Edge of Tomorrow (2014) convinced us the alien invasion flick is likely in its wake. There is a long list such of sci-fic movies which over the decade have entertained us with alienation, alien nature and alien intentions and so. Technology augmented for us from entertainment, to overarching aspiration to alienate other planets. Given the milieu of advance technology aliens seems less likely to take over our planet then technology itself. ‘Knowledge based systems’, ‘expert systems’, ‘Machine learning’, ‘Deep learning’ are buzz words all point towards Artificial Intelligence (AI). Artificial intelligence is no longer a dream, it surrounds us right this second in some form.
Smart cars with self-driving and parking systems, digital assistants such as Google and Alexa, media streaming services such as YouTube, Netflix use AI technology for tailoring the feed to your taste, Video games such as PUBG or Fortnite use AI powered bots.
An autonomous driving technology development company named Waymo is a project fuelled by Google Inc successfully demonstrated AI technology with the autonomous car driving through the streets of US following red lights, bypassing obstacles and pedestrians also communicating with surrounding vehicles. Conceptually AI systems aim at implementing human intelligence in machines. Father of AI technology John McCarthy, quotes AI as science of engineering intelligent technology. Mainstream computerized system is incapable of responding to generic inputs. Based on the LISP programming system which uses ‘linked list data structure’ allowing source code manipulation and enabling response to inclusive inputs. It allows intelligent systems using AI to put together independent pieces of information together to achieve program modifications even in the run time.
