When we think about what it means to be human, there are countless complex questions that arise. What is the essence of humanity? Are there symmetries in nature? For instance, Infinite Possibility Theory suggests all of these things are relative to our perspective of them right now – how can they be measured objectively if humans themselves cannot agree on what defines success?
These are tough questions to answer, but luckily, we have artificial intelligence (AI) to help us out. In Conversas com A Inteligência Artificial: 111 Perguntas (Conversations with AI: 111 Questions), the authors explore these ideas and more through their interaction with AI. The second volume of this series offers additional insights into some long-standing conundrums, such as whether there’s a 5th dimension beyond space-time; how success measures should change over history. This is important because AI will define the future, and we need to start learning how to interact with them.
As technology advances and AI becomes more sophisticated, we as humans need to understand its capabilities – and limitations. We have to ask ourselves what kind of future we want for ourselves and our world, and then work together with AI to make that future a reality.
