progressed from Stone Age to Space Age and are now rushing toward the age of
artificial intelligence (AI). An age where, in layman’s terms, we will have substitutions
for the human brain. An age where computers and robots will perform tasks that
we perform today. There is anadvancement of this technology at an alarming
speed, especially in the West. At the same time, abundant data termed as ‘Big
Data’ is being collected at an impossible rate. Even something as simple as
liking a Facebook post sends information about you and that is why you would
see similar posts and social media highly attuned to your likes and dislikes.
This collection of data takes place on all platforms which makes the amount of
data collected unimaginable.
This data is
then used to provide directions and training to AI. For example, the AI
chatbots (somethat we often use today on websites), can be trained to understand
people’s responses and try to solve problems by feeding the chatbots data received
from messengers showing how people textand talk as well as voice recording of
humans. From among vast data resources, AI can recognize patterns which is not
possible for humans. Chatbots are often used for customer service sites to answers
the customer’s questions.
tasks to reduce the amount of human labour used in organizations. AI can also
help to translate texts and messages in different languages and can bridge the
gap. The government can become more efficient through AI as there will be less
paperwork and computer systems to handle much of the work. Artificial
intelligence helps create apps that allow people to keep a check on their health
and checking their symptoms through this app before going to hospitals. This
saves unnecessary hospital visits as these apps and chatbots can also give
answers and advice for some of the minor diseases. A company somewhere is
manufacturing irobots for efficient cleaning where it can determine how much
cleaning there is to do based on the room’s size.
In New York,
AI has been used to create a financial search engine that helps investors. This
search engine can scan substantial amounts of data from thousands and millions
of financial institutions and resources and give results that can save many
hours and days of work for the financial data analysts. Chatbots are also used
in the travel field where they suggest flights, hotels and places to see at the
destination that you choose. Google Maps with minute details about all the
places and having a voice recording installed is an excellent example of
artificial intelligence. There are also travel apps that provide travel advice
and suggestions. Artificial Intelligence has made image recognition possible on
Facebook and Instagram hence asking us to tag someone and showing the correct
names even before we have tagged them. Artificial intelligence is highly used
to design and update social media platforms and it will rise more so looking at
how important the internet has become.
conclusion, Artificial Intelligence has penetrated almost all aspects of human
life and is said to overtake a lot of things in the future. It has its pros and
cons. If used appropriately it can lead to success and progress of the human
race hitherto unseen.
