AI transforming the world-By Vipasha Chikate

Most of the people are not very familiar with the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI). They must have heard about “What is AI” but they are unclear about what AI can actually do and how it is transforming our daily life.

Ai is a technology that is changing out life, it is a wide-ranging tool to analyse data, to integrate information and use resulting insights for decision making. Although there is no uniformly agreed upon definition, AI generally is thought to “machines that respond to stimulation consistent with traditional responses from humans, given the human capacity for contemplation, judgement and intention.”

AI can relieve humans of various repetitive tasks. The technology can learn work once and repeat it, as many times as desired by its human programmer. AI makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks, from chess-playing computers to self-driving cars, which rely heavily on deep learning and natural language processing.

AI can dramatically improve the efficiency of our workplaces and eliminate the necessity for humans to perform tedious tasks. When Artificial Intelligence takes over repetitive or dangerous tasks, it frees up humans, allowing them to perform tasks that involve creativity, and leaves enough room and time for the interpersonal aspects of their lives.

AI makes people’s lives more efficient, powering many programs and services that help them do everyday things, such as connecting with friends and using an email program or ride share service.

The best examples of AI in daily life are travel navigation, smart home devices, smartphones, drones and smart cars. Tesla electric cars are a prime example of how Artificial Intelligence is impacting people’s daily lives, while companies like Amazon and Walmart are investing heavily in drone delivery programs.

Artificial intelligence is no longer mere science fiction as it has long gone far beyond theories and assumptions. Even though some of the advanced manifestations of AI, like fully autonomous vehicles or a super drug that will cure major diseases, haven’t arrived yet, we still can observe its presence in almost any sphere of human activity — from entertainment, automotive, e-commerce to the economy. AI is everywhere — in the smartphone you are carrying around with you to IoT devices.
