What is Artificial Intelligence? An artificial intelligence (AI) is a computer program that behaves in a way that we expect humans to. An AI can take many forms, the most common of which is a computer program which is able to mimic human behavior. This has led to the problem of whether or not an AI is sentient or not.
As far as artificial intelligence is concerned, the scientific community believes that humans and machines are very similar in many ways. However, an AI is more like a human than it is like a machine. For instance, humans can see a cat, they can hear it, smell it, feel it, and understand what it is telling them; but if a person asks “what is a cat” – they cannot answer because they do not know.
Humans on the other hand, understand a lot about a particular subject; they know when something is right or wrong. If an animal is sick, a human knows it is ill and will make certain changes to prevent its condition from getting worse. A machine does not know if it is right or wrong; therefore, it cannot do what a human does. What this means is that an AI can do certain things which a human cannot.
How can one tell the difference between what is AI and what is a machine?
Simply put, one would look at the number of changes that the program makes in a given time frame, rather than by how good it is at accomplishing its task. If an AI can change by hundreds of times faster than the average human, then it is an artificial intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence has many characteristics which are unique to this type of intelligence. One example of this is a program that can carry out a job which would be near impossible for a human to do. An AI program can carry out tasks such as diagnosing cancer, finding hidden viruses, and being a sniper fora sniper team. Such technology is becoming more common because it makes possible much more complex machines which operate at a much higher level than previously thought possible.
Artificial intelligence can also be used for more mundane tasks such as determining the cause of a fire or helping you to predict the weather for an upcoming day. Nowadays, all you need is a computer with an internet connection and you can have a weather report telling you what’s going to happen today. Even if you were too busy that day to check the weather report, it could have told you whether or not it was going to rain or shine. Some computers do have weather stations built into them, but they do not always forecast the weather correctly.
An example of the latest technology, which uses AI is the brainchild of Alibaba’s Yingyi Zhang. Yingyi’s program is able to predict stock prices with 97% accuracy and is being used for financial forecasting on websites, the internet itself, and on hedge funds which rely on their predictions.
Artificial intelligence can also be used to design a computer that can evolve beyond any known form of life. An AI program called Nickolaus built a computer with a rudimentary form of life, with the very basic ability to control the movements of neurons, and it is capable of changing its behavior when it senses danger.
Megan Sims, a computer scientist who is not related to Megan, is trying to build a computer which can decide how it will react to certain stimuli. Her main concerns are whether or not such a computer can be programmed to act in a predictable manner, and whether or not such a computer can function as a real living creature.
So what is artificial intelligence? In simple terms, it is the ability of a computer to develop artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence could be defined as the capability of a computer to learn, adapt, and behave in a fashion similar to a human brain. These programs are similar to programs that have been developed for playing video games such as Tetris, where the program can be programmed to learn certain patterns and is capable of performing certain actions which would be impossible for a human being.
Artificial intelligence can be very helpful to us in many ways. But just because it can do certain things that we may not be able to do doesn’t mean that it is a real human being.
