The Dawn of the Age of Artificial Intelligence

The Dawn of the Age of Artificial Intelligence | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

The advances we’ve seen in the past few years—cars that drive themselves, useful humanoid robots, speech recognition and synthesis systems, 3D printers,Jeopardy!-champion computers—are not the crowning achievements of the computer era. They’re the warm-up acts. As we move deeper into the second machine age we’ll see more and more such wonders, and they’ll become more and more impressive.

How can we be so sure? Because the exponential, digital, and recombinant powers of the second machine age have made it possible for humanity to create two of the most important one-time events in our history: the emergence of real, useful artificial intelligence (AI) and the connection of most of the people on the planet via a common digital network.

Either of these advances alone would fundamentally change our growth prospects. When combined, they’re more important than anything since the Industrial Revolution, which forever transformed how physical work was done.

The dawn Of Artificial Intelligence>> Erik Brynjolfson and Andrew McAfee>> 2.14.14.>> This article is about how artificial intelligence is gaining popularity in the world// These technologies range from smart phones to hearing aids and beyond. They are gaining a steady in crease in the world, as dif. parts of the planet begin to industrialize. It is believed in the near future that everything will be automated// The author also believes this and has evidences of this by his notation of numerous innovations, rapid increases in certain <AI> technologies or technologies related to AI, and how everything is becoming 'automated', all within the text.// They should include more or something more in depth about AI's effect on prosthetics.// This is important to science because as we develop technologies (Artificial Intelligence), it can be used to find more scientific discoveries. (ex. microscope, we used it to prove that animals and all things in existence are made up of cells..)

Everyone’s more interested in artificial intelligence since news broke that Google acquired a secretive startup called DeepMind. The technology has big promise, but make no mistake: It’s not sentient yet, and Google is far from alone in its quest.
