Is Artificial Intelligence… The New Psychology? Part 4 – Ai Series

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.

Ai majors? Why not? Because today, Artificial Intelligence (or Ai) is often labeled as an, “inexact extension of computer science,” though in many ways… Ai is no different than other, more credible forms of science. And furthermore, “Ai,” is really just a combination and assortment of; statistics, computer sciences and psychology, in my opinion. Whereby, this makes, “Ai,” scholastically similar to other subject matters and also, an evolution of subject matter itself, in my opinion.

However, this leads me to believe that Ai should be re-classified as it’s own form of science entirely, IE what algebra is to math, Ai is to biology, psychology and math altogether.

Whereby, I also believe that Ai is still considered by most as an, “unproven field,” yet only because robotics haven’t so far become a fixture in most people’s daily lives, even though that’s quickly changing. But today, this field remains more akin to science fiction and horror movies… however, Ai is growing in utility everyday. But also, this is particularly true due to the importance of Ai… in terms of the growing, “space industry,” and the emergence of, “space technology.”

Which to re-iterate, is another reason as to why this field is relevant, very important and deserves the classification of it’s own subject matter entirely… Math, Geometry, Geography, History, Science, Psychology, Computer Science, Ai.

Whereby, Galileo was once mocked and ridiculed by his fellow scholars… after inventing the first telescope and observing the night sky. This ridicule during the 17th century then occurred because centuries before… a philosopher and theologian named Copernicus had declared that, “the heavenly bodies in the sky would never change.” And Copernicus had previously written doctrines on heaven and hell, far before Galileo’s life-time, which controlled public opinion at that time, contradicting Galileo’s invention of the first telescope. Nevertheless, due to this scientific struggle, today Astronomy is considered, “it’s own pillar of science,” since removed from scientific ridicule and religious persecution, whereby Galileo was sentenced to house arrest until his death for his contradiction of modern science. So, fast forward 350 years… and in that same light, I now feel as though, “modern Ai,” deserves similar credibility.
