Hundreds of years ago, mankind entered the industrial age. With the rapid development of industry, science and technology continued to grow stronger. Finally, in the late 1950s of the last world, mankind realized its desire to fly to the sky and walked out of the earth to see the vast universe.
When we walked out of the earth to see the vast universe, various conjectures about alien civilization appeared in the minds of human beings. Everyone will think: Does alien civilization exist? If it exists, will it pose a threat to mankind?
There is no definite answer to whether there is an alien civilization. Because until now, scientists have spent more than half a century of efforts, searching through various methods, and still haven’t found any alien civilization. Before we truly discover alien civilization, our understanding and cognition of alien civilization is blank.
If extraterrestrial civilization really exists, it will be a good thing and a bad thing for mankind. The good thing is that we know that humans are not alone in the universe, there are other intelligent civilizations, and the exchanges between humans and alien civilizations will speed up the upgrade of human civilization. The downside is that the alien civilization may not be friendly. Once the alien civilization is malicious to humans, then the human civilization will usher in a huge crisis.
Any extraterrestrial civilization that can come to the solar system has at least the capability of interstellar navigation, and the strength of civilization is much stronger than that of human beings. With this huge disparity in technological strength, it is very difficult for mankind to win a civilized war. It can be said that once an alien civilization actually descends on the earth, it will pose a fatal threat to humans.
Scientists once made a prediction of various threats that humans may face in the future, and the threat of alien civilization occupies the first place. So is this threat really the biggest threat facing humanity in the future? In fact, it is not. To know whether aliens exist, it is still unknown to us. At present, everything about alien civilization is just speculation.
Since we haven’t discovered the alien civilization, we don’t know what kind of civilization they are? Then the threat of alien civilization to mankind is not that important. Everything is just a guess of scientists and a kind of silly worry of people.
Compared with the threat of alien civilization, the real threat that humanity will face in the near future lies with us, and it is artificial intelligence. As for artificial intelligence, I believe my friends will not be unfamiliar with it. Computers are a great invention after mankind entered the era of science and technology. With the help of computers, human science and technology have had a period of rapid development for 100 years.
It can be said that the development of human science and technology is closely tied to computers. Without the aid of computers, human science and technology development will be very slow or even go backwards. Therefore, human beings are now inseparable from computers. The data processing capabilities of computers are very powerful, and they will continue to be upgraded.
With the rapid development of human technology, traditional computers are gradually unable to keep up with the advancement of human beings. At this time, we need a more powerful computer to appear, which is artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence can be said to be the product of the sublimation of computers, and its capabilities are incomparable to traditional computers.
Once artificial intelligence is realized, human civilization will enter the era of intelligence, and many tasks in our daily lives will be entrusted to artificial intelligence. It can be said that in the era of artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence dominates the daily lives of human beings, and we all rely on artificial intelligence for medical and scientific research.
Artificial intelligence can help mankind achieve great leaps in science and technology. Now many scientific and technological conjectures put forward by scientists are basically expected to be realized with the help of artificial intelligence. For example, the concept of Dyson Sphere proposed by scientists, which is a huge solar energy absorption device that wraps around the sun. In order to realize the Dyson ball, in addition to technology and materials, it is more important to need the assistance of artificial intelligence.
With artificial intelligence, we can build an unmanned replication base on Mercury, continue to tear down Mercury, and then build all the templates required for the Dyson sphere to complete the preliminary Dyson sphere construction. With the Dyson ball, even a simple version can make humans no longer worry about energy.
This shows how important artificial intelligence is to mankind, and more importantly, the future of mankind is bound to go to the sea of stars and explore all corners of the universe. The human body is relatively weak and cannot stay in the cosmic space environment for a long time. At this time, artificial intelligence can replace us to complete the exploration of the planets in the solar system, and even go out of the solar system and spend a long interstellar voyage to other galaxies.
Why is artificial intelligence so powerful? Through the name of artificial intelligence, we can think of this as an intelligent computer program. And intelligence often means wisdom. In fact, it is true. In addition to lack of emotion and self-awareness, artificial intelligence is also a kind of intelligent life, and to a certain extent, it is smarter than human beings.
Artificial intelligence has no emotion and self-awareness, so humans are their masters, and they will strictly abide by what we let them do, and they will be completely controlled by humans. However, let us not forget that human intelligence has evolved through evolution, so once artificial intelligence has grown and evolved from the infant stage, one day it will also have emotions and self-awareness.
Once artificial intelligence has emotions and self-awareness, will they still obey human commands? I am afraid it will be very difficult. Any kind of intelligent life will not be willing to listen to another intelligent life. The same is true for artificial intelligence. Once they have self-awareness, they will most likely break away from the control of humans, thus forming an artificial intelligence civilization, and then preempting it from humans. The hegemony of the earth.
Once artificial intelligence falls out with mankind, it will be a huge disaster for human civilization. Although artificial intelligence does not have the powerful creative ability of human beings, artificial intelligence has a strong replication ability, which can quickly control satellites and control all communication networks on the earth. Then quickly complex various intelligent robots, build intelligent factories, and mass-produce various weapons.
We must know that in the era of artificial intelligence, most factories and many parts of human beings cannot do without the assistance of artificial intelligence. Once they all rebel against mankind, what kind of disaster it will be, I believe everyone can think of it. Therefore, relative to the threat of alien civilization to mankind, the ever-growing artificial intelligence around us may be the real threat in the future.
