Every day a large portion of the population is at the mercy of a rising technology if you actually understand what it is artificial intelligence you know Hal 9000 and Marvin the Paranoid Android thanks to books and movies each generation has formed its own fantasy of a world ruled or at least served by robots we’ve been conditioned to expect flying cars that steer clear of traffic and robotic made swimming up our weekday dinner but if the age of . AI is here why not our lives look more like the Jetsons well for starters that’s a cartoon and really if you’ve ever browsed Netflix movie suggestions or told Alexa to order a pizza you’re probably interacting with artificial intelligence more than you realize and that’s kind of the point .AI is designed so you don’t realize there’s a computer calling the shots but that also makes understanding what a is and what it’s not a little complicated in basic terms a AI is a broad area of computer science that makes machines seem like they have human intelligence so it’s not only programming a computer to drive a car by obeying traffic signals but it’s when that program also learns to exhibit signs of human like road rage as intimidating as it may seem this technology isn’t new actually for the past half a century it’s been an idea ahead of its time the term artificial intelligence was first coined back in 1956 by Dartmouth professor ,John McCarthy he called together a group of computer scientists and mathematicians to see if machines could learn like a young child does using trial and error to develop formal reasoning .The project proposal says they’ll figure out how to make machines use language form abstractions and concepts solve kinds of problems now reserved for humans and improve themselves that was more than 60 years ago since then AI has remained for the most part in university classrooms and super-secret labs but that’s changing like all exponential curves it’s hard to tell when a line that slowly ticking upwards is going to skyrocket but during the past few years a couple of factors have led to AI becoming the next big thing first huge amounts of data are being created every minute in fact 90% of the world’s data has been generated in the past two years and now thanks to advances in processing speeds computers can actually make sense of all this information more quickly because of this tech giants and venture capitalists have bought into AI and are infusing the market with cash and new applications very soon AI will become a little less artificial and a lot more intelligent now the question is should you brace yourself for yet another Terminator movie live on your city streets not exactly in fact stop thinking of robots when it comes to AI a robot is nothing more than the shell concealing what’s actually used to power the technology that means .AI can manifest itself in many different ways let’s break down the options first you have your buds they’re text-based and incredibly powerful but they have limitations ask a weather bot for the forecast it will tell you it’s partly cloudy with a high of 57 but ask that same bot what time it is in Tokyo and it’ll get a little confused that’s because the bots creator only programmed it to give you the weather by pulling from a specific data source natural language processing makes these BOTS a bit more sophisticated when you ask Syria or Cortana where the closest gas station is it’s really just translating your voice into text feeding it to a search engine and reading the answer back in human syntax so in other words you don’t have to speak in code at the far end of the spectrum is machine learning and honestly it’s one of the most exciting areas of AI like a human a machine retains information and becomes smarter over time but unlike a human it’s not susceptible to things like short-term memory loss information overload sleep deprivation and distractions but how do these machines actually learn well while it may be easy for a human to know the difference between a cat and a dock for a computer not so much you see when you’re only considering physical appearance the difference between cats and dogs can be a little gray you can say cats have pointed ears and dogs have floppy ears but those rules aren’t universal between tail length fur texture and color there are a lot of options and that means a lot of tedious rules someone would have to program manually to help a computer spot the difference that remember machine learning is about making machines learn like humans and like any toddler that means they have to learn by experience with machine learning programs analyze thousands of examples to build an algorithm it then tweaks the algorithm based on if it achieves its goal over time .The program actually gets smarter that’s how machines like IBM’s Watson can diagnose cancer compose classical symphonies or crush Ken Jennings at jeopardy some programs even mimic the way the human brain is structured complete with neural networks that help humans and now machines solve problems generations have long imagined the ramifications of AI visualizing a society where machines seek revenge and wreak havoc on human society however the more logical and pressing question is how will a AI affect your job will it make your work obsolete just like the Industrial Revolution it’s not human versus machine it’s human and machine versus problem the point is that artificial intelligence helps you accomplish more in less time taking on the repetitive tasks of your job while you master the strategy and relationships that way humans can do what they do best
