What Is Artificial Intelligence(AI)?

Artificial intelligence leverages computers and machines to mimic the problem-solving and decision-making capabilities of the human mind. At its simplest form, artificial intelligence is a field, which combines computer science and robust datasets, to enable problem-solving. Deep learning and Machine learning are sub-fields of artificial intelligence, and deep learning is actually a sub-field of machine learning.

Importance of Artificial Intelligence

  • With the help of AI, you can create such software or devices which can solve real-world problems very easily and with accuracy such as health issues, marketing, traffic issues, etc.
  • With the help of AI, you can create your personal virtual Assistant, such as Cortana, Google Assistant, Siri, etc.
  • With the help of AI, you can build such Robots which can work in an environment where survival of humans can be at risk.
  • AI opens a path for other new technologies, new devices, and new Opportunities.

Goals of Artificial Intelligence

Following are the main goals of Artificial Intelligence:
  • 1. Replicate human intelligence.
  • 2. Solve Knowledge-intensive tasks.
  • 3. An intelligent connection of perception and action.
  • 4. Building a machine which can perform tasks that requires human intelligence such as:
    • a. Proving a theorem
    • b. Playing chess
    • c. Plan some surgical operation
    • d. Driving a car in traffic
  • 5. Creating some system which can exhibit intelligent behavior, learn new things by itself, demonstrate, explain, and can advise to its user.

Advantages of Artificial Intelligence

Following are some main advantages of Artificial Intelligence:

  • High Accuracy with less errors: AI machines or systems are prone to less errors and high accuracy as it takes decisions as per pre-experience or information.
  • High-Speed: AI systems can be of very high-speed and fast-decision making, because of that AI systems can beat a chess champion in the Chess game.
  • High reliability: AI machines are highly reliable and can perform the same action multiple times with high accuracy.
  • Useful for risky areas: AI machines can be helpful in situations such as defusing a bomb, exploring the ocean floor, where to employ a human can be risky.
  • Digital Assistant: AI can be very useful to provide digital assistant to the users such as AI technology is currently used by various E-commerce websites to show the products as per customer requirement.
  • Useful as a public utility: AI can be very useful for public utilities such as a self-driving car which can make our journey safer and hassle-free, facial recognition for security purpose, Natural language processing to communicate with the human in human-language, etc.
