JAIR (ISSN 1076 - 9757) covers all areas of artificial intelligence (AI), publishing refereed research articles, survey articles, and technical notes. Established in 1993 as one of the first scientific journals on the Web, JAIR is indexed by , , and . JAIR reviews papers within approximately three months of submission and publishes accepted articles on the internet immediately upon receiving the final versions. JAIR is an journal and articles are published for free distribution on the internet by the . Bound volumes are available for from .
Artificial intelligence, or AI, has the potential to be extremely beneficial to humanity, but there are costs and problems that could arise as a result of it.
As the Internet and digital systems penetrate further each day into our daily lives, concerns about artificial intelligence (AI) are intensifying. It is difficult to get exercised about connections between the “Internet of Things” and AI when the most visible indications are Siri (Apple’s digital assistant), Google translate and smart houses, but a growing number of people, including many with a reputation for peering over the horizon, are worried.
With the heavy application of artificial intelligence, humans may become overly dependent on machines, losing their mental capacities.
▸ If the control of machines goes in the wrong hands, it may cause destruction.
A month later, distinguished scientist Stephen Hawking told the BBC that he feared that the development of “full artificial intelligence” could bring an end to the human race. Not today, of course, but over time, machines could become both more intelligent and physically stronger than human beings. Last month, Microsoft founder Bill Gates joined the group, saying that he did not understand people who were not troubled by the prospect of AI escaping human control.
Many working in this field dismiss the critics as fear mongers, or anticipating distant futures that may never materialize. That is no excuse for not being aware of the risks and working to ensure that boundaries are set, not just for research but for the application of that work. As always, the scientific communities must be alert to the dangers and working to instill cultures of safety and ethics. We need to be genuinely intelligent about how humankind anticipates artificial intelligence.
As in case of any other field, repetitive or time-consuming tasks can be managed through the application of artificial intelligence.
▸ Robotic pets can help patients with depression and also keep them active.
▸ Robotic radiosurgery helps achieve precision in the radiation given to tumors, thus reducing the damage to surrounding tissues.
▸ The greatest advantage of artificial intelligence is that machines do not require sleep or breaks, and are able to function without stopping.
They can adjust their parameters such as their speed and time, and be made to act quickly, unaffected by factors that affect humans.
▸ When we play a computer game or operate a computer-controlled bot, we are in fact interacting with artificial intelligence.
This is not the case with machines with artificial intelligence.
▸ Artificial intelligence can be utilized in carrying out repetitive and time-consuming tasks efficiently.
▸ Intelligent machines can be employed to do certain dangerous tasks.
Procedures to restore lost code or data may be time-consuming and costly.
▸ An important concern regarding the application of artificial intelligence is about ethics and moral values.
Thus, we see that artificial intelligence has made daily life a lot easier.
▸ Fraud detection in smart card-based systems is possible with the use of AI.
Artificial intelligence, or AI, has the potential to be extremely beneficial to humanity, but there are costs and problems that could arise as a result of it....
Applications like Siri that act as personal assistants, GPS and Maps applications that give users the best or the shortest routes to take as well as the traffic and time estimates to reach there, use artificial intelligence.
This journal contains information on theoretical or empirical studies in artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, jurisprudence, linguistics, or philosophy that address the development of formal or computational models of legal knowledge, reasoning, and decision making. It also includes in-depth studies of innovative artificial intelligence systems that are being used in the legal domain as well as gives space to studies that address the ethical and social implications of the field of artificial intelligence and law.
