The Plain Man Putting the book back on the shelf, Darryl began his journey back to his table. Thoughts about the author bounced around in his tired mind. He sat down and opened his chemistry book. A few minutes later, Darryl had fallen asleep with his head on the table. “Sir, it would be best if you got up now,” said a voice. Darryl almost jumped from his skin. “I… I have permission to be here,” he stuttered. When he looked up, he saw a man in about his fifties; he was dressed in khakis and a navy cardigan and was standing with his hands in his pockets. The man was staring at him from ten feet away, and his head was tipped to see above his wire-rimmed glasses. “Yes, I know. What I meant was to rise from this table and do something with your life. There’s more to life than perfect grades, you know?” the man replied. “Who are you? Why are you here?” Darryl spit out. The man turned to walk away and said, “I could ask the same of you. Could I not?” “Wait, where are you going?” cried out Darryl. As the man walked further away into the darkness of the library, it was almost as if he was disappearing. The last thing the man said as he left was, “Get up from your seat, my friend. Go forth to serve the world and find happiness in living.” Then he was gone.
The Pros and Cons of the Future of Artificial Intelligence When people first hear about the future of Artificial Intelligence, there are normally three stages that they will undergo. The first of these stages is amazement. Just the fact that scientists are getting close to fixing long-standing world problems such as world hunger, air pollution, and disease can take one’s breath away. Along with this is the second stage of apprehension. With all of these improvements comes the possibility of many risks and hazards that will change our lives forever. Thinking about both of these ideas, however, one will eventually come to the conclusion that the future is inevitable, and that the advancement of Artificial Intelligence will bring about both positive and negative effects. Artificial Intelligence can be defined in several ways. One way is to say that it is “machine intelligence” or “designed intelligence”. However, in order to fully understand this concept, one would have to dig deeper into the definition of intelligence. Most people would agree that intelligence is the ability to be taught and have memory, along with everyday awareness and the will to work towards personal goals. Achieving this kind of thinking outside of human flesh would be the creation of Artificial Intelligence. There are several ways in which one can go about testing for Artificial Intelligence in machines. One way is a simple Turing Test. In a Turing Test, a judge speaks with both a human and a robot, whose identities have been concealed. If the judge cannot tell the difference between the two during casual conversation, then the robot is considered intelligent. Thus far in history, no machine has passed this test, but technology is getting close. Another way to test for Artificial Intelligence is to examine the Six Levels of Thought. When a machine has completed all six levels, it can be considered intelligent. (not full report)
I feel as if throughout my entire life, I’ve strived to be the best person I can be through helping others and through personal satisfaction and achievement. Though I may be somewhat of a perfectionist at times, I keep my head cool when stressful times arise. I make it through those hard times, and learn well from my mistakes. I know my limits, and when something feels too out of reach I’ll step down before everything becomes a disaster. Despite this, I test my limits often. I think that if I work hard enough, I can achieve almost anything. When natural talent falls short, we still have our personalities and work ethics to carry us through.
