Intelligence is not easy to define, Psychologists divide intelligence into six major subsets (cognitive skills). In the case of animals, Motor planning, cognitive flexibility, generativity, working memory, arithmetic and abstract reasoning are those skills which define intelligence. As expected, all these skills in case of an animal are flawed to some degree, errors, which defines them. In the case of artificial intelligence, humanity took the liberty to rectify those errors and dared to imagine something flawless and absolutely dedicated to serving humankind.
The primary goal behind the development of artificial intelligence was to reduce human pain and suffering and make life easier than ever. The tools we created for daily chores including guns can be trusted upon this new kind of flawlessness.
Unfortunately, the biggest problem of humanity right now is population. What if artificial intelligence decides to reduce it to a favourable measure? Unacceptable right?
This very question forces to rethink if the time is at all ripe for a wholistic deployment. Fear is maybe an evolutionary error, but before involving the lives of fellow earthlings fear can be a guiding force.
As instinctive explorers ignoring even the right kind of fear has always been human nature. Arguably the same thing could be done with deployment of artificial intelligence as well! But, do we have a clear idea regarding the required amount of organic supervision. Can we just relax in a world automated to its teeth?
Artificial intelligence is on its way to eradicate human error from all the aspects of today’s fast-paced lifestyle. If introduced properly, it has the potential to change the way we think and act completely. Perhaps, it will make us lazier with passing days but at the same time, it can reduce the number of failed surgeries and traffic casualties.
Today’s enthusiasts are eager to get proper grooming necessary for handling artificial intelligence in order to get better jobs, but what if employers decide to choose an artificially intelligent android over a regular human employee?
Awareness regarding artificial intelligence is still in a very primitive state in our country. Especially around the big cities, the training institutes are located. Rural students lack the zeal to pursue the sophisticated field perhaps due to poverty and other struggles unknown to today’s netizens. You can find an artificial intelligence course in Gurgaon or Bangalore, maybe even in Kolkata. But the opportunity to learn is too little and compared to the rest of the world maybe too late.
It is pleasing to sit and travel in a self-driving car, going to places without batting an eye. Given, we forget and ignore that driving someone else’s car is still a major profession worldwide.
