Indeed, we hear a lot about Artificial Intelligence today, but few people really know what artificial intelligence really is. Much more confusing to newcomers and novices is that many folks that are in the artificial intelligence field debate its definition. Still compounding the problem is when commercial ventures begin touting their technologies as artificially intelligent driven, when actually they are not.
There are always a number of different categories that those in the field of artificial intelligence fall into. One is people who genuinely believe that ambient clinical intelligence artificial intelligence is computer software which mimics human decision making or seems to mimic human decision making. Then there is the group that calls themselves purists who genuinely believe that neural network processing holds true artificial intelligence. Obviously we are discussing both types. We may also touch upon all different applications, technologies which are or be seemingly similar enough, that their creators or marketers have labeled as artificial intelligence.
Today we most commonly realize that such applications as search engines on the Internet, autonomous operation and interactive eLearning systems, along with recognition software for speech, facial features, finger marks, spell checkers, voice, anti-spam programs or algorithms which scan databases to locate anomalies. Obviously the more intense the application for instance self-driving cars, self-piloted planes, corporate telephone systems, weather prediction, stock trading, military net-centric warfare, automated warehousing or computer space systems the more important artificial intelligence becomes.
It ought to be relatively easy to understand that artificial intelligence has changed our lives as much as computers themselves and as time goes by even more still with artificially intelligent robotic androids within our homes and decision making computers at work. As time goes on we could have artificial intelligence running our government, transportation systems, money flows, environment, distribution systems, virtual reality entertainment systems and just about everything you might dream up. Perhaps after scanning this book you could in fact consider more applications in your industry?
May be the sky the limit to artificial intelligence? Indeed, it does be seemingly and yet perhaps not, as we’re already using AI underwater and underground, which means sky isn’t the limit and neither is the floor or whatever else in this dimension. Artificial intelligence is not even limited by time, space, energy or matter in one single dimension. As time goes on humans could have add-on features where man and machine is merged using Artificially Intelligent components. So once we examine where we’re today with Artificial Intelligent Systems the solution most appropriate will be; We are at the Tip of the Ice Berg.
The more pressing question is how shall we proceed? Does mankind have the discipline and integrity to carry on the forward progression with this technology without sacrificing or risking all we’re and all we’ve built; perhaps that indeed is the foremost question of all?
