Summary/Abstract: The present study addressed the issue of artificial intelligence (AI) in connection with both technological and social dimensions. AI is intrinsicaly an interdisciplinary field covering engineering, natural sciences, mathematics and computer science, psychology, social science, science of communication, etc. Scientific research evolves rapidly and certain progress that fore shadows the emergence of technical systems trends to change people’s life style and even provide new models for human society. The impact of advanced research in traditional sub branches of AI, such as robotics and software engineering research is cur rently multiplied by deepest insights regarding artificial mind and building the artificial brain. These things sound challenging but also raise new problems and even some fears. AI is no longer just a game of imagination or a software paradigm simulators; it is found already incorporated in physical things created with noble purpose to make our lives better. The supertech clear trend will lead human society in a position to cooperate with increasingly intelligent systems, as intelligent as humans, perhaps superintelligent. Assuming that God will allow us to do that, still remains to answer a lot of questions on one major topic: How human society will live together with others artificial?
