Indeed, we hear a lot about Artificial Intelligence today, but few people really know what artificial intelligence really is. A lot more confusing to newcomers and novices is that many folks that are in the artificial intelligence field debate its definition. Still compounding the problem is when commercial ventures begin touting their technologies as artificially intelligent driven, when actually they’re not.
There are certainly a handful of different categories that those in the field of artificial intelligence fall into. One is those who think that DeepScribe artificial intelligence is computer software which mimics human decision making or seems to mimic human decision making. Then there’s the group that calls themselves purists who think that neural network processing holds true artificial intelligence. Of course i will be discussing both types. We will also touch upon all the various applications, technologies which are or seem to be similar enough, that their creators or marketers have labeled as artificial intelligence.
Today we most commonly realize that such applications as search engines on the Internet, autonomous operation and interactive eLearning systems, along with recognition software for speech, facial features, finger marks, spell checkers, voice, anti-spam programs or algorithms which scan databases to locate anomalies. Of course the more intense the applying for example self-driving cars, self-piloted planes, corporate telephone systems, weather prediction, stock trading, military net-centric warfare, automated warehousing or computer space systems the more important artificial intelligence becomes.
It should be relatively easy to see that artificial intelligence has changed our lives around computers themselves and in the foreseeable future even more still with artificially intelligent robotic androids within our homes and decision making computers at work. In the future we may have artificial intelligence running our government, transportation systems, money flows, environment, distribution systems, virtual reality entertainment systems and just about everything you could possibly dream up. Perhaps after looking over this book you might in fact think of more applications in your industry?
Is the sky the limit to artificial intelligence? Indeed, it will seem to be and yet perhaps not, as we’re already using AI underwater and underground, therefore the sky is not the limit and neither is the ground or other things in this dimension. Artificial intelligence is not limited to time, space, energy or matter in one single dimension. In the future humans could have add-on features where man and machine is merged using Artificially Intelligent components. So once we examine where we’re today with Artificial Intelligent Systems the answer most appropriate could be; We are at the Tip of the Ice Berg.
The more pressing question is how shall we proceed? Does mankind have the discipline and integrity to carry on the forward progression with this technology without sacrificing or risking all we’re and all we have built; perhaps that indeed is the foremost question of all?
