Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is the technology that involves computers and machines displaying it’s own intelligence. The practical uses for computers making their own decisions is a very important technology to develop, because this would allow the deployment of robots in environments too harsh for humans to brave, such as other planets, or even war zones. While artificial intelligence is a very good idea, true human intelligence will be very difficult to reach. While a computer could have the ability to assess situations and communicate like a human, it would never be able to use common sense or reasoning the same as a human, such as knowing why not to put your hand in a fire. It would also be near impossible to program a computer to use it’s decision making to form it’s own opinions and values as a human can.
Examples of where artificial intelligence can be applied is in self-driving cars. By developing a computer’s ability to make it’s own decisions, self-driving cars could become a viable and common technology. This technology is very important as it removes the factor of human error in driving, which in turn could decrease car crashes or potentially eliminate them.
The Turing Test
The Turing Test is a test in which artificial intelligence is put through rigors by humans to determine whether a computer can trick a person into thinking they are also human. It was made by a man called Alan Turing, who decided that if a computer could fool a human into…
