Could artificial intelligence be the demise of mankind?

As our world grows more on advancing our technology, one could only ask when is it enough. Our generation is already in the process of seeing the transformation of mankind becoming more consumed by the technology that we think makes our lives better, and of course it does make life on earth easier when it comes to learning, working or just sharing your thoughts with millions at the click of a button.

But how much longer will we be in control of the things we create and develop? We are beginning to see more talks of advancements in artificial intelligence. For those of you who are unfamiliar with artificial intelligence, This is a form of technology that thinks for it self with very little to no human interaction. Today it is mostly used in computer software to filter out spam, collect data, track website traffic and much more. This form of artificial intelligence may not be the downfall of mankind, but it's when we expand the general concept into other machines like that of robots that may have more of a psychical interaction with humans, however not an interaction that we are in control of but instead one that could very well control us.

At some point it is assumed that most of the world's machines will be implemented with some form of artificial intelligence, from the banking and ATM systems to robots and perhaps even the satellites we have in orbit above the earth. It's scary to think that one day our entire life and the very existence of mankind could fully be dependent on how a computer might or might not run.

The advancement in technology in the past few years has been nothing short of staggering. Machines are increasingly taking over our daily lives, and things that must have seemed impossible to our parents are now a vivid reality. The day may not be far when we wake up in, say the year 2025, and find that magical and psychic powers that were once found only in science-fiction and fantasy movies have become a reality.

Mind-controlled machines: Imagine being able to control mechanical and electronic devices with just a thought. Electric signals from your brain will be conducted by electrodes to external devices, activating them and allowing them to perform actions, simply by your thoughts, without any touch.

Telepathy: People with electrodes implanted in them may be able to transmit their thoughts as electric signals to each other thereby allowing telepathic communication or silent talk between people. This technology could find massive appeal in a battlefield scene where soldiers will b…

Mysterious Encounters of Everyday Life

"I'd rather be a dysfunctional soul than a well adjusted robot."
- Thomas Moore

It seems these days that we want to understand, explain and find a use for everything we encounter. If we get stuck, we can find an answer on Google or some other search engine. Often we become so involved in the practical that we completely miss most of the little delights along our life path. This seems especially true of things which have no easy explanation.

At the end of the day, many people add up what they have accomplished since they got out of bed. I wonder how many people count the little delights which have passed their way during the day. If you become too busy with the practical, you will most likely miss the fanciful.
