When the earth began there was no life, it was a world of fire and oceans of lava, after thousands of year’s life began in the ocean and soon came onto land. The land creatures developed into dinosaurs which ruled the world for thousands of years until a meteor wiped them out and a great ice age came. Once the ice age ended monkeys came and from them humans. We have been around for two thousand years and now we have created artificial intelligence which is becoming more and more integrated into our ever increasingly complicated world to make it simpler but have humans also created the next cycle of evolution? The AI Revolution is on by Steven Levy is about Artificial intelligence (AI). Levy writes about how the AI came around and how it affects our daily life. Levy explains impeccably how its developers strayed away from imitating human intelligence, and how it is integrated into our society. Levy has been reporting on digital technology for over twenty five years and his articles have been published in many distinguished magazines according to Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum. Levy’s article begins by talking about how robots are used in ware houses that are linked to a main computer that tells the robots what they need to get. The ware house is organized in small groups of products spread out threw out it, this way the robots don’t have to travel as far to get the product but to a human it looks like a random pile or stuff that isn’t sorted at all.

When someone brings up the term “artificial intelligence”, a variety of connotations tend to arise, connotations that often are unfair or unrepresentative of the true real-world applications of such a term. Due to the incidentally fear-mongering nature of the media, artificial intelligence can refer to something as basic as a robotic arm in a factory, as well as the implied extinction and/or enslavement of the human race as caused by robo-revolution. As of today, however, when applied in the world of modern technology, artificial intelligence is defined as any innovation that performs a task usually completed by humans. Of course, with this definition, artificial intelligence holds the potential for both societal harm and benefit, and its fate
Furthermore, I will not rule out the possibility that artificial intelligence will someday be possible, as we use several technologies today that were once believed to be impossible. Also, according to the director of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT, Rodney (1990), it is not a question of if they can, but rather when they will build self-reproducing intelligent robots. However, even if mankind can create artificial intelligence, the robots will be unable to create their own worldview as humans, as they will be subject to the software developer’s programming and they will have no soul. In conclusion, I would address this area with utmost caution and reverence, for, as Scripture says, mankind was "…fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalms 139:14 NIV).
A revolution is a dramatic and wide-reaching change in the way something works or is organized or in people 's ideas about it. Mankind has experienced three life changing revolutions that Yuval Noah Harari discusses in his book Sapiens. There has been a cognitive, an agricultural, and a scientific revolution, and now Nick Bostrom explores in his book, Superintelligence, how life would advance with a fourth one, a transhuman revolution. Finding the right path to artificial intelligence (AI) will lead to advancements for humankind that in relation to the past three revolutions could result in the start of a new journey, or in the end of the life humans now know.
First in the begin in Frankenstein and Blade Runner you are introduce to the thing of artificial intelligence that is created by different things of creating monster by using body parts or programming. Even though it can have a big part in creating new life do you think it is responsible for us to create more people from being to populate our cities and towns.
Society today is greatly influenced by technology and the impact it has had within the past 20 years. One of the largest breakthroughs, though, is Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). The technology associated with A.I. has greatly developed in the past years, and is only making devices smarter. When someone mentions technology, or even the technological breakthroughs the world has gone through recently, many people go straight to smartphones and computers. A.I. is often overlooked, or put into a general category of "technology". Yet, artificial intelligence is something that should we not be so quick to dismiss, and should be something that gets people talking and even excited for what the future holds.
In the excerpt from “The AI Revolution Is On,” Steven Levy addresses the subject of the contrast between robots and humans. An example of a company warehouse was given in order to explain how the setup for robot workers differs from that of human workers. Instead of grouping together like items and putting them in the same area of the warehouse, robots require these items to be dispersed in separate places throughout the building. This allows them to fill one order by “simply find[ing] the closest requested item” (Levy 209). To a human, this may seem like an illogical solution to the interior design of a warehouse.
