What is Artificial Intelligence? Artificial intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. The field of AI research deals with all aspects of intelligent systems and their application in areas such as robotics and computer vision. Artificial intelligence is a topic that is creating much interest and debate, both in the scientific community and in the general population. Artificial Intelligence has actually been in existence for much longer than the public have known about it. It began when in 1946 Alan Turing introduced his famous Turing Test, in order to determine whether a machine is intelligent or not. Artificial Intelligence was then developed further by scientists such as Marvin Minsky who helped create Artificial Neural Networks that are able to be trained to recognise patterns within data sets. Artificial Intelligence has since made several remarkable achievements including: – Deep Blue defeating world chess champion Garry Kasparov in 1997 – IBM Watson winning Jeopardy against two former champions in 2011 – Google’s self-driving car being approved by the US government for road use in 2015 – AlphaGo designed by Google’s Artificial Intelligence subsidiary DeepMind defeating world champion Lee Sedol at the GAME OF GO (also known as BADUK, WEI-CHI etc.) Artificial Narrow Intelligence is on the uprise on a daily basis with new AI developments taking place all over the world. All of this suggests that Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) will soon be upon us, which will allow machines to learn faster than ever before [More]
Melanie Cook, Tedx Speaker, Managing Director Singapore Campus, Hyper Island | Augmented Intelligence: Where Man and Machine Make Magic | Experience Stage | September 13, 2018 | 12:55 – 13:15 Categories: Future | AI The Super Intelligentsia believes that AI and Armageddon go hand in hand. Robotics and AI have integrated human and mechanical capabilities at work, with jobs lost and skills condensed to a keystroke. But human intelligence is far from obsolete. With crowd-computing we have knowledge exchanges like Wiki, and real-time curated news. Semantic technology helps leaders to understand what is happening in the work place. But neurology shows that these leaders cannot make choices, and therefore take action, without emotion. Augmented Intelligence takes human intuition and imagination, and combines it with AI’s ability to automate and scale, making the Intelligent Workplace hard to beat.
