Artificial Intelligence is a part of Computer science that helps to design intelligent machines which work like humans. Artificial Intelligence mimics human intelligence and is trained on how to react to certain actions?
Here are some pros and cons of Artificial Intelligence:
Reduce Errors: To make errors is human nature, whereas machines take decision based on historical data. Hence, the chances of errors made by the machines are reduced. Solving complex data is possible for machines within the shortest time frame. Many bigger organizations take help of Artificial Intelligence machines in solving complex decision making. This helps the businesses to reduce the time taken for decision making as well as take an accurate decision. Artificial intelligence machines are trained to give profitable decisions within the shortest time frame.
No easy wear and Tear: Unlike humans, machines do not wear and tear quickly. Artificial intelligence machines are using in fuel exploring and mining process. Due to the programming of artificial intelligence machines, they can perform tedious tasks that involve heavy workload, with ease.
Makes Daily Chores Easy: GPS systems, Voice assistants like Siri, etc., makes the daily task very easy for us. One of the basic features used every day in smartphones is ‘auto correct’. The auto correct feature option understands what the user wants to type and present the sentence in the best possible way. Have you noticed that whenever you post a picture on Facebook, it automatically detects the face of the person and tags him/her?
Most of the financial institutions have employed Artificial intelligence machines in their day to day activities so that it helps in managing and organizing the data effectively.
Ration Decision Making: Bigger organizations have artificial intelligence machines that interact with the users, understand their needs, and serve the requirements. When humans involve in decision making, emotions come into play. Whereas, if the robots and other artificial machines take decisions, they do not have any distractions in decision making. Therefore, the robots are highly efficient in their work compared to human resources.
Repetitive Jobs: Doing repetitive jobs can be annoying, as well as a waste of time. Such repetitive tasks can be done with the help of artificial intelligence. Machines can perform such repetitive tasks faster and also do multi-functioning at the same time. However, humans cannot match the speed of machines in carrying out such repetitive tasks.
Medical Application: There is a wide scope for machines in the medical field. Doctors diagnose patients and their health risks, with the help of AI machines. There are many applications available for the machines to understand the symptoms and side effects of certain disease and medicines, respectively. This helps in educating the machines regarding medical terms and treatment. Artificial surgery simulators help in monitoring and detecting neurological disorders and stimulate the functions of the brain. Artificial intelligence machines also play a crucial role in radio surgeries. Radiosurgery is used for treating tumors and operating without damaging the tissues around the tumor.
Tireless and no breaks Required: Unlike humans, machines do not require any break to operate. They can perform any task without getting bored and distracted for long hours. This is one of the major benefits of deploying machines in the business.
Informed Decision Making: As mentioned earlier, absence of emotions in machines makes their decision making more efficient. The best example of machine decision making is its use in the medical field. Deploying AI machines in the hospitals have reduced the false diagnosis and improved the efficiency of treatments.
Cons of Artificial Intelligence
Expensive: Deploying Artificial Intelligence in business is very expensive. The repair and maintenance cost of AI machines is also very expensive. It also needs frequent up gradation with the changing environment.
No Human Replication: Machines cannot replicate humans, no matter how smart they are. As they do not have any emotions, machines cannot differentiate between what is ethical and what is unethical. If the machines are provided with a task which is not familiar to them, they might break down or take incorrect decisions.
No Improvement with Experience: AI machines cannot perform out of the box unless they are given a new command to perform the function. Machines can store lot of data, but it cannot be used in the same way as human intelligence.
No creativity: As mentioned above, machines cannot think out of the box. They cannot perform a new task unless a new command is given to them. Humans can generate ideas out of the box and can come up with innovative ways to solve a problem. No matter how fast machines can complete a task, still, they cannot match the human brain.
AI and robotics will surely grow to new horizons. They can be designed to perform a specific action with ease. However, they cannot match human intelligence.
