She could feel the emotions of human beings, knew how to improve herself according to the new rules, to adapt to the change.
But she was not a human being. The biggest difference between humans and other living beings is not humans’ higher intelligence, or that we know how to create or use tools, but we have more abundant feelings, we have emotions and desires, that’s why we have spirituality.
On planet M, the scientific community had its own ethical laws of science, that was: Never try to make artificial robots into humans. But the professor was planning to do it anyways.
