 Academician Pu Mu Ming asked: does subversive technology bring ethical problems?


Will disruptive technologies in brain science bring ethical problems? Will human beings be useless in the AI era? On October 30, Pu Mu Ming, a famous international neurobiologist and academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, raised the above-mentioned problems to three other top scientists in brain science and AI field at the forum of scientific frontier and disruptive technology held in Shanghai.

Edward mosol, 2014 Nobel Laureate in physiology or medicine, thinks such concerns may be premature. A few years ago, he said, similar questions had been asked, our technology may have some ethical implications, and I still think its far from being able to actually manipulate peoples minds, especially by stimulating brain cells.

Edward mosol also mentioned that in fact, in the fields of psychology and psychiatry, decades or even more ago, some methods were used to change peoples minds. Now, neuroscientists use some technologies to change peoples brain activity. We just improve some problems, solve and treat some problems.

He repeatedly stressed that the discovery of scientists is still a long way from practical application.

The 2014 Nobel Prize winner in physiology or medicine, may Brett mosol, agreed with the above view, and added that in the field of science, there are always ethical problems. Scientists use electrodes or some methods to stimulate certain brain cells, and in these processes, they will intervene in the brain. But in her view, it will be up to humanity to decide whether to use these technologies in the future.

She also raised another ethical issue: if we dont develop this science, more people, such as children, will lose their lives. For example, if there is no self driving, more people will lose their lives because of traffic accidents. Jin Chuwu Xiong, winner of the 2016 Kyoto advanced technology award, is optimistic about whether AI can replace human beings. He mentioned a possible future. If there are only robots to work in this world, and we humans dont have jobs, and robots are produced, but no one has money to buy them, the world will not be able to work. Then we need to create some new social systems to adapt to the era of machine replacement. He believes that machines have replaced some peoples jobs, but these people will not always be unemployed, they will always find new jobs. Source: surging news editor: Wang Fengzhi_ NT2541
