Even as we speak, machines and artificial intelligence are becoming even more capable, doing things that used to be the sole domain of humans.

Would these systems really be able to breach all frontiers and cross the bridge of what makes us humans?

How do you differentiate between a robot and a human anyways.

At the risk of venturing into philosophy, one might say that creativity, the ability to come up with something brand new and original is what sets the human race apart from machines, and indeed, despite all the advances that we have made, can a machine create poetry? Can artificial intelligence produce a fresh story? Can a robot, be a journalist?

At the risk of venturing into philosophy, one might say that creativity, the ability to come up with something brand new and original is what sets the human race apart from machine.

Interestingly, the AI is taking the learning curve that would be taken by humans as well – unskilled jobs first, followed by skilled ones.

Notwithstanding what the report says, robots are already encroaching upon journalism as well and given a few years, we might find ourselves changing our minds about whether or not they can replace human journalists.

See, journalism is a job that requires skills like quick response time, creativity, the ability to sift through data and so on.

An AI would arguably be better than a human at most of them.

The thing with AI, and that sets them apart from all other machines and technologies in much the same way that humans are different from all other animals – is their ability to take up data, go through it and eventually get better.
