Revolutionization of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized information technology; it creates intelligent computer systems that perform tasks without receiving instructions directly from humans.
In this digital age, AI has shaped the way we are living, it is seeping its way into our lives, affecting how we live, work and entertain ourselves. From voice-powered personal assistants like Siri and Alexa to more underlying and fundamental technologies such as behavioral algorithms, suggestive searches and autonomously-powered self-driving vehicles boasting powerful predictive capabilities, there are several examples and applications of artificial intelligence in use today.
Artificial Intelligence implementation can greatly enhance productivity in all aspect of life, but it can also be disruptive if not properly managed. Today, Artificial Intelligence technology allows non-living things like robots & computers to think for themselves to an extent.
Artificial Intelligence and Man
Artificial Neural Systems (ANS)
A neural network is an electronic model of the brain consisting of many interconnected simple processors. This imitates how your actual brain works. This system can be applied to Learning to read postcodes, Stock market prediction, Debt risk assessment etc. The Artificial neural systems do not need to be programmed to be able to learn, but the Setup time and money is a major disadvantage.
An intelligent robot has many different sensors, large processors, and a large memory in order to show that they have intelligence. The robots will learn from their mistakes and be able to adapt to any new situation that may arise. An intelligent robot can be programmed with its own expert system. These intelligent robots carry out many different tasks such as automated delivery in a factory, pipe inspection, bomb disposal, exploration of dangerous/unknown environments.
They have the advantage in that they work round the clock unlike human workers, more accurate, and safer than sending a human into dangerous places, example nuclear power stations.
Virtual Presence (Telemedicine)
This technology which is another aspect of AI, allows specialists to assist their patients who live at remote locations. Using a remote presence robot, doctors can engage with their staff and patients hospitals and clinics & assist them.
Artificial Intelligence in Aviation
Algorithms are learning to predict delays, giving airports and airlines a better shot at avoiding them. In 2015, Boeing and Carnegie Mellon University launched the Aerospace Data Analytics Lab, this will use machine learning to turn data into meaningful information. According to project leader CMU Jaime Carbonell,“Every aircraft now has thousands of sensors, each of which generates readings about once per second, “That’s creating vast quantities of data that overwhelms any analytical strategy we now have. So we’re developing scalable algorithms that process it in the cloud. Everything from safety and predictive maintenance to in-flight performance characteristics and the aging of the aircraft can then be better tracked and understood.” This could help Boeing and its airline customers develop monitoring, maintenance, and operational strategies that will limit downtime and save money in the air.
