Demystifying Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence systems are part and parcel of the fast revolution of the Technological industry in this 21st century. Intelligent systems are technologically advanced machines that make out and respond to the world around them.

Similarly, an intelligent system is a machine with an embedded, internet-connected computer, that can gather and analyze data and communicate with other systems.

Other criteria for intelligent systems range from the capacity to learn from experience, security, connectivity, ability to adapt according to current data, to, the capacity of remote monitoring and management.   

Intelligent systems employ the logical structure of ideas, assumptions, and hypotheses applied in different situations. This fact cannot be refuted as it takes many forms, ranging from automated vacuums such as the Roomba to facial recognition programs, to Amazon’s personalized shopping suggestions.

Furthermore, one way that intelligent systems can make out their environment is through vision. In this context, we will highlight the advantages and opportunities created by intelligent systems as well as the disadvantages of intelligent systems.  

Digital assistant.  

Intelligent systems have highly advanced technology as organizations opt to use ‘Avatars’ which are replicas or digital assistants, who are in a position to interact with the users, thus saving the need for human resources.

Also, artificial thinkers’ emotions do not interfere with the decision-making process. The complete absence of an emotional aspect on this intelligent system is automatically justified; it makes robots think logically and take the right action as programmed to do.

Emotions are associated with moods that can cloud judgment and affect human efficiency. This is completely ruled out of machine intelligence.  

  Error Reduction.  

Artificial intelligence plays a great role in error reduction and the chance of reaching accuracy with a greater deal of precision is a possibility. Intelligent systems are fed with information and are sent to explore safely.

Since they are metallic, they are more resistant and have a greater ability to endure minimal space and hostile conditions.

They are created and designed in such a way that they cannot be modified, hacked, or get disfigured or breakdown in a hostile environment.  

 Repetitive Jobs.  

Repetitive jobs are monotonous and can be carried out with the help of machine intelligence. Did you know that a machine thinks faster than human beings?

Thus, the machine has got a higher chance of being programmed to multi-task, unlike human beings. A machine can also be employed to carry out dangerous tasks.

Their parameters, unlike humans, can be adjusted as their speed and time are calculations based on parameters only. When humans play a video game or run a computer-controlled robot, we are interacting with artificial intelligence.

In the game you are playing, the computer is your opponent or rather you select a human opponent to play against. For example, PlayStation.

Machine intelligence plans the game movements according to your movements. We can as well as consider gaming as a great significance of the use of artificial intelligence.  

Medical applications  

The medical field covers a vast area of the applications of artificial intelligence. Medics in hospitals treat their patients with the help of intelligent systems.

This educates them on the side effects of various medicines. Also, a medic is often trained with artificial surgery simulators.

Artificial Intelligence Systems

It finds a huge application in monitoring and detecting neurological disorders as it can stimulate brain functions. Robotics is used often in helping mental health patients to come out of depression and remain healthy.  

No Breaks  

All human beings take breaks since they experience restlessness, lack of motivation, depression and fatigue. Whenever you experience such a factor, you are advised to always have a break.

Artificial intelligent systems, unlike humans, do not require frequent breaks and refreshments. They are programmed for long hours and can continuously perform without getting bored or destructed or even tired.  

Daily application  

The computer revolution in these times is redirected to solving our daily complications by mastering our routine and responding accordingly.

Computed methods for automated reasoning, learning, and perception have become a trend in our everyday lives. A good example is a chatbot within a website programmed for easier communication purposes.

We have our lady Sheila from Brainverse and our lady Zuri from Safaricom. We are also hitting the road for long trips with the help of the Global Positioning System (GPS).

Artificial Intelligence can predict what you are going to type and correct all human errors in spelling. That is, the autocorrect feature on a keyboard.  

Difficult exploration.  

Artificial intelligence and the science of robotics can be put to use in mining and other fuel exploration processes. Moreover, these complex machines can be used for exploring the floor of the Indian Ocean and hence overcoming human limitations.

These intelligent systems are programmed in a way that they work tirelessly and also do not wear out easily.  

 Below are the disadvantages of Artificial Intelligent systems.  

  1. High cost.  

It is quite expensive to create artificial intelligence systems since they require huge costs as they are very complex machines and get smarter by the day.  

   2.    No replicating humans  

Intelligence is believed to be a gift of nature. An ethical argument continues on whether human intelligence is to be replicated or not.  

   3.   No improvement with experience  

Unlike humans, artificial intelligence cannot be improved with experience. With time, it can lead to wear and tear. It stores a lot of data but the way it can be accessed and used is very different from human intelligence.

Care and concerns are not present in the machine intelligence dictionary. There is no sense of belonging or togetherness or a human touch.

They fail to distinguish between a hardworking individual and an inefficient individual.  

    4.  No original creativity  

Do you want creativity or imagination? These are not the forte of artificial intelligence but it can help you design and create; It is no match for the power of thinking that the human brain has or even the originality of a creative mind.  

    5.  Unemployment.  

The replacement of humans with machines can lead to large-scale unemployment. People with nothing to do can lead to the destructive use of their creative minds.

The rise of artificially intelligent systems replaces a huge workforce, thus resulting in individuals losing their creative power and becoming lazy.
