The Scope and Significance Of AI

AI, Artificial Intelligence Programming is an area of computer science and engineering that demonstrates the creation of intelligent machines that precisely work and react like humans. In simple words, an AI powered system is an intelligent computer programmed system which can do human-based tasks as well as think like a human brain.

After rapid innovation now AI has become more popular due to advanced algorithms, increased data volumes, improvements in computing power, memory and store. Today’s AI Technology advancement is not smart to its full capacity, but it’s surpassing and has started  providing a large array of specific advantages in many industries. Some industries that started using AI technologies – Healthcare, Online retail stores, manufacturing, sports, Journalism, Entertainment, Automobiles, Baking & Finance, Online customer service, home appliances, and smartphones of course.

AI is nothing without what makes it this powerful and robust and the core elements of AI are developing on their own with the more diverse amount of data and computing experience Here are the pillars on which AI thrives:

  • Learning. 
  • Reasoning.
  • Problem-solving. 
  • Perception. 
  • Language-understanding.

The three dynamic types of AI:

  • Weak AI (Narrow AI)- This is like basic intelligence with limited abilities
  • Strong AI (Artificial General Intelligence {AGI})- The artificial intelligence here is at par with human abilities.
  • Super Intelligent- Artificial intelligence type that has abilities beyond the possibility of humans.

Will AI control the globe?

AI hasn’t reached its optimum power yet. There is a high scope of AI in developing machines in robotics, computer vision, language detection, game playing, expert systems, speech recognition and much more.But the prediction is that AI will progress immensely beyond human abilities in the span of the next four decades . They are on the verge of having a human lifestyle and creating a heavy impact on us as well.

Here are some predictions on the scope of AI:

  • Robots will befriend and also challenge.
  • Will take labor work, skilled manual work and increase unemployment or progress in the ECONOMY.
  • Will become new age digital employees.
  • Complete tedious tasks for humans effortlessly.
  • Will take transportation to a new level
  • Improve the quality of life and introduce smart living
  • Will enable learning without a teacher
  • Harness critical thinking and creativity
  • Will render a better performance or outperform
  • Will provide the best business solutions and determine the company’s profits
  • Easy to accept but expensive to maintain

AI is still in its infancy and has now started getting into every nook and cranny of day-to-day life in the economy.Whether it will be a blessing or a curse , only time will tell! In conclusion, AI should be controlled by us and not vice-versa.

“ AI is the simulation of human intelligence into machines , enabling them to work like humans and think like them. It makes a machine exhibit traits of a human mind like learning and problem solving also performing tasks.
