What is AI and its Applications

What is AI?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the ability of a machine to display human-like capabilities such as reasoning, learning, planning and creativity.

AI enables technical systems to perceive their environment, deal with what they perceive, solve problems and act to achieve a specific goal. 

The computer receives data - already prepared or gathered through its own sensors such as a camera - processes it and responds.

What can AI do?

· AI can perceive and recognize elements in images and videos such as faces, objects, animals, and scenes. This enables AI to perform tasks such as facial recognition, security surveillance, medical diagnosis, and autonomous driving.

As technology advances and more data becomes available, artificial intelligence will continue to develop and expand its capabilities.


Achieving the functions and applications of AI depends on different types of AI models. The choice of an appropriate AI model depends on the nature of the problem and the available data.
