What is Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) is wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence. AI is an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches, but advancements in machine learning and deep learning are creating a paradigm shift in virtually every sector of the tech industry.
With the help of AI, we can create such software or devices which can solve real-world problems very easily and with accuracy such as health issues, marketing, traffic issues, etc. With the help of AI, you can create your personal virtual Assistant, such as Cortana, Google Assistant, Siri, etc. With the help of AI, you can build such Robots which can work in an environment where survival of humans can be at risk. AI opens a path for other new technologies, new devices, and new Opportunities.
Goals of Artificial Intelligence
- Replicate human intelligence
- Solve Knowledge-intensive tasks
- An intelligent connection of perception and action
- Building a machine which can perform tasks that requires human intelligence such as; playing chess, Driving a car in traffic, Proving a theorem, Plan some surgical operation.
Advantage of Artificial Intelligence
