The Ar­ti­fi­cial Boom in China

Industry Leaders - - Content Features -

When­ever the term “ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence” is men­tioned, the first thought that comes to any lay­man’s mind is that it is the tech­nol­ogy which helps de­velop ro­bots. Ma­jor Hol­ly­wood movies have given a su­per­fi­cial im­pres­sion about the tech­no­log­i­cal sub­ject. But ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence is a much broader con­cept that the reg­u­lar no­tion of it. If we talk about it in the lit­eral sense, the term ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence stands for the sim­u­la­tion of hu­man in­tel­li­gence

pro­cessed by ma­chines, mainly com­puter sys­tems. The ma­jor pro­cesses un­der this sim­u­la­tion are rea­son­ing, learn­ing, and self-correction. Th­ese pro­cesses are later elab­o­rated with ref­er­ence to the needs of tech­nol­ogy.

The term ‘ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence’ was first coined by an Amer­i­can com­puter sci­en­tist John Mccarthy in 1956 dur­ing the Dart­mouth Con­fer­ence. With the pas­sage of time, this term cov­ers a huge num­ber of fields of tech­nol­ogy and not only ro­bot­ics. Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence at­tained its promi­nence as it helps in in­creas­ing the size, speed, and va­ri­ety of the big data col­lected and can also per­form var­i­ous func­tions re­lated to it. This is be­cause man­ag­ing sta­tis­ti­cal data on a large scale can be an ex­tremely time con­sum­ing process for the hu­mans. But with the help of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, it can per­form com­pli­cated tasks like the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of pat­terns in the data in a quicker and more ef­fi­cient man­ner than hu­mans, which helps the busi­nesses in gain­ing bet­ter in­sight into their data which made it the prefer­able choice.

The learn­ing of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence is made for ex­plor­ing in­tel­li­gence and how does it con­nect to tech­nol­ogy and en­gi­neer­ing. With the use of hu­man in­tel­li­gence in terms of tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neers come up with dif­fer­ent the­o­ries which come un­der the broad con­cept of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence. Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence can be said to be at the root of a ma­jor­ity of the tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ments tak­ing place cur­rently. It plays an in­te­gral part in al­most all fields of life.
