There are hundreds of
Artificial Intelligence (A.I) startup companies across the world that have
developed different methods and approaches to make their products “intelligent”
over the past few years. In this article, we will take a look at artificial
intelligence in an overview and explain its origins and how it works. We will
compare some of the largest AI startups and discuss what makes them unique.
Also, we will compare the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and
determine which method is best for you.
What is Artificial Intelligence?
When I first heard the word
Artificial Intelligence, I was thinking about robots, but in today’s dynamic
world, we tend to think more about machines that can do things better than
humans. But, what does machine intelligence actually mean? By definition,
artificial intelligence is a computer program that could learn by itself without
any human help or assistance. Today, these algorithms are used by almost every
business, as well as everyday applications, from image recognition systems to
music and speech recognition systems that we use in our phones. A lot of people
might also be familiar with Siri, Alexa, Google Now, or Cortana from Apple or
Amazon, and they are all based on deep learning models or neural networks that
make information processing much easier and faster. The main purpose of
artificial intelligence is to replicate the processes that we see in the brain
that enable us to think, feel, remember and act.
Why should you care about Artificial
Artificial intelligence has
made a huge impact on various aspects of life, so why should you be concerned
with this topic? Well, because artificial intelligence is not only useful, it
can make your personal and business lives very efficient. You will never know
anything about other people if you don’t know how they think. It’s important
for businesses that automate data collection and communication with customers.
After all, automation frees up time and resources that would otherwise be used
for customer support. If you are interested in new features that are
implemented through Artificially Intelligent technologies, then there are
several options available and this field of research is quickly getting bigger.
Many entrepreneurs around the globe already started investing and developing
innovative technologies that give them competitive advantages over others. This
field is expanding rapidly, but there are no signs of slowing down in this
highly promising industry.
How does Artificial Intelligence work?
Artificial intelligence can be
thought of as a process where computers take input data and decide what to do
next based on previous experiences. To understand how Artificial Intelligence
works, let’s look into how smart companies like IBM Watson interpret historical
and current data to predict future outcomes.
Let’s start with IBM Watson,
which is currently working with many clients in areas such as health, education,
finance, and more. IBM Watson uses several techniques and technologies at once
to recognize information and come to the right conclusion. These technologies
include Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and
Natural Environment Awareness Networking. There are three main types of
artificial intelligence: natural language, visual and symbolic. Let’s start
with natural language. Our brains make sense of language based on context and
try to understand what someone means by different words. Natural language
processing is one of the most common ways artificial intelligence learns. This
technology is used to analyze text data, read documents, write emails, answer
phone calls and even translate texts easily.
Natural languages are often
difficult to understand by humans but thanks to artificial intelligence, the
ability to communicate better and easier with other humans over smartphones is now possible. One of the recent natural language processing
innovations is the integration of mobile apps, which are mostly powered by
artificial intelligence. As the developers of those apps, developers need a
good understanding of languages and languages used in specific countries that
they wish to serve. For example, IBM Watson is used in more than 30 countries
around the world. However, it might be impossible for a native speaker to use
that app without translation and this would lead to failure. Another good
example of an application of artificial intelligence is facial recognition that
helps identify individuals in photos, videos, and images that are uploaded onto
social media systems.
Let’s take a closer look at IBM
Watson. Through open APIs, it is possible for researchers and users to access
information about different services. There are multiple websites where you can
see different features that it offers and compare the price with other
competing solutions. IBM also uses machine learning to distinguish between
normal documents and bad ones that require further investigation. All this
information is collected and stored by IBM Watson to better understand
customers. For instance, to find out whether a particular document or email is
fraudulent, it looks at the content and text of data and determines if it is
legitimate or not. Of course, even more, advanced forms of artificial
intelligence can also perform tasks like object detection, sound synthesis, and
Another famous company that
uses artificial intelligence is Microsoft Azure. Currently, it serves 100
million customers and is growing fast. With Microsoft’s digital cloud offering
of thousands of databases and software, it is easy to integrate all your
digital assets in one central location. Using cloud technology, you can manage
large amounts of complex data very efficiently. Also, you can use artificial
intelligence features at all times. Users can create reports for different
periods or tasks they want to view while accessing the cloud server. Some
examples are Azure Cloud Functions that make operations much easier, which
usually happens after a certain period and you must pay an annual subscription
fee in order to enjoy them.
Another interesting side of
this field is the robotic warehouse which uses automated picking and packing
processes. Robots can pick, pack and store materials in large containers and
thus are able to minimize shipping costs and improve the quality of service. The
key benefit is that robots take orders and deliver products to their
manufacturers. They can also predict their outcome in terms of shipment and
delivery dates. There are many examples of companies that use robotics to make
their products more efficient. Those examples are Ford Motor Company, Toyota
Financial Services, and Hyundai Automotive Group. More companies use robotics
in different industries, such as industrial manufacturing and construction, and
this is another factor that shows that there is no end of possibilities when
using this technology.
The question is whether any
organization or individual is currently dealing with artificial intelligence,
or how far along it is? This gives you the opportunity to measure the progress
that the industry has made and identify any problems that they face. This way,
you could get valuable insights and the right solution that helps your business
Everything in this world must have some merits and demerits including
these new inventions. But human must use their positive sides as it is important
for future generations. Artificial Intelligence has tremendous helpful
advantages. “Artificial Intelligence is tools not threaten. We should not be
terrified of A. I (Artificial Intelligence). There is no doubt that AI is made
for our benefit. As time goes on we will need it.
