Man vs. Machine
So will machines actually replace human beings in the future?
It was in 1997, when Deep Blue, IBM’s supercomputer, defeated Gary Kasparov, the reigning world chess champion of the era that people started asking…
Is a machine actually smarter than human beings?
Will machines replace humans in the future?
This wasn’t about industrial machines that could lift up heavy material or pull metal that weighed metrics of tons. This was about the machines with cognitive abilities.
Yes, it was only to play chess that it was programmed; but this only emphasized the fact that a machine can indeed be programmed to think and act like human beings.
Many are still under the impression that the disruptive nature of the machines of the modern day, poses a risk to the human race, creating problems for big business. However, this is not true.
The main objective behind Artificial Intelligence is to help humans take advantage of the knowledge and resources available and solve the problems that matter the most by working together with these machines.
It is about achieving the right balance between human beings and automation to come up with the optimal outcome.
