A QUICK DIVE INTO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Let’s Explore A Bit of The Background
Decades ago, Alan Mathison Turing, referred to as the “father of computer science” asked a simple question: “Can Machines THINK??”. Since then, the revolution of AI consequently began in antiquity, with myths, stories, and rumors of artificial beings endowed with intelligence. But in 1956 the term “Artificial Intelligence” was first coined by the father of AI, John McCarthy in an official conference at Dartmouth College. According to him, ” It is the science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs. It is related to the similar task of using computers to understand human intelligence, but AI does not have to confine itself to methods that are biologically observable.”
We can say that the logical framework and conceptual underpinning of Artificial Intelligence (AI) was actually a real question; Humans solve issues and make judgments using the facts at their disposal and reason, so why can’t machines?
Initially, the goal was to build intelligent machines and test their intelligence but now the target is to develop the capacity to forecast and make decisions without being specifically programmed to do so and it’s about to become reality.
Today, in the “big data” era, we have the ability to gather enormous amounts of data that would be difficult for a person to process. All hail to Artificial Intelligence for becoming extremely successful across a number of industries, including technology, banking, marketing, and entertainment.
Therefore, what does the future hold?
According to a research by scientists at the University of Oxford, Artificial Intelligence will be better than humans at translating languages by 2024, writing school essays by 2026, selling goods by 2031, writing a bestselling book by 2049, and conducting surgeries by 2053 and this all is underway.
In Pakistan, there is a growing number of industries and businesses that are on the verge of exploring the potential of artificial intelligence and how it has the tendency to revolutionize our lives as well as the way we interact with the latest modern technologies.
Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, talked about his company’s practices and his personal take on the future of Artificial intelligence.
“I think that AI is going to unlock a huge amount of positive things, whether that’s helping to identify and cure diseases, to help cars drive more safely, to help keep our communities safe,”
And I couldn’t agree more with his overarching optimistic point of view because Innovation-productivity is a never-ending phenomenon and the AI platform wars will only intensify.
Technitute and AI
Well pleased that the National Center of Artificial Intelligence (NCAI) Pakistan in collaboration with the University of Engineering and Technology (UET) is in the service of AI for years. Through their collaboration, Technitute was built to study the most recent technical developments such as deep learning models, image processing techs, speech recognition systems, semantic web, data science, robotics, recommendation systems, machine translation, and 3D sensing in consumer games and artificial intelligence.
Technitute has also gird up the loins to coach the aspirants for implementing and conducting experiments with the algorithms in several Python projects, machine learning, deep learning, and reinforcement learning for different practical applications including robotics, gameplay, and graphics under the supervision of professionals. Eventually, the trainees will learn about principles for turning training data into effective automated predictions and models.
The actual motive of the team Technitute is to create the brains, “The AI experts”, with the habitual personality to strive for positive changes, eagerness to learn new techs by empowering them to change and challenge current ways of working the way they perceive things. Because we believe: Predicting the future isn’t magic. it’s-artificial intelligence!
