Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to enhance the quality of an individual’s life and the efficiency of public services. This interesting topic came to us from the Deccan Chronicle in their article, “How AI and humans can work together.”

AI of the past represented robots and monsters with nefarious intentions or systems gone rogue. Today’s AI is about data science and machine learning systems. The machines haven’t taken over. They are, however, seeping their way into our lives, affecting how we live, work and entertain ourselves. From voice-powered personal assistants to more underlying and fundamental technologies such as behavioral algorithms, suggestive searches and autonomously-powered self-driving vehicles.

While the deep-learning technology behind many of today’s AI advances seems new, it has been around for decades. A true AI system is one that can learn on its own. True AI can improve on past iterations, getting smarter and more aware, allowing it to enhance its capabilities and its knowledge.
