AI is (soon) stronger than you

According to a study by the Oxford and Yale universities, it may well be that within 45 years (2062) artificial intelligences are sufficiently advanced to perform any task better than a human.

Enjoy it as long as you are still able to beat the artificial intelligences (AI) of your favorite video games because the situation could change in not so long. This is in any case what emerges from a study conducted jointly by the universities of Oxford and Yale, published Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

As part of their research, the authors of the study interviewed no fewer than 350 AI specialists and machine learning experts. This is to determine how “advances in artificial intelligence will transform modern life by reshaping the transportation, health, science, finance and defense sectors.” In this way, they hope to help “anticipate more effectively these advances” in order to “adapt public policies”.

Artificial Intelligence Power

The result ? A fairly detailed timetable for the next steps of the AI. According to researchers, artificial intelligence algorithms will surpass humans in many areas over the next 10 years. By 2024, they will be better translators, and by 2026 they will be able to write high school dissertations. Independent trucks would arrive only in 2027 (which seems a little late), while it was not until 2031 that RNs were invited to the retail trade (although robots are already installed in some stores). By 2049, they could write complete books, and even work as surgeons by 2053.

The study also estimates that 50% of RNs will perform better than humans in all areas by 45 years, and that all jobs will be automated within 120 years.

Although anticipation scenarios of this kind are always to be taken with tweezers, this study echoes the statements of a number of Tech personalities. Examples include Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web and HTML, Elon Musk, boss of Tesla and SpaceX, and Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, who believe that a universal in order to remedy the increase in unemployment induced by automated machines.
