It is a well-known fact that Artificial Intelligence is progressing rapidly, from auto industry to the tech world, new innovations are taking place each day and technology is touching new heights. It is also not hard to imagine that its pace of growth will further increase in future. AI is making some breathtaking achievements from quite some time now it is helping mankind in simplifying some complicated tasks, but recently it has even surpassed the capabilities of human brain. Sounds interesting? So, without wasting any more time, let’s make you aware with the recent achievements of AI.
Google’s AI, all set to Defeat World’s Go Champion
Very recently, Google’s Deepmind has created a new milestone in the field of AI. The company announced that it has developed a new set of neural network, having the potential to even defeat the human brain. The company also successfully fulfilled all its claims when this new AI system i.e. Alpha Go has defeated the European champion of Go (Go is the most complicated mathematical game around the globe).
To further prove its efficiency, Google Deepmind’s ‘Alpha Go’ is once again ready to compete with the world’s champion of Go, i.e. Lee Sedol of South Korea. The match will take place from March 9 to March 15, 2016 and will be broadcasted live on YouTube.
It is really surprising to see how artificial intelligence is slowly tweaking the world of technology. The technology that we generally use to do some tasks on our cell phones or smart devices is now reached to a point where it has gained the capability to defeat human’s mind. It would not be wrong to say that artificial intelligence is becoming smarter than human intelligence.
Microsoft’s New Swift key
Any tech giant does not want to stay behind in the race of Artificial Intelligence and same is the case with Microsoft. To stay ahead with the latest innovations Microsoft has purchased SwiftKey, a British software keyboard company by doing a $250 million deal. This is a huge amount that clearly shows the desperation of the company of adding some value to the world of AI, by developing intelligent keyboards.
For those who don’t know, it is important to mention that SwiftKey is a market leading keyboard app developer for Android and IOS that uses Artificial Intelligence with a mission to enhance interaction between human and technology.
The new alliance of Microsoft and SwiftKey will surely open new prospects of development of such intelligent keyboards that will help in saving a significant amount of user’s time, he generally spend while typing. The artificially intelligent keyboards will be able to understand much more than human language, but what the future plans of Microsoft and SwiftKey are, it is going to be an interesting thing to observe in future.
Mark Zuckerberg’s New AI Resolution
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook and the sixth richest person on earth has taken a new resolution of developing Artificial Intelligence to such an extent where it can be used for doing all household chores and office works, much more that can be expected from a human assistance.
Mark wants to make this new AI assisted system so intelligent that it can recognize voices, manage domestic controls such as lights, temperature and music etc., recognize the guests that come at the doorstep, can takes care of his daughter when Mark will not be around. And also that can manage all the important tasks of his office, so that he can run its organization more efficiently.
The progress that will take place in future will remain an interesting thing to observe, but when Mark will become successful in fulfilling his resolution, there will be a new rise of AI worldwide.
Future Trends of AI
Sometime back we used to say that even if the Artificial Intelligence is progressing, but it is not capable to surpass the capabilities of humans’ brain, but the recent development of Google’s Deepmind ‘Alpha Go’ proved it wrong. The speed with which the technology is rising, seems like soon machines will become more intelligent than humans.
Also, it would not be wrong to say that in the upcoming years, artificially intelligent machines might be helping humans in taking their capabilities to a new level, by assisting them in most of the works in the most efficient manner.
The day Mark Zuckerberg will become successful in efforts towards his new resolution, the technology surely will get a new high. Then, the artificially intelligent machines will not remain limited to only mechanical works, but it will start contributing majorly in domestic tasks as well.
At present AI machines are able to do voice recognition, they can also understand commands and respond accordingly, but a recent innovation revealed that soon it will be possible to download anybody’s personality traits in an artificially intelligent robot, such as behavior and responses based on personalities of real world people. The robot personality may also be modifiable within a base personality construct.
New technologies keep on evolving constantly that improve the lives of humans, Artificial Intelligence is also one among them that is rising rapidly. Time has come that we should start using this technology in our daily lives that will help in simplifying the complications to a great extent.
