KI – das große Missverständnis

0

In der heutigen Zeit, also in den letzten Monaten und Jahren, geht es mal wieder in den Medien vermehrt um das Thema Künstliche Intelligenz. Das ist jetzt bereits der dritte oder vierte Hype seit ca. 1960 als die Compiler aufkamen und damit die natürliche Sprache mehr oder weniger in der Programmierung von Rechenmaschinen eingeführt wurde. Ich muss sagen, es langweilt schon. Denn es gibt beim Begriff der Künstlichen Intelligenz ein gewisses Missverständnis: es gibt sie nicht.

Are we living in a dystopian future?

0

Can it be that history went wrong and we actually live in a dystopian world? Can it be that the evolution of society was once meant to empower people, to give them ultimate freedom and responsibility of their own life and even the life of other people? Didn’t we trust in human mind and reason? Wasn’t it once human logic to help each other. We were building up a humanistic future with endless resources and no economic restrictions at all. This would have been possible with nuclear energy and space travel. We did the first steps on the moon. We once build up a democratic world of educated people, each of them having power to destroy or create a lot of things. Trust and responsibility of each individual because of human reason, logic and love was the basis of our society. Altruism and charity was the main principle of our religions. The love for all human beings, even the weakest and corrupted, was a logical necessity for being able to work together as a team.

Then came the computers and the people forgot dreaming of space travel. In the beginning it was just toys for boys. They just preferred to play with this new toy instead of building radios or steam machines. Then it became a trend, a life concept, even a religion. The name of the priests of these new religion were the names of computer science professors at MIT, entrepreneurs at Silicon Valley, and famous physicists speculating about artificial intelligence and immortality. But the people became more and more separated and lonely. They lost contact to others. They even forgot basic social skills like helping each other and being friendly to foreigners.

Meanwhile the computers, controlling automated machines and millions of new robots, killed millions of jobs for workers and produced a new lower, fourth class of people: the out-selected proletarians. Many of us better educated people cried out: „Hurray! Welcome computer age!“, and started immediately – completely uncontrolled and unplanned – to change anything. Some fell in love with their computers and where whispering while touching their screens tenderly: „How nice, my new device!“. And the hard hearted people where even mercilessly stating: „It’s the proletarians own fault if they are not intelligent enough to become a computer operator.“ And all of us bought those new consumer products very excited (some idiots where even sleeping in front of the stores, when a new product was announced for the next day). Consumer products that actually made us more and more addicted, conditioned and weak.

We have lost a lot.

Vernichtet die Computer, nicht die Menschen

Was haben wir getan, als wir die ersten Programmrechner erschufen.. Wir bauten sie, um die Thermalisierung im Hohlraum der ersten Stufe zur Zuendung der Kernfusion zu berechnen. Und wie sich nach kurzer Zeit herausstellte, war es nicht diese furchtbare Waffe, die wir mit den Programmrechnern erschaffen wollten, die uns den Tod millionenfach brachte, sondern das Instrument zu ihrer Berechnung: der Programmrechner selbst. Die komplexeste Maschine, die je von Menschenhand erschaffen wurde, deren Komplexitaet uns schon in dem Moment, in dem wir sie erschufen, entglitt.
