The Rise of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is an ever evolving goal for researchers, and the object of
endless fascination for writers, filmmakers, and the general public. But despite
our best science fiction visions, creating digital intelligence is incredibly
difficult. The universe is a very complicated place, and humans have had
millions of years to evolve the ability to navigate and make sense of it.
Contemporary attempts to create AI have us looking more at how our own
brains work to see how a computer could simulate the core activities that
create our intelligence. No matter how we get there, it is certain that artificial
intelligence will have tremendous impact on our society and economy, and lead us down a path towards evolving our own definitions of humanity.
