Have you ever wished for a  phone that automatically answer the ringing call by conveying the desired message without any prior command? Most of you definitely won't want a self-thinking machine that assists you on a daily basis. Though Artificial Intelligence technology integrates with most of the contemporary tech devices, innovators are still working day and night to explore its full potential. But some of the robotics leaders don't want that to happen and asking the UN to turn down these projects.

The recent online quarrel between Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg and Tesla owner Elon Musk over the self operating technology was point of attention. Mark was praising the advancement in AI applications while Elon Musk keep ringing the bell of danger by pointing the AI as future Killer robot.

AI Robots

However, the leading tech innovators have different opinions and future vision about the AI. Where some trying to make Artificial Intelligence a part of daily lifestyle others are considering it as a potential danger to humankind.

On 19, August the most salient conference of IJCAI( International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence) held In Melbourne .In conference 116 entrepreneurs and founders of robotics and Artificial intelligence combinedly gave surprising announcement to UN by asking the ban on the ‘Killer robots’. The tech founders from 26 countries wrote an open letter to the UN and asked to put severe restriction over the manufacturing of danger AI robots and machines. They also mentioned that the ability of self-thinking and negotiation could turn into mutiny against the humans( like once we saw in I Robot movie).

The robotics and AI experts added their name in the signatory which includes Elon Musk (Tesla, SpaceX, OpenAI), Mustafa Suleyman (Founder and Head at Google's DeepMind), Esben Østergaard( founder of Universal Robotics), Yoshua Bengio (founder of Element AI) as part of the appeal to UN.

The recent AI activity in Facebook’s research center supports the Tesla owner warning about AI, being a future harm to existing human race. Facebook had to shut down it's AI chatbot project after the bots started communicating in an unknown coded language. However, Mark Zuckerberg didn't take AI as any kind of harm and reported the incident as another snag in the research process. May be diverting from a communicating language is not a big issue as compared to the end of the world but what's wrong in being cautious?.

Sending an official letter to the UN and raising the issue at the global level is not an issue to be taken lightly. Too much dependency on machines may increase our exposure to the risk of letting the AI take control on our surroundings. Tech giants such as Google, Facebook and Microsoft are consistently investing millions in the AI projects to explore the other dimension of the technology.
