Artificial Intelligence: Emerging Technologies

13 Dec 2022, 05:24 GMT+10

Welcome to Emerging Technologies, a new blog from Matic Academy that focuses on a certain technology's significance and effects.

What exactly is AI?

Artificial Intelligence refers to the capacity of computers and software to do tasks that would normally need human intelligence. Included are reasoning and logic. Siri, Cortana, and Alexa are instances of artificial intelligence. They are virtual assistants capable of conversing with their users, understanding speech, providing intelligent responses, and occasionally being humorous.

Machine learning is a subfield of artificial intelligence that refers to the capacity of computers to comprehend new data without human intervention. On the other hand, deep learning is learning from huge volumes of data, such as sounds, pictures, and text. These types of learning enable AI to adapt to new data formats, which may apply in various sectors.

In recent years, AI has become progressively more advanced and intelligent. In 2017, a Google-developed AI defeated the global Go champion. Go is a strategy game comparable to chess but several times more difficult. However, we may still assert that humans are the most intelligent species. AI may be better at board games than humans, but it cannot hold abstract or philosophical concepts. Computers cannot contemplate art or compose heartfelt poetry. Yet.

Some believe that artificial intelligence will one day be able to usurp humanity. Others, however, are more skeptical. Nonetheless, AI is evolving at an exponential rate. It can now, among other things, recognize human features, play Pokemon, and solve mathematical equations. These are categorized as weak AI capable of doing only a few specific jobs. Strong AI, on the other hand, is capable of human-like reasoning and decision-making, such as self-driving car AI. One day, we may even construct robots la Isaac Asimov.

Implementation of Artificial Intelligence
AI is utilized in numerous fields and a variety of ways. AI achieves learning through algorithmic processes. These rules instruct an AI on what to do and are crucial to its operation. In addition, algorithms enable AI to examine vast amounts of data rapidly and make swift, error-free decisions. As a result, AI has been utilized in operating rooms.

Surgical robots with greater agility and precision than human hands are used during robot-assisted operations. In addition, AI is utilized in medical diagnosis and imaging.

Robots are also utilized in the industrial and manufacturing sectors because AI can work faster, does not need breaks, and is not compensated with money. Thus, it is a cost-cutting approach being implemented by numerous industries. BMW has recently implemented AI picture recognition for quality control and defect elimination.

Artificial Intelligence is also employed in finance since it can accurately identify hazards based on historical trends. AI minimizes the likelihood of human error and removes mundane chores. Additionally, AI makes it simple to give customer assistance.

These are only some of the professional applications of artificial intelligence. In the future years, Artificial Intelligence will be ubiquitous in every field and business and will be the norm.

Cooperation is essential for emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence: Benefits and Drawbacks
As previously said, Artificial Intelligence excels at detail-oriented tasks and decreases human mistakes. Additionally, it analyses data more quickly and is accessible 24/7. AI automates mundane and repetitive jobs, reducing the workload of its human counterparts. For instance, several banks utilize AI to expedite document verification for loans and similar tasks.

Nevertheless, AI has several downsides. It is pricey and requires ongoing management by professionals. In addition, it lacks human warmth and cannot think creatively since it lacks self-awareness.

There is also the chance that AI could lead to widespread unemployment by eliminating jobs. There is also the possibility that AI will gain self-awareness and escape human control. At first look, this may appear to be the plot of a science fiction novel. In Frank Herbert's Dune, for instance, humans and machines nearly annihilate one another in an interstellar conflict. Nonetheless, this is a valid worry. Even Stephen Hawkings has predicted that artificial intelligence could herald the end of human civilization.

Artificial Intelligence has a variety of benefits and drawbacks. Despite this, no one disputes AI's significance in molding our future.
