How Artificial Intelligence (AI)works
Technology has taken over the world today. From smart phones to laptops, desktop computers to tablets, the number of ways we communicate and connect continues to expand. The future looks bright because technology is advancing at such a rapid pace — and the possibilities seem endless. There are several types of technology, from computer software and artificial intelligence (AI) to robotics…and much more.
What is AI?
Artificial Intelligence is a field that encompasses many areas within science and technology. It’s an area that focuses on understanding human behavior by using technology to help computers think as humans do. With the advancement in technology, there has been a lot of progress made in this particular area.
What role does AI play in our lives?
AI can be used for anything from creating new tools to finding patterns in data and making sense of things. For example, consider how Siri functions in your iPhone — it performs tasks based on what you ask it, even if it doesn’t understand exactly what you mean.
What is computer programming?
Computer programming is the act of writing instructions so that a computer can perform a task. To write these instructions, programmers use a language called code. A program is a series of instructions written in code. This is one way to create a software application or game. Most applications and games require some level of coding. So when talking about “writing programs” or “programming,” it means coding. You may have also heard people talk about computer hardware as well. Computer hardware is the physical parts of a computer: CPU, RAM, hard drives, etc. It’s everything inside a computer that makes it work.
How do I become a programmer?
There are many different ways to learn how to code. You could take a college course where they teach students the ins and outs of all kinds of languages and software development. Or, you might find free resources online or through local community colleges. Regardless of which path you choose, just remember that coding requires math principles, so you’ll need study skills along with hands-on experience.
