Artificial intelligence is shaping up to be the busiest buzzword of 2016. AI refers to a computer’s ability to not only process information in pre-programmed ways, but also look for new information, craft its own instructions to interpret it, and then go ahead and take whatever actions it thinks fit. By constantly ingesting new information no matter where it comes from or what format it comes in, the computer is able to “think” about problems and come up with plausible solutions.
But is this just hype around advanced technology to process big data? Are people grossly underestimating how hard a task creating human-like intelligence is, and overestimating how close we are to achieving this?
In this presentation from Artificial Intelligence for Enterprise 2016, Professor Ryszard Kowalczyk, Intelligent Agents Technology Group, Swinburne University of Technology, delves into the nitty gritty around the term ‘Artificial Intelligence’ and whether it will live up to expectations and definitions of its capabilities.
