Artificial Intelligence: Another bubble or a game changer?

Feb 8, 2018 | 4842 Views

AI is already part of our everyday life. And there are still open questions, for example, how does AI impinge on data protection? According to a public consultation conducted by the European Parliament Research Service in 2017, 52% strongly agree or agree that AI is a threat to privacy. In addition, there are also concerns about data ethics and liability.

Many of our processes are built in an exceptionally binary way. Artificial intelligence has made impacts on our lives. For many years, humans will be training algorithms for better. We need to develop tools and technologies to trace so that the people know the meaning behind the functions of algorithms. 

AI will somehow help to get out of own comfort zone. It is our prime responsibility to prepare the next generation with AI as it is developing every moment, every day. Defining the scope and making people aware of AI is required to bring the change in future. AI affects our lives and the way we work and its maintainance will help to bring benefits to all of us as a whole.

Super intelligent algorithms in AI aren't about to take all the jobs or wipe out humanity. But software has gotten significantly smarter. This is why you can talk to your friends as an animated poop on the iPhone X using Apple's Animoji, or ask your smart speaker to order more paper towels.

Tech companies' heavy investments on AI are already changing our lives and gadgets, and laying the groundwork for a more AI-centric future.

Why is AI so important? 
AI has gained much importance and made our lives easier. AI should be more focused on precision rather than its existence. For example; a physically challenged person can use automated cars with the help of AI. 

From SIRI to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI) is progressing rapidly. While science fiction often portrays AI as robots with human-like characteristics, AI can encompass anything from Google's search algorithms to IBM's Watson to autonomous weapons.

Artificial intelligence today is properly known as narrow AI (or weak AI), in that it is designed to perform a narrow task (for example, only facial recognition or only internet searches or only driving a car). However, the long-term goal of many researchers is to create general AI (AGI or strong AI). While narrow AI may outperform humans at whatever its specific task is, like playing chess or solving equations, AGI would outperform humans at nearly every cognitive task. 

Big tech companies such as Google, Microsoft, and Amazon have amassed strong rosters of AI talent and impressive arrays of computers to bolster their core businesses of targeting ads or anticipating your next purchase.
