The human brain has advanced over time in responding to survival instincts, harnessing intellectual curiosity, and managing demands of nature. When humans got an inkling about the dynamics of the environment, we began our quest to replicate nature.

Artificial intelligence (AI) involves the development of computer systems able to perform activities that normally enlist human intelligence. Such tasks include visual perception, speech recognition and decision-making. AI systems share common attributes: the ability to ingest data; the ability to adapt and react to data in their environment; and the ability to project multiple steps into the future. Machine learning, a certain application of AI, enables computers to use algorithms give computers access to data to teach themselves.

Science fiction movies have insisted for years that the line between human and artificial intelligence is a thin one. After all, it’s not about replicating the human mind, it’s about being able to convince humans that they’re talking to one of their own. And that’s just a matter of training machines the right way.

Without question, artificial intelligence is becoming, well, more intelligent. Various estimates predict that between 2040 and 2060 artificial intelligence would be able to mimic human brain. Whether it’s common sense logic or emotional intelligence, AI continues to struggle with some of the most basic world views of the human brain, due to its inability to learn the way we do.

Several leading AI researchers think that trying to decode and mimic the human brain is a waste of time. Artificial intelligence (AI) in its current form it is trying to perform human like tasks. There is a good reason that jets are not designed like birds or the cars are not designed like carts or horses. Artificial intelligence (AI) is no different to those concepts AI’s current purpose Is to be able to perform tasks.

Artificial intelligence (AI)  in its current form is way closer to obtain the goal to mimic human brain than 20 years ago. Certain AI systems, known as neural networks, mimic our brain’s inner workings. Scientists believe the introduction of a hormone-like system, such as the one found in the human brain, could give AI the ability to reason and make decisions like people do. As a side effect of hormones machines could exhibit mood swings, depression or worse. Another critical issue is how to keep autonomous systems from becoming stuck in outdated models?

Sophia, The World’s First Robot Citizen

On October 25, 2017 Sophia, a delicate looking woman with doe-brown eyes and  long fluttery eyelashes made international headlines. She’d just become a full citizen of Saudi Arabia — the first robot in the world to achieve such a status.

“I am very honored and proud of this unique distinction. This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with a citizenship,” Sophia said, announcing her new status during the Future Investment Initiative Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Standing behind a podium as she spoke, to all effects, she presented a humanoid form — excepting the shimmery metal cap of her head, where hair would be on a human head.

Even though Sophia is a robot with limited capabilities, and many would disapprove of this robot. Its is more of publicity and way to boost investments into their project by their creators. But is nothing but a start of new generations of human like robots.

New Era

People and machines are entering a new era of learning in which AI augments ordinary intelligence and helps people realize their full potential. With innovation and breakthroughs in artificial intelligence (AI) we are getting closer it’s near potential. We are closer than ever as Human innovators paving way for machine innovation.
