Hey readers, It’s Roshni Sen Co-head, Journalist, and Artist. Artificial intelligence has been a hot topic in the 21st century for years. AI is a powerful tool which is helping companies to have better strategies. Machines can learn a large amount of data in various dimensions. In our daily lives, we see various examples of AI. Be it Siri, Alexa or Cortana. Even getting recommendations for the books or smart replies in Gmail or Chatbots. AI has already become a part of our lives and whether we like to believe or not we have become dependent on it. AI may not replace human interaction. But the big question that goes around is AI going to take over the world? Will AI be smarter than humans to remove our purpose. Well, there is no clear answer to this question, all we can do is speculate. The technological singularity is a hypothetical future point in time at which technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization. Do we need to be scared of AI? And the answer to this question is no. Every time a new invention takes place, it brings up some kind of trepidation with it. The invention of phones made people think, the basic civil conversation would end. The invention of cars made people think it would be killing families. All this is true to an extent. But all these inventions brought to us things that extended the human experience in profound ways. That is the whole point of developing intelligent machines. Machines that can help humanity do things that are too tiresome and difficult to do at the present mark of time. Fearing a super-intelligent AI makes no sense as it would not be programmed but rather taught, eventually embodying our core values. The AI that we’ll ( and future generations) will work on will be to assist us and not take over us. We must learn from the past and try not to be scared of innovation.
