If they had told us that we would be able to solve not all of them, but a non-desirable amount of problems by a click, in all probability we would never have believed it.
However, everything evolves and, as usual in our history, everything changes. So also the role of Artificial Intelligence has evolved, a bit because of our needs, a bit because of the desire to reach ever higher peaks of innovation.
We often do not realize it or find it difficult to underline it, but Artificial Intelligence takes more and more space in several fields because it innovates according to our needs.
If we want to give a simple definition to those ones who don’t know what we are talking about, AI ??is the ability of a technological system to carry out tasks and activities peculiar to the mind and human ability.
If we consider the IT side, we can define it as the discipline able to create machines that can “work” independently.
If we want to classify it …
Assuming what we said, an Artificial Intelligence should be able to act and think in a human way as well as rational way (exploiting logic and contemplating processes that lead to the best result). If we want to classify it, we can distinguish between strong Artificial Intelligence and weak Artificial Intelligence.
Weak Artificial Intelligence
It’s the AI able to simulate some of the human cognitive functions without reaching the real intellectual abilities.
Strong Artificial Intelligence
It’s the AI able to develop its own intelligence. In this case, in fact, we are not talking about emulation, but about autonomous and conscious development of the self.
Classifying AI also means being able to understand the basic distinction between Machine Learning and Deep Learning. The first one is characterized by a learning model that acts as a training for Artificial Intelligence which is not programmed in advance. The second one, instead, allows the AI ??to emulate the human mind.
The fields of AI application are now multiple and increasingly functional:
– Sales: through expert systems one allows the consumer to solve the problem without the human intervention of the expert.
– Communication: the fusion between the two elements was essential, so much so as to give life to the IAM which is able to collect, understand feelings and rework services to guarantee better and always new experiences.
– Healthcare: the contribution of AI to the health field has realized diagnosis, treatment and treatments more and more effective, personalized and quick.
– Security: AI systems allow data to be collected and processed to implement both public and private security networks.
Business stuff …
One of the applications of AI that we like most the design field, of course.
Although the role of man in the development of design is fundamental, we cannot deny that Artificial Intelligence plays a good supporting role in this field. Designers and architects today have the chance to combine creativity with multiple disciplines to create innovative projects.
A very good example of AI application in the design field is Generative Design, or the evolution of design and planning. In fact, the software uses algorithms able to formulate ideas and suggestions on the subject by contextualizing the proposal. Of course, we are only at the beginning, but this does not mean that one day we cannot reach an intelligence able to of produce a product or drawing up a project with characteristics and features comparable to those that can be generated by the human mind.
