Will evolution of Artificial Intelligence (AI) overtake humans??

Ever seen a movie "I Robot"? If so, then you may have wondered "huh! so evolution is meant for any piece of crap that exists" or such similar thought. My view is YES, it is meant for everything including the cap of your pen to the piece of code written somewhere on earth. They all undergo a change maybe for betterment or for worse. One such evolution is over its way and is progressing rapidly I might add, the evolution of AI. When we say evolution we generally think its the development for something better. But it is not a necessity that it is for better of human beings only.  I would put evolution in 3 phases future, present and past. The future becomes present, the present becomes past and the past becomes the trigger.


For the sake of making it easy for me to tell the evolution of AI from my viewpoint, I will tell you folks inline with these 3 phases. Don't worry I am not going to increase your boredom by giving you the information on AI enhancements till no…
