The Magic of Artificial Intelligence

By Adam Newton

Better Decisions Backed By Data

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

—Arthur C. Clarke

When you think of artificial intelligence, what do you imagine? It might bring to mind images of friendly robot sidekicks like R2-D2 or killer androids like the Terminator. But you likely use artificial intelligence, or AI, every day without realizing it.

When Netflix recommends a movie to watch, it’s using AI to match your viewing preferences. When Google Maps reroutes you around a construction site, it’s using AI to find the fastest route. Even your email inbox uses artificial intelligence to filter out spam messages and scan for computer viruses.

Rather than a plucky trash can or a killer Austrian bodybuilder, artificial intelligence is an everyday tool that’s designed to help you make better decisions, faster.

Let AI Be Your Guide

Going back to the Google Maps example, how many times did you get lost when driving before GPS navigation?

Think about all the information you have to process when driving. You have to consider speed limits, distance between your car and other vehicles, turn signals, exits,traffic reports, and a dozen other factors to safely reach your destination.

From where you sit in the driver’s seat, you only have a narrow view of the road ahead. You can’t physically zoom out and view the the entire trip from a bird’s eye view. All you have is your previous experience and your five senses. When driving somewhere new without GPS, you pretty much have to guess where to turn and if there’s a better alternate route; finding the fastest way to get from point A to point B is nearly impossible.

GPS navigation changed all of that. With GPS and artificial intelligence, drivers can take the guesswork out of finding the quickest route to reach their destination. Now an app in your console or on your phone is constantly scanning the roads to keep you informed. All you have to do is tell it where you want to go, and it will show you the fastest way to get there and estimate how long it will take.

When you stop to think about it, that’s pretty magical.
