An ability to adapt to machine and learning to a machine is Artificial Intelligence, as described in brief. But artificial intelligence is more than we know and perceived to be. There are 3 types of artificial intelligence.
Let’s look at the first type of AI and broaden our knowledge about narrow artificial intelligence:
Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI)
Artificial Intelligence proved that technology could imitate the human brain and actions. Narrow artificial Intelligence or narrow AI is a specific technology that it can imitate the human action to accomplish a task, which is narrowly defined. These actions, for example, include speech recognition and voice assistants. It would be good to know that narrow artificial intelligence has cognitive abilities and emphasize a single subset of this ability, where there is a further scope to make a few advancements in this area.
Tracing the history of AI, narrow artificial intelligence marks the beginning of the basics of artificial intelligence, later, which developed into something more refined and improved. Since the time the computer was invented until the present time, various technologies have been put together to make the human effort easier. It would not be unfair to say that computers have surpassed the human abilities of computing and quantifying tasks. As technology advanced and technologies like narrow artificial intelligence came into place, people’s perception has changed. Probably, we want to know and explore what more artificial intelligence can offer. With endless opportunities, there is no limit to improving artificial intelligence.
With endless limits, narrow artificial intelligence scope is wide. Whether you want to play complex games or want to make some important business decisions and want to complete some critical and useful business tasks, smart devices and computers powered by AI can help you achieve with ease. The technology artificial intelligence systems are evolving and becoming more improved day after day. Narrow artificial intelligence was easier to comprehend, but as human brains are much improvised to accomplish more complex tasks, artificial intelligence striving hard to achieve similar brilliance. Phenomena, like natural language processing advancements, come closer to humans’ ideas. It can replicate the human mind and actions in a much more general strong artificial intelligence model. Technologies like this allow computers to write effective news stories and fiction novels based on what exactly a human mind can think, conceive, and act.
To role it up, narrow artificial intelligence is a stream of intelligence that can perform a single task smartly and intellectually as it is programmed to do so. The basic concept of AI is to learn or be programmed about a single task with intelligence and perform efficiently and smartly with minor or no errors.
The examples of narrow artificial intelligence are:
Speech recognition is the ability of a machine or program to detect related words or phrases in the spoken language and transform the same into a format readable and identified by machines. The fundamental speech recognition software has a stock of limited words and phrases in its vocabulary. It can only recognize what lies in its spectrum and only when it is spoken clearly. To efficiently perform certain actions, it exclusively relies on specific audible and liable voice commands. This type of intelligence is achieved by humanity.
The voice assistant is a digital assistant. It helps and provides solutions or results to the users through phones and voice recognition applications. To perform the tasks, it uses voice recognition, natural language processing, and speech synthesis.
Artificial intelligence reshaping the medical sector for a healthier future
Medical sector is growing at a great speed with the solution of various diseases which were unknown till now. The development is maximum based on digital technology and is giving rise to huge amount of digital data and automated services too. Artificial intelligence was earlier discovered for several well-known digital platforms for simplifying their process and serve more effectively to their users without any manual assistance, such as recognizing images on social media platform and giving automated suggestions on search engine result page. Sooner this advancement made small steps towards medical industry and artificial intelligence within no time was deployed in the medical sector for various processes and the major part of medical stream which is sorted and made swift with the help of AI is disease diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
Use of artificial intelligence in medical industry:
On time diagnosis of a disease can give effective solutions for the disease and can be really helpful to avoid the life risk included with the disease. Artificial intelligence has given a prompt solution for this by automating the image analysis and diagnosis. This technology eradicates the probability of error to the least and gives most appropriate results in least possible time. With the present developments our doctors are enabled to give immediate reports of tumor detection, MRIs. And CTs. Future studies have been depicted that we will have effective cancer preventions too.
Artificial intelligence has a potential to determine new solutions using old available data and studies. There are a number of studies conducted for the drug and treatment development for various diseases but none has got all the studies together to find the best possible solution by counting all together. This miracle is possible with the use of artificial intelligence that brings all the available data together and brings out the best possible results out of it, such as a possible drug, equipment, and a type of treatment.
