Verner Vinge – Superhuman Intelligence will Kill Human Race
Throughout the centuries, the advancement of mankind combined with ancient mysticism such as those practiced by Nostradamus, help prophets to determine potential events of the future. In the modern era, they are known as futurists and although their predictions are based more on knowledge and vision rather than mysticism, they give us more insight into the shaping of the future than any centuries old prophet is able to.
One such futurist is the San Diego University Professor, Verner Vinge who in 1993 said: “We are on the edge of change comparable to the rise of human life Earth…In 30 years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after the human era will be ended.”
Vinge goes on to explain various ways of how man can develop “beings more intelligent,” and gives a thesis of how computers with an Artificial Intelligence human interface will wake up and consider mankind – their creators and masters – to be intellectually inferior. It´s an idea straight out of sci-fi, but Vinge is not the only person to suggest robots have the potential to destroy mankind.
In his book, The Age of Spiritual Machines, Ray Kurzweil comments that the technological advances of the human race will allow the average man on the street to boost his intellectual capacity in a computer product purchased from a shop. He writes:
“…your personal computer will be able to stimulate the brain power of a small village by 2030.”
Do robots become human or do human become robots?
Scientists have been developing robots to help around the home for several decades. They are getting closer and Bill Gates has been quoted as saying that artificial intelligent entities will be the fastest growing market by 2030. Stephen Hawkings, a leading scientific authority in the UK has said, that in order for mankind not to become servitude to AI, humans will need to be genetically engineered.
In 1993, Vinge also noted that biological science will find a way to improve natural human intelligence. In China, scientists have been developing human genomics for the past decade which could have the potential to improve our levels of intelligence. In the past year a breakthrough has been made which will see the idea accelerate in the next 15 years or so and will become a commercial product.
The shape of the future may appeal to some people like a living fantasy, but is there a potential for the reworking of the human brain and DNA to make us more docile to the world elite and thus easier to control or will we really become superhuman and make the world a better place to live? Either way, this idea sound very much like the theories of researchers who believe the Gods created humans in their own image and used alien DNA to make us more intelligently advanced.
