Artificial Intelligence and its ever-evolving nature
An introduction: Why do companies invest in AI?
The advancement in technologies, specifically AI-based tech, has been in limelight ever since their existence. Many top researchers are concerned in a deep study of AI to increase its intervention in human lives. Companies invest their fortunes for the sole purpose of AI research and its implementation knowing that this field has the potential to evolve to an extend that humans would be heavily dependent on the use of these technologies in their daily lives. This can serve to be the reason of a heavy financial gain in the long run.
Narrow AI and General AI:
Artificial Intelligence, as we know today, comes under the umbrella of Narrow AI. Sometimes called Weak AI, it has its implementation limited to a determined purpose. Most common examples of Narrow AI are Google Assistant and Siri.
A hint of AI can also be noticed in social media posts and advertisements. The computer analyses your choices and habitual actions based on which, related suggestions and recommendations are made. You like a post on Facebook, and after scrolling down a bit, you see a post with the label of “Suggested Post” that might be of your interest or something similar to what you have previously given a thumbs up. Interesting, right?
Little known is another amazing term, called the General AI, or the Strong AI. This can be understood as the capability of a machine to perform tasks which are if done by humans, would require excellent intellectual abilities. In other words, the machine is granted the ability to think, feel, and respond like us in terms of emotions. It’s just like replicating a human into its exact artificial instance. Strong AI is still under study and mostly is a part of sci-fi. Whatever we see in sci-fi movies, gives us an idea of how massive and influential AI could become if properly implemented with good intentions.
How AI might prove to be fruitful?
One thing is sure that the strong AI possess the power to supersede human intelligence by its ever-improving proficiency. A positive aspect of this could be that it might help us in eliminating world-wide crises such as health issues, peace keeping, environmental issues such as threat to nature and elimination of pollution by providing advancement in the way such crises are dealt with. We might have more intelligent solutions and become open to more ideas of improving our lifestyles and leading a better life. AI could help us develop intelligent bots that would assist us in our everyday life, ultimately reducing our chances of doing cumbersome tasks.
Indulgence of AI-based technology among human force would surely prove to be a turning point for the way we make the world work.
