Branding Sophia: AI vs Human Capital
We have come to a point in our lives where the life of an Artificial Intelligence is worth more than any with a melanin ratio that has been deemed unacceptable. The term “artificial intelligence” (AI)-"referring to the use of computer systems to perform tasks that normally require human understanding…has been around for nearly 60 years. (…) Our increasingly sophisticated understanding of how the human brain works and our ability to embed brain-like elements into computers have engendered such capabilities as voice and pattern recognition, natural language learning, and machine learning.” The reality of AI deployment will lead to an imbalanced world if not addressed quickly by countries’ leadership as there are approximately 900 companies working in the AI arena as the market for consumer and business robots is expected to rise to 1.5 billion US dollars by 2019 and to be worth 16.06 billion US dollars by 2022. With 40 percent of the world’s population now online, and with more than 2 billion smartphones being used; these AI companies are creating data assets, which essentially “describe our behaviors, interests, knowledge, connections and activities at a level of granularity that has never existed”.
We are now at a crossroads where humanlike machines meets spiritual beings, and our unique coding is explained in our DNA- “deoxyribonucleic acid, a self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information” that can serve as the basis for replicating, recreating and reinstating any being at any time. Strangely enough the DNA “consumer genetic testing market was valued at 70 million US dollars in 2015, but estimates expect it to expand to 340 million US dollars by 2022.” By gradually collecting DNA’s as it allows a multitude of creations and alteration to human kind, the DNA business is ever-growing as “the largest DNA database in the world is the
