Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence is demonstrated by machines, as opposed to the natural intelligence displayed by animals including humans. AI can be termed as a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of achieving its goals. AI’s are also described as a mimic of the “cognitive” functions that humans associate with the human mind, such as “learning” and “problem-solving”, however, this definition is rejected by the major AI researchers.

AI (Artificial Intelligence) applications include advanced web search engines, recommendation systems, understanding human speech, self-driving cars, automated decision-making, and completing the highest level in strategic game systems. As machines become increasingly capable, tasks considered to require “intelligence” are often removed from the definition of AI, a phenomenon known as the AI effect.

Artificial intelligence was founded as an academic discipline in 1956, and in years since has experienced several waves of optimism. At present, there are several AI’s present around us, and it has helped very greatly with our daily life routine. For example, if we look up for AI in the field of modern mobile technology, we can find that big search engines such as GOOGLE has their own Artificial Intelligence, the Google Assistant can recognize and differentiate between people’s voices and execute the specific commands that it receives as a voice input from the user.

It can also be seen in the recent 21st century’s successful company Tesla’s self-driving vehicles. These vehicles can drive themselves without the need for human intervention and can operate 24/7 which has proven a useful asset in the long run. There are so many out there, we just know a few of the names. As we speak of AI, we can picture them as another person that can talk equally on par with humans.

Artificial Intelligence is seen as a great help to human civilization, but on the other side, there are many, who still do not trust AI’s and question its limitations. As we know that an AI is not a natural intelligence and is made artificially with the help of certain programs and programming languages, based on it, an AI can be made to harm others in certain ways if not supervised carefully upon. There are several science-fiction writers who have pictured the future of AI in our day-to-day lives.

A good example would be the WALL-E, an American computer-animated science-fiction film from 2008. However, there are several other movies and films as well. Humanity has yet to reach the full potential of AI.
