TheAISpace is a team of young entrepreneurs and developers who can’t contain their endless fascination with the future of Artificial Intelligence. Many people are confused by AI, and some are even scared. We’re here to clear up the mystery – AI can, and will help you in your day to day life. What’s the first thing you think of when someone says Artificial Intelligence? The Matrix? iRobot? Machines taking over? Sadly, this misinformation has been spread and has created a culture of skepticism around AI.
But why don’t we look at how AI impacts our day to day lives. When you’re on Facebook, do you think Mark Zuckerberg has a diary of your favorite activities? Well technically, he does – but it’s a machine learning diary. When you ask Siri for directions, do you think there’s a back end human actually calculating it for her? AI has the ability to dramatically increase the rate at which we can process data, and robots taking over the world is the least of our current concerns.
You have thousands of different dog breeds in the world. If I gave you a list of all the dog breeds with accompanying images, it might take you a year or more to memorize each breed’s unique characteristics. But if I said to the computer, “Here are a thousand Golden Retrievers, two thousand Poodles, and three thousand Dalmatians,” the computer has the ability to process that information in fractions of a second and pick up on the fact that Dalmations have spots, Poodles have long legs, and Golden Retrievers, well, don’t have spots. That's really it. Processing data at superhuman speeds to make informed decisions quicker than humans would ever be able to.
Would be nice to sleep in an extra half hour, no? Or a program that could keep track on your inventory of groceries at home, and automatically order milk when you were running low based on expiration dates and prices. Pretty cool right? Kick back, relax and watch Artificial Intelligence save you time and give you freedom.
