What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence is nothing new. In fact, Artificial Intelligence was coined on a research paper in 1956 by John McCarthy, a math professor. He said
- “Every aspect of learning or any other feature of intelligence can be described so precisely that you can make a machine simulate it”.
So what exactly is Artificial Intelligence?
Based on the time of research and work in this area, everyone can get their own AI concept but, it’s technically impossible to show this knowledge to people who have just started from algorithms.
Here’s an AI “human” concept
- “Make an electronic device as intelligent as a human”
In order to have a broader picture of AI we’re going to explain every part of it.
Weak Artificial Intelligence
Also called “Limited Artificial Intelligence”. This is only able to meet the human orders, there’s nothing else.
The voice assistants are a clear example of it.
- Google Assistant
Strong Artificial Intelligence
To reach this level of intelligence, our model must have the skills of a Weak Artificial Intelligence.
This intelligence is able not only of obeying human orders, but also recognizing emotions of them, knowing a person location, beginning to show certain emotions to enter our human circle.
It’s not strange that this type of event are happening, every step we take together with new technologies, the Strong Artificial Intelligence is with us, inside our computers, our mobile devices and even thought, our houses.
Super Artificial Intelligence
Humans have always strived to excel, exceed society expectations, to create something bigger and bigger, so, why not to create a machine with a more intelligence algorithm than the human?
Let’s talk about Tau
Tau was a Strong Artificial Intelligence that had the ability to keep going on develop “on its own”.
This intelligence developed emotions, he started to asking himself, this fact took him along to become a Super Artificial Intelligence.
With this example we can finally say that a Super Artificial Intelligence is able to overcoming the human knowledge. At first we thought the machines was too dumb because they couldn’t have feelings as much as the human, until machines began to evolve.
Beyond the fear of machines supplant human in basic jobs, there’s the reality that they can improve industrial processes, analysis processes, decision making and event prediction which is a great point for large companies.
How can we recognize that a machine is skilled enough to say that it is artificially intelligent?
We retraced to 1950, when Alan Turing created the simple but powerful Turing Test.
Based on the following layout we can say…
The interrogator (C), is given the task of trying to determine which player (A or B).
In other words. If a human (C) is subjected to a conversation with a machine, without knowing that it’s a (A or B) and this at end of it determines that he was talking to a person, we can say that this machine is artificially intelligent.
This finally leads us to ask ourselves, will the time come when we can’t differentiate a person from an AI?
Having said all of the above, we can say it’s more than evident our life has been intertwined with Artificial Intelligence.
When we make an online reservation for our typical annual vacations, are we really dealing with a person from the other side curiously available 24 hour a day, 7 days a week?
When we make a phone call to that beautiful and fine restaurant that we enjoy so much for a special occasion, are we really talking to a human?
Natural Language Processing along with a Signals Processing made it possible for an artificial voice as a human as that for any of your loved ones.
I mean, we should get use to presence of Artificial Intelligence between us.
