See some science fiction movies may be the best predictive method to know almost what will happen to the future of humanity. He said the American science fiction writer Rod Serling: “science fiction is the improbable made it possible”, and there can be no better definition.
That made it possible to “unlikely” we see with the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in our daily actions. Science fiction has already become a reality in the palm of our hand, through mobile applications that take advantage of the human rational logic in fields as diverse as health, education or entertainment. With the development of Artificial Intelligence, coupled with the momentum of Robotics and Neuroscience, our life is transforming giant steps.
But the Artificial Intelligence is not a concept as new as it is believed. In fact, it was coined in 1956 by a group of scientists from the University of Dartmouth who sought to incorporate human logic to the machines. Started from the belief that the human learning process consists of a series of well-defined phases that could be emulated by the machine.
Some scholars, even anticipate this date to 1936 when Alan Turing designed a machine that implemented previously defined calculations. Although, without a doubt, the milestone in IA occurred in 1997 when IBM and your computer Deep Blue won a game of chess to Gary Kasparov.
Already today, one of the most significant advances that we see on a daily basis is the application of ‘bots’ that anticipate our tastes. But what are the ‘bots’? By defining it in a simple way, a ‘bot’ is a software that establishes a communication with the user trying to simulate or mimic the behavior of another human being. These ‘bots’ work across applications and the most common are the ‘chatbots’.
