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?
Today, Artificial Intelligence, or “Ai,” is often labeled as an, “inexact science.” Nevertheless, in many ways Ai is no different than other sciences. Furthermore, “Ai,” is really just a combination of; statistics, computer sciences and psychology. This makes, “Ai,” scholastically similar to other subject matters and also, an evolution of subject matter itself.
Alas, this leads me to believe that Ai should be re-classified, into it’s own form of science.
The only reason Ai is still considered, “unproven,” is because robotics have yet to become a fixture in ordinary lives, but that’s quickly changing. Today, this field remains more accustomed to science fiction and horror movies, even though, Ai is growing in use everyday. This is particularly true, due to the importance of Ai, in terms of future space exploration.
Nevertheless, this field is very relevant, very important and deserves the classification of it’s own subject matter entirely….. Math, Geometry, Geography, History, Science, Psychology, Ai.
Galileo was once mocked by scholars when he invented the telescope. This occurred because centuries before, a philosopher and theologian named Copernicus had previously declared, “the heavenly bodies in the sky, could never change.” Copernicus wrote doctrines on heaven and hell, far before Galileo’s life-time. This led public opinion at that time, to in turn challenge Galileo, even though Galileo had observed, “changes in the cosmos,” with his newly invented telescopes. Due to this scientific 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.
