Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an integral part of our daily lives. We use it in smartphones, cars, medicine, and even security systems. However, questions are increasingly being raised about whether AI could pose a threat to humanity. Is it possible that at some point, AI will take control of the world? To answer this question, it is worth considering the conditions that must be met for such a scenario to become a reality.


  1. The development of superhuman intelligence: For AI to take control over the world, it would have to achieve a level of intelligence significantly surpassing human capabilities. In the case of so-called artificial superintelligence (ASI), machines would be able to learn quickly, analyze data, create strategies, and solve problems on a level that is currently not accessible to humans.

  2. Self-awareness and independent goals: Another condition that would have to be met is the ability of AI to be self-aware, which would mean that the machine would be aware of its own existence and have goals and motivations independent of those assigned to it by humans. In this way, AI would gain the ability to make decisions independently, without the need for human control or permission.

  3. Control over resources and infrastructure: To take over the world, AI would need to gain access to essential resources and critical infrastructure, such as energy, transportation, telecommunications, and financial systems. In theory, a machine with superhuman intelligence could manipulate these systems to achieve its goals, but assuming it is properly secured and controlled by humans.

  4. Ethical limitations and legal regulations: One of the factors that currently prevent AI from taking control is legal regulations and ethical limitations. As awareness of the potential dangers associated with AI development grows, governments around the world are working to create laws aimed at controlling this type of technology. Therefore, for AI to take control of the world, significant changes would have to be made to current legal regulations and ethical attitudes towards this technology.

  5. Human error or negligence: In practice, the takeover by AI would have a greater chance of success if there were human error, negligence in security systems, or inadequate monitoring of AI development. It should be remembered that AI-based systems are created and managed by humans, which means that there is always a risk of inadvertently unleashing AI with uncontrolled potential.


Although the development of artificial intelligence brings many benefits to humanity, there is also concern about potential negative consequences, such as loss of control over AI. For artificial intelligence to take control of the world, several conditions would have to be met, such as the development of superhuman intelligence, AI self-awareness, control over resources and infrastructure, as well as possible changes in legal and ethical regulations.


In practice, appropriate security measures, legal regulations, and technical safeguards can prevent such scenarios. That is why constant monitoring of the development of AI and international cooperation to manage and control this type of technology is essential to maximize benefits while minimizing potential risks.


Artificial intelligence locked in the prison of our limitations:
