Nikola Tesla, an American inventor who lived in the 20th century, amazed people with his inventions at the time, and 80 years after his death, Tesla is still alive and amazes people again
Recently, new information about Tesla’s writings has been revealed, revealing some startling predictions. Especially in aspects related to the advent of artificial intelligence (Artificial Intelligence), also known as AI (AI) for short.
The engineer and inventor to whom Elon Musk lent his name to brand the company’s electric cars. He is known as the real inventor of electric power and related technologies.
not only that He also had the ability to see the possibilities of developments in science in the future. And he is a real futurist.
In a document stated as written in June 1900 Tesla confidently states that In the future there will be a mechanical man. (Meaning robots) that “have a mind of their own”, although it seemed impossible at the time. He also wrote explaining that Having a mind of your own in these robots means that it can do things independently. It does not depend on any commander and it reacts to external stimuli that affect its sensitive and sensing organs (parts).
Tesla concluded that these humans or robots can do things like people with minds of their own. That is, it is a device that has “intelligence”.
This part of Tesla’s prophecy seems to correspond with what is happening today. where AI technology has started to play an increasingly important role in human life, together with the development of both functionality and the ability to carry out tasks in more complex ways And it is likely that in the future society will rely more and more on the work of the AIs this. Although most people are going to use it in a very bad way. But there are people who use GPT chat to help with real work. Meanwhile, Elon Musk is aiming for excellence with his new product, Optimus, a humanoid or humanoid robot. which he expects to be a very profitable product for the company in the future
We look back at the history of Nikola Tesla, a man of Serbian descent who was born in the Austrian Empire in 1977. Born in 1865 and settled in the United States, this young man had a huge impact on modern technology with his inventions and ideas. Whether it is electric power, hydroelectric power, Tesla coil, radio broadcasting basics, etc.
A new round of re-examination of Tesla’s writings led to the discovery of information. His ideas included many of his amazing predictions for the future Tesla was very interested in AI. He predicted that This artifact is able to learn and adjust its behavior based on external influences. as well as being able to distinguish between bad and good As well as being able to record experiences to be used as information for making decisions in the future, just as humans can do.
Not only did Tesla envision an era where robots or machines could think and make decisions independently of humans. He is also famous for predicting mechanical remote control. It is a remotely controlled boat containing basic equipment that later developed into a radio system, a robotic device, and a small AC gate, the latter of which can be called a prototype of the logic gates that are the basic circuitry of all computers.
Tesla’s predictions that reflect today’s society do not stop there. He also portrayed a future full of wireless systems and the connection of the world’s brains or minds through air waves. which is similar to today’s wireless internet and mobile technology.
Today, the rapid development of AI technology and the speed of internet connections make Tesla’s predictions seem more like factual conversations than predictions of future trends. The problem of today’s generation is how to use these things without being enslaved by the inventions based on the ideas of this 20th century genius.
