What Is AI? | Artificial Intelligence For Beginners

Do you remember the first time that you saw R2D2 and C3P0 from Star Wars? These two robots exhibited human-like behavior as they interacted with people and the world around them. How about when the whole world was subject to machine control in The Matrix? That's a pretty frightening concept. These movies, like many others, have their own depictions of what Artificial Intelligence looks like, and means to us as a society.

The term Artificial Intelligence has been popularized in books and movies to depict futuristic settings where machines take over the world, or live with us side by side as if they were humans. But did you know that Artificial Intelligence is actually here with us, today? That we as a society and a culture are already embracing Artificial Intelligence in our daily lives, everyday? We no longer live in a world where Artificial Intelligence is just a story in our books, or on the big screen when we go to the movies. But if Artificial Intelligence is already here, what is it really like? How does it work? How does Artificial Intelligence actually compare to the fictional representations of AI in our culture?

Artificial Intelligence was created in order to learn like us... So that we don’t have to tell Spotify what songs we like. So that we don’t have to constantly input traffic conditions and manually search for routes to work. So that we don’t have to teach Alexa how to understand our speech patterns. So that we don’t have to personally map every single roadway and driving scenario for self-driving cars to know how to drive. Artificial Intelligence is designed to automatically learn these types of functions on its own. Watch this video I created about Artificial Intelligence and learn with me.
