Artificial Intelligence at Google – What if?


Artificial Intelligence at Google – What If?

Genesis 1

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

It is important that we understand that man was created in the image of God and man became a creator as well. We can see how over time man has created modes of transportation, homes, businesses, and advances in medicine, governments and technology.

Computers, in one form or another, have been around for more than 70 years and systems like the Cray Computer were massive in size and completely unaffordable for household or small business usage. It wasn’t until the advent of more affordable home based computers with operating systems like Windows and Apple that anyone could afford to purchase.

My first computer was a home built windows-based desktop on which I learned to search the internet using a dialup modem and began building (from scratch) my first webpage using html code. Today some 23 years later I use a windows based desktops, laptops and my smartphone has more computing power than my first desktop.

After earning my BA degree in Information Systems Programming and Internet Development I used to think I was on the cutting edge of information technology. I couldn’t have been more wrong after watching this episode of 60 Minutes

S55 E30 – Exploring the human-like side of artificial intelligence at Google broadcast on April 16, 2023

60 Minutes: Exploring the human-like side of AI at Google – Full show on CBS Back to video Exploring the human-like side of artificial intelligence at Google | 60 Minutes 27min Competitive pressure among tech giants is propelling society into the future of artificial intelligence, ready or not.

What I saw happening was various computers using AI were given basic tasks and over the course of hours, days, weeks or years were able to produce results that would have taken humans thousands of years to replicate.

One such computer was designed to “read” all the information available on the internet and when queried or given a few words or sentences over a matter of seconds could write believable stories with complete sentences and paragraphs. Other robotic computers using AI were placed on a simulated soccer field and within hours developed tactics and teams competing with each other. One such AI computer was asked questions and did not search the internet for answers, but obtained answers from articles and stories that it had read previously. Oh there were and are possibly errors being made, but overall the creators of these AI computers see a future where every job, industry and people are changed by their use. They can translate thousands of documents into thousands of languages in such a short span of time that I could see the history of the world being rewritten by AI being in the wrong hands or in no human hands at all.

I wondered if in the book of Revelations, Chapter 13 where it talks about the first beast and second beast causing all mankind to receive the mark of the beast so that they cannot buy or sell without it or they die. Could those beasts in fact be computer systems using Artificial Intelligence?

Watch the video link above (it’s only 26 minutes) and what do you see in the future of civilization or mankind? – RTM
