Technology: A spiral that never ends, no matter where it spins. Such is the case today where Smartphone revolution has been pecked up to a saturation point. Still more, the spiral is growing with the fastest speed possible, hovering over its new platform: machines. It isn’t that the focus has shifted from mobile phones, or machines are in a very introductory stage of functioning with ‘technological smartness’. But, surely there is a shift that has vast impacts on our life.
IBM’s Watson is an artificially intelligent computer which answers to questions in normal language due to rapid advances in IBM’s natural language processing system. It is reliably used in hospitals. Smart computers find use in financial companies to gain news feeds and place bets bases on that. Robots have taken over humans in warehouses as well as in surgeries.
A Group of Oxford University Academics agrees that invasion of smart machines is happening faster than we thought. They have already known to displace jobs is Japan. Chinese electronic companies have installed vision assisting systems and robotics for running their assembly plants. Among all Google’s automated cars have blazed up the situation. Using camera, radar and range finder, these cars can travel 300,000 miles without getting into any accidents. While, self-flying killing machines are used by America’s military security complex.
Fictional novels are turning into reality as they see sensors such as voice recognition, and nanotechnology breathing life into machines. The inventions are marking the dawn of an era of cognitive systems by creating machines which can sense, learn, reason and interact with people. This evolution has struck as a zapping wave that can destruct jobs faster than it can create them. A recent study by the Oxford Martin program on the Impact of Future Technology assumes that 45% of American jobs can be taken by computers within two decades. Moreover, it has its impact on the educational system too.
Smart machines haven’t touched the consumer market widely, but with their efficiency and diversion of human work force from less complicated chores to harder ones, it will be hard to resist smart machines besides the downfall of their emergence.
