Intelligent Systems And Their Societies Walter Fritz



Consequences of
Artificial Intelligent Systems
for the Human Society


Here you will read about the great advantages of having artificial intelligent systems, namely a greatly increased standard of living and also of great dangers that we have to avoid. The dangers are in the transition of our society from one based on work to one based on leisure and especially the danger of giving a robot its own survival as a main objective.

We have seen some of the effects that artificial ISs will have. Other effects will occur, which we cannot foresee today. Mankind has adapted to many changes and the IS will be another big change. This change is desirable however, because the advantages, by far, outweigh the disadvantages.
