Artificial Intelligence Is Becoming More Powerful Each Day, And It's Time We Acknowledge It

Artificial Intelligence is intelligence that is demonstrated by machines that resemble human thoughts.

Artificial Intelligence Is Becoming More Powerful Each Day, And It's Time We Acknowledge It

Artificial intelligence isn't only confined to the sci-fi stigmas of robots, but it is also a component of the average person's lifestyle. The use of artificial intelligence has been integrated into our personal technology through the business world and the government. It is being used in many intuitive ways, but there are also concerns about how this technology could become too powerful.

The use of artificial intelligence has been integrated into everyday life and you probably didn't realize it. One of the most well-known artificial intelligence bots that was integrated into the world of Apple is Siri. Siri has been used as an assistant in all types of ways, ranging from checking the weather, telling the scores to sports games, and even calling anyone on your contact list. Siri is able to complete these tasks through vocal recognition, as well as processing the human language and coming up with a response that is best for the phrase that the user utters. This technology has become part of our lives and it's difficult to imagine a reality without it.

The emergence of artificial intelligence has allowed many to become absent-minded about the stark reality of this technology. A.I. is constantly being improved because it is linked to the internet and social media. Every time someone posts a status update or likes a picture, they have extended the reach of artificial intelligence.

Elon Musk has done a lot of work with artificial intelligence, and even though his business has been able to thrive because of it, he has warned others of the negative effects. Elon Musk said the following about artificial intelligence, in a podcast with Joe Rogan, "We are the biological boot-loader for A.I., we are actively building it, and we are building progressively greater intelligence and the percentage of intelligence that is not human is increasing. Eventually, we will represent a small part of intelligence"

What he is trying to say is that if humans give artificial intelligence too much of the world's information and knowledge, at some point we will have less information than artificial intelligence. In this instance, there could be a switch from biology to technology becoming the catalyst for new ideas. The rise of artificial intelligence is here and our addiction to social media is going to keep building the vast bank of information.

With the rise of artificial intelligence, little has been done by the government to make regulations and businesses have been using these technologies for years without the government's full understanding. Google, who uses image recognition to search through thousands of pictures a day, has been sought out by the Department of Defense to sign a 10 billion dollar contract. Google was going to sign this deal to help in the military technologies but decided to back out due to the concern of using this machine-learning technology for warfare. The government could benefit greatly from using technology in warfare and even in police units. Government agencies using all of this wild technology, however, does come with a price to the people: the cost of their privacy.

Artificial intelligence is a tough thing to regulate due to the use of it in everyday products. I'm not entirely sure what we should expect in the future when it comes to the regulation of this technology since the majority of it is privately owned by powerful tech companies. We will have to wait and see how intelligent artificial intelligence can really become.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
