What is artificial intelligence?
In simple terms, artificial intelligence (AI) is a set of theories and techniques to develop complex computer programs that can mimic human thinking and behaviour. AI applications can automate certain tasks, make faster and accurate predictions and support informed decision-making.
Nowadays, AI is often used as synonym of any application that performs complex tasks that previously required human intervention. However, it is important to be familiar with other AI-related terms to understand its dimension.
CRIM’s experts know, understand and master a wide range of AI techniques and methods. Therefore, they are able to choose the best options to meet your needs based on your reality.
Understanding the nuances
Artificial intelligence refers to machines that mimic human intelligence to perform tasks. Such tasks include planning, language interpretation, object and sound recognition, learning, and problem solving, among others. Probably the best example of artificial intelligence is the Turing test.
Machine learning is an AI method aimed at developing algorithms based on training a model to perform a task without explicit programming. Training involves the absorption of a large volume of data by the algorithm, which will gradually adjust and improve the model accordingly.
Deep learning is a subset of machine learning. This recent technique was inspired by the human brain and attempts to mimic human perceptual and logical reasoning mechanisms.
