Quotes on Artificial Intelligence by Experts 

The article lists some of the latest and most interesting quotes on artificial intelligence from researchers and experts.

The field of artificial intelligence is thriving more than ever as technological advances continue to emerge. Researchers and experts are striving harder than ever before to make the unprecedented happen. Throughout the process, experts constantly keep vocalizing their opinions on AI in various contexts. Here are some of the latest and most interesting quotes on artificial intelligence.

“We have seen AI providing conversation and comfort to the lonely; we have also seen AI engaging in racial discrimination. Yet the biggest harm that AI is likely to do to individuals in the short term is job displacement, as the amount of work we can automate with AI is vastly larger than before. As leaders, it is incumbent on all of us to make sure we are building a world in which every individual has an opportunity to thrive.”

Andrew Ng, American computer scientist, and technology entrepreneur

“The playing field is poised to become a lot more competitive, and businesses that don’t deploy AI and data to help them innovate in everything they do will be at a disadvantage.” 

Paul Daugherty, chief technology and innovation officer, Accenture

“Fairness is a big issue. Human behavior is already discriminatory in many respects. The data we’ve accumulated is discriminatory. How can we use technology and AI to reduce discrimination and increase fairness? There are interesting works around adversarial neural networks and different technologies that we can use to bias toward fairness rather than perpetuate the discrimination. I think we’re in an era where responsibility is something you need to design and think about as we’re putting these new systems out there, so we don’t have these adverse outcomes.”

Paul Daugherty, chief technology and innovation officer, Accenture

“Some people worry that artificial intelligence will make us feel inferior, but then, anybody in his right mind should have an inferiority complex every time he looks at a flower.”

Alan Kay, American computer scientist 

“I visualize a time when we will be to robots what dogs are to humans, and I’m rooting for the machines.”

Claude Shannon, American mathematician, electrical engineer, and cryptographer

“It’s going to be interesting to see how society deals with artificial intelligence, but it will definitely be cool.”

Colin Angle, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and co-founder of iRobot

“Artificial intelligence is growing up fast, as are robots whose facial expressions can elicit empathy and make your mirror neurons quiver.”

Diane Ackerman, American essayist and author

“A lot of times, the failings are not in AI. They’re human failings, and we’re not willing to address the fact that there isn’t a lot of diversity in the teams building the systems in the first place. And somewhat innocently, they aren’t as thoughtful about balancing training sets to get the thing to work correctly. But then teams let that occur again and again. And you realize, if you’re not thinking about the human problem, then AI isn’t going to solve it for you.” 

Vivienne Ming, executive chair and co-founder of Socos Labs

“Change is hard within organizations. It’s unclear to me whether or not AI, just as a technology, is going to radically change all of the challenges that we have within an organization. Things like getting people to change, change their practices and processes, and using this set of technologies. There is a huge gap in terms of what we can do now with AI. There’s improved lead generation that machine learning can do better than humans.”

Michael Chiu, partner, McKinsey Global Institute (MGI)

“To be human is to be ‘a’ human, a specific person with a life history and idiosyncrasy and point of view; artificial intelligence suggest that the line between intelligent machines and people blurs most when a puree is made of that identity.”

Brian Christian, American non-fiction author, poet, programmer, and researcher.

“I believe that at the end of the century, the use of words and general educated opinion will have altered so much that one will be able to speak of machines thinking without expecting to be contradicted.”

Alan Turing, English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist.

“AI is a complex field, and I am the first to say that we computer scientists have not progressed as far as many people believe. For instance, we currently have no credible research path to any kind of conscious AI algorithm, and there are no robots that are truly autonomous or able to make their own decisions — so don’t worry about walking terminators.” 

Richard Socher, former chief scientist, Salesforce

“There’s a real danger of systematizing the discrimination we have in society [through AI technologies]. What I think we need to do — as we’re moving into this world full of invisible algorithms everywhere — is that we have to be very explicit, or have a disclaimer, about what our error rates are like.”

Timnit Gebru, research scientist, Google AI

“The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim.”

Edsger W. Dijkstra, Dutch computer scientist, programmer, software engineer, systems scientist, and science essayist.

“As data and science become more accessible and more the production of software and AI, human creativity is becoming a more valuable commodity.”

Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr., American Banker.

“If an AI possessed any one of these skills—social abilities, technological development, economic ability—at a superhuman level, it is quite likely that it would quickly come to dominate our world in one way or another. And as we’ve seen, if it ever developed these abilities to the human level, then it would likely soon develop them to a superhuman level. So we can assume that if even one of these skills gets programmed into a computer, then our world will come to be dominated by AIs or AI-empowered humans.”

Stuart Armstrong, James Martin Research Fellow at the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University.

“Artificial intelligence will reach human levels by around 2029. Follow that out further to, say, 2045, and we will have multiplied the intelligence – the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization – a billion-fold.”

Ray Kurzweil, American computer scientist, author, inventor, and futurist.

“Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make.” 

Nick Bostrom, Swedish-born philosopher at the University of Oxford 

“People worry that computers will get too smart and take over the world, but the real problem is that they’re too stupid, and they’ve already taken over the world.”

Pedro Domingos, Professor Emeritus of computer science and engineering at the University of Washington.

“Maybe the only significant difference between a really smart simulation and a human being was the noise they made when you punched them.”

– Terry Pratchett, English humorist, satirist, and author of fantasy novels. 

“As more and more artificial intelligence is entering into the world, more and more emotional intelligence must enter into leadership.”

– Amit Ray, Indian author, and pioneer in proposing compassionate artificial intelligence.

“A powerful AI system tasked with ensuring your safety might imprison you at home. If you asked for happiness, it might hook you up to a life support and ceaselessly stimulate your brain’s pleasure centers. If you don’t provide the AI with a very big library of preferred behaviors or an ironclad means for it to deduce what behavior you prefer, you’ll be stuck with whatever it comes up with. And since it’s a highly complex system, you may never understand it well enough to make sure you’ve got it right.”

– James Barrat, author of Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era.

“If we do it right, we might be able to evolve a form of work that taps into our uniquely human capabilities and restores our humanity. The ultimate paradox is that this technology may become a powerful catalyst that we need to reclaim our humanity.”

– John Hagel, a silicon valley based consultant and author 

“By far, the greatest danger of Artificial Intelligence is that people conclude too early that they understand it.”

– Eliezer Yudkowsky, American decision theory, and artificial intelligence (AI) researcher and writer

“The real question is, when will we draft an artificial intelligence bill of rights? What will that consist of? And who will get to decide that?”

– Gray Scott, futurist, techno-philosopher, and expert in the field of emerging technology.

“If the government regulates against the use of drones or stem cells or artificial intelligence, all that means is that the work and the research leave the borders of that country and go someplace else.”

– Peter Diamandis, Greek-American engineer, physician, and entrepreneur

“If people trust artificial intelligence (AI) to drive a car, people will most likely trust AI to do your job.” 

– Dave Waters, professor at the University of Oxford

“Anything that could give rise to smarter-than-human intelligence—in the form of Artificial Intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, or neuroscience-based human intelligence enhancement – wins hands down beyond contest as doing the most to change the world. Nothing else is even in the same league.”

– Eliezer Yudkowsky, American decision theory, and artificial intelligence (AI) researcher and writer 

“Why give a robot an order to obey orders—why aren’t the original orders enough? Why command a robot not to do harm—wouldn’t it be easier never to command it to do harm in the first place?”

– Steven Pinker, Canadian-American cognitive psychologist, psycholinguist, popular science author, and public intellectual. 

“The upheavals [of artificial intelligence] can escalate quickly and become scarier and even cataclysmic. Imagine how a medical robot, originally programmed to rid cancer, could conclude that the best way to obliterate cancer is to exterminate humans who are genetically prone to the disease.”

– Nick Bilton, technology, business, and culture contributor at CNBC 

“I don’t want to really scare you, but it was alarming how many people I talked to who are highly placed people in AI who have retreats that are sort of ‘bug out’ houses, to which they could flee if it all hits the fan.”

– James Barrat, author of Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era.

“We must address, individually and collectively, moral and ethical issues raised by cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence and biotechnology, which will enable significant life extension, designer babies, and memory extraction.”

– Klaus Schwab, German engineer, economist, and founder of the World Economic Forum
