Artificial Intelligence, Explained
The mere mention of Artificial Intelligence sparks debate about its pros and cons. Some believe that this technology will cause robots to rise against their makers, while others are more inclined to believe that it will help make our lives more convenient.
There is no doubt that AI has made a huge impact on our lives. We now have cities that are connected to one another, smart homes, not to mention that businesses are working in a more efficient manner. However, AI can only automate machines and processes to a certain extent. After all, they do not have the cognitive capabilities as humans do which means that they still rely on human intervention.
What is Artificial Intelligence?
Basically, AI is the ability of a machine or a computer program to think and learn. The concept of AI is based on the idea of building machines that are capable of thinking, acting, and learning just like us humans.
What’s so special about AI is that the Artificial Intelligence system does not need to be pre-programmed. This technology uses algorithms that can work using their own intelligence. It utilizes machine learning algorithms like Reinforcement learning algorithms as well as deep learning neural networks. Unlike traditional machines, the primary goal of AI is to create a smart computer system that works just like humans who can handle complex problems.
Examples of AI
There are those who assume that AI technology is still a long way from becoming reality. But you may not realize this is that AI is already implemented in our day-to-day lives. Here are a few examples to show that AI is being integrated into our lives today:
Roomba 980 Model Vacuum
The Roomba 980 model vacuum uses AI to scan the size of the living area. It detects any obstacles in its area as well as remembers the best path to cleaning the carpet. The vacuum bot can is also capable of determining how much it needs to clean based on the size of the room.
Newer Apple Watches
Another example of AI is found in the latest Apple Watches in the market. They come with a Fall Detection feature that notifies the nearest emergency team that you suffered from a hard fall. The watch makes use of its gyroscope and accelerometer to sense your fall while using algorithms to determine how hard a fall is. Many are not aware that AI has been saving countless lives already.
A smart home has its devices connected and accessed through one central point: a smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Among the devices that can be automated in a smart home are door locks, thermostats, television, cameras, home monitors, lights, as well as appliances like the refrigerator. All of these can be controlled from a central point.
Online virtual assistants are now being used in place of human agents. They are the ones that are now answering common FAQs like shipping, payments, cross-selling products, and more. By automating these queries, human agents can focus more on dealing with complex problems that customers face.
Will AI Take Over the World?
Some believe that Artificial Intelligence is still in its early stages. Others believe that it is already on the brink of taking over mankind. Truth be told, AI is not yet at that stage since there are several areas that still require human expertise. For starters, surgery still requires the expertise of a surgeon. Their years of experience, motor skills, and ability to assess a situation immediately cannot be duplicated by AI at the moment.
On the other hand, a person working alongside a machine or computer adds data into the system to achieve the desired result. This process becomes a continuous loop, with humans training, tuning, and testing algorithms that become smarter and more accurate over time.
As it evolves, AI will play an increasingly critical role in shaping the way we live, work, and play. However, we are far from a time when machines will supplant the global workforce, particularly when it comes to occupations that rely on aspects (perception, social intelligence, creativity) that are uniquely human.
The Importance of Combining Human and Artificial Intelligence
There are several industries that are benefiting from AI recently. Among these are medical, legal, and human resources. Although AI in the medical field is designed to enhance services, they are not qualified to replace medical practitioners. Researchers and developers are creating AI-based tools that can help with diagnosing and treating patients faster.
On the other hand, AI in the legal industry is beneficial in the sense that it can comb through massive data and collate and report accurately. This way, their human counterparts are put in a much better position to draw up agreements and other documentation with minimal error. Take note that human errors can be costly, especially when it comes to legal matters.
As for the human resources industry, AI is speeding up the processes by automating check-in and check-out, employee training, and finding the right candidate for the job. AI checks all data related to the applicants to find the most qualified for the job at hand. This way, the hiring process is shortened and companies will be able to find the right person to handle the work.
Again, AI technology relies on human intervention where information is fed from time to time. This helps AI to learn more based on the available data given.
AITS and Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions (AITS) understands that AI is still far from taking over humans. However, this has not stopped us from tapping into this advanced technology to create solutions that will improve our day-to-day lives. There is no doubt that AI is serving a purpose today depending on where and how it is used. From our homes to businesses to cities, the whole world is seeing AI being integrated into society seamlessly.
AITS has developed several AI-based solutions that are geared toward improving processes and procedures in an organization. Just to give you an idea of what to expect with AITS, here are a few of the solutions that we created:
CHOPE AI is a single automated system that lets you keep track of the number of people going in and out of your establishment. Aside from that, it allows you to book a room or a desk seamlessly. It also comes with a secure locker system that adds a layer of protection to your personal belongings and more.
It doesn’t require a lot of hardware to get it up and running. In fact, you can even use your smartphone to monitor the happenings in your building. Aside from that, the HR department will be able to detect who among their employees are at work, their performance, and more. Enrollment is easy and will not take up much time since it requires facial recognition.
Another option to consider is the SCAN 2i program that determines if any of the equipment in the Audio-Visual room needs to be repaired. It keeps track of their health in real-time to prevent any potential issues that may crop up. What makes this an important tool in your arsenal is the fact that it can prevent any costly repairs by predicting potential issues that need to be addressed as soon as possible.
Through predictive maintenance, organizations will be able to act on potential issues even before they happen through SCAN 2i. This way, you can assure your employees that everything is working smoothly. You don’t have to worry that your Audio-Visual equipment will shut down at the wrong time. SCAN 2i can easily catch any potential problems because they become worse.
Why Choose AITS
Those who are considering integrating Artificial Intelligence into their organization will not run out of companies to choose from. However, AITS stands out because we are offering high-quality AI-based solutions that will fit your budget. Just imagine the ease with which your employees can enter and exit your building with minimal interaction with security personnel.
