AI- Seeing the Future!

We have heard this word many a times. Sci-fi movies are always quoting AI as if it’s a household word. Artificial Intelligence has interested scientists and enthusiasts for a long time now. Ever since mankind developed the computer, the ides of AI has taken root.

It would not be farfetched to assume that in a few decades artificial intelligence will be a large part of our lives. It already plays a significant role even today- just look at Siri or Cortana for example. These words are very familiar because we can ask them various questions and they probably answer them accurately.

Whenever we hear the words AI, our curiosity is piqued. So what’s all the fuss about? Artificial intelligence (AI) is the human-like intelligence exhibited by machines or software. . The AI field is interdisciplinary, in which a number of sciences and professions converge, including computer science, psychology, linguistics, philosophy and neuroscience, as well as other specialized fields such as artificial psychology.

John McCarthy, who coined the term in 1955, defines it as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines”. AI research is highly technical and specialized, and is deeply divided into subfields that often fail to communicate with each other.

Thinking machines and artificial beings appear in Greek myths, such as Talos of Crete, the bronze robot of Hephaestus, and Pygmalion’s Galatea. Human likenesses believed to have intelligence were built in every major civilization: animated cult images were worshiped in Egypt and Greece and humanoid automatons were built by Yan Shi, Hero of Alexandria and Al-Jazari. The field of AI research was founded at a conference on the campus of Dartmouth College in the summer of 1956.

The central problems (or goals) of AI research include reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, natural language processing (communication), perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects. The scope of Artificial Intelligence today is very vast. The ability to simulate intelligence can actually create an easier lifestyle for us.

It is not that fanciful these days to imagine intelligent vehicles, homes, gadgets and jewellery that know exactly what you need. The central tenet to all this is our definition of intelligence. At IntelligenceNODE, pun intended, we believe that AI will certainly change and evolve with our idea of intelligence…
