Understanding Artificial Intelligence In Our World Today

Artificial Intelligence – Machines That Think

Are you aware that we are now at the age of Artificial Intelligence? You know, HAL 9000 and Marvin the Paranoid Android? Thanks to Books and Movies, several people have created their own fantasy land, a world of robots enslaved by men and possibly the other way around.

If we are now at the age of AI, where are all those robots, flying cars, elaborate and futuristic structures. Well, when we mean AI, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we live a life like the Jetson’s or the futuristic Robinsons. Although our world today does not really look like what had been pictured in sci-fi movies, we are actually already dealing with artificial intelligence. In fact European dedicated servers are hosting various new applications that are actually designed for its specific use – perhaps another form of artificial intelligence.

Just as you pick your phone to dial for a pizza delivery, you could have been greeted by an automated voice machine, this alone is an example of AI. These machines had been programmed to serve callers, and thus you are already interacting with an AI. The design of artificial intelligence is complicated that even us humans are not able to differ AI from real human voice. But one thing is for sure, robotics and artificial intelligence are currently making changes to the world that we know today.

In basic terms, AI is a broad area of computer science that makes machine seem like they have human intelligence. So it’s not only programming a computer to drive a car by obeying a traffic signals, but it’s when that program also learns to exhibit signs of human-like road rage. As intimidating as it may seem, this technology isn’t new. Actually, for the past half-a-century, it’s been an idea ahead of its time.

What is Artificial Intelligence

Tracing the roots of Artificial Intelligence

The term “artificial intelligence” was first coined back in 1956 by Dartmouth professor John McCarthy. He called a group of mathematicians and computer scientists to test if machines could actually learn like a young child. Trial and error had been used to build formal reasoning. The project proposal states that the team will find out ways to make machines have some kind of language to interpret concepts, solve problems, and develop intelligence almost similar to humans.

During the past few years, a few factors have led AI to become the next “big” thing. Data is one of the factors that pushes artificial intelligence forward. Thanks to technology, large data are actually being created every minute. Computers are now able to process all these information more quickly. Tech giants and capitalists are using these data to develop new applications that proves useful in the market.

It’s not too long that AI will become more intelligent and a little less artificial. When it comes to AI, a robot is just one but it goes beyond the shell that covers what really powers the bot itself. That means AI can manifest itself in many different ways.
