Artificial intelligence is the type of Intelligence displayed by a machine, mimicking the natural intelligence of human beings. The skills such as learning and problem solving are copied by the machine. The supporters of Dr. B R Ambedkar do believe Humanity Restored, that AI will put an end to issues such as caste biases and eliminate caste system by the year 2030.
As a matter of fact, on the 127th birth anniversary of the iconic leader, the celebration “Artificial Intelligence for Humanity Restored” is expected to be held at the NewYork UN headquarters. Does AI really end social evils?
How it works
AI understands human speech, interprets complex data including videos and images, understands and processes military simulations, routes content delivery networks and so on.
AI is divided into different categories based on technical considerations such as Robotics; machine learning and so on, in terms of goals; tools such as logical networks, neural networks; philosophical works for research purposes. AI derives its knowledge from various sciences such as mathematics, psychology, philosophy, logistics and most importantly computer science.
The anniversary celebration, organized by the Foundation for Human Horizon, is expected to be attended by the expert companies. Deelip Mhaske, representative of the foundation says that the right usage of AI can reduce inequalities and create a safe zone, the AI predication of caste violence by such groups can pave a root to stop such violence as in the western world where ‘crime maps’ or ‘diseases map’ are put to use. He also mentioned IBM prevent racial discrimination efforts, i.e., a research on the use of artificial intelligence termed, ” optimized pre-processing for discrimination”.
Human vs AI
Humans are better at problem-solving and reasoning skills since their solutions are usually intuitive while AI has a step-by-step deduction method. AI’s knowledge and its representation are more logical while human’s knowledge is mostly in the form of working assumptions. AI’s exhibit more common sense than human beings who do not represent facts easily.
Drawbacks of AI
Some consider AI a danger to humanity fearing its indefinite and growing progress. The common challenges placed before AI are reasoning, planning, learning, Language Processing and perception skills and the ability to manipulate different objects.
There’s also a question raised in case of ethics with respect to creating artificial machines gifted with similar nature of human mind. There’s also fear of creating unemployment in large scale as they may take upon humans’ work. They might get dangerous if they are programmed to do something devastating. There is no way to predict how AI behaves. Human civilization developed very slowly in a progressive manner while AI has an ability to design itself to reciprocate more and more and can outlive and outsmart human community.
Benefits for humanity
AI is used everywhere from a smartphone, GPS (Global positioning system), self-driving Cars, controlling peacemakers, power grids and so on. According to the AI experts, the integration would bring in a lot of benefits.
It’ll help with lots of people such as nurses, Pilots, farmers, business owners, physical therapist, and investment bankers and so on. In the future, AI might help humanity restored to eradicate war, poverty, and diseases. It can be used for real-time image recognition helping visually impaired and provide emotional labor to people and they can be used to create captions on websites to help hearing impaired. AI can be used for financial trading services, rational choice, rational expectations, portfolio optimization and counterfactual thinking. It can be used to create artificial neural networks like deep learning, sensor flow, then and torch. They can also reduce the demand for human labor. They can act as artificial moral agents.
Thus with precautionary measures such as supervised security risks of AI, it can benefit human civilization by being a transhuman source.
