Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence through machines and mostly through computer systems. Artificial intelligence is a subfield of a computer. It enables computers to do things which are normally done by human beings. Any program can be said to be Artificial intelligence if it is able to do something that the humans do it using their intelligence. In simple words, Artificial Intelligence means the power of a machine to copy the human intelligent behavior. It is about designing machines that can think.
Artificial Intelligence has been used in wide range of fields these days. For example medical diagnosis, robots, remote sensing, etc. Artificial intelligence is around us in many ways but we don’t realize it. For example, the ATM which we are using is an artificial intelligence machine learning training. Few of the advantages of using artificial intelligence is listed below
- Greater precision and accuracy can be achieved through AI
- These machines do not get affected by the planetary environment or atmosphere
- Robots can be programmed to do the works which are difficult for the human beings to complete
- AI will open up doors to new technological breakthroughs
- As they are machines they don’t stop for sleep or food or rest. They just need some source of energy to work
- Fraud detection becomes easier with artificial intelligence
- Using AI the time-consuming tasks can be done more efficiently
- Dangerous tasks can be done using AI machines as it affects only the machines and not the human beings
