What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?
Artificial Intelligence is designed machines that has the ability to think, also known as intelligence of machines.
The very idea to create an artificial intelligence is to make humans’ lives easier. Researchers of artificial intelligence want to bring in the emotional quotient to the machines along with the general intelligence.
Advantages of Artificial Intelligence
1. Error Reduction:
Artificial intelligence helps us in reducing errors, and the chance of reaching accuracy with a greater degree of precision is a possibility. It is applied in various studies such as exploration of the space.
Intelligent robots are fed with information and sent to explore the space. Since they are machines with metal bodies, they are more resistant and have greater ability to endure the space and hostile atmosphere.
They are created and acclimatized in such a way that they cannot be modified or get disfigured or broken down in the hostile environment.
2. Difficult Exploration:
Artificial intelligence and the science of robotics can be practical in mining and other fuel exploration processes. Not only that, these complex machines can be used for exploring the ocean floor and hence overcome the human limitations.
Due to the programme of the robots, they can perform more laborious and hard work with greater responsibility. Moreover, they do not wear out easily.
3. Daily Application:
We are also hitting the road for long drives and trips with the help of GPS. Smartphone in an apt and every day is an example of how we use artificial intelligence. In utilities, we find that they can predict what we are going to type and correct the human errors in spelling. That is machine intelligence at work.
When we take a picture, the artificial intelligence algorithm identifies and detects the person’s face and tags the individual when we are posting our photographs on the social media sites.
Not only that, Artificial Intelligence is widely employed by financial institutions and banking institutions to organize and manage data. Detection of fraud uses artificial intelligence in a smart card based system.
4. Digital Assistants:
Highly advanced organizations use ‘avatars’ which are replicas or digital assistants who can actually interact with the users, thus saving the need for human resources.
For artificial thinkers, emotions come in the way of rational thinking and are not a distraction at all. The complete absence of the emotional side makes the robots think logically and take the right program decisions.
Emotions are associated with moods that can cloud judgment and affect human efficiency. This is completely ruled out for machine intelligence.
5. Repetitive Jobs:
Repetitive jobs which are monotonous in nature can be carried out with the help of machine intelligence. Machines think faster than humans and can operate multi-tasking. Machine intelligence can carry out dangerous tasks with no hesitation. Besides, their parameters, unlike humans, can be adjusted. Their speed and time are calculation based parameters only.
When humans play a computer game or run a computer-controlled robot, we are actually interacting with artificial intelligence. In the game we are playing, the computer is our opponent. The machine intelligence plans the game movements in response to our movements. We can consider gaming to be the most common use of the benefits of artificial intelligence.
6. Medical Applications:
In the medical field also, we will find the wide application of AI. Doctors assess the patients and their health risks with the help of artificial machine intelligence. It educates them about the side effects of various medicines.
Medical professionals are often trained with the artificial surgery simulators. They find a huge application in detecting and monitoring neurological disorders as they can simulate the brain functions.
Robotics plays an important role in helping mental health patients to come out of depression and remain active. A popular application of artificial intelligence is radiosurgery. Radiosurgery is used in operating tumors and this can actually help in the operation without damaging the surrounding tissues.
7. No Breaks:
In addition with all the pros mentioned, machines, unlike humans, do not require frequent breaks and refreshments. They are programmed for long hour work and can continuously perform without getting bored or distracted or even tired.
