This article is about my views on The Evolution of Artificial intelligence explained in simple words.
The first thing which comes in your mind when you hear about AI is that robot’s thinking, speaking, and acting more like humans do.
This leads to another major question, whether AI can outperform human intelligence? If it does, what will be the future of humanity?
‘Will AI be the Best or the worse thing, humans can ever dream of? ‘

What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial intelligence is like a program through which, a computer can learn, think, and act according to the situation by itself like a human.
More precisely, it’s a brain that is created artificially (faster and can hold more data than the human brain).
This means, a computer or a software which can learn from the data provided by its creator, learn from its surrounding over a new data, think/act and improve by itself over time.
There are many more aspects of artificial intelligence like machine learning, deep learning, neural networks, algorithm evolution, etc..
Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence. It is an algorithm or method which gathers data, checks out for any patterns, similarities, predictions and returns the output in large data.
Deep learning and Neural network
Have you ever imagined how Google, Facebook, Amazon… gives you the information or the data which you like or prefer to see?
This is executed by the huge amount of data that they have collected by user base which is now called ‘Big data‘, these data are not indexed, not categorized and not structured. Here Deep learning plays a major role by identifying the similarities in data in images, text, videos, etc. and upgrade over time by learning itself. An example of real-world deep learning is facial recognition.

Now, Lets talk about the concerns related to Artificial Intelligence in Future
What will happen if the computer becomes self-aware and understand human thoughts, emotions?
What happens if AI doesn’t limit its intelligence and surpasses human?
This is a serious issue which we will face in the future, and I am not talking about 30- 50 years. In 5-10 years we will be so close in creating a full-fledged AI system that can do a lot which humans wouldn’t even think of. Presently, AI plays a major role in our living which we are not even aware of like AI assistants like Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa, and more which are learning from human behavior, data and developing itself to perform better and control our living.
Let’s take an example you search some services or article on a particular topic like Netflix, now you might notice whenever you search for something else it recommends the similar topic related to Netflix. Lets us consider you watch a comedy video on YouTube now, After a while YouTube recommends you with the similar kind of videos that you might be most likely to watch. this is were Artificial intelligence and machine learning plays a vital role in huge organizations.
AI and Machine learning also helps out in product management and advertisement of most recommended product which users may most likely to buy. Whereas this method can help us in analyzing user data and improve the business.
In this case, we are not talking about this type of Artificial intelligence which is helping us but the dangerous ones.
Artificial Intelligence which can cause trouble and destruction in the future are not present around us at least for now, but most likely be there in the future around 50 years from the present time or it might be earlier than our expectation like 10 yrs, we can’t tell.
Looking at this rapid explosion in artificial intelligence and technology in the last fifty years, the graph has skyrocketed. We were able to improve so much in this 40-50 years, that was impossible for last 300-500 years.
Most of the well-known experts like Stephen Hawking’s, Elon musk speaks about the Artificial intelligence to be the End of Mankind or can be the Last invention humans ever made, This could be the biggest fear in the world.
If we lose control of computers, it could be the end. because if a computer can develop its own language and can speak with other computers anonymously without the notice of their creators. This can result in a highly advanced AI system that can never be controlled by mankind.
If Artificial intelligence succeeds in surpassing our intelligence, there will be no way of stopping it after that, because the speed, capacity, and power at which they work would be indefinite times greater than humans.
If humans transfer data through neurons, the speed of communication is 400km/hr. when compared to computers the speed of processing is approximately equal to the speed of light i.e. 300000km/sec. Check out the difference in speed. Now you should understand what are machines capable of doing in the future.
Currently Artificial intelligence is inside a boundary and follows the instructions which are given by us, this could lead us to an amazing future, just like science fiction movies, tony stark.
But, what happens if AI strikes out of that boundary or becomes at least 1% intelligent than humans?
The Answer is: It will lead to Singularity (A state at which machines gain more intelligence than humans, the creator); but humans don’t know the exact answer yet.
Most of the researchers and scientists have stated many theories, in which any of these two are most reliable to happen during the state of singularity. (This is completely based on Predictions)
CASE 1: Humans will be extinct, computers will rule the world.
CASE 2: Humans might be immortal.
There are always two possibilities in everything either AI can be good or bad in the future which depends completely on us, The Humans. robots can also be categorized like good and bad robots which can lead to different futures.
Case 2 can occur only when artificial intelligence goes on the right track in the development of technology, environment, and human disabilities.
What can humans do to always have greater intelligence than AI robots, there is also a solution to it, in the present which is under development and research i.e. Human memory implantation into robots and Neural network (control robots/ computers using neurons).

Artificial intelligence examples
- Sophia: World’s first advanced AI robot to get the citizenship of Saudi Arabia. Sophia was made by Hanson Robotics of Hong Kong. It is quite famous, it can speak to you with over 62 different expressions and has a capability of emotion recognition, at least not like human presently. Its goal is to make the world a better and peaceful place for humans and robots.
- Deep face recognition: This is the world’s best face recognition engine, developed by Facebook research team. It can recognize a human face with 97.53% accuracy which is even better than the sight of a human being.
- Google Assistant: Most of the users might be familiar with the AI assistant we use in our smart devices like Siri, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa. Due to the rapid development of google AI, google assistant emerged to be the best AI implemented assistant because it has more understanding, learning and answering capabilities.
Check out Google duplex, a human-like interaction made by a machine which is so good not even humans can make out the difference.
- Self-driving cars: These cars completely automated. users input some major information like destination, route, etc. Everything else is done by the car itself, it gathers the data associated with the route, connects to the network nearby, it also gets connected to the surrounding devices to ensure data protection and user safety. Here Artificial intelligence update should never be compromised because it plays a critical role in obstacles and interruptions to ensure user safety.
- IoT devices integrated with AI: Have you ever imagined a world where all devices are integrated and sync with others through the internet? This can be a reality, if all the smart devices like smartphones, wearables, smart glasses, washing machine, refrigerators, cars, not only that your complete home is in sync to a network, then what would be the result?
Everything would be automated and make our life easy. This is one of the best use of AI in the present scenario, but this can also result in privacy issues.
There are many more applications of AI like Speech recognition, Cyberdefense AI facility, analytics, robotics, neurobiology, etc..
Here are some of the top companies in the development of artificial intelligence
- Apple Inc.
- Microsoft Corp.
Artificial Intelligence will surely be the greatest invention, mankind has ever made. Don’t worry, our present AI technology has not reached a level of AI like Skynet and will not cause any threats, as promised by most researchers. To prevent the scenario of robots ruling the future, we have two choices either create machines that understand human emotions or memory implantation which can be used for controlling AI robots.
