Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning explained

Up until the last 10 years or so, artificial intelligence was the stuff of science fiction: machines that could learn from a variety of interactions to make decisions and take actions that would normally require a human to execute. Because of that science fiction, there are those who fear AI as the beginning of the rise of intelligent robots. So, ethical development of AI has become an important issue in the IT community.

Artificial intelligence is having a big impact on application development. Today, we see AI in many different computing environments. It is also popping up in customer service call centers, in dialog boxes on websites, in the Industrial Internet of Things, as well as in our children’s toys, our homes and businesses. When coupled with automated processes, machines can take over many of the more mundane tasks businesses have to complete on a daily basis.

Of course, applications of AI are much broader and more sophisticated. AI can be found in automotive controls, such as applying the brake when your car is quickly approaching the one ahead. It’s found in data analytics, processing and management, where AI can learn to spot anomalies in data and trigger alerts and actions to remediate the issue.
