Since 1956, when Dartmouth College held the first artificial intelligence workshop in its history, artificial intelligence technology has been born and has been developing rapidly. In 1966, MIT's Weiserbaum released the world's first chatbot; in 1997, IBM developed the robot "Deep Blue" to defeat the then chess champion Kasparov in a tournament; in 2000, Japan's Honda made the robot "Asimo", which can more accurately imitate certain human behaviors and move very dexterously; in 2017, Google developed the "AlphaGo" robot to defeat the world Go champion Ke Jie, which shocked the world.
Once upon a time, the idea that artificial intelligence threatened humanity existed, but only in science fiction movies and novels like Her, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, and so on, and was a far-fetched conversation. However, with the rapid development of artificial intelligence technology, some things that previously seemed impossible are slowly becoming reality, such as the virtual robot "Microsoft Ice" designed by the Microsoft Engineering Institute can chat, sing, tell stories and even write poems and comments.
How much of an impact will artificial intelligence actually have on our lives?
A report on artificial intelligence published by a US research group in 2016 gives some answers. When it comes to AI technology, the report warns that within 20 years, AI could put 47 percent of Americans out of work. Research from Oxford University in the UK also shows that intelligent robots will replace 10 million unskilled jobs in the future, including clerks, workers, agents, drivers and a whole host of other positions.
In the future, perhaps AI will become like today's water and electricity, fully entering our various industries and scenarios, including the lives of our most secretive families, from machine translation to face payment, from medical consultation to legal advice, all aspects of our daily life such as clothing, food, housing and transportation will be penetrated by AI, and through AI, the whole society will be reconnected in a new way.
