We live in a world where automation and human-like robotics have become common in the business community performing data-heavy tasks in milliseconds. Thanks to AI, people can monitor their health and fitness levels using a digital intelligence bracelet, know when the milk is about to run out in a refrigerator, can have driverless cars, and a Google learning machine that is capable of learning data patterns and analyzing them.
I talk about the evolution of the artificial being at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY, 27 November 2018.
I don't remember the time before the Director was born. He controls our life, our conversations, our work, everything. You can't breathe without the Director knowing. He's like God, he's f****** everywhere, until I found a place to hide.
Artificial intelligence is taking the world by storm. If you spend only one day on the Internet, you’ll come across some basic forms of AI, like voice search, autocomplete, chatbots, and many others. These features are only the beginning of many advanced types of artificial intelligence that will soon enter our everyday lives. This article will discuss some of these AI forms to greater detail.
We’ve all heard of robots, but have you ever thought of androids? What I mean by that is something that looks and acts completely human, but is in fact a machine underneath. Some examples that come to mind are Terminator, the androids from Ridley Scott's Alien series, and the new synthetics in the video game Fallout 4. In the Terminator series, the robots know that they are in fact not human and are intent on destroying their creators. In the Alien franchise, the androids know that they are not completely human, yet are co-habitating with mankind, and the generation three synthetics from Fallout 4 do know they are not human, yet yearn to be. Though many argue of the possibility of "killer robots" (Terminator, robot warfare, HAL 900 from 2001: A Space Odyssey, etc.), does this mean we should not explore the possibility of having robot companions? That we should allow fear to dominate a possible prosperous future? I think not! I firmly believe in this line from Theodore Roosevelt’s first inaugural address, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance." We should not allow our fear to destroy a possible better future, but we should also proceed with caution.
I do believe that AI can lead to a positive future for humanity—and not necessarily end up like a cliché horror movie from Hollywood. There are many benefits and marketing ideas for AI that can help many people and businesses. For example:
I am well aware of the Cyber Initiative based on the Mortal Kombat game seen above. I am also aware that in the series it was taken down by Sub-Zero.
Popular opinion has it that artificial intelligence is the future—machine learning has delivered some groundbreaking technologies in the hands of the human race that will change the way people live, work, travel and even eat and exercise.
Artificial intelligence has been in a state of major advancement and growth most especially over the last decade. Some of these latest advancements include concepts such as IoT (Internet of Things), which seeks to create a network between all household appliances, all of which controlled by a smart phone app or an Alexa of sorts. Other advancements include robots that appear more and more human, as well as algorithms that bring certain types of online advertisements up on social media to market far more specifically to people products and services in which they might be interested (while giving people the notion that they are being watched, no less!).
There is never telling what's in store for future discoveries, so we need big thinkers. Before electricity, people never would have thought of what we could be doing now. I've read things about wireless electricity and floating cities in the upcoming future. Being able to grow organs, this would allow the possibility for immortality. From what I've seen humans do in my short 27-year life, I wouldn't put it past them.
There is no doubting that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other advances in technology such as virtual reality are taking a grip on the marketing world. They are taking it by storm.
