Will an all-knowing artificial intelligence govern us in the future?

In the early days of AI, people often compared the growth of AI to the development of human intelligence. John McCarthy, a pioneer in AI research, once described an AI as a computer that can beat a human at any intellectual game. This idea was the basis for much of the early AI research, and it’s still with us today.

The idea of an AI that’s smarter than us is not new. It’s been part of science fiction for decades, and in the early days of AI, the Singularity was described as a time when a superintelligence (or artificial general intelligence) will emerge that’s as smart as humans. But most AI researchers today are working towards building computers that can think more like us, not smarter.

The idea of the Singularity as a time of great change is based on the idea of an intelligence explosion. In the early years of AI research, researchers believed that the rapid development of computer power would lead to a runaway intelligence explosion, a sudden increase in the complexity of the minds of computers. But in recent years, researchers have recognized that it’s possible for an AI to become smarter without increasing in complexity.

The idea of a “weak AI” is based on the idea that it’s possible for an AI to gain knowledge and make decisions in the same way that we do. Instead of building a computer that can beat us at intellectual games, we can create a computer that learns and improves its own intelligence through trial and error. This idea is still the focus of much AI research today, and it’s one of the ways that researchers are hoping to build an AI that can think like us.

AK: I stopped the monolog at this point as it finally drifted away from the main question. But it was pretty interesting! The last paragraph in the text suggests the desired answer: when “AI can think like us,” it can become an [all-knowing] part of our government.

So, the overall answer seems to be yes.
