Dawn Of The Planet of A.I. (Artificial Intelligence)
“ ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE” as the name suggests, means intelligence exhibited by machines. The term A.I is applied when a machine mimics ‘cognitive’ functions which are associated with humans like, learning and problem solving. Chess, go systems and self driving cars are some of the capabilities of Mr. A.I. In many AI version tools like search and mathematical organization, logic, method based on probability and economics are also included. This field draws its inspiration from computer science, mathematics, psychology, linguistics, philosophy, neuroscience and artificial psychology.
The term ‘robot’ was first coined by Karel Capek in the 1921 play – R.U.R i.e., “ Rossums Universal Robot”, the sci-fic writer Issac Asimov coined the three laws of robotics, since then traction in genuine AI research.
AI was seen in many movies like ‘THE TERMINATOR’ of 1984, ‘AI’ of 2001 and the recently released ‘AVENGERS: Age of Ultron’. Recently, in Jan, 2012 a businessman Elon Musk donated 10 million dollars to the “future of life institute” to fund research on Mr. AI’s decision making. Musk also funds companies developing AI such as Google’s “DEEP MIND” & “VICARIOUS”.
I hope that one day AI will grow much sharper, but every positive has a negative, it should not happen that AI dominates humans, if this happens then we will have to become ‘WILL SMITH” of I’ROBOT. Let’s hope our future with AI is safe and bright.
