Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Artificial Intelligence is “a core, transformative way by which we’re rethinking how we’re doing everything” – Google CEO Sundar Pinchai
The development and daily applications of artificial intelligence have become a mainstay in our everyday lives. More than a thing of science fiction, it’s become a field of real-world dreamers making dreams come true.
The surge of innovation pulsing through the tech community has followed the growth of systems that perform complex activities that we can only compare with “thinking.” They are thinking systems. These activities include problem solving, speech recognition, sensory perception, learning and reasoning, among other things that we previously only associated with mankind.
Generally speaking, the capabilities considered to fall under “artificial intelligence” today include any number of experimental and even consumer technologies like speech recognition programs, autonomous cars, and intelligent routing systems in military technology.
In other words, computers displaying a high level of intelligence can perceive their environment and take action accordingly.
Artificial intelligence is everywhere, making a bigger difference in our everyday lives than you might realize. We use smart phones, we drive smart cars, we wear smart watches, we consume ads online, we have conversations with Alexa—you feed the machine with data, and it justifies that data into improved function and action over time.
