How many times have you heard the word artificial intelligence without knowing what it actually means? If you are still unable to comprehend its actual meaning, let us simplify it for you. Artificial intelligence is the ability of machines to act or replicate reactions of a human brain. It allows Machines or robots to make decisions and perform actions that generally require human intelligence. It is an amalgamation of human intelligence and the power of a machine. With these qualities artificial intelligence is deemed to be the future of the world.
Evolution of AI:
If you’ve read Frankenstein, then you might think that the idea of artificial intelligence began two centuries ago. You are correct as far as the idea goes, but it was not until the 1950s the discussion around this idea of artificial intelligence culminated into something material. However, owing to the lack of requisite technology the concept was not explored after the 1980s. In the 21st century the researchers picked up the remains of what was left in artificial intelligence and started anew.
What’s in the future:
With the onset of new computing technologies and algorithms artificial intelligence is being developed and used widely. Technology has opened numerous possibilities and endless opportunities. However there are a plethora of people who are still sceptical about what technology can do for the betterment of human civilization. Some still believe that it might take over our world and snatch the job of millions. This conspiracy theory is far from the actual truth. Development in artificial intelligence will open up new doors of possibilities. Its scope will not only be limited to driverless cars but unprecedented advances can be made in Medical technology with the help of artificial intelligence.
Machine Learning and AI:
Machine learning is one important facet of artificial intelligence. It is the ability of a machine to learn from the data already available. It helps make machines make non programmed decisions, by using the data available in previously made programmed decisions.
Deep Learning and AI:
It is also similar to machine learning and it helps in interpreting data to mimic the working of a human brain. Unlike machine learning it uses algorithms that are hierarchical and complex. The programs using deep learning have access to a gargantuan amount of data that provides a higher level of accuracy.
Contrary to popular belief, artificial intelligence is a boon for human society. From increasing employment to making human lives more convenient, artificial intelligence is the science of the future. It has enhanced the level of human productivity and provided a plethora of opportunities to make progress in diverse niches connected our society.
