Artificial Intelligence in Action

Artificial intelligence, also called artificial intelligence, is the capacity to execute programs in the presence of humans and other agents. This article will highlight the current status of this technology as well as potential applications for the future. It is important to distinguish between machine intelligence, super intelligence and artificially intelligent systems.

Artificial intelligence is the ability to execute programs in the presence of humans and other agents, whereas the human-like and animal-like intelligence displays human consciousness and emotional state. The difference between the two categories can be revealed with the acronym used. Alpha is used when a system is built to perform one specific task, whereas an artificial narrow AI is able to perform a diverse range of tasks including speech recognition, pattern recognition, decision making and problem solving. Super intelligence on the other hand is defined as being able to perform all these tasks and is considered to be a higher form of artificial intelligence.

Machines are not fully programmed to understand all that is there to teach them, as well as all the reasoning processes and emotions. A machine can be programmed to perform a task, but a human can reason and learn along the way. A machine may be programmed to perform certain tasks, but humans can modify the program if they wish to perform a different task. AI however is not fully programmed; rather it is a tool that can be changed and personalize over time. Even though this may seem scary at first, it is the potential of artificially intelligent machines to create better products and serve more people by providing them with better services, that is the biggest fear of many people.
