AI stands for Artificial Intelligence. It is a computer mimicking intelligent human behaviour. A computer that accepts text, voice and visual input and generates a text, voice and visual output. Simple? Well, maybe.
When asked to generate an image of ‘a Victorian couple walking hand in hand across St Paul’s Square’, it will do just. Similarly, when asked to generate ‘a rhyming poem about a u3a couple’ it does just that.
You may have seen the Fakenews headlines or seen a video of an impersonation of someone. AI makes it easier for the Fraudsters to generate this misinformation.
Every time you pay for something using your bank card, the bank uses AI to validate the payment. Deliveroo uses AI to ensure your takeaway gets to you quickly. When you come through Border Control AI is checking your face against your passport photo.
Learn about the fascinating world of AI and its impact on society.
