A general summary of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics is presented with the main stress on the how the present day robots and the future of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics would influence the society and the public life at large.
With the rising importance in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in the parts of medicine, manufacturing, military, and household applications, there is a push to increase the norm of robots and machine learning in these areas.
Over the centuries, machines and computers have performed various tasks and this method seems to be growing exponentially over time. The idea of merging these machineries together with the computational power of computers to act or think in a way humans do, forming computers or machines as intelligent as human beings, has happened for some time.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Artificial intelligence is a division of computer science that aims to fashion smart machines. It has become an important part of the technology industry.
Components of Artificial intelligence (AI)
• Problem solving
• Ability to manipulate and move objects
There are a number of diverse forms of learning as applied to artificial intelligence. The simplest is learning by trial and error. For example, a modest computer program for solving mate-in-one chess glitches might try moves at random until mate is found. The program might then supply the
And with this we are also creating more intelligent machines. Some time ago an essay was published by (Ray Kurzweil) called “The Coming Merging of Mind and Machine” this article goes over a lot of evolutionary advances our machines have come too and will come to in the future of human existence. There is a quote that states “as this happens, there will be no longer be a clear distinction between humans and machines” (Kuzweil). He is saying that in the near future we will have created such advanced technology that people will not be able to tell the difference between human and machines. This means that a computer system or robot will have every this a human has, thoughts, free speech, and perhaps conscience.
Having artificial intelligence as a resource can be beneficial. However, this causes a moral dilemma to occur. Many people realize that artificial intelligence can be used to complete assignments. The moral dilemma is that if someone uses artificial intelligence to complete assignments, they are not learning the content or curriculum. On the other hand, artificial intelligence can save students an abundance of time.
Robots haven’t just inherited a spot in the workforce—they’re showing exceptional productivity, expanding skills, and broadcasting their human counterparts. In recent years, with the engagement of manual labor so high, Americans during the Industrial Revolution had no choice but to deal with long, hard work hours while still dealing with their barbarous conditions. As time goes by, we have witnessed many robotic and mechanical devices replace jobs that were done by people. The question of the matter is whether our jobs are safe or will robots soon snatch jobs away from humans completely? The demand for artificial intelligence is rapidly overshadowing the time consumption and work hours that was once satisfied by the duties of human labor.
For example, while I was looking at Mr.Tassel’s field, “[my] imagination expanded with the idea that the land might easily be turned into cash. [I] dreamed how the money could be invested in huge areas of wild land and palaces in the wilderness.” This states that my intelligence created a plan that
Advancing Technologies Technology is advancing day-by-day to make people work easier and more efficient. Machines are used every day at home to in factories, from vacuuming in the house to the producing a car in the factory. The article, "Review: The Second Maching Age," by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, focuses on the benefits of the computer generated machines to the economy and humans and discusses about advantages of the computer processing due it 's "artificial intelligence, networked communication, and the digitization of just about everything . " Machines are capable of performing tasks more quickly and efficiently, produces higher quality goods and at a lower service price, and increases economical growth.
However, this concept is purely science fiction and has been described in the book “Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies” (Oxford University Press, 2014), by philosopher Nick Bostrom. The book describes three scenarios, the first part is where intelligent software develops increasingly, the second is a breakthrough is made where programs are created with intelligence on par with humans, and the third is a singular super-intelligence takes hold and outcompetes all of humanity.
Based upon the analysis, Parnas’ article is geared more towards people involved in the field of Artificial Intelligence where Eldridge’s article is geared towards people who are not necessarily knowledgeable about Artificial Intelligence yet are interested to learn more about the topic. Throughout the article, Parnas maintains the skeptical attitude towards Artificial Intelligence, literally ending with “Devices that use heuristics to create the illusion of Intelligence present a risk we should not accept” (Parnas, 6). Eldridge on the other hand, maintains a positive attitude throughout the article despite the shortcomings of AI. Together, both authors provide compelling arguments for and against Artificial
The Turing test has become the most widely accepted test of artificial intelligence and the most influential. There are also considerable arguments that the Turing test is not enough to confirm intelligence. Legg and Hutter (2007) cite Block (1981) and Searle (1980) as arguing that a machine may appear intelligent by using a very large set of
Rise of Artificial Intelligence and Ethics: Literature Review The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, authored by Nick Bostrom and Eliezer Yudkowsky, as a draft for the Cambridge Handbook of Artificial Intelligence, introduces five (5) topics of discussion in the realm of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and ethics, including, short term AI ethical issues, AI safety challenges, moral status of AI, how to conduct ethical assessment of AI, and super-intelligent Artificial Intelligence issues or, what happens when AI becomes much more intelligent than humans, but without ethical constraints? This topic of ethics and morality within AI is of particular interest for me as I will be working with machine learning, mathematical modeling, and computer simulations for my upcoming summer internship at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Norco, California. After I complete my Master Degree in 2020 at Northeastern University, I will become a full time research engineer working at this navy laboratory. At the suggestion of my NSWC mentor, I have opted to concentrate my master’s degree in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Algorithm Development, technologies which are all strongly associated with AI. Nick Bostrom, one of the authors on this article, is Professor in the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford University and the Director at the Future of Humanity Institute within the Oxford Martin School.
The author's purpose in writing “Robot Invasion” was to represent the effectiveness and relevance of robots in today’s society. The author is able to persuade the reader that robots are beneficial to society by stating statements such as “the robots will be able to unleash a productive boom”. This statement from the author really exemplifies the positive impact that robots have on our everyday lives by making our everyday tasks easier and having robots be the productive
— Bill Gates Bottom Line Artificial intelligence was once a sci-fi movie plot but it is now happening in real life. Humans will need to find a way to adapt to these breakthrough technologies just as we have done in the past with other technological advancement. The workforce will be affected in ways difficult to imagine as for the first time in our history a machine will be able to think and in many cases much more precisely than
As technology and robotics progress, people continue to debate how jobs and careers could be affected. Robotic replacement might not have a negative effect , especially since it has helped our development to be able to survive. The process of the robotic development started in the industrial age. The industrial age is known for “a period in which fundamental changes
I do not believe the field has been developed to its potential in any regard, and feel that considerable progress can be made to improve the interactive experience that users have with an artificial intelligence application. This genuine intrigue combined with my curiosity for the subject matter and the limitless potential of the field are the reason why I wish to pursue a greater depth of knowledge in artificial
