We have all likely heard of 'artificial intelligence' or 'AI'. But what does it actually mean?
AI is everywhere
The term AI (Artificial Intelligence) exploded across the world’s news feeds in 2023 and these technologies have since been integrated into virtually every part of our lives.
What are the types of AI?
There are two types of AI:
• Predictive AI – which analyses historical data to enable accurate future prediction
• Generative AI - which creates new content based on models and prompts
Can AI develop a mind of its own?
The debate has raged as to whether AI can think like a human today or whether it will become a possibility in the future. The Turing test, pioneered by computer scientist Alan Turing, was designed to put this to the test.
Will AI one day take over the world?
The fear of AI taking over our jobs and even our humanity is an understandable one. However, the same fear gripped us at the advent of the personal computer, but computers ended up creating more jobs than they took.
