The goal of this project was to research a topic within data analytics that relates to what we have learned in class. I chose the area of artificial intelligence because of its impact on revolutionizing multiple industries. Artificial intelligence is the capability of machines to perform and think on a human level. AI has been very controversial in society because of the idea of “too much” intelligence. From my research I was taught all the different ways AI works and how the information is extracted and used. In MIS 2502 we focus a lot of big data and data mining which artificial intelligence seeks patterns within. AI builds on our class topics because instead of humans computing outputs with the technology as a tool the technology is now the main key player. We have already seen AI used in revolutionary aspects such as self-driving vehicles. Many worry about safety when human control is replaced by technology which is why testing is huge in this project. “Any test begins by sending out a driver in a conventionally driven car to map the route and road conditions,” Google software engineer Sebastian Thrun explained in a blog post. “By mapping features such as lane markers and traffic signs, the software in the car becomes familiar with the environment and its characteristics in advance” (Woollaston, 2016). However as far as we have come with artificial intelligence humans are still needed to perform certain steps when it comes to programing AI which takes some worries away from the idea of “too much” intelligence.
