Does artificial intelligence run the planet?
No. Artificial Intelligence is far too primitive to do that. Human intelligence, often using sophisticated software tools that only seem intelligent, runs the planet. That "seem intelligent" is the key; AI is the new Philosopher's Stone, the eternally unobtainable Holy Grail.
However, the argument could be made that artificial people do run the planet or more accurately many little parts of the planet. Tune in to a couple hors of CSPAN and you'll see what I mean by artificial people.
No, but it is a developing technology. We do not yet possess artificial intelligence. Some people refer to expert systems--software designed to answer specific questions--as "artificial intelligence," but this is not true artificial intelligence. One test of artificial intelligence is known as the Turing Test, but this test is too restrictive. We will eventually develop artificial intelligence that cannot pass the Turing Test, before we develop AI that can.
The artificial passenger is a type of artificial intelligence. Artificial Intelligence is defined by Webster's as: 1 : a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers 2 : the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior. From that we can tell that any program that can strike up a conversation with a human (such as the artificial passenger) would be artificial intelligence. However, other things may also…
It all depends on your definition of smarter. However, a microprocessor does not have any recognized intelligence; it only performs activity. Artificial intelligence is software that has various methods to make independent decisions about specific interactions with the environment. A microprocessor can exist without artificial intelligence, but artificial intelligence can not exist without a microprocessor to execute instructions.
