The term artificial intelligence was first coined by John McCarthy in 1956 when he held the first academic conference on the subject. I might be wrong on this but talking from my own reading and observations the idea of AI has always been there with us, but we got to know and understand it a little late as the technology implementations were made few years back.
How AI is affecting our lives ?
When AI perform a repetitive or dangerous tasks, it relaxes up the human efforts to do the same work and the human gets equipped for tasks that involve creativity and empathy among others. AI has been doing lot of major tasks for example:
Proactive healthcare management.
Automated financial investing.
Virtual travel booking agent.
Social media monitoring.
Inter-team chat tool.
We have been practicing and researching the AI in all the creative ways, and the best thing it helps us in gathering data which means lot of business. As data is a very important source of coustomers. Now days AI is used in representing our own expressions, through emoticons on the chat and calling applications which adds a little bit fun in life.
Talking more in concrete ways in which AI can be used are automated chat systems for customer support, planning and research processes and most importantly in the robotics sector.
AI is essentially an encompassing concept that holds within its mandate multiple, often overlapping disciplines. These draw upon knowledge and processes from statistics, mathematics, computer science and other specialized expertise to create models, software programs and tools.
