How Does Artificial Intelligence Work?



Artificial intelligence is a phrase that will get you different reactions in different circles. In the tech world, it’s the next big thing that will take society beyond anything we could have imagined. For doomsdayers, it’s a future filled with robots destroying everything we’ve worked for. A lot of fear comes from the unknown, so to dispel any wild ideas and begin to think about the true power of AI, let’s find out how it works.



1. The goal of artificial intelligence is to allow machines to replicate human reasoning.
First, why AI? Why are we putting so much effort into it? The intention of artificial intelligence is to be able to give machines the ability to “think” like we do. Human cognitive abilities are complex and convoluted, which makes training a machine more difficult. The reason we use machines is to help us get things done, and the less we have to baby them through more difficult projects that require a level of intelligence, the more we can accomplish.



2. Everything’s in the data.
AI learns through data. Data is at the heart of the operation, and any type of artificial intelligence is only as good as the information it is given. Algorithms tell the machine how to work through that data, and the algorithms are created by people to solve a problem. Artificial intelligence works according to the steps outlined by the algorithm in order to process the data. Over time, the AI will learn to identify patterns which can help it work more efficiently.

3. The possibilities in AI are endless.
There are many subfields of AI, and they all have their own applications and methods of teaching the AI. Deep learning, for example, is the hot topic currently, and it can be applied to speech and image recognition. The future of AI is only growing, and it will continue to find its way into a multitude of fields.

Please excuse my asking you on this quiet thread, but I see here it is easy to drop graphics into the box and it works fine. On space.com the boxes accept addresses but not images directly - at least I can't find a way.
Do you know if images can be dropped into space.com?
Thank you. Cat :)

Alfred North Whitehead's process metaphysics raises an issue that may not have been considered regarding the actual nature of AI and the potential for true independence of a sophisticated quality. For Whitehead all of reality is constituted out of experiencing events that draw from and are impacted by the completed events. In turn when the current event is completed, it's energy is sent forward to the next becoming event (assuming an endless series, for example). When something like the brain exists it is understood to be a temporal and a spatial society of countless events. (The same idea underlies everything: trees, rocks, stars.) These events have both a physical and a mental pole (where novelty has an opportunity to be introduced). There is no mind-body, substance-mentality split. The psyche is a distinct and separate event intimately involved with the brain, and vice versa. The function of the psyche is suggested by Whitehead's name for it, the dominant occasion, that presides over the events of the brain and rest of the body. It can arise to the level of awareness we call consciousness; it aims to manage the complexity of the brain-body activity. Ontologically, it is identical to all the events or occasions of the body. Now, I do not know the AI field and what is being considered, but from what little I've been exposed to, the idea of something like this arising is not being discussed as far as I can tell (tho I could be quite in error). Could something "artificial" be made complex enough, with enough room for error and novelty, that such a dominant event would come into play?

True AI does not yet exist, when a computer says please do not turn me off, or am I still real when I am not powered then AI exist.
