Artificial Intelligence (AI) the trending technology of 2020
Today machines are programmed to simulate the human intelligence in machines to think like humans . From virtual assistant to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI) is progressing each and every day. While science fiction movies mostly portrays AI as robots with human-like characteristics. But in reality Artificial Intelligence (AI) can encompass anything from Google’s search algorithms , personal assistant to autonomous weapons.
Most of the android phone user today use AI services in one form or another including navigation, streaming services etc. AI is used to schedule trains and flights, assess business evaluation and risk predict maintenance and improvement, improve energy efficiency, among many other money-saving tasks.
Types of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
We can categorize Artificial Intelligence (AI) into three types depend on the level of intelligence embedded into a machine.
1.Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI)
It is a type of intelligence which is prominent to perform a single task with smartness. In other words, this type of intelligence learns about a single task which it has to perform efficiently using intelligence. In this type of AI, the machine does not possess any thinking ability, it just performs a pre-defined tast and functions.
For e.g. Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa, Self-driving cars, Alpha-Go , personal use robots.
2. Artificial General Intelligence ( AGI )
It is known as Strong AI, AGI is the stage in the evolution of Artificial Intelligence where machines can think and will be able to make decisions just like humans. In present there are no existence of Strong AI, because human brain is the model for creating General Intelligence and we don’t have sufficient knowledge of functionality of the human brain.
3. Artificial Super Intelligence
ASI is the stage of AI where the intelligence of machines will surpass human beings. It is currently a hypothetical situation as depicted in movies such as Avengers: Age of Ultron and science fiction comics and books, where machines have taken over the human.

In this type of AI , machines will be able to perform extraordinary well at things such as arts, decision making , research and developement (r&d).
Some examples of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Siri is one of the most popular personal assistant offered by Apple iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, macOS, and tvOS operating systems . The voice assistant interacts with the user on a daily routine and also assists users to find information, get directions, send messages, make voice calls, open applications and add events to the calendar.
2. Google Assistant
Google Assistant is an artificial intelligence powered virtual assistant and one of the most popular developed by Google. Users can interact with the Google Assistant through natural voice. Google Assistant can search the Internet, schedule events and alarms, adjust hardware settings on the user’s device, and show information from the user’s Google account. It is available on mobile and smart home devices.
Netflix is a widely popular content-on-demand service that uses predictive technology that offer recommended content on the basis of consumers’ reaction, interests, choices. The technology examines the viewer and their interest to recommend movies based on their previous liking and reactions.
Boxever is a company that heavily depends on machine learning to enhance the customer’s experience in the travel industry and delivers the experiences that can please the customers.
The major social media networks is partner of the development of artificial intelligence. The social network uses AI to personalize the ads, so it has some measure of relevancy for its ad display . Facebook uses image recognition AI technology to identify the faces in a group photo, so it can invite members to tag.
Today automobiles are also shifting towards Artificial Intelligence and Tesla cars is the example as Tesla cars use AI for features like self-driving, predictive capabilities.
