Artificial intelligence is the intelligent behavior by machines, rather than the natural intelligence of humans and other animals. Artificial Intelligence is defined as the study of intelligent agents in computer science. An intelligent agent is any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. Informally, 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 skills. From SIRI, CORTANA to autopilot cars of Tesla, the Artificial Intelligence is progressing and improving rapidly. While Science fiction movies often portray artificial intelligence as robots with human like characteristics only, the AI can encompass anything from Google’s search algorithms to IBM’s Watson to autonomous weapons. Artificial intelligence today is properly known as narrow AI (or weak AI), in that it is designed to perform a narrow task (e.g. only facial recognition, internet searches, learning or only self-driving cars). However, the long term goal is, of many researchers, to create a strong AI (general AI or AGI). While narrow AI may outperform humans at whatever its specific task is, like solving equations or playing chess, strong AI (AGI) would outperform humans at …show more content…

Its warehouse in China is run by just 60 robots. They work so efficiently that the productivity has increased by 3000%; these robots can carry up to 500 kilograms of weight. Each robot has a laser system to prevent crashes swith each other and other stuff in the warehouse and when these robots are about to run out of battery, they go to the charging ports in warehouse and charge themselves up. When someone places an order, one robot goes out and locates and picks out the product out of its 32,300 shelves. The robots are doing 70% of the work in the warehouse. Human labor only packs and dispatches the
