Indeed, we hear a lot about Artificial Intelligence today, but few people really know what artificial intelligence really is. A lot more confusing to newcomers and novices is that numerous folks which are in the artificial intelligence field debate its definition. Still compounding the issue is when commercial ventures begin touting their technologies as artificially intelligent driven, when actually they are not.
There are a number of different categories that those in the field of artificial intelligence fall into. One is those that believe that DeepScribe artificial intelligence is computer software which mimics human decision making or appears to mimic human decision making. Then there is the group that calls themselves purists who believe that neural network processing is true artificial intelligence. Needless to say we are discussing both types. We will even touch upon all the various applications, technologies which are or appear to be similar enough, that their creators or marketers have labeled as artificial intelligence.
Today we most commonly realize that such applications as search engines on the Internet, autonomous operation and interactive eLearning systems, as well as recognition software for speech, facial features, finger marks, spell checkers, voice, anti-spam programs or algorithms which scan databases to locate anomalies. Needless to say the more intense the application form for example self-driving cars, self-piloted planes, corporate telephone systems, weather prediction, stock trading, military net-centric warfare, automated warehousing or computer space systems the more important artificial intelligence becomes.
It must be relatively obvious that artificial intelligence has changed our lives around computers themselves and in the foreseeable future a lot more still with artificially intelligent robotic androids within our homes and decision making computers at work. In the foreseeable future we may have artificial intelligence running our government, transportation systems, money flows, environment, distribution systems, virtual reality entertainment systems and almost everything you could possibly dream up. Perhaps after scanning this book you might in fact consider more applications in your industry?
Could be the sky the limit to artificial intelligence? Indeed, it does appear to be and yet perhaps not, as we are already using AI underwater and underground, therefore the sky is not the limit and neither is the floor or other things in this dimension. Artificial intelligence is not even limited by time, space, energy or matter in one single dimension. In the foreseeable future humans might have add-on features where man and machine is merged using Artificially Intelligent components. So once we examine where we are today with Artificial Intelligent Systems the answer most appropriate could be; We’re at the Tip of the Ice Berg.
The more pressing question is how shall we proceed? Does mankind have the discipline and integrity to continue the forward progression of this technology without sacrificing or risking all we are and all we’ve built; perhaps that indeed is the better question of?
