The World of Artificial Intelligence

The World of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is a subdiscipline of computer science. The main objective of this wise technology is to create intelligent agents, that is, to develop software or create a combination of software and hardware, able to observe and study the environment in which it is present. Artificial Intelligence, also known as AI, is classified into two areas: strong AI and weak AI. Strong Artificial Intelligence means "computational intelligence" that meets or exceeds manual or human intelligence in a particular area. Weak AI, on the other hand, is completely the opposite of strong AI, because it is not designed to match human intelligence for any given activity. The world we are living in today is full of artificial intelligence. May be we do not acknowledge it, but it is still present in many things. There are different types of Artificial Intelligence technology or computer automation systems that are changing our lives; for instance, you can ask anything from search engines like Google™ and Bing™ and get the related answers.
Let's take a look at the world of AI today and how recent advances in Artificial Intelligence could change our future.
The World of Artificial Intelligence

The World of Artificial Intelligence Today

Robotics: Robotics is evolving swiftly with AI technology. In the past, robots were simple machines, which couldn't automate things and only worked with manual remote controls. However, present-day robots are smart and incorporated with environmental sensors that can study the surrounding environment and detect explosives, as well as carry out a lot of critical tasks.
Automatic Vacuum: The automatic vacuum, also known as a Robotic vacuum, is one of the basic types of AI technology. An automatic vacuum can learn and map the strategies of an area. This device can learn the coordinates of a room, based on hitting objects such as furniture and walls of the room. Once it has mapped the home, it can easily plan and clean all the rooms without hitting any object.
Chat Bots
Voice Recognition Systems: Voice recognition systems (speech recognition) also come under artificial intelligence technology. Voice recognition technology is available in most smartphones and cars. These systems were the most cumbersome to build, because it is hard to decipher different voices and their characteristics. Modern voice recognition systems, such as Google™ Now ---formerly known as Google™ Voice Search--- use effective learning techniques to improve voice search.[1]
Chatbots: Chatbots are common these days, and they are likewise another type of AI technology. Recently, Google™ launched its application "Google™ Allo," which is incorporated with an impressive chatbot. Microsoft’s Cortana™ and Apple’s Siri™ are also great examples of intelligent chatbots. Future chatbots will be more accurate in stimulating smart or intelligent conversations with humans.

Navigation Systems: Navigation systems are also smart computer systems that use AI technology. One great example is car navigation systems. You just need to enter the destination to get the directions, with the AI system determining them after detecting your current location. Navigation systems are also advancing: for instance, we can get traffic updates, along with the directions, as well as suggestions for the fastest routes.

Artificial Intelligence technology is advancing very fast, but it is still far behind our brains. It might take many years for AI  machines to use "logic," in order to determine the best methods of troubleshooting. Nevertheless, artificial intelligence is behind some of the most revolutionary advances in modern mechanics, medicines, and more. Our lives are incomplete without artificial intelligence today. Let's take a look at some recent advances in AI.

Recent Advances in AI

Development of Robotic Surgery
The Development of Robotic Surgery: The Henry Ford Hospital is using 3D robotic instruments (The Da Vinci® Robot: a Robotic Surgical System) for prostate surgery. In 2008, they employed the use of 3D robotics for kidney removal; it was the very first robotic kidney removal procedure. Surprisingly, the procedure resulted in less blood loss, quicker healing time, and a better cosmetic result, due to the single incision. Today, robot-assisted surgeries are helping surgeons to perform many complex procedures with more control, flexibility, and precision.[2] 

Artificial Intelligence in Public Infrastructure: Robotic crawlers are great examples of AI in public infrastructure. They can identify weak spots in power and high-voltage transmission lines.[3]

The U.S. Military has also employed AI technology in its systems in the form of automobiles, as well as other smart gadgets which can detect explosives.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence: Future Prospects

Most people are skeptical about the future of AI. Some are not sure whether it is going to be beneficial for humanity, while others are eagerly waiting to see some great innovations.
Smart Machines: No one can predict the future, but, as per the current scenario, it is easy to say that we are going to see a new sort of "Animal-Inspired" smart machines. However, these smart machines will change and update over time, as an aftereffect of their interactions with the world. They will be strange, regardless of how smart they'll work. These machines are going to enter the public consciousness for sure.[4]
Robots: Future robots will take over all jobs, just like present applications have taken over most small businesses. We will have smart robots designed for specific tasks and certain jobs.
  • According to Pieter Abbeel, an associate professor at the University of California, Berkeley, robots will keep us safe from disasters. Moreover, traffic accidents and deaths will be prevented through AI technology.
  • As per Stuart Russell, a professor of computer science at the University of California, Berkeley, future AI computers will solve all the problems that are related to climate change.  


