According to Gartner's survey of over 3,000 CIOs, Artificial intelligence (AI) was by far the most mentioned technology and takes the spot as the top game-changer technology away from data and analytics, which is now occupying a second place. AI is set to become the core of everything humans are going to be interacting with in the forthcoming years and beyond. Robots are programmable entities designed to carry out a series of tasks. When programmers embed human-like intelligence, behavior, emotions, and even when they engineer ethics into robots we say they create robots with an embedded Artificial Intelligence that is able to mimic any task a human can perform, including debating, as IBM showed earlier this year at CES Las Vegas. IBM has made a human-AI debate possible through its Project Debater, aimed at helping decision-makers make more informed decisions.
In this era of technology, artificial intelligence is conquering over all the industries and domains, performing tasks more effectively than humans. Like in sci-fi movies, a day will come when world would be dominated by robots. Artificial intelligence is surrounded by jargons like narrow, general, and super artificial intelligence or by machine learning, deep learning, supervised and unsupervised learning or neural networks and a whole lot of confusing terms. In this article, we will talk about artificial intelligence and its three main categories. The term AI was coined by John Mccarthy, an American computer scientist in 1956.
An ability to adapt to machine and learning to a machine is Artificial Intelligence, as described in brief. But artificial intelligence is more than we know and perceived to be. There are 3 types of artificial intelligence. Let's look at the first type of AI and broaden our knowledge about narrow artificial intelligence: Artificial Intelligence proved that technology could imitate the human brain and actions. Narrow artificial Intelligence or narrow AI is a specific technology that it can imitate the human action to accomplish a task, which is narrowly defined.
Artificial Intelligence or simply AI has absolutely been the buzz in the most recent era of technology. Humankind has been experiencing the impact of AI in solving real-world problems where humans can't interfere. Therefore, let's get started to know more. Before diving into the AI, we need to know the term intelligence. Humans have innate intelligence, that governs every activity in the human body.
Let's start at the beginning. Why do we even need this term? Over several decades of trying and failing (badly), the original vision was largely abandoned. Nowadays almost all AI work relates to narrow, domain-specific, human-designed capabilities. Powerful as these current applications may be, they are limited to their specific target domain, and have very narrow (if any) adaptation or interactive learning ability.
