Did Google create a sentient artificial intelligence?
A software engineer on Google’s artificial intelligence development team, Blake Lemoine, is convinced that the company’s A.I. is now sentient and able to hold conversations at the level of a 7 or 8-year-old child. Google has dismissed Lemoine’s claims and suspended him, but as Glenn Beck noted on the radio program, this isn’t the first time a company insiderhas warned of the possible existence, and potential threat, of artificial general intelligence.
Glenn shared the details of Lemoine’s “very disturbing story” and broke down the pros (curing cancer and other deadly diseases) and cons (the complete inhalation of the human race) of the remarkable scientific advancements in artificial intelligence.
“Because of high tech, we’re going to see miracles in our lives,” Glenn said. “The tricky part is to not see horror shows in our lifetimes.”
