One of the most exciting developments in recent years is the development of a new computer technology that has the potential to enhance human brain power exponentially. The term for this is artificial intelligence. And with the recent strides in AI research, it’s clear that the future holds more advances than we can imagine.
A computer program, such as Google’s DeepMind, can actually simulate a human brain. It does so by using a series of algorithms and neural networks in an effort to find patterns in large sets of data. After a series of such algorithms are trained on a wide range of data, the program finds similarities between the data.
When such a system is put to work, a human will be able to play a variety of games online using a virtual environment. These games will not only allow for interaction, but they will also allow humans to do things such as manipulating physical objects, perform simple calculations, and even build a virtual civilization. What’s more, it will also allow for humans to make decisions based on the results of these algorithms, which is just what a human brain is supposed to do.
However, while an artificial intelligent computer has the potential to drastically improve human brain functions, there are still some major questions that have yet to be answered. For example, how will it be able to learn without having to be exposed to the same stimuli as humans? What would happen if it learned too quickly, or if there were no environmental distractions to help it along?
And if the artificial system was somehow able to duplicate human brain function, what would happen to the memory of the user? Will he retain all of the information that was previously stored in his brain, or will he have to start again from scratch?
And because of this, future progress should not be taken lightly. Many people believe that a fully artificial intelligent system could completely replace the human brain in less than 100 years. If you’re wondering how this could happen, then perhaps you should take a look at the way that human brains were used in the past and then try to create artificial systems that will function the same way.
For example, in the past, human beings used a number of tools, including language and tools to communicate, think, and even reason with one another. If you look at the various tools that the first humans used to communicate with each other, it becomes obvious that they were based heavily on visual and auditory and olfactory perception.
And because of this, it stands to reason that if human beings developed a form of visual perception, then they could develop a form of language. This would allow them to communicate through images, which would allow them to share information and thus gain a much greater understanding of the world around them.
Although it is impossible to get around the language in today’s day and age, the fact is that it would be very difficult for someone to completely replicate language without being able to see the pictures themselves. Therefore, it makes sense to use the same tools that humans used for language, and then use those same tools to create artificial computers.
Although it is possible to use visual stimuli to communicate with people, this is a very limited form of communication. In order to really be able to connect with someone, you have to speak in person.
In fact, the best way to communicate verbally is to talk through pictures, and sounds. The visual stimuli doesn’t allow us to communicate in the same level as verbal language.
By using visual stimuli, an artificial system could mimic the brain’s ability to communicate and make use of visual language to communicate with people, but without actually having to make use of words. Therefore, it would allow a machine to learn the language much like a human brain would.
