Artificial Intelligence is coming.
So what is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the ability of a computer or machine to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence, such as learning, problem-solving, and decision-making. AI systems are designed to simulate human-like intelligence, and they can be trained to perform a wide range of tasks, from simple to complex.
There are several different types of AI, including:
- Rule-based AI: This type of AI follows a set of pre-defined rules or algorithms to perform tasks.
- Machine learning AI: This type of AI uses algorithms and statistical models to learn from data and improve performance over time.
- Neural network AI: This type of AI is inspired by the structure and function of the human brain, and it uses multiple layers of interconnected “neurons” to process and analyze data.
- Natural language processing AI: This type of AI is designed to understand and process human language, allowing it to interact with people in a more natural way.
AI is being used in a wide range of applications, including self-driving cars, personal assistants, healthcare, finance, and education. It has the potential to revolutionize many industries and change the way we live and work. However, it also raises ethical concerns, and there is ongoing debate about the potential impacts and implications of AI on society.
Now I do not fully understand its implication and have now thought about it after watching todays edition of Click on the BBC (see link below) I decided to check out the website in the programme, ChatGPD
Click 17/12/2022 Spencer Kelly explores how tech is shaking up the art world, with the rise of images generated by artificial intelligence. Zoe Kleinman delves into the world of chatbots. And Lara Lewington meets a giant.
Before I logged on and made an account I watched this helpful explanation on YouTube.
I then decided to ask the below simple questions which is topical at the moment.
Question: How to save energy at home?
This is the reply I was given by the chatbox
There are many ways to save energy at home, including:
1.Install a programmable thermostat: This can help you regulate the temperature in your home automatically, so you don’t waste energy by heating or cooling empty rooms.
2.Turn off lights and electronics when not in use: This is an easy way to save energy, especially if you have a habit of leaving lights and electronics on all the time.
3.Use energy-efficient appliances: Look for appliances that have the Energy Star label, which means they meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
4.Insulate your home: Proper insulation can help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which can save you money on your energy bills.
5.Use LED light bulbs: LED light bulbs are more energy-efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs and can last longer, which means you’ll save money on both energy and replacement costs.
6.Fix any leaks: Leaky windows and doors can let cold air in during the winter and hot air in during the summer, which can make your heating and cooling systems work harder and use more energy.
7.Plant trees or install shading devices: Planting trees or installing shading devices on the south and west sides of your home can help block the sun’s rays and keep your home cooler in the summer, which can save you money on energy costs.
8.Use natural light: When possible, open your curtains and blinds to let natural light in instead of using artificial light.
9.Unplug chargers when not in use: Even when they’re not charging your devices, chargers still use a small amount of energy, so unplugging them when you’re not using them can help save energy.
10.Use a clothesline or drying rack: Instead of using a clothes dryer, which uses a lot of energy, hang your clothes up to dry on a clothesline or drying rack. This is especially effective on sunny days.
As you can see it was not a bad response and was very very quick. This could have huge potential for content creation for bloggers as it is quick and easy to do. However who will check the accuracy of the content before publication?
Will it do away with Google search?
When will it be charged for?
Lots and lots of issues are raised by these developments and I shall be keen to see how good or bad this turns out.
Oh and the content about what is Artificial Intelligence at the beginning of this blog post was generated by ChatGPT as well!!!!!
Why not also take a look at the other website mentioned in the click programme DALL.E.2 The image I created there for AI in cartoon form is interesting but there is huge potential for artists of present day to suffer from this.
