Technology and science are the primary determinants of modern society. Like one of the most significant new digital phenomena stands out artificial intelligence (AI).
Artificial intelligence (AI), as an advanced computer system, seeks to simulate the functioning of human intelligence.
Modern computer systems are capable of processing large quantities of information and data. The potentials of artificial intelligence are huge. That refers to different mathematical and economic calculations, database searches, transportation services, sales, medical care, and more.
So, artificial intelligence (AI) is an independent scientific discipline and a new step in the evolution of information and communication technologies.
How does artificial intelligence (AI) work?
Artificial intelligence combines data with fast, iterative processing systems and smart algorithms, allowing the software to learn automatically.
Although AI includes a huge number of theories, methods, and technologies, the following items considered the most important:
- Machine learning
- Neural network
- Deep learning
- Cognitive computing
- Computer vision
- Natural language processing (NLP)
The application of artificial intelligence (AI)
Healthcare and general welfare of the population
With artificial intelligence (AI) we can monitor:
- digitally expressed health parameters (blood count, biochemistry, hormones, subjective feeling),
- independent variables (food, dietary supplements, or medications),
- set of meteorological parameters, physical activity, social life.
Calculating the relationships of these variables can contribute to better diagnosis and fully personalized recommendations and therapies. In a more sophisticated endeavor, one can probably come up with algorithms that explain the health conditions for each person and give helpful recommendations based on that.
Personal and family economy
Artificial intelligence (AI) helps in:
- recording income and expenses,
- performing reliable analytics,
- testing plans,
- personalization of purchases
- measuring favorableness of decisions,
- giving the best recommendation,
- suggesting new possibilities.
There is advanced agriculture where each sensor will know best the needs of square meters of land assigned to it while communicating with thousands of such same sensors.
Self-driving cars already recognize a huge number of parameters, but also interpret them and communicating with other vehicles and the central traffic management system, at the same time.
Challenges of Artificial Intelligence Systems
Challenges related to the application of artificial intelligence (AI) are social consequences, replacement, and suppression of human engagement. Automation reduces costs and increases profits. Smart machines will take over the business, contributing to the growing polarization of modern societies.
According to the proponents of utopia, artificial intelligence (AI) will open the way to a new age of enlightenment where humanity will be freed from everyday, tedious obligations and will finally be able to dedicate itself to something more sublime, creative.
It is necessary to ensure ownership and responsibility for all AI projects. Algorithms for monitoring and auditing processes also calculate here, so AI can independently correct errors.
Experts estimate that the right path is actually to design an AI system with several conflicting and independent goals, to ensure that human intervention is always necessary.
We used to think that only people could create art, compose music, and drive cars. Today, artificial intelligence can do it, but also much more. Artificial intelligence (AI) transforms work, society, culture, our bodies, and even human identity.
