A.I. Manipulation
The Global Intelligence|Winter 2017

Artificial intelligence is here, but we don’t even know what it can do yet.

Emilie Oblivion

THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE boom has arrived, not with the bang of omnipotent robots doing our bidding, but with the whisper of computer processors, aiding us more and more in our day-to-day lives until we can’t imagine a world without them. Image recognition, product recommendation, and satellite navigation are just the beginning of this technological revolution.

The current definition of artificial intelligence (A.I.) is broad, and what is considered an intelligent machine is up for debate. Classification of A.I. is based the two domains in which it can operate: closed and open. An open domain bot, whether in the form of software or an autonomous unit, can function in any field. There is no restriction on what the bot can process in terms of their general environment. Open domain includes sci-fi machines like the droids in Star Wars. They can apply their intelligence to diverse tasks as easily as a human can, for example, jumping from writing book reviews to predicting weather and stock fluctuations. This may be the end goal of A.I., but with current technology, it is almost impossible to achieve because it requires the bot to process such large sets of data.

Closed domain A.I., on the other hand, may not seem like the robots of science fiction, but it is the way artificial intelligence has already become an integral part of our society, and it is increasingly becoming indissociably so. These A.I.s have expertise on a limited subject, for example, automatically calculating the fastest route across town or finding and comparing flight prices. Google Maps, however, cannot simply begin piloting a driverless car. It is only intelligent across a limited number of tasks.

Not sleeping well? Your immune system could be to blame.

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Do you find yourself frequently falling ill or feeling under the weather? Well, those two things could actually be related! Your immune system is more active at night, which is why melatonin, your sleep hormone, is associated with protecting you from viruses, cancer and more. Good sleep is empowering to your immune system. Unfortunately, if you have some chronic issues such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or toxins that put stress on your immune system, they can interrupt your sleep and defeat your best efforts to attain good quality sleep.
