Day by day algorithms are increasing, and the AI is getting smarter and more capable.

Development of AI can be a solution for most of the social issues but misuse of AI should be

very serious. We, humans, control the earth. This does not mean that we are the fastest or we are

the most powerful species on earth. If the smartest controls the Earth, does it mean one-day AI

robots will control us? Do we program AI robots to be smarter than humans? Machines,

computers, and algorithms are helping to make our life easier and simpler day by day. In

addition, we are developing AI faster than ever. Scientists are worried about AI because it can

get smarter, faster and more powerful than humans if we program AI to be self-aware. AI should

continue developing; maybe AI is the only way to find new planets, check the Wormholes, Black

Holes and clean Earth’s pollution.

Basically, AI is software with a bunch of complex codes and algorithms written by high-

level programmers. AI can be autonomous and semi-autonomous. People think AI is

superintelligence robots which can stand against humans. Unfortunately, AI is not at that level

yet, but it is developing faster than ever. Google can be a good example of AI. In several

seconds it shows you millions of results for one word. The Google Company created Google

home which speaks with several kinds of voice, and it finds the right information, also it can

translate to several languages. You can ask your google home anything; even it can make a

phone call for you and talk with places to make an appointment for you. It is fully autonomous

AI and no one has control over it.

Semi-autonomous AI is a device or software which man can activate or deactivate. Tesla

cars are a good example of the semi-autonomous machine. These cars have a bunch of sensors

and software which can drive the car but the driver has control on it all the time. Every year

Tesla is upgrading its semi-autonomous program and the company is trying to make it safest as

they can to the public. Also, there are levels of semi-autonomous software which is an option for

a man to choose. Soon we may have fully automated cars which do everything by itself and they

can be in the category of AI.

AI is a good source of information in a lot of ways. Google is a simple AI which capable

of many things. It has all kind of information and day by day it is earning more skill. It is able to

show you any kind of information, pictures, videos and etc. You can ask it to show you the

directions, play music, make orders, search for a specific location or specific information.

Several months ago Google Company announced that Google homes can make phone calls and

talk instead of humans. Now Google is only software and can you imagine that one day google

have an actual body and it turns to intelligent AI robot like Sofia. Sofia is one of the intelligent

robots we have today, which talks and acts like humans. When Sofia made her public appearance

for the first time in 2016 it had the only head but today in 2018 she has body and senses. Also,

she has AI visual data processing and facial recognition function which can recognize an actual

human face. When people see Sofia they realize how accurate she is. Being smarter and faster is

the reality about AI. Self-aware and intelligent robots which we saw in movies are a little bit far

away. If they become self-aware are they going to have over control of humans because they are

NASA is doing it is best to find life out there in space. The researchers and scientists are

sending AI robots to other planets for exploring, analyzing, and other important missions (NASA

is sending a robot to Mars). These AI robots are finishing their missions successfully. We have

satellites and space telescopes, which work with the help of AI, and they are doing their jobs

perfectly. Overall these AI technologies are making scientists and researchers job faster and

easier. In addition, there are new planets, Wormholes, and Dark holes which we want to explore

and see if that life is possible out there or not. It is hard for the man to go to these explorations

and missions because of the conditions out there. However, if we have AI super robots maybe it

will be easier than we think.

Government militaries trying to build an AI weapon which sounds horrific. AI Drones

which exist today are being used by USA military can reach the target with no help of humans.

Some of AI drones can recognize a bad guy and shoot. New York Times published that “Israel

is using an air-defense system which can detect any kind of rockets and destroy it. Also in the

border of South and North Korea, autonomous equipment are being used to detect any kind of

movements and probably destroy them.” What happens if these weapons reach to the group of

bad people? Who are guilty if these AI machines kill innocent people? As the representative of

Austria Thomas Hajnoczi said, “You are delegating the decision to kill to a machine but a

machine does not have any kind of moral judgment or mercy.”

The number of people, factories, and machines are increasing but they are making the

pollutions as well. Water pollution is increasing and the ocean animals dying, also the level of

CO2 is increasing that trees cannot help to balance it anymore. The population is increasing but

Earth cannot provide people with enough food. However, AI can to Earth to live longer. How?

We can build AI which floats in the ocean and it cleans water from plastic materials. We can

clean up the atmosphere with the help AI technology and grow food easily. It is very difficult

problems to solve but with the help of AI is not. Maybe it is the only way mankind can survive

on Earth.

There is a possibility that AI can be self-aware. Whenever AI starts to think, train itself

and write algorithms for itself to function than humans are probably in trouble. As the author

Arend Hintze, computer science and engineer professor said:

Fortunately, we need not justify our existence quite yet. We have some time – somewhere

between 50 and 250 years, depending on how fast AI develops. As a species, we can

come together and come up with a good answer for why superintelligence should not just

wipe us out. However, that will be hard: Saying we embrace diversity and actually doing

it are two different things – as are saying we want to save the planet and successfully

doing so (What an Artificial Intelligence Researcher Fears about).

The reason AI matter is simple. Already we have huge issues on earth. The only way to

keep the environment clean, make people safe, and explore new planets, is with the help of AI.

The future of our generations is going to be AI. Let us use them to accomplish to good things and

just make them efficient for people.
