The famous “Terminator” quote “I’ll be back” could have a completely different meaning now.
Speaking at an event titled “A Night Out With Arnold Schwarzenegger” in Los Angeles this week, the 75-year-old star claimed that the world of artificial intelligence predicted in the ‘Terminator’ movies is “a reality become”.
“Today everyone is afraid of where this is going to go,” Schwarzenegger said of the state of AI in 2023. per person. “And in this film, in ‘Terminator,’ we talk about the machines becoming self-aware and taking control.”
The actor also praised series director James Cameron for his “extraordinary” script, noting that the film’s 1984 premiere “only scratched the surface” of the AI.
“Now it’s become a reality over the decades,” the actor continued. “So it’s no longer fantasy or futuristic in any way. It’s here today. And that is the extraordinary writing of Jim Cameron.”
The punch Science fiction film “Terminator” chronicled Schwarzenegger playing the role of a cyborg sent from the future and sent on a mission to kill Sarah Connor, played by 66-year-old actress Linda Hamilton.
The classic film has since continued in many different sequels, with the most recent, Terminator: Dark Fate, premiering in 2019.
During the event, Schwarzenegger also joked that he “wishes” he could “get the credit” for the film.
“He’s just such an extraordinary writer and he’s such an incredible director, it’s again one of those things I wish I could take credit for on this film,” he said.
“I have nothing but praise for the character I played and the way I played him. But I mean he created this character. He wrote it so well, he wrote the movie so well, and that’s why, you know, he’s the number one director in the world.”
Schwarzenegger isn’t the only person to have raised concerns about the future of artificial intelligence lately.
In recent months, others have also spoken out about the potential dangers of artificial intelligence, including Twitter owner Elon Musk, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and Shark Tank host Mark Cuban.
In May, Musk even mentioned the “Terminator” when discussing the new technology at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit.
“The probability of it becoming the Terminator is non-zero,” said the SpaceX founder. “The probability of wiping out humanity is small, but it is not zero. We want that probability to be as close to zero as possible.”
Whoopi Goldberg also commented in an episode of “The view‘ while discussing her distrust of Amazon’s computer technology ‘personal assistant’ Alexa.
“You know she’s listening, I don’t want her in the house,” Goldberg claimed, as her co-host, Alyssa Farah Griffin, agreed. “I don’t want anything smart enough to lock me out of my house. I don’t want anything that doesn’t enable me to drive my car. If you watch science fiction, it’s right there. They tell you.”
However, there are reports of AI making strides in the medical field, with UK doctors and scientists making major strides in rapid cancer detection in May.
Other researchers also made a breakthrough in the early detection of pancreatic cancer.
