In the first half of the 20th century, science fiction introduced the world to the concept of artificial intelligence. The heartless tin man in the Wizard of Oz, originally shot as a silent film in 1910, encountered the world's first artificial intelligence character. In the 1950s, there was a group of scientists, mathematicians and philosophers with a culturally absorbed concept of artificial intelligence (or AI) in their minds. The question was: "Can machines think?" British polymers Alan Turing discovered the mathematical probability of artificial intelligence. According to Turing, while people used the available information and reasons to solve problems and make decisions, why machines could not do the same. Artificial intelligence studies developed from 1957 to 1974. Computers were able to store more information and became faster, cheaper and more accessible.
Machine learning algorithms also developed, and people knew better what algorithm to apply to their problems. In the 1990s and 2000s, important goals of artificial intelligence were achieved. In 1997, world chess champion and grandmaster Gary Kasparov was defeated by IBM's chess-playing program Deep Blue. This was the first AI event to prevail against people with a decision-making mechanism. When we come to today, there has been no extreme progress in coding artificial intelligence compared to thirty years ago, but; computer memory, storage capacity has been significantly expanded and speed capacity has increased significantly, which has led to the creation of artificial intelligence today.
The digital world is growing and developing day by day. Artificial intelligence, which human beings faced in a science fiction movie about 100 years ago, is now part of our daily lives, they have entered our lives. Our pocket telofones, where we spend at least two hours a day, driverless cars, smart buildings, auxiliary robots in airports and restaurants, and more. In the rest of our article, we will examine some of the most advanced artificial intelligence products for you.
1. Google AlphaGo
Playing the Go game developed by DeepMind and the company's biggest success, AlphaGo defeated Kı Cie, the best Go player in the world. The reason why this event is different from artificial intelligence that has plagued chess masters in the past is because Go is a much more complex game. So victory was a historic moment in the world of artificial intelligence. There is a very informative and entertaining Netflix documentary about the match for those who want to watch.
2. Smart cars and drones
The most obvious evidence of the development of artificial intelligence technology can be seen in products made by smart car and drone manufacturers. A few years ago, it was a dream to drive a fully automatic car, but now companies like Tesla have come so far that they now have a semi-automatic vehicle fleet.
Tesla cars are one of the most important examples of how artificial intelligence affects our daily life. Did you know that all Tesla cars are connected and that everything your car learns is shared with Tesla's other cars? This means that your car can record a sudden corner on your left as you go on your way and know how to maneuver this turn after all Tesla cars have been updated. Apart from that, these smart cars have the ability to predict and self-driving features.
Companies such as Amazon and Walmart are investing heavily in drone delivery programs, and this method will become common worldwide sooner than we expected. Dominos restaurant chain in New Zealand delivers its orders to its customers by drone.
Smart drones are also used by military forces in multiple areas.
3. Smart Phones
If we make a guess; We can say that most of you have read this article on your smartphone. Smartphones are undoubtedly the most indispensable technology product we have today. If you are a smartphone user, you interact with artificial intelligence whether you are aware or not. For example, when using a smart assistant, we more or less know that these assistants, whether Google Assistant, Alexa, Siri or Bixby, are based on artificial intelligence. However, when using a feature such as the portrait mode effect when taking pictures, we never think that artificial intelligence can be behind this feature. If you have never thought of how Google Pixel 2 can shoot such beautiful portraits with a single lens, let us answer; With artificial intelligence… Artificial intelligence perceives the environment you are in and adjusts the lights and effects suitable for the environment accordingly,
We all know Apple's personal assistant in iOS 12, Siri. A voice-activated computer that we interact with on a daily basis. It helps us find information, gives directions, add events to our calendars, and helps us send messages. Siri is a fake smart digital personal assistant. You can talk to him and answer your questions like a friend. This smart assistant uses machine learning technology to better anticipate and understand our questions and demands. With the suggestions he made, the characteristics of artificial intelligence have also become able to affect human decisions. Apart from these, most of our smart phones can recognize us with fingerprints, face and retina.
Intelligent robots slowly began to enter our lives. Especially in business life, many companies started using robots instead of people, and this raises concerns that many people will have employment problems in the future. For example, Amazon employs smart robotic arms to prepare online orders. Smart arms take the right product and pack it. People come into play only at the shipping side.
Today, robots have entered the art world. The portrait made by an artificial intelligence in New York in 2018 was sold by auction.
While some people see robots as a threat to the future and worry about developments, some argue that robots are not as dangerous and necessary for human life.
