Many organisations like the banks, the military, and government agencies and so on are now turning their attention to artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) approaches that make automated decision-making altogether enigmatic.

Not knowing what happens exactly inside that black box or the brain of the AI algorithm we often rely on it to make some crucial decisions like an investment decision, a medical decision and other complex decisions.

Many debates have pointed to the fact that AI poses a real-world threat.

The human brain has advanced over time in responding to survival instincts, harnessing intellectual curiosity, and managing demands of nature. And now the intelligent human brain has developed artificial intelligence (AI). The combination of mathematics, algorithms, computational methods, and statistical models is accelerating our scientific pursuit and lead us to create AI. Now, artificial intelligence technologies are getting fundamentally advanced enough to be able to approximate an individuals’ writing or speaking style, and even facial expressions. Artificial intelligence (AI) personal assistants like Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana, Google Assistant and Siri, all use text-to-speech software creating a more convenient interface with their users. These technologies answer to human queries mimicking human speech, emotions, and behaviors.

An emerging field called “neuromorphic computing” focuses on the design of computational hardware inspired by the human brain. Dr. Xiong and his team built graphene-based “artificial synapses” in a 2D honeycomb configuration of carbon atoms. Graphene’s conductive properties allowed the researchers to finely tune their electrical conductance. The graphene synapse demonstrated excellent energy efficiency just like biological synapses, said the study published in the journal Advanced Materials. The development of an artificial brain that functions like the analog human brain still requires a number of breakthroughs, said, researchers.

As native intelligence of the human race has produced inventions that are ubiquitous, the confluence of human intelligence and artificial intelligence will amplify growth and deliver sustainable progress.
