Humanity has progressed quite far forward when it comes to inventions, innovations, and technology. Today, the world is considered to be in the information age. Some would even argue that we are passed that and are now in the information management age. What is certain is that the age we are now is focused on information; accessing and dispersing it. Knowledge is power so to speak, so he, who holds the most information, holds the power.
One way to be ahead of the information game is to create intelligence. Technology nowadays is also focused on recreating and improving the brain. Memory, cognition, and problem solving are some of the functions of the brain that people are trying to recreate and improve. This is called artificial intelligence. The difference between AI and normal automation and algorithms is its ability to absorb new data and not just react to it but also adapt and learn from it.

Hardware and Software
Using supercomputers and complex algorithms, people have slowly created programs that can learn, think, and solve better than humans. There have been a lot of milestones for artificial intelligence wherein these programs have become supreme over the human brain in many aspects including games, problem-solving, and even piloting a jet fighter. Just recently, Google announced that they have reached quantum supremacy by solving a problem in a few minutes that a supercomputer would take 10 years.
Artificial intelligence or AI for short is, however, not just used in solving complex problems. They are used in almost all industries and fields of study. It is used, of course, in robotics where these programs control actions of robots to mimic human actions.
A lot of AI is also used in customer service over the phone and chatting services wherein artificial intelligence will talk to callers and help solve their problems while conversing with them like a human being. It is far from perfect, but it works. AI is also used in chatting with people online for queries, customer service, and even for pleasure. A lot of companies like AI healthcare company Diagnoss use this.
Several AI is used in gathering data and processing it. Because of the global world today and the desire for more output, AIs are being used in almost all workplaces to be able to be competitive and to become more efficient by producing more using fewer resources.
As AI is superior to the human brain, it is expected that they do not make mistakes in what they are designed to do. They also get the work done faster while solving problems without prejudice.
Government and Military
AI is also heavily used by governments and the military. In ensuring national security and sometimes in expanding interests, the government can harness the powers of artificial intelligence and use it to their advantage.
A lot of AI is used in screening calls, texts, and chats to find possible threats. It is even used to catch pedophiles. These programs are also used to process many images for facial and print recognition of billions of people around the world. Knowledge is power and Artificial Intelligence is the way to gain it.

In the medical field, this technology is also used and has improved medical capabilities. In healthcare, these programs are used to make rational decisions based on data. Sometimes, a physician’s mind can be clouded due to the many factors that can cause a certain effect. Artificial intelligence brings in a fresh untainted outlook that is not clouded by any prejudice or external factor. It gives output based only on the data that it is fed. These give physicians a better perspective allowing them to make better decisions for complex problems.
AI is also used in medical billing and coding. A lot of losses in the healthcare department are caused by errors in encoding and billing. Using Artificial Intelligence programs can remedy this and reduce losses significantly.
There are a lot of uses for this technology. Some fear that the development of AI will lead to developing a singularity that people fear will cause the end of the world. In some dystopian stories, singularities cause humans to become enslaved by computers. However, experts in this field believe this not to be so even if a singularity is to be developed in the near future.
