Artificial Intelligence: Machines Vs Humans

Writers and Bloggers: How Will Artificial Intelligence Affect Our Language?

Linguistics is defined as ‘the scientific study of human language’ and is not an exact science. Much of it is logical; however, some wording and grammar cannot be easily explained. As a blogger, for example, we must discern when it would be better to use polite or casual phrasing.

What is Artificial Intelligence? Wikipedia defines it, in part, as “intelligence exhibited by machines, rather than humans or other animals.” Many bloggers assume they are writing their own language correctly, but correctly for whom? The fact is, it is almost impossible to do so. It is very clear that AI will be in every aspect of our lives in some way. Our language would inevitably be included.

Neural Machine Translation

If you are not familiar with Neural Machine Translation, follow this link. The purpose of neural machine translation is to build a single neural network that can be jointly tuned to maximize the translation performance. If technology continues its vast, continually upgraded data, it could render current data or language obsolete. As scientists continue working to create vast amounts of “normal” language, we will have to be aware of what is right and what is wrong in a piece, or if it would work in a spoken sentence.

When AI reaches more of a state of grammar correctness, we may have to become more precise in the quality of our linguistics. There is an issue with translating Chinese, which creates copyrighting headaches, but it can be done. We will draw on our own resources to write our own languages.

AI is reportedly developed enough to create its own language. For example, Facebook abandoned an AI experiment “because the chat boxes they created developed their own language.” Facebook states: “Facebook’s artificial intelligence scientists reportedly dismayed when the bots they created began conversing in their own private language.”

Will We Have to Relearn Our Own Language?

Humans have already created a way for learning linguistics. Some languages are generated due to a combination of words that would be considered best for communicating your ideals. In the same way, technology will select its choices of ‘terms’ and ‘exclamations’ and ‘objectives.’

InfoWorld Lists Five AI languages:

  • Python
  • Java
  • Lisp
  • Prolog
  • C++

Those in The Know Feel A Need To Warn

Elon Musk, who has previously warned that the development of autonomous weaponry could lead to an “AI arms race,” told the National Governors Association on July 15, 2017, that the risks posed by artificial intelligence are so great that it needs to be proactively regulated before it is too late. “Once there is awareness,” Musk said, “people will be extremely afraid, as they should be.”

Scientists and tech luminaries, including Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Steve Wozniak, have warned that AI could lead to tragic, unforeseen consequences. Eminent physicist Stephen Hawking cautioned in 2014 that AI could mean the end of the human race. “It would take off on its own and re-design itself at an ever-increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn't compete, and would be superseded,” he told Forbes.

Artificial Intelligence could save humans a vast amount of production time and solve many problems; however, it could cause many foreseen problems, also. Some of these problems will not be able to be fixed which has caused concern for many. For now, it is clear that we are not ready for this new technology; not yet, anyhow.
