The History of Artificial Intelligence | Its Rise to Consumer Market
In our past three posts on Artificial Intelligence, we have extensively covered all the basics of AI, machine learning, neural networks, and their capabilities. AI is a technology that has changed the future in ways most of us would never predict, but now, to fully understand the concept and the ethical concerns it raises, we…Read More
Natural Language Processing | What is it?
Natural Language Processing Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a computer system’s attempt at understanding verbal human communication/language. Software systems try to understand human communication through rules and patterns. These rules and patterns are created from large amounts of inputted data on language and written excerpts. As useful as it is, NLP is only one example of…Read More
Fuzzy Logic | What is it?
While Boolean logic accurately represents how computers “think”, fuzzy logic more so represents how humans think. Fuzzy logic understands that people make decisions imprecisely and with non-numerical information.Read More
Deep Learning | What is it?
Deep learning is a subset of machine learning and is composed of larger neural networks. Like machine learning, Deep Learning starts with giving a system plenty of data to sort through to allow it to make decisions on different subjects.Read More
Neural Network | What is it?
Neural networks simulate the neurons within the brain using artificial neurons or nodes. It is used in machine learning to simulate the human brain making connections through trial and error rather than simple data sets.Read More
Machine Learning | What is it?
Machine learning is a pattern-based subset of AI. Machines are given data and create rules based on patterns detected within. Through these set rules, AI can understand and predict outcomes from certain information, then makes actions to avoid or obtain said outcomes.Read More
Weak AI/Strong AI | What is it?
Weak AI is less intelligent as it cannot work without human interaction and focuses on a more narrow, specific, or niched purpose.Read More
Cognitive Computing | What is it?
Sometimes used interchangeably with AI but varying slightly, Cognitive Computing (CC) replicates and alters human thought processes with computerized models.Read More
Quantum Computing | What is it?
Quantum Computing involves an understanding of quantum mechanics, the study of subatomic particles. It uses collective properties from quantum states to make calculations on a subatomic level that regular computers cannot.Read More
Artificial Intelligence | What is it?
Artificial intelligence is the simulation of the human brain through software coding within machines. AI uses a system of data sets, patterns, and rules to analyze new scenarios and make predictions for the right course of action depending on previous experience/data.Read More
