Artificial intelligence aims to simulate the work of the human brain, or at least it’s logic when it comes to making decisions. Jean-Claude Houdin, director of the research laboratory at IIM (Internet and Multimedia Institute), explains the origin of this research.
Artificial intelligence is being applied in a growing number of application areas.
Artificial intelligence (AI) consists of implementing a number of techniques to enable machines to imitate a form of real intelligence.
The idea was born in the 1950s thanks to mathematician Alan Turing.
In his book Computing Machinery and Intelligence, the latter raises the question of bringing machines into a form of intelligence.
He then describes a test known today as the Turing Test,
where a subject interacts with another human being,
and then with a programmed device to formulate meaningful responses.
If a person is not able to make a change, the device has passed the test and can be considered “intelligent” according to the author.
From Google to Microsoft via Apple, IBM, or Facebook, all the big companies in the computer world are now working on Artificial intelligence issues by trying to apply it to some specific areas.
Each set up networks of artificial neurons made from servers and used to handle heavy calculations in huge databases.

Some examples of the use of AI
Artificial visibility, for example, allows the device to accurately determine the content of the image and then automatically categorize it according to the object, color, or spotted face.
Algorithms are able to improve their calculations while conducting treatments.
This is how spam filters become more effective where the user identifies a spam message, or, on the contrary, handles false positives. Speech recognition is gaining momentum with virtual assistants able to copy words formulated in natural language and then process requests either by answering directly via speech synthesis, by simultaneous translation or by submitting a related request
Artificial intelligence, infinite potential
As this work progresses, Artificial intelligence moves from a simple public system to an automated financial management system in finance, a diagnostic assistant in medicine, and a risk assessment in bank loans.
Or insurance or a crucial military ally.
While in 2015 the AI market was valued at $ 200 million, It is estimated that in 2025, it will reach nearly $ 90 billion.
