We have seen AI application everywhere, but the ultimate goal is general AI, a self-teaching system that can outperform humans across a wide range of disciplines. Some scientists believe it is centuries away; some talk about 30 years.

“AIs will colonize and transform the entire cosmos,” says Juergen Schmidhuber, a pioneering computer scientist based at the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Switzerland, “and they will make it intelligent.”

But what about us? Bill Gates and Elon Musk, have warned about AIs either destroying the planet in a frenzied pursuit of their own goals or doing away with humans by accident—or not by accident. A recent article published on Smithsonian Magazine draw some scenarios as to how our society will look like when AI will pull even with human intelligence.

The article suggested five scenarios for the year 2065, ten years after general AI arrives, assumingly: Superhuman Rights, Ultramodern Romance, Live Long & Prosper, Resistance Is Costly, and “Bigger” Brother.

AI World Society (AIWS) is an initiative launched by Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation, striving to minimize the harm and threats to humans caused by artificial intelligence, and using all the benefits to reform and renovate the social political system in each country and the world towards honesty, integrity, compassion, responsibility and justice.
