Artificial Intelligence (AI), the ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term is frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, discover meaning, generalize, or learn from past experience. Since the development of the digital computer in the 1940s, it has been demonstrated that computers can be programmed to carry out very complex tasks—as, for example, discovering proofs for mathematical theorems or playing chess—with great proficiency. Still, despite continuing advances in computer processing speed and memory capacity, there are as yet no programs that can match human flexibility over wider domains or in tasks requiring much everyday knowledge. On the other hand, some programs have attained the performance levels of human experts and professionals in performing certain specific tasks, so that artificial intelligence in this limited sense is found in applications as diverse as medical diagnosis, computer search engines, and voice or handwriting recognition.

So we refer artificial intelligence as an umbrella of technologies this is a very important concept now if you take an umbrella right it has a lot of metal rods application all these metal rods are connected 201 centralized form the the ethic may today right we have a lot of uh metal rods which are connected to the attic right so let’s say attic is the point

Which generate artificial intelligence right so why we refer it as umbrella of technologies they are a ample of ways so ample of technologies which will help us to achieve the same goal what is my goal generating artificial intelligence right in order to achieve that goal there are a lot of metal rods right all are connected to one centralized location right so we

Can use these uh multivaried techniques to achieve the same goal you can use neural networks uh you can use deep learning you can use machine learning you can use cognitive computing to achieve ai artificial intelligence goal but depending on the instance some technologies might be better than other right some technologies might be better over the other likewise

Ampicillin and amoxicillin example right if you take uh erythromycin your your disease will be cured but you will get gastritis but if you take e myc your disease is cured right and the possibility of getting gastritis will be also less right so likewise depending on the situation for a person who is having the history of gastritis usually doctor is not recommending

Erythromycin unless if you are allergy for them if doctor is giving erythromycin dr suggests take these gastritis medication as well parallel okay so that is the high level idea of umbrella of technologies so this artificial intelligence deep learning machine learning i would say this area is very beautiful very nice area and the most uh fascinating thing is you

Don’t have to buy heart right if you strive if you try to buy heart that is dangerous right then it is become very complex and it will be a very overloaded thing always try to map these concept with the real world analyze these things right you have to map and analyze and try to understand these things then you don’t have to then it will be very fascinating i’m not

Telling it’s easy there are very challenging things that we have to learn right they are very challenging concepts but it will become very uh what you call enjoyable for you to learn you have some high level idea about what is uh artificial intelligence and the umbrella of technologies concept now imagine an area where you cannot where you cannot apply ai right

It is e-commerce we have ai if it is manufacturing we have ai if it is automobile we have ai if it is banking we have air if it is healthcare we have a lot of ai right so that is why the demand for ai engineer size column right because mostly uh the rich countries like switzerland right sweden they are expecting very comfortable lifestyles right so there are a

Lot of automation is taking place uh when that automation is taking place actually those application development is coming to countries like sri lanka so that is how we are being benefited right so we get the benefit of developing applications for rich countries which will uh which will create opportunities uh for you to earn good salaries at the at the same time

Maybe migration opportunities as well i think with this situation in the country there are a lot of migrations taking place in i.t domain right and there are there is a lot of demand for it and ai is one of the very demanding area uh because you can see it is universally applicable right it has no restrictions or no limitations you can apply to any domain right so

Uh we will discuss and we will do several use cases as well when you are doing the course so uh i just took some coins here right so certain statistics right so in 2016 you might feel it might be a little bit of all the statistic but currently also it has not changed a lot right and you know uh technologies which are being utilized in america it will take three

Four years latency when it is being transmitted to countries the asian region right so uh it’s been it’s very very demanding right and you can see the shortage of the shortage for the professionals right there is lot of shortage for the professionals and it’s been identified as most lucrative job uh and uh who is telling that harvard university right through their

Analysis so so that is why uh there is high demand for ai concepts and job opportunities yeah there are some jobs i have listed few jobs that can be done uh as ai engineer right you can become a data scientist data engineer right machine learning engineer business analytics right business intelligence specialist consultant statistician right so i will share this

Slide you can zoom and read these things later on right so there are amp world of job opportunities available so i believe you might have got some high level overview about the discipline we are going to study right so this is just an introductory overview i just wanted to provide just to provide the high level overview about what are we are what are we going to study
