Artificial Intelligence undertakes our lives
In the middle of the XX century a new field in computer science was founded. Artificial Intelligence(AI). Today, almost everyone knows something about it. The common knowledge about it is that, AI is a computer program, that imitates human behavior. It learns like human, it thinks like human and it acts like human. But something what is not common to everyone is that AI is already a part of our lives. It participates in many spheres. In Healthcare, E-commerce, Sports, Games, Banking and etc. Recent years AI did a huge progress in healthcare. There is even a thought, that there will be no healthcare anymore, because nobody will need it. AI medicine programs will be able directly interact with human immune system and preemptively create the antibodies for the epidemics that are on their way to influence immune system. This may not happen today, but in long – term perspective, it is a plan for future of the healthcare industry. But there are already fields of healthcare which use AI in curing and diagnosing. AI can help prematurely diagnose the Parkinson’s disease and even treat it. It concerns also other diseases and illnesses, such as – Cancer.
One more AI field which is used by us almost every day, is – Speech Recognition. Program listens to human voice and processes information. Nowadays, it’s mainly used for interacting with functions of mobile phones, search system of Google and navigation (while driving). But future of this field is also bright. It will help people to interact with every device around.
Computer vision is something, that lets devices “see”. It’s used in processing of documents, in recognizing object (which is extremely useful for self-driving cars) and recognizing people’s faces (face recognition systems). But this part of Artificial Intelligence also has a space to develop. Scientists hope, that computer vision one day will be able to replace human eye in much more areas.
Artificial Intelligence develops rapidly, and one day it can even help do create and develop other computer programs, as it learns day by day, collecting more data from all over the world. So, slowly but surely AI undertakes our lives. Luckily, these changes improve our lives. But what if, one-day Artificial Intelligence becomes smarter than humans? Will they try to overcome people? Fortunately for us, companies all over the world try to control these changes, so we don’t see some day Sky Net is trying to destroy humans.
