What is artificial intelligence?
The digitization in the world in general and the development of lightning-fast computers has over the past 10 years helped pave the way for artificial intelligence (AI). But what is AI really?
AI is an area of computer science that works to develop intelligent machines and software that think and act humanlike. Voice recognition, learning, perspective, planning, and problem-solving are some of the areas that scientists are trying to emulate.
You must distinguish between two different types of AI: strong and weak. Weak AI is characterized as AI-technology that can deliver limited human actions. An example of this is Amazon’s voice software, Alexa, which can change songs on Spotify or adjust the light in your room. Strong AI, on the other hand, is software that thinks and not just simulate human intelligence. So far, strong AI is just a hypothesis as it has not been invented yet and we do not know if it will ever become a reality.
