A futurist known in the world of technology, Michael Ludden, an artificial intelligence specialist, arrives in Lithuania. November 15 The Baltic Mobile Congress, a specialist in virtual and supplementary reality at the international conference on mobile economy in Vilnius, will tell you how our life will be replaced by a virtual and supplemented reality. According to him, very interesting changes await us.
Muddy Ludden, a technology supplier from IBM Watson, Samsung, Google and others, says that today we find artificial intelligence every day, and in the next 5 years will cover all our areas of life.
You are co-authors of several books on transhumanism and supernatural reality. These publications will soon reach the bookstores. Who are you most interested in today's technological innovation?
Today, it is very interesting to observe the effects of artificial intelligence on virtual and supplementary realities and how that will change the world in which we live, work and study. Already image technology, a virtual reality and augmented, is applicable to education, sports, treatment and security. It is therefore my great pleasure to watch the unexpected areas of our life in the next decade to embrace this technology and how it will positively change our daily lives.
Artificial intelligence has the ability to learn and improve. What, in your opinion, is the level he reached at this time?
I always say that there are two ways of speaking and evaluating artificial intelligence. First of all, there is a close artificial intelligence that performs certain things very well but can not make the decision to study and develop independently in other fields. For example, scientists can teach such artificial intelligence to defeat the best strategy player in the world, Go, but this artificial intelligence will never succeed in love affairs.
What is the second path?
It is a self-evolving artificial intelligence that can decide for itself what you want to do. For example, he is good at playing chess, but he himself decides he wants to learn to draw, and that is what he is doing well. Currently, in the world, we have many examples of close artificial intelligence, but we do not have any second type yet. Unfortunately, we are still very far from it, and it is still difficult to predict when artificial intelligence will reach a higher level.
Skeptics fear that a virtual reality will take their work away from people. This can happen?
If we look at history, we see that people have always feared that technology would take its place and take its work. But, on the contrary, experience shows that they help to get the job done faster, easier and more efficiently. Millions of years ago, people built pyramids and stone wings, and today builders can handle huge machines that make their job easier. Thanks to artificial intelligence, people will no longer need to enter data into Excel program tables or perform other digital tasks better performed by the devices. People will not leave, they will simply manage these processes.
What, in your opinion, can still be expected from artificial intelligence after 5 years?
From the perspective of five years, there will be no area where artificial intelligence is not applied. Everything from medicine to gaming, from business to marketing – will inevitably be affected by artificial intelligence. I think it will not take five years to come, when artificial intelligence will become a routine in our everyday lives.
