Artificial intelligence – Friend or Nemesis?

Great resource and great risk

Regardless of how artificial intelligenceArtificial Intelligence knows many different definitions, but in general it can be defined as a machine completing complex tasks intelligently, meaning that it mirrors human intelligence and evolves with time. () is defined, there is little doubt that this resource can be of great value, especially in big dataBig Data describes data collections so big that humans are not capable of sifting through all of it in a timely manner. However, with the help of algorithms it is usually possible to find patterns within the data so far hidden to human analyzers.  applications. Many organisations are now collecting more data than they did just a few years ago, making use of business intelligence and descriptive analytic technologies such as query, reporting, comparing and contrasting options so in the end the massive computer power so harnessed helps in analysing what has happened in the past and with use of techniques opens a window leading to accurate predictions.

Immense potential in many areas

Undoubtedly, artificial intelligence is fast becoming a major technology for prescriptive analytics, the step beyond that helps us determine how to implement and/or optimise optimal decisions. In business applications it can assess future risks, quantify probabilities and in so doing, give us insights how to improve market penetration, customer satisfaction, security analysis, trade execution, fraud detection and prevention, while proving indispensable in land and air traffic control, national security and defence. This is not to mention a host of healthcare applications such as patient-specific treatments for diseases and illnesses. Recently, Google’s DeepMind algorithm taught itself how to win Atari games. AlgorithmsAn algorithm is a fixed set of instructions for a computer. It can be very simple like "as long as the incoming number is smaller than 10, print "Hello World!". It can also be very complicated such as the algorithms behind self-driving cars. can now recognise handwritten language and patterns almost as well as humans and even complete some tasks better than them. They are able to describe the contents of photos and videos. Typically the giant search engine firm itself, Google, a pioneer in the field of artificial intelligence, is developing self-driving automobiles, smartphone assistants and other examples of machine while it is no secret that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and actor Ashton Kutcher, recently invested $40 million in an entity focusing on developing artificial brains.

Science-Fiction becomes reality

In science fiction films such as Matrix, we see how futuristic devices will facilitate facial recognition, interpret human comments, self-drive cars, and perform complex language translations. Some of these devices no longer exist in the realm of fantasy but became real tools as a result of advances in science and social media. Recently, Baidu, the Chinese equivalent of Google, invited the military to take part in the China Brain Project. This involves running so-called algorithms over the search engine data collected about its users. Beyond this, a kind of social control is also planned. According to recent reports, every Chinese citizen will receive a so-called “Citizen Score”, which will determine under what conditions they may get loans, jobs, or travel visa to other countries. Certainly a chilly reference to Big Brother dominance. But not all is doom and gloom as we appreciate how social media technology links various civilizations, can teach farmers how to improve crop yields and speed up the progress in complex human genome classification. Delivery dronesDrones are defined as unmanned aircrafts, they can be very small or rather large. Most drones cannot operate completely autonomous, but need human inputs. Moreover, there are a lot of laws in place which do not allow for private drones to fly out of sight., both wheeled and airborne, may in the near future compete with couriers while supermarket robots silently stack food items on shelves and move merchandise in warehouses […]
