Artificial Intelligence is very artificial indeed
Opinion Buzz words and the facts

Manufacturers - or vendors as I prefer to call them - have touted artificial intelligence (AI) almost since the beginning of the dawn of the computer. Which was 70 or 80 years ago, depending on how you're counting things.

Big Data is an old buzzword of the past. I'd like to focus my headlights and my ire on the artificial intelligence fib.

Just because you've got a gazillion gigglebytes of storage doesn't mean a computing algorithm – read interpreting software – can make any sense of it.

After all, every human and no doubt other mammals, lizards, insects and even plants have gazillions of storage. It doesn't mean – for example – that with our human brain and memory we can make sense of very much and connect up all the pieces.

It will take a genius – and probably a human genius at that – to make sense of all the bits that comprise intelligence. Yeah, maybe an alien could define the algorithm but personally I don't believe in aliens and don't care much for the term these days, given the fact that countless millions of human beings with gazillions of brain cells are shuffling round the world in search of a home.

The brainboxes at Cambridge – a prestigious university in England – define AI as “the study of how to produce machines that the human mind has, such as the ability to understand language, recognise picture, solve problems, and learn”.
