Researchers at the Nanyang Technical University in Singapore may have made a breakthrough with artificial intelligence! Using fiber optics, they created what they are now calling ‘photonic synapses’. These are light-bearing amorphous metal-sulphide microfibers that function similar to the human brain.
Artificial intelligence has been a subject of controversy the past few years. While A.I. could provide major technological advances that would make everyday life easier, it also has the potential to steal jobs in many industries. Questions of the technology’s ethics have also been brought up.
In the meantime we continue using the advanced technology, such as Siri, to save time and do more. With fiber optic technology rapidly advancing, there’s no telling what is possible!!
