Artificial Intelligence in Information Technology: The coolest thing to happen in the realm of information technology is the rise of artificial intelligence (AI).
The way AI simulates human intelligence, and processes tasks that are forte of the humans, such as natural language processing (NLP), speech recognition, and more, seem straight out of science fiction!
Undoubtedly, AI transforms and makes an immense difference to any industry in which it's implemented. That stands true even for information technology.
Artificial Intelligence Impact on Information Technology
The advent of AI, and its subsequent transformations, has seen it become an integral part of and leave an indelible impact on information technology.
Why is it important?
Its answer lies in features, smart, stunning features, AI brings to the field of information technology - features that have been at the forefront of the transformation of digital commerce.
To begin with, AI has infused into machines, software, algorithms, three powerful cognitive skills, including learning, reasoning, and self-correction.
It's this that makes artificial intelligence the most stunning achievement and remarkable demonstration of computing prowess.
Learning. AI is capable to acquire and process data on its own. It takes a bulk of unintelligible data, processes it to produce intelligible insights, which are actionable. Today AI is intelligent enough that it could perform a task with accuracy outmatching the step-by-step instructions fed to it concerning that task.
Reasoning. AI's reasoning capability is, of course, not to the extent humans have, but is still plausible enough. Yet it can ram through algorithms and choose the right fit to perform a task while discarding others.
Self-Correction. AI has the power to do self-assessment and self-correct. To its capability to get rid of erroneous programs, and seeing to it what's and what isn't working, is quite a feat. This potential to continuously evolve and get better with time makes AI technological imperative and an indispensable segment of any field, let alone information technology.
One of the Best Business Books of 2020: 'Competing in the Age of AI'
*Praise for, along with the gist of the above book in Forbes:
This book is a comprehensive guide to how artificial intelligence is built and can be easily understood by non-technical professionals. As AI and big data become ever more central to business success, this book is essential reading.
How's Artificial Intelligence Transforming Information Technology?
Every time one speaks of the future of technology, Artificial Intelligence just pops up. Traditional computing is all over now, done and dusted, if I may say so! AI has taken it over!
In every sense, the impact of AI on industries, and how they perform, has been phenomenal, and transformational in its true sense. It's evident from the role of artificial intelligence in information technology.
Be it healthcare, finance, education, media, or commerce - you name it - you will see the indelible mark of AI on each of these industries touched by it, from the way research is done to the very process of manufacturing.
*Watch this video below to see how artificial intelligence transforms Healthcare:
Right from the beginning, the aim set for AI was to emulate the human brain and how it works. And artificial intelligence seems to be on course to the realisation of its dream!
Algorithms, Machine Learning, Big Data, it all goes into the making of intelligent systems exhibiting remarkable problem-solving capabilities.
*Watch this video below to learn more about Machine Learning - What is Machine Learning:
- Building Secure Systems - Digital interactions have led to the generation of a large amount of customer data, which needs security. Artificial Intelligence is securing systems through its extensive use of highly layered algorithms.
- Improved Productivity - In writing codes as well, AI proves helpful, and helps eliminate software bugs. It provides suggestions as far as the security of code is concerned, increases code efficiency and productivity of programs and systems running it.
- Automating Processes - All the recurring and repetitive manual tasks can be automated by deploying artificial intelligence. Its expedient of automation renders human intervention irrelevant, as it works just fine without it. Automation saves plenty of work hours, frees workforce, and saves money, which can be better used to scale your business.
We have seen that efficiency and productivity are the two standout features of AI. Artificial Intelligence is capable of undertaking any task, no matter its scale, and performs it with unmatched efficiency.
What's remarkable from the business viewpoint is that AI relieves human workers of tedious jobs. And the result is, workers, get plenty of time to perform rather high-value tasks.
