What is the definition of artificial intelligence?


Artificial intelligence, or AI, is a generic term representing a range of techniques that enable machines to mimic human intelligence.

When people think, they feel what is happening in their environment, understand what those inputs mean, make decisions based on them, and then act. Artificial intelligence devices are in the early stages of reproducing the same behavior.


What's the difference between artificial intelligence and machine learning?

Machine learning is a subset of AI that refers to the ability of a machine to think without external programming. Traditional devices are programmed with a set of rules about how to act, and then this takes the form of if-then-else statements. But machine learning allows devices to constantly think about how to act on the incoming data.


What is the Turing Test for Artificial Intelligence?

The Turing test is a way of testing a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behavior that is equivalent or indistinguishable from human behavior. Developed by computer scientist and mathematician Alan Turing in 1950, the test involves a human evaluator asking the same set of questions to another person and machine. If the evaluator cannot tell the difference between the subjects' answers, the machine passes the Turing test.


What is an AI assistant?

An Artificial Intelligence Assistant is a program that can respond to you, provide information, and perform tasks at your request. While these assistants are most often viewed in terms of smartphones and smart home speakers, they can exist in a variety of devices and will become ubiquitous in XR glasses, home appliances, connected cars, and more. With the 4th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine, we support use cases at power levels that work for mobile devices.


What is mobile AI?

Mobile AI is a subset of on-device AI, that is, AI that resides on the device itself, not in the cloud. Mobile AI refers to on-device AI in smartphones, in particular, with over 1.5 billion smartphones shipped annually, smartphones are the most ubiquitous mobile AI platform.

But beyond smartphones, artificial intelligence on the device improves the user experience on various types of devices. At Qualcomm Technologies, we help bring artificial intelligence to devices in virtual assistants, smart assistants, and IoT devices - from home cameras to home appliances.


What are the benefits of artificial intelligence?

AI can be used to easily and quickly perform tasks that people find trivial, such as sorting large amounts of data and pattern recognition. It also allows machines to be smarter in a way that makes them more intuitive, easier to use and can do more than ever before. This applies to our personal devices, larger industry technologies, and pretty much everything in between. For example, artificial intelligence allows the camera to not only take a picture or record sounds, but also know that it is taking a picture, or know what is being said.


What are some examples of artificial intelligence?

Using your voice to interact with your phone is artificial intelligence. And if you send a message to a friend about an appointment for dinner at 5 p.m. and your device understands this and adds it to your calendar, it will be done with the help of artificial intelligence too.

Also, thanks to AI, drones can fly on their own, cameras can distinguish objects, and cars can drive autonomously. Even beyond simply ensuring vehicle autonomy, our AI technologies are transforming the automotive industry - from manufacturing and predictive service to the many in-car AI uses such as personalization, in-car virtual assistants and driver behavior monitoring.


What are some examples of the use of artificial intelligence in business ?

Artificial intelligence improves business productivity. At a low level, it can summarize the document, alert you if you forget to download an email attachment, and recommend responses on email and other messaging platforms.

With its intelligence, AI is also helping companies and driving entire industries such as automotive, agriculture, and healthcare. New cars are already using artificial intelligence to maintain safe driving distances, and smart drones have revolutionized the growing and harvesting of crops, allowing farmers to survey their land with virtually no hindrance.

In addition, in e-commerce, AI is making online shopping increasingly smarter and easier through natural language processing for purchases and AI-powered product recommendations.


What are some examples of the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare?

AI is already extremely effective in diagnosing diseases, including several types of cancer. Recent data has shown that trained AI can in many cases identify tumors and other diseases better than trained doctors. It also enables wearable technology that can collect deeper health data that artificial intelligence on a device or human can use to monitor and better understand your health. Wearable platforms from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI) have been included in over 200 device types since 2014, providing tools to improve the health of both children and adults.

In addition, thanks to its translation abilities, AI can also help people (especially those in remote areas) communicate with doctors and professionals who are not nearby and who may not speak the same language.


What are the benefits of artificial intelligence?

Low latency, security focus, and AI's pure number processing capabilities are some of its biggest benefits. For the end user, this is designed to provide automation and intelligence that make tasks easier and less error-prone - all while eliminating repetitive tasks. And for our devices, artificial intelligence can make them more energy efficient and allow us to interact with them in more convenient ways, for example, using voice control.
