A Symbiotic Future

Artificial intelligence is not new: the earliest known rudimentary AI was developed by the Egyptians to multiply two numbers. But the recent mergers of evolving technologies with medical science, genetics, and engineering have created a powerful symbiosis of human and artificial intelligence that challenges the notion of humans as supreme beings. It is predicted that within 20 years, AI will be billions of times smarter than humans and that our survival as a species will be predicated on our ability to merge with machines.
