Artificial intelligence, a kind of mechanical intelligence, is developing so fast that it has already been implanted in many high-tech fields in our daily life. Our human society web depends on interaction and is crisscrossed by the internet. We are experiencing problems with dealing with AI and relationships between human beings.

After Alpha Go,a computer software program, beat Lee Sedol (a South Korean professional  “Go” game player) in a five-game match, this marked the first time a computer GO program has beaten a 9-dan, the highest ranked professional player, without handicaps. It was shocking that a human had concocted such an intelligent machine, which in the first game a human won. Google, therefore, has not stopped its step in improving and devising contemporary AI. On December 14 2017, with the assistance of artificial intelligence, NASA discovered Kepler-90(a G-type main sequence star located about 2545 light-year from Earth in the constellation of Draco). Kepler is a space discovery telescope, responsible for much of the searching. It seems that AI has truly been made abundant with unprecedented steps that push human society forward.

On the other hand, this inscrutable technology makes people apprehensive. Undoubtedly, advanced technology has brought convenience. In a special work environment, AI could assist humans to complete tasks perfectly as well as effectively. There may be a time when people are forced to compete with those highly intelligent machines. It is obvious that we can’t beat machines like Lee Sedol previously mentioned. It is likely to lead to certain unemployment. People will have to work in high pressure to seek the spare jobs left to survive. Stephen Hawking admitted that our future was uncertain a few months ago.

“Success in creating effective AI could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. We cannot know if we will be infinitely helped by AI, or ignored by it and side-lined, or conceivably destroyed by it,” said Stephen Hawking.

However, AI is more like a double-edged sword. No one can say that he isn’t imperious. The first thing we could do is be aware of the dangers, identify those potential dangers, think before we jump, and prepare for any of AI’s bad consequences well in advance. Human and AI’s relationship still remains to be seen.
