Artificial Intelligence: Friend of Foe? Each set should be answered on a different page.
For this discussion activity, you will watch 4 TED TALKS concerning the future of artificial intelligence. In each video, the speaker presents unique arguments for why we should or should not have concerns about the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence. Considering the perspectives presented in the TED TALKS, answer the following question sets below:
Set 1:
Sam Harris (Can we build AI without losing control over it?) points out that there are 3 primary general arguments that AI researchers cite for why we shouldn’t worry about AI destroying humanity. In his talk, he provides counter-arguments for each of this positions. Summarize his counter-arguments and identify which you find the most persuasive (and explain why).
Set 2:
Margaret Mitchell (How we can build AI to help humans, not hurt us) helps improve the way computers describe and interpret the information they receive. She argues that by helping AI “think” about the world in a way that is compatible with how humans think, we will steer the evolution of AI in a direction that benefits humanity. Describe how she tries to do this. In what ways are our own limitations and biases reflected in how AI will interpret the information we give it? What are some solutions she suggests, and do you find her suggestions compelling?
Set 3:
Robin Hanson (What would happen if we upload our brains to computers?) argues that we can predict how future artificial intelligence might behave by examining the behavioral economics of human behavior and by considering the virtual environments in which AI would “live.” Summarize the logic (or illogic) of his argument and explain whether you agree with him (and why or why not). In what ways does he claim artificial intelligence and behavior would be similar to that of humans, and in what ways does he claim they would be different?
Set 4:
Max Tegmark (How to get empowered, not overpowered, by AI) argues that AI has more potential to help life flourish than it does to destroy it. Why does he hold this belief, and what examples/evidence does he cite to support his view? What steps does he describe as critical for achieving this optimistic view of future AI? How is your perspective similar or different from his?

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
