The goals of artificial intelligence is to be able to reason, gain knowledge, plan, learn, communicate, percept the changes if any and be able to move and manipulate the objects. The long-term goal is to include general intelligence.
Some of the tools used for artificial intelligence are logic, mathematical optimization and methods that are based on economics and probability. Artificial intelligence uses computer science with mathematics, psychology, linguistics, philosophy, artificial psychology and neuroscience.
Real advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning have been the reason behind the growth of autonomous things like self-driving cars and drones. It’s because of artificial intelligence that there has been innovation in the automotive industry.
Artificial intelligence holds the power to transform the society. With the help of artificial intelligence, machines can sense, reason and act which can accelerate solutions, on a very large scale, to the problems in the fields of science, finance, education, medicine etc.
Everyday Activities: Whether it is Apple’s Siri or Google Now, we are using some form of artificial intelligence every single day. It can tell you your nearest Asian food restaurant, the need to carry an umbrella to work, set reminders to call and much more.
World of Gaming: AI gives each game character the ability to find enemies, think of strategies to survive, to take cover and to communicate with colleagues.
Automobiles: Google’s self driving is known to have an algorithm that helps it learn by experience and drive, just the way humans do. Though it has only undergone a pilot run, it has made commendable progress.
Detectives: The growing number of cyber crimes, is leading banks to get more cautious. Computers are given samples of fraudulent transactions and are asked to watch out for similar patterns in existing client accounts. Clients are sent warnings of fraud in case of unusual activity.
