In less than 50 years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will match humans traits like adaptability, creativity and emotional intelligence, an expert has predicted.

Speaking at the "Festival of Dangerous Ideas" at University of New South Wales in Sydney on Sunday, Professor Toby Walsh said AI will match human intelligence by 2062, media reported on Monday

"Toby Walsh, Scientia Professor of Artificial Intelligence at UNSW Sydney, has put a date on this looming reality.

"He considers 2062 the year that artificial intelligence will match human intelligence, although a fundamental shift has already occurred in the world as we know it," the university said in a statement.

Walsh argued that we are already experiencing the risks of AI that seem to be so far in the future.

"Even without machines that are very smart, I'm starting to get a little bit nervous about where it's going and the important choices we should be making", said Walsh who has written a book "2062: The World that AI Made".

The key challenge, according to him, will be to avoid the apocalyptic rhetoric of AI and to determine how to move forward in the new age of information.

Recently, search engine, Google has also pledged to give $25 million to launch Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology backed projects to solve societal problems.
