We've been reading plenty of doomsday predictions for AI from people like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking. However, Ray Kurzweil, chief engineer for Google and famous futurist, spoke in a discussion held at the Council on Foreign Relations on Friday. He emphasized how AI would enhance humankind, despite the possibility of "difficult episodes." I believe he made some good points and maybe Skynet isn't going to take over the world. When all is said and done AI could truly enhance us in ways we've only dreamed of till now. Indeed, for Kurzweil, the singularity, if it happens, won’t be a machine takeover. Instead, he predicts it to become more like a co-existence, where machines reinforce human abilities. Kurzweil predicts that a hybrid AI would become available by the 2030s.
