Have you ever thought about why or when you are called intelligent? One can safely say that you have. Even if not, here are some of the situations in which you would feel proud of your intelligence:
But what exactly is intelligence?
Intelligence is the ability to
- Perceive, understand and analyze information.
- Learn and increase knowledge.
- Make decisions based on knowledge.
Artificial intelligence is the ability of a machine to think, understand, and learn like human beings.
A computer is termed as intelligent if it has the ability for gathering information, analyzing it to make decisions, and acting to complete a task automatically with very little to no human intervention.
There are many advantages that an AI machine has over humans. Some of them are:
AI has many applications, which continue to grow by the day. Some of them are:
AI is used in many popular object recognition systems like self-driving cars, security systems, industrial robots, etc. In this example, the robot identifies the position of the pancakes and segregate them using a robotic arm.
AI is widely used to detect and recognize faces from images. Facebook uses it to identify people in photos and tag them.
AI plays an important role in helping a machine think of a large number of possible positions based on deep knowledge in strategic games such as chess or PUBG. An AI system called AlphaZero taught itself from scratch how to master the games of Chess, Shogi, and Go.
Machine or software that imitates the decision-making ability of humans and uses it to provide explanations and advice to the users, e.g. Youtube uses it to recommend you new videos.
Some AI-based speech recognition systems can ‘hear’ others, ‘express’ in the form of speech and understand what a person tells it, e.g., Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant.
The handwriting recognition software reads the text written on paper and recognizes the shape of the letters and converts them into editable text.
These robots can perform the instructions given by a human in an interactive manner.
In the next topic, we’ll use artificial intelligence to make an expression detector using Quarky. Let’s get to it!
