Artificial intelligence, AI is the effort to create a computer capable of Intelligent behaviours.
It is a broad term used to refer to everything from Siri to IBM’s Watson to powerful technologies we are yet to invent.
It is believed that we don’t have a General AI yet but Narrow Artificial Intelligence, which determines what we see in a Google search or our Facebook news feed.
It composes music and writes articles at a glance. It read as if a human being wrote them.
They play game strategy. They are being developed to improve drone targeting and detect missiles.
One would ask, ” Is it possible to make a computer as smart as a person?
The answer may be yes. Though the current Artificial Intelligence, AI is not that smart.
But what of Deep Learning machines? It can do some astonishing things, like beating games, we thought humans might never win.
Invent compelling and realistic photographs, and solve open problems in molecular biology.
Deep Learn is also a self-driving car, though still in a near-perfect condition despite the billions that have been invested into making it a reality.
Is Artificial Intelligence, a threat to human Existence? The answer is yes because it can act unpredictably as the system might have bugs or intended behaviour or the behaviours humans don’t understand.
Stephen Hawking said ” The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.
Elon Musk claims also follows the same direction that “AI is humanity’s biggest existential threat . ”
These worries were coming out of an evidence-based study that says that the advanced system of Artificial Intelligence, AI if deployed carelessly, could permanently cut off human civilization from a good future.
This is true?
Yes of course, because the idea that AI can become a danger is rooted in the fact that AI system pursue their goals, whether or not those goals are what we intended.
AI contributes to digital people with a wild ride. It blindingly fast growth every facet of human endeavours by producing output beyond what humans could meaning track making the world quickly approaching the limit of what is possible.
Is AI helpful to both humans and non-humans in daily life?
Yes, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can automate tasks, and improve efficiency and productivity in various industries. Data Analysis and Insights:
AI algorithms can analyze large data quickly, providing valuable insights for decision-making like detecting diseases, and wildfire to manufacturing security gadgets.
While in non-humans, AI has helped Animals over time using algorithms to study their movement patterns, which can provide important details about their behaviour, habitat use and needs of various populations and decide how to protect them.
Despite the enormous advantages of deploying Artificial Intelligence, the esses are a necessary check, because the world’s explosive growth may lead to total collapse.
That global catastrophe could cut down to a stage of affecting our existence may come from AI.
Human ingenuity in deep learning machines may prolong or shorten our lifespan.
Our forefathers worshipped the moon a few centuries back, but now we work on the moon.
The world must rise to support the call for research agenda for A. I governance that will ensure that advanced deep learning models don’t pursue dangerous goals.
