Alan Turing developed the Turing Test in the 1950’s to test the machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. In 2018, Google did a public demo of Google Duplex, a system they that is being developed in which an AI will make calls to real businesses and get work done without the person on the other side of the call even knowing it was a machine talking to them.
The line between what a machine could do and what a human can do is thinning by the day. While we lose jobs to automation and AI by the day, humans are forced to find creative ways to stay relevant. But what happens when Artificial Intelligence fails? AI Apocalypse?
