What is artificial intelligence?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a multidisciplinary area that combines branches of science such as logic and computer science with more humanistic ones such as philosophy. It is a field of knowledge that tries to design and create artificial entities that are capable of solving problems or performing certain tasks on their own, using human behavior algorithms.

According to some studies, spending on artificial intelligence will double in the coming years. Companies are seeking to be more agile and innovative at a somewhat particular moment in history.

Information collection is the main headache for those who have to train artificial intelligence. Some of the objectives set for artificial intelligence include providing a better experience to customers or helping other companies and people to improve and facilitate their work, functions and daily tasks.

These are some of the most common applications of artificial intelligence:

- Speech recognition" Something that is already applied and that works and improves every day. Virtual assistants that act through voice recognition such as Siri, Alexa or Cortana.
- Machine learning: It is a theoretical field and a branch of artificial intelligence that is responsible for developing the techniques necessary for computers to learn from models designed by humans.
- Artificial vision: This is something that, in part, is already being applied in the automotive sector, for autonomous driving systems or different processes related to the scanning of documents and credit cards.
- Natural language processing: As with machine learning, it is about making machines, virtual bots, learn and develop a way of communicating much closer to ours.
- Autonomous robots: There are already small autonomous robots that make many aspects of our lives easier. Think of something as simple as a Roomba, for which its manufacturer has used AI in the latest models to make them much more efficient.

Keep in mind that, over the years and technological evolution, it is likely that the applications and uses of this type of technology will be many more. Become an AI Developer and participate in the change!
