Artificial intelligence In the Enterprise

Artificial Intelligence

Since the dawn of the computer age we have been enthralled by the prospect of Artificial Intelligence. It dominated the science fiction of the 1950s and 1960s, and it was a passion so strong that it bled into the fabric of day-to-day existence. Everyone wanted their own robot servant, everyone got a little giddy at the prospect of a walking, talking, thinking robot.

The Golden Age of Science Fiction did get a few things right about the future. But while the modern world is not too far removed from the imagined utopias of Arthur C. Clark and H. G. Wells, we are lacking that one key feature: an intelligent, calculating, man-made brain.

At least, that’s what many of us believe. The truth is that AI is all around us. It powers many of the things we rely on and the companies that we love. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to use the internet or play computer games, and the manufacturing world would look decidedly poorer as well.

So, while we don’t quite have a robot in every home, our lives are still ruled by some form of AI. It may not be as advanced or as intelligent as those aforementioned sci-fi authors had hoped, but it’s more advanced than many of us realize.

And at least we don’t have to worry about that AI overthrowing humanity and taking over the world. Not yet, anyway. Infographic discovered via ReadWrite.com
