Frequently Asked Questions About Artificial Intelligence
What is artificial intelligence?
Although several definitions have surfaced over the years for artificial intelligence, there are a few elements in these definitions that remain similar. According to Francois Chollet, an AI researcher at Google, intelligence is the ability and efficiency to learn new things or acquire new skills that were previously unknown or unprepared for. With that said, we can define AI as a machine's or computer system's ability to mimic or simulate human intelligence. This involves performing and improving on actions such as speech recognition, visual perception, translation between languages and decision-making.
Is AI really the future?
Since its founding in the 1950s, artificial intelligence has been applied in virtually all industries that affect our day to day lives. We have seen major improvements in the field over time that have made our lives easier and computers smarter, so to speak. Considering what we have seen in the past and the current trajectory the field is taking, there is no doubt that AI is here to stay and here to continue making our work and complex tasks easier.
