Since the term artificial intelligence surfaced, there has always been a hype about whether or not it should be promoted. It is not uncommon to witness its debate over the internet. Those Sci-fi movies that have fuelled the already lit fire have played a tremendous role in projecting in everyone’s mind that artificial intelligence should never be supported. But this is not true, just like a coin has two sides, everything has got a dark and bright side, and as for how it becomes dark depends on the person who uses it.
Human intelligence is a mix of knowledge, education, thought, problem-solving, and knowing the language. Artificial Intelligence is the word used for machines that may match human intelligence in the following years. Science has made progress but hasn’t reached the point where one couldn’t differentiate between a human and a computer.
John McCarthy outlines artificial intelligence as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines.”
Artificial Intelligence is also known as machine intelligence. When someone asks you about what artificial intelligence is, tell them it is simple. After breaking down the complex definition into a simple meaning, artificial intelligence means any technique or method that lets a computer imitate human behavior.
In other words, AI is a system’s capacity to accurately translate external data, acquire from such data, and to use that knowledge to accomplish particular objectives and responsibilities through compliance.
In this technologically advanced era, AI systems have endured a resurgence following collective progress in computer power, Big data, and theoretical understanding; and AI techniques have become an indispensable part of the industry, assisting to solve many challenging problems in software engineering, computer science, etc.
Scientists are very hopeful that they will soon discover a better technology that understands the environment and learns from it. It has got emotions like happiness, rage, anxiety, etc. just like humans beings. Keeping in mind, the advantages one must also think about the disadvantages. It may sound cool when you think about a robotic slave who will do anything that you instruct, solve issues, and give emotional support.
But this technology does have advantages and limitations. We are discussing all the possible pros and cons of Artificial Intelligence technology.
The idea of artificial intelligence first clicked in the mind of an English scientist Alan M Turing, in the year 1950. He introduced a theory in which a human and machine are allowed to communicate with each other. During the experiment, both the parties interact through a computer and not in person. The medium of communication can be anything like texting, calling, etc. After the experiment, if the human is unable to identify the machine, then the machine wins the test. This is known as the Turing test. Turing predicted that by the year 2000, this was going to be possible practically. Today, it is possible to chat with an AI that is designed by programmers. There are several other applications as well that we are going to discuss below.
Robotic radio-surgery is done for tumor patients in which the unwanted tissues are destroyed without affecting the healthy ones in the surrounding. Also, medical students can learn how to perform a surgery with the help of surgery simulators without actually attending the lectures.
Industries that need goods to be taken from one place to another use machines since it would be wearying for humans. The bulky goods cannot be carried by humans since they have limited strength. Those tasks which are to be done over and over again like climbing complex locations are done by machines. This avoids dangerous situations like injuries and deaths.
Although human pilots are still there to operate the passenger planes, there are situations like weather conditions, darkness, heavy air traffic, in which humans are unable to perform precisely. In such scenarios, Artificial intelligence plays a vital role. Also, there is an option of “auto-pilot” that takes custody of the plane when the pilot leaves his seat. There are busy airports in the world that handle nearly 2500 planes at a time on the arriving surface. Artificial Intelligence has to take part in this case as well to monitor the position of the other planes, else enormous collision would occur if relied on the human brain.
For security purposes, this is important for the computer to recognize an individual’s voice, face, handwriting, etc. This is needed in case of highly sensitive information that needs to be kept confidential. Such applications exist today and are serving well.
You may have observed when you play a video game against the artificial competitor.
Whenever we call the customer care service, we often hear a computerized voice that directs us to press several buttons on our phone to get information about specific details or assistance. This is also the artificial intelligence functionality that is being used by most organizations.
This is a concept in which the real surroundings are seen as it is with the additional modifications that are virtual and have no actual existence. For instance, through AR devices like Google glass, one can see the house (real) along with its owner’s name (augmented reality) and the exact street address. An individual can recognize everyone’s identity through this application.
This is the most crucial part if you own an organization and a website since it gives the details of your firm through the internet whenever a user searches for something that covers your field of sales. Your website must be given the highest priority of all the results. You need to follow the basic rules of SEO, and the search engine would deliver your website in front of end-users. This is accomplished by a set of complicated algorithms with the idea of none other than artificial intelligence only.
Have you wondered how Facebook recognizes your face from the photos you add?
Yes, you got it right!
The technology behind this miracle is artificial intelligence.
HDFC Bank has a chatbot called EVA (Electronic Virtual Assistant), which interacts with the customers regarding their queries.
To give more examples of artificial intelligence around us are, Siri, Alexa, Ok Google, Cortana, etc. all these are the technologies that interact with us.
The predictive texts or words we get when we type something is because of artificial intelligence, they complete the word or sentence for us. Predictive searches also act in the same way, and it is none other than artificial intelligence playing around.
The google map in which we depend on works with artificial intelligence. When the map is showing the traffic and construction works that are ahead of us, it is the artificial intelligence that really shows us this through google map.
Scientists are still working on many projects to make everyone’s life easier. They are hopeful that one day the Artificial Intelligence will resemble a human brain. There are some kinds of tasks that only humans are fitted to do. Maybe something which involves sentiments, sometimes something that requires an artistic touch. Technology is advancing in a very fast, so like the scientist’s hope, we can also keep our fingers crossed to get a more strong technological advancement.
