What is Artificial Intelligence?


What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence is the science and engineering of making computer machines able to perform tasks which normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.

It is a branch of the Computer Science that aims to develop intelligent computer machines.

Scope of Artificial Intelligence:

The ultimate effort is to make computer programs that can solve problems and achieve goals in the world, as well as humans.

There is a scope in developing the machines in game playing, speech recognition machine, language detection machine, computer vision, expert systems, robotics and many more.

What should you study before or while learning AI?

Study mathematics, especially mathematical logic. The more you learn about sciences, e.g. physics or biology, the better. For the biological approaches to AI, study psychology and the physiology of the nervous system. Learn some programming languages--at least C, Lisp and Prolog. It is also a good idea to learn one basic machine language. Jobs are likely to depend on knowing the languages currently in fashion. In the late 1990s, these included C++ and Java.

Career Opportunities:

One can expect jobs at public and private sectors which are American Association for Artificial Intelligence, European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence and many more.

Job roles:

  • Game Programmer
  • Robotic Scientist
  • Computer Scientist
