What is AI? What is machine learning and how does it work? You’ve probably heard the buzz. The age of artificial intelligence has arrived. But that doesn’t mean it's easy to wrap your mind around. For the full story on the rise of artificial intelligence, check out The Robot Revolution: hubs.ly/H0630650
Let’s break down the basics of artificial intelligence, bots, and machine learning. Besides, there's nothing that will impact marketing more in the next five to ten years than artificial intelligence. Learn what the coming revolution means for your day-to-day work, your business, and ultimately, your customers.
Every day, a large portion of the population is at the mercy of a rising technology, yet few actually understand what it is.
Artificial intelligence. You know, HAL 9000 and Marvin the Paranoid Android?
Thanks to books and movies, each generation has formed its own fantasy of a world ruled -- or at least served -- by robots. We’ve been conditioned to expect flying cars that steer clear of traffic and robotic maids whipping up our weekday dinner.
But if the age of AI is here, why don’t our lives look more like the Jetsons?
Well, for starters, that’s a cartoon. And really, if you’ve ever browsed Netflix movie suggestions or told Alexa to order a pizza, you’re probably interacting with artificial intelligence more than you realize.
And that’s kind of the point. AI is designed so you don’t realize there’s a computer calling the shots. But that also makes understanding what AI is -- and what it’s not -- a little complicated.
In basic terms, AI is a broad area of computer science that makes machines seem like they have human intelligence.
So it’s not only programming a computer to drive a car by obeying traffic signals, but it’s when that program also learns to exhibit signs of human-like road rage.
As intimidating as it may seem, this technology isn’t new. Actually, for the past half-a-century, it’s been an idea ahead of its time.
The term “artificial intelligence” was first coined back in 1956 by Dartmouth professor John McCarthy. He called together a group of computer scientists and mathematicians to see if machines could learn like a young child does, using trial and error to develop formal reasoning. The project proposal says they’ll figure out how to make machines “use language, form abstractions and concepts, solve kinds of problems now reserved for humans, and improve themselves.”
That was more than 60 years ago.
Since then, AI has remained for the most part in university classrooms and super secret labs … But that’s changing.
Like all exponential curves, it’s hard to tell when a line that’s slowly ticking upwards is going to skyrocket.
But during the past few years, a couple of factors have led to AI becoming the next “big” thing: First, huge amounts of data are being created every minute. In fact, 90% of the world’s data has been generated in the past two years. And now thanks to advances in processing speeds, computers can actually make sense of all this information more quickly. Because of this, tech giants and venture capitalists have bought into AI and are infusing the market with cash and new applications.
Very soon, AI will become a little less artificial, and a lot more intelligent.
Now the question is: Should you brace yourself for yet another Terminator movie, live on your city streets?
Not exactly. In fact, stop thinking of robots. When it comes to AI, a robot is nothing more than the shell concealing what’s actually used to power the technology.
That means AI can manifest itself in many different ways. Let’s break down the options…
First, you have your bots. They’re text-based and incredibly powerful, but they have limitations.
Ask a weather bot for the forecast, and it will tell you it’s partly cloudy with a high of 57. But ask that same bot what time it is in Tokyo, and it’ll get a little confused. That’s because the bot’s creator only programmed it to give you the weather by pulling from a specific data source.
Natural language processing makes these bots a bit more sophisticated. When you ask Siri or Cortana where the closest gas station is, it’s really just translating your voice into text, feeding it to a search engine, and reading the answer back in human syntax. So in other words, you don’t have to speak in code.

Machine Learning is a subset of Artificial Intelligence. Title is not accurate.

Sorry the last part of your video is far from accurate. That is short-term. In the long-term human jobs will be indefinitely be replaced with Narrow AI. We would need a new economical structure. If we’re speaking about general AI, yeah this kind of AI is an existential threat to the human species and is no laughing matter. The first digitally conscious being plugged into the internet would have all the knowledge of the human race and arms and legs that span the globe and even space. It would also have access to all manners of weapons of mass destruction and access to all machinery linked to the internet. Even pulling the plug would not be enough because it could copy itself billions of times into billions if not trillions of computers.

Ironic that she says we don't have to worry about machines taking over the world but then spends the last two minutes explaining how machines use algorithms to learn new processes and improve their logic and thinking. What do you think will happen in 10 years?

It's my job to know all about this and she's absolutely correct but at the end of the day when the robots will take your job off you what the hell are you going to do that's the big master question of the future

this is fucking brilliant . theres so many comments about robots taking over the world. open your mind. take this concept into an eCommerce platform and google analytics seems the infant amongst vast potential. robots arent going to take over the world any time soon. but you a fool to think they havent arrived.

If you want to scare people from understanding, this is the video to watch!. Little can a person who is afraid of 'robots taking over' trust Ai and all the immense benefits it brings. In simple put, the Computers can give solutions to problems based on history of data learned and programmed to do. Not by themselves.

I'm not a fan of the language used to describe AI and Machine Learning. There is no actual consciousness or intelligence behind it, the algorithms don't get "smarter". An AI algorithm used to, say, identify sheep on pictures might run through millions of examples of sheep pictures and still classify a picture of a bus stop as a "sheep" because a certain collection of pixels on the picture of the bus stop looks like a certain collection of pixels found on several of the sheep-pictures. The algorithm will never consciously know what a sheep or bus stop is. Heck, its hard to avoid such personifications, even among professionals. I'd just like for everyone to stay conscious of the fact and remember that the programmers and Data Scientists behind the algorithms have a bigger impact on the results than what most people believe.

Good for supper beginers....."be humen" is kind of very stubborn and unrealistic statement since almost everybody sees how fast narrow AI ,infant AGI(alphago zero) are evolving.... fully autonomous AGI seems very close and then singularity(endless speedy replication of intelligence which resembels almost to god.....) so i would rather say" be supper humen" by merging with AI before it leaves you zillions of miles behind......

AI means Abode Illustrator. Am I right?
how does a computer analyze the sound waves of someone's voice & understand that each particular sequence of waves is a "word". Is there data that exists showing the waves produced by the word 'purple', for example, can only contain a maximum of x values in a range y? Is there some kind of mathematical relationship between the human tonal ranges and the possibilities of words that can be said, that's fed into the computer? Or is it more simple than that? im confused.

Welcome to Skynet.
Hi i am Korean. I am very interested about your video. It's very useful. I don't about AI well. But your video make me to understand the standard intellegence about AI. So i want to share with my friends who want to know about AI. So i want to make subtitle in Korean. So can you make the settle to comment the subtitle for me and my friends ..? I am waiting your answer :)
