AI: Blurring the Boundaries between Humans and Machines12th June 2017 - 65 days ago
The term ‘artificial intelligence’ (AI) was first coined by the American computer scientist John McCarthy in 1955. He believed that “every aspect of learning or any other feature of intelligence can in principle be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it.” Software developers are still attempting to achieve his goal.
However, from SIRI to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI) is progressing rapidly. While science fiction often portrays AI as robots with human-like characteristics, AI can encompass anything from Google’s search algorithms to IBM’s Watson to autonomous weapons.
There are a number of individuals specialising in various areas of technology, from those such as Stefan Hyttfors, who focus on disruptive technologies and next generation leadership, to Aric Dromi, the Chief Futurologist at Volvo Group.
Three of the most ground-breaking minds involved in robotics, people who are making the difference both in the business and personal world are Dr Rodney Brooks, a distinguished, Stanford-educated, former MIT Professor of Robotics along with Professor Henrik Schärfe, who is Director at the Center for Computer-Mediated Epistemology. Equally of note is Dr Oren Etzioni is CEO of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
