“Artificial Intelligence is going to change the world more than anything in the history of mankind. More than electricity.” – Dr. Kai-Fu Lee (AI Oracle and Venture Capitalist)
Artificial Intelligence in progressing rapidly in the world, from Microsoft Cortana, Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa to Elon Musk’s Self driving tesla car, AI has been everywhere. The developments in AI started in past decade, it can be used anywhere from Google’s algorithms search to Autonomous military weapons.
AI will have an irreversible impact on human evolution good or bad, in either way. Already we are using AI in our daily lives in smartphones and digital appliances. With the increase in AI, robots are going to become much smarter and will be capable of doing difficult and tedious tasks which takes multiple humans to complete. Very soon most of the work humans do will be automated, within 40 years humans will have only 10% of today’s jobs.
Many AI researchers and smart people around the world think that Artificial Intelligence once become smarter than human intelligence, will lead to very little understanding of AI by humans. Elon Musk in his recent interview told that humans are more in existential threat from AI than any other thing in world.
There’s no concept called good or bad AI, it’s the intentions of the developer or the way it’s been programmed. As Stephen Hawking said “Á super intelligent AI will be extremely good at accomplishing it’s goals, and if these goals don’t align with ours, we’re in trouble.”
Many researchers and scientists say there’s a major chance that humans will become immortals or get extinct by the end of 21st century. There are differences in opinions between the AI researchers about the good and harm that AI can cause.
Coming to the pro’s, AI will lead to Automated transportation by smart vehicles, we’re already seeing self-driving cars in use.
Humans have many limitations, such as short lifespan and limited energy in our bodies, using AI in very near future humanoid robots will come. Where humans will be connected to AI by brain and mechanical body parts will come into existence.
Robots will also take over dangerous and hazardous jobs of humans, and in military technology for diffusing bombs and will also be helpful in battlefield. Robots will also help in fighting climate change as they have access to huge amount of data and statistics, using all this AI will come up with modern solutions for preserving the only planet that hosts life.
