What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the study of how to produce machines that have some of the qualities that the human mind has, such as the ability to understand language, recognize pictures, solve problems, and learn.
(Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary & Thesaurus)
In simple words, these machines can learn and simulate human intelligence: think like humans and mimic their actions to achieve a specific goal. For this, AI has three cognitive skills:

  • Reasoning. The ability to choose the right algorithm to reach the desired result.
  • Self-correction. Automatically fix the algorithms to provide the most accurate results.
  • Learning. Collecting and processing data for further usage and decisions making.

Thanks to «The Terminator» and «I, Robot» movies, there are concerns about the consequences of AI learning and decision-making abilities.

But don’t worry, AI-powered apps we use today are safe… at least for now????

For example, there are three brilliant AI solutions that we are using today, marketing machine learning as a present thing — not the future.

  • Siri is the Apple personal assistant on iPhone and iPad. This voice-activated assistant helps find information, get directions, send messages, make voice calls, open applications, and add events to the calendar.
  • Tesla. In addition to many accolades it has achieved, tesla also has features like self-driving, predictive capabilities, and absolute technological innovation.
  • Netflix's service uses predictive technology to offer recommendations based on consumers' reactions, interests, choices, and behavior. The technology examines many records to recommend movies based on your previous liking and responses.
