Technological Advancement Through Artificial Intelligence: Redefining the Future
Can we ever build an Artificial Intelligence that is close to the human mind? For years, scientists have been trying to develop a computing system that aims to mimic the power of the human brain. We have more than 100 trillion neurons, or electrically conducting cells in our brain. These give us the incredible computing power for which we are known. Computers can do things like multiply 134,341 by 989,999 well, but they can’t do things like recognise human faces or learn or change their understanding of the world. At least not yet, and that’s the goal of AI: to devise a computer system that can acquire and process images and otherwise be human-like.
In all our computers, there is a very powerful core, but then you have a long queue of tasks which come in sequentially and processed sequentially. As for our brain, the computation of units, which are the neurons, are connected in a highly parallel manner. It’s this high-level parallelism that has advantages in learning and recognition. So it’s the parallelism in the brain that allows us to use what we need just when we need it, and to not waste energy on running background processes that we all know slow down our computing power.
Re-engineer the Computer
The plan today is to re-engineer the computer from the ground up and build a network from within. Future computers will have the capacity to calculate non-arbitrary, low-voltage decisions through a few cores that we see today. Experts deem that these advancements would be capable of directing circuits of messages as the brain does. Until recently, this was a theoretical concept because there was no way to send as much information in a single transmission as we have now. So, artificial intelligence is the only incredibly brilliant measure that could be closer to reality.
Creating a Radical New Computing Paradigm
Scientists may be on the verge of creating a radical new computing paradigm, one that uses hardware that simultaneously stores and processes information – not unlike networks of neurons in the brain. Brainbox computing chips may just be the future, as it:
- create machine minds that can parse rich streams of data in real time
- spot patterns that elude us
- learn without any help from humans
This chip may soon be in all laptops, smartphones, table; you name it. These machine minds will be able to think on their own and process information similar to how a human brain does it. The brain box is a revolution of the future. Though it’s still in its initial stages, it can soon process vast streams of data in real time.