A question that is asked by nearly all of us: what accumulates the human species. By my definition, a human is a mortal mammal that has the ability to think, feel, and react, as they desire; furthermore, nearly all feel the urge of acceptance and compassion. "Marvin Minsky, artificial intelligence pioneer: We do something other species can’t: We remember. We have cultures, ways of transmitting information" (Wired.com). Specifically, Minsky is indicating that being a human means we can transmit information, for example, expressing our emotions. We each react to our heartache and our bliss in different fashions. Moreover, we all have unique qualities that separate one another. A couple stories from The Writer 's Presence, clearly
When the human emerges, their perceptions enable the brain to function automatically, by coding their obtained information. Hence, after birth infants instantaneously enter the endless cycle of learning. Despite being born a human, what truly makes us superior is our ability to learn, and function within society, after viewing Alex Garland’s Ex Machina, the film confirms that artificial intelligence (AI), can obtain knowledge, learn from it, and act like humans. On a side note, Alex Turing, developer of the Turing Test: a test that analyzes people who are virtually detecting if they are talking to machines or humans; he once wrote: “If a machine behaves as intelligently as a human being, then it is as intelligent as a human being” (Crevier
Jump forward 40 years in film history to 1968 to look at another film featuring artificial intelligence. 2001: A Space Odyssey, after all, is about evolution. Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick and famous science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke wrote the screenplay to 2001 jointly (as well as the novelization) with human evolution in mind and, naturally, artifical intelligence comes into
Humans and technology have existed since the the creation of the first stone tools. Those simple tools served only as instruments for their creators and would only and could only do what we, humans, made them do. Today are technology is more advanced than the technology of our ancestors. We now have artificial intelligence and other robots that can do things that we do and some even do it better. Every year our computers and manufacturing systems get more and more advanced, and rises the question: Will we create an AI smart enough to become self aware, what will happen? A good answer to this question can be found in the story “Who can Replace Man?” by Brian Aldiss.
Over the years we have grown from microscopic organisms to a species with superior mental development, articulated speech and have even managed to spread ourselves across Earth. We have done what was previously thought impossible by being able to edit our own genetics and even program robots to do simple everyday tasks for us. The real question is what is our next step, every step of evolution so far from australopithecus to our current form of humans we have advanced and grown to become a smarter version of our previous selves and in doing so eliminated multiple competing species. To advance from our current beings we most likely have three options. Those options include changing our own DNA enough( both overall population and in the amount of change) that we are turned into a new species or we could be replaced/ overthrown by a new generation of artificial intelligence that is smarter than us. The last option is mass extinction by either a worldwide natural disaster or the process of exhausting
Humans have faced many challenges in their time and many of these challenges threatened the very survival of the species itself. However, some way or another, humans have always found a way to evolve and adapt to overcome such challenges. And now, as Jamais Cascio puts it, we no longer have to rely on natural evolution to make us smart enough to survive because we humans have created various technologies to boost our intelligence (Cascio, 2009).
The production of technology has come a long way over the past few decades and is changing everything society knows. New advances in technology and artificial intelligence have been implemented all over the world, and it is becoming more and more evident every day. The consequences are becoming apparent, and yet societies continue to focus their attention primarily on new inventions and improvements to various forms of technology. There are common misconceptions when it comes to developing advanced technology and artificial intelligence. The topic is highly controversial as society must decide whether the production of artificial intelligence be accelerated or delayed. Additionally, how much should the government be involved in regulating artificial intelligence production. Society is already beginning to experience detrimental consequences as production continues to advance beyond control. Technology changes us and causes us to act more selfishly and ignore the harms that come with these advances. This idea is relevant not only in society today, but additionally in the works of The Veldt by Ray Bradbury and The Gernsback Continuum by William Gibson. When it comes to the debate on whether to accelerate or delay the production of artificial intelligence, the potential harms considerably outweigh the benefits, making it advised to be precautious and delay to prevent society from becoming corrupted by new advances in technology.
Artificial Intelligence is a topic within the public media that has existed for decades, but is now a concern due to the reality of human advancement and innovation in the field of science and technology. Many people believe that computers will become self-aware or sentient and view humanity as a disposable resource and gain supremacy. Reasoning that research on the technology should halt and not become more advance. Whereas others believe they will help catapult research and the economy forward, supporting the operations and innovations the technology offers. The complicated and divided solutions to the debate aren’t obvious, but there are more benefits to improving artificial intelligence than there is stopping it. Therefore, the negative effects people believe will occur can be resolved.
What is evolution? The term ‘evolution’ is defined in the Websters Dictionary as “the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.” When it comes to how we have progressed to a much more complex form in technology in general, the growth is nothing short of outstanding. I remember when I was in awe when I viewed the first flat-screen television in a mall, or seeing how cell phone pagers have evolved to cell phones so small they can fit inside of your pocket as well as surf the internet while purchasing items, selling items, home care and literally almost any subject you can think of technology and the growth of technology has tapped into the market. We are living in an information age where every business sector is becoming digitized; this can be a truly exciting or scary time depending on how you view technology.
