From game of chairs to game of pixels, life seems to be revolving among images, be it of a 4-legged object which we all refer to as the chair, or the x cross x picture represented as collection of pixels.
The more you go deep in the subject of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the more you realize that you have just touched the tip of an iceberg, or a little beyond that ;).
Isn’t if fascinating enough that a machine can learn to do what a human does, learn to emulate, if not all, at least few aspects of our own thought process, experience the emotions in the form of an equation.
Imagine, how a machine would read an image by converting the information stored in the pixels into a combination of (0,1) and then predicting whether it was a (0,1) or a (1,0), and depending on whether it was predicting correct, label it as being intelligent or not.
What correlations it draws analogous to what relations it develops with different parameters, reflects its ability to predict, ultimately coming down to its ability to learn.
Which makes me wonder, whether our life is nothing but a manifestation of a collection of pixels. The experiences we have, the stories we built around the same, the moments of pleasure and happiness that we spend with our near and dear ones, it’s all in the form of pictures that we tend to cherish through out our lives in the form of photo albums or Instagram images.
Wonder whether the zeroes and ones written for us, have already been predicted as ones and zeroes and we are just learning to decipher how these zeroes and ones change to ones and zeroes!
