Glenn: Robots Are the New Space Race – Here’s Why

Earlier this month, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that the leader when it comes to artificial intelligence will also “become the ruler of the world.”
Putin predicted that wars would eventually be fought by AI proxy, saying, “when one party’s drones are destroyed by drones of another, it will have no other choice but to surrender,” according to the Associated Press.
Glenn talked about the future of AI and why America needs to stay ahead in robot research on radio Tuesday. He compared Putin’s word of warning to President John F. Kennedy’s famous speech about why the U.S. sent a man to the moon.
“We choose to go to the moon,” Kennedy said on Sept. 12, 1962. “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard …”
In 2017, countries including the U.S., Russia and China are racing ahead in a different sphere: AI that will completely disrupt how our world works.
“The race now is on,” Glenn said. “This is what the world is racing to create: super intelligence that learns on its own, thinks in a completely alien way and has no human morality.”
