AI and machine learnng is the new future, let us understand it to succeed !

AI cannot be ignored. It is here to stay. It would help if we join in instead or worrying about it for worrying has never solved anything.
In the recent past, “machine learning” has come to seem like the new path forward. Free of human programmers, machines are training themselves on massive data sets and producing results that have shocked even the optimists in the field. Earlier this year, two AIs—one created by the Chinese company Alibaba and the other by Microsoft—beat a team of two-legged competitors in a Stanford reading-comprehension test. The algorithms “read” a series of Wikipedia entries on things like the rise of Genghis Khan and the Apollo space program and then answered a series of questions about them more accurately than people did. One Alibaba scientist declared the victory a “milestone.”
If one can learn history from AI then, then truly AI has indeed become a part of our world.
In today’s world, hedge funds are using AI to beat the stock market, in another area, Google is utilizing it to diagnose heart disease more quickly and accurately. American Express is deploying AI bots to serve its customers online. The dialogue now is longer speak of just one AI, but of hundreds, each specializing in a complex task—and many of the applications are already lapping the humans that made them.
These AIs called “narrow AI” are everywhere, embedded in our GPS systems and Amazon recommendations. Actually, the ultimate goal of AI is artificial general intelligence, a self-teaching system that can outperform humans across a wide range of disciplines. This is bound to happen. Some believe it would take 30 years, others say it will take centuries. This is called singularity and will likely see AI pull even with human intelligence. It will then blow past it in a matter of days. Or hours.
Initially, general AI will begin taking jobs away from people, millions of jobs—as drivers, radiologists, insurance adjusters. In one possible scenario, this will lead governments to pay unemployed citizens a universal basic income, freeing them to pursue their dreams unburdened by the need to earn a living. It could also create staggering wealth inequalities, chaos and failed states across the globe. The revolution itself will go much further. AI robots will care for the elderly—scientists at Brown University are working with Hasbro to develop a “robo-cat” that can remind its owners to take their meds and can track down their eyeglasses. Scientists using AI  solve the puzzle of dark matter; AI-enabled spacecraft will reach the asteroid belts. On Earth the technology will tame climate change, perhaps by sending many drones to reflect sunlight away from the oceans. Last year, Microsoft committed $50 million to its “AI for Earth” program to fight climate change.
Like in all areas, it is the direction that matters, not the technology itself. To give it a suitable direction, we must master it and understand it completely.
