Research by the Oxford University Institute for the Future of Humanity, in which the views of experts for machine learning have been presented, has established that „stronger” AI, by 2031, could have a significant effect on the roles of professional truck drivers, retail workers, translators, journalists, tourist guides, librarians, all of which could go into oblivion with this tempo of AI development. However, we believe that many decades will pass before the „stronger” AI becomes advanced enough to replace humans in much more complex tasks. When (and if) that happens, it will certainly open various ethical questions for which there are no answers in present time.
USA have recently adopted Executive Regulation 13859 which contains 10 principles regarding AI, and which has been passed to chiefs of executive departments and federal agencies by Memorandum. The goal is to reduce the barriers which serve the development of AI and to encourage innovations and development in general.
However, taking into account the dangers of this phenomenon, only development in the field of AI is encouraged, which refers to the collection and processing of data from various sources of information and the performance of specific domain tasks (weak AI). Stronger AI, which implies mimicking human cognitive abilities as well as establishing state of consciousness that can perfect itself even over human limits is excluded by this Memorandum.
These principles should guide the agencies when deciding on applications which refer to design, development, distribution and work of the AI.
The principles are:
If our country plans on being a leader in IT industry, it should certainly and urgently head that way both regulatory and in planned fashion, just like it needs promptly to bring and adopt the strategy for development of blockchain technology, considering that Germany for example adopted such a strategy by the end of last year.
