A well-known futurist in the world of technology, Michael Ludden, expert in artificial intelligence, arrives in Lithuania. November 15 Mobile Baltic Mobile, a virtual reality specialist and complemented at the international mobile economy conference in Vilnius, will tell us how our life will be replaced by a virtual and complemented reality. According to him, they expect very interesting changes.
Muddy Ludden, a technology provider at IBM Watson, Samsung, Google and others, says that today we know artificial intelligence every day and in the next 5 years it will cover all our areas of life.
You are coauthor of several books about transhumanism and supernatural reality. These publications will come soon to bookstores. Who is interested in today's technological innovation?
Nowadays, it is more interesting to observe the effects of artificial intelligence in virtual and complemented realities and how the world we live in, work and study will change. Already, image technology, a virtual and augmented reality, is applicable to education, sport, treatment and security. Therefore, it is my great pleasure to see the unexpected areas of our life in the next decade to embrace this technology and how it will change our everyday lives positively.
Artificial intelligence has the ability to learn and improve. What, in your opinion, is the level you have achieved at this time?
I always say 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 you 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 gamer in the Go's strategy game, but this artificial intelligence will never succeed in affairs of love.
What is the second way?
It's a self-evolving artificial intelligence that you can decide for yourself what you want to do. For example, it's good to play chess, but he decides that he wants to learn to draw, and that's what he's doing well. At present, in the world, we have many examples of close artificial intelligence, but we still do not have any second type. Unfortunately, we are still far from it and it is still difficult to predict when artificial intelligence will reach a higher level.
Skeptics fear that a virtual reality eliminates their work from people. Can this happen?
If we look at the story, we see that people always feared that technology took its place and removed its work. But, on the contrary, experience shows that they help to do the job in a faster, easier and more efficient way. Millions of years ago, people built pyramids and stone wings, and now builders can handle large machines that facilitate their work. Thanks to artificial intelligence, people will no longer have to enter data in the Excel program tables or do other better digital work done by the devices. People will not disappear, you will simply manage these processes.
What, in your opinion, can you still expect artificial intelligence after 5 years?
In the five year perspective, there will be no area in which artificial intelligence will not be applied. Everything: from medicine to games, from business to marketing, will inevitably be affected by artificial intelligence. I think it will not take five years, when artificial intelligence will become a routine in our everyday life.
