Anteral Academy is back and today we talk about one of the latest trends: Artificial Intelligence With the recent launch of ChatGPT, eveyone is talking about #AI but, do you know what it is? From the self-driving cars to the smart assistants like Siri and Alexa, Artificial Intelligence is a growing part of everyday life. Do you want to learn more about it?
What is Artificial Intelligence? Definition and origin.
We can define Artificial intelligence as the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines.
Now let’s talk about its origin. After helping the Allied forces win World War II by breaking the Nazi encryption machine Enigma, mathematician Alan Turing changed history a second time with a simple question: “Can machines think?” Turing’s 1950 paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” and its subsequent Turing Test established the fundamental goal and vision of AI: the endeavor to replicate or simulate human intelligence in machines.
How does AI work?
In general, AI systems work by ingesting large data, analyzing the data for correlations and patterns, and using these patterns to make predictions about future states. For example, it can learn to identify and describe different objects in images by reviewing millions of examples.
The learning process focuses on acquiring data and creating rules for how to turn the data into understandable information. These rules are called algorithms.
