AI is the fast-growing Technology which everyone is talking about. Companies are investing much in AI to leverage its benefit without thinking much how can. AI will impact the business.

Some expert says AL will improve the human efficiency in doing work, some are afraid that AI will totally replace human from the org. Experts believe that Artificial Intelligence can transform the way we view the world.

So, what AI exactly is? How it is going to affect human being?

Artificial Intelligence is the computer system or software that are capable of doing tasks that requires human brain or human intelligence. AI is the software that can think like and human brain and solve many problems in future. Even some AL software can develop visual aids or some may write songs the advancement in Artificial Intelligence has created wariness environment. Several Scholars and experts have shown their fear with development in AI. Elon Musk CEO of Tesla said AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilisation.

From SIRI to self-driving cars, AI is growing very fast. Today Artificial Intelligence can be used in a very narrow sense. It can only perform some specific tasks based on algorithm but in future researcher are expecting it may outperform human beings such as plying chess, solving equations etc.

Some believe that people will be better-off with the advancement in AI. On the other hand, some think that AI will make human life worse. Different people have different opinion about the same technology.

Automation has transformed the way we perform our tasks with the help of robots and machines. Further Artificial Intelligent assistance can change our shopping experience. Till now people have full control over it, now it may take over by machines. So, the sophistication of AI is increasing.

Many developers such as Google's DeepMind and Elon Musk's Open AI teach AI software how to learn. These games make AL capable of taking decisions. It is expected that these software with more research and advancement can perform multi-step voice commands.

Many experts and researchers are worry that if robots and machines can outperform humans then they can develop many weapons to influence decision of human being. It may reprogram itself and human wouldn't compete.

Renowned personalities believe that researcher must not ignore the development and advancement in Artificial Intelligence. Hawking thinks that there must be a regulatory body at international level to prevent any country to develop with AI more and become superior. He thought that the superior country will rule the other nation.

Seth Shostak believes that the narrow AI will perform only specific and programmed tasks and with development, in their third generation, Robots will have their own agenda.

However, some believe that advancement in Technology can better-off human lives. Researchers are still working on AI and trying to understand the impact of AI on human beings.
