When it comes to making predictions about Artificial Intelligence, few people have been able to anticipate and accurately predict what will happen. Some have gone too far and believed we could do things we really can’t while others have predicted things that were far too modest.

Ever tried to install a calculator app and been asked to grant it access to your smartphone’s camera, microphone, location, contact list, email, etc, etc, etc? Have you felt the app doesn’t really need to violate your privacy so thoroughly? Have you had a chance to argue your point with its makers?

Intelligent machines are taking over the world, whether we’d like to admit it. Your smartphone likely has a built-in virtual assistant; we see the growth of self-driving cars – these are just some of the many examples where artificial intelligence is making its way into our daily lives.

In a previous post I discussed the underlying philosophy of AI and our limited and inconstant definition of it. In this post I will touch on the brief period in the history of the art when we were intoxicated with pride in our achievements.

The time is coming where humans will start to explore the deeper reaches of space on a much more consistent level. NASA has already used unmanned shuttles, probes, rovers, and exploratory ships to find out more information about galaxies near and far. We have found out more about the size, scope, and shape of the universe because of technological advancements. Now, AI is going to help us do even more.
In today’s world of artificial intelligence, some are working extremely hard to push the envelope and create the advanced world we live in. These influencers are contributing greatly to technology innovation, with incredible brains to see something and imagine what it could be instead of just settling on our current state of being.

Caring for the terminally ill can be hard. It’s often those terminal patients who encounter medical errors or lack of support at the very end of their lives. Whether it is due to lack of resources, being understaffed, or simply an oversight, the end of life shouldn’t be tainted with such experiences.

I am not an AI researcher by any means; on the other hand, I’ve been fascinated by the advancing field of computing since I was in high school in the era of mainframes and punched cards, and I’ve worked and played right in the middle of this field ever since; so I’ve had ample opportunity to give thought to that intriguing yet maddeningly elusive concept, or oxymoron, or design goal: Artificial Intelligence. In this post I attend the origins of the field; in future posts I’ll be looking at what happened next.

It has been discussed in 2017: should artificial intelligence have a seat in our judicial systems? It’s a scary concept for many people, mostly because it is unknown what will come of it. Surely, there are pros and cons to having artificial intelligence in our lives at all, let alone at the crux of our judicial system.
