Artificial intelligence is the term that is commonly used for computers that can think. This is actually a true term when you think of it. A computer system is a completely artificial machine, made up of parts developed for a specific purpose. If the machine is given any form of intelligence it must come from man himself, because the computer lacks the capability to perform such a task on its own. With this in mind, the researchers for artificial intelligence are focusing on a way to make the computers of the future more human like in nature. This is done by way of intelligence chips that are built into the computer system which teaches the machine how to learn on its own through outside sources and not having to be prompted to undertake so by man.
The Incredible Inventions Of Intuitive AI — Maurice Conti
“What do you get when you give a design tool a digital nervous system? Computers that improve our ability to think and imagine. And robotic systems that come up with (and build) radical new designs for bridges, cars, drones and much more — all by themselves. Take a tour of the Augmented Age with futurist Maurice Conti. Preview a time when robots and humans will work side-by-side to accomplish things neither could do alone.”
An experiment by a large company to build a computer that would defeat the master chess champions took place some years ago. The company believed that they had created the perfect chess playing machine and put it to the final exam.
Don’t Fear Intelligent Machines. Work With Them — Garry Kasparov
“We must face our fears if we want to get the most out of technology — and we must conquer those fears if we want to get the best out of humanity, says Garry Kasparov. One of the greatest chess players in history, Kasparov lost a memorable match to IBM supercomputer Deep Blue in 1997. Now he shares his vision for a future where intelligent machines help us turn our grandest dreams into reality.”
The computer has evolved from the great hulking beast that once took up three rooms to the now portable versions that could be taken anywhere. The abilities that the computers have are also highly advanced in comparison. The early devices did little more than just help humans to solve complicated math problems and store large amounts of information. Today computers play movies and control complicated machinery and systems to help avoid human mistakes.
Get Ready For Hybrid Thinking — Ray Kurzweil
“Two hundred million years ago, our mammal ancestors developed a new brain feature: the neocortex. This stamp-sized piece of tissue (wrapped around a brain the size of a walnut) is the key to what humanity has become. Now, futurist Ray Kurzweil suggests, we should get ready for the next big leap in brain power, as we tap into the computing power in the cloud.”
During the last few years, it is hard to imagine of a more buzzed around— or highly competitive — technology than artificial intelligence. As more businesses are pushing for new ways to implement deep learning and data science and reap the benefits of robotics, an AI boom is obviously not coming: it’s already here.
Hedge funds are using AI to beat the stock exchange and American Express is utilizing AI bots to serve its customers online. Researchers no longer refer to just one AI, but of hundreds, each focusing on a complex task. Today, countries and organizations are pouring billions into Artificial Intelligence. Recent advancements have startled even scientists operating in the field. What was once a plot device in sci-fi movies is in the process of being reality.
