Artificial Intelligence (AI) is also known as machine intelligence. It is an area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans, such as speech recognition and problem solving. There are a number of potential AI subsets but broadly they can be categorised as machine learning and deep learning.
Machine learning solves a task by learning from data. It is the practice of using algorithms to analyse data, learn from it and then make a determination or prediction about something. Basically, it involves 'training' computers to perform tasks. Deep learning is one of the main techniques fuelling the current AI boom. It involves passing data through 'neural networks', webs of algorithms that loosely copy the brain's structures.
AI is quickly changing just about every aspect of how we live our lives and our working lives are not exempt from this. Many businesses take up AI technology to try to reduce operational costs, increase efficiency, grow revenues and improve customer experience. However tech decision makers don’t always know where to start. Whether it is machine learning platforms, AI-optimised hardware, digital twin / AI modelling, Cyber defence, compliance or marketing automation.
Most AI modules are connected to other frameworks such as Cloud database and storage, big data, blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT). AI is an emerging technology and as such, it is changing at a fast pace so businesses need to keep up and AI developers need to up-skill.
