What is Artificial Intelligence?
We probably have all heard about robots replacing us humans in the far future. Although, we don’t know what is awaiting us in the far future what we do know is that artificial intelligence is the key factor. Artificial Intelligence is technology that is being developed by humans that can complete tasks that usually needs human intelligence to complete. Artificial Intelligence can use skills such as speech-recognition, decision-making, visual perception, and easily transition between a variety of different languages. Artificial Intelligence is basically a replica of human intelligence.
There are two types of AI:
• Narrow AI is known as weak AI. This type of AI is known to be limited and completes a single task efficiently.
o Examples of Narrow AI: Google search, Siri, Alexa, IBM’s Watson, Image recognition software.
• Artificial General Intelligence which is also called AGI, is known as the strong AI. It is a stronger replica of human intelligence. It uses human intelligence toreach a decision. It is much closer to a human being than narrow AI.
o AGI is still being researched. Researchers are working hard to make a breakthrough with AGI.
How is Artificial Intelligence being used today?
Artificial Intelligence is being used in different ways such as virtual assistants, cars and online.
