To dictators have predicted the help from robots and artificial intelligence


High technologies can promote emergence and support the despotic modes, the Swedish philosopher, the director of the Oxford Institute of future person Nick Bostrom has said in an interview to Lenta.ru. According to him, it can happen if advanced means on implementation of observation of the population, strong artificial intelligence or innovative developments in the sphere of robotics fall into hands of such mode. Bostrom has noted that if now the dictator for deduction of the power needs to get support of military and elite, then it is possible to present how in the future authoritative governors at the expense of these means will be able to operate the country as a part of small group — a maximum from ten people. He has noticed that the same technologies can be used and for the good. Bostrom has also expressed opinion that development of artificial superintelligence isn't unambiguous threat for people. The philosopher sees strong AI rather as the portal through which the mankind should pass on the way to progress. "The question consists not in, whether we should make up the mind to this step. Just we have to be convinced that when we approach this boundary, we will cross it so carefully and responsibly as soon as perhaps, we pass through this portal, but we won't break against a wall" — he has told. Bostrom has arrived to Russia on the international congress on cyber security organized by Sberbank which has passed on July 5-6 in Moscow. Besides him representatives of the large Russian and foreign IT-companies have made a speech at an action. The congress was visited by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. During the performance on an action the head of Sberbank German Gref has told about modern cyberthreats, and in particular about the attack to the computer systems of the Federal center of neurosurgery in Tyumen at the time of serious operation. According to him, an incident has occurred a few days ago during difficult operation on a brain of the 13-year-old patient. In the course of surgery medical devices have been switched-off because of breaking. The chief physician of the center Albert Sufianov has managed to finish operation, without leaning on electronic indicators. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel.
