What is Artificial Intelligence ?

Just over ten years ago, the IBM supercomputer program Deep Blue beat world chess champion Garry Kasparov—the greatest chess mind alive. That moment marked a turning point in the relationship between man and machine.

Later in 2011 IBM Watson supercomputer defeated Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings in US TV show Jeopardy.  

Recently Google’s AlphaGo beat the 2500 year old Chinese game Go.

Machines have topped the best humans at most games, including Chess, Scrabble, Othello, and even Jeopardy!! But the future of artificial intelligence (AI) is about way more than games is used in Digital Transformation.

Artificial Intelligence is the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior

There’s definite signs that machines with artificial intelligence will soon be taking over skilled manual work that now is typically handled by humans.

Amazon awarded $20,000 to the creators of a robot that uses Artificial Intelligence to fill orders most like a human, but it’s not going to replace employees yet.

Online services like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, already use deep learning to identify images, recognize spoken words, and understand natural language and translate in other.

Today these biggies are making their machine learning - deep learning software freely available to people.

Last year Google open sourced its artificial intelligence engine TensorFlow, which the company uses for many of its own applications, including voice recognition in Android and even its flagship search engine.

Facebook open sourced designs for custom hardware, designed to run the latest AI algorithms. 

China’s largest search engine, Baidu, open sourced its the artificial intelligence training software.

Microsoft’s Brain is now available for anyone to use in their apps., The company has open sourced the artificial intelligence framework it uses to power speech recognition in its Cortana digital assistant and Skype.

BMW, Tesla, Google are using AI for self-driving cars. Apple is also getting into this so the idea of buying a car from the same company that made your iPod doesn't begin to seem all that far-fetched.

Many experts in the field of artificial intelligence say that it will eventually evolve far beyond all human physical and intellectual capacities.

Recently Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, raised a concern about how AI can be threat to humanity. Even Professor Stephen Hawking warned that AI could spell the end of human race. 

But unlike Terminator movie series with Skynet, we hope that these AI champions will be used to solve real world tough problems like climate modeling to disease analysis and betterment of humanity.


  1. We provide cutting edge solutions in the fields of Robotics and Automation along with Electronics and Communication for both business and domestic purposes. To experience our recent development(s) in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence please visit our site from the links given above.

  2. Good Summary. I read Nick Bostrom's superintelligence recently. He spells out a series of threats that all boil down to poorly constructed cost functions that result in unintended consequences.

  3. what we are doing by imitating human nature is copying the programming done by nature in all of the natural programming is less faulty in animals no problem creeps in natural routine of universe but as we move on to intelligent species with complex programming like human the problem grows bigger with less strict coding required to learn more and evolve ,the risk of violation of nature increases and this is happenning every day as on the name of developement of science we are destroying the nature our programming itself is not working in proper ways of nature what will happen to artificial intelligence created by we programmed people.what required is first to free ourselves from our own operating system called human behaviour ,the procedure is given in Hindu religion called spiritualism,then analyse our own program and then start the work of AI.

  4. Now we are all living in a digital era.Everything is under the control of machines.I have heard the term artificial intelligence many times. But i didn't understand the what actually it means.I am working at best essay writing services, helping students for writing easily. I am interested in knowing latest technologies. Your blog is very interesting and artificial intelligence is explained in a simple manner. Thank you for your blog.
