Mathematics or simply Math. Most people began to sweat as they hear about it. But, when we study about it in depth, one can understand its true power. Mathematics is used in every possible field like economics, computer sciences, physics, chemistry, cosmology and the list goes on.

According to Wikipedia,

The abstract science of number, quantity, and space, either as abstract concepts ( pure mathematics), or as applied to other disciplines such as physics and engineering ( applied mathematics ).

Why is it the language of the universe ?

A language is nothing but a medium through which we transmit data from our brain to someone’s other brain. The impulses generated in our brain are then generated in the other person’s brain.

In order to create an Artificial species ( Artificial Intelligence ), we need to transmit our ideas and data to the computer. A computer cannot understand our language ( full of words and emotions ), but a language of bytes ( bits ). So, which language should we use to join our language and the language of the computer?

A language which both humans and computers can understand. It helps us to transfer our intelligence to a computer, which can carry it further. Humans are trying to express each and every process of their brain in Mathematical equations. But still, humanity is not able to express their emotions in mathematics…

An Illustration

The language of Humans :

Hello World

For a computer :

01001000 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101111 00100000 01110111 01101111 01110010 01101100 01100100

A language which both humans and computers can understand :

[ [ 124 , 235 ] ]

The above example demonstrates how the vocabulary of words in our brain could be given to a computer through the Language of Universe that’s Mathematics


No distractions while talking please!

If we need to develop a human-like intelligence, we need to progress in Mathematics along with Computer Sciences so that we and our AI could understand each other.
