I recently wrote a blog entry on the topic of Artificial Intelligence after seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron with my family. I enjoyed the movie, but felt a little let down by how the AI villain was portrayed. However, it stimulated thinking about whether a real superintelligent AI would harm us, how it might actually go about subduing humanity, and whether we could do anything about it. In almost every portrayal of AI it springs into being as a fully integrated personality. This seems to fly in the face of what we know about intelligent systems and learning. My hypothesis is that more work (a new field?) at the interface of Developmental Neuroscience and AI could lead to enormous insights on brain development and advanced AI architectures that in the end could be more protective to humanity than Asimov’s 3 laws of robotics.
