Possibilities and Fears of A.I.
When we look at the advancements of technology and our understanding of the human mind we continually encounter the two intersecting. Artificial Intelligence is constantly advancing and becoming part of our daily lives. We normally see this in a virtual world such as video games, but A.I. is also making strides toward our daily lives. In the video above we catch a glimpse of just how real A.I. is and how we may one day see robots in our daily lives. However, this possibility of artificial life doesn't come without fear. Fear that we can't control what we create or fear that A.I. will learn far beyond our own ability. Many of these fears have been realized in movies like iRobot. To allow for our safety and continual advancement of technology and science we must always be several steps ahead and keep using our imagination to envision all possible scenarios but by no means should we stop.
