Artificial Intelligence....Should I be Worried?

Artificial Intelligence, or AI for short, refers to the ability of a computer system to perform intellectual tasks such as speech recognition, language translation, visual perception, decision making, pattern recognition, and processing vast amounts of data, among other things.

In theory, AI can be thought of as a smart computer designed to think and make decisions like a human, which can be a daunting prospect.

There are currently four types of AI, namely Reactive, Limited Memory, Theory of Mind, and Self-Awareness. Reactive and Limited Memory AI are currently in use, which enables our cars to drive us with no input and suggests what we may like to watch on Netflix based on our previous viewing habits.


On the other hand, Theory of Mind and Self-Awareness AI are more complex and will allow computers to understand intentions and have self-awareness of their existence and emotions. I,Robot 2004 quickly comes to mind!

Despite its potential risks, AI also has a lot of good to offer. It can quickly process and accurately sort through an incredible amount of data that would otherwise take us months or even years. It is our hope that AI producers will use it for good, but only time will tell.
