Artificial intelligenceArtificial intelligence has been the goal of scientists and technology experts for many decades. We have forever dreamed of creating intelligent devices, machines and objects that could simulate the human mind and offer help in daily tasks that may provide an outlet to extend mankind toward something bigger and better in the future.
We have seen examples of Artificial intelligence in movies and read about them in books ever since we were children and the curiosity for this sort of man-built marvel has always been of interest to us. We know about robots and machines, automobiles or devices that think or simulate the thinking process of the human brain in order to create an appropriate response to our requests. That is what we all think about when we hear about A.I.
But what is Artificial intelligence exactly? The definition refers to the intelligence of machines and a specific branch of computer science that has the main aim of creating such things. The term 'intelligent' actually refers to the same quality in human beings, as we as a species are capable of intelligent thinking and acting. A.I. means to talk about the creation and development of smart objects.
The best example of the application of Artificial intelligence is robotics. Creating smart robots has forever been the dream of modern man and the opportunities that such pieces of hardware offer mankind are infinite. There are already many existent robots in the world, from those who look exactly like the ones we’re used to see in movies, to some that look like nothing more than simple boxes.
We have robots set deep into space that are currently exploring distant planets like Uranus and Neptune, we have rovers running around Mars and robots playing table tennis in Japan. Other devices have also made a step forward into creating intelligence, like the new Apple iPhone 4S who has smart software capable of following a person’s verbal commands. We hope that many other developments will be possible in the future.
