"It is the science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs. It is related to the similar task of using computers to understand human intelligence, but AI does not have to confine itself to methods that are biologically observable" - John McCarthy (Father of AI)
Artificial intelligence is known as AI, is the simulation of human thinking pattern or intelligence processed by computer systems, often termed as machine learning,( though there is some difference between two )
Artificial intelligence is the combination of science and technology based on multiple disciplines, here are some core pillars of AI
So we may focus on one or multiple areas depending on what type of Application we want to build using AI
As we know that in Artificial intelligence, we are trying to simulate human thinking in machine using different type of algorithm, so you may have an obvious question how much progress we have made so far! To give us a better understanding of progress, researchers (scientists) have classified AI milestones into different dimension
The concept of Superintelligence is that some day we may design and build machines that surpass the human intellect, (Superintelligence is just an imagination with real-time data and current study), some researchers believe and predict that at certain stage in future, machines will become smarter than human; that may happen in between 2060 and 2100, some scientists believe that will never happen.
General AI means that at some point a machine will have the same cognitive abilities as a human being. this state is also know as Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), Some researchers believe we will reach at that stage by 2050
Narrow AI also termed as Weak AI, Many current AI systems can be classified as narrow AI, and Narrow AI is a type of artificial intelligence where technology outperforms humans in some very narrowly defined task, narrow artificial intelligence focuses on a single subset of cognitive abilities and carryout the task more efficiently than human. Here are some Narrow AI applications we are using in our daily life.
Is Machine learning and AI is the same thing? Not exactly, machine learning is a subset of AI, you can say all machine learning (ML) is AI, but all AI is not machine learning, AI is the bigger picture, ML is one part of that.
Here are some lists of Narrow AI we are using in our daily life
Hope now you have rough understanding of different types of AI; I am sure you have many questions, please feel free to write us, we love to know how you think about AI, before we can start writing our first Weak AI we have to get familiar with following keywords of AI world
Let’s understand key components of AI and what type of application can be developed using AI
