Artificial intelligence technologies - benefits for databases


Artificial intelligence is one of the emerging technologies that try to simulate human thinking in artificial intelligence systems. John McCarthy invented the term artificial intelligence in 1950.

He said: "In principle, any aspect of learning or any other attribute of intelligence can be described precisely so that the machine can simulate it. It tries to figure out how to make the machine use language, form abstractions, and concepts, and solve the problem now left to humans. Problems and improve yourself.”

Artificial intelligence is the ability of computer programs to learn and think. Everything can be called artificial intelligence when a program does something that we usually believe depends on human intelligence.

The benefits of artificial intelligence applications are enormous and can completely change any professional field. Let's take a look at some of them.

1) Human error reduction

The phrase "human error" was born because humans make mistakes from time to time. Computers, however, do not make these errors if they are correctly programmed. With artificial intelligence, decisions are carried out by the information collected previously that applies a specific set of algorithms. Therefore, errors are reduced, and achieving precision with a greater degree of accuracy is possible.

Example: In the weather forecasts using AI has reduced most human errors.

2) Take risks instead of humans

It is one of the most significant advantages of artificial intelligence. We can overcome many human limitations by developing a robot that can do risky things for us. Leave to Mars, deactivate a pump, explore the deepest parts of the oceans, mining for coal and oil, which can be used effectively in any kind of natural or artificial disaster.

Example: Have you heard of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant explosion in Ukraine? At the time, there were no artificial intelligence robots that could help us minimize the effects of radiation by controlling the fire early because anyone close to the core would die within a few minutes. Finally, they dumped sand and boron from the helicopter within a short distance. The AI robots can be used in situations where there is a danger of interference.

3) Available 24x7

An ordinary person works 4-6 hours a day without rest. People are accustomed to taking time out to cheer up and prepare for a new day of work. They even have a weekly break to keep their work and personal lives intact. But with artificial intelligence, we can keep machines running around the clock, and unlike humans, they don’t even get bored.

Example: Educational institutions and helpline centers receive many inquiries and questions that can be effectively handled through AI.
