Any time one would like to present them selves as an industry expert, one reliable approach is always to paint a shining picture of future technology and what of us can anticipate from hopeful visions of things to come around. One potential that has long worried me is the current general perception of artificial intelligence technology. Artificial intelligence is a very broad field, and far from being isolated to computing it encompasses many other disciplines such as philosophy, neuroscience and psychology. It is important to note though, that rather than just seeking to understand intelligence, AI practitioners seek also to build or create it. The uses and applications of AI are many and varied, and although many think of humanoid robots when we discuss AI, you may be surprised to know that we already encounter applied AI in our day-to-day lives.
AI is full of big questions – how does an entity (either biological or mechanical) think? How does it understand or solve a problem? Can a machine truly be intelligent? What is intelligence? The answer to these questions may not be easy, but there is an answer staring us in the mirror so we know the quest to find out is achievable.

There are a few key concepts that are not often used in the general discussion of creating machines that think and act like us. Initially, the problem with artificial intelligence is that it is artificial. Trying to create machines that work like the human brain and its special creative properties has always seemed rubbish to me. We already have people to do all that. If we succeed in generating a system that is both equally able as the human brain to create and solve problems, such an achievement will even result in the same limitations. This would offer some indication of the worth that artificial intelligence has to several economies and society.

Well Paid Jobs and Important Roles

This level of relevance that may be attached to artificial intelligence studies invariably leads to well paid jobs in a number of influential industries. The tasks easily obtainable in the defence sector and government positions play a huge role in shaping our lives.

The same could be said for how we comprehend stuff with market analysts often holding an artificial intelligence qualification. In fact it is through a better understanding of how things work and come together that artificial intelligence has its roots. Whether this is through computational mechanisms or biological systems it is about improving our knowledge of how something works to improve performance.

This has made an artificial intelligence degree or Masters a challenging subject area that is sure to test anyone undertaking a course. However, as pointed out, the long-term benefits are evident.
