IS BIG DATA THE AKASHIC RECORDS FOR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE?
Artificial Intelligence and Big Data
For several decades scientists and researchers around the world have been pondering over the creating of artificial intelligence, in laymen’s terms artificial intelligence is the replication of human conscience and decision-making ability in a machine or computer. But the biggest hurdle in realizing the dream of artificial intelligence is the inability of the machines to handle such a large scale of information that we, as humans use, to make decisions in our life. In order to understand this discussion properly it is extremely important that we learn the meaning of different terms that are being used in this article. First and foremost is “Akashic” it is a term which originated from a Sanskrit word called “Akasha”, which means sky. In esoteric depictions it is the library or Big Data of the Universe.
While Big Data is a general term that is associated with explaining the complexity and quantity of a Dataset that is too large to handle for conventional data processing applications and software. Big Data refers to a virtual or cloud based data processing platform that can handle the humongous amount of data. Now the question arises, how can Big Data help humans create a robotic device or a computer that is able to handle all this data and come up with real-time decisions that would help businesses and consumers all around the world to get better services, share and propagate trends. A central data collection location can accomplish all of these goals by providing a platform that is able to collect, analyze and dissipate this huge collection of data. Those users that trade in Bitcoins would be aware of the Blockchain system that carries the potential to be a big data record that can handle all the transactions that are being conducted around the world using Bitcoin, this Blockchain database is continually evolving to encompass all new transactions (Block sets) that are arising around the world. Blockchain has provided the world with a realistic solution for the problem of limited data analysis capability.
The system is capable of understanding the origins of the transaction and the items involved in the transaction to create a general outline of the demand and supply mechanisms in the market. These outlines can be used as a guide for the businesses and consumers alike to understand what products are in demand and what items are in shortage to help the businesses adopt a Customer pushed trading environment. This huge data collection capability has taken us a step closer to realizing the dream of a connected world, where information flows easily and is not restricted to a selected few who can use it to increase their financial gains but would provide a central artificial intelligence system that consumers, researchers, manufacturers and product developers would be able to analyze and make profitable decisions for their business. It can also help scientists to replicate the decision-making capabilities of the humans to create a central platform that can respond to changes in trends, seasons and demands. The Akashic records; an old legendary esoteric version of a Big Data cloud, so is Big Data the Akashic library for a robot with artificial intelligence?
