Where are we currently?

As of now, humans have conquered the lowest caliber of AI — ANI — in many ways, and it’s everywhere:

  • Cars are full of ani systems, from the computer that figures out when the Anti-Lock brakes kick in, to the computer that tunes the parameters of the fuel injection systems.
  • Google is one large ani brain with incredibly sophisticated methods for ranking pages and figuring out what to show you in particular.
  • Spam filters “start off loaded with intelligence about how to figure out what’s spam and what’s not.
  • Passenger planes are flown almost entirely by ANI, without the help of humans.

Most experts agree that there are three categories, or calibers, of AI development:

  • ANI: Artificial Narrow Intelligence. 1st intelligence caliber. AI that specializes in one area. 
  • AGI: Artificial General Intelligence: AI that reaches and then passes the intelligence level of a human, meaning it has the ability to “reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly, and learn from experience.”
  • ASI: Artificial Super Intelligence: AI that achieves a level of intelligence smarter than all of humanity combined.

Introduction
  • Assuming that human scientific activity continues without major disruptions, artificial intelligence may become either the most positive transformation of our history or, as many fear, our most dangerous invention of all. 
  • AI research is on a steady path to develop a computer that has cognitive abilities equal to the human brain, most likely within three decades.
  • From what most AI scientists predict, this invention may enable very rapid improvements (called fast take-off), toward something much more powerful — Artificial Super Intelligence — an entity smarter than all of humanity combined.

In 2013, Vincent C. Müller and Nick Bostrom conducted a survey that asked hundreds of AI expert the following:

  • Median optimistic year (10% likelihood) → 2022
    Median realistic year (50% likelihood) → 2040
    Median pessimistic year (90% likelihood) → 2075

So the median participant thinks it’s more likely than not that we’ll have AGI 25 years from now.

If we conquer nanotechnology, the next step will be the ability to manipulate individual atoms, which are only one order of magnitude smaller.

Nanotechnology is an idea that comes up in almost everything you read about the future of AI. It’s the technology that works at the nano scale — from 1 to 100 nanometers. A nanometer is a millionth of a millimeter.

AI wouldn’t see ‘human-level intelligence’ as some important milestone — it’s only a relevant marker from our point of view — and wouldn’t have any reason to ‘stop’ at our level.

And given the advantages over us that even human intelligence-equivalent AGI would have, it’s pretty obvious that it would only hit human intelligence for a brief instant before racing onwards to the realm of superior-to-human intelligence.

Narrow AI & General AI

Very broadly, AI can be divided into two: narrow AI and general AI.

1. Narrow AI systems handle singular or limited tasks. Also referred to as weak AI sometimes, such systems have applications in email spam filtering, recommendation systems, and autonomous vehicles.

2. On the other hand, general AI or strong AI, refers to a machine’s capability to think and function as a human. It denotes the ability to distinctly recognise other intelligent entities’ needs, emotions, and thoughts.

Artificial Intelligence

What is Artificial Intelligence? Who knows. It’ s an ever-moving target to define what is or isn’t AI. So, I’d like to dive into a science that’s a little more concrete — Computational Intelligence (CI). CI is a three-branched set of theories along with their design and applications. They are more mathematically rigorous and can separate you from the pack by adding to your Data Science toolbox. You may be familiar with these branches — — Neural Networks , Evolutionary Computation , and Fuzzy Systems . Diving into CI, we can talk about sophisticated algorithms that solve more complex problem

Artificial intelligence (AI)

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been around since the 1950s. The original pioneers dreamed of a computer that could perform tasks like humans, such as playing chess or translating languages. But the plans didn't come to fruition, and AI soon fell out of favour.

AI technology continued to improve exponentially over the next few decades. Many organisations now embrace AI as a core element of their business.
