HUMAN – an Ai
This will give a new view on our existence itself and much clear understanding on what we
need to do.,
The new trending word on computer world these days is AI – Artificial intelligence
Ai – example Google’s AlphaGo
2016, Seoul – South Korea – World champion of the game GO (Mr Lee Sedol) compete with
an AI – Google’s Alpha Go. – Works based on Deep Learning that mimics the neural
networks of the human brain.
Go is ancient Chinese board game about 4000years old. Much more complex than the game
of Chess, Number of possible moves on this GO board is more than the number of atoms in
Scientists started of training AlphaGO by showing 100,000 games that strong amateurs have
played. At first it started to mimic those human players then through self-playing
reinforcement learning it plays against different versions of itself many millions of times and
learn from its errors!
And we remember the Quran verse which God says – Learn lessons from the history!
If we search there are about 34 places God mentioned about “Lesson” from past history,
10:92 “Today, we will preserve your body, to set you up as a lesson for future generations.”*
Unfortunately, many people are totally oblivious to our signs.
12:7 In Joseph and his brothers there are lessons for the seekers.
29:24 The only response from his people was their saying, “Kill him, or burn him.” But God
saved him from the fire. This should provide lessons for people who believe.
29:35 We left standing some of their ruins, to serve as a profound lesson for people who
Quran gives a lot of reminders from the history for example story of Moses, Abraham,
Joseph, Jesus and many more.. All these to give us lessons – what to do and what not to do
– to redeem our souls.
12:111 In Quran God advising us to learn from the past history –
In their history, there is a lesson for those who possess intelligence. This is not fabricated
Hadith; this (Quran) confirms all previous scriptures, provides the details of everything, and
is a beacon and mercy for those who believe.
And God made things much easy for us – as mentioned in 13:7, God says he sends “Guiding
teacher” to every community.
13:7 – Those who disbelieved say, “If only a miracle could come down to him from his
Lord (we will then believe).” You are simply a warner – every community receives a guiding
And in 2:97 – God says Quran is to provide “Guidance”
Say, “Anyone who opposes Gabriel should know that he has brought down this (Quran) into
your heart, in accordance with God’s will, confirming previous scriptures, and providing
guidance and good news for the believers.”
Alphago’s deep neural networks which essentially mimic the way the web of neurons in the
Big neural networks operate on big data can achieve surprising things!
3 main components of BNN (Big neural networks)
Policy network – trained on high level games to imitate those players,
Value network – evaluate the board position and what is the probability of winning
Tree search – Look through different variations of the game and try to figure out
what will happen in the future
Based on those 3 components AlphaGo learns to win the game.
As humans we simply need to apply Quran as our lead code and follow its rules to “Win”
here and hereafter!
Comparison – Human and Ai
Data Input – Being a human we “Learn” every day, from the time we came to this world. For
example we learn how to speak or how drive a bicycle. All these “DATA” we learned used for
different aspects of our life.
Same way scientists fed AlphaGo with “DATA” and let AlphaGo to learn itself.
16:78God brought you out of your mothers’ bellies knowing nothing, and He gave you the
hearing, the eyesight, and the brains, that you may be appreciative.
23:78He is the One who granted you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brains. Rarely are
32:9He shaped him and blew into him from His spirit. And He gave you the hearing, the
eyesight, and the brains; rarely are you thankful.
67:23Say, “He is the One who initiated you, and granted you the hearing, the eyes, and the
brains. Rarely are you appreciative.”
In above verses God particularly mentions – Hearing, eyesight and brains – If we think only
these 3 are our DATA INPUT gateways!
We learn from what we see and hear – And – brain plays major role in processing the data.
The same way AlphaGo fed with past DATA as input to learn.
Similarities – Human – Ai
Humans made of earthly material – Mud,
23:12 – We created the human being from a certain kind of mud.
The Computer Is The Creature*
27:82At the right time, we will produce for them a creature, made of earthly materials,
declaring that the people are not certain about our revelations.
The core component of Computer made of – Silicon.
If we learn lessons from past history – As AlphaGo’s Policy Network – analyses the past game
data, if we take right decisions from past mistakes – As AlphaGo Value Network – evaluating
possible winning strategy which it learnt from past data and its own game play.
Cross verifying our actions with Quranic values and teachings strictly – As AlphaGo Tree
search by validating the actions with what will happen in the future.
Alpha Go Follows its 3 rules without deviation and thus winning the game,
as we Humans and AI have many similarities – To win the “game” all we need is to be
obedient to God by following teachings of Quran.
Bonus thought on 40 years!
Even though I accepted the teaching on person who dies before the age 40 goes to heaven. Sometimes I used to question about this to myself when we see on news about death sentence or police encounter on rapist and the criminal dies before the age 40…
If we apply the above AlphaGo logic – With less data AlphaGo will not perform well or it cannot display how efficient it is, As for humans every day more and more data is being fed. Our decision is what to store and what not to. God is being most gracious gives humans 40years time and feeding us with a lot of data. Even after 40 if the human is taking wrong. decision then its pure failure. In human law we consider 18years plus is considered as adult. God is being most gracious in fact doubled it and set it as 40years! In 40years an average human will come across all phases of life. Education/learning, working, taking care of family, children…happiness and also sorrow. After experiencing all these – in other words after loading all those data – if WE – THE HUMAN Ai – making wrong decisions and moving away from God’s way then that Ai is not capable to win.
