What Does Artificial Intelligence Mean?


Commonly known as AI, a machine that runs artificial intelligence can simulate human intellect. Commonly reserved for computer systems, it can be defined by the process of learning, reasoning and self-correction, examples of which including speech recognition. Separated by weak or strong, AI can range from virtual personal assistants we all use in our homes to systems that can problem-solve independently. 


Differing from popular opinion, experts want the term AI to move away from its scary portrayal on TV, in films and through contemporary literature. Many people believe that AI will take people’s jobs, however, experts argue that the maintenance of AI and the industries it will create can actually increase job prospects. Due to such misconceptions, experts have turned to public speaking to educate businesses on the benefits of AI. 


AI can be split into 4 categories - reactive machines, limited memory, the theory of mind and self-awareness - but as the landscape of artificial intelligence is in a constant state of innovation and development. There is no telling where AI will, but the possibilities are seemingly endless.

From cooking and fortune-telling, to creating music and climate change, AI’s scope will one day reach all areas of life. 


At present, the three main industries applying AI to business are finance, retail and security.

In retail, customers are enjoying closer support from sales representatives through the use of AI automated online “chats”. It is no surprise that security is relying on AI to fight cyberattacks, however, large companies are using artificial intelligence systems to actually prevent attacks in the first place through threat detection.
