Artificial intelligence, also known as AI, is said to be the future of technology. It is defined as a computer or a robot that is able to process and carry out the same functions as intelligent beings aka humans (Encyclopædia Britannica). There have been many mentions of AIs in fiction and a lot of risks that are brought up, but what exactly can it do with it?
For a long time, the topic of robots being able to “think” on their own has been a part of many fictional stories. When asked about artificial intelligence, most people would likely imagine a robot that is in the form of a human. However, this is not true, it is all around us. Since computers were first invented and more and more information could be stored in them, artificial intelligence was constantly improving. It started off small, but now we can see the growth. There were many generations of computers, soon we will have one that will be more powerful than we could ever know. Even now there are AIs that it is almost impossible to disguise from a human. We have gotten so far that an article from Forbes called How AI Will Impact the Future of Work and Life? by Ashley Stanl explains how when we search something up in a search engine, an AI is sorting through all the possible results to find sources connected to what you are asking. Other than that, Stanl speaks about Facebook’s infamous system. We are surrounded by it, in our personal lives and career. It has become such an important tool, but even so, it has not reached the level of having a mind of its own just yet. They are only able to do what they are programmed to do.
The topics covered in MIS2502 use AI technology. MySQL, MongoDB, Python, and basically all topics use AIs to process data and get the information needed. By entering a query into the database, an AI returns the results that correspond with the query.
