The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence in the Modern World

By | June 25th, 2014|Categories: Futurism & Technology|Tags: , |

Technology has developed through the implementation of innovative ideas to supplement outdated methods of approaching technical problems. This has played a great part in saving time, costs, and promoting the overall production in the manufacturing industries. Reflecting on definition, it is agreeable that artificial intelligence (A.I.) is the intelligence enhanced by computer software to the human beings that helps in the performance of their duties. In other words, it is the art and engineering of producing intellectual machines. However, it is worth noting that artificial intelligence is a wide-ranging field comprising several ranges of research. Some of these areas take account of decision-making, computer vision, and language recognition among others. In the recent years, artificial intelligence has developed other challenges containing machine learning in addition to robotics all together. Despite the challenges, one can concur that artificial intelligence has played a key role towards enhancement of the mind of a human being. […]
