What is AI and how is it changing our lives?

Simply put, Artificial Intelligence is the ability of a machine to perform a task that would typically require human reasoning and decision making skills. Systems created with AI systems showcase human-adjacent skills like planning, learning, reasoning, problem-solving, knowledge representation, perception, motion, and manipulation.

Today, AI is used everywhere! From the simple recommendations and prompts on shopping or streaming websites about what you may like, to understanding what you say to virtual assistants, to recognising what is in a photo, spot spam, or even detecting credit card fraud.

AI can be found at work in Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant and Cortana. Have you used any of these? 

Today, AI is set to transform our transport too! Studies indicate that AI is incredibly beneficial in reducing road accidents. Cars that use AI are equipped with features like Cruise Control, Parking Assist, Lane Guidance etc. Smart cars like Tesla offer advanced features like self-driving, auto-braking or acceleration and voice commands.

AI is useful in protecting the environment too! 

From using tiny electronics to track turtles to catching wildlife poachers with drones, scientists are using game-changing tech to solve some of the biggest challenges in conservation.

“Computer science and engineering can create new tools that allow us to meet the speed and scale of the problems we’re facing,” says Alex Dehgan, co-founder of Conservation X Labs, a US-based non-profit startup that develops conservation technology. “We can now connect our forests, rivers and oceans in the way that smart homes and cities are connected.
