Artificial Intelligence is a simulation of human intelligence processes of machines, specifically computer systems. These processes include learning (learning information and rules for use of information), explanation and autonomy. It is very important which methods are used in programming autonomous machines to be as functional and executable as possible. Throughout history we see progress in the development of the field of artificial intelligence, there is especially the emphasis on neural networks that were initially the basis for the programming of the artificial intelligence system, and they still are today. Special applications of artificial intelligence include expert systems, speech and face recognition.Some experts are concerned with the theory of strong artificial intelligence that there is a possibility that machines will eventually develop their own thinking and self-consciousness, while most academic communities believe that such a development is impossible because people are those who program machines. It raises the question of how will artificial intelligence affect modern society, in which areas will it perform and how will individuals accept it. Through few examples, we will see what are current standpoints and opinions about such progress, from the perspective of scientists and laymen. It is also important to deal with questions of morality and ethics, in what way will we be able to regulate any kind of abuse or manipulation by artificial intelligence.
