Today, there is a huge amount of hype in the world of AI and it is already being seen as a major tool in many fields. Driverless car technology is well advanced and in some countries, notably China, AI research and development is booming.
Millions of people use Alexa to turn the lights on or receive targeted online information. Alexa is believed to have around 3,000 skills already, which is pretty impressive for an AI application. Chatbots are also becoming increasingly common in the online world. IBM is using chatbots to revolutionize the HR sector. Chatbots are also very common in the e-commerce field, where they personalize our shopping experience and answer any niggling questions we might have while we shop online. Many tech companies are exploring the use of AI as a tool. Indeed, successful entrepreneurs such as Gurbaksh Chahal are looking for the next big breakthrough in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
If you remember the Terminator movies, you will recall how the Skynet computer took over the world and sought to annihilate humankind. This may sound a bit far-fetched, but machine learning is an exciting field of exploration right now. AlphaGo is a great example of how machines can be programmed to learn. The moment AlphaGo beat the world’s greatest human Go player, marked an exciting development in the field of AI. It proved that AI had the capability learn without explicit instructions or examples. All it needed was a large and complex neural network. Animals and humans learn from experience. We perform tasks and make decisions based on the outcome. If a pan is hot, we don’t touch it again. Computers can learn in a similar fashion and scientists are developing computers that learn instinctively from data and complex algorithms to produce new and more intelligent applications. […]
