What is Artificial Intelligence:
Artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by
machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals. According to
the father of Artificial Intelligence, John McCarthy, it is “The science and engineering of making
intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs”.It is the way of making a computer, a
robot, or a software think intelligently, in the similar manner the intelligent
AI is accomplished by studying how human brain thinks, and how humans learn, decide, and work
while trying to solve a problem, and then using the outcomes of this study as a basis of developing
intelligent software and systems.
Applications of Artificial Intelligence:
- Self driving cars
Have you ever heard of cars that drive without a driver, that are only guided by artificial
intelligence technologies and automatic learning .Tesla was one of the first automotive brands
to launch a self-driving vehicle, and Audi, Cadillac, and Volvo are already developing their own
- The fortuneteller that will know it before you
Predictive Analysis is possible through AI. Predictive analytics is the use of data, statistical
algorithms and machine learning techniques to identify the likelihood of future outcomes based
on historical data. The goal is to go beyond knowing what has happened to providing a best
assessment of what will happen in the future.
- Intelligent Robots
Robots are able to perform the tasks given by a human. They have sensors
to detect physical data from the real world such as light, heat, temperature, movement, sound,
bump, and pressure. They have efficient processors, multiple sensors and huge memory, to
exhibit intelligence. In addition, they are capable of learning from their mistakes and they can
adapt to the new environment.
- Speech Recognition
Some intelligent systems are capable of hearing and comprehending the
language in terms of sentences and their meanings while a human talks to it. It can handle
different accents, slang words, noise in the background, change in human’s noise due to cold,
AI plays crucial role in strategic games such as chess, poker, tictactoe,
machine can think of large number of possible positions based on heuristic knowledge.
