The topic of Artificial Intelligence is at the top of its hype curve. There are many good reasons for that; it is exciting, promising and a bit scary at the same time. In a series of blogs we will shine some light on different aspects of AI.
Part 1: Artificial Intelligence Defined
The most used terminology around AI
Various publications claim that AI knows what we want to buy, that it can create Netflix series cure cancer, or that it eventually take our jobs or even destroy mankind. The problem–and at the same time opportunity-with the label AI is that its definition is not rigorous and very broad. A person living in the 1980s would probably consider the navigation system of our car as a form of Artificial Intelligence, whereas nowadays we don’t. We see the same happening with speech and image recognition, natural language recognition, game engines and other technologies that are becoming more and more common and embedded in everyday technology.
