What can AI Accomplish?
Specifically, which tasks can artificial intelligence accomplish? Here is a general list of the items (in no particular order):
- Tasks including visual and audio perception are commonplace in today's world. For example, the problem of converting the human voice into words on the screen involves intelligence and learning because the computer has to learn each person's specific dialect and tone. Other artificial intelligence tasks include processing, understanding and translating of a language. These too have been accomplished to various extents. Numerous translating programs exist in today's market (Altavista's translating program for example) although none of them are perfect or can spot idioms like a human.
- Among the more applicable tasks of AI right now include gaming and mathematics. Artificial intelligence has dominated these subjects because in mathematics and in most games, rules are straightforward. The more popular games that AIs have dominated include chess (think of Deep Blue), checkers, and backgammon. Artificial intelligence has been helpful in such mathematical subjects as geometry, calculus, and logic (predicate calculus).
- Future concepts being explored by the field right now include advanced topics that only humans with degrees would understand. These subjects include financial analysis (choosing stocks on the stock market for example), medical study (an example being the ability to diagnose a sickness with as much or more precision than a human doctor), architectural designing, etc. The list goes on. Name a prominent field of study, and studies will or have been made by the people of artificial intelligence. Soon Artificial Intelligence will touch every facet of our complex lives.
