In April, Eric Schmidt, the former Google CEO, high profile Democrat and Hillary Clinton crony argued that the future consists of submitting ourselves and our society over to artificial intelligence because the “human intuition is often wrong.”
“Humans are not as mathematically precise as we wish that we wish that we are, and indeed human intuition is often wrong,” Scmidt said while discussing his new book about artificial intelligence. “Eventually, there will be knowledge systems that will govern society which will be perfectly rational. And because they are so rational, they will not be understandable by the average human because they can’t explain themselves.”
AI will eventually govern health, contends the software engineer known for being the CEO of Google from 2001 to 2011, executive chairman of Google from 2011 to 2015, executive chairman of Alphabet Inc. from 2015 to 2017, and Technical Advisor at Alphabet from 2017 to 2020.
“Either one of two things happens in that case, either you have a revolution, in the form of guns against the man, or you have a new religion and we speculate that one of those two will occur as a result of these extremely large gains in perception from non-aninate intelligence. The thought experiment is that instead of Dr. Fauci we have an all-knowing computer which basically pronounces important things for health.”
