#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are terms which have been thrown around a lot in the tech industry over the last few years, but what exactly do they mean? Anyone vaguely familiar with sci-fi tropes will probably have an idea about AI, though they may view it as a little more sinister than what's around today.


Artificial Intelligence vs Machine Learning: what's the difference?

Artificial Intelligence. Do you know what AI can do for your business? - ITMAGINATION

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, Neural Networks … most of know these words. They're banded about as the'next big things' that promise to revolutionize the way you do business. This might well be true, but there are still many people that aren't aware of exactly what these technologies are, how they're already impacting our lives and how they have the potential to transform the way we do business. We know Siri and Alexa, the personal assistants by Apple (Siri) and Amazon (Alexa) to help us out in an increasing number of ways. Most of us know that these are AI-powered assistants, but few of us know about the thousands of algorithms, neural networks, random forests and gradient boosting that help make these assistants what they are and contribute to their growing sophistication and usefulness. Julia Medvid, Senior Client Partner at ITMAGINATION and Łukasz Dylewski, Head of Data Science, have extensive experience in introducing ITMAGINATION clients to AI and helping them to benefit from this game-changing technology.


The Problem With AI: Machines Are Learning Things, But Can't Understand Them

#artificialintelligence

But, whether you're looking at Siri, Alexa, or just the autocorrect features found in your smartphone keyboard, we aren't creating general purpose artificial intelligence. We're creating programs that can perform specific, narrow tasks. Whenever a company says it's coming out with a new "AI" feature, it generally means that the company is using machine learning to build a neural network. "Machine learning" is a technique that lets a machine "learn" how to better perform on a specific task. Machine learning is a fantastic technology with a lot of powerful uses.


Deep Learning Vs. Machine Learning: Not Quite the Same Thing Robots.net

Depending on whether you're a glass-half-full or half-empty type of person, the words "artificial intelligence", "machine learning" or "deep learning" can either conjure up a future in which humans are completely subject to their robot overlords, or an idyllic vision of sipping cocktails on sun loungers while algorithms do all the heavy lifting. Reality is, as usual, a bit more complex than science fiction would have us believe. No, you're not likely to be enslaved by your coffee machine anytime soon. Nor is it quite time to hand in your notice and head for the nearest sandy beach. Artificial intelligence is a concept that feels overwhelming to many.
