Artificial Intelligence (ChatGPT, Google Bard) – everything you need to know

The photo above is of a robot called Kismet. Made in the 90s, it’s made to imitate the feelings of a person by recreating the human face and features. This is one of the first advancements in the area of artificial intelligence.

I. What is AI (Artificial Intelligence)?

AI (or A.I.) is an abbreviation of “Artificial Intelligence”. Artificial intelligence will be referred to by its abbreviated form in this post.

When taken in mind, the simple meaning of the word is for a machine (or others) to do certain processes naturally, imitating how humans do those same processes. It is made to be a machine-led co-humane answering algorithm. Here is a quote from the beginning of the post by TechTarget:

Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. Specific applications of AI include expert systems, natural language processing, speech recognition and machine vision.

What can be led as a conclusion from this quote is that AI is a simulation of human thinking. Human thinking in itself contains a lot of aspects like speech, vision, audio (hearing), movement, instincts, and many more. These are main human doings, which people are trying to get machines and computers to simulate naturally. In a fictional sense, we are trying to make machines like us.

I.a. What types of end-user artificial intelligence services are available?

Generally, there can be near infinite types of simulated human intelligence, but as of a current classification mentioned by Bernard Marr – a certified business influencer and contributor: there are four types. Read the quote from the businessman on his LinkedIn:

According to the current system of classification, there are four primary AI types: reactive, limited memory, theory of mind, and self-aware.

Reactive artificial intelligence is the most basic but widespread type of AI. It is programmed in a way that it can return an answer on only recorded queries. It cannot actively learn from new sources, as it is usually implemented in search engines such as popular streaming services, which only have a limited database (whatever there is on the actual platform and nothing outside it).

When you go to the search bar of a service like Netflix and you have in mind to watch Stranger Things, you type the name in and the series appears on the results page. Additionally, developers may add spelling mistake recognition, so even if you were to type “Stranget Things”, you could still see the series on the result page.

Limited artificial intelligence is a different, yet still common type of AI. It observes previous queries and reads from preprogrammed ones.
