The Rise of Artificial Intelligence, Implications for Humanity and the Global Economy

Introduction

The world is nearing a crisis, led by a villainous mastermind of global proportions: The Grand Wizzard. He’s been spending the last few decades executing his plan for world domination that he calls “The End Game.” To accomplish his plan, he’s been systematically eliminating all opposition in the form of countries around the world that have either challenged him or had the potential for challenging him. In essence, he’s been eliminating both heroes and villains alike in a global purge. It’s been a success. Nobody has been able to stop him from annexing several countries and gaining control over virtually all of them. To date, he’s eliminated 3/4ths of the planet’s population, but before he can finish his plan, a singular event happens — an event that not even he predicted.
A new villain emerges with seemingly limitless potential — the Overseer. The Overseer has been developing his own plan that is actually complementary to The Grand Wizzard’s plan. While The Grand Wizzard has been systematically eliminating opposition to his reign, The Overseer has been systematically eliminating the world’s population.
The two villains have different motivations:

Google’s AI-Based Search Tool is Your Best Friend

Google’s AI-powered search engine, which is known as “Google Now,” is one of the most advanced AI programs in existence. The search engine developed by Google is capable of offering suggestions on what to do based on specific user queries that are entered into the search bar. It’s also capable of recognizing emotions. With its impressive features and capabilities, it has become a great help to both Android users and Apple iPhone users worldwide. By filling your information and preferences into Google Now, you can get the most relevant search results to your queries. But what’s even more interesting is that this AI engine can now even predict your future needs, which means that it can provide you accurate information about what you should do in the near future. It has been said that Google Now is to become the best assistant a user would ever have.
Google Now (AI Assistant) as an assistant is closer to Siri than Siri is to Cortana. The difference between these two is huge, especially when you compare their capabilities and functions. Google Now, on the other hand, doesn’t just have an assistant feature. Once it starts working, it takes over your whole smartphone and provides you with all the information that you need at that moment.
In order to get Google Now as your own personal assistant, you’d have to download it from the Play Store first. For Android devices running on Android 4.0 or later versions, Google Now is easily downloadable from the Play Store for free. The process of downloading it is very simple. All you have to do is tap on “More” and search for it in the list of results that would pop up. Google Now can be downloaded right after you tap on “Get it now.”

What are the Best AI-Based Apps for Businesses & Professionals?

Despite the fact that AI-assisted software has led to the development of some great things, it’s very important to know that these technologies are not perfect. It is important for business owners, employees and professionals to consider their use of AI-based applications when it comes to working with customers and clients. In addition, experts are warning about the risk of overlooking possible adverse effects as well as performing actual human tests on these AI-based systems before fully trusting them. A recent survey conducted by Puppet, a company specializing in IT management software, found that nearly 1 in 5 companies have not yet discovered any long-term adverse effects from their use of AI-based software. This has encouraged the development of new tools that can help organizations assess the quality, accuracy and reliability of these software systems. Through a special research project, Puppet surveyed 2,000 companies to ask about their use of artificial intelligence-based software for tasks such as customer service agent training, automated customer support, and real-time predictive analytics. The results were revealing and it shows that most companies are treating AI-based systems as a tool with which to speed up manual tasks rather than relying on AI to make decisions on their behalf.

Although the term “AI” is often used to describe computer systems that are modeled after human intelligence, there are actually several types of AI technology. One type of AI is referred to as a Deep Learning system. Google’s DeepMind has created an advanced deep learning system called AlphaGo, which recently beat the world’s best player at the Chinese game of Go. It’s important to note that DeepMind is not a public company and it isn’t clear whether or not their technology will be available for other companies to use in the future. DeepMind is a private company based in London, England.
tacit.ai is another company that is applying deep learning and machine learning to real world problems.
