July 5th 2017 – By: William Larsen – Civilians News – “News For All Views” – Is Artificial Intelligence The New Psychology?
In my opinion, Artificial Intelligence is a subject matter and not a “field or niche.”
Math, Science, Geometry, Computer Science, Psychology…… Artificial Intelligence……
While most civilians don’t view Ai in that same breath, modern science increasingly points to a future, where Ai is treated in the same way as Psychology.
I believe Artificial Intelligence deserves that level of classification.
Despite Artificial Intelligence currently being viewed as an, “inexact science,” in many ways Ai is no different than other sciences. In fact, most Ai is created through a combination of; statistics, computer science and psychology. This makes the field of “Ai,” not only on the same level as other subject matters, but also an evolution of “subject matter” itself.
For this reason, I believe Ai should be classified in it’s own form of science.
The only reason Ai is considered “unproven….” to this point….. is because robotics and “human robotics,” have yet to become a fixture in people’s daily lives….. Today, “this field,” remains more accustomed to science fiction and horror movies, but that is quickly changing. This is particularly true, due to the importance of Ai, in terms of future space exploration.
Nevertheless, this field is very much relevant, very much important and it deserves the classification of it’s own subject matter entirely….. Math, Geometry, Geography, History, Science, Psychology, Ai.
Galileo was mocked by scholars, when he invented the telescope. This occurred, because centuries before a philosopher/theologian named Copernicus, previously said, “the heavenly bodies in the sky, could never change.” Copernicus wrote doctrines on heaven and hell, far before Galileo’s life-time, when Galileo observed “changes” in the cosmos. Due to that struggle, today Astronomy is considered it’s own pillar of science, since removed from religious persecution. Now, fast forward 350 years and in that same light, I feel “modern Ai” deserves similar credibility.
