The Rise Of Artificial Intelligence
New technologies are growing at a rapid rate today and with them their application. But there are those old inventions, the unfulfilled dreams of many scientists, who rely on the possibility that this explosive growth in innovation will open the door to something that would truly change everyday life. This is, of course, artificial intelligence.
Science can and does try to answer the question of the possibility of creating an artificial mind, a machine that works and reacts as a human, that is, an intellectual being. The ethics of this endeavor has been debated ever since the idea came about.
The possibilities, as we have stated, are endless. And the controversy is driven by several segments. First and foremost, whether artificial intelligence is a threat to humanity and second, how the development will affect the current situation and specifically the jobs we have today.
Many global entrepreneurs and IT professionals, renowned scientists have touched on this topic, with differing opinions. So Elon Musk, one of the most successful entrepreneurs and Stephen Hawking, a world-renowned astrophysicist, agrees that if left unchecked, the development of VI could have catastrophic consequences for humanity, to the limits we see on sci-fi movies.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) — A future that has already arrived
Of course, applications have already been found that man could not do on his own, and help humanity such as detecting the early stages of cancer and more.
AI has already found its application in one major industry — automotive. Autonomous cars, the ones that drive most of their functions, perform precisely through AI, and this should be further developed, so it is expected that soon there will be buses and trains that will not be directly driven by humans. This, of course, does not mean that there will be no more jobs for people. AI should take on some jobs that are dangerous or harmful to humans, such as the production of toxic substances or the dismantling of bombs and mines.
This is just the beginning of a list of jobs involving the use of artificial intelligence. It is expected that adequate AI-based machines, thanks to their ability to store and process incredibly large amounts of data, could one day come to the solution of major global crises, such as global warming. They are already used in banking, to predict the situation on the stock exchanges, in insurance companies to predict the degree of risk, in medicine for more accurate diagnoses, and applications in smartphones, tablets, and computers.
Robots in the future
What makes artificial intelligence so revolutionary is the so-called “machine” and “deep learning”, a subset of artificial intelligence that allows machines to automatically learn and advance from their own experiences, and deep learning is a set of very complex networks and vast collections of algorithms that can emulate human intelligence.
The use of robots is increasing these days, they are replacing humans in dangerous jobs that humans cannot do. Robots are used in industries where they are almost irreplaceable and enhance the productivity of production, also in all walks of life and even in medicine, such as the four-handed Da Vinci robot; one for video camera control and three for precision surgery. Robot-assisted operations have a major advantage over real surgeons because of their more precise movements, but they are far from replacing real surgeons. The biggest problem facing scientists is how to get emotions from robots.
Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing both education and learning, as there are fewer teachers.
Education requires devices that allow the collection of data to be used by students in the learning process. The robot can help students learn, create new content, and save about 70 percent of their time in teaching and learning.
Leading roboticist claims that shortly, androids will share the same civil rights with humans, including the right to marry both humans and other robots. These claims were made by Dr. David Hanson, the creator of some of the most advanced androids, including Sofia, which recently became the first robot with citizenship.
It will open the door for androids for military and emergency positions as early as 2031, and a decade later it will have full rights.
By 2035, it expects robots to go beyond what humans can do. The new generation will be able to take admissions courses at Universities, receive doctoral degrees, and function with an 18-year-old human intelligence level. It is these robots, Hanson believes, that will launch a global movement for their rights. He predicts that this will happen by 2038 when the ethical treatment of machines by humans will be called into question.
Aware of the problem, which is the ignorance of people about the benefits of artificial intelligence, there are everywhere organizations raising awareness of this worldwide phenomenon. Every day there are new applications, new variations of algorithms that change reality, and artificial intelligence is slowly drawing in all aspects of human functioning, facilitating it and opening up new possibilities.
