Artificial Intelligence

Whether in medical technology, mechanical engineering or marketing, artificial intelligence, or AI for short, is being talked about more and more everywhere these days. But what is it exactly? And what is it good for?

Artificial intelligence is not that easy to explain, for the simple reason that there is not even a precise definition of “intelligence” yet.  

AI is a branch of computer science that deals with the automation of intelligent behavior and machine learning. It refers to the attempt to replicate certain decision-making structures to humans. In a sense, it is a computer programmed to learn experiences, to handle tasks independently, and also to adapt to new incoming information.

Machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), and deep learning (DL) are technologies that belong to the AI landscape. 

The difference between weak and strong intelligence

Weak intelligence are algorithms that are capable of answering specific questions, having previously learned the solution paths on their own. They are powerful systems with a narrow field of application. As a rule, they are used to make processes more efficient. We encounter them readily in our everyday lives (professional and private). Examples include weather apps, digital assistants, Alexa, Siri, or self-driving cars.

Strong intelligence, on the other hand, describes what we know from science fiction. A machine/robot that is able to think strategically, abstractly, creatively, and accomplish complex tasks. In fact, machines can already do some tasks, such as data processing, better than humans, but strong AI is so far only fully realizable on the silver screen.
