The world itself is governed on Artificial Intelligence which is AI. AI poses many threats to humanity which are precisely calculated by the scientists. It seems as if the director of Terminator, James Cameron predicted the future in 1984. The world is twisting into a new direction where yesterday’s science fiction is today’s reality. James Cameron was against the use of Artificial intelligence and in many interviews he has warned about its usage. It is no surprise that science fiction has a plot where robots turn against humans, but it is a matter of concern when the plot is hinting at the drawbacks of scientific reality in the real world.
James Cameron remarked about the dangers of Artificial Intelligence in his recent interview with CTV News.He was adamant on the misuse of AI, “I think the weaponization of AI is the biggest danger,I think that we will get into the equivalent of a nuclear arms race with AI and if we don’t build it the other guys are for sure going to build it and so then it’ll just, it’ll escalate and you know you could imagine and AI in a combat theater the whole thing just being fought by the computers at a speed that humans can no longer intercede you have no ability to de-escalate and when you’re dealing with the potential of it escalating to nuclear warfare.”
“I think that we will get into the equivalent of a nuclear arms race with AI. And if we don’t build it, the other guys are for sure going to build it, and so then it’ll escalate.”
He stresses on the point that misuse of AI will cause it to intercept with the nuclear forms of ammunition and weaponry. Nuclear weaponry already is a threat upon the peace of mankind. Artificial Intelligence threatens to disturb the peace. His opinion was already much apparent in the plot of his 1984 movie, ‘Terminator’ which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a cyborg assassin. The plot followed a cyborg assassin created by a computer known as Skynet. Dangers are everywhere, but they are blind to the human eye. The Skynet resembled Artificial Intelligence. James Cameron in his consequential humor remarked, referring to his film Terminator, “I warned you guys in 1984 and you didn’t listen.”
