Abstract:Some of the concerns people have about A1 are: its misuses, effect on unemployment, and its potential for dehurnanising. Contrary to what most people believe and fear, GIcan lead to respect for the enormous power and complexity of the human mind. It is potentially very dangerous for users in the public domain to impute much more inferential power to computer systems, which look common-sensical, than they actually have. No matter how impressive A1 programs may be, we must be aware of their limitations and should not abrogate human responsibility to such programs.
