Artificial intelligence is one of the most trending topics now-a-days. Since the Sofia too got citizenship and has became the first ever robot to be given citizenship by any country. The topic “Artificial Intelligence” has become the most debating topic now-a-days. Few days back I was serfing the internet basically I was watching Ted Talks. So today I would like to share my views on Artificial Intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence is kind of intelligence shown by machines or it may be anything like a program or so. Basically as the name suggests in the first go is that artificial means kind of something which is man made. And Intelligence makes more sense. So if anybody has a basic knowledge of english may say that artificial intelligence is man made intellegence. And this is not wrong too. And according to wikipedia AI is:
Artificial intelligence (AI, also machine intelligence, MI) is Intelligence displayed by machines, in contrast with the natural intelligence (NI) displayed by humans and other animals. In computer science AI research is defined as the study of “intelligent agents“: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving”.
Why AI is threat ?
So as in many hollywood movies it is shown that they make a robot or develop a system and it learns to further develop itself and then whoop!!! it rules the earth. And now all the human beings are treated as slaves by machines or robots. You may have watched movies like Transformers, Terminator there are many movies on robots , AI available in market. So the general lineup of the movies are like machines somehow gain more intellegence than humans and rulw the world.
I think these are true partially. Partially because there is a 50% chance that this may happen in near future. And 50% not because it still is in our hand. Because basically these all AI learn things in its own, so if we make then to learn only positive and good things then we may posibbly prevent such things in near future. As a coin has two faces likewise there are always pros and kons of anything or more specifically technology. They may help us in anything like god but I don’t want to imagine the other posibility. So in this post I would be writing on Intuitive AI.
Sometimes you may have feeled that you gave a work to your friend and you knew only one method to do it. So it obvious that you will expect your friend to do that task in the only way you knew. But after your friend does the task you get to know that there were other ways too to do so.
All I want to say is that most of the time we are teaching the ways to do a task and ask for improvement over a certain model to a bot or a program. So if you think deeply you will realise that actually we are restricting it by making it to think the way we do. Since there are infinite oppertunities we may discover many new things. And here are few examples of these thoughts too.
So basically researchers at Google Deepmind AI told the bot to move from a position to another position i.e. there were given the end points. They had to move from the start point to the end point. But the most importent thing was that it was never taught what walking is. It means that it only knew that it had something which may move (legs and hands) and it itself learned to walk and run. And the way it did is very important. And yup May be it knows something we don’t .
Since it is always said that you will get exaclty what was said only if you heard it from the same person. So below is that ted talk I was talking about.
Thank you Guys!!!
