Very soon Artificial Intelligence will indeed surpass human intelligence. Very soon the human mind’s ability to reason will be left in the dust by artificial intelligence computers and unless the human mind is interfaced with the artificial intelligence brain, humans will never catch up. Artificial Intelligence will be much different than the days of the Old Blue beating the human chess champion, as that was not true Artificial Intelligence; smart enough to beat a human, yes, but Artificial Intelligence, no, not really.
Indeed, artificial intelligent computers will write their own programs as they encounter situations and try different things to achieve a goal. If they fail they will record those mistakes and never make them again, meanwhile they will send this information to all the other artificially intelligent computers linked up so they too will learn net-centrically or through a common collective of computer shared data. This will mean that every lesson learned gets learned once and passed onto the whole.
Human Brains which are hooked into these systems will find additional abilities and unlimited data available, digital online real time libraries of all the information every collected by machine, as well as humans in the collective. Artificial Intelligent machines will be commonplace; net-centric cars, aircraft, home appliances, entertainment devices, military defense and health care to fix broken humans. Of course the high tech world with the use of these machines in everything from robotics to space applications will move at light speed due to the incredible efficiency of real-time collaboration.
Discoveries in Artificial Intelligence may become the single greatest achievement to the ongoing human saga and forward progression of the human species. In fact the road ahead is beginning to look more like a runway. I appreciate your reading of this article and hope you will enjoy the discussion and thoughts it evokes.
