Are there any limits to AI? And should we avoid approaching them?

Current capabilities of artificial intelligence technology are already extremely advanced. AI is being integrated in physical and virtual robots, smart personal devices, autonomous cars, industrial control equipment, and much, much more. And, the future development prospects do not show any signs of an end to what can be done with this kind of tech.

But the human himself (or herself) has many limitations, many of which have already been far exceeded by many different technical measures that have been developed in the recent hundred or so years. Will we become more ‘perfect’ versions of ourselves too? What are we going to do when AI will perform nearly everything better than we do? Will the artificial intelligence be able to even make digital copies of us, just by observing human behavior?

“What’s the end game? Eventually, I won’t be around. But ‘it’ would”, Will.i.am asks a rhetorical question in the first episode of a new documentary “The Age of A.I.”. This documentary raises many more controversial ideas, and we invite to watch this video to find out about current frontiers of machine learning, and what we should considering for our own future:
