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 lots of folks that are in the artificial intelligence field debate its definition. Still compounding the problem is when commercial ventures begin touting their technologies as artificially intelligent driven, when actually they are not.
There are certainly a handful of different categories that those in the field of artificial intelligence fall into. One is people who think that 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 think that neural network processing is true artificial intelligence. Of course we will be discussing both types. We may also touch upon all the various applications, technologies which are or seem to be similar enough, that their creators or marketers have labeled as artificial intelligence.
Today we most commonly discover that such applications as search engines on the Internet, autonomous operation and interactive eLearning systems, along with recognition software for speech, facial features, finger marks, spell checkers, voice, anti-spam programs or algorithms which scan databases to find anomalies. Of course the more intense the applying 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 easy to see that artificial intelligence has changed our lives around computers themselves and as time goes on much more still with artificially intelligent robotic androids within our homes and decision making computers at work. In the future we can have artificial intelligence running our government, transportation systems, inteligencia artificial en mexico money flows, environment, distribution systems, virtual reality entertainment systems and just about everything you might dream up. Perhaps after scanning this book you could in fact think of more applications in your industry?
Is the sky the limit to artificial intelligence? Indeed, it does seem to be and yet perhaps not, as we are already using AI underwater and underground, which means sky isn’t the limit and neither is the ground or anything else in this dimension. Artificial intelligence is not really restricted to time, space, energy or matter in one dimension. In the future humans could 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 clear answer most appropriate would be; We are at the Tip of the Ice Berg.
The more pressing question is how shall we proceed? Does mankind have the discipline and integrity to keep the forward progression with this technology without sacrificing or risking all we are and all we have built; perhaps that indeed is the foremost question of most?
