Artificial intelligence (AI) can be defined as highly intelligent machines built by humans that can reason, learn, perceive, feel and behave just like humans.
AI is expected to display a variety of complex set of abilities akin to human intelligence, such as perception, learning, problem solving, reasoning and a dynamic understanding of language.
Computers have made calculations easy and accurate. With advanced AI, our chances of committing errors can turn zero, and we able to have greater accuracy.
Robots can help in various industries, such as mining, driving, space exploration and more.
However, a very important discussion in the field of AI is the danger of we trying to substitute human beings with robots, e.g. in teaching, hospitality, health care related humane services.
A bigger ethical dilemma viz. AI is that if robots start replacing humans in every work field, it will soon result in mass unemployment, leaving real humans jobless, foodless, moneyless.
Cloning is another majorly debated AI issue that asks “Is it ethical to create an artificial copy of a human person?”
With technology booming, AI have been part of our lives in milder versions, such as computers, smartphones, self-drive cars and more. But how far can we extend this experiment with creating artificial human like intelligence remains a huge debate worldwide.
