Hype Hop Radio - What is AI?

Welcome to Hype Hop radio. This is your Tech Minute. I am Barbara Bickham. If you go to my website, www.barbarabickham.com and join our discord group so that any questions that you ask about Advanced Tech can be answered on a future tech minute.

Today we talk about artificial intelligence. What is AI? It's the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior.

There are many, many aspects of a AI. One is computer vision. How do you recognize objects.

Speech recognition and synthesis. How do you turn sounds into words and vice versa.

Natural language processing, otherwise known as NLP. How do you extract meaning from language.

Knowledge representation. How do you sort information in a practical way.

Reasoning. How do you combine pieces of information to reach conclusions and planning? How do you schedule a sequence of actions to fulfill a goal and make sure they're executed well?

These are all areas of artificial intelligence.

Many of you may have heard of machine learning. There are many aspects of machine learning. There's unsupervised learning, they're supervised learning and there's reinforcement learning.

An example of unsupervised learning might be something that you do in marketing all the time. Customer segmentation.

An example of supervised learning is weather forecasting.

An example of reinforced learning is the game AI that you're playing or maybe real time decisions.

These are all aspects of machine learning, which is a subset of artificial intelligence. So I want to thank you for our short AI tutorial today. This is Hype Hop radio and you're listening to the Tech Minute. Thank you so much for listening today.
