AI System and Tools: An Introduction
Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are computer programs designed to mimic human cognitive functions such as learning and problem- solving. These systems can analyse and process large amounts of data quickly and make decisions based on that data, potentially allowing them to complete tasks more efficiently than humans. There are many potential benefits to using AI systems. For example, they can be used to automate tasks that are repetitive or dangerous, freeing up human workers to focus on more complex tasks. AI systems can also be designed to make decisions based on data and algorithms, which may be less prone to bias or error than. All in all, AI systems have the potential to greatly enhance our lives and increase efficiency in a variety of fields. Further extraction of AI utility has led to the creation of AI tools.
AI tools are computer programs that are designed to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence, such as learning, problem solving, decision making or perception. These tools are used in a variety of fields including business, healthcare, education and entertainment. One such AI tool is a virtual assistant which can handle tasks such as scheduling, email management, customer service, etc. These assistants use natural language processing to understand and respond to user requests and can be accessed through a variety of channels, such as a smartphone app or a website. Common examples of such AI are – Google Assistant, Siri, Alexa, Cortana, Bixby, etc.
AI tools can also be used in more specialized fields, such as medicine. For example, a specific type of AI tool can be designed which could be used to analyse medical images or to assist with diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Other than that, lately, there has been a widespread usage of two particular types of AI tools that require little to no computer knowledge and can be used even by amateurs to make lives easier.
Image Generating Bots and Chat Bots
Image generating bots are computer programs that use artificial intelligence to generate or create images. These images can be of variety of styles and subjects, and they can be generated from scratch or based on a set of input images or other data. These bots use machine learning algorithms to analyse and understand the features
and patterns in existing images and then use that knowledge to generate new images that are similar in style or subject matter. Some image generating bots are designed to even create photorealistic images while others are designed to create more stylized or abstract images. Some examples of image generating bots are:
- DeepDream – developed by Google, uses a convolutional neural network to generate surreal, dream-like images by modifying layers of a pre-trained network
- ArtBreeder – allows users to breed images by combining the features of two different images to create a new image.
- DALL-E – developed by OpenAI, it is capable of generating original images from random text descriptions. It is also the most commonly used image generating bot alongside QQBot.
Chat bots are computer programs designed to simulate conversations with human users, especially over the internet. Chat bots use artificial intelligence and natural language processing to understand and respond to user input, while some others are only basic, capable of completing only pre-programmed tasks. They are often used in combination with messaging apps, websites, or mobile apps to provide a convenient way for users to interact with a company or service. Some examples of chat bots include:
- Customer service chatbots – used by companies to answer customer questions and provide assistance.
- Entertainment chatbots – used for entertainment purposes such as playing games or telling jokes.
- Information gathering chatbots – used to gather information regarding various topics as requested by the user. These are some of the most popularly used AI bots and even among them, ChatGPT is regarded as the best and most convenient chatbot present out there.
ChatGPT: The Best AI Has to Offer?Imagine what if it was possible for your personal digital assistant to complete your college assignment of writing an 800-words long essay or explain in simple terms the concept of quantum mechanics instead of just reading it out from some website. Well, to one’s surprise, it has all been made possible now with the introduction of ChatGPT by OpenAI. ChatGPT is a large language model, trained on a massive trove of information online to provide users with lengthy, thoughtful and thorough responses to questions and prompts. It comes from the same company behind Dall-E and is also the next iteration of text- generation GPT-3.
ChatGPT, without a doubt, is a very impressive and powerful AI tool, but the important question here is, is it really the best? Not necessarily, as currently at the moment there doesn’t exist a single best AI that is adapt at performing all types of tasks. The concept of“best” is a subjective one and depends on the criteria being used to evaluate the AI system. For instance, a user looking for a bot with the utility to generate image based on texts will find ChatGPT to be completely useless and will instead consider Dall-E to be the better choice, whereas if the user is looking for a bot with the utility to research detailed information, ChatGPT is easily the best option available to that user. Hence, all in all, when it comes to information gathering chatbots, ChatGPT can be considered the best but when it comes to AI tools as a whole, it all depends on the users need and there is no single “best” AI available yet.
Be it ChatGPT or Dall-E, the introduction of such advanced AI tools has made the lives of people a lot easier. When it comes to the regular day to day tasks, there has been an increase in efficiency, decrease in labour costs, increase in accuracy and precision, etc. as a result of the implementation of AI. These AI tools however, also come with a few disadvantages attached to them. Issues such as displacement of jobs, lack of transparency and involvement of other ethical concerns are a given when it comes to the widespread application of AI. Lastly, it is difficult to predict exactly what the future of AI tools will look like, as it will all depend on the advances in technology and the ways in which AI is used. It is however, very likely that AI will continue to be integrated into a wider range of applications and industries. Some of these predictable future developments include – improved natural language processing, enhanced decision-making abilities, increment in medical application, increased usage in transportation, etc. The day isn’t far when detailed articles on various topics will be generated within mere seconds as a result of these AI.
