我是打篮球的,拯救不了世界!

名字缩写与人工智能相同,令艾弗森烦恼。

当全世界都在为AI的无穷潜力兴奋不已的时候,有一个人却坦言已经厌倦了这项技术。

他就是征战NBA十四个赛季的著名后卫阿伦·艾弗森。他希望澄清自己不会站在区块链技术、内容审核技术或供应链管理等领域的前沿。

艾弗森在面向全美媒体的新闻发布会上表示:“我每天阅读的技术交易文章,都会提到人工智能。人人都说AI是答案,这是实话。我就是答案。”

艾弗森继续道:“但是,我担心人们指望我成为一些我自己都不敢问的问题的答案。”

这位篮球名宿几乎每天都被混淆为人工智能,这令他不知所措。最近,谷歌(Google)承诺,将为Gmail用户推出了一项AI驱动的新功能“智能回复”。

对此,艾弗森向记者团问道:“为什么人们不能自己写邮件?难道这不是我们称之为人的原因吗?”

艾弗森还列出了许多解决方案。在没有获得他的同意的情况下,他被变成了这些解决方案的“代言人”,而他自己却并不知情。谷歌是最近的例子,但“有罪方”不止谷歌一家公司。Facebook CEO马克·扎克伯格在国会作证时承诺,对于Facebook网络上日益增多的内容审核问题,AI将是长期的解决方案。

“我知道在篮球场上的防守,与开发一项策略减少全球最大社交媒体平台上的坏人之间,有一定的相似之处。但马克在让我承担这项至关重要的工作之前,并没有征求我的意见。如果他问过我,他就会知道我已经退役了。”

艾弗森说道:“为所有人着想,或许我们可以分清楚什么时候指的是人工智能,什么时候指的是我,阿伦·艾弗森。这样可以让我避免那些悲伤和愤怒的紧张时刻。在我力所能及的时候,我很愿意成为答案,但我知道有些时候,人们指的是另外一个AI。如果对大家有帮助的话,我也可以叫另外一个绰号‘Bubba Chuck’。”(财富中文网)

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — As the world froths from the mouth over the boundless potential of AI, one man is frankly tired of it.

Allen Iverson, former guard for fourteen seasons in the NBA, would like to clarify he will not be at the forefront of blockchain technology, content moderation techniques, or supply chain management.

“It is becoming impossible for me to read the daily technology trades without seeing a reference to AI. Everyone says AI is the answer, which is true. I am the Answer,” said Iverson in a press conference addressing national media.

“However,” Iverson continued, “I am worried I am being promised as the Answer to questions I haven’t dared to ask.”

The famous basketball player is at his wit’s end as he is conflated with Artificial Intelligence on a nearly daily basis. Most recently, Google has promised that AI will now power a new Smart Reply feature for Gmail users.

“Also, why can’t people write their own emails? Isn’t that what makes us human?” Iverson asked the press corps.

Iverson listed off a number of solutions he’d been unwittingly signed up for, without his consent. Though it is the most recent example, Google is not the only guilty party. In a testimony to Congress, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised AI would be the long-term solution to growing content moderation problems on the Facebook network.

“I understand there are some similarities between defense on a basketball court and developing a strategy to curtail the presence of bad actors on the world’s largest social media platform. But Mark did not ask before volunteering me for this very important job. If he did ask, he would know I’m retired.”

“Perhaps for everyone’s sake, we can clearly delineate when we are referring to Artificial Intelligence, or me, Allen Iverson. It would spare me from intense moments of grief and exasperation. I’d love to be the Answer when I can, and I understand there are times where it is the other AI,” said Iverson. “If it helps, I also go by Bubba Chuck.”
