About Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of a machine to simulate human intelligence. AI systems can learn from data, identify patterns, and make decisions without being explicitly programmed. AI is used in a wide range of applications, including:

Potential careers for graduates of the Information Technology program include and are not restricted to:
  • Self-driving cars
  • Medical diagnosis
  • Fraud detection
  • Product recommendation
  • Natural language processing
  • Machine translation
  • Computer vision

AI is still in its early stages of development, but it has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our lives. For example, AI could help us to develop new cures for diseases, create more efficient transportation systems, and automate many tasks that are currently performed by humans.

Key components of AI consist of:
  • Machine learning: Machine learning is a type of AI that allows systems to learn from data without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning systems can be used to identify patterns in data, make predictions, and classify data.
  • Deep learning: Deep learning is a type of machine learning that uses artificial neural networks. Neural networks are inspired by the structure and function of the human brain. Deep learning systems can be used to solve complex problems, such as image recognition and natural language processing.
  • Natural language processing: Natural language processing (NLP) is a field of computer science that deals with the interaction between computers and human language. NLP systems can be used to understand and generate human language. NLP is used in a variety of applications, such as machine translation, chatbots, and voice assistants.
