High Commission On Science and Technology : Artificial Intelligence (2040)

High Commission On Science and Technology : Artificial Intelligence (2040) 2018-02-20T10:25:25+00:00

In an era where technology and science have been developing rapidly, the eagerness to invent intelligent machines has being flourished accordingly. The technology was finally available and appeared to have been stimulating intelligent behavior, which means the things could be done faster exceeding the human capacity.

Artificial intelligence is the theme of the committee as main argued issue in recent years. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming the nature of almost everything which is connected to human life (e.g. employment, economy, communication, warfare, privacy, security, ethics, healthcare etc.). However, we are yet to see its evolution in long-term, whether it’s leading humanity towards making this planet advanced or a far more chaotic place.

Artificial Intelligence forms a vital branch of computer science, dealing with intelligent behaviours, learning and adaptation in machines. The products which are just the beginning of the future trend are currently designed to perform basic tasks (e.g. speech recognition, learning, planning, problem solving, perception, ability to manipulate and move objects). However, the long-term goal of many researchers is to create “Artificial General Intelligence” (AGI or strong AI). While narrow AI may outperform humans at whatever its specific task is, like playing chess or solving equations, AGI would outperform humans at nearly every cognitive task.

When we consider all facts; scientists, corporate executives, representatives of humanitarian institutions and organizations who are the actual shapers of the world will discuss this issue in the Futurist Science and Technology High Commission: Artificial Intelligence (2050) committee. This issue, which is very much on the agenda in the global world, will be more critical in the future. The delegates will contemplate the effects of artificial intelligence on people, the environment, and the world. We are yet to see if the studies on Artificial Intelligence will open us the gates of a new age, or become a burden to the mankind.

“Will we be proud of our courage or become a victim of our own foolishness?”
