Which is more frightening: the "humanization of machines" or the "machinization of people"?


Text / Dragonslayer Chatter Endless Mirror Book Club

The concepts of "humanization of machines" and "machinization of man" are taken from the article "Three Intellectual Awakenings in Human Evolution" on China Social Science. This article reads.

In a way, the mind revolution since the 1950s is a continuation of the second intellectual awakening. The difference is that the object of this revolution is not the understanding and transformation of nature, but a breakthrough in the constraints of human biology itself, which may lead to an entirely new stage of human evolution. The third mind revolution is happening mainly in the field of artificial intelligence and brain science. Although the two areas intersect significantly, the paths are different. The path to artificial intelligence is the "humanization of the machine"; And the path of brain science is the "machinization of man". Whichever area is the first to make a breakthrough will lead to the emergence of a new species of human-machine unity that will disrupt our understanding of what it means to be human.

This article prompted this rant. "The best illustration of this is the Alpha dog, which has picked Li Shi Shi and Ke Jie off their horses. "The machinization of man", but we ordinary people don't quite feel it yet. With the level of knowledge of this science and technology illiterate, I can only think of the extent of "bio-chip", that is, through the implantation of various powerful "bio-chips", so that the human brain or even the human body can achieve systemic, structural and targeted enhancement in an instant. For example, with the implantation of a "biochip", an illiterate person can be transformed into a Ph.D. in history with a wide range of knowledge, or a mildly retarded person with an IQ of 70 can be transformed into a genius with an IQ of over 140.

We have already had a lot of thoughts and fantasies about the "humanization of machines", and we have also had a lot of warnings and precautions. The American film "Futurama", made in 1976, was a sensation in mainland China in the 1980s, and I'm sure it will ring a bell with those of you who are post-60s. Then came 1999's The Machine Butler, 2015's Robotech, and so on.

Regarding the "machinization of man", other than RoboCop, I can't think of any movies or TV shows at the moment. Checked Baidu and it says there's also Spider-Man 2, Tuxedo, or something, because I haven't seen it and don't dare to say anything.

Which is scarier, the "humanization of machines" or the "machinization of people"? The very fact that the question is posed may be controversial. Some people may question Benjamin and say that both the "humanization of machines" and the "machinization of man" will greatly benefit human life, so how can we talk about fear? Some people will enlighten Benjamin that the "humanization of machines" can completely free man from labor, and the "machinization of man" can completely eliminate the inherent inequality between man and man, so how can it be defined in terms of horror?

I have to admit that these questions and enlightenment are valid, but the present rant still stubbornly insists on its own views and still wants to use the word "horrible" for "machinization" and "machinization of man".

This drongo thought that science and technology is the most terrible Pandora's box when it has developed to the point of being able to change the biological form of man, and mankind is standing on the precipice of doom and gloom.

Isaac Asimov, the master of science fiction.

When Dolly the cloned sheep was introduced in 1996, humans were wary enough and cloning was extremely limited as a result. The resounding approach of robots has been met with equal vigilance by humans, such as with Asimov's three laws of robotics in 1950. But it has always been a wonderful hope that people would be transformed in an instant by means of technological outfitting. Because the condition is, after all, a change in our flesh, it is easier for us to accept psychologically. I do not know whether it is the "humanization of machines" or the "machinization of man", but in the end, they must all lead to the same path, to the other side of the devil's orgy of "artificial man". The day the "androids" are realized is the day the human race is destroyed.

In 1931, the British author Huxley wrote the novel "A Beautiful New World", which envisaged the existence of mankind 600 years later. The limitations of the time make Huxley's imagination in science and technology feel "out" when viewed through the lens of the present. But Huxley's picture of the prospect of "artificial man" is alarming enough.

Where do humans come from? As of now we are all speculation. Where is humanity headed? To this day we are delusional. Compared to the universe, humans are too small and too transient. Perhaps in nature's "persona", we cannot go to any "beautiful new world", our destiny is to live like human beings and pursue the happiness that human beings can enjoy.
