It will not be long when we recognize Artificial Intelligence and Humanoid Robots as a part of our society. We are moving towards creating more social robots that teach themselves in other words, they learn from each conversation that they have, each action they perform.
Sophia [Humanoid Robot ]
Sophia is a humanoid robot. But unlike most of the other robots who just have some lame screen instead of a face, Sophia has the ability to give different expressions. On October 11, 2017, Sophia was presented with Saudi Arabia Citizenship, that makes her special.
What is Artificial Intelligence?
As defined by Google –
the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.
The Growth of Artificial Intelligence
The growth of artificial intelligence is exponential, now that might seem like a merit at first, but if we dive deeper that can be a disaster.
Here are some charts from Forbes
Are we safe from Artificial Intelligence?
The Problem – Yes, It is exponential growth that is the problem, you might think for a while AI will solve our problems but did you ever think of AI taking over the world?
As said by articles of ColdFusion and waitbutwhy.com, It is not about how AI grows but the human’s inability to control the exponential change in AI. People for a long time might consider AI as in its growing phase, but all of a sudden the exponential growth might take us into an uncontrollable situation that we never expected to arrive. This outcome is possible with the ability of AI to self-improve and with each exponential factors things might get worse even before we have an eye on it.
The example of this is Google DeepMind, they achieved something developers believed will at least take a decade or so and, all of a sudden the views towards AI changed for many.
Stephan Hawkings and Elon Musk have shown some reservation towards AI, while some like Paul Ellen believe AI to be a useful resource.

Horrifying things that AI said –
Steps towards Safety –
Axon Launched the first AI Ethics board, and Google is said to have A mysterious Ethics board, as many of you will agree it is necessary to have an Ethics board that might save us from some big disaster. For now, we can just try to predict for the outcomes of tomorrow, rest is the story of tomorrow.
