Why Artificial Intelligence (AI)?
When you give a machine enough processors and data, it can perform at greater accuracy and handle large, complex calculations at very high speeds.
If a machine can perform better than humans, we can use it to our advantage. We can teach a machine to calculate and use sophisticated models to give us better information.
The truth is that we are at a NEW BREAKTHROUGH in using machines to do work and learn.
AI models (i.e. deep learning) have systematically exceeded human accuracy in a variety of domains; these domains range from the cognitive like Chess, Go, Poker to the audio-visual like speech recognition, translation, image classification, etc.
