Artificial intelligence and machine learning is here. It has integrated into current technology without many of us even realising. It has opened up countless possibilities with applications in everything from medicine to civil engineering to finance to social media networks.
As society advances, there is interest in giving technology systems their own form of intelligence to handle more complex problems – and to do so more efficiently.
Machine learning is the process that allows systems to evolve and adapt with the information they are made to interpret, they learn patterns and then use algorithms to interpret and make predictions from new data.
While there are many benefits to artificial intelligence and machine learning, many questions arise about potential ethical and security risks.
To help address and potentially answer these questions, here is a starter kit to artificial intelligence and machine learning.
