Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence is the intelligence that comes from machines. it is artificial because it is created by humans meaning it isnt created by mother nature. Artificial intelligence aims to make machines more like humans in terms of the accions they make when they interact with the environment and in terms of reasoning and recognising objects and associating them with existing matter.

 

The evolution of artificial intelligence is developing quite rapidly with the great advance of nano tecnology, computing and most importantly robotics. Scientists from all over the world work to make artificial intelligence more like human intelligence. For now robots can recognise objects and interact with them but still in a sloppy manner as tecnology has not yet advance as much as to create precise interaction.

 

The advance of artificial intelligence has created a subject for discussion in which philosophers have participated aswell as scientists. The main discussion is "does artificial intelligence have the same caracteristics as human intelligence?". Most people suggest it doesn't as artificial intelligence can't reason till this day, but will it be able to in the future? Then, how will we be able to differentiate between artificial intelligence and human intelligence?

How can robotics have an impact in human lives?

There are many debates that discuss the impact that future robotics could have on human lives. There are many movies that expose ways of life in the future where robots interact with human beings like star wars, I Robot,
Artificial Inteligence etc. In the majority of these movies humanity doesn't end up well thanks to the interaction between robotics and human beings.

 

These are the subjects that are discussed by scientists and phylosophers. Some think that when robotics reaches a high level of evolution humans will depend on it and some think that robots will take over the world in a plot against humanity, but all these suggestions are just theories that cannot be predicted until advanced robotics is at the reach of human hands.

    In my opinion I think AI will never reach the exact way of thinking as Natural intelligence as AI will never reach the fase of reasoning.

    I don't agree with Defragen. I think that AI will reach the capability of reasoning and I think that AI will reach superior intelligence than human beings. This I think is a very dangerous and delicate matter that will hit humanity in the face in the future.

    I still think that it will be highly unprobable to immitate AI. It is something out of human imagination.

    This particular article was in fact precisely what I was looking for!
