Hey everyone πŸ‘‹

I hope you all are doing well 😊😊

When it came to the 4th week of writing an article (4 Articles 4 Weeks Writeathon) of our own choice, I thought I should write something interesting from which people can be aware of the misconceptions about AI and not only that. they can be acknowledged with some of the great and interesting facts about AI as well. ✌✌

There is a lot to cover on this topic, but It's really hard to cover in full. So, am gonna cover

So, stay till the end and enjoy πŸ€—πŸ€—


When someone uses the term β€œArtificial Intelligence,” the image evoked in most people’s minds is more like The Terminator than a real-world computer program. Our culture has heavily fictionalized artificial intelligence (AI), to the point that most people don’t consider it a reality. However, Artificial Intelligence may not be too far out of reach.

What is AI?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of a computer or a robot controlled by a computer to do tasks that are usually done by humans because they require human intelligence and discernment.

What are the types of AI?

There are three types of AI:

  • Narrow AI

  • General AI

  • Super AI

How AI Works?


AI uses algorithms and techniques such as machine learning and deep learning to learn, evolve, and get progressively better at assigned tasks. AI is categorized into three types based on the human characteristics it can replicate, its real-world applications, and the theory of mind prerequisites:

  1. Artificial narrow intelligence (ANI): AI with a narrow range of abilities

  2. Artificial general intelligence (AGI): AI on par with human capabilities

  3. Artificial superintelligence (ASI): AI that surpasses human intelligence

I'm not going into detail about the types of AI. If you wanna know more then surf about it. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Misconceptions About AI.

Six main misconceptions about AI are as follows: πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

  1. Machines learn by themselves.
  2. Machines are objective.

  3. AI is the same thing as machine learning.

  4. AI is not useful in my company.

  5. Super-intelligent machines will surpass humans.

Now the last and the most famous I am gonna cover that little bit more.

  • Will AI Take Over Jobs? 😲😲

In the majority of cases, artificial intelligence will not eliminate your job. Instead it will help to reduce the amount of boring, repetitive, and mundane tasks that you have to complete daily, therefore freeing up humans to spend more time on higher-level, more intellectually stimulating challenges.

As was the case with the automation and robotization of recent decades, it would be more accurate to say that AI technologies will replace some jobs and transform others. In other words, AI will profoundly change the nature of work, as was the case in previous industrial revolutions, but probably not reduce the overall number of jobs. Just like robotization made it possible to eliminate repetitive manual tasks, AI makes it possible to eliminate repetitive intellectual tasks, freeing up the capacity to work in a new and more intelligent way.

And just like robotization, AI can be more efficient than any human for certain tasks. Take, for example, an AI-based application for examining lung X-rays that can detect disease much faster and more reliably than radiologists.

πŸ‘‰ One short in which Elon Musk threatened AI has also gone famous. You can find it on every social platform.

Elon Musk says adopting AI is like β€œSummoning the Demon”. He believes that artificial intelligence can evoke the next world war and result in dominating the world and that robot leadership is a threat to the world.

Some Really Interesting Facts About AI.

Based on research and surfing, I have found these facts:

  1. Google CEO Sundar Pichai claimed that artificial intelligence (AI) would be more transformative to humanity as a species than electricity and fire.

  2. A McKinsey survey from 2021 found that 56% of companies have adopted AI in at least one function within the organization, which is an increase from 50% the year prior.

  3. Global corporate investment in AI rose from 67.85 billion in 2020 to 93.5 billion in 2021.

  4. Global revenues from AI for enterprise applications are projected to grow from $1.62B in 2018 to $31.2B in 2025.

  5. As reported by Gartner, by 2025, more than 75% of venture and seed capital investors will use AI and data analytics to gather information.

Advantages Of AI.

Some of the primary advantages of AI are as follows:πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

  • AI drives down the time taken to perform a task. It enables multi-tasking and eases the workload for existing resources.

  • AI enables the execution of hitherto complex tasks without significant cost outlays.

  • AI operates 24x7 without interruption or breaks and has no downtime.

  • AI augments the capabilities of differently abled individuals.

  • AI has mass market potential, it can be deployed across industries.

  • AI facilitates decision-making by making the process faster and smarter.