Miracles of Artificial Intelligence in the Robotics Industry
Artificial intelligence and robotics are two distinct sectors but in the advancement of robotics there is a great role of AI. Well, Artificial Intelligence has worked at a great level for various sectors and has brought amazing transformations too. And when we talk about robotics, artificial intelligences act as the backbone for it. Now question might be how artificial intelligence can empower robotics? The answer you will get if you think which type of robot do you require? The one to which you need to feed command for every single ask, or the one which can grow itself, learn, and take decision required for the abased on the provided criteria. Thus, the impact of artificial intelligence on robotics is massive which is nowhere going to be slow down the pace of development. The major application of AI in robotics is to enhance the automation capabilities of various industries.
Few robotic capabilities that have been developed with the help of AI are listed below:
Sense and response:
Automation is being used in various business industries since several years but the traditional robots were bond to pick an object from a specified location and the further process to be followed as the predetermined data feed in the system. The robot was supposed to follow the same procedure till the object it is working for is known for the system. With the help of artificial intelligence, robots are now developed with the sensors and have a capability to identify objects and locations. It just needs details of the inputs to be processed and end result required by the machinery, the robot will set the process at its own by sensing the work environment without following any rigid procedure.
Mobility of a robot is no more a wonder for anyone as it is in practice since so many decades. With the help of artificial intelligence this mobility of robots has attained precession as never before. Even in complex and unpredicted work environment also these robots are now capable of giving the best and most precise outputs. AI has enhanced the existing robots to provide real time updates while travelling to the predetermined destination and also these bots are update to sense obstacles in advance and reroute by using its intelligence and reach the destination.
Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI) and its scopes
Artificial Super Intelligence or ASI is that branch of artificial intelligence that has the capability to perform the tasks that are impossible for the human mind to think or do. It is that aspect of intelligence that is more potent and refined than a human’s intelligence. Human’s intelligence can develop effectively and can adapt to changes faster. Superintelligence is capable of outperforming human intelligence; it is extremely powerful in doing that. Superintelligence is twice as powerful as human brains to conceptualize or idealize. The human brain is made of neurons and is limited to some billion neurons. Superintelligence, therefore, challenges this trait, which knows no limit.
Ever since 1970, when the term Artificial superintelligence was introduced, it has been referring to the capabilities of the computer that can outperform or even challenge the possibilities of the human mind. The technology undoubtedly imitates the human mind and action, but extensively challenges human brains and even surpass human ability. Artificial superintelligence goes further beyond and conceives a world of computer’s cognitive ability, which is much superior to human actions.
The researchers around the world are working towards developing Artificial Intelligence. The road to endless possibilities of Artificial Super Intelligence is paved by the ideas that machines can imitate the human mind, their way of working to the extent that shortly they can even supersede them. Under these circumstances, it is inevitable that Artificial Super Intelligence will be improved and much better in concluding that tasks that humankind would fail to achieve. ASI will function in smarter and better ways compared to the human.
In its first step, Artificial Super Intelligence aims to improve the cognitive abilities of the machine. There are multiple that are dedicated to imitating human brains and actions. It is to give understanding to the machines so that ASI can be a super success. The progressive development of Artificial Super Intelligence could not be deduced as the organizations working to improve the ASI hasn’t revealed anything about the development.
In the future, the ASI will become more conscious, self-sustainable, and self-learning, developing, and improving constantly. The spectrum is so wide that Artificial Super Intelligence may be seen controlling pollution, poverty, fighting disease, and more. It will be equipped to fight anyway, destroy catastrophe and meteors, as well as protect from an alien invasion. It will be smart enough to take control of the way, just as we had done to the world. Imagine a world where a human being will be insignificant in compared to their creation, i.e., Artificial Super Intelligence.
To conclude, we need to be alert and be more responsible when we develop such a system that has an ability to overpower the humankind. We need to understand and define the basic laws that will govern Artificial Super Intelligence so that we can take charge and determine its future. We must hold and restrict its future, alas we want to be destroyed by our own creation.
