Artificial Intelligence – What is it and Why is it Important

When a person hears of Artificial Intelligence, also known as AI, their first thought resembles something of human-like robots or a robot revolution, but it’s span is much larger than the stereotypes it faces. According to SAS, a leading company in Analytics, Artificial Intelligence provides a gateway for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs, and perform human-like tasks. These advancements in technology make it possible to increase the efficiency of a system for a multitude of reasons, including but not limited to, the analysis of more and deeper data, an increase in accuracy, automating repetitive learning and discovery, etc. There are many ways that Artificial Intelligence is implemented within a classroom setting, more specifically in MIS 2502: Data Analytics. The purpose of Data Analytics is to find or draw meaningful information or conclusions from the raw data facing examination.  AI helps facilitate these findings and relates to many of the topics discussed in MIS 2502, including “The Things You Can Do With Data” and “Advanced Data Analytics.” The first topic discusses the transformation of data into information, something that can be done efficiently using Artificial Intelligence. The next topic goes into more detail about the implications of the data interpreted and how it can be used to make predictions for future decisions. AI analyzes deeper data, allowing for decision trees, cluster analysis, and association rules to utilize all information to provide the most accurate results. Artificial Intelligence can also be applied outside a classroom setting. Many companies utilize Artificial Intelligence as a means of increasing the quality of their machinery, and as a result, the lives of their customers. For example, the Health Care industry uses AI to personalize medicine and X-ray readings, giving their customers access to personal health care assistants that help facilitate healthy living. This and many other practices of Artificial Intelligence are changing the world into a more technologically efficient place to live. The world is becoming more progressive with its leading technology and AI should continue to development, rather than being feared.