Web 3.0: Web 3.0 (Third-GenerationWeb) is an ongoing project, as well as the next big thing in the evolution of the world wide web and its applications. This project is attempting to correct the semantic inadequacies of the existing web (2.0) by introducing dynamic and versatile markup to the documents that make up the network. Web 2.0 is the social web (bookmarking, social sharing, hash tagging, and more), while Web 3.0 will be the intelligent web, for example, intelligent software agents, intelligent browsing, and other aspects of artificial intelligence technologies. [5]

Nanobots: Would it not be amazing, if we could learn a new language or skill in 2-3 minutes, just by downloading it into our brains? According to Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google, it is possible through Nanobots. These tiny robots, if implanted in our heads, help us access and learn any new language, skill, or any information in just a few minutes. Ray Kurzweil also predicts that, by 2030, humans will be able to archive their thoughts and memories through Nanobots. In short, these tiny robots will make us God-like! This AI advancement, if used positively, can do great things, like improving human intelligence and treating conditions like epilepsy.

Artificial Intelligence and Globalization

There are limitless exciting possibilities! Artificial Intelligence will definitely do wonders in the future, just like it is doing right now; it is like crafting our own mind. Who would have thought that we will have advanced sensors? Who envisioned that we will have smartphones? In recent years, we have achieved a lot through artificial intelligence. In fact, AI has played a major role in globalization; for instance, we have successfully established the platform of outsourcing, and who can forget the social media that helped us connect with different parts of the world. In the past, we had only one medium to know about the world, television, but now we have social networks to get the real statistics.

What can happen in the Future?

No one can predict the future, but, when it comes to artificial intelligence, it is highly predictable that we will swiftly advance. Our life is nothing without artificial intelligence, because we are addicted to the technology. Can you live without a smartphone? No, and why would you, when you get benefits from it? The same rules apply in the field of artificial intelligence; we now have brains big enough to create intelligent machines for our comfort and convenience. This concept is all about teaching the machines to learn, execute certain tasks,  solve problems, as well as to become smart and intelligent. However, some AI studies suggest that machines need to think for themselves, in order to succeed in the future; basically, they need to self-direct certain tasks by using logic. The future of AI is bright, as it has many benefits for humankind; however, the same have the potential to ruin us. Some of the potential risks of future Artificial Intelligence systems include minimal amounts of manual jobs, less privacy, and machine dependency. Nevertheless, the benefits of AI will greatly outweigh its disadvantages. We have adjusted in the past, we are adjusting with the technology in the present, and we will surely adjust in the future, as well.  The Artificial Intelligence systems of our future will change warfare, revolutionize disaster response, international strategies, and other critical  areas of our lives
Artificial Intelligence Systems

Bottom Line

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will definitely change the future, because it is poised on the verge of infinite interesting possibilities, and these possibilities could make their way into your office and home. We should not forget that artificial intelligence will also change the prospect of studying, and it could likewise introduce different, unique areas of engineering and technology. In fact, Artificial Intelligence has the potential to reinvent the whole education system. AI can bring about great changes.
Artificial Intelligence will change our future

How to Deal with Writer’s Block?

  You've probably heard this phrase “once a speaker always a speaker.” Well, this phrase perfectly fits with almost every profession except writing. Yes, you read that correctly. Once you stop writing, you develop a block in your mind which hinders your ability to write again consistently. Once you stop writing you construct a barrier called “Writer’s Block.”  Image by  Lukas Bieri  from  Pixabay   The common causes of writer’s block are psychological vulnerability, emotional setbacks and financial instability. There are tons of writers/authors step out because there is less money and more time investment in this job. A well written and researched copy can take more than 2 days to craft. Those who want to come back to writing again struggle with writer's block. However, the good news is there is always a gleam of hope; there are chances that you will become a better writer than before. But, it requires some effort to overcome the writer’s block.

Why is Society important?

Why is Society so important? Why do we care a lot about society? Why we do all the things considering society in mind? What about society irritates us? Why we are judged for every single step we take? Why it is so important? These questions often come in our mind when we are judged by the society. We begin to curse society due to its negative impacts in our lives. Of course, we are the ones who create society and we are crucial members of it as well. Global societies are generally incorporated with different cultures and religions, and it is a fact that a community would look awful with the same type of people; we are not robots. The basic nature of the term "society" is democratic , then why we force cultural expectations in it? I am including relatives also in society, because apart from our neighbors, colleagues, and other people who comes into the circle of social interaction, relatives are also part of it; they are also living under the same socially accepted norms.
