Artificial Intelligence: Unleashing the Potential of Thinking Machines


Artificial Intelligence: The Journey to a Thinking Machine

Artificial Intelligence: The Journey towards a Thinking Machine

When the latest version of generative artificial intelligence was released in late 2022, it became evident that something significant had changed.

The language model ChatGPT achieved 100 million active monthly users within just two months, making it the fastest-growing consumer application in history. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs predicted that AI could contribute 7% to the global GDP over a 10-year period, which is nearly $7 trillion, but also result in the replacement of 300 million jobs.

However, as AI continues to disrupt every aspect of life and work, it is important to pause and reflect.

In this visualization, the first installment of a three-part series titled “The AI Revolution,” sponsored by VERSES AI, we delve into the questions of how we reached this point, where we are heading, and how close we are to achieving a truly thinking machine.

Milestones on the Path to Mainstream Adoption

The term “artificial intelligence” was coined by computer scientist John McCarthy in 1955 during a conference proposal. Alongside Alan Turing, Marvin Minsky, and many others, McCarthy is often referred to as one of the pioneers of AI.

Since then, AI has made tremendous progress. It has mastered chess, defeating Russian grandmaster and former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. In 2016, Google’s AlphaGo defeated South Korean Go champion Lee Sedol with a score of 4-1. The nine-year gap in these achievements can be attributed to the complexity of Go, which has approximately 10^360 possible moves, far surpassing chess with its comparatively meager 10^123 combinations.

With the advent of DALL-E in 2021 and ChatGPT-4 in early 2023, we find ourselves in the present day, continuing the journey towards a thinking machine.

Envisioning a More Intelligent World

VERSES AI, a cognitive computing company specializing in next-generation AI and the sponsor of this article, may hold the key.

The company has recently published research that demonstrates how to develop an AI system capable of not just thinking, but also introspecting and providing explanations for its “thought processes.” Stay tuned for the upcoming installment of The AI Revolution series to delve deeper into this topic.
