Two months back I sat for the lecture of Dr. Scott Lee (Professor of Endocrinology, Linda University in the United states). He explained his crew’s invention of the artificial pancreas which could achieve the target Hb1Ac of 6.9 mg/dl which is one of the greatest achievements compared to other primitive models of the artificial pancreas which could not make Hb1Ac below 7 mg/dl.
The wonder in this subject is how the artificial pancreas brings the glucose down? You might have have heard of intellectual intelligence, Emotional Intelligence (E.I.) and spiritual intelligence. Artificial intelligence is far beyond what we actually know about it.
You might have thought robots won’t reach the reasoning of human beings. Participating in the polls of Telegraph UK today, I was stunned to see about 76% actually weren’t worried about losing their job when the Bank of England’s Chief Economist stated about half of the British jobs will be replaced by robots in the next 20 years – and that’s not so far. That’s an estimate of about 15 million jobs. Currently, South Korea, Japan and Germany have replaced 347, 339 – 261 jobs per 1000 jobs… There are other nations which have appointed robots to replace human beings for accurate and efficient productivity. This is indeed an insecurity to manpower.
So why did I say Artificial Intelligence is a matter of insecurity to human intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence is not the old thing which we used to believe like a machine that works based on the programmed data. That era is near its extinction. This is a new age of artificial Intelligence that can effectively compete and challenge human intelligence. ‘Machine learning’ is a marvelous product of human intellect that has made robots to effectively and accurately learn the universe and human body based on the observed algorithmic data and results directly from the nature.
So what is the machine learning? How has it brought a big renaissance in the Artificial Intelligence? The artificial pancreas is one of the simplest examples for this intelligence. Type 1 Diabetes is a condition where the pancreas has lost its innate ability to release insulin from beta cells due to the antibodies like anti islet cell antibodies and Anti GAD 65 attacking its own cells. As a result insulin is not naturally produced in response to rising glucose levels in blood. When pancreas fails, glucose in the blood rises and injures vessels, nerves and major organs. Artificial pancreas studies your basal insulin secretion and glucose levels simultaneously over time and starts pumping appropriate insulin to your subcutaneous fat in response to your glucose levels. So a person can never get a hypoglycemic complication like you see in manual injection of insulin.
Machine learning is very precise and accurate, unlike human learning. At times, humans can be, but we are subjected to constant fluctuations because of the influence of our thoughts, beliefs and emotions. This artificial intelligence of machine learning has now replaced the old programmes of machines and humans as well in astrophysics, geoengineering, genetics, biology, medical science and the very basics of human psychology.
The ability to measure and study the humans and universe accurately and responding back precisely to balance the systems is indeed a great achievement, but at the same time the very same intelligence will start to act and think like humans – some times even more wiser. Machine intelligence learns nature as such without distortions and works in the same way as the nature does. It is a process of deep learning in other words. This is what indeed a human cannot do, because a human loves to violate natural laws. Machine learning are just like trustworthy slaves of nature. I would say machine learning is ‘accepting the reality as it is’ just like the sincere believers of God. Fuzzy logics, Astro ML, Tensor flow, H2O, weka, Encog are a few of the machine learning programs.
And do you expect in this capitalist economy, the industrialists and tops of the pyramids will keep humans out there when they get precise machines that can work several times more productive than you are – accurate and precise, efficient and cheap – and that can do multiple tasks at the same time which can boost the monetary income in a way that we cannot expect in short span of time?
