Artificial intelligence is the intelligence that is displayed by machines , in contrast with the natural intelligence (NI) displayed by humans and other animals. In computer science AI research is defined as the study of “intelligent agents”: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal .
One way that AI is created is by the genetic breeding model . In this model there is a builder bot and a teacher bot . In the start the builder bot just randomly builds bots and those bots are sent to the teacher bot . However the teacher bot cannot really teach because if the teacher bot could do the problem it was designed to teach then it wouldn’t need to teach it . Instead it just tests each of the bots and sends the best ones back to builder bot . The builder bot copies the successful ones with some tweaks and the process is repeated .
Some examples of AI are personal assistants like Siri , and Cortana and others such as Alpha Go Zero . The personal assistants usually learn from human conversations or past conversations with other personal assistants . Alpha go zero is especially interesting because it never got input from humans . Meaning that it did not get examples from its creators beforehand but instead just played games against itself over and over until it eventually got so good that it beat every other version of alpha go that came before it .
Some people think that in the future probably there will be robot servants that are equipped with Artificial Intelligence and humans will not need to go outside anymore . Or as some very intelligent people like Elon Musk think , Ai might turn evil and destroy humanity . I am more optimistic about this topic so I think that Ai will probably increase the standards of life even further and as a consequence humans will become more relaxed .
