Last year I would have said no. I think that the game has changed dramatically. I am no authority especially since this is such a broad subject with so many companies and universities involved. I write a blog, www.deepeducationweb.com which lightly brushes on Artificial Intelligence, deep learning, machine learning, neural networks etc.
The reason that I am less certain is due to some specific events that have transpired this year.
The first event involved the US Tennis Open and IBM. IBM brought it's creation 'Watson' to the OPEN.
The second event involves Google and it's creations Deep Mind, Alphago and Alphago Zero.
Less well known are the scientists that are developing Hydrogen Fuel from sea water, and other remarkable things that we civilians will be absolutely astounded by when they come to light.
I just used my 2500 words without getting to the end of my story. So here is an abbreviated version. Zero used no human input to learn the game and in three days beat the GO version. Three days to learn without human input.
Imagine! China imported 90,000 robots. China is investing in computing at many times the rate that the US is. (By the way, AlphaGo was constructed in London so don't get all puffy on me). Google is a Canadian company to throw even more cold water on your ego. .
Both Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking have warned against the pitfalls of artificial intelligence. If we are not careful and reach the technological Singularity described by John von Neumann in 1950's all bets are off.
Seriously, I would not even hedge a bet on this topic. Everything is changing so fast and we are currently suffering an age of instability, not just in the US but the world over, that anything is possible but not everything is desirable (somebody really smart once said that).

What is your take on the role and future of Artificial Intelligence?Elon musk and Mark Zuckerberg represent the two versions of the importance of AI. Whose opinion do you mostly align to in their argument?

Will Humans be superseded if Artificial Intelligence gets to it's full potential?AI is given so much importance today infact each multinational IT giant uses this like google assistant, google adsense, fb etc.So much of attention to develop a race that will try to rule the human race.

Do you believe that mankind might achieve the creation of Artificial Intelligence?Stephen Hawking believes mankind may bring technology to the point of AI. He thinks it may become a danger to humanity at some point. I think he may have watched the Avengers, Age of Ultron movie recently, or perhaps...

The announcements from HubPages have contained a bit too much corporate-speak to be completely clear, so I'm starting a thread where we can share what we know in as plain-speaking a format as possible. Here is what we definitely know so far:1. Maven has bought HubPages. That...
