artificial intelligence

The creation of thinking machines inspires great optimism in the future of technical progress on the one hand, but it also creates fear for our freedom and safety. However, we are still far from creating really dangerous technologies. Today, artificial intelligence algorithms are too specialized and only capable of solving specific problems. The main operating principle of modern programs involves the application of skills acquired during training using a large data sample in unknown situations. For example, computers can help astronomers find new space objects by analyzing large amounts of data collected using telescopes. Humans are simply incapable of processing these large amounts of data.
