Best Artificial Intellingence Quotes: Positive & Nagative Apocalypse On AI

As technology is advancing everyday, new ‘facet’ is evolving, its impacts on humanity and our society is now everyone’s business. There’s absolute no aspect of life that technology has not found its way, viz: education, law, agriculture, construction, military, just to mention a few and one of the big things is the evolution of Artificial intelligence and robotics.


Although artificial intelligence has diverse meaning, it’s the development of machines that mimic the behavior of humans, having the capacity to  interprete response and make productive decisions on its own.


There are advantages and disadvantages of AI and to grasp the positive and negative impacts it has, some of the best quotes on deep learning and AI Apocalypses are quoted here. Famous machine learning quotes from people like Stephen Hawking, Alan Turing etc.


“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.”

By Alan Turing


Alan Turing expressed his opinion on the dominance of AI in the future, the faith humans are going to have in it and how reliance on machines would supersede human right thinking.

Artificial intelligence is the extension of human intelligence. By Akinyande Ayomide


Akinyande is of the opinion that Machine intelligence (MI) is no intelligence to be given much value since it relies on human adjustment.


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


Angle is hoping for how well humans would be able to put the use of AI under control without having much negative values than expected

“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?” By Gray Scott


I think Scott and Colin Angle are on the same line on this


“It seems probable that once the machine thinking method has started, it would not take long to outstrip our feeble powers… They would be able to converse with each other to sharpen their wits. At some stage therefore, we should have to expect the machines to take control.”

By Alan Turing


Alan has always expressed fear in how much machine learning would outwit humans learning and beat humans in decision making.


Artificial intelligence is the next big weapon that’s capable of destroying human race if care is not taken. By Akinyande Ayomide

Sure, AI will find its war in military


“The study is to proceed on the basis of the conjecture that every aspect of learning or any other feature of intelligence can in principle be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it. An attempt will be made to find how to make machines use language, form abstractions and concepts, solve kinds of problems now reserved for humans, and improve themselves.” By John McCarthy

This is what everyone would love to see in the future and hopefully it can become reality


“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.” By Klaus Schwab


Will humans still be relevant when artificial intelligence becomes a common thing in the society, this is a question that its answer is not as important as the danger AI poses to our coexistence. By Akinyande Ayomide


“If the government regulates against 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.” By Peter Diamandis


Making laws about Artificial intelligence is not what can be taken with light hands.


“AI scientists tried to program computers to act like humans without first understanding what intelligence is and what it means to understand. They left out the most important part of building intelligent machines, the intelligence … before we attempt to build intelligent machines we have to first understand how the brain things, and there is nothing artificial about that.” By Geff Hawkins


Should we rather say that Artificial intelligence of machines is the duplicate of the intelligence of scientists that build them.


“Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So instead of artificial intelligence, I think we’ll augment our intelligence.” By Ginni Rometty


While I so much agree with Rometty, AI machine will enhance us, intact, it has been doing that before artificial intelligence came to limelight.



“We’ve been seeing specialized AI in every aspect of our lives, from medicine and transportation to how electricity is distributed, and it promises to create a vastly more productive and efficient economy … But it also has some downsides that we’re gonna have to figure out in terms of not eliminating jobs. It could increase inequality. It could suppress wages.” By Barack Obama


The former US president strongly believe that the negative impacts of AI should be limited but how much can we stop what we’ve created to be the number enemy of humankind in the future to come. It’ll not only take Jobs away but also pose serious threats to human survival.


“The key to artificial intelligence has always been the representation.” By jeff Hawkins


“I’m more frightened than interested by artificial intelligence – in fact, perhaps fright and interest are not far away from one another. Things can become real in your mind, you can be tricked, and you believe things you wouldn’t ordinarily. A world run by automatons doesn’t seem completely unrealistic anymore. It’s a bit chilling.” By Gemma Whelan


Gemma is not from from the truth, just like nuclear power, many are interested to have control over the world and AI would make some more powerful to run the world in automation.


“Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russian, but for all of humankind. It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.”  By Vladimir Putin

“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race … it would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.” By Stephen Hawking


There are fads as regards what artificial intelligence could achieve but the future generations would have much to say.


“I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I had to guess at what our biggest existential threat is, I’d probably say that. So we need to be very careful.” By Elon Musk


Humans have existed for so long, may be AI machines would be new species of humans



“Whenever I hear people saying AI is going to hurt people in the future I think, yeah, technology can generally always be used for good and bad and you need to be careful about how you build it … if you’re arguing against AI then you’re arguing against safer cars that aren’t going to have accidents, and you’re arguing against being able to better diagnose people when they’re sick.” By Mark Zuckerberg


The Facebook founder is very optimistic but forget to realize that an attack to machine intelligence can bring chaos to the world within a twinkle of an eye.


“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.” By Eliezer Yudkowsky


“You have to talk about ‘The Terminator’ if you’re talking about artificial intelligence. I actually think that that’s way off. I don’t think that an artificially intelligent system that has superhuman intelligence will be violent. I do think that it will disrupt our culture.” By Gray Scott


Many inventions of the past have already disrupted our cultures, such as internet.


“Most of human and animal learning is unsupervised learning. If intelligence was a cake, unsupervised learning would be the cake, supervised learning would be the icing on the cake, and reinforcement learning would be the cherry on the cake. We know how to make the icing and the cherry, but we don’t know how to make the cake. We need to solve the unsupervised learning problem before we can even think of getting to true AI.” By Yan Lecun



“Artificial intelligence would be the ultimate version of Google. The ultimate search engine that would understand everything on the web. It would understand exactly what you wanted and it would give you the right thing. We’re nowhere near doing that now. However, we can get incrementally closer to that, and that is basically what we’re working on.” By Larry Page


While this is achievable, I doubt its sustenance. As long as artificial intelligence can not supersede the minds that create it, so some webmasters would still trick the algorithm successfully.



You can use all the quantitative data you can get, but you still have to distrust it and use your own intelligence and judgment.” By Alvin Toffler

“If you had all of the world’s information directly attached to your brain, or an artificial brain that was smarter than your brain, you’d be better off.” By Sergey Brin


A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.” By Alan Perlis


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


“There is no reason and no way that a human mind can keep up with an artificial intelligence machine by 2035.” By Gray Scott


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


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



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


“The pace of progress in artificial intelligence (I’m not referring to narrow AI) is incredibly fast. Unless you have direct exposure to groups like Deepmind, you have no idea how fast—it is growing at a pace close to exponential. The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five-year timeframe. 10 years at most.” By Elon Musk


“Nobody phrases it this way, but I think that artificial intelligence is almost a humanities discipline. It’s really an attempt to understand human intelligence and human cognition.” By Sebastian Thrun


“The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.” By Jean Baudrillard


“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.” By Nick Bilton


“Is artificial intelligence less than our intelligence?” By Spike Jonze


“Forget artificial intelligence – in the brave new world of big data, it’s artificial idiocy we should be looking out for.” By Tom Chatfield


“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.” By James Barrat


“The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.” By Jean Baudrillard


“Before we work on artificial intelligence why don’t we do something about natural stupidity?” By Steve Polyak


“I’m increasingly inclined to think that there should be some regulatory oversight, maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish. I mean with artificial intelligence we’re summoning the demon.” By Elon Musk
