Artificial Intelligence and It’s Advancements
AI or artificial intelligence is a field of study that relates to artificial or computer intelligence generated by machines and not the human brain. It is designed to mimic the human brain to solve problems and generate ideas. Artificial Intelligence is a controversial topic in this day and age with some fearing that computer generated intelligence will exceed the human mind and eventually surpass any human capabilities. However, with the help of AI we are now capable of having computer driven cars, and many other technology based items that help make life easier. Management Information Systems and artificial intelligence go hand in and because much of AI is based off of data analytics and predicting outcomes based on data. In class we are taught how to predict outcomes based on previous data collected and we also analyze and take into account any hazards that could affect that data outcome. Analyzing the risks and predicting while knowing why such things happen is a key part in MIS and AI. An example of AI in real life would be Tesla’s driving and driving assist cars. What these cars do is predict actions taken on the road by other drivers while detecting and adapting to hazards ahead. These computers use cameras and sensors around the car to be able to drive and see a full 360 degrees of the road. The cars programmers have programmed the computer in the car to spot hazards ahead and adapt to them accordingly. For example, if a child were to run across the street after a ball, the car would detect the child as a hazard and stop the car. These self-driving and driving assisted cars help reduce the number of accidents on the road while helping drivers navigate the road more smoothly and without any accidents. With the invention of AI, humans are now capable to exceeding the boundaries of human capabilities while helping ease day to day life of the average human being. As time goes on and technology becomes more advanced, humans everyday life will continue to become easier and computers will become more incorporated in a person’s daily life.
