MIS 2502 Section 004
Nowadays, most people have access to social media software, such as Facebook, Instagram, Waze, and the host of apps found on their phone. These softwares, so called applications, have some level of artificial intelligence (AI). The programmed AI shows the user an advertisement that the user might be interested in, or shows the fastest route based on traffic conditions. AI has improved people’s lives more by helping people be more efficient. Additionally, it can teach itself to do the work of a human and they are more accurate and faster than when a person does the work. Hence, AI will lead this generation into the next advanced innovative society.
Throughout MIS 2502, we have learned with R how to interpret data and make decisions. With the help of the program, the work has gotten much easier and more accurate, but we still have to follow our intuition when we make decisions such as, how many clusters we should have to interpret most accurately, or how many nods we need to have within a decision tree, or deciding whether the chart is junk or not. All these decisions can be taught and learned from experiences. However, there is still a chance of making mistakes or interpreting incorrectly. With the help of AI, we can minimize the risk so that we can maximize our scarce resources.
More than 90 percent of the data we have today was generated within last two years. It is nearly impossible for humans to have access to all that data and make precise decisions interpreting them. However, AI can not only have access to all the information but can also interpret and make the most accurate decisions, better than a human’s intuition. For example, Google’s DeepMind has created an AI called AlphaGo that plays a board game called “Go” which has infinite combinations of moves. AlphaGo had access to records of all the games ever played and learns from them. It also has access to the internet so it can learn new moves instantly as it is playing the game. Ultimately, make its own decision that it thinks has the highest possibility of winning. AlphaGo played against Lee Sedol, the Go grandmaster, and the result was victorious. This kind of moment shows that an AI is more accurate and effective than a person who is at the highest level one can be.
The world has revolutionized rapidly in the last 100 years. During that period, humans have developed tools to make the revolution of industry much easier and faster. Now, there is AI, a new tool that humans have developed to aid the revolution. With AI, we will accomplish more than what we have in the past.
