Artificial Intelligence for Beginners 

The field of Artificial Intelligence is evolving very rapidly & the advancements in this domain are quite fascinating. From merely being depicted in the science fiction back in the late ‘90s, the use of Artificial Intelligence powered smart applications and software solutions have become more prevalent in everyday life business process. Amid the growing demand for AI-driven applications in the industries across the verticals, it has now become a lucrative career option for people across all walks of life.

In this blog post, we will be giving you brief overview of basic aspects in Artificial Intelligence like what is AI, history of AI, types of AI, applications of AI, and more concepts about AI.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence is the ability of a machine or a computer system to exhibit smart human like abilities including perceiving, learning, reasoning and solving problems. Artificial Intelligence delivers machines with smart abilities like reasoning, speech, and vision that are so far limited to just humans.

Different Types of Artificial Intelligence:

Artificial Intelligence is classified into three different types namely Narrow Artificial Intelligence, General Artificial Intelligence and Strong Artificial Intelligence. 

  • General Artificial Intelligence

General Artificial Intelligence is the form of AI where machines or computer systems will be performing intellectual tasks with an accuracy level similar to that of humans.  

  • Narrow Artificial Intelligence  

Narrow Artificial Intelligence is the form of AI where machines or computer systems will be performing a specific task with an accuracy level much better than a human. The present form AI which is in existence is Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI). 

  • Strong Artificial Intelligence 

This is an advanced form of AI where implying which machines or computer systems would become capable to outperform humans in any given task. 

Amid the rapid advancements that are happening in AI, it is being used by enterprises across the industry verticals. Enterprises that have successfully deployed AI as a part of their business process have achieved the much needed competitive edge. Experts are of the view that AI has the potential to generated more than 600 billions of dollars of value in retail which is much higher compared to any other analytical technology. 

Understanding the Types of Artificial Intelligence:

Artificial intelligence can be divided into two subfields:

  • Machine learning
  • Deep learning

Machine Learning:

Machine Learning is a subset of Artificial intelligence that that makes use of complex algorithms that enables machines to learn from their past examples and experiences.

Machine Learning algorithms are very crucial when it comes to analyzing large sets of Big Data to make future predictions.

Deep Learning

Deep learning is a subset of Machine Learning. Deep Learning works based on Neural Networks whose functioning is similar to the functioning of neurons in the human brain.

Smart Applications of Artificial Intelligence: 

  • Google’s AI-powered predictions (Google Maps)
  • Ride-sharing applications (Uber, Lyft)
  • AI Autopilot in Commercial Flights
  • Spam filters on Emails
  • Plagiarism checkers and tools
  • Facial Recognition
  • Search recommendations
  • Voice-to-text features
  • Smart personal assistants (Siri, Alexa)
  • Fraud protection and prevention


Simply put, Artificial Intelligence is an advanced area in computer science that enables machines to possess abilities similar to humans like analyzing, reasoning, and decision making. Artificial Intelligence simply replicates human intelligence into machines. Machines that are deployed with AI are capable of learning from their past experience & their system needs to be constantly fed with right information and also self-correction becomes critical.
