The Mercedes want people to be quiet about the new technology Car-to-X on the new E-Class, so they brought a researcher MIT to explain why you should not fear that robots will conquer the world and dominate humanity.

Car-to-X communication refers obviously communication between vehicles and between vehicles and transport infrastructure. The basic idea involves using sensors to create a safe and efficient experience driving. The concept is interesting as possible and, as I said above, will be part of the new E-Class. It's a huge step towards autonomous driving, and that's just what Mercedes aims. However, do not overlook the fact that people are not ready to see how machines communicate with each other.

To allay fears, Mercedes brought Professor Andrew McAfee to talk about artificial intelligence and the fact that it does not degenerate into a situation like the one seen in I, Robot. According to the Jalopnik were not blown a few words about machine learning and artificial intelligence, but a complex, about principles and unfounded fears. Also, MIT expert explained why people like Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates Elon Musk have the same fears regarding artificial intelligence. For example, chess was considered a supreme test of human intelligence, but in the last 20 years, computers have become invincible in this game. Obviously, the idea of ​​a super-intelligent machines, which is better than men at all, it's a little scary concept.

Although Elon Musk said at one point that artificial intelligences will awaken the demons, McAfee says that the idea that machines become self-aware and begin to communicate spontaneously and moved between them is very far from reality. Basically, we worry about this aspect it's like we worried that the planet Mars will become overpopulated.
