For some years now, we have heard different technological concepts so often that they have become familiar to us, such as Artificial Intelligence or AI for short. But do we know what it means? Would we know how to explain the definition of this idea to someone else? In this article, we will show you what it is, what its influence is in today\'s world and, therefore, in our lives, and how we can differentiate between what is possible and what is science fiction. Stay reading these following lines because you will be able to answer all these questions through them.
Definition of artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence, according to Wikipedia, is "intelligence carried out by machines." If we look at it, this idea clarifies the artificial part, but not the intelligence part. How do we then define Intelligence for a machine? According to the same source, "when a machine mimics the cognitive functions humans associate with other human minds, such as perceiving, reasoning, learning, and problem-solving."
On the other hand, we have a different perspective on the previous idea. Iberdrola defines it as the combination of algorithms designed to create machines with the same capabilities as human beings.
If we read both ideas, we see that this is not entirely possible and that today it sounds like science fiction. But in reality, it is not so much if we divide this definition into different parts. What exactly are we referring to when we talk about artificial intelligence? We will show you below.
When we refer to perceiving, we are talking about collecting data from a source.
When we refer to reasoning, we are talking about programming a code that obtains a result from inputting the data we have collected.
When we refer to learning, we are talking about improving those codes to obtain better results.
And when we refer to problem-solving, we are talking about the actions performed due to the different programs that a human being has developed.
At present, we are working on the following lines of work concerning this concept:
Machines that allow to speed up decision-making based on data.
Devices that perform tasks in a similar way to people.
Machines that perceive, reason, and act.
Machines that rationally imitate human behavior.
How has artificial Intelligence been introduced in companies?
The current application of artificial intelligence (AI) is extensive, especially since technology\'s irruption in our lives. The systems we have in our facial detection devices and assistants such as Siri are good examples of this to understand. The assistant can respond to a user\'s questions and, with the information it gathers from our questions and answers, it can specify and improve future behaviors. How else, during our viewing of web pages, will we see advertisements for products we happen to be looking for?
This field for the company has opened the door to the improvement of impressive results. The ability of these systems to quickly collect data, analyze them according to patterns and perform actions has revolutionized worlds such as sales, marketing, and the stock market. Let\'s not be surprised. Money is moved in tenths of a second and not based on a person\'s decision but a machine.
It is also important to note that it has completely changed the concept of customer service. Chatbots are computer systems that allow a company to serve users more quickly and offer them more effective and efficient responses. Every one of us, when we call companies or telephone companies, encounters a system that, with a series of questions, analyzes our answers and directs us to the most appropriate person. And what many people do not know is that, on many occasions, they do it with a voice that seems to be a natural person, and, however, it is not.
Advantages of Artificial Intelligence
The main advantage of its development in AI systems can be found in its union with another new technological concept, the famous Big Data. Thanks to the latter, we have a vast amount of information that, at present, humans are not able to take advantage of. Artificial Intelligence can analyze it and perform actions with it. Still, the most important thing, and what brings it closer and closer to a "human" facet, is to analyze the result of the actions taken and modify future decision-making based on these.
