About this article: Artificial Intelligence.

Artificial intelligence is synonymous with computers because intelligence can be created using this technology.

Artificial intelligence.

What is artificial intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence is considered the development of machines such as robots and security systems to perform the job of humans. They even have feelings, thoughts, preferences and understand human speech.

Artificial Intelligence then and now

In 1941, the most intelligent machine was an invention in the form of the electronic computer. Who would have thought 60 years from then that the same computer would be perfected beyond leaps and bounds and be used to control other machines, as well as be part of day to day living? In 1956, John McCarthy, considered the father of Artificial Intelligence, organized a conference where intellectuals gathered to learn of this phenomenon. This laid the foundation for the advancements in artificial intelligence today.

Today artificial intelligence is used in our homes and sophisticated establishments such as military bases and the NASA space station. NASA has even sent out artificially intelligent robots to grace some planets and to learn more about their atmosphere and habitat, the intention being to investigate if there is a possibility of humans living on other planets.

There are many advantages and disadvantages of the use of artificial intelligence in business and in our day to day lives.

Advantages of Artificial Intelligence

Machines can be used to take on complex and stressful work that would be otherwise performed by humans

Machines can complete the task faster than a human assigned to do the same task

Use of robotics to discover unexplored landscape, outer space and also be useful in our home activities

Less danger, injury and stress to humans as the work is done by a artificially intelligent machine

Aiding of mental, visually and hearing impaired individuals

Used for games to create a atmosphere where you don't feel like you are playing against just a machine

Understanding complex software can be made in to easy-to-understand types with the aid of artificial intelligence

Less errors and defects

Minimized time and resources. Time and resources are not wasted but effectively used to achieve the end goal

Their function is infinite



Disadvantages of Artificial Intelligence

Lacks the human touch. Human qualities are sometimes ignored

The ability to replace a human job. This gives rise to humans feeling insecure and may have the fear of losing their job

Human capabilities can be replaced using a machine and therefore can foster feelings of inferiority among workers and staff

Artificial Intelligence can malfunction and do the opposite of what they are programmed to do

May corrupt the younger generation

There is no filtering of information

This type of technology can be misused to cause mass scale destruction

Summery: This article describes what artificial intelligence is and how useful it is in our day to day lives, while also highlighting some of the disadvantages.
