"I'd rather be a man
Instead of a machine
Flesh and blood life and death
It's a mystery
Nothing to be programmed
Nothing is for sure
And least there's a reason
A reason for my life
I want be man
You want be me
I want to live in your body"
and so now we have this...
When China's Top Artificial Intelligence Guru Lee Kai-Fu has discussed how AI is changing the shape of the world, people listen. And he assumes big changes in a short time.
People pay attention to what Dr. Lee Kai-Fu says. In China, fifty million people follow him on social media, which means that he has more fans than the Revolutionary guy and Mars Visionary Elon Musk.
Dr. Kai-Fu believes that "AI is giving new look to the world as we know". But beyond the flickering turn of the phrase, the 57-year-old has heavyweight credentials.
He was the founding president of Google China from 2005 to 2009. And in his early times, he had worked at Microsoft and Apple as a Vice President.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella calls Dr. Lee’s book on the New York Times bestseller list- AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and New World.
I think we are diverted from the Question. Let's back to our main topic
The point of concern is that Dr. Lee is not involved in human-robot marriages because when small people can consider robots as human beings, most of us - even children - know the difference between a toy or a pet and a human relationship.
Giving them (the elderly) primitive, fake and inanimate non-emotional robots to connect is a cruel thing that we should not do in the form of human beings.
He acknowledged that AI can be used for worldly activities, such as reminding us to take our medicine or to monitor safety. But for this AI specialist, the human warmth part is paramount.
Dr. Lee Says "My mother was in dementia, and when she had lived for the past 15 years, it was her child who probably had spent 5 to 10 hours a day with her, which kept her dementia from worsening." From this, you can say that a robot can never do this.
Dr. Lee predicts that AI will make countless jobs in a short time. He sees 40 percent - which is thousands of millions of jobs - disappearing in only 15 years. Ya, there are disadvantages of AI but there are more advantages that will help the world towards the next step of the future revolution...
