Artificial Intelligence: focus areas


Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?’ he asked.
Begin at the beginning,’ the King said gravely, ‘and go on till you come to the end: then stop.’

As Digital Architect at Microsoft, it is a great pleasure for me to have the opportunity of working on the Artificial intelligence area.

According wikipedia the Artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence exhibited by machines.

Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving” known as Machine Learning. The field was founded on the claim that human intelligence “can be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it”.

Capabilities currently classified as AI include successfully understanding:

human speech

competing at a high level in strategic game systems

self-driving cars

intelligent routing in content delivery networks

interpreting complex data

At Microsoft, researchers in artificial intelligence are harnessing the explosion of digital data and computational power with advanced algorithms to enable collaborative and natural interactions between people and machines that extend the human ability to sense, learn and understand. The research infuses computers, materials and systems with the ability to reason, communicate and perform with humanlike skill and agility.
