It is not so easy to have a artificial intelligence computer system respond and act with human precision and sense of judgement that only our mankind possess. Although you do have an A.I. system like Siri on your finger-tips, you will still question the sanity and future of a potentially humanoid software that can make decisions of your own. Although the concept of A.I. taking over mankind has been well explored in movies like Terminator and Avengers : Age Of Ultron, the developments in the modern science suggest that we are far from done with our love for A.I.
It does not come as a surprise that even the likes of Stephen Hawking have clearly stated that there will come a time when artificial intelligence will take over our human society. But are we warned ?? Samsung has recently announced the presence of an “intuitive A.I.” in their smartphone system which can respond to user’s habits and preferences and act accordingly. There is no question to the fact that the virtual informations networks are much more sophisticated and potent that human’s ability to store memory and replicate. Take for example the internet, a search engine like google can be credited as a master mind server which can answer about anything at human disposal.
So how about your tablets and smartphones ?? They already keep a tab at what you do, don’t they ?? How about a system that can access all you information through cloud computing and pretend to help you. But the problem here is, most of the software bots are programs and coding, and they do not posses an intention of their own.
What separates a bacteria from a sodium particle ?? Yes, D.N.A. Your DNA is the single defining element which separates living from the non-living. It is the blue-print for life. But do humans come with a conscience of what is right and wrong ?? Not necessarily ! Maybe machines can learn to replicate subtle things like a mechanical hand learning to do things, but we are yet to develop systems that can replicate human emotions ! Gotcha, we are more often than not servants of our own emotions.

Feelings like joy, hope, sadness is what makes us come alive. Humans have learned to find companionship in their humanoid counterparts, where they are used in various industries. And with every coming day, the virtual presence gets stronger than our physical reality. The growth is tremendous. The only question is we do not let the artificial intelligence systems overpower our own sense of self.
How about a system that can assimilate as much information as a human brain and what will happen if it feels for things too ?? Just imagine, you wake up and you gmail account denies you access ?? Have you ever tackled a moody Siri ?? What if some scientist who is totally dependent on an A.I. system dies and the virtual system takes decision on their own ?? It can block databases, access machines and hopefully even drive humanless cars. The possibilities are endless. But the gist of it remains, that technology and artificial intelligence are only a reflection of human consciousness. And are we headed to that phase ?? Maybe someday we can answer that.
