The term “artificial intelligence” is a very broad term that doesn’t cover one specific technology or solution. It’s used whenever a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds. A few examples are “learning” and “problem solving”.
AI techniques have become an essential part of technology industry to create intelligent routing, execute military simulations or interpret complex data, including images and videos. But also to build machines which are capable of thinking like humans, but much faster and using massive amounts of data (big data). AI is already more present in daily applications than you might suspect. For example, if you’re using an Android smartphone, AI is used to optimize your battery usage.
With the massive availability of data – from things we share on social media to machine data generated by connected industrial machinery – computers now have a universe of information available to them, helping them to learn to be more efficient and make better decisions.
AI technology is key in the digital transformation taking place today. After all it allows us to build more intelligent and complex solutions to automate manual tasks.
Some applications using AI are:
