AI stands for Artificial Intelligence. It refers to the field of computer science that focuses on the development of intelligent machines that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. Furthermore,  AI encompasses a wide range of techniques and approaches aimed at creating systems capable of perceiving their environment, reasoning, learning, and making decisions or taking actions based on that information.

We can categorize AI into two broad types: Narrow AI and General AI

  1. We commonly refer to Narrow AI as Weak AI, describing AI systems designed for specific tasks or problems within a limited domain. Examples of narrow AI include speech recognition systems, image recognition algorithms, recommendation systems, and virtual personal assistants like Siri or Alexa. These systems excel in their specific area but lack the ability to generalize their knowledge and skills to other domains.
  2. We often call General AI Strong AI or Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). It involves AI systems that can understand, learn, and apply knowledge across various domains, performing at or above human levels in cognitive tasks. Additionally, general AI aims to replicate human-like intelligence, including reasoning, problem-solving, creativity, and adaptability. While significant progress has been made in AI research, achieving true General AI remains an ongoing challenge.

Subsequently, Artificial Intelligence techniques include machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision, expert systems, and more. Machine learning, in particular, is a subset of AI that focuses on enabling systems to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed. Deep learning is a specific type of machine learning that utilizes artificial neural networks with multiple layers to extract and learn hierarchical representations of data.

AI finds applications in various domains, including healthcare, finance, manufacturing, transportation, entertainment, and many others. It has the potential to revolutionize industries, enhance decision-making processes, automate repetitive tasks, and bring about significant societal and economic advancements.
